    2020 Spring Training News, Rumors, Trades

    View: https://twitter.com/shaynarubin/status/1230882378869948417?s=21 not really news, just found it amusing. Hoping he turns it around this year. The Athletics winning that division would be a great story.

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    View: https://twitter.com/gdubcub/status/1228725220296364032?s=21 This has to affect the Astros ability to sign players, right? IDK how people could publicly(or even privately, Im sure the players talk to each other) criticize the players on the team and then play in the same clubhouse with them

    2021 and beyond

    Our farm needs to produce some major league talent in the next three years. We really need to get better at developing starting pitching internally. Hopefully Groome pans out and can be a 3/4 starter someday. If Dalbec hits consistently in the minors I think we should try and trade him for some...

    2019-20 Offseason Discussion

    Can we change it to "trust Chaim Bloom because he has demonstrated success on a team that consistently develops good teams and prospects on a budget 1/8 the size of the red sox?"

    2019-20 Offseason Discussion

    doesnt JBJ basically have the same trajectory? if we can dump JBJ's $11 mil and sign some rotation help, is it worth it?

    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    Nationals wont have the money for Mookie Betts. Eaton isnt a superstar but the Nats future hinges on Soto/Robles/Kieboom.

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    I dont understand why the Ddogers dont just throw in Jeter Downs? Isnt he blocked by Lux and the guy they got form the Angels?

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    if we keep mookie this year there is no chance we sign him in FA right? we are just pushing off the luxury tax reset to 2021? What would we even do with Pederson if we got him?

    Brusdar Graterol

    yea no reason to burn service time on the 2020 team. let him be a starter in AAA for a year

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    also seems like Bloom must really like graterol if he managed to wrangle the twins into a three team deal. Rays have been pretty good evaluators of pitching talent recently

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    so now we can start wishcasting about getting under the luxury tax and gong all in on mookie next year right? can verdugo play CF? 2021 rotation sale/erod/eovaldi/graterol/groome, starting OF Benintendi/Verdugo/Betts.

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    also twins have to be the favorite in that division. Brusdar probably needs another year in AAA so MAeda gives them a MLB pitcher now

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    twins moved him to the pen to bring hm up but i imagine we throw him in AAA and let him be a starter until he proves he cant hack it. with JDM probably gone after next season, we should have some money to spend next offseason. curious to see if we spend it

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    graterol has ceiling of good 1/2 starter and floor of backend reliever? guess we have to trust Bloom and his evaluation of ptchers?
  15. sean1562

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    Yea Maeda to the twins makes sense. But the twins wouldnt give up a top prospect for Maeda. one of their pitchers i guess?

    2019-20 Offseason News, Rumors, Trades

    Eh my experience living in Denver was that nobody really cared about the Rockies anyway. They are the 4th most popular team in that metro area. They actually have some great ticket deals that make gong to Rockies games pretty affordable which buys the owner some slack.

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    i think this is probably why Verdugo is such a big part of the trade package. He is Mookie's replacement and then we can spend some money on SP in a year or two. ERod is going to have to be re-signed at some point

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    I think the Cardinals have maxed out on their payroll for the year. I think there is some hope that Bader will turn it around and their top prospect is an OF.

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    I think they may have expected Benintendi to become more than a league average player. If Andrew replicates last season this season, is he really the long term answer in LF?
