Great link. Mayo takes a very fair look at the good and bad of Tabata. THe more I think about this trade, the more I realize his last paragraph is RIGHT ON. If we are going to continue to lose year after year, let's take a leap of faith on some guys. Risk vs. Reward attitude is better than an not taking any risks at all. Anyway, I'm in.... Go Tabata!!!!!! My God are we due for some reversal of fortunes!!!!!!!!!

He's got talent for sure, but seems like a headcase. I'm all about taking risks though.

I have a 19 year old. Every night this summer, my basement has been full of 19 year olds. They're all head cases to one degree or another. I know I was at that age.

IMHO, Tabata is a risk worth taking. But only because Bobby Hill wasn't available....

Oh come now ... you can't get a player like Bobby Hill for Nady/Marte. It takes a superstar like Aramis Ramirez for that.

Burger and Az - so true about 19-year old males. Studying for a calculus test, or doing assigned reading? No doubt. But my concern is that baseball is not one of those things where my son (16) needs to be "motivated" or loses his focus. He likes it too much.

And my son and his companions are waaaaaay too competitive to give a half-hearted effort in any sporting event - darts, whiffle ball, mini golf, etc. I know since I have been with them during such events. They compete like it is the 7th game of the World Series.
