Beason traded?

1,055 posts in this topic

If he fails the physical that's gonna be awkward as poo. What do you do then, cut him? Or keep him around knowing we just tried to dump him?

I wonder if he passes the physical.

I'm intrigued by that as well.

I played sports my whole life and have some college rings to show for it.

We had a couple of smart bench players who went on to other coaching staffs.

When they graduated, we still won titles.

 

Were you best friends with any of them?

 

Just think how it would make you feel if they told you that they were cutting your friend?

 

You figured it was their senior year so they would be safe... but they ended up getting cut anyway.

 

This is essentially what happened to Beason.

Honestly, this is really a stupid trade, and anything other than Nicks, WHICH WAS HIGHLY UNLIKELY AND IMPROBABLE, isn't enough. I don't care if Beason is still relatively unhealthy... He's a good influence on other players and is an invaluable presence in the locker room. He keeps morale up and provides leadership, even if he isn't able to play.

So, we just have possibly the biggest (both literally and figuratively) win in franchise history, possibly shifting an overwhelming amount of momentum in our favor that could possibly carry us into a rare winning streak, and you trade away a locker room favorite and team leader???

And we trade him for nothing? Basically, a favor for his old team... I don't care if he has little to no value elsewhere, he has value in the locker room here and the odds are highly skewed in the direction that we will not get anything close to Beason on the field or in the locker room with a shitty late round pick.

Stupid trade at a even dumber time to do it. Huge strike against Gettleman if all we get is a late-round pick, IMO.

I have to disagree sir. Beason was done we all saw it. His leadership may be hindering luke from becoming the true defensive leader. Even with him gone we still have td this team doesn't lack defensive leaders. Getting anything for beason a guy we benched who may never be the same is a win for both sides. Beason even when healthy never looked good outside. A mlb position for beason could be the best thing for his career.

Have you considered that maybe this is what Beason wants?

 

A fresh start on a team in which he will get an opportunity to show he can still play MLB effectively?

 

I'll bet Jon was asked his opinion before Gettleman agreed.

Beason was set to have a $10 million cap hit in 2014, even after the restructure this year.

I just want to remind all you "fans" that when Kueckly was drafted, there were a lot of boos, groans, and whining. 

 

AWWW MAN WHY DIDNT WE PICK FLETCHER COX

 

WE DONT NEED ANOTHER LB WTF HURNEY

 

Nobody on this website wishes anything bad towards Beason. We all wish him the best. Times change and this nostalgia BS is a serious Achilles heel (no pun intended) to this fan base. 

 

Hell there were groans here when we drafted Beason. A lot of them. We had Dan Morgan and most people wanted Reggie Nelson or Brandon Merriweather.

The sad part is: If/when Beason plays for the Giants, and performs so bad he eventually doesn't play for them, many of the same people criticizing this deal now will say "Whew, I'm glad we were able to trade him away form something/anything when we had the chance". SMH

 

He was that bad, unfortunately.

These players understand that this is a business. I know he was well liked and a leader, but he had arguably the worst contract in franchise history, his replacement was drafted and has emerged as one of if not the best mlb in the league, and when they tried to move him to a new position he struggled mightily. And that's when he has actually been on the field, which has been far too infrequent.

Sucks this went down, but the writing has been on the wall for some time now.
