  2. I'd rather just go to free agency for an OF, and wait on Bleday, rather than trade rotation pieces & prospects for a "?".

  3. I know you ain't asking me, but I'll toss my pair of pennies your way: In a few days, I believe the Marlins will be officially signing Yiddi Cappe, the top or near-top international prospect this cycle. They have drafted aggressively and maxed out their signing bonuses every year, save 2020 where I think they stayed just beneath the overage tax. I also believe they were one of the last teams to furlough their employees, and one of the first to un-furlough them (can't remember where I heard that; Mish?). They also didn't make huge cuts to player development and scouting like a number of other t

  4. Exactly this. I’m sure at this point the FO has a pretty good idea on who the core of our farm system is, and a handful of prospects that they would be willing to deal. Whether due to being disappointed in their development, culture fit, or an under the radar guy being just as good. It’s about maximizing the return on those prospects not just for this year but also the next 2/3 years as well. This is the rays mold to a tee. The rays aren’t afraid to trade prospects at all. Heck, we have Jesus Sanchez in our system now. It’s that they evaluate their system as good as anyone, and

  5. What you have to do is pick a lane. That was the problem with how Loria ran the team. They would have a fire sale and start a rebuild, and then not even 2 years in, start adding pieces and trading prospects when the team performs slightly better than expected. You either stay the course or go big. Half assing it is not an option.

  11. While Benintendi is still young and is club controlled I feel like the Sox would be selling low on him now, his best years were a few years back and he's been questionable since then, looking like he could even be declining. So why are people still acting like his price tag would be so high? Or am I the one who is looking at this wrong?

  21. I don't think he's "bad" but I think he's had a few weak seasons yet at his age he has a chance to bounce back and still be good. Plus he's a lefty bat so it might be ok for the Marlins to take a chance on him but I just don't think he's worth giving up a lot for. I don't mind Benintendi as another option but I don't think they should look at him as being a sure thing.

  25. I'm also content with Yimi as the closer, but go find another 8th inning guy, plus some depth. That would be fine too, and it would save a few $.

  26. I believe all of us were much more excited for the deal of Contreras to happen than the Benintendi ones, but we also need to aware of the much more return it needed, I believe the team would be much more willing to part ways with top prospects for Contreras than Benintendi, you could easily find a RF you need in the FA market but for the catcher it's a different story, just hope this front office doing their best to make this happen, so it's Contreras, a closer and a RF and call it a off-season.

  27. I think Frisaro said recently that this and the failure to secure a TV deal really put the squeeze on them in the short term.

  29. Apparently the Red Sox are looking for a MLB ready SP in the deal. I would have to imagine they’ve brought up Elieser and Rogers. I wouldn’t love dealing Elieser, but I could be convinced of it. Rogers on the other hand should be off the table completely

  30. Actually it could be the opposite. Keeping the payroll low could incite more poverty and stunt a team's success for years. It may also hinder the ability to maximize the capacity for a faster transition from a market standpoint or/and competitive team. If Loria still owned the team, they would present the narrative that baseball can not thrive in Miami just like they did with Florida. Im not saying teams who don't spend are doomed or teams who do will succeed either. I just don't think we should believe we are under the narrative that we can't spend. It's a business altogether and e

  32. Y'all gotta keep in mind the "time value" of money. Folks don't realize it, but the Bobby Bonilla deal was actually great for the Mets. Yeah, they're paying him a million dollars until the heat death of the universe, but $1M on a modern payroll is less than 2 MLB minimum salaries. Back in 1990-whatever, a $1M salary would have been a big deal, much less the $8M or so he was scheduled to make. Inflation and the steadily raising costs per win make long-term deferrals like that kinda dandy for teams. I mean, paying Hendricks $1.5M in 2035 isn't going to be very stressful for the White Sox. B

  42. (preface: this is a fine signing, Leon is a good catcher that pitchers like to throw to, and it's a minor league deal anyway) Sandy Leon is a career .216 hitter and hasn't hit over .192 since 2017. If he enters the season as part of the major league roster and the National League still has the DH in 2021, I bet you that Don Mattingly puts Leon as the DH at least once.
