    Who cares. The manager market is just as thin as the FA market this year. It'll just be another 2 year garbage time guy and we all know it.

    I say with the trend of players without experience...

    Anyone who thinks this Shark to AZ has legs is an idiot. Let me break the phone call down for you:

    Theo: "Hi Kev, great WS huh?"
    Kev: "Yup."
    Theo: " So remember you wanted Shark? Still want...

    Agreed. I'd make a run at Matt Kemp before Trumbo. Hell, I'd probably take Andre Ethier over Trumbo. And I'm not sold on Bourjos either, I still see him as a 4th OF. Kendrick would be great, but if...

    No more Timmy time talk. I think this cements the FO putting in a decent bid for Tanaka. Now, they HAVE to. They can't afford to lose out like they did on Darvish. Pitching is scarce enough. Even if...

    No way. Baltimore's not stupid. You'd have to kick in a lot more to get Bundy regardless, they're not going to sell low on him. I think you'd have to throw in Barney and Russell to get that deal...

    Then please tell me you've heard Ricketts is going to sell the team to Mark Cuban. That would be the mother of all good rumors.

    Awful post? They have WS rings, multiple playoff appearances, or all of the above. Acta has a shiny head, Pena has a mustache.

    These young players need an old school manager to kick their *****...
  8. True, but these two are what I'd consider...

    True, but these two are what I'd consider exceptions. Stanton is a young, controllable, powerful player unhappy with his team. And Matt Kemp, when healthy, there's none better. Choo can get on base,...

    I think this is the turning point year. Not necessarily in the standings, but a turning point in the FO. Time's running out for Theo. I don't thing we'll sign a massive FA although I do think we'll...
  10. With you on Tanaka. Not so sure about the other...

    With you on Tanaka. Not so sure about the other 2. We have good specs for OF in Almora, Soler, possibly Bryant or any number of the IF specs with bad D like Baez. Not to mention Lake wasn't that bad....

    How the hell did we go from Joe Girardi to Pena and #!$%@# Acta?!

    Give me Charlie Manuel. Hell, give me Ozzie Guillen over these 2. At least Ozzie could make the playoffs. I think I would rather...

    Charlie Manuel would be interesting. I think our guys need that old school mentality. I'd take him over Hinch or Acta.

    Eric Wedge would be interesting, but not a top choice. I was hoping the...

    If you're going to bring that up, you might as well put in Konerko at 5. Ouch.

    Prove me wrong. Because I have a LONG list of pitchers from the last 5 years that proves me right. TJ surgery is standard fair these days, and the way Cashner throws, I all but guarantee it's coming.

    Kendrick, yes. Hamilton, god no. Hamilton is by no means done, don't get me wrong. I just don't want to hear him crying about being blue eyed and having to hit during the day in Wrigley of all...

    Exactly, so let's follow modern pitching's timeline: He has a great season at 28, gets an extension, blows out his arm at 29 and gets TJ, comes back at 30, pitches a so-so year, then an above average...

    I know, he's still more versatile. Both are IF, but if memory serves David played in the OF as well and wasn't bad.

    Love Murphy, he'd be a good fit, make Barney expendable, and is more versatile defensively.

    Hughes,not so much. He'd not dumb either, he'll go to petco to inflate his stats and get a multiyear...

    I'm all for Stanton, but not at the price Loria will want. We all know Loria won't pay him, and is just playing hard to get given the options for FA this winter. I would do something like Soler or...

    I hope we don't trade Wood (good LHP is hard to come by), or Rizzo (he's had a "fair" season, we all knew he wasn't going to win the triple crown or anything).

    After this year though, I'm all for...

    Man, Howie Kendrick's available. That's tempting, even now. Affordable, good offense and D, I'd love to pick him up. Too bad LAA's farm system is so depleted, I'd send Shark there for Kendrick and a...

    I was having some fun tonight, thinking what I would do if I was Brian Cashman right now. He's got to know it's over for the Yankees for a while. They have nothing. Not a great farm system, aging...

    Nate's kind of grown on me too, I dig his shut up and play mentality. I understand if he fetches a great return, but I'd rather see Dejesus gone if I had to choose.

    Ryan Braun is different than...

    I think the FO will kick the tires on Lincecum, for sure. And I'm not opposed to that, because if he did find himself, he'd be a huge asset to move at a deadline. I'd go 2/26 on him, maybe kick in...

    Molina will be 36? Interesting math since he's only 31. Cards will always be a threat with their farm system and lack of parting with specs.
