Re: Brad Brach DFA'd

Not that Brach didn’t deserve to get ignominiously horsefeathers canned, he did, but I’m vaguely upset that he gets blasted into the sun before the most ignoble of terrible players, the one begging for release, figuratively and literally, Daniel DeScalso. The beauty of this roster is there are just...

Re: They kept saying "Dave Phelps, Dave Phelps"

I assume this will be the thread that makes it. The tweet in the other one said he isn't missing many bats, which I don't know if I'd agree with given his 9.35 K/9 rate (slightly above league average for relievers). 2 home runs in 17 innings, and a low GB rate doesn't seem great. I would say that h...

Phelps on the other hand is a guy I wanted a few years ago. Stuff seems to be playing well returning from TJS.


He has 5.4% swinging strike rate. I'm not even sure who he's an upgrade over.

Re: Work Jerks

Halloween is a giant parade of horsefeathers in every office but it's worse when you work for a startup, go into the office like 2 times a month and everyone that isn't in management is between 22 and 25 years old. Any adult that wears a costume should be sent to Gitmo.

Yeah but it's like a decade worth of control. Hand has all of this year and then 19, 20 and 21. Cimber has been really impressive and he's got less than a year of service time.

Just hope he doesn't sign a long term deal with LA in offseason He doesn't really fit there when they're healthy. Machado isn't a good SS and Seager is, so Machado would have to acquiesce to playing 3B full time. They'd also have to move Turner to 1B and Bellinger to their crowded OF. I guess you c...

I don't agree with this at all. Any season-ending arm injury to a pitching arm is damning enough, with or without surgery, but then his performance when on the field was decidedly meh.
