Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Which leads to the conclusion that, if Gordon is his "source," he needs to find a better source.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

https://twitter.com/sean_sears6/status/888821257831149569 Mentions Gausman as a target in the next tweet in the thread. Edit: I have no idea if this sears guy had any credibility or not but I saw it on the internet so it's basically gospel I've said this before on here but he's a fraud IMO. Many th...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

If we added Verlander, barring any injuries, Hendricks/Arrieta piggyback Game 4? That might allow Kyle to get it up to 87 or so.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Is this what we're doing, though? Using our $ to get a guy, since we don't have the prospects? I don't know what I want or what to expect. But I kinda want Theo to just go nuts and make a couple more trades. I'm guessing the Tigers would want to pay at least some of it to acquire a couple prospects...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Verlander reminds me of David Ortiz at the end of his career, when there where multiple times each year, for like three straight years (except for -- somehow -- in his final year), when I thought he was done, and he kept coming back stronger than ever. He looked really nasty in this game (better th...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Also, his wRC+ was 122 in 2015 and it is 122 this year. So, basically, he's made all of these huge changes and he's no better or worse, he's just doing things completely differently.

Re: 2017 HR Derby {Discussion & Transaction Thread}

One of the standings appears to be off. Andy was up 2 on Duke last week, Duke picked up 3 HRs and now he's up 5. Not sure if you switched the names up one of the two weeks since the totals add up (Andy's score from last week plus Duke's gain from this week equals Duke's score for this week and vice...

I think they are close to driving Brisbee insane. He tweeted this out after their marathon loss on Friday night. He hosts this show, btw.

Re: #NotAllPitchers

I know I've said it before but with the injury he has/had he needs to have a surgery to really fix it. He can pitch through it and manage it but the fix requires a surgery. My friend in the NBA had the same injury 2 years ago and dealt/deals with the same doctors Kershaw has and they said there's n...

That's a weird thing to me, unless they really don't think Caratini is a suitable backup. But why upgrade a position for maybe half a win? And that half a win only exists if you believe th...
