Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-30-19

Dixon homered again and now has a 921 OPS with an excellent BBK. I know his MLB career has been awful but i kind of separate this year into a class of it's own and I wouldnt be surprised if he carried a substantially higher ISO upon a promotion. I think hes earned a look. Garcia has options and Mach...

Re: RE: Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-30-19

Patterson is having a hell of a night 39 pitches, 35 for strikes, 9 Ks and 1 walk. That's insane. I have honestly never seen that at any level 99% sure it’s box score magic. Opposing starter supposedly threw 36 pitches in 5 innings with 2 walks, 4 hits, and 5 Ks. Ah I probably should've checked that

Re: Trade targets 2019

Ok so either nobody liked my trade for Gonzales idea or maybe they figured hed be too expensive. What about if we trade for Castellanos and Daniel Norris? https://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=all&stats=pit&lg=all&qual=0&type=8&season=2019&month=0&season1=2019&in...

Re: Trade targets 2019

What kind of a package would it take to get Marco Gonzales from Seattle?

Hes pretty comparable to modern Q and hes got another year of arb left. Thinking maybe we swing a deal for him and would be able to move Q. That would save us 9m for next year and give us enough to add the bat we need right now.

Re: Minor League Musings

Anyone know anything about Kevin Ginkel? This is a dude in the DBacks system and hes been a guy who generally posts 35ish K-BB%. Hes 25 and this year hes pitched 32 innings between AA/AAA and has 60 Ks to just 11 walks. Why haven't they brought him up yet? He has to be in their immediate plans right...

Cubs, Orioles Have Discussed Jonathan Villar Hate it. Makes 5m, so hed cost us like 2 this year and has another year of arb, hes been a bad hitter for 3 years running, and would just add to the trash heap at 2B without solving horsefeathers. It's like they are hellbent on hitting the budget ceiling...

This might not go over well. I may not have taken the most scientific approach to this or taken all painstaking efforts to back up my hypothesis. You're free to rip this apart.

Re: Cubs go Dutch with Giants, acquire Holland

In all seriousness, how many injuries do they need to see before the FO realizes that it's a very poor proposition to let these guys play through them? I wonder if some of it is Joe not wanting to dig into the milb depth.

Re: Cubs go Dutch with Giants, acquire Holland

Brach should be DFA in favor of Wick. See if Wick can seize the spot. If he falters they can pull back the designation but I dont think my eyes can handle watching Brach's ugly ass delivery anymore and Wick offers more promise IMO.

Re: RE: Re: Happ is Back

Sounds like Tim Collins going back down, which...whatever. Well, now Collins has been DFA'd because of the Derek Holland pickup. yeah but it sounds like Holland is only replacing him on the 40 man for now...though I guess they'd have to give him a 25 man spot pretty soon Descalso has to go.
