    Kim does not replace Ismael Cruz. Its an entirely different position. We still don't have an International Scouting Director.

    I never said it was a bad move for the Dodgers. They get an obviously skilled executive to assist them for a bit, there isn't any negative for them bringing him on. For Anthopoulos, this is a...

    Good luck with that. The Dodgers already have Farhan Zaidi who meshes much better with Friedman from an intelligence/philosophy standpoint, you think Friedman is going to push Zaidi (his guy) out in...

    Ownership changed and the payroll was reduced dramatically. He also inherited a very "veteran" team, which meant that a strip-down was obvious.

    Bautista will be a 36 year old free agent. He's not going to have teams lining up to give him a truck-load of money on top of surrendering a 1st round pick, for a guy who may only be good for one or...

    Wow, you've got it all figured out. Some team should hire you as the GM!

    Don't you think that they've thought this all through? You're not proposing anything new or original. The thought of an...

    If they are traded at the deadline, the acquiring team would not be able to offer them a qualifying offer which would be a big boost to their individual free-agent markets as they would no longer be...

    A GM will impact a 1st round pick, and maybe a 2nd round pick. Thats it. Our farm system under Anthopoulos wasn't built on 1st round picks; in fact, many of those guys (McGuire, D.J. Davis...) were...

    No, Brian Parker and company drafted/signed those prospects. Last time I checked, he's still employed here. Ismael Cruz made the international signings and he just left to go join the Dodgers.

    Can people please stop spreading this blatantly inaccurate statement?

    The farm system wasn't "restocked" twice. The large majority of the prospects who rose up after the Dickey/Marlins trades...

    Lackey has a 1st round pick attached to him. What most of you fail to realize is that Happ was one of the few legitimate pitchers on the open market who wasn't going to cost a 1st round pick to...

    Yeah, he's setting up yes men by seriously considering a guy who's interviewed for 2-3 other GM openings already. That makes sense.

    Your shtick doesn't even match reality. Current Indians...

    Wrong. Even at .500 this team's Pythagorean record suggested that we were clearly the best team in the AL East. What you saw was our record stabilize (as expected) on top of the Yankees falling...

    Why? Because Kazmir carries the fancy title of "~#3 starter"?

    2016 Steamer Projections:

    Happ: 3.80 ERA/3.95 FIP/1.9 WAR
    Kazmir: 3.77 ERA/.3.80 FIP/2.5 WAR

    You think Kazmir is nearly $70...

    Wrong.

    This team needs starting pitching depth, PERIOD. One of AA's biggest and least talked about downfalls was his constant trend of walking into seasons with ~4-5 MLB caliber starting pitchers...

    Why would this team "load up"? Bautista is 35, Encarnacion is 33 in two months, Martin is 33 in two months, and injury-prone Tulowitzki while only 31 is owed a ton of money. This team is not built...

    I'd also like to remind that AA admitted that the majority of his upper-staff voted NO on the Tulowitzki deal, and that it was he who ultimately decided to make the move anyway. Why was that?
