  1. I play in an adult league too bro! Can’t give up on the dream lol.
  2. Did you really ask if facing BETTER hitters will stunt his development? who actually played past middle school here?
  3. There’s nothing realistic about saying he won’t be in the rotation next year. From a Managers standpoint you say that for PR and to inspire competition but there’s no way in God’s earth he isn’t going to be at least in the. No. 4 spot just based off pure talent alone and not including his early success. He has already proven he has the best big league stuff out of the entire rotation. A bad game in the playoffs doesn’t change that. Don’t know if you realize but out of all the guys that are going to be competing he would have the 3rd most experience behind Pablo and Eliesar AND far and away the
  4. What is this thread? He was 3-2 with an under 3.50 ERA. Like what? He pitched brilliantly vs. the Cubs too.
  5. I think it’s pretty easy to say that Hill had more say with Loria than he did with Jeter. Jeter brought guys from the yankees here and gave them elevated roles. That’s all that needs to be said.
  6. Defensively yea, he just had an off year with the bat.
  7. If we’re really thinking cost effective prospect wise and money wise then the plan is pretty simple. C- Sign Matt Weiters to a 2-3 mil deal, Keep Wallach on the 40 but move him down 2nd- Josh Harrison to a 4 mil deal, Berti can move to a more natural utility role LF- Jurickson Profar. If he explodes he could offer a big return on a short term deal + he’s a movable piece. Can essentially play anywhere. Move Dickerson to a DH role. RF- Josh Reddick on a 1-2 year deal. SP- Alex Wood on a price it deal RP/CL- Ken Giles on a prove it deal
  8. If we’re considering a trade for somebody then why not hit up the cubs about Willson Contreras and Jacob Stallings of the Pirates. I wouldn’t mind packaging Alfaro, Guzman, Misner, Urena, and maybe Holloway/Guzman if it got me Contreras and Jose Martinez? Stallings and Musgrove for the Pirates?
  9. JT is unrealistic...like in outer space realistic because of money/contract. He’s not going to be healthy after this one is up. Just how playing Catcher is. McCann is realistic and we’ll only shell out somewhere between 11-13 mil a year plus add pop to the lineup. A cheap option would be Matt Weiters but he would be a righty only option. It’s also worth looking at Wilson Ramos and Mike Zunino if their options aren’t picked up.
  10. Probably. I don’t know how we don’t consider McCann being that it’s the biggest hole in our lineup fielding and hitting wise.
  11. Right? But yea I think signing McCann to a 12-15 mil a year deal is the way to go with the catching situation and some more pop. James is great with pitchers and he’ll smack 18 over the fence.
  12. You can give a prove it deal to Wood. I would actually pay to sign Brian McCann and make that my offseason splash.
  13. I would say so. That’s what you would be paying for an above average reliever to begin with. I would still add somebody like Joakim Soria for about 5-6 just to extend it.
  14. Point I’m trying to make. Buy low and and sell high once club control is up. Or keep him...whatever Jeter wants. Same with Renfroe who’s probably cheaper prospect-wise to get.
  15. I read the Rays were trying to part away with a couple of their mid tier guys. Randy Arozarena probably makes Hunter Renfroe available who’s cheap and has 3 years of ball club control. Maybe Meadows? We could approach the Pirates about Jose Osuna or Polanco. Don’t think they move Bell or Moran. The Rockies can look to move Trevor Story but he’ll hit FA next year Obviously you have Francisco Lindor who’ll probably be unrealistic The Cubs are probably shopping Kris Bryant. Orioles willing to budge on one of their young catchers? Cisco or Severino?
  16. Orrrrrrr we can take advantage of the ball club control we have on our pitching and win now instead of waiting and shorten the length of team everybody can be together.
  17. If this is how you’re thinking then move a package involving Sierra, Diaz, or Monte to Texas for Lance Lynn or a pitcher of similar pedigree? Add Michael Brantley and Joc Pederson on a prove it deal? I still think adding at least Matt Weiters needs to happen because Wallach isn’t a consistent hitter and Alfaro has now chemistry. Lineup: 1. SS Miggy Ro 2. LF/RF Michael Brantley 3. CF Starling Marte 4. 1B Aguilar/Cooper 5. 3rd BA 6. DH/RF Joc Pederson 7. LF/RF Harold or Dickerson 8. C Alfaro/Weiters 9. 2nd Berti Rotation 1. Alcantara
  18. I don’t think we should consider ourselves a desired destination to we actually show that we’re willing to pay to be competitive.
  19. So let’s get this back on track. I believe the marlins need to be aggressive. C- just gut it. Pay McCann 12-15 mil/yr. Keep Wallach. Package Alfaro somewhere. 1B- really unattractive market here. Justin Smoak fills the lefty power bat void. Changed my mind here, I’m fine staying Aguilar/Cooper. I want Lewin Diaz to have an opportunity to win the job eventually. 2nd- I’ve been adamant that I love La Stella here and Josh Harrison. La Stella is going to command more though so I’ll roll with Josh Harrison. That’s probably 4 mil SS- Miggy Ro until proven other wise
  20. We weren’t talking about Andujar...
  21. Honestly, I would do my best to add through free agency and not even discuss a trade. It was just being discussed as an option. The Front office has to make a decision on if they want to take advantage of this pitching(which is what I would do) or continue trying to develop. This team do some damage if they sign some veteran stop gates like Josh Reddick, Justin Smoak, Tommy La Stella, an a legit catcher in McCann and probably compete for a playoff spot but they have to be willing to budget on that check box a bit.
  22. See this makes sense. Yea of course. That’s where I would start though. I have no problem going with Monte, Connor Scott, and guys of that nature. What I’m saying though is that they need means to get pitching. Are you going to Texas and trading For Lance Lynn for Miguel Andujar? No. They are going to want prospects. The Royals are going to want prospects are going to want prospects for Danny Duffy. They are probably going to be the most popular names this winter when it comes to movable pitching as of right now. Andujar isn’t going to be enough alone with his injury history and that he probab
  23. 1. An impact bat is a need. Urshela is a bigger, better version of Anderson...and an impact bat. 2. They want veteran pitching 3. they have no means to get veteran pitching without clearing their already depleted farm system 4. I’m giving means to get some veteran pitching by giving them a couple of my better prospects. ^These are facts. Your opinions about prospect talent level aren’t.
