Gozzo is a nice bench piece, but I'm starting to overflow with those. Maybe Valdes turns into something interesting down the line.
CL Logan Bawcom, AAA
CF Anthony Gose, AAA
Mariners accept. One stopgap for another.
if my vote counts, and I"m unsure if it does(never quite got clarity on if i'm on the TC or not), I say veto

Gotta be careful not to need a league lawyer to interpret the rule for us. IF it isn't cut and dry it's probably not going to work out so well.
A difference that is certainly not actually worth arguing about or defending.
That is something I did not realize. I'll rescind my point about not having standing to apply it retroactively.
Yeah, they were the most extreme, but what of Jason Adams? Yasmani Grandal? Vaughn Bryan? MIguel Amonte? Starlin Castro?
All contracts that are at least 6 years long and averaging under 10...
I"m not saying we shouldn't outlaw it, but I"m not sure we can force existing contracts to be different at this point. Where do we stop exactly?
What standing does anyone have to void it? I doubt they are the only examples in the league.
Debate is going to happen generally when we vote yes on tanking and it has to be announced. If I'm going with a yes vote on tanking I do feel like the gm has a fair right to defend his actions and...
Can't speak for anyone else, but I've already cast my votes.
Being the last piece is not the same as the center piece. I'm hardly convinced any one piece was the centerpiece.
The point was that more than a few never got a real shot. I"m saying pretty outright that the selecting component of success for your middling to average is opportunity instead of talent. Can't prove...
You can quite easily argue the same thing about Samardzija that season as well. Hell you probably could have argued that right through to 2012.
I think it's more organizational philosophy than talent at producing prospects.
Simply put, most of the kids that get drafted are talented. The Cardinals do a very good job of making sure they...
Yeah, it's always hard to guess. BA's rankings and the Cubs rankings on prospects are not necessarily in sync. Hendry and co may have valued Samardzija higher than Gallagher by a wide margin and...
I suspect that if you looked at every team in the league you'd find way more touted prospects that failed than that succeeded. Its' probably luck more than ability that drives great prospects turning...
I sadly don't remember my reaction from way back in the day, though looking back it feels like a lot to give up for Harden if you aren't confident in his health. None of the four was a sure shot...
Don't know that I know that mcuh anymore. Havent' had the time to keep up.
Disagreeing with that there was a perception that Gallagher was an up and coming pitcher. We might have thought so, I have no doubt the GMs were well aware that he was more likely to get hurt or fail...
Not a ton in the Cubs forum. I've been participating in one of the OOTP leagues for I think six seasons now...maybe a year?
TNSTAAPP kids. Both sides knew the risks of Gallagher, and it was essentially impossible to predict how he'd work out. With pitchers that aren't your Priors or Strasburgs you basically pays your...
Don't care nearly that much.
