  1. Simmons' presence has moved Polanco to 2B where he fits much better defensively, and his comfort might be part of his great offense.
  2. Meanwhile Diamondbacks release Ryan Buchter, so he's probably coming here
  3. I would balance the schedule more. No more mirage that your organization is successful because they beat up on KC an Detroit 36 times per year then get exposed against NY. Yes every division has an also-ran but the Central seems to more often. No more champagne after clinching playoffs. Only for winning the pennant.
  4. I just don't think signing a SS is realistic with the Yankees and Dodgers in the market for 2 of them. Potentially the Cubs also, and I bet a team like Detroit gets in on a Baez. Go for Thor or at least pitching in general.
  5. It feels like they are trying to do something that no one else is really doing, and now the season is basically extended spring training so guys just keep coming in for a closer look.
  6. Miguel Rosas from Miami Marlins. It looks like he has a 2022 team option that kicks in by plate appearances, and anyone can be had from Miami.
  7. Bean5302 nailed it. Loved the game but it lacked balls in play. Balls in play bring out the action- defense, baserunning, strategy, etc. To be fair, what player wouldn't want to go up to bat in that game to try to crank one out into the corn.
  8. I don't know what I don't know with the FO. I hoped they had been aggressive in trying to move a Sano or Kepler for pitching last offseason, but I don't know that they tested the waters and didn't see anything worth pursuing. I also have no idea what kind of edicts if any are given to Rocco and crew on lineups, pitching changes etc. The FO is like a college football coach only approaching their own recruiting classes. I don't love the continued trial of other teams' 40 man refuse, but I assume that's only part of short term planning. They get more patience from me.
  9. They've invested a lot in Pineda from the initial injury recovery to sticking with him through his suspension. Maybe they have a good relationship with him and want him back and it wasn't worth disrupting that relationship for whatever the offers were.
  10. I think the Shoemaker leak was encouraged by the Twins to make teams think that the Twins Way is the problem
  11. These are tough players to evaluate. I think Berrios and his agent think he's a number 1, we generally think a 2. But we finally have a 2. And its hard to get a FA to come here, and a 27 year old 2 could still have a couple dominant seasons. So is that a 150 million dollar pitcher? I guess. Should they be fired if someone else goes 6 years 180? Probably not. I think they're tired of the Buxton injuries and kind of hope he walks.
  12. Good proposals. I hope the returns are generally pitching heavy though, like the Cruz deal.
  13. Crossover potential with '... of the Galaxy.' Groot can be the mascot.
