Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

These trades this season have been odd Before the season if we proposed a deal to get Quintana, we thought it would have to be Schwarber+, but if somebody suggested Eloy and Cease+, there was no way anybody would have proposed somebody in the Rice and Flete realm to fill out the deal. Then you look ...

Re: RE: Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Mike Moustakas is having the strangest few years.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

It's obviously a longshot but I also feel the possibility is there to acquire JV for the next year and a half and pay 10m or so after 2018 to flip him and clear more room for FA. Just a thought.

Re: RE: 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: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-23-17

I'm kind of really thrilled with taking a pitcher in the 11th round who barely started in college (low mileage) and having him run a 2.5 FIP as a starter in his first 1/3 of a full season. 4 pitches he can command - we need more guys like that right now, IMO.

Do you really want our catcher pissing off umpires?

No

I don't want professional umpires to be horsefeathering petty

Re: RE: Re: The Cardinals

Somebody tell me why this Tyler O'Neill cat isn't good so I can crush Cards fans hopes and dreams? Too much swing and miss? Not enough OBP? Tons of swing and miss but then again, Tommy Pham has a 140 wRC+ this year after spending parts of 11 seasons in the minors. So you know this guy is the next J...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

If the Cubs still liked Phelps and have been keeping an eye on Wilson, I think they see at least a little need but guys are surely rounding into excellent form lately.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-19-17

Renato Nunez hit an eventual GW HR off Maples. Dillon did strike out 2 in the inning but he threw 25 pitches.

Hudson just gave up his first hit in the 6th inning. SB made an error but he had finished 5 hitless in 50 pitches. 10 GO.
