    On a lighter note, I'm always fascinate what my phone's auto correct seems to do. Paul Beaton isn't the worst its come up with.

    And Chong/Reed, no need throwing blame, just move it to its own...

    I don't interpret him as a lower level spec. Or really Grosh for that matter. I guess it depends how you interpret the language of the rumours.

    Groshans is slightly younger, but I think they were...

    He has a reputation for trying to doctor the whistle. Refs are irritated by him, even when he is right. But yes, I agree. Feels like he gets fewer calls each year.

    Patino definitely fits that description. The others I'm not so sure about. But I don't even know if Jays were in on Snell. Lindor/Carrasco trade is probably a better comparable. And Jays wouldn't...

    No kidding about FVV. Named to the Team USA 60 man squad. Not bad for an undrafted 5’11 kid.

    We'll disagree.

    But I'm curious how that prospect capital is used. Rumours of Bryant/Hendricks are still out there, but with how they approached the trade deadline last year, I do wonder if they...

    So I'll call you on that. Bust implies it would be a lost off-season if we didn't get Springer. It is clearly gross hyperbole.

    What if we got Kluber, Taillon and LeMahieu like the Yanks? Lost...

    Still has loads of pitching and defensive needs, but those seem like issues that can be solved.

    I remember the lefty/righty bats being an issue in 2015/2016 too and would love to see some balance....

    I don’t like the word “tanking” because it presumes the team is trying to lose only for a draft pick. I agree they won’t do that. But if this team has a 20-25 record with only 27 games remaining, do...

    Tommy la Stella is a guy who could fit the bill there. Could be a R/L platoon with Grichuk in the lineup. When Grich plays, Teo can DH. When La Stella plays Vlad can DH. Then of course rest days...

    I agree. No Brantley changes my post, but I also think it is helpful to remember that no player "plays everyday" anymore. Everyone gets rest days. "Bench players" can still play 80-120 games.

    I agree with location comment. He has some development to do still, it just seems way premature to me to pencil him up in as a reliever.

    His fastball is 80 grade by professional talent evaluators....

    Kolten Wong remains an interesting complimentary piece. GG at 2B, high OBP, good speed on the base paths, lefty bat.

    But SP still needs to be the priority

    Not sure you are using the phrase properly :).

    But yes, it is clear it was not accurately reported when she tweeted it was a done deal for 3 years. To her credit she admitted the mistake.

    He throws 4 pitches. 2 of them are graded very well (the fastball is the obvious highlight). Most starters rely on their top 2 pitches around 80% of the time and incorporate the 3rd/4th offerings...

    I expect we'll see shorter outings with him. Montoyo doesn't like pitchers going 3 times through the order very often. Pearson never pitched more than 5 innings last year. I imagine getting a guys...

    Super exciting news. Gotta be at least 1 trade to follow IMO. Not enough playing room on the field for Grichuk, Springer, Teoscar, Gurriel, Tellez and Vladdy. And we are even more RH heavy in the...
