    What kind of deal do you guys think Bauer ultimately gets?

    This is exactly where I'm at.

    The Blake Snell Thread

    What do you guys think about Kopech, Stiever, and Dalquist for Snell? Would you guys make that trade? Would the Rays?

    Did we even know Masur wasn’t returning until now?

    Offseason Targets

    I’m starting to think an offseason of Joc, a couple of mid-tier starters (Quintana and Richards, for example), and a reliever (maybe Colome) is a likely outcome. I know most people would consider that a huge disappointment, but I wouldn’t hate it. We would be taking a 35-25 club, replacing EE and Mazara with Vaughn and Joc/Engel, adding some depth to the rotation, and giving Dunning, Cease, and Kopech a chance to develop/compete for a spot in the rotation. Look, I want Bauer or Springer as much as anyone, but if we don’t land one, it won’t be the end of the world like a lot of people here will make it out to be. It would also give us a lot of flexibility to add a starter at the trade deadline or next offseason.

    Yeah, I want Vaughn up as quickly as possible. Secure that extra year and get him up. After looking at the Springer vs Joc/Engel platoon stats, we could improve our lineup a lot with minimal spending just by replacing EE with Vaughn and Mazara with Joc/Engel. Then we’d have a lot of flexibility to attack starting pitching either now, at the trade deadline, or next year.

    We will be adding at least one, possibly two starting pitchers.

    Offseason Targets

    Good catch, and that makes it even better because now the PA’s are almost identical in the comparison. I’ll edit it. I originally had PA for Joc/Engel but AB for Springer accidentally.

    Offseason Targets

    Alright, I gave this an attempt using 2019 stats. Here is Springer vs platoon splits of Joc/Engel: Springer: 556 PA, 39 HR, 0.974 OPS, 156 wRC+ Joc/Engel: 553 PA, 38 HR, 0.907 OPS, 135 wRC+

    Offseason Targets

    Can someone who is better at finding advanced stats and splits better than I can do a comparison of what we can expect from a Joc/Engel platoon vs what we can expect from Springer for a 162 game season?

    The sad (but awesome) thing is that he's going to win a World Series before any of those three things happen.

    The Blake Snell Thread

    Obviously, but this isn't a debate on which approach to go with to maximize your chances. This is a debate that looks back on something that already happened (obviously hypothetical). After the fact, would you rather have 10 playoff appearances and no titles, or 1 playoff appearance and a World Series? I'm taking the World Series.

    The Blake Snell Thread

    It's an interesting debate. In the next 10 seasons, which would you rather have? A) 10 playoff appearances and no titles B) 1 playoff appearance that resulted in a World Series Give me the World Series all day.
  15. I agree that very well could have been what happened.
