Re: FA Bullpen Options

Sign everybody. Give me Reed, Shaw, Nicasio, Kintzler, Swarzak, Mcgee and Morrow. Trade for Colome and Hand.

Re: Christian Yelich

Id take it and eat most of Chen's contract to get it done. But thats a baaaaaad contract we're taking, so at that point its Happ or Almora pretty much straight up or Id just go sign Cain. Does Miami have anything of value in the bullpen that we could pluck while we're at it? They have a guy named Be...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

I just heard on MLB Network that Javy was talking about facing Kershaw tonight and said "Good luck to him."

And with that, I withdraw my consent to trade him. We need this man on this team.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

I still think Baez is a serious candidate for a trade this winter. I wouldnt be surprised. He has a nice mix of being extremely valuable in a trade while also not being absolutely vital to our roster. I hope we keep him, he's just awesome in every way, but if we can use him as a piece to get a high...

Re: Jim Hendry rides again

Yeah i might be aiming too high. I was thinking you could get a discount for taking on that contract, but actually zId rather wait and give Harper our own dumb contract. Are there any realistic pieces we could pluck? Yelich's contract isnso good i doubt theyd move him in a "cost saving" mo...

So apparently they wanna drop their payroll significantly. Wonder what we could do to get a Stanton/Yelich package done?

Re: Discuss NLDS vs. Dusty Baker's Nationals

There are way too many examples of Dusty horsefeathering up this series to actually name them all. Joe wasn't perfect either, but im almost certain that if these two teams had traded managers prior to the series, they would have also traded outcomes.

He's done a lot to innovate both the high 5 and the out in 5.

i guess scherzer was supposed to throw a bullpen today but isn't anymore i'm not exactly sure on that...heard it in passing. pretty sure he's out for the series but they dont wanna tell us yet. I was kinda worried when all of the Nationals missed their regularly scheduled season ending injuries. Al...

Re: How many teams in each league should make the playoffs?

10 is great. I like 10 teams making it. Everything else i disagree with. I want 2 leagues without divisions to play a 154 game season and the best 5 records in each league make the playoffs, with teams 4 and 5 being the wildcard teams. The wildcards play a 3 game series. Division series, Championshi...

Re: Discuss NLDS vs. Dusty Baker's Nationals

This series scares me. Please, make the NLDS a 7 game series soon. We're better than the Nats, but that doesnt really matter. That pitching can shut you down for 27 innings easily. So can ours, but they for sure have an advantage in that area. I predict a lot of close games in the late innings and I...

Re: Why Was z Montgomery Taken out So Soon?

Didn't you see how hard that home run was hit? They cut him instantly to teach the rest of the pitchers how much that horsefeathers will be tolerated. It just took a few batters for him to get the message.
