I shall be in this league.
I think you're being a bit picky with the middle infielder thing. Ahmed has a 65 glove and would probably provide positive value in the event he's needed, bat or no bat. Who cares what his age is? An...
Wood for Nick Ahmed. Grimm for Aaron Loup. Welington for whatever. Boom. Roster.
I like Loup for Grimm a lot actually.
This will surely appeal to the 10 year old female PSDers.
Without looking it up, I'd imagine the upgrade from Jose Hernandez and Tom Goodwin to Aramis and Kenny Lofton was worth at least the one win that won the division.
I don't believe managers salary has anything to do with the luxury tax threshold either. It's just money out of the owner's pocket with no penalty. I agree that if they made a major difference,...
Well, Kyle is saying things, can't let him get away with that, right? If he keeps expressing his opinion, people might accidentally think critically about the team.
If anything, Valbuena needs to step his bat flip game up.
I'd bet that this will happen. I see him coming in with at least 3 fwar, barring major injury. I have no doubt that the talent is there.
You, in real life, for one. Also on this board, if you'd like me to do some digging.
Immigration is just that easy, apparently.
Fowler is one of my favorite players and I've spent about three years arguing his merits. Love the trade, hope we can extend him.
Strop for Bradley? Maybe Castillo and Wood for De Fratus to offset that?
Bradley isn't talked about enough here, at least as compared to the Ben Reveres in the world. It would take 2-3 injuries for him to even sniff the field in Boston, whereas he'd stand a chance to be...
Leonys Martin is good. Texas could do much better than Castillo.
The last time the Cubs acquired an outfielder for whom I have such a strong appreciation, it was Ryan Sweeney. So do with that what you will.
That was TA3 talking to Matusz.
Defense does not get more difficult. The bar for what is deemed acceptable defense is raised. A good college defender may not be a good professional defender relative to his peers. I don't know how...
Welington Castillo and Travis Wood for Kyle Parker and Boone Logan
(edit: my idea, not an actual thing)
It would make a ton of sense to package Welington with a non-Arrieta/Hendricks/Lester/Hammel/Edwards/Johnson starter of Colorado's choosing for one of their surplus outfielders. Stubbs kind of sucks...
I hate to complain about every move that's been made since the Lester signing - I dislike the Motte and Ruggiano moves - but.....2 year deal? Really?
The Rangers make sense too. Thompson, Jackson, Asher.....others that I'm forgetting.....
I like it for Oakland. Hahn seems legit.
This trade is awful. That's all I have.
