  1. Maybe I'm still shell shocked from Loria, but that trade seems a little Loria-esque for the Cubs. You make good points with Realmuto so I could be off. I'm no expert either. Maybe the answer is more relative to perception than an actual market? IMO the Realmuto trade was decent but I think we could have gotten more. We took all the risks, Sixto had an injury that put him out a years time? Alfaro seemed like a filler for the position we needed. I think we could have gotten more. Bryant is a 3X all star, MVP and rookie of the year. He's not going to fly under the Cubs radar.
  2. Getting him out of Atlanta would be a big incentive.
  3. The Bryant trade makes sense but the asking price is still going to be one of Bleday, Max or Lopez plus another couple of mid range prospects. The problem is if he has a great FA year, we will be stuck into a situation like Phillies. Not only did they lose Sixto, but they may lose out on Realmuto. I agree we need let these youngsters develop. But trading for a one year rental with the risk of him walking isn't worth it. Wouldnt it be better just sign Ozuna and downgrade to Molina?
  4. Its great that the media has pushed equality. But they seem to push an agenda to cause division even after the belief they stand for is being practiced. Just like the tweet you just posted. Amazing!!
  5. Well it helps to the argument that it's not just a PR move.
  6. Hill had that title, how much he could preform in it was probably circumstantial depending on the situation, specially with Jeter, who didn't make that hire. Ng should be respected with more liberties because she was personally hired by Jeter and has a nice track record to back it up. Hopefully Jeter keeps the gloves off and lets her be accountable to the title of her employment.
  7. I wasn't referring to you at all. Its was just a precursor before we know how much she signed for.
  8. If Jeter looks past the boundaries of conventionalism, then whatever her salary is, will be just as genuine. Don't make this a trap game for Jeter if her pay doesn't equal the highest qualified of GMs. Promotion is just as rewarding as salary.
  9. And that should have been the main point, not money. That is what Jeter is looking for, transparency.
  10. Some of us are conditioned that way. To much of one thing, blinds our sense of reality and whatever looks remotely similar is perceived to be the same.
  11. Sometimes silence speaks louder than words.
  12. That's Lorias legacy. To be the punchline for a good Marlin joke.
  13. Worth watching. I don't agree with most of his analysis, but it's a nice story for our team. He mentions our run differential as being a fluke in the win to loss column. We had 3 streaks this year. The first was with Cervelli, the 2nd with Alfaro and the last was Wallach. If I remember Alfaro could have been the worst of the 3 streaks? Maybe that is where the point differential comes into play?
  14. Taiwanmarlin ringing the dinner bell again.
  15. I think Hills time here has taught him a lot. I'm sure he seen it all, good and bad. If he does have the talent for talent he should do well. What he put up with from Loria, I'm sure he could weather it in LA.
  16. I agree with the idea of bringing in Molina. He has ties with Albert Pujols and would speed up the pitching development. If that is the case maybe Hill could have a something to offer there. No reason to bring in Molina if that isn't the plan. They need to protect Trout with this concept or it's just another Pujols parody. Trouts contract doesn't completely cause them to window shop. They just need to let the print dry on the bill a bit before they spend. This would be a great place to GM. They basically are the Dodgers but they build in FA while the Dodgers build and retain within the system.
  17. It would be telling if Hill was hired. Hamstrung by $651 mill would allow him to showcase how well he can manage in scouting and development. Trouts contract dampens their spending. Pujols has one year remaining, shredding a thin layer off. They better get it right soon or Trout will have Pujols like seasons in terms of team success.
  18. This team is going to be electric very soon.
  19. You and Silver push me to be better poster.
  20. Cleveland would take our best prospects. They trade at high peaks and consume back with more investment. They are a blueprint on how to win consistently without spending or unloading top prospects. They haven't had a losing season since 2012. It's being done here so far. If we start trading are TOP prospects, for me, it would be birth pains of Loria all over again. Sometimes the slow pace wins the race.
