  1. Larnach will end up being a stud for many years. We can "fill" Taylor Roger spot right now (even if only 85% of it.) I would much rather give up Rogers for Paddock...... than Larnach!
  2. Oh boy.....3 for 3 yesterday and suddenly let's compare him to Trout? Agree with the Mad King.......let's play more than 100 games this year.....and then we can talk.
  3. I sure don't like to see Sanchez at the top of this list! If he was a middle of the pack defensive catcher, his hitting numbers could be bearable behind the plate. His numbers DON'T hold up as a "regular" DH. I would rather have Kiriloff, Larnach, Rooker, Sano, or Arraez at DH over Sanchez.
  4. A lot of pressure on Ryan and Ober (and 2-3 other young pitchers who will be forced up due to injury.) If they are not successful.......this is a "D" grade based on only getting Sonny Gray as a viable starting pitcher.
  5. Ugh....I hate to see Sanchez even mentioned as a DH. I would much rather have Sano, Larnach, or Kiriloff in that spot (heck, maybe even Rooker!)
  6. I like everything that Danchat says above. Palacios would already be Adrianza or Simmons. Solid glove and weak bat. "Seems" like there is still some potential there with his bat though.
  7. Why not have the guy come up a fail a bit at 25 and then come back at age 26 to be rock solid. Use the Berrios as the rule...instead of the exception. Last year would have been a perfect opportunity. Of course, keeping control of them for an additional year is the reason you wouln't do that. Again....Berrios........
  8. I think we have heard about Sano "getting in shape" for the past 5-6 years. I hope that is true this year!
  9. flexibility doesn't equal long term success. It might mean we are a .500 plus team this year. That would be improvement and the front office keeps it's job. I guess it depends on what you are looking for.
  10. Letting him throw as hard as he can for one inning.....2-3 times a week......is a recipe for disaster both short term and long term.
  11. Agree....what is plan B. Story isn't signing with the Twins (probably Houston.) Palacios or Lewis? Both will hit .220......... but Palacios will play better defense.
  12. I just don't feel he is going to have enough time to establish himself as a reliable bullpen arm coming out of spring training. I would imagine he will get released after his second poor outing........
  13. Oh boy......2-3 days later.......and we are already working the "change of scenery" angle? Next week: "He really worked on his pitch framing in the off season........"
  14. After adding Pineda, and after adding Story, this team is still a 4 place team....with this pitching staff. Swap in Gray for Berrios.....that part seems pretty even. Swap in Story and Urshela bats for Donaldson.....that seems pretty even. We appear to be the same as last year (at best.) I guess we can still bank on the rest of the division getting worse.....
  15. We got rid of Berrios because we were going to be a poor team....... so why not get something for him. Now we give up a recent #1 pick to GET a similar player (I thing Gray will be rock solid,) to be a poor team. Makes no sense.
