Getz him out of here

So, why the discussion about the White Sox fans and Juan Pierre, et al? Well, let’s temper that PECOTA Beta projection a bit, and assume that Getz also gets caught stealing a couple more times in 2010, and say that given 700 PA, he’d hit something like:

.280/.340/.390, with 40-6 on SB attempts.

The White Sox inexplicably decided to replace the above stat line from a nearly-average 2b defender with a left fielder whose average stats (per 700 PA) the past 5 years have been:

.289/.334/.364, with 58-18 on SB attempts.

And the replacement will cost $3 million in 2010 and %5 million in 2011. Getz will cost $400 thousand each year.
