    Almost certainly a rental, yes. But I'm not sure he's going to get 5/70 from anyone. Edit: I guess all that wishcasting is just another way of saying that as much as I love DJ, I'd rather see his bat at 2B instead of as a very poor man's version of John Olerud. I'd rather have someone who...

    Yeah, trade Voit unless by some miracle Stanton can regularly play LF moving forward. So yeah, trade Voit. I think they're going to sign a SS regardless. I'm not sure it has to be a big ticket name. It was a tongue-in-cheek comment, but I do think there a lot of ways Cashman could go...

    Close enough. Growing up, there were tons of guys that look like him hanging out on Long Beach Island every summer. Mostly from New York, but plenty of locals too. He has a certain kind of athletic meathead Italian look. No hate or anything here though. The memories make me a little...

    That was an appropriate hold with an unfortunate result.

    Ridiculous fan take: after less than one game I'm hoping Cashman resigns Rizzo and trades Gleyber after the season. DJ can play 2B :p.

    I can't remember when I've seen a better throw. I'm sure I have, but damn was that good. Unfortunately.

    I don't even care, I just want to see Stanton in LF as much as possible. Get him productive or break him. I'm happy enough.
