    It ain't spin Jorge, it's fact. Numbers don't lie.

    How many "great" seasons on Bauer resume' ? I'll take my chances with Sevy and German. Would I love rotation help, no question, just not Bauer and his exorbitant price tag for average career performance. He is just barely a .500 career pitcher.

    I agree. I think he slots perfectly as the 4 and if they are lucky, the 3.

    I would say a career era of 3.90 with over 1100 innings pitched and having pitched over 200 innings twice makes him better than average . And better than germanís one good year with only 143 innings pitched . And numbers donít lie but they can be misleading .
    Just look at this article .
    About 2 paragraphs down it explains why his numbers from 2019 should not make someone think he is a sure thing in the rotation for 2021. In fact it even goes further and states that it may not be a good idea to have German pitch the second game in a playoff series .

    Agree. I also think Garcia, after his baptism by fire in playoffs, could impress. Still wonder about his durability over the longer haul.

    Actually Jorge Bauer pitched 200+ innings once. In fairness shouldn't you be comparing Bauer to Sevy rather than the rook? In my comparison German was gravy, Sevy the potato.

    You are the one comparing Bauer to the rook since you said or atleast implied that the rook and sevy combined would be better than Bauer . And did you read the article I posted the link to ? It explains why germanís era and wins numbers in 2019 are misleading and why as of right now and going into the 2021 season he shouldnít be considered better than a #4 starter at best .

    Yes I did read the article. I disagree. It's the authors opinion, as I've told you many times....opinions are like azzholes we all have one. He chose to interpret certain stats in a very specific manner. He did mention it could have been fatigue that effected his latter season performance.

    I would be ok with German as the #4, although I think he is better.

    I suggested in a very simplistic, reductionist manner, using WAR alone, the combined value of Sevy and German was far greater than Bauer AND much cheaper without all the baggage.

    The writer used more than just one stat to back up his opinion plus charts and graphs showing his pitching locations . And yes he did say fatigue could have been a factor for his struggles that season but he also said that it will be a factor for this coming season as well and is yet another reason why he shouldnít be expected to be better than a #4 starter going into 2021 . Meanwhile you are basing your opinion one just one stat alone . That is hardly enough to assume he will a big factor in the upcoming season . Let alone to believe he will be better than Bauer this coming season

    It appears Luis Castillo from the Reds is made available by the Reds in a trade. I rather go after him and have an actual #2 starter (he won't hit FA until 2024 and is arbitration eligible next year), dude is a stud at 28 years old.

    I don't know what kind of package would land him but if I'm Cashman I would look hard at him. Especially with the logjam of bats we have in the outfield and some prospects with no real shot at the 2021 rotation and with a big ? involving having a minors season in this pandemic.

    Now that is a trade I could support and would be fine with . With him he could atleast be an innings eater behind cole .

    Funny.

    The guy who says what he says about the NL and AL, wants to sign a guy who has had limited success in the NL(mostly in the weak central division), and thinks he is exactly what the Yankees need.


    A guy who our current staff ace and one of the best pitchers in baseball has reported issues with.

    Such an odd argument. It basically goes against everything else he fights about.

    Not surprised given said poster though.

    I agree doc. Half a season from Sevy and German(especially at their salaries) is a much better and probably more successful scenario, compared to Bauer.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    This is the exact type of guy to pursue. Great, young, and cheap. They should be willing to give up a lot for Castillo.

    I donít know if he is worth a lot but he is worth taking a serious look at and taking a run for thatís for sure . I certainly would try to trade for him
