    I agree, but the argument was how to prevent the QO from hurting players without removing it entirely. A similar argument could be made for redistributing the draft pool so that your first round...
  2. Wouldn't the simplest solution be to keep the...

    Wouldn't the simplest solution be to keep the draft pick compensation for QO but do away with draft pools and allow teams to spend at will? This still gives additional picks to your Oakland / Tampa...
  3. I believe the Braves pick is protected, so if...

    I believe the Braves pick is protected, so if they won't give up a 2nd rounder for him it seems more likely that they don't want to risk additional wins this year moving them down the draft order.
  4. As much as the QO hurts Fowler, I'd argue his...

    As much as the QO hurts Fowler, I'd argue his value is suppressed more by the number of teams sitting out free agency. The Braves, Phillies, Reds, Brewers etc do not want the marginal wins a player...
  5. I would say it's a combination of draft picks...

    I would say it's a combination of draft picks being overvalued (not necessarily because of the pick itself, but because of slot value) and a larger percentage of NL teams rebuilding/tanking than...
  6. I completely agree. I'm expecting nothing from...

    I completely agree. I'm expecting nothing from him at this point, but he'd be an excellent solution for the bench if he could put it together.
  7. In a perfect world, I'd prefer Contra become...

    In a perfect world, I'd prefer Contra become efficient with the bat and fill the last bench spot with his versatility.
  8. I wouldn't say it's necessarily hatred towards La...

    I wouldn't say it's necessarily hatred towards La Stella. For me, it's more that La Stella is a limited defender for a utility infielder and Coghlan can play 2nd in the absolute case of an emergency....

    Does Miguel get a choice in the matter?

    It's going to be interesting to see where everyone plays. I'm guessing Bryant is sticking at third. Baez and Alcantara are the only other options (non-olt). I believe LaStella can only play second.
  11. No. It said mlb pieces back.

    No. It said mlb pieces back.
  12. If you're going to devalue the asset by letting...

    If you're going to devalue the asset by letting it sit in triple a, then why not try to maximize the value now before the season starts? I prefer to let both kids play, but if you really feel that...
  13. I would rather they part with either Baez or...

    I would rather they part with either Baez or Alcantara and get a legitimate upgrade than get Fowler and send one of them down.
  14. I don't see the 1 win upgrade (maybe) being worth...

    I don't see the 1 win upgrade (maybe) being worth 9 million and whatever we give up in trade. I'm not against adding him, but anyone who sees it as a slam dunk improvement is assuming a poor season...

    To a degree, I would like another bat. However, I'm ready to see the kids play. There's no point in accumulating the talent that we have without giving it a shot, unless it's being traded for...
  17. I don't think we get even one starting OF unless...

    I don't think we get even one starting OF unless we trade Valbuena. LF is reserved for Bryant and I don't see them putting Alcantara on the bench to start the season. The guy can contribute in too...
  18. Maybe finally a Castillo swap?

    Espn said they think the shooting may have stemmed from an argument between his brother and a government official

    I'm fine with going out once. Going out 3 weeks after you were just involved in a shooting incident seems to not be an exercise in good judgement.
  21. We hope he didn't do anything. But at some point...

    We hope he didn't do anything. But at some point the risks associated with his behavior, entourage, security, family, or whatever else you feel may be the issue have to be considered. It's highly...

    I'd agree but his K rate actually dropped a little bit as well. However, if the general consensus is that he's this bad, I'm not sure there is any value in trading him.
  23. If i were to get shot at twice a month in my...

    If i were to get shot at twice a month in my hometown, I would relocate myself and my family to a new hometown.

    Maybe we need to explore a Castro swap before we either get Aaron Hernandez'd or...

    7.8% and 7.9% the last two years in the minors. But definitely not 8.0%. He wound up at 6.6% after walking only 3.4% in August. People can say he can't adjust, but he nearly tripled his walk rate...

    Baez walked 9.7% of the time betwee Sept and Oct. It's a stat he's shown improvement upon the last few seasons.
