I have lived in Seattle for a long time now, and have watched many a bat flip in my time at SAFECO family oriented field. Bret Boone is not the super star that he was for roughly two seasons worth of games during a three year period. However, he still has a lot of pop in his bat, and its hard to believe that he doesnt have enough of his former (can we say steroids?) talent to still put up better numbers than our current guys. We need some right handed pop and maybe boone could provide us what ginter has thus far failed to deliver. I dont know how we would do this, but boone is a FA and we only have to pay him league minimum, I believe, while the Mariners eat up the rest of his contract. Seems like it would be worth a shot. And Id love to see boone on the A's, it would just make me laugh. Also Boone's defense is excellent, and though it has been a little shaky ast times i think his defense is still quite good.
Does anyone else think this would be a good idea?
