  1. i'm pretty sure they'll sign Watson. There's always a chance they don't but it's pretty rare for first rounders especially. But with this group, they feel cheaper and cheaper with each passing week especially with how they've approached Marte. so far it really does feel like this group is even cheaper than Loria and man that is insanely difficult to believe. If we believe the DH is coming, shouldn't have any issues with giving Marte 4 years and front loading it -THEY CAN AFFORD IT! he should still be a decent bat 4 years from now at a reduced cost and they could let him DH at that point if he's completely unable to even play a corner slot or trade him to another team (again, a perk of front loading salary). Realistically, this team should have signed JT this past offseason, already retained Marte (based on what the rumored asking price from his camp was) and be looking hard at signing a Kris Bryant type guy this offseason. That would be a VERY good team and have cost this team NOTHING in terms of their seemingly endless wealth of starting pitching prospects. They have the additional sources of revenue they've been whining about, they have the starting pitching, they even have a closer (Bender, not Yimi). It's just gross how fucking cheap they are and knowing this team could have a top 5 farm system AND be a serious contender at the SAME TIME.

  2. It's so effing sad that we can't lock up a top 5 CF for what looks to be a pretty reasonable asking price. Marte is an athletic freak and will be highly productive for another 5+ years. You know what would be awesome? If we re-signed him, didn't trade Aguilar and threw a boatload of cash at Kris Bryant. Pipe dream because that's what teams serious about contending would do.

  4. I'm curious about what makes you say that? Pablo is outpitching his peripherals, but only very slightly. He's put up a 3.03 ERA with a 3.21 FIP and 3.35 xFIP (also a 3.48 SIERA). Meanwhile, Sandy: 3.23 ERA, 3.56 FIP, 3.83 xFIP, 4.07 SIERA. So if anyone's actually outpitching their true value and putting up unsustainable numbers, it's Sandy (I actually think they are both very good, mid-3 ERA pitchers that make up an excellent 2/3 combo in the rotation after our ace Ross Detwiler Trevor Rogers

  12. Oh. That wouldn't be in MLB next year and may not happen - even so one foot isn't actually nearly as big a deal as people are making it. It'll help offense a little, for sure, but not extreme.

  13. 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.

  14. 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
