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

I only want Machado if he can play SS. He’s got 827 career PAs at the position with a .247 IsoSLG and 15% K rate so I’m optimistic he can. Rizzo - Baez - Machado - Bryant would be a pretty damn super teamy infield

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

I really agree on Kimbrel and the reasons to sign him. Also Harper but as a reliever/closer, he kinda falls into being an available generational talent. Harper’s a move that I really think triggers a couple awesome surprises and Kimbrel falls into that for me. I’d rather trade Russell for a SP, migh...

Re: Allen Webster up, Morrow to 60-day DL

I’m willing to feign optimism for a power arm in a reduced role with no surgeries under its belt that was once a serious SP candidate. I guess I can buy that generally speaking there are some similarities to Morrow. OTOH Morrow was a pretty badass ML SP once or twice rather than just a good prospect...

225# for Marquez? Big boy

Btw that Padres guy the Fangraphs guys call the top teenage SP prospect on the planet doesn’t seem like crazy competition for Richard Gallardo. Please pass him next year!

Going to the Jets home opener where I will shower Sam Darnold with praise and adulation no matter the outcome. The important thing is that he tries and has fun.

Gd Velazquez has some big ass hands. What an interesting frame, physical already but still projectable, wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if McLeod’s 6’2” 210 prediction ends up on the money

Re: 2019 Draft Thread

Some excellent size among top college bats this year...Wallner, Toglia, Mendoza, and Rustchman all look to have premium frames. Three of those guys are listed at 6’5”, two are switch hitters, there’s a C with a potentially elite frame, and a potential 3B in Mendoza. Impressive little group, that’s d...

With Mack on board and Goldman resigned it probably would not be wise to extend a safety. Last I remember PFF is wonky anyway.
