    Not yet this season - would not rule it out.

    Barring a miracle July where they somehow pull within a few games of 1st place, they should sell and sell aggressively at the deadline.

    Worst case scenario remains the team winning just enough to not sell, and then predictable collapsing under the weight of injuries and poor performances in August.
    I agree.

    I will still get enjoyment out of watching improvement from the youngins and the future of this team.

    Historically the difference between the #12 pick and the #18 pick is probably along the lines of an average of 0.2 WAR per season.

    That strike out pitch was filthy. Good start Raffy, keep pounding the zone.

    He just can't find a way to limit the damage. It's a zero spot or a huge inning.

    Serious World Series contenders don't have Rafael Montero starting for them. Only badly hobbled teams do that.

    Sell.

    Don't worry. He's got this.

    Agreed. Too much uncertainty in our pitching (starters, BP, innings limits, injuries).

    Thor got to my head. He has marketed himself well with his Viking outfits and personality. but never looked at Harvey as Dark Knight.

    These days it appears it's all about marketing yourself.

    Montero really limited the damage so kudos to him for that. I would like to see more of him in the rotation still.
