  1. Completley frustrated with our use of Duran and Pegan as well as the others!! As they say "pick a lane"!! 1. Duran should be the undisputed closer... period. ONLY used 1 inning. Drives me bonkers ... use up Duran for 2 innings... 1st inning dominant... 2nd inning gets hit same with Pegan. Not only that but we hancuff our team by doing that. You burn one or both and they are not at thier best the next outing. So... can't use for the next day.. How about use Pegan as primary setup.. Duran as primary closer... move on.. PLEASE...PLEASE... this is not rocket science... Metrics .. schmetrics... this is dumb!!
  2. And with what ever we get in a trade we are not winning the WS next year... Play to win this year and let it play out...
  3. Thanks ... heading there in July... nice pregame....
  4. Hopefully he does well... that being said AAA batters vs the show... night and day. Has to hit his spots and keep the ball down...
  5. Not sure why you didn't explore trading him... Could have .. should have included him in the SD trade and taken Hosmer back... Am SURE they would have done it.. Get his name out there get what you can and move on. He may flourish somewhere else... who knows but he clearly is not getting it done here.. Cut bait...
  6. SD not giving back a top prospect as already gave up a starter (they could now use) and a decent bullpen arm. Likely a very young guy or an older prospect to clear room in their system for up and comers. Morejon would make some sense as he has not stayed healthy... lottery ticket with upside. Big young arms or older ones with 2 pitch ability for the pen would also make sense.. to many options to actually have a clue... but my shot in the dark... but... old guys that fit... Steven Wilson 27... Ray Kerr... LHP actually would make a bunch of sense for bullpen.. Young guys.. Susana would make sense and be a great get... !! Jagger Haynes.. LHP.. coming back from TJ.. projectable project...
  7. Quality Move.. both baseball wise and business wise. Paddack will be in the rotation.. period. Who gets bumped...? has to be Bundy or Archer... both have had success in the past but are coming off tough or injury years. Sorry Ted.. Ober leaving the rotation makes ZERO sense. He is one of our core pitchers for years to come.. Bundy and Archer are lottery ticket rehab guys. Bullpen will be fine... high end arms and I think Duran slots right into the closer spot and stays there for the next 5 years... and dominant.
  8. Twin's will wait for more teams to trim down and see if they can find an arm that way.. Then figure out we need to trade for a good arm and give up a few prospects... Would be good with Manea for less of a price and let the youngsters get one more year of experience. Other thing is we NEED to prove to Correa that we are serious about contending or he will walk...
  9. Like Duran a lot but if it takes him to go to Oakland for Montas .. I am good with that .. would take extra pieces of course. For those not wanting to deal our arms.. Remember Grateral? Me neither... If not moving him get his arm up here....
  10. As I said in another area... if we don't find another quality starter (might cost Duran) I really think we should use him as an "opener" type guy. Once through the order and done. At least for a while. If he shows he is healthy and able to handle it go to 3-4 innings.. then 4-5... Get him experience in small doses. Is really a smart way to break in a guy... don't over expose..
  11. His stuff is filthy... most think he is going to end up as a closer.. I would use him as an "opener" like TB does with their guys.. 2-3 innings and once through the lineup... if he looks decent expand his innings 3-4... 4-5... 5-6... slow but sure. Get him up ...
  12. Looking at the depth charts of all the teams in both leagues I am feeling MUCH better! There are a couple of elite staffs but after that .... everyone is pretty much in the same boat... Still I think we need to get something done but as is we are as good as 2/3 of the league....
  13. We could all swallow just a little puke and get Trevor Bauer fairly cheap I would guess... may be suspended for a while but is an ace when on the bump... odd and just a bit off but... darn good.
  14. Tampa is ALWAYS looking to trade but be careful they always seem to fleece teams... they always seem to have good pitching but not sure I would want any of their rotation at this point....
