  1. I agree with pretty much everything here, except Jesus Sanchez so low. I really think this kid is going to be a top of the order hitter for us for years to come. He has the hit tool that many of our other prospect don’t have, and as we begin to become more familiar with him as a prospect I think we will realize how much that Rays trade sped up this rebuild.
  2. How many sub 700ops players have made the AS roster?
  3. The rate of developing prospects to major leaguers is very low. It’s a numbers game and volume approach. If you’re going to take a chance on a prospect (or four), you might as well take a chance on guys who have the tools to become impact players, rather than those whose ceiling is that of a fringe major leaguer. Of course, there’s balance to be had. Filling your entire organization with toolsy players can be detrimental. But the thought process is to build the system with high ceiling players in hopes of developing multiple impact players.
  4. Might want to check the reds situation at the moment. Not to mention that they are all in. I’m not proposing that we get a top 100 prospect for him, we are talking about a guy that doesn’t even crack their top 20. They just signed Ryan Lavarnway for god sakes
  5. I’d call the reds and offer them Bryan Holaday for a couple of mid level prospects. An under the radar guy for them is Joel Kuhnel.
  6. If you deem it irrelevant, why take the time to reply?
  7. That, or they just bring him up and let him sink or swim. I was pretty high on Brinson when we traded for him, but I’m moving my expectations lower by the day. At this point, I think an accurate comp would be Jorge Soler on the high end, with Cameron Maybin (not again) on the low end.
  8. I don’t adamantly disagree with that strategy. Again, only way I trade him is if it’s for a someone the FO really likes. I’m firmly against trading him for a couple of lottery tickets at the low-A level. But if there’s a AAish level player who can impact the major league roster at SS/OF/1B in the next 12-18 months, I’d have to really consider it
  9. Yeah I agree he’s definitely a solid #3/4 on an average team. The thing is, those are the exact guys you can get surplus value for at the deadline. Especially ones with very little injury concerns/history. Most of us feel pretty comfortable with what he is, but with the depth we have in the minors finally, we are in a position to capitalize should a team want to get aggressive in trading for him
  10. Disaster seems a bit of a stretch. I’m pretty low on Sandy myself, but there’s no reason he can’t be a serviceable 3-4, or a high leverage reliever. Let’s not act like this is Justin Nicolino territory where he’s going to get shelled back to AAA
  11. He’s 23 in A+ with a 7.1 BB/9. The stuff is there, but I don’t see him improving enough from a command standpoint to make it to the big leagues as a starter. He would need to make a monumental jump. It’s time to move him to the pen and see if that can mask his severe control issues in shorter outings. I think there’s a lot of Brian Ellington with this kid. Guzman & Holloway should be the first two Milb starters moved into Bullpen roles
  12. I agree with all of that (except Holloway). Richards will be better served as a bullpen arm where he can use his mix of CH & FB to get 3-6 outs an outing. If someone offers a top 100 or similar bat that is within a year or so of making it to the league, I’m jumping all over that personally.
  13. Complete curiosity here, but what would you consider a “blow away offer”? Obviously it needs to be realistic. If someone is willing to offer a low end top 100 type guy, and an intriguing piece to go with it, would you take it?
  14. Still holding out for an additional 5K in IFA money I guess
  15. This is the most Mattingly response ever. I love Miggy Ro, but come on now
