Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

I've been on the Bote bandwagon since the beginning. People who follow the minors really closely noticed him and we talked about him last year. Check the minor league threads. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/f4/7a/f0/f47af04fe2cad0110a6f71fdffcc88c0.gif I don't expect you (or anyone really) to go ba...

it's kind of worrying that the only remedy we've heard suggested so far is for him to not play baseball. i'd almost feel better if they just said he's going to have surgery in the offseason.

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

i want harper and everything, but i think the rotation has to be the priority. i'm not cool with starting 2019 with the current rotation at all.

Re: How much is 1 WAR worth?

We knew that this could happen, we were just in a little bit of euphoric denial. Pitchers are weird and Epstein especially does not really understand them, especially in comparison to the ridiculous track record this front office has in developing position players. It's just hard not to say "m...
