    I get that it’s annoying to see, but we can’t think that picture means a lot while also dismissing the impact of the Alonso and Machado connection. I believe it’s irrelevant; whoever pays both players the most will get them.

    The difference between a 100 loss season and anything worth talking about is not Dallas Keuchel. It's development out of Giolito, Lopez, Rodon, and others.

    Just ask yourself what you'd want for Eloy in any potential trade. That is what the Reds and Reds fans would want for Senzel.

    Not really, but I bet you’d be excited.

    Dan Clark is such a fucking clown. I've never wanted someone to be more wrong in my entire life.

    I can't say how much I hate the idea of moving Moncada from position to position over and over right when his defense is starting to develop at the spot AND when what we really want him doing is developing as a hitter. I literally don't have the words for it. Yeah kid you need to cut the strikeouts, but here go spend your entire spring training learning a new position, and no one sees a problem with that? If Madrigal comes out and destroys our minor leagues this year I will understand one move, but we have a guy who needs a TON of work with his approach at the plate, and we want to casually ask him to learn a new position full time? That seems like a recipe for Moncada to just flop with the bat for another year and for us to be wondering what happened.

    I will be far less mad about moving Moncada next offseason if Madrigal has come out at WS and BHam and actually forced the issue with his bat. I promise. I don't care how developed he was supposed to be when he was drafted, one injury or a slow development of power and then we're talking about having to sign a 2nd baseman next offseason when the best FA on the market is a 3b.

    One thing Clark and others might be forgetting is that NY State income tax is 8.82% for an individual in Machado’s income bracket, plus there is a NY City income tax of 3.867%. Illinois State income tax is 4.95% and there is no Chicago City income tax. Thus, Machado would pay about $2.7M more per year in income tax playing in NY vs Chicago.

    I wonder, historically, how many examples he can give of players taking less money for this reason - especially in baseball. Basketball sure, where they've gone into superteam mode and the salary cap was rapidly going up - we saw Lebron and Durant do that, but I can remember few cases of it happening obviously in baseball.

    If you're trying for a 3B from the Reds, go for India. You'd actually be able to do a prospect swap instead of what Senzel would cost

    I really have zero interest in trading Rodon unless someone wants to act like he’s an ace. I’d probably do it for Senzel, but Reds don’t do that deal. Rodon still has the chance to be an absolute stud.

    Yet here you are posting about the team and giving them free space in your head.

    How much higher would've the Sox needed to go to get him away from the west coast?

    They are no different than any other business, they are not doing this for free,and you are correct that I chose to give them my support but I and we should expect the best product possible, which we have not received.

    http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/25658933/seattle-mariners-japanese-lefty-yusei-kikuchi-agree-four-year-deal I think Heyman was mistaken. Passan mentions no four year extension. He probably just misunderstood someone saying that when the player option is executed it’s a guaranteed 4 year contract, not an additional 4 years.

    Today would be a good day for Manny Machado to shock the country and all the rumors and announce he is signing with the Chicago White Sox.

    Jeez man have a drink lol. If we sign a whale it's just a bonus. If not we continue with the rebuild. I'll be a Sox fan until I die. Regardless of bad coaches, players, fo, or owners.

    Attack? You call that an "attack"? Do you ever read any of your own posts?

    Does he still throw it 40 feet above the first baseman’s head on throws to first?
