Re: 2017 AFL

Is this Vosler guy a thing? He seems to be getting hits every day. He's a potential role player for us, but probably not a whole lot more. Bote is way more interesting (as interesting as a backup infielder will get). He's higher up on the defensive food chain, better bat-to-ball skills. Both will w...

Nah. They're sort of monstrous but not enough to be monsters.

Re: John Mallee

I'm going to make one more post to try clarify where I'm coming from. I realize there is bias in my stance, because I'm more likely to realize/remember when a hitter guessing doesn't work, which is part of the reason why I brought it up to see if anyone felt the same. I'm not against guessing. It's...

Re: Offseason for the Offense

I think an Almora/Happ platoon at the top of the order would give plenty of production in that spot. Or Zobrist if he goes back to more normal levels of production after an offseason of rest for his wrist. I'm not concerned about stolen bases at all given the new runs environment. Just need people t...

Re: Most likely to be traded?

Depends too much on what the team they want to trade with needs back / likes the most. I think that Happ and Schwarber are the most likely to be headed out, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Almora or even Javy be traded.

Re: John Mallee

Anyway, I don't mind Mallee keeping his job at all. I think there's been plenty of successes to justify it. If they had wanted to replace him with someone else, I would have been fine with that, too. As mentioned by others here and in the Bosio thread, I have plenty of confidence in our front office...

Re: Chris Bosio Fired

I would have felt much worse about this after last year. But we finished 24th in BB% as a pitching staff. Part of that is the guys on the staff. But it also didn't feel like anyone took a step forward this year and several guys took a step back. Maybe it was time for a new voice. I'd be happy if Bos...

So. All you smart people. How in the hell is TheoCo going to shore up our junk pitching staff Sign one starting pitcher and trade for another. Go all in on trying to sell Otani on the Cubs (I know it is a long shot). Alzolay is not far away from being a contributor in the rotation. They have a few ...

Offseason for the Offense

First things first - everyone is under control except for Jay and the backup catchers. Contreras, Rizzo, Baez, Zobrist, Russell, Bryant, Schwarber, Happ, La Stella, Almora and Heyward stand to be back unless someone is moved in a trade. Catcher: I think they'll probably try to sign Rivera to a short...

Re: John Mallee

Bryant's BB/K has gone from 11.8/30.6 his rookie year to 14.3/19.2 this year. Javy is a bit better in both categories since Mallee has been here. Willson was far from a sure thing when he was promoted and has thrived. If anything, go hire Terry Pendleton as assistant hitting coach and assign him pur...
