In what is obviously a sick joke, the Orioles did this.
What are they doing? They are paying Cesar Izturis 1.5 million dollars to be the club’s utility infielder. I don’t understand it all unless it is a joke to get back at the people like us who bash Cesar. Cesar Izturis is an awful major league baseball player. We are paying him over 3 times the league minimum salary to do the same job as Robert Andino would at the league minimum. Money aside I would probably prefer Andino, but he is also cheaper, younger, and with more upside. I was really, really, really hoping to never have to watch Izturis flailing away helplessly at the plate in an Orioles uniform. All the positive momentum they had going with me has now been killed. The Orioles clearly did this just to spite me.
We need some good news soon to offset this giant dagger.
