  1. You'll never see a more linear path to the big...

    You'll never see a more linear path to the big leagues because baseball isn't a sport built purely by athleticism. It's a specific skill sport that takes years to perfect and improve.

    Here are...

    They charged at him over anxiety.

    It's not clever, it's not okay, and it's just plain stupid.

    and it wasn't just playful jabbing. They were so bad that they got thrown out over it.

    Fun little trivia.

    What player had the most seasons with a 1.000 OPS and had 600 PA?

    The answer might surprise you actually.

    Yeah, I wasn't really speaking as if that was realistic.

    But Didi could probably be had, 1 year $12M

    I don't think this is realistic at all, I was just stating that's the kind of package it...

    And most pitchers at 31 ;)

    Are you suggesting we sign him and then trade Wong?

    I don't see that as really an upgrade anywhere. I would think Didi, on his best bet, would be about the same value as Wong.

    In 2018, Didi's...

    Sure, but Jack threw 213 innings this year. The data says to not make pitchers jump more than 40 innings a year.

    At this point, with a full off-season, and regular 5th day starts, Jack should be...

    Bauer is a pretty good comp actually

    But Bauer had 1.5 years left on his deal and has publicly stated he is going to free agency multiple times.

    Thor has 2 years left right now, next deadline,...

    Yeah, I don't think he's necessarily likely to be moved, in fact, I agree, he's probably more likely to be extended rather than traded.

    But if he is made available, he's a good fit for our needs....

    Historically, third basemen don't age well (they peak earlier than every position except catcher). BUT, Rendon is a pretty special hitter and won't be harmed in value by moving to another position. ...

    Well the other problem is nobody in baseball is really all that consistent. A handful of guys are consistent shut down guys, but those guys win Cy Youngs (deGrom, Strasburg, Scherzer, Cole,...

    I'm a fan of keeping Martinez, but ONLY using him as a starter. However, he didn't come out of the gate his year as a starter because he didn't condition himself last winter.

    How can they force...

    You tell Boras you'll sign both, and backload both deals over the next 20 years and tell Lerner to shove it, because you are keeping the NL pennant winning team together.

    :)

    I'd retain Rendon...

    It's hard to understand why they didn't top the Sox for Robert.
  16. DeJong's bat wouldn't play anywhere other than...

    DeJong's bat wouldn't play anywhere other than shortstop, and Story's bat reduces in value tremendously if you moved him.

    Both are best served as shorstops. Is all.


    DeJong probably wouldn't...
  17. Story isn't anywhere near the level of Betts or...

    Story isn't anywhere near the level of Betts or Lindor. If they would trade him (I doubt they would), he could be had for a top 50, and a top 100 prospect (value wise).

    I don't see the purpose in...

    Of course Lindor is far better. He's a top 10 player in all of baseball. But if you want Lindor, like with Betts, it's 2 of Flaherty, Carlson, and Gorman to get him. Betts maybe you don't have to...
  19. I think trading for Blackmon would be a little...

    I think trading for Blackmon would be a little dangerous. Big contract, plays in Colorado. It's always hard to measure how a Colorado player will do outside of Coors.

    I think the Rockies would...

    Sure, but this is a perennial MVP caliber player. They will expect at least 2 high potential players in return that can be superstars themselves.

    That is probably above our budget, probably by quite a bit if we have to pay Fowler to play in Colorado.

    I also think it takes a heck of a lot more than Gorman and Woodford to net Betts. They'd...
  22. They hit, they pitched, they played defense, and...

    They hit, they pitched, they played defense, and our manager was negative in value. Sequencing is all that changed the production. Which can change in any sample set.

    I agree our offense is...

    I think our rotation is fine, it's the lineup that needs help.

    I'm sure Wainwright will be invited back, and I like our depth.

    I've got down that we have about $25M to add to payroll.

    I like the idea of doing two trades

    Randy Arozarena, Malcom Nunez, and Jake Woodford for Jorge Soler. Offer Soler a 5/$73M extension

    People tend to freak out about small sample sizes in the playoffs because it's the lights are brighter.

    But no front office in baseball should be making any decisions based on a 4 game sample size...
