    I think they're praying that Wilmer Flores is their guy at shortstop. He's got a .774 career minor league OPS with a modest amount of home runs but his last 2 seasons of AAA were in Las Vegas which...

    They're kind of screwed on this one. If you allow exemptions with a doctor's recommendation, you basically have to allow it for anyone who can get it. It's like allowing 'medical' exemptions for pot...

    I just don't see why they should sign any everyday players this off-season unless it's a catcher and/or a lefty or switch hitter who can play left-fielder well and cover center when needed. They need...

    I wish I'd known about this site a lot earlier in the summer:

    http://mlbfarm.com/index.php?team=CHC&date=2014-08-13

    Basically, it shows live box scores from all the games for any given team on...

    Fujikawa is heading to free agency. He has an unreported games finished vesting option (unreported as in nobody knows the threshold) and there's no way he'll reach it unless they set it at an...

    I think the juries out on Alex Gordon (in a good way). He's having a fantastic year. Otherwise, that's a really solid group of players, many of whom were studs as young players and many of those guys...

    What's funny is they could have brought Towers back if they'd waited a couple months.

    Just to add-on, I'm in the "too many outfielders" camp but my concern is also that they have too many right-handed hitters going forward and not enough guys who can cover center (in the short-term)....

    I feel like the Twins didn't completely lose the deal right away. It was trading Gomez and eventually trading Hardy (who they got for Gomez) that screwed them. The pitchers received in the deal...

    The Cubs are already in 5th in team HR this season with Bonifacio and Barney splitting time at 2nd to start the season and an outfield that was vomit-inducing for most of the year. It's scary what...

    It looks like Colby Rasmus is done in Toronto. The speculation is they won't extend him (he's been benched in favor or playing their younger guys in center) and he probably won't get a QO.

    When the Cubs make the playoffs or if they actually make the world series, he'll be able to write his ticket anywhere.

    I think the Pedroia example was simply to point out he was a prospect they liked who struggled for a while at the MLB level but they stuck with him and he made the adjustment he needed to make. This...

    What's funny is on his farewell podcast, he said something like "If I just go in there and start throwing [70's] on everybody, I'm going to be back here next year". He sounded genuinely excited about...

    It's really cool that he just forced scouts to pay attention by succeeding at every level. It's fun to have a guy like that on our team for a change (instead of a guy who scouts keep saying should be...

    I'm just glad they're still looking at team building as a process that happens over several years and that it's now time to invest in free agents but that there will also be a lot of talent available...

    What he actually said earlier was something to the extent of "keep the natural 3rd baseman at third" which doesn't really make sense if the "natural 3rd baseman" isn't going to be better at 3rd than...

    I think Castro is starting to figure out that he needs to be this guy, even though he's still young. When Baez was on the fringe of coming up and Castro was saying very encouraging words to the press...

    As far as I understand, the primary prospect writers (Mayo and Callis) don't actually do the in-season updates on MLB.com. That means Mayo and Callis could actually like him more or less or could be...

    He really isn't. The question is do you move the better or worse defender to left field and the answer is always move the worse defender because the return on having a better third baseman is going...

    Yes but that's never going to happen if you leave a poor third baseman at third and move a middle infielder to left field. You hamper your infield defense in the scenario he's talking about which...

    What we're saying is that years of data shows that most players who are not very good at third usually get better in a corner outfield spot, assuming they have the arm for it. I'm not talking in...

    I think bat speed was a bit of a concern with KLaw, too, at one point but he's come around on it?

    I'm not a scout but I don't see it at all. He seems to be able to hit anything.
