    Yes, Marquez. Sorry. Who is Abbot? Do you mean Abbott? :)

    Also, thanks for the explanation. Makes sense. Nice to see Abbott get some love, however.

    I am not sure about that. But they are both better prospects then Abbott. And Abbott was ranked ahead of Marquis and in the top 60. He might be ready sooner than Marquis, which would be nice. But I...

    But Bote's splits flipped from one year to the other. Taken as a whole, he is pretty split neutral. That said, I just do not view Bote as someone who it should be assumed will drop because that is...

    I didn't say they do it in a Q trade. They would obviously have to trade some minor league talent. However, I do agree they can see how it goes until the break. Hell, in 18' 2/5th of the rotation was...

    Well, if the goal is to get under they may need to deal Q now. If they go 80 games into the season they only get a $5M break. Might not be enough to go under. And, on top of that it could look very...

    I would agree they will not win the division with Mills and Chatwood in the back of the rotation. I would disagree with the idea of not competing. I think it is a low 80 wins team with...

    See, this is where I do not agree with you. You seem to think the team will still have this great year, even dealing Q and filling his spot with an in house option. First, I do not expect a great...

    Guess I didn't know that was a thing. The idea that players fall off going from 300AB to 500AB is a new one on me. Not saying it isn't true. Just never heard that. However, if it is true it could be...

    I hope they are under before the season starts. Not wait until the deadline. I think this team will be in the race at the deadline. I do not see dumping salary at that time.

    OK, fair points. However, I don't agree. For one, Bote was a plus offensive player last year. So him alone, at 2nd all year would be an upgrade. Happ, over his career is a plus offensive player. For...

    Not going to be happy to pay $55 for 1 month, but at least you don't have to sign a yearly contract. I really do not want to switch, so I hope this gets done by OD.

    What happened to Bote? Honestly, he had a pretty decent year last year. And that was him not doing particularly well against left handed pitching, which should be a strength.

    I think 2nd will be much improved this year. I like Kipnis much better than DD or Garcia. I also feel Bote will be a decent choice, and then there is Nico. IMO, 2nd base will end up league average or...

    I feel statements on effort are very hard to defend one way of the other. For me, Maddon did a great job. You cannot take anything away from him. But the FO wants change so they let Joe go. Maybe a...
