Can’t even use the old “Bosio will fix him” justification Wait, why wouldn't we want Happ given the state of our rotation? I'd love to get him, personally. yup, same. after ...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Any realistic upgrades left on the reliever market now? Britton, arguably, wasn’t even a top 5 option. So yes. Conley, Yates, Pressly, Soria, Barraclough, Steckenrider, Lugo to name a few. I said realistic because most of those guys haven’t really been mentioned in too many trade rumors. In particu...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

This is why I like Wheeler so much. He can start the rest of the year, he’s throwing mid 90s on the FB and 90 on the slider. Move him to the pen come playoffs and he likely gets a velo bump and could be a huge weapon for 1-2 inning bursts if we trade for him, i have a hard time seeing wheeler not b...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

I'm just glad it appears we're very serious about adding a starter. It seemed like we were concentrating too much on relievers, based on some of the articles. Given the emphasis on bullpens in the playoffs, I’d rather devote resources to the bullpen to make it as strong as possible for October. But...

horsefeathers yeah, time for a big trade

This reads like he is talking about the team’s SP in general.


Yeah I was thinking it could apply to the rotation as a whole.

Re: Brad Hand & Adam Cimber to Cleveland for Francisco Mejía

A great win for the Padres ... an understandable move for the Indians. I think this is a huge win for the Padres. They got an elite positional prospect. Those guys don't get moved much. The Cubs traded one last year and another the year before. And they traded for one the year before that. Also Dan...

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

Toronto isn't getting past Boston or Philadelphia going forward. My guess is he gets traded to the Lakers within the week. Toronto gets picks and youngsters, starts their rebuild. Is that because Kawhi will refuse to play there? Because otherwise I like this move for Toronto. Wasn’t the knock on th...

He was already oldish when he broke out as a prospect and just suffered a season ending arm injury, but the absolute biggest reason this tarnishes his prospectness is he's lost a year of development. Wow, it's just one sentence, but you fit in three wrong statements- that's tough to do. 1- He wasn'...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-16-18

I don't agree with this at all. Any season-ending arm injury to a pitching arm is damning enough, with or without surgery, but then his performance when on the field was decidedly meh. It was only 8 starts, but he was striking out 2 guys less per 9 than last year in AA, while still throwing loads o...
