Bet on bust.
Getting back injured players is not an excuse to not improve the team as much as possible.
Cuddyer is good, but hardly a guy that a team looking to win 10+ more games than they did a year ago...
Well they may trade Murphy for cash considerations.
Maine had nothing but his fastballs and couldn't get anyone out without throwing 6-7 pitches. But at his best, around 2007, he was still a very effective pitcher with minimal secondary offerings.
I always root for this team to win and play their best game no matter what the circumstance.
That said, I want them to focus primarily on the run and 3 step drop passing this week.
I think it's...
I get the distinct bad feeling that the Tulo talk is smokescreen for nothing.
I hope I'm wrong, because that guy is worth the gamble for this team right now.
How is that the Padres can get Kemp AND Upton, and we can't do better than Cuddyer with all of our minor league depth?
What is going on?
I do chemo, not the fun stuff.
So is Tulo a Met yet?
Brandon Nimmo tears up AAA, gets a call up in July and puts the team over the top.
He was 20 and made a straight AA to majors jump mid-season.
I was very impressed by what I saw of Herrera in the majors. It's not easy to hold your own doing what he did.
That would be nice. If he can actually hit in the majors he would at least be a solid bat against LHP.
So here are 2 possible outcomes we can see after the season. Tell me which one you guys would prefer.
1) Giants clean house - New GM who can bring in his own new HC and staff. Reboot the whole...
Have at it.
Olines been good these last two games. Was solid against Jags until Schwartz and Brewer both went down (no surprise thats when they lost the game).
Next year with...
Give Eli a receiver he has confidence and he looks like a Pro Bowler even without much O-line help.
Get this man a real OL next year, give him Cruz back, and go to war.
Well that was a strange play call.
Can't wait for this team to have a real offensive line again so we don't need trick plans on 4th and 1.
Cowher hasn't coached in 8 years.
The guy was a great coach and I'm not saying he can't coach anymore, but 8 years out of any line of work is not a good thing.
He seems to have gone the way of...
I'm not sure Tulo will cost Wheeler/deGrom AND Thor plus Darno.
I'd believe Darno + Thor/Wheeler/deGrom.
I'd even believe Duda + Thor/deGrom + lower level spect.
Would you make either of...
Yes I would.
But what's the package? Duda and Noah? Duda and Wheeler?
Can you definitively say yes to all of those things?
I'm not saying it can't happen. I'm saying banking on all of those things to happen is not an excuse to not add some more upgrades to the...
No I'm not. I think the depth will be a major strength. My only concern is that I think the immediate major league roster talent, as is, is not quite there yet. I still think they can use another...
Also, deGrom is likely to regress. Wheeler may improve somewhat. Harvey is a huge question mark, though we hope he's an upgrade overall.
There's more unpredictability of this pitching staff than...
Maybe. If all breaks right. But there's a lot of big "ifs" in your "should" predictions.
All I'm saying is, I'd like the chains to move a little further this winter so we're not so exposed and...
