    For trade purposes, the "filler" guys need to to be guys that are Rule 5 eligible that are not going to be part of this franchises future. We need to put the other on our 40 man roster.

    No to Venable. He's not good. Parra would be a very nice pickup.
  4. Sticky: It's all good, bro.

    It's all good, bro.

    I read the bottom. Is "upgrade" implying he be replaced? I would hope not. Upgrading the pitching staff which will allow Hendricks to drop to the 5 slot would be ideal. Upgrading the 5 spot alone...

    I'll take Felix over Hendricks on my team. Not real concerned what those numbers are saying.

    Exactly. It doesn't help us today to get a SP who's next start in on Tuesday. I'm quite sure they know exactly who they want and when to pull the trigger. That said, we can not go another start...

  9. Sticky: That's correct. No extension........no deal

    That's correct. No extension........no deal

    I'm very surprised that the fourth overall pick just three years ago, with a FB that sits in the mid 90's and can get near 100, is on the trading block. At 24 years old!! Maybe they know something...

    Bob Knightengale said on the radio that a deal on the table for Price could be excepted, only if they can reach an extension. If an extension is in place, an announcement is expected by this...

    Gausman has been on my "favorites" radar since he got drafted. Bosio might be able to help him reach his potential.

    :oldguy: LOL!

    Question: How can a blown save come in any other inning? If it happened in the 8th, it's a blown hold.

    I know that Kimbrel and Chapman would instantly give us the closer we...

    Closer talk: We are right at league average with 35 save opportunities. We have only converted 63% (26th ranked) of them. If we would have even converted the league average of 71%, that's an...

    Sounds awesome, Bibbs! The only thing I don't agree with is Schwarbs on the bench. If we get in the position to win and Miggy is healthy, Schwarbs absolutely must learn to play LF. Cogs starting...

    He has pitched like a 3 at times. But he's still not a 3. Hell, he's the 4 on our team right now. Unless you believe that Lester, Arrieta, or Hammel are below him. In a three game series, he...

    He is not a 3. He may periodically pitch like one, but at best, he's a 4. He'd be an even better 5. If that's where he's at, all the better for our pitching staff. Dropping our 4 to 5 is a much...

    It would be nice if Cespedes could play CF. He's played at least 600 innings there with only 1 error. But other numbers show that he doesn't get to balls that he should and is a negative in those...

    I don't dislike Cogs at all. But are you suggesting that if push came to shove in LF, we'd be better off with Cogs over Schwarbs? Cogs' numbers of .264/.355/.450/.805 against RHP is pretty good,...
