Not seen Magnificent 7 in its entirety.

Have seen 7 Samurai though, and know it for an adaptation.

Is there a triangle man in Magnificent 7?

Wonder if the Twins would have any interest in Abreu during the offseason...

Sign him to play first... Professional hitter who has been a top 10 run producer since he's entered the league.

WTF Eddie. Gio has shown he doesn't have command, and you chase that on the first pitch.

He is fundamentally unsound. We see it every game on offense or defense. Yes, he's also going to smack some around the park but, Jeez, how about some discipline!

I think I'd rather they find a 3rd baseman and move Sano to first.

He's also not a former Ranger or Indian, so the FO probably wouldn't have any interest anyways.

He's getting older, and worse, each of the last two years. This team is DESPERATE for pitching next year, and putting money into a declining first baseman seems like a really bad idea.

 

Find a 3B and move Sano (as Chief suggests) or move Garver or Kiriloff (who was getting time at first this year).Or take a flyer on someone younger. but no way I spend real money on Abreu given their needs and budget.

 

I mean, I get the idea, it's just not who I'd choose. (neither is Cron)
