  1. He deserves a bench spot. Not much else to say here. Has more tools than Solano and can fill in at 3b, 2b, and apparently 1b now.
  2. I hope we can keep him. He is a high floor type with great experience on the back end of the rotation. He would help more than he would hurt the team next year. I just hope he can drink the cool aid and try to be part of something that the front office is putting together.
  3. The farm is just terrible. No real high upside besides Kolek maybe. Our position players are as average as they come. We just put a lot of emphasis on stacking the MLB roster so now maybe we can hit the ground running with incoming prospects. It's not like we had a great farm system prior to the trades but as of now we have a terrible farm system. Some few possible bright spots Anderson and maybe Davis as stated above but nothing that pops out at you. We have done a decent job in semi recent years in the draft ie. Stanton, Yellich so maybe there is some hope there. Only one 50+ prospect

  5. Expensive but would make a difference to our recently thinned out rotation.
  6. I'd rather DD begin the season in AAA, playing 3rd exclusively to see if he can handle the position defensively. If so, maybe he's a stopgap until the next 3rd base prospect is ready (I'm holding out hope that Brian Anderson develops). At the very least, the flexibility could increase his trade value. Martin Prado is the stopgap until Anderson develops. He's a college product, shouldn't take too much longer than that if he's the real deal. Fair enough, but you never know what could happen over the next 2 years. Having DD ready to play 3rd if necessary would be a nice luxury to have. I'd
  7. Salty should get some of his mojo back. He is serviceable at best with last years numbers. I expect more.
  8. He also had a good sowing in the AFL if I'm not mistaken. It feels like the huge gap between the perception of Avery Romero and Justin Bohn isn't in line with reality Couldn't agree more. More versatile with the glove and better speed on the bases with just about the same numbers at the plate last year besides a lower BA but higher everything else. I guess draft results are playing a big part here.
  9. based on two months last year. Gordon's career outside of those are not pretty. You continue to ignore sample size and take statistical aberrations at face value, defying all common logicpos Is positive progression not important? Above average minor league numbers, two years figuring out the major league game while playing two positions, third year at 2b full time and an all-star appearance. Seems like a he's on the right track. Inexpensive and if he can figure out getting on base at a higher clip (which many players do) great upside for a second baseman.
  10. Maybe not but not making the top 20? Obviously should be top 20!!
  11. One very productive season when not injured. Will make a difference and is fairly cheap. I like this to an extent. WS experience is a plus and the guy may be able to display some power even in the big park. Wish we could have gotten a little more but we would have had to give up some prospects and spend a lot more. May be a steal if he stays healthy.
  12. If they are going to do something do it right. None of this maybe this guy will work crap.
  13. Decent player that has been injury plagued. Might be able to platoon at multiple positions. Not a bad.
  14. I thought this was already understood. Why else would the contract be so back end loaded? I understand to build a team now but there is always an ulterior motive.
  15. It's far to early to determine if trading PROSPECTS is a good deal or not. I agree that Gordon has an upside that can't be matched by anyone in the league if he can get on base at an above average clip. He also gets to a lot of balls that most others can't get to in the field. I'm o.k. with trading prospects for a high upside impact player that can contribute now. We gave up two average prospects and a possibly average Heaney (3rd in the rotation) for a once proven all-star with the possibility of many more. Remember this guy didn't start playing baseball till high school so he is still r
  16. I'm not in love but I don't completely hate it. For those that question the defense or say he is just average please look at his stats. Gordon is a career .981 fielder at 2B in MLB and has a ton of range which means he gets to balls most other don't. As far as his hitting his minor league numbers were about par with our current best hitting infield prospect but Dee has fantastic speed and knows how to use it. His major league numbers (minus the lack of walks) are better than we are giving him credit for. In just three limited seasons in MLB he has an avg. of .272, 43 doubles, 17 triples
  17. http://www.milb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20141203&content_id=102884220&fext=.jsp&vkey=news_milb&sid=milb A little offseason overview of our below average minor league system. - I really wish Barnes would get the opportunity Solano has repeatedly gotten. - I hope Anderson can stay at second, but if the power really comes, than by all means 3B isn't a bad place. - Big year for Justin Bohn coming up. In fact, hopefully Anderson, Romero or Bohn can emerge into a top 100 guy. Would mean a lot to have a legit prospect in the infield. - Not excited about Nicolino very m
  18. Expensive acquisition for sure. I'm not opposed. I'm guessing he's around 12.5 per type at 33 and looking at his previous pay.
  19. The thing is, everyone hits in Greensboro, so nobody is jumping the gun on Wallach yet. The encouraging thing is he walked more than he struck out, and that's hard to do anywhere. Well put. Greensboro stats are always inflated and don't mean a whole lot. I also, like the Wallach's ability to get on base. Can't score runs if your not on base. Although, he did not hit well in the AFL so hopefully that is not a sign into the future.
  20. Why Solano got his shot and Barnes hasn't is odd. I'm cool with Barnes as a utility player as well, but man do I agree with you about why Solano got his shot and Barnes not. If you compare their minor league careers it is clear that Barnes is better stat wise.
  21. Will Barnes get a chance to get out from behind the plate and stay there? He seems to be as good of a middle infield prospect as any we have offensively and could possibly make sense as an infielder if he were able to concentrate on one position only. He doesn't seem like a proto catcher, rather his frame reminds me of an infielder. I understand he is average at best but his numbers look better than our other options. Minors career stat lines: A. Barnes - 4 seasons G PA AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS 419 185
