    I'm not talking about here. I mean on ESPN and the like. Kluber has gone fairly under the radar, too, given the season he's having.

    Only after he takes a no-hitter into the 7th or 8th. So just a few times this year.

    It just seems like you don't hear much about his breakout season compared to, say, Kluber's.

    Has anyone in baseball been as quietly dominant as Arrieta this season?
  4. Sticky: American players are scouted a million times more...

    American players are scouted a million times more extensively and they're still huge question marks. These are guys in their mid-20's playing against teenagers in a league equivalent to A/A+. The...

    It is when you're signing unproven MLB players out of a country where players are particularly difficult to scout extensively. It absolutely is. Why shouldn't it be?

    Abreu was putting up 1.600 OPS seasons in Cuba. Hoping to find the next Abreu by signing players nowhere near as good as Abreu is kind of silly.
  7. Sticky: Maeda and Tomas are both going to get the...

    Maeda and Tomas are both going to get the unreasonable "other guys from the same country were good recently" bump.
  8. Sticky: I have zero expectations for a guy who was...

    I have zero expectations for a guy who was "pretty good" as a 25-year-old in his fifth season in a league considered comparable to A/A+. If he were an American player with the equivalent minor league...

    It'll be nice if the market chills the hell out when Rusney Castillo is a bust.

    The difference is that I don't think he has any desire to trade Hamels. He's asking for as much as he possibly can from whoever comes calling so he looks like he's doing his due diligence.

    And I...

    Our Front Office & Future Contention

    Even so, he couldn't have made a more absurd demand from their system, and I see him going for proportional absurdity from our system as opposed to equivalent value. Since our top prospects are...

    Didn't he want all three of them? Baez is the most valuable of the bunch, but asking for those three just seems so unrealistic I can't imagine his demand ever being reasonable.
  15. how often do teams win the world series after making a blockbuster trade?

    No, when all is said and done usually the Cardinals just sort of back into the thing and win it.

    If you're thinking Baez and nobody else we'd greatly regret losing for Hamels, I'm not too terribly against that. I've been assuming Amaro will hold out for much more than that, though.

    Ideally, you would have Span as the starting CF with Alcantara as a super-sub who is in the lineup most days. With a team as young as this, it's probably best to give some of these guys plenty of...

    The sarcasm would play better if I wasn't seeing names like Nick Markakis floated as good ideas. Or this obsession with a 3B for whom "hitting his weight" could reasonably entail a .300 average.

    This is where I'm at on Olt. He's demonstrated that he's not a starter, but his power is too intriguing to give up on after a bad MLB stint where he was also incredibly unlucky. Not many clubs can...

    You can almost see it with the body type and physical tools, but Soler just has so much more talent.

    The point is he made an inefficient trade and effectively gifted them a good starter without extracting reasonable value for it. Us saying "we have so many good prospects we can afford to spend them...

    Free agents are going to get signed. Spending inefficiently on one isn't any bigger boon to his former team than if he'd signed a friendly deal. If they have a good player becoming a free agent and...

    Am I mistaken about the new comp pick system? The other team no longer receives your first round pick, I thought. You just lose it and they gain a pick after the first round.

    Agreeing to a long term deal with him isn't going to be some team-friendly extension. Whoever said it was right; the cost for Stanton isn't just the prospects. It's the prospects plus whatever else...

    I don't really follow why saving money in 2019 is a huge deal when that's the point at which we can presumably start wiping our organizational *** with money.
