He gave a speach at CSUF yesterday and I understand why he could never get the deal done. He is a great guy but he is mono tone and sucks ass at giving speeches. He kept loosing his train of thought..Quote, "I just lost my train of thought." He said that about 5 times then he would stand there and say "Um, so um" for like 20 seconds. I was actually really into the speach since my major is Sports Management but after 35 minutes my head was bobbing as I tried staying awake.
Finally when we were able to ask questions some one asked if we would get A-Rod. Stonemans Answer, "I cant say Yes or No so here is a little story. The Yankees offered him what I belive was 35Million a year. That is way more than what we can afford to offer him so you do the math." That dude said "Damb it" then walked out of the hall where Stoneman was giving the speach.
I asked if McPherson/Wood would get a shot at 3rd since Reagans worked with him and knows what he brings to the table. Stonemans Answer "Son the reason I let Troy Glaus go was because of McPherson's potential. Now Tony knows these kids like the back of his hand so he knows what they are capable of doing. He and Wood will get their fair shot at the position come spring trainning."
After his speach he stuck around and we all asked questions and I asked about Miguel Cabrera. He said they would look at the trade but if the asking price is too high and if it will effect our future then it will not happen. So I guess we are not getting any position players this offseason except Bonds.
Stoneman about Bonds, "He is obviously guilty of taking proformance enhancement drugs and if I were commitioner his ball would have an astrik on it."
Note Bad speller and dont have time to proof read cuz Im late for work.
