Generally, based on his age/innings pitched, what’s the time table for him to advance to MB - then TN - then IA?

Re: Happ is Back

Then Theo has to admit that letting TLS go and signing Descalso was an epic failure on his part. And signing oft injured Morrow for 2/$21M. Complete and total waste for a team ownership bitching about money. The price reflected the risk, the rest of the FA RP market sucked or was overpriced (Davis,...

Re: Trade targets 2019

Big changes are coming in the off season. Mini rebuild here we come starting with not re-upping Maddon and going a cheaper route. No way are they signing Sgt. Girardi. If their not gone by the deadline in a week - Schwarber, Russell, Al Mora & Happ flipped for young pitching & position play...

If it is Lange, what else would it cost for a rental like Castellanos? :shrugs: I can't imagine much to rent a corner bat. Maybe a couple DSL/AZLers? Zagunis or Short or Giambrone?

If Zobrist is due back, it’s gonna have to be soon. He’ll need what - 2 weeks at Iowa to get back in baseball shape? If he’s not on the roster by 9/1 - no playoff roster. so why would it have to be soon? two weeks prior to 9/1 is a month from now I didn’t mean to sound frantic, but yeah - I guess w...

Re: Trade targets 2019

The "younger/better players" are busy having surgeries that have them out for the rest of the season. Right now the WS have 6 pitchers on the IR and who knows whether Rodon and Kopech will come back to be stars after TJ surgery. I was obviously talking about the players you suggested they...

Re: Trade targets 2019

Strop, Cishek, Kintzler, Monty, Hamels (if he gets back in time) can all go if anyone wants Almora send him out and maybe Q, maybe Schwarber and at least feel out KB’s market.

He went yard again last night for #13. Only 221 PA’s, .786 OPS. Not bad for a cost controlled 22 yo.
