  1. Knew it had to be the Angels. Glad marsh was their target over Adell. Also like that they checked in on Reynolds. They’re on the right thought process, now need to make something happen
  2. You act like we traded Babe Ruth with 15 years of team control for these guys lol.
  3. I have a hard time to see Hudson as anything more than a 4. Doesn’t miss enough bats. Even in his quality major league season, he had a 4.93 FIP. A guy who doesn’t miss bats who also has control/command issues don’t excite me much. We’ll see I guess
  4. Flaherty and Lib are legit. Thompson might want to take his time in AAA. Guy is getting shelled. Hudson and Kim, Meh.
  5. That Sandy, Gallen 1-2 punch is going to keep the cardinals competitive.
  6. I believe Marsh is back from the IL. He played last night for LAA
  7. Still think we end up making a trade with the Angels. Marsh or Adell for SP. Meyer or Eder + a younger guy like Fulton. Just makes too much sense given their needs and they have a surplus of OFers
  8. Smart moving Luzardo to AAA. Let him go make a couple starts and get familiar with the new organization. Last thing you want is to have him make a short turnaround start out of routine, get hit around and continue to kill his confidence.
  9. Ketel and Bryan Reynolds are 1 and 2 for me personally. I’d be willing to move Pablo + for either guy
  10. Completely agree. Also why I’m scared that this CF move might be for Jo Adell. He fits the mold of what they’ve looked for recently. We really need a Bryan Reynolds type. I would even settle for Brandon Marsh. Just go get someone with a big league approach
  11. I understand the PCL is a hitter friendly environment, but I’d still rather have a relatively young hitting prospect that’s actually putting up good numbers, rather than the projection guy that’s not producing at all. We have enough of those guys. I could see this guy becoming our next Harold Ramirez
  12. We should go get that Brinson guy. If not, ill settle for Monte.
  13. I think a team desperate to compete prior to a major sell off would. The A’s are going to lose a good amount of their pieces this year with guys getting expensive in arbitration...Olson, Chapman, Laureano, etc. This core likely won’t be around next year, and they desperately needed an OF piece to give them a chance. Also consider, outside of Gallo, impactful OF bats were few and far between. We now know the Rangers wanted a haul of prospects for Gallo. That paired with Gallo galloping around that spacious OF paint a good picture as to why they ponied up for Marte. Not to mention that fact that he costs them $0 this year with Miami paying the remainder of his salary One last point, Oakland traded for Elvis Andrus this offseason instead of resigning Marcus Semien. Yes, Oakland is a smart team and is pretty protective of their prospects. But no team is perfect, especially not desperate ones
  14. I don’t think you brush off his struggles, but context paints a much more optimistic picture than baseball reference. For starter, Luzardo has already had success at the big league level, not to mention in the playoffs at an extremely young age. Brinson had not prior to being sent to Miami. As I mentioned earlier, Luzardo was brought up to the show extremely early. Had he pitched in AAA his age 22 and 23 seasons (like most big prospects) he would’ve absolutely dominated that league and probably positioned himself as a top 5 prospect in baseball. The industry became infatuated with Edward Cabrera after dominating A+ and AA ball at age 21. Luzardo was dominating AAA and had a successful cup of coffee in the show at that age. Instead, Oak challenged (or rushed) him, and he responded quite well. This year has been rough for him, no doubt. But it’s also a total of about 60 IP at age 23 for a guy who wasn’t allowed proper time to develop. We basically just got an elite level pitching prospect who we’ve been able to see pitch in the majors some. All for 2 months of Marte. And the best part? We aren’t reliant on him developing into an ace. If he develops into a 2/3? Awesome. If not, totally fine. We have enough depth to fill in the spots. Even his worst case is a really intriguing reliever option
