Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Few things here that cross my mind.....1) Is this any different than an ABTY report? SportsMockery? Are they even remotely credible? 2) Why would Baltimore deal him to us and run the risk of being even more of a laughingstock, unless the price we'd pay is much higher? 3) I'd love to add him and I'd ...

Re: To the Victor go the spoils

I've watched this more than any other highlight of last year's playoffs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1jwY8XFieI Buck's call there is great. And I still watch so many highlights from last year, its not funny. And on a tangent of last years highlights, if I NEVER have to hear Pat Hughes horsefea...

Re: To the Victor go the spoils

I'll always have a soft spot for Miggy. He did a hell of a lot of good here. You could see this happening, lots of frustrations about this season.....They'd already had to talk to him after his WS comments. Theo wasn't going to be horsefeathers with again. I like Caratini a bunch. I'm super interest...

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Gray AND Doolittle, with Eloy involved, would make sense in lots of ways. Even though they're aren't many deals with multiple major pieces involved, going to the buyer.....Billy was on the opposite side of a deal like this with us very recently. We took one elite prospect in return for two starting ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-26-17

I don't think I've seen anything remotely negative about his glove, its just whether he'll get to enough balls, if he fills out even more. With his arm, I'd say 3B would be his spot, if he can't get to enough at SS.
