    He may never hit more than 53 HRs again (I believe he will), or have a .290/155-160 wRC+ season (I believe he will). He may never be Pujols/Goldschmidt or even Freeman-esque (I believe he'll be close...

    I actually don't get why rotation is at the top of his list, even if Wheeler is a goner.

    Great point. Projections are mostly based on data with, IMO, little emphasis on makeup. Pete works hard at his craft, studies a ton of film, makes adjustments and adjustments to adjustments. I think...

    Nothing's certain. But this is a move I'd support. What type of years/$ would you think would get it done?

    Good points. All of which would likely be factored into any discussion. He's broken a HR record for rookies, won over a cynical fan base and generally exceeded expectations. But you're right, he's...

    Convincing argument! It's basically a bet on future performance and I think he's going to get better. Not necessarily more HRs better, but better overall.

    Congratulations to Pete Alonso, who brought joy, respect, talent and swagger to the ballpark every day. A lot of things broke bad for Brodie in 2019, but starting the season with Pete was brilliant....

    Brodie's approach to Diaz and the closer situation is the most important and complicated challenge he faces this off season. He wants/needs him to succeed but he'd be a fool to go all-in on him. I...

    So many of them underperformed. I agree, there should be improvement. I also agree that Lugo has the stuff to close. The issue with Lugo is his availability in back to back games, let alone 3 days in...

    Sorry it's behind a pay wall, but this was the first article about the Beltran hire that made me feel good about his vision and approach. His first news conference was a dud for me, but this...

    The sad truth is you're right about Dom. He's not a competent corner and, beyond coming off the bench and the occasional spot start, there's not a place for him on this square peg/round hole-ridden...

    JD and Conforto (and, for that matter, Lowrie, Cano, Nimmo, et. al) can play first about as well as Dom plays left field.

    Smith is still a bargain and fills a lot of roles on the bench. To find that caliber of LH PH, defensive sub, and on rare occasions emergency corner OF we'd be paying a lot more than what Dom makes....

    I know there isn't a lot of opportunity on this roster for Dom, but I don't think we'd get equal value back for him right now. He is a solid LH hitter who can spell Alonso now and then, a very good...

    Two of the top 4 starting staffs in baseball IMO are going to the WS. Dodgers came close and Mets didn't crack the post season. I know we need a rebuilt BP and a CF but Brody needs to keep most of...

    If Nimmo proves he is healthy we have to keep him. He wouldn't bring in top value coming off this season.

    I'm also a big advocate of keeping Dom Smith. No way we get fair value for him based on...

    He's pitching an impressive game. Clearly doesn't have his best stuff. Overcame Frazier's error and now this Houdini escape in the fifth. Hopefully he gives us one more scoreless. Looks like a 2IP...

    Two missed opportunities with men on 3rd and less than two out first by Nimmo and now McNeil of all people. Shouldn't be this close.
