Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

That's kind of why I asked that, thinking along those lines. I do think that Eloy can improve on that walk rate though, he's not a big chase guy and if he's hitting that many homers, I'd suspect he gets pitched around quite a bit. Happ MAY even prove to be competent enough in CF, to where he can get...

Re: 2017 Draft Thread

https://twitter.com/BaseballAmerica/status/868201821877174272 BA's latest mock. Has Hiura going 15. Has us with Allen at 27 and Sam Carlson falling to us at 30. I'd be just fine with that, but I'd be very surprised if we take two high schoolers. I am fairly shocked that Beck slid all the way to #26...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

My guess at the best guys who actually get moved this deadline..... 1. Jose Quintana 2. Sonny Gray 3. Marco Estrada 4. Alex Cobb 5. Jason Vargas 6. Derek Holland 7. Jaime Garcia 8. Scott Feldman 9. Trevor Cahill 10. Jeremy Hellickson I really hope we can find a way to get Gray. At this point though,...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Gotta think you could get something done with the Rays. Besides their already good staff on the MLB roster, this is their staff at AAA: Blake Snell Brent Honeywell Jose Deleon Jacob Faria Taylor Guerrieri They gotta trade some pitching, they just gotta. I forgot what/who I was listening to or readi...

Cincy was a sweep, this was 3-1. I think west coast trips are when Joe pulls out a theme day.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-24-17

Is Acevedo for real or what? He's interesting, but he's truly a project. He's got ridiculous stuff, or did anyway. In his case, I'm shocked he's got this few K's, even if it is a SSS. I'm sure he's attempting to work on his control. I'd be interested to see a current report on him, but he seemed li...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

A lot of these elite arm, big trades requires two top level prospects to ship out, and much as I have said I like the system's depth this year moreso than past years, there are plenty of teams with more quality depth than us. Like I noted, yes, you can piece together, say, Javier Baez, Eloy Jimenez...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

I think we'll do our damnedest to get a guy early. I think Zagunis, Caratini, and Candelario are all kind of tailor-made for Oakland. The question is what's it going to take as a lead piece? If a quantity package of that group and Cease(or Clifton, if Billy likes him) can get it done, I'm sure we'd ...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Personally, I think we don't go totally into the deep end at the deadline. If only because I doubt those guys get moved. Gray is the guy I think we may go after.

Buuuuuut, I definitely think we CAN go into the deep end.
