  1. Some of this shit is wild. You people want to trade away our proven starting pitchers who are under club control for what exactly? When we start oozing starting pitching, we can talk about making those trades.... I bet you we never do. Because baseball. And we aren't trading away everyone in the starting lineup either, by the way. Holy shit

  2. I don't understand why it's a pipe dream to trade Pablo. I guess it depends on what you're smoking in the pipe. LOL Pablo is the kind of young player that we are trying to build our core around. If we can't extend, and build around our young home grown talent, then we might as well give up all hope right now. Trading away vetrans like Marte, Aguilar, Duvall and Cooper makes sense because we have possible replacements that are younger, cheaper and have higher ceilings. Trading away a building block for more unproven prospects is ludicrous. And please don't tell me that we have better pitchers in the minors so he's expendable. Until those pitchers prove themselves in the big leagues, there's no reason to move anyone. Just my cents.

  3. I mean he's 23 with electric stuff and only threw 39 innings last year (and was, for the most part, really solid). Isn't it a little too early to say we don't trust him? As for all of the "trade Pablo" talk, do you people realize how rare it is to have this type of starting pitching? All we need is a semi-competent offense and we'll be in legitimate contention for years to come. People said his value had never been higher last year either, and look what happened: it has only increased. Maybe the dude is just really freaking good and we shouldn't trade him for a prospect? Only way I'm even considering moving Pablo is if we get a proven major-league bat in return. Otherwise, hell no.

  4. An average player at every position in our lineup would make this a first place team. That would likely give us.... Average run production... With very good pitching. Then we can either buy a superstar position player or wait until the farm produces one

  6. Just feel like the general consensus around here is that he’s the best all around hitter on the team. He doesn’t have enough speed to hit lead off. He doesn’t have enough contact to hit 2nd or 3rd on most teams. Not enough power to hit cleanup, so I think most teams would view him more as their #5/#6 hitter in their lineup. His defense is far from elite. And while I realize you can’t have a superstar at every position, I just don’t view him as the franchise building block that many people make him out to be. I think he’s a good baseball player, but that he’s closer to average than superstar.

  9. This is exactly what I’m talking about. Both have EXTREME home/away splits, and both are below average defensively. Yet here we are, forcing two guys that should be platooning with one another, into full time roles. And not only that, we’re trying to cherry pick stats to make them look like a better ball player than they are. Take into consideration that they’re blocking two of the more MLB-ready prospects in the organization, and it’s obvious that they both should be traded.

  12. Cooper and Aguilar are both OPSing over .800 and are on pace for a 2+ WAR seasons. You don't get rid of those guys when you have them under control for multiple seasons. They're not superstars, but if everyone hit like them this team would be in first. I don't think this team needs to do much else than sign a few players and wait for some of the better position player prospects to come up. If the pitching staff gets crowded, then you trade an SP for an equivalent position player.

  13. This team has proven it can actually develop starting pitching which is why I'm OK with - and hell, I'm even advocating for - the idea of trading Pablo. I've been saying it since last offseason began, even. And his value has only increased this year. We don't have much depth in the middle infield or third base (or catcher) which is why I suggested trading him for a good shortstop or third baseman who is close. On that side of the infield, only Dunand or Brigman are close. And they're allergic to the idea of bringing up Brigman for some reason, but maybe (hopefully) after the deadline. ... maybe. We really need some bats and we're eventually going to have to trade from some of this pitching. That includes trading away at least one established guy. Pablo isn't going to help us anymore this year. He might not even help us next year at the rate this offense is going. So may as well get something good for him while his value is at its highest.

  14. I kinda don't trust Sixto ever amounting to much of anything after watching him get hit hard for most of the 2nd half of his season last year and when you combine that with his seemingly endless injuries and/or poor conditioning issues.

  15. 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

  17. I can’t blame them for not wanting to go 4 years. Frankly, I also would be hesitant on 3 years given his age. The best offer I would give is: 3 years 42million* YR 1: 18 million GTD YR 2: 14 million GTD YR 3: Team Option: 10 million

  23. Trade Pablo to a contender who has a very good 3B or SS prospect that's close.
