Re: Brad Hand to Cleveland

Cimber also going to Cleveland with Hand, Mejia the headliner going to San Diego. This feels a whole lot like the Samardzija/Hammel deal. Or like when the Nats got Doolittle and Madson in the same deal. One stop shopping to fix the bullpen. I was also thinking of the angle that they're getting a pr...

Re: The Cardinals

I do agree with the 'challenge right away or don't' sentiment. It's a bit absurd to me that they let teams delay the game to look at replays to decide whether to ask umpires to look at replays. If that team is pitching there's not a ton that can be done, although a pitch clock would help with that.

I need someone to fill the hole in my heart that Filiere left when he decided to be terrible at South Bend this year. Maybe Reynolds is the guy.

The point is not to ignore age entirely, the point is that universally bad results shouldn't be graded on an age curve. "Universal"?--- So, his 2017 Eugene numbers don't count? For me the only thing 2018 says about ademan is that as an underdeveloped 19 yr old he wasn't ready for high A b...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-15-18

His age and the lower threshold of his position gives him opportunity to rebound, but there's nothing about that we can look at and think it portends well if he only were a few months older at t his level. Well, you’re just acknowledging then ignoring Ademan’s age differential with respect to his r...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-15-18

I haven’t seen anything from Ademan that indicates that he’s a shoo-in to be a strong hitter at any level of full season ball yet. certainly capable of doing so, but taking a few walks while the bat gets knocked out of your hands in low/high A doesn’t fill me with confidence. I don't see how his pl...

Re: The Cardinals

Lots of speculation that Girardi is the top candidate for the job...but if so...why fire Matheny? They basically have the same old school, no fun, managerial style. Girardi is actually an intelligent person though. There’s no way he’s possibly as bad as Matheny. I mean, Girardi is better at saying ...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

If you can make a deal for DeGrom using Happ and Almora and basically any reasonable permutation of minor leaguers, that's realllly hard for me to turn down. Especially with Bote looking at least LaStella-caliber with the bat, you can add a bench OF too and shift more of Zobrist's innings to the OF...
