Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

When it comes to trading for a controllable TOR pitcher, I'm still at the point where I won't believe it until I see it. Someone like Estrada could be had without including Eloy or Happ and would likely be as good as any pitcher who gets dealt at the deadline at preventing runs for the remainder of...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

I like Happ quite a bit and think he's a guy who can potentially give Zobristian production(in slightly different proportions) and positional flexibility, but that's a lot to put on him when he didn't really hit in AA and he's got 40 games above that level. We haven't seen how he's going to react to...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

The Brewers are not going to empty their system for a SP, and if Carson Kelly is the selling point for a TOR starter, then the Cubs have no shortage of guys to counter with. The Red Sox have pieces but Devers also is like a week from being their starting 3B. If the starter is in the AL East anyway(a...

Re: 2017 Draft Thread

Odorizzi went #32 and from a quick search was #32 on BA's board that year. He is the caliber of player you're very likely to get at the end of the 1st round, having someone be reminiscent of him is not a disappointment.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

If Arrieta doesn't look much better in the next month, then I think they're going to be pretty motivated to add a starter of significance. It's a lot easier to play the efficiency game and only poke around the market when you have 3 starters having good to great seasons. Right now half their playoff...

Mariotti's twitter feed is the saddest thing ever. He posts links to his podcast everyday and practically all of them have no likes, retweets, or replies.

As far as the main thrust of the thread goes, the biggest thing for me is that the absolute rule is prospects fail.

Needs a little updating.


Looks like a typo/bug, even Farnsworth had his power at 55/60 before last year, and Longenhagen has his game power at 55/70 as of March.
