  1. Jazz has been OK for his first full year. Has he regressed from where he started the season? Definitely. He's still shown quite a bit potential - far more than any other prospect bats we've had up. What it so curious to me is how much his defense has tapered off. He was making highlight reel play after play for seemingly the first month or so then the errors start popping up and he started whiffing on balls hit right to him. I'm hoping it's just a case of wide-eyed wonderment and he's thoroughly just really enjoying being up in the bigs. There was that lengthy story on him earlier this year and he started doing awful when the Dbacks basically told him to temper his personality. This season is a lost cause anyway so I'm hoping he'll continue taking his lumps and work with Rojas (assuming he's not traded) in the offseason at nailing down some of the little things. It's pretty clear Jazz has some ridiculous talent in him - if you could bring Rojas' drive to become the best he could be and combine with that Jazz's raw talent you'd have a helluva ballplayer. I'm just hoping he really takes the offseason to heart and busts his ass to add some polish to his game since he'll now have plenty of video and results to pore over. Rogers R.O.Y.

  7. To your point, knowing you’re not resigning Marte and NOT trading him is the worst possible outcome. Be upset if you wanted them to keep him at all costs, but don’t limit the future so you can have 70 useless games of him here

  8. Oh well. Ask for Jasson Dominguez if the Yanks want Marte so bad. Lol

  9. Don will probably make sure all the regulars get their scheduled days off for both games.

  11. I think Cooper has to go to. Trade him high - I like him, but he's overperforming, and he spends a lot of time on the IL. Get what you can for him now.

  14. I wouldn't trade either one until Eder and Meyer are pretty much ready to go and Sixto is along in his rehab... Meyer / Cabrera / Rogers / Sixto / Eder

  23. If you don't extend Marte, you of course 100% have to trade him. Would be idiotic not to.

  24. It's almost like he can hit minor league pitching and not major league pitching. (He legitimately WAS killing it in Triple-A: .267/.329/.507 with a 119 wRC+)

  27. Anyways - I am highly doubtful but this could be a trade and re-sign in the offseason situation. Get prospects now and get Marte back anyways. Like Yankees did with Chapman in '16.

  31. I'd say this nails it pretty well. Very few fans will get upset if they hear "12th round pick didn't sign and went to college instead." First round picks almost always sign and that's what most people care about at that point. 2020: All 2019: All 2018: 4 / 43 [guess they included comp balance picks here] 2017: 1 / 36 2016: 1 / 41 2015: 1 / 42 You get the idea. 2018 was a very weird outlier. All four were high school players. Of those four, one went to pitch in Japan instead (Carter Stewart, Braves, 8th overall), one went to college and moved up eight spots in this year's draft (worth it, I guess? Matt McLain, 2B), one went backwards (dropped 22 spots, ouch - JT Ginn, RHP), and the final one moved up by 17 spots in this year's draft (Gunnar Hoglund, RHP). 2017, the 1 was Drew Rasmussen who decided to continue his final year of college eligibility and ended up dropping five rounds. lol. Oddly enough he was the 31st overall pick in 2017 by the Rays, then went to the Brewers in the 6th in 2018, and ended up getting traded to the Rays this year. 2016, Nick Lodolo - high school pick - went from a 41st overall pick in 2016 to 7th overall in 2019. That's significant enough I would say. And in 32 innings in AA this year he is carving batters up. He may get arrested soon for that. 2015, Kyle Funkhouser, took his final year of college eligibility and dropped three rounds. So it's hit and miss for the players too, really. Big risk for them if they don't sign but sometimes it pays off.

  32. You bring up a good point with the timeliness of the offense. Often times, this discussion gets pushed into the “luck” category and overall random nature of baseball. Obviously there’s a portion of “clutch” hitting thats random and chance/luck certainly plays a role. It also can be controlled to an extent by constructing your offense in a way where hitters with advanced approaches and overall hit tools are getting more ABs in those clutch situations By the nature of a typical lineup, your 5-7 hitters are going to get a lot of these ABs. Our current group of 5-7 hitters have been a mix of AAA guys and high K, somewhat decent big leaguers. When this is the case, your relying on 1–4 to hit a HR, or string together 2-3 hits in a row to score even a run or two. IMO, the focus this offseason needs to be complimenting this pitching staff with an offense that is much different that the current organizational philosophy. In addition to simply needing better hitters, this offense desperately needs more guys with better hit tools that can grind out at bats in the middle to bottom of the order and at least give you a chance with RISP and less than 2 outs. You score 4 runs a game with this staff, and you’re going to win a lot of games. We have to find a guy or two that has can grind out those tough AB’s rather than chase every slider down and away AB after AB, year after year (Alfaro).

  35. Well, the Brady house has enough space for at least 9 people if you include Alice, and as far as I know it’s in Southern California, so I guess it’s for when the Nats are playing on the road vs the Dodgers or LAA. The starting lineup can stay there.

  37. Pablo last week was #5, so Rogers was #6 now, unless I'm forgetting one. You've gotta figure at least one was intentional by Urena, probably two, if I recall. So in terms of "accidental" hbp's we're on track with the entire rest of the NL (most everybody else in the NL had hit him 2-3 times when I looked last week).

  38. Right - you don't see him doing Acuna's antics when he gets hit either. It's only been 4? That MLB Network clip said 7 - it's even worse if it's only 4 times. Totally agree! It sucks for him/the Braves that he got hurt. But do I feel bad? No. I think the antics are hurting baseball even if MLB wants to promote it. I'm also with you on having no problem with players getting excited for key hits etc. But this "charge the mound" mentality every time someone pitches inside to you is ridiculous. Crowd the plate, you're going to get hit! Take your base and move on. I also doubt anything changes with him. If anything it'll probably be worse.

  40. Lmao. He'll be 33 years old in October and has a lifetime .793 OPS. I would hardly blame the Marlins for not wanting to go four years on him. The idea that Marte is this guy that we absolutely cannot lose is funny to me. He's not Miguel Cabrera. Yeah I want to keep him, but only at a reasonable cost. Like, if you didn't walk away when the Marlins traded Stanton and Yelich but will walk away if they let Starling Marte go? Then that's really, really silly.

  41. I dont see why a player like Marte wouldnt accept a deal with a vesting option or two and/or incentive based escalators. the real issue is the base so many have mentioned is already 20 mil MORE than the low ball insulting offer the front office supposedly presented. I mean there is cheap and trying to get a good deal. Offer 3/40 if you want that. 3/30 is just flat insulting to a player like Marte.

  42. Its not even that ok of an offer honestly.

  43. What's ironic is that Jeter the player would have told Jeter the front office guy to go fuck himself and find himself a new team with an offer that insulting.
