  1. Using an individual outing from one individual pitcher is also not a good way of evaluating a trade.
  2. We now have the fourth-ranked farm system in baseball. There is literally nothing bad about that. Lewis Brinson being terrible is a precursor of absolutely nothing.
  3. So it's possible that just maybe Derek Jeter knows what he's doing after all and all of the people who were calling him a disaster after one year may have jumped the gun a little bit?
  4. The Mets don't rebuild. They just decide to patch up leaks with bubblegum and Scotch tape, which is exactly why they haven't won anything in over three decades. I also don't think we can count on the Braves, Nationals and Phillies being as dumb as the Mets.
  5. Lol so they are seriously going to do this thing where they get Stroman and then trade Syndergaard even though Syndergaard is younger, better and has more club control than Stroman? Any time you are feeling crappy about the Marlins' front office, remember: the Mets exist.
  6. I love that they are actually taking their time and trying to find the right deal rather than just dumping him off like they have done with so many other players in the past.
  7. Valid

    Harvey?

    Definitely. Best-case scenario, he pitches well and makes some nice trade bait at the deadline. Worst-case scenario, he sucks on a one-year deal. Very low-risk, high-reward.
  8. I actually wouldn't mind this. I would imagine we could get him on a cheap one-year deal and then flip him at the trade deadline if he produces.
  9. Where the heck is Larry anyway? Is he basically gone? Didn't post here for a while so I'm out of the loop.
  10. No Yankees fans even talk about Carl Pavano anymore. Regardless, it's in kind of bad taste to be cool with a move when it's made (which I'm pretty sure most of us were when we re-signed Prado) and then rip it when it unfortunately goes downhill. Injuries have also played a major role in Prado's decline. It's like saying "I hope Pitcher X throws a slider here" and then being upset when Pitcher X throws a good slider and Hitter Y goes down and smacks it to opposite field for a home run.
  11. The Prado extension looked like a good move at the time, so it's hard to hate on it.
  12. And then the Marlins screw themselves in the process. If they know he isn't going to be here long term, he needs to go. Sticking it to someone is not how you run a front office.
  13. Oh I know. That's why I responded in that manner. It's not that JT doesn't believe the Marlins are trying to build a winner; it's that he knows it's going to take a while and doesn't want to sit around and wait.
  14. Or maybe JT realizes that the Marlins likely won't be a legitimate contender for another four or five years and doesn't want to waste his prime years on a rebuilding team? You do realize that building a championship team takes time, right?
