Poor Joe Beimel

Joe Beimel had to settle for a minor league contract with the Colorado Rockies. The lefty has a lifetime ERA of 4.23, but that's inflated due to his first 3 years in Pittsburgh (5.00 ERA). Over the past 4 seasons Beimel has posted ERA's of 2.96, 3.88, 2.02, and 3.58, while also proving to be durable (287 games in same span). So why only a minor league offer? Greed. He was holding out for a contract similar to what he had last year with Washington (1 yr $2M), but in this deflated market for league average relief pitchers that's not really the going rate. So much like Johnny Damon overplaying his worth and holding out for a bigger contract to get slapped in the face and having to settle with a low-ball offer, Beimel does now too. He'll likely make the Rox roster because of Huston Street's injury, but my guess is that he had contract offers out there far more lucrative than the one he just inked yesterday.

Did you ever think he wanted to play for a winner? He took less money to play for the Rox. The Mets had a more lucritive contract on the table, but who wants to play and have to live in that mess of a city??? ...idiot

Wait, are you calling me an idiot?

I don't blame him for not signing with the Mets, they blow, but I would have to think he could have done better than a minor league deal.

I think the deal was pretty much a lock with Houston Streets injury.
