Man, I want a big pot of chicken soup now with some celery in it.
those Zicam dissolvable tablets are legit miracle drugs for keeping a cold from ruining your life. have to make sure you follow the instructions exactly but man - they are one of the few OTC remedies that actually work.That actually sounds great right now. I have the beginnings of a cold....trying to keep it from turning into a cold.
You know! I forgot I have some of those, thanks!those Zicam dissolvable tablets are legit miracle drugs for keeping a cold from ruining your life. have to make sure you follow the instructions exactly but man - they are one of the few OTC remedies that actually work.
I agree with the first part.Yeah, Ive been on the ozuna train for a bit. I think hed be a fantastic signing. And really, signing an outfielder and maybe 1 or 2 bp arms is all i want them to do.
I love your posts and wish you would post here a lot more often. Seems you do more so in the offseason. But I gotta disagree with your last statement.I agree with the first part.
An impact multi-year RHP veteran bat who will be in their prime at 3B/OF (Rendon, Ozuna, Castellanos)
A 1 year positional starter at 3B/OF (move Anderson as needed)
Then a bunch of MiLB deals to a backup Neil Walker, Sergio Romo, and Chad Wallach replacements.
Bonus points if they sign a rehab SP candidate (Alex Wood?) on a 1 year deal and sell him a pitcher's park in the NL.
I like Stanek, Steckenrider, Brice, Brigham, Urena/E. Hernandez, Garcia, Conley, and Quijada as a bullpen. I'd roll with that but if a vet beats someone (likely Quijada), cool?
They have plenty of payroll to add a $15-18 million a year player for 3-4 years, and they need a right handed bat badly. Lewin, Isan, Jazz, Bleday, and Sanchez are lefties. Anderson, Monte, and Alfaro don't really break that up if all works out. I think Monte has the highest bust rate of the above . Getting a veteran right hander with some thump is a big organizational need. If Ozuna wants 5/$110, no thanks. I think 4/$72 from the Marlins will be very competitive. Maybe I'm wrong. I don't think this is a splurge. Their payroll is going to be under $50 million the next 3 seasons doing nothing. Adding Ozuna still puts them in the discussion of "lowest in baseball." Also, they need to re-negotiate their TV deal (better product, more eyeballs), get naming rights (better product, easier to sell), start inching towards respectability with the fan base and showing a better product consistently on the field, etc. They need to start acting like a franchise and get better. This would be a GREAT step IMO. Same with Rendon or Castellanos. Show us you care.I love your posts and wish you would post here a lot more often. Seems you do more so in the offseason. But I gotta disagree with your last statement.
Signing Rendon would be the type of move Miami should make but if that doesn't come along they really shouldn't start splurging. Things really don't start to pick up until next offseason and that is if Harrison, Encarnacion, and others end up doing well when they get called up.
I think signing Ozuna would be awful. I thank him for his years here but he has proven to have boneheaded moves and while his hard-hit rate has been good he isn't worth anything close to what he will be asking for.
Besides that if, the rest of the bullpen would be a black hole. Right now the only real locks are Jarlin Garica and Stanek everyone else will battle it out in Spring Training. I do expect 2 signings to happen. Hopefully middle relief, set up with someone that can close.
I personally don't think that matters at all, but they are going to keep being them.Ozuna was given a qualifying offer today so that may end the interest by Miami if they had any. Would cost the team a draft pick.
Oh, Cubs can't offer him one since he was a mid-season acquisition, right? Hadn't thought of that ... alright, get him.I personally don't think that matters at all, but they are going to keep being them.
But it's also why I think Castellanos is a better option, among other things.
