"Support this team at your own risk"

John Perricone at Only Baseball Matters has a bracing analysis of the Mark DeRosa deal, asserting that it's more of the same kind of signing of a mediocre player. As usual, John doesn't pull his punches in a direct response to the ongoing incompetence of Brian Sabean. I think he makes excellent points -- particularly given that Giant fans have plenty of options on how to spend their time and money. Anyhow, he believes that Sabean is giving the fans a big "F.U." Here's part of his response --

After over 45 years of watching other teams celebrate championships (including teams that didn’t even exist when the Giants moved to San Francisco), other teams draft, develop and support championship-level players while you throw away draft choices and go out of your way to acquire one bum after another…. you should be ashamed of yourself. You and the San Francisco Giants ownership group, –every single one of you– should hang your heads in shame, as you go through the motions, pretending to be interested in ending a drought that has lasted the entire time the team has been in this city.

Whatever the case might be with the Giants' ownership, it reflects poor judgment on your part to reprint sections from and direct readers to a website whose author expresses himself in such a low manner. Insofar as I am a Giants' fan, it makes me ashamed to think that I would be part of a group that includes the author of Only Baseball Matters and you (for reprinting his work).

Anonymous, we are going to have to agree to disagree. I believe John expresses himself quite astutely. If you don't like it, I'd suggest that you not visit this site.

Happy New Year, just the same.

Anonymous should note that anytime Big D references another story (which is quite often), he will give the reader the option to go to that site themselves, which is actually the professional thing to do. Anonymous, apparently doesn't know this.... um, no surprise, given that this was probably the only post he/she read or would have known that.
