  1. That's probably true. Brinson has more upside. Harrison though, if they just dumb it down for him, keep it simple and bat him in the 8th spot he could cause havoc on the bases. This is the danger when you start labeling prospects as having "5 tools". Just because a player shows signs of all those traits doesn't mean they are necessarily good at any of them. Fundamentally, anything you're better at in life should be focused on first, then the rest could fall into place. Maybe developmentally, this was misunderstood because of the "5 tool" label. They need to get a fair chance. IDK if anyone else noticed, but last year I could see they really wanted to be apart of something special. Mattingly IMO handled Brinson poorly last year. Really hurt what improvement he did make.

  2. If Brinson or Harrison could just break out, we could have an opportunistic lineup consisting on speed at the top and back of the lineup. They both field there position at a high level. Management should have developed them more fundamentally, cutting the swing in half with higher contact rates and getting BB. We need to be aggressive once on base. If we can lead the league again in SB then I don't think the outfield looks as bad as it does. Pitching and defense can make up for the rest. I agree completely with Quintana. He has value but not in our deep rotation. Him being LHP is a plus but still not worth it.

  3. Yeah but I think he’s a September call up at earliest. He needs at least a full minor league season before I’m comfortable calling him up if I were the Marlins

  4. I think we have the depth. Rogers, Neidert, Cabrera, Castano, Garrett, Guzman and Vesia. Plus all the other impactful arms like Hoyt, Yimi and Bleier. I like Rogers as a SP but he may need some more development out of the pen. The starting rotation is already stacked unless Elieser is traded, which I said before could happen based on last year. Isan as well. I still think we need a closer. Yimi could close but if that goes bad it's going to backfire badly, because it was so glaring to see.

  6. I agree, those two are such a big X factor for the team right now. Imagine both of them had actually come up and produced the way they were expected to in the minors. We’d have a top 5 outfield for sure. There’s still time for Both so let’s see how it goes

  7. Im good with Bradley and Contreras (at the right price) but I won’t feel that Quintana is necessary. I think the rotation of Sandy, Sixto, Pablo, Elieser, and Rodgers works until Edward comes up and inevitably replaces either Rodgers or Eliser. We would also need a genuine, everyday, major league outfielder. Cause none of our outfield options are anywhere near ready and RF was a black hole

  8. I don't mean to keep saying Cubs players but Jose Quintana may fit the bill for a LH veteran that won't come very pricey. James Paxton would probably be too much. I do think we definitely need to add a veteran SP that can eat innings Sign: Quintana Bradley Trade for: Contreras That'd be a very good offseason and one that wouldn't break the bank. Would love to get a RF as well

  12. Yimi was better than Kintzler last season. If anyone is worth handing the closer spot to it's Yimi.

  13. 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 $.

  14. 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.

  15. 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. By then, a bottle of Super Cola will cost $150,000 and you'll be able to buy plutonium at the convenience store. An extra $1.5M on the books will hardly bother the White Sox plans by then.

  16. I don't understand why it matters what socks he was wearing when he signed a contract. Where is he going anyways?
