Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

We're not trading Contreras. His pre-arb years and even early arb years are one of the reasons we may be able to fit Bryce into our payroll. That roster isn't blowing up the LT* as Realmuto only has one less year pre-FA year* *Not sure if true Before editing, you asked where your roster would be pa...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

It’s going to cost something(s) real to move Chatwood. Hopefully Kintzler doesn’t pick up his option, Duensing should be too hard to move but still will cost something. I just think all these moves don’t make sense to marginally upgrade at best with Realmuto over Contreras and Stroman in the rotati...

Re: The way too early, but I'm bored, Off-season Options Thread

... Trade Contreras for Stroman, maybe add Giles and get some cash ... You continue to be obsessed with Stroman. It's possible that he's not as good as he was projected to be. Eh, I think he can be his 2017 self+ (3.6 fWAR, 5+ rWAR, 200+ innings) for a 2-3 year run with some tweaking. Guy gets 10+%...

Daniel Norris came back really strong opening with 4 perfect with 7 Ks against the Yankees. Then he left with a lower body injury.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-31-18

I could probably BS a sunshiney Carrera report and be in ballpark...pitches 86-91, mostly 86-89, has probably shown a 92-93 to someone at some point but also maybe hasn’t, 1-7 curve he can throw for strikes or bury in the 72-81 range, feel for a changeup in the low-mid 80’s, yet to incorporate a sig...

6 shutout with 7 Ks for Carrera allowing 3 hits He’s at a very solid 67.1 IP / 48 H / 4 HRs / 58 Ks this year. Also features a 2.54 ERA, picked off 3 guys, allowed only 16 BBs, one unearned run, and a .293 SLG (.095 IsoSLG) with a SPs workload. He’s given up 10 hits in his last 24 IP with 20 Ks, a H...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-31-18

Carrera pulled off some badass pitcher voodoo in the first. Walked the leadoff man, nicked the sleeve of the two hitter, but then strikes out the hot hitting #2 overall pick Joey Bart and induces a double play. Most impressive might be Carrera's willingness to pitch Bart inside

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

I love that they're trying to Arrieta one of Webster or Hultzen right now. What was Webster's deal? I remember him as a top prospect for Dodgers who was rumored in big trades (which also included Eovaldi, IIRC) years back. Injuries or ineffectiveness? I think they’re more trying to Morrow them. Don...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-26-18

Pretty solid breakdown, but there's a few things I don't see happening. Short is DEFINITELY interesting obviously, but I'm pretty hesitant to jump on him because of his K rate right now. I hope we see him or Giambrone in the AFL. I'm past EJM. I think he was massively overhyped and he's done little...
