Boo, I think Tauchman is legit and I've been rooting for him as a darkhorse candidate to steal a starting job.

Welp, I guess Juan Gonzalez remains the king of "Oops. Shoulda signed at the previously offered deal." -- but at least Jody Reed is now long gone from the travails of players that shoulda signed while the signing was good.

I think the Rox had previously offered 4/80, no?

I'd rather have Gonzalez on the roster than Parra or Desmond, but there's no going back from those mistakes at this point.

The problem with CarGo from a roster-building standpoint is that everyone who's likely to start in the Rox outfield is a lefty hitter - Blackmon, Parra, Dahl and Tapia. CarGo doesn't provide an alternative to any of those guys (neither does Tauchman, for that matter).

The article says he was offered 3/$45 last spring. Still a big oops.

Rule #1 of free agency: don't have a below-replacement contract year. Still, while I wouldn't bet on it, there's a reasonable chance he'll be better than Jay Bruce.

CarGo never said there was something wrong with him last spring, but after being horrible for the first half of the season, he was his old self in the second half, going .314/.390/.531. I doubt if he is ever going to be an MVP candidate again, but I think he's going to be fine.

#6: So he did ... which tells us how horrible that first half was. It also took a 390 BABIP to post that 2nd half line but still it's encouraging.

They shoulda clutched CarGo when they had the chance.

I hope this is wrong, but Tauschman might make the team over David Dahl?

In the deal, they should get him to do a segment in each broadcast in which he makes observations about the game or gives batting tips to kids. And it will be called ... CarGo Shorts.

Could also be a financial advice show.
