Any1 know how much hes worth??

He made $1,475,000 last season.

 

He probably won't start anywhere (anywhere that has anything near a winning record, at least).

 

The former Marlin-for-a-week should make less than that IMO. For a power hitter, his OPS is horrible, and his OBP doesn't even hit .310. Around $1 Mill sounds about right.

1-2 Mil.

 

Would be Great for off the Bench. Can Hit the Philly Fanatic if he wants...

If he hits The Phillie Phanatic, I kill him no questions asked...

 

Just a thought, obviously Choi and Simon probably never said a word to each other on The Cubbies so would that really make Choi feel comfortable?

Randall Simon - 1B - Chicago Cubs Dec 20

 

Cubs non-tendered first baseman Randall Simon. The Cubs are still working on getting Michael Barrett signed before tonight's deadline. Simon should be just a pinch-hitter, but some team might give him a chance to start at first base against right-handers. The Pirates are believed to be interested in bringing him back.

 

He could come cheaper than I expected...

I would rather sign Doug Mientkiewicz for 2 mil if he is non-tendered than Simon. Mientkiewicz is a lefty who gets on base alot with gold glove abilty and a line drive swing which is perfect for PPS.

That's IF he is non-tendered.

 

I would love Mien. He's from Florida, too.

 

He would start over Choi right from the get go. I mean, the guy hits .300 and gets on base at a .400 clip. Not to mention the fact that he could seemlessly (sp) replace Lee at 1B.

The Twins want to get rid of Doug? If they do, we beeter snatch him up. He played for FSU I believe.

I don't like the prospect of signing Simon. Choi is decent enough. He may struggle, but he'll still be worthy of a platoon role. And in that case I want Conine to get a breather at a first and a backup outfielder.

Plus, Simon WAS released by our AAA team a few years back for his attitude. Do we really need that problem in this clubhouse?
