Re: Offseason Transactions

In a stunning swap of big contracts, the Dodgers have traded first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, left-hander Scott Kazmir, right-hander Brandon McCarthy and infielder Charlie Culberson to the Braves in exchange for outfielder Matt Kemp.


Braves might be ready to sell some pitching?

Re: Shohei Ohtani Signs with the Angels

I wonder if part of the Angels pitch/reason he picked them was them being on the forefront of the PRP shot treatment since I think Richards was the first MLB pitcher to get that. Unless this is different I’m very sure multiple ML pitchers have done it. CJ Nitkowski was writing about his treatments ...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Have any of these super pay trades ever worked? ARod/Stanton/ been benificial, in the long run to the health of a team? We have the best defense right fielder in the NL who is working toward being a better hitter. I don't want that Boras super contract on our heads for 5 years when Rizzo and Bryant...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Theo won't blink an eye on 40 per on Harper, nor should he. The opt outs involved will allow for him to get even more cash too. Theo ain't even truly trying to hide this either. The key is keeping from hitting 245 mill next year and we'll be able to do that. If we miss on him though, who DO we spen...

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

Hard pass on Salazar for Happ. I like Salazar’s arm despite all the injuries but not nearly enough to give up one of the MLers. These pre-injured (as always this means major arm surgeries) pitchers are all fun and games on low commit deals for relatively low responsibility gigs like locking down the...

Re: Marcell Ozuna Traded to the Cardinals

I'll just stick this here....Cards traded Piscotty to the A's, which puts him closer to his mom, who was diagnosed with ALS earlier this year. I have a feeling that Piscotty bounces back and that he'll produce well enough to make people wonder why the Cardinals bothered with this Piscotty/Ozuna swa...

Re: Christian Yelich

I am mildly curious, based off the Ozuna trade, what they would be targeting with a Yelich deal. Yelich would make the entire starting outfield plus the starting 2B for the Marlins. He’s their most valuable trade chip so I could see the conversation starting with Almora + Happ with a full season ba...

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

Tomorrow is the rule V. Anyone interesting? We’ve talked about Burdi, an easy injury stash with an arm. RHP Jose Almonte from the D’Backs and LHP Jordan Guerrero from the White Sox seem interesting but not sure this is the roster for them. Twins RH Jake Reed might have a shot as a sinkerballer.

Re: Bullpen Options

It really might just be easiest to trade for Britton and some other O’s arm. I know the hope is Gausman but I imagine they’d like to hold onto their healthiest high ceiling SP.

Actually the easiest route is signing Reed.

Jeebus, all the pre-injured pitchers this offseason. I get it since none of these guys are breaking the bank and depth is an issue, but Salazar seems like he might be expensive. The Indians should be cool and hand over Triston McKenzie.

Re: The Mock Off Season Thread

There are two guys in Stroman and Archer on the cusp of hitting the trade market at some point between this past November and the 2018 summer trade deadline. They’re both better than Fulmer even before his elbow went under the knife. Given that the team has a top tier offense and three playoff calib...

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

I’m all for Schwarber-Bryant-Rizzo at the top of the lineup next year. Yup and Almora at leadoff vs LHP. Wouldn’t mind pitcher batting 8th in Schwarber leadoff games either and Russell or Zobrist hitting 9th. Pass, Schwarber’s going to mash and if anyone it’s Contreras or Bryant vs LHs. JMHT I thin...

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

Archer’s not my favorite - that would be Stroman - but he’s fine. Fastball velocity was in line with his career and better than 2016, he drew whiffs with the pitch at a higher rate than in 2016, his underused changeup has drawn whiff rates in the low teens as well as ground balls and pop ups...all t...

Re: 2017 Post-Season Prospect Rankings (BA, Fangraphs, BP)

That is one brutal 11-20 following a soft 1-10. I’m just fingers crossed on one or more of Lange and Albertos as SPs and one of these 2015-201? IFA bats show up sometime next decade. Thank goodness gracious the Cubs have Kris Bryant.
