Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

I don't get the lack of respect that you guys (and Maddon) have for Almora. Suggestions of trading him or making him a platoon player are ridiculous. Almora is leading the team in hitting and was hitting 100 points higher than Schwarber last year while Maddon "searched" for a leadoff man....

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

I am almost certain acquiring Verlander would've put us over the LT last year as well if we took on most of his prorated money for the year, his aav is $25.7 so his hit to us last year would've been $12ish million if acquired in August, a little more if in July. We can argue the LT really doesn't m...

There is no way anyone could have predicted that he would be as good as he was after the trade Pre-trade: 10-8, 3.82 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 119 ERA+ Post-trade: 5-0, 1.06 ERA, 0.64 WHIP, 376 ERA+ 2018: 9-3, 1.82 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, 205 ERA+ nobody said or thought he'd be that great, and he didn't have to be. ...

Man, I would have done that in a heartbeat. Verlander with the Tigers last year before the trade, fwiw. 28 starts, 3.82 ERA, 4.01 FIP, 4.41 FIP, 9.2 K/9, 3.8 BB/9, 1.2 HR/9, 33% GB rate.

Yes. Given who was available at the times we needed to make moves what are the trades or FA signings you’d do? I’m not arguing to date they’ve worked out to what we wished but what are the other moves. We needed 3 starters last year at this time. your questions make no horsefeathering sense. I'm no...
