  1. Marcell Ozuna Traded to the Cardinals

    He will be 22 by the start of next season
  2. Marcell Ozuna Traded to the Cardinals

    Erick nice to hear from you and about your brother again LOL I had been meaning to tell you I guess he could compare to Gordon as a lead-off hitter But Gordon in his brief Minor league ascent had higher OBP Higher OPS and was a better hitter and a much better To this day Gordon is a hard batter to strike out As a base stealer they are not even close throughout his minor league career he had 73 SB in one season alone! In 3 1/2 years in the minors he stole 18 (60 games) 73, 53 and 32 bases Sierra's is not quite that type of basestealer He did steal 31 bases in 2016 at A level (Gordon stole 73 bases at the same level) I hope Magneuris Sierra becomes the type of lead-off hitter that Dee Gordon is but he will never be the same threat on the bases as him
  3. Marcell Ozuna Traded to the Cardinals

    Sierra has already had a cup of coffee with 60 MLB at bats for the Redbirds to which he he has made good contact however I may be wrong but he just looks like a 4th outfielder right now His K/BB ratio is horrible so if you lead him off you are not going to get the OBP desired...So what is he a 7th or 8th hitter in the lineup? We just traded away a cleanup hitter for a bottom of the order player Sure he is a good glove but last I saw Ozuna just won a Golden Glove I guess it's possible Magneuris Sierra becomes the Marlins CF for the next 10 years, however his ceiling is not even close to Dee Gordon as a lead-off hitter or base-stealer
  4. Marcell Ozuna Traded to the Cardinals

    Mike Hill is MLB top personnel guy...All other GM's love trading with him He's gotten fucked every time What was the last good trade he has made?
  5. Marcell Ozuna Traded to the Cardinals

    Marlins have traded 2 All star outfielders with 86 HRs and 256 RBIs between them and the only outfielder they get back is Juan Pierre Jr? The Cardinals have an incredible outfield organizational depth and Mike Hill trades for a player that even though is a nice lead-off prospect has the slugging potential of Miguel Rojas The pitchers obtained in the deal are all a couple of years away from major league ready Alcantara is the closest but it appears clear he needs at least a year in AAA if he is to become the starter the Marlins wish for him to be See latest scouting report https://baseballcensus.com/2017/11/28/st-louis-cardinals-sandy-alcantara-scouting-report-baseball-player-evaluation-video-2017/
  6. Stanton traded to Yankees for Castro, Guzman and Devers

    Yanks mediocre prospects are way better than Giants top prospects! This may make The Dodgers more serious in their talks with the Marlins they would hate to lose him to the Yankees...At the very least the Marlins would have to take Castro or Headley who they can then proceed and trade later on, returns will likely include Clint Frazier and/or Estevan Florial and some pitching prospects "Stanton has reportedly told the Marlins that he would approve a trade to the Yankees, Astros, Cubs and Dodgers, and while Los Angeles is also pursuing the 28-year-old outfielder, the Yankees' discussions are believed to be more advanced at this stage." https://www.mlb.com/news/yankees-in-talks-on-giancarlo-stanton-trade/c-263168408
  7. Stanton traded to Yankees for Castro, Guzman and Devers

    Why do you do this to me you know I have my even better source LOL This was taken from The NY Daily News article written by Nicholas Parco "Hal Steinbrenner and the Yankees have been preaching the importance for multiple seasons now of getting under the luxury tax for next offseason's prized free agent class that includes Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, among others." http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mlb/giancarlo-stanton-inclined-to-accept-trade-to-yankees-dodgers/ar-BBGnWfe?li=BBnba9I&ocid=iehp
  8. Stanton traded to Yankees for Castro, Guzman and Devers

    Yankees are actually trying to reduce payroll only because next year both Harper and Machado would likely be Free Agents with Stanton going to them they would be no interest in Harper or Machado
  9. Dee Gordon traded to the Seattle Mariners

    From what I was able to find on Torres is that he has shown about as much power as Juan Pierre did but scouts hope he could develop some pop in the future as he mature physically he is only 19 y/o
  10. Dee Gordon traded to the Seattle Mariners

    I agree None of these guys are anywhere to major league ready Torres is a decent prospect but is quite a way off from playing in the majors His glove is way ahead of his bat (Mariners top organizational SS) Neidert looks to have good potential, he is the Mariners top pitching prospect but was slammed when promoted to AA He combines 4 pitches high 80s to low 90s fastball Dummer is a nice 20 y/o arm lots of Ks but also lots of dingers
  11. Stanton traded to Yankees for Castro, Guzman and Devers

    Bald Pajaro don't you get tired of repeating the same thing over and over...I know I am tired of it
  12. Stanton traded to Yankees for Castro, Guzman and Devers

    Jose Martinez, Wacha and Sandy Alcantara...That would be fine with me! My understanding is the Cardinal are willing to take on Stanton's salary much more so than the Giants BTW everything I am reading is saying the Dodgers are not out it is likely they make an 11th hour move for Stanton
  13. Stanton traded to Yankees for Castro, Guzman and Devers

    I have a different take on what is happening or what the Marlins are hoping for regarding Stanton I believe they are playing chicken with regard to negotiations with the Giants hoping the Dodgers finally throw in their hat and make their proposal I would imagine the Dodger would prefer to trade Puig first before making a move for Stanton but they could be the one actually doing the dump on Puig's contract. The Dodgers and the Giants historically hate each other It is difficult to believe that if its in their power to get Stanton for themselves and keep him away from the Giants they would not do it. Seeing what the Giants are offering, they can likely do better without even taking a hit on their organizational depth. Latest reports indicate Dodgers are not disinterested as negotations go further along they may just start heating up with their conversations with the Marlins For now from we hear it's Giants or Cardinals but that may change very quickly I
  14. Stanton traded to Yankees for Castro, Guzman and Devers

    LOl that was what...8 years ago? One name in 8 years! If you want some more recent names of players claimed I can help This last season both Jose Iglesias and Michael Fulmer were claimed and the Tigers could not reach any agreement therefore they were pulled back from waivers https://detroitsportsnation.com/detroit-tigers-news/ddrysdale/report-multiple-detroit-tigers-claimed-others-clear-revocable-waivers/95385/
  15. Stanton traded to Yankees for Castro, Guzman and Devers

    The fact that the Giants deal includes Panick strongly indicates that the framework for a Gordon deal is already maturing that we have heard nothing about yet...Next week maybe a roller coaster ride for sure!
