    Wuhan Coronavirus

    Caulfield I still don't understand why everything is shut down. I mean here in the US we have flu season. A TON of people catch the flu and people with demanding jobs still have to work (and infect everybody). We seem to get through it and in the summer it burns away so to speak. You said businesses are going to fold there? The school can't pay you? What is going on? I see Italy is very paranoid about this if it's the right word. Tell us more Caulfield. How do people eat? I would guess the stores are closed and/or out of goods. Is it illegal to leave your house? Peace brother.

    So one quote, with John McDonough paraphrased and not even directly mentioned, is what you are basing this entire premise on? It’s amazing the lengths you will go to when trying to defend one of your “takes”

    26th Man Discussion

    I wonder if Gennett's medicals are keeping him from signing with anyone. At this point a minor league deal wouldn't be a terrible idea .
  7. I'd imagine that it either gets done or doesn't shortly before OD.

    https://www.dailyherald.com/sports/20200225/some-hawks-surprised-when-lehner-moved-out?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter Notice who Kane said he's going to talk to about the direction of the team this summer. Not Bowman, Not Colliton....McDonough. Straight from the horse's mouth. Stuff like this makes me believe that he's the one making the major decisions. I do wonder how much autonomy Bowman actually has. Rumblings have been around for years that all moves have to go through him, so that's probably why it took the Hawks so long to move some of their players over the years, as well as yesterday. I have a feeling that the Hawks are going to start to have similar problems to the Cubs under the Tribune Co. as long as McDonough is still employed. It's the same quote that @SoxAce posted.

    Very cool that MLBTradeRumors is citing @Y2Jimmy0 on this. There is some real smoke here despite how badly the Sox / Moncada want to downplay it for now.

    Please, state your evidence. And rumors from Twitter and HFBoards don’t count.

    FS: What's Driving Mercedes' Power?

    Again, you selectively picking players with similar statistics is not a “comparison”. It literally has no predictive ability or signal, thus is useless. The success or failure of those players (and others with very different stats) play no role in the future for Mercedes. You may personally believe it, but it doesn’t make it true. We can all data mine to find things to fit our narrative.

    I hope all of you people who want Bowman gone realize that if McDonough is still there, then nothing will change. The organizational rot begins and ends with him.

    I was referring to Burdi but I see your point about Herrera. Hopefully he improves because he isn’t going anywhere with his salary.

    He will be your 8 million dollar relief pitcher in mop up games. He was bad last year and it continues.

    I was poking fun at myself for overreacting. Didn't explain it well during the game. It was meant to be funny because I knew that it was ridiculous. Someone told me that self-deprecation is funny and endearing, so I tried to do it a little bit today. I always knew that it wasn't a rational thought. I thought that it was clear with my second post that it was intended to be funny.

    Hell of a game despite the loss. I'm probably one of the few that hopes Saad stays around. He'll frustrate you with his lack of finish, but he does sooo much good out there that it easily offsets that. Plus he's always been durable (minus this season and he'll still likely play 70 games). I've always been pro Saad... (barring someone overpaying to acquire him) Oh and St. Louis just helping out the Hawks future (draft). You love to see it.

  21. At least we don’t have to talk about that stuff anymore now that the new plan and direction are front and center
  22. Look at the body of work over those 6-7 years. Last offseason’s acquisitions outside of McCann were awful as well.

    FS: What's Driving Mercedes' Power?

    Yermin should have gotten a chance last year but they wasted those at bats on AJ Reed. I don’t see him getting a chance on this roster. The Sox would be doing him a favor by trading or releasing him but that wouldn’t make much sense for them to do.

    FS: What's Driving Mercedes' Power?

    I was responding specifically to how he has raked at Charlotte. Anyway, it is true he has generally hit well, but his numbers didn't truly get to these mashing-level values until the last year or two. I don't think you know what a straw man is. What I did was show you a list of examples of players whose numerical profiles at AAA for similar positions and ages are not encouraging. That is called comparison. And on the bolded, it was you who talked about him putting up big numbers. That is what I was responding to. Of course the opposite happens, in fact that makes the point more deeply. That numbers should only be a small part of the picture when evaluating likely future outcomes for prospects. Yermin is fine for what he is - the 5th catcher on the depth chart. Emergency depth in AAA with a small possibility of doing something meaningful in the majors value-wise. But the idea of him leaping over any of Grandal, McCann, Collins or Zavala, or any of the 1B/DH candidates either, is being way over-hyped here. It would be a mistake. Not because anyone has a 100% or 0% chance of being good, but because Mercedes' odds are far longer than those other players.
