Kimbrel and Melvin Upton to Padres


Admin

Recommended Posts

Hearing Atlanta is already considering DFAing Quentin just to see if an AL club will take him. How embarrassing for Quentin. The very definition of a throw in guy.

 

Atlanta thinks Maybin has a role as a part time CF but this thing was totally "you take Melvins entire contract and give us a smidgen of an additional return and you can have Kimbrel."

 

End of story.

AJ Preller is NOT messing around this year.

 

If I'm a Padres fan I'd be somewhat worried because this is so similar to the 2012 Marlins disaster. Bud Black is so crucial to this experiment. He may be the only thing holding this patchwork ship together.

 

​Eh, they've filled a lot of holes, but their infield still sucks all around and their outfield defense is going to be beer league softball.

​yup.

 

this trade doesnt really accomplish much of anything in terms of improving their greatest weakness.

​Their bullpen was already a strength, this just makes it more of a strength. They still have three statues in the outfield, four questionable Major Leaguers in the infield, and a bunch of question marks in the rotation.

Wil Myers is a statue in the outfield?

 

...the rest I'm with ya though.

 

​Wil Myers isnt a center fielder.

 

I dont think I'd necessarily call Justin Upton and Matt Kemp as statues in the outfield, but they arent amazing.

 

The infield defense (aside from Alonso) may not be all that great.

 

Norris behind the plate has been horrid defensively over his career.
