Continuing on the discussion thread -
Here's who we got:
Nick Johnson - .167 avg. and a trip to the 15 Day DL
Marcus Thames - .382 avg (good), but fielding has proven to be suspect
Javier Vazquez - 1-3, 9.78 ERA
Here's who we've let go:
Austin Jackson - .366 avg. .414 obp. and 6 Sbs
Johnny Damon - .288 avg. .403 obp.
Phil Coke - 3-0 1.76 ERA
Ian Kennedy - 2-2, 3.48 ERA
Tyler Clippard (remember him?): 6-0 0.76 ERA!!!
Matsui - .237 avg. 4 HRs
Jose Tabata: .345 avg. (AAA)
Jeff Karstens (you didn't really think I wasn't going to mention him did you?): 1-1, 4 ERA
Conclusion: Sometimes it is better to leave well enough alone and not over tinker with a line up.
