    I don't mind it. By the money, it's more like a backup, and with his versatility, that works for me. Also sends me a signal that they want a stop gap for one year and then go after Mack next year...

    I never said developed average talent into great, but he played a huge part in good talent putting it all together. There's been plenty of talented receivers to come into the league, not all of them...

    I'm saying Manning played a very large role in the development of his "weapons". Considering what happened in Denver, that can't really be denied. I'm not saying he could put up massive numbers...

    That and he still probably puts up some pretty amazing numbers.

    There's also all of zero actual evidence to back up those claims. If we assume that Manning's numbers were boosted by his supporting cast, then shouldn't we also assume they would falter without it?...

    Yeah, you obviously want him to get the most PA, but at the same time, his power might be wasted in the #1 spot. It's not like he'd be batting fifth, what would batting second over a full season...

    Looking over the options the other night, are there really any better ones than Ibanez? Hart would've been, but there isn't much out there, and the one perfect fit comes attached with a draft pick,...

    Poll: I'm not sure they would still deal him with...

    I'm not sure they would still deal him with Beltran going to the Yanks, but nothing would surprise me with Dayton Moore. Butler didn't hit many jacks next year, he might feel he's an overpaid DH and...

    As I've been saying, my main point was that as his BABIP normalized, so did he, to a still respectable level, and while it's a far cry from an accurate sample, it's better than lumping it in with his...

    Poll: Considering who their GM is, I wonder if Dipoto...

    Considering who their GM is, I wonder if Dipoto could steal Billy Butler from the Royals. They seem to want to deal him for some reason, and he'd be one hell of a pickup. Expensive enough, but...

    It doesn't make a lot of sense, but it's no less arbitrary than splitting it by the first two and then next four months, which IMO makes even less sense. Basically I was hoping to illustrate that he...

    You get those numbers by splitting the year into the first two months and the last four. You split it down the middle and how have him putting up a wRC+ of 164 with a .327 BABIP in the first half...
  13. I guess that's where we got mixed up, I wasn't...

    I guess that's where we got mixed up, I wasn't talking about BABIP. Rather I was referring to you saying 2011 and 2013 were who he is, and I questioned that, given how very different those years...
  14. His BABIP was absolutely insane the first two...

    His BABIP was absolutely insane the first two months, where he dominated, and then it came down to below his career average for two months, and he was still quite good, although obviously not as good...
  15. I'm not necessarily disagreeing, but it's...

    I'm not necessarily disagreeing, but it's statements like this that make me suspect people don't look in depth into his numbers one bit. Yeah, his OBP is almost identical, but he got there in...
  16. I'm guessing even under ideal conditions he...

    I'm guessing even under ideal conditions he would've still been a bad third basemen, but yes, that experiment was doomed to fail. You're not going to learn a new position in spring training,...

    I always liked Trumbo, despite his shortcomings, so a bit sad to see him go, but wow, this is a steal. Skaggs and Santiago both have question marks, but they also have huge potential. Not sure if...

    Sounds to me like it's merely a formality and that one of the spects involved(probably from the ChiSox) isn't all that great. Doubt it'd be announced as basically done if there was any risk of that...

    Perhaps not the ks(not sure why I included that), but basically based on the idea that his low BA in 2013 was just a down year and not the norm. No reason to think he can't hit around .260 and have...

    I think there's a decent chance Trumbo cuts back on he strike outs and gets his BA to a average level on AZ. If he does that, with his walk rate having come up, he could be a pretty good player for...

    I'm not so sure he will. His production's been pretty good, but not great, and hasn't even been that good in a couple years. If he were to come here, fit in, and like it enough, it's conceivable...

    I wouldn't mind chasing him for a third. Bring him in, then lock him up, could be worth our while.

    The org. had faith in him by not going after a big name LT and moving him to RT, deciding to go after Cherilus instead. Glad to see he's rewarding that faith.

    Pretty much. And that video cuts off the rest of the clip, where right after Manning jokes around about realizing he's mic'd up, and they both talk about how right after the shouting match, it was...

    I want Patton if the Vikes don't scoop him here. IMO he's a huge steal at this point and could be a pretty productive player.
