    Does Miguel get a choice in the matter?

    It's going to be interesting to see where everyone plays. I'm guessing Bryant is sticking at third. Baez and Alcantara are the only other options (non-olt). I believe LaStella can only play second.

    No. It said mlb pieces back.
  4. If you're going to devalue the asset by letting...

    If you're going to devalue the asset by letting it sit in triple a, then why not try to maximize the value now before the season starts? I prefer to let both kids play, but if you really feel that...
  5. I would rather they part with either Baez or...

    I would rather they part with either Baez or Alcantara and get a legitimate upgrade than get Fowler and send one of them down.
  6. I don't see the 1 win upgrade (maybe) being worth...

    I don't see the 1 win upgrade (maybe) being worth 9 million and whatever we give up in trade. I'm not against adding him, but anyone who sees it as a slam dunk improvement is assuming a poor season...

    To a degree, I would like another bat. However, I'm ready to see the kids play. There's no point in accumulating the talent that we have without giving it a shot, unless it's being traded for...
  9. I don't think we get even one starting OF unless...

    I don't think we get even one starting OF unless we trade Valbuena. LF is reserved for Bryant and I don't see them putting Alcantara on the bench to start the season. The guy can contribute in too...

    Espn said they think the shooting may have stemmed from an argument between his brother and a government official
  12. I'm fine with going out once. Going out 3 weeks...

    I'm fine with going out once. Going out 3 weeks after you were just involved in a shooting incident seems to not be an exercise in good judgement.
  13. We hope he didn't do anything. But at some point...

    We hope he didn't do anything. But at some point the risks associated with his behavior, entourage, security, family, or whatever else you feel may be the issue have to be considered. It's highly...

    I'd agree but his K rate actually dropped a little bit as well. However, if the general consensus is that he's this bad, I'm not sure there is any value in trading him.

    If i were to get shot at twice a month in my hometown, I would relocate myself and my family to a new hometown.

    Maybe we need to explore a Castro swap before we either get Aaron Hernandez'd or...
  16. 7.8% and 7.9% the last two years in the minors. ...

    7.8% and 7.9% the last two years in the minors. But definitely not 8.0%. He wound up at 6.6% after walking only 3.4% in August. People can say he can't adjust, but he nearly tripled his walk rate...

    Baez walked 9.7% of the time betwee Sept and Oct. It's a stat he's shown improvement upon the last few seasons.
  18. Steamer has him at 1.3 wins while providing...

    Steamer has him at 1.3 wins while providing negative value with his bat. I think he has somehow went from the most overrated prospect to the most overlooked in a single year.
  19. So you think Baez is replacement level or worse...

    So you think Baez is replacement level or worse this year?
    I'm fine with upgrading the OF, but I'm not sure who you're benching between Alcantara, Bryant, Soler, or Valbuena? I'm fine with...

    I read everything Doogs types in a Samuel Jackson voice. Particularly from his Chappelle Show beer skit

    Its called sarcasm steel. People are complaining about rumors and speculation

    Maybe it's more likely a 70 win team than a 90 win team , but I'd say its significantly more likely we win 85 than 75.

    Let's close the rumors thread then. Replace it with contract signings and trade details. Have to stop all this damn speculation.

    It might give us a little bit of insight into how they value pitch framing. We just added a guy who K's 31% of the time against his favorable platoon split while attempting to increase our team OBP....

    Maybe they had to move on Ross before someone else signed him, and they hadn't found the return they wanted yet. I'm surprised that he's still a Cub. The 3 scenarios I can think of right now are
