    This too. I don't even get satisfaction when we get good Nova, I don't even care.

    This Alonso experiment needs to fucking end.

    Time for some changes, Rick

    Hansen will not be a starter next year, he will get time in the pen I guarentee that. Dunning will be available around ST next year, which means he'll throw in the minors for a few months and could be a pen arm mid summer. Burdi should be on the roster after ST next year.

    Speaking of bullpen, Tigers are now taking offers on closer Shane Greene. Hopefully we are taking offers on Colome as well.

    Dunning, Covey, Hansen, Burdi should all be in the pen next year I'd think. I mean, we have Fulmer too... ......

    Ozuna, Cole, Rendon would be my choices. If we get 1 of those 3 I would be pretty happy.

    After reading on him I changed my mind. I would hate that pick at #3. I just hope Adley some how falls to us.

    Moncada

    That would be ideal. Finding a slugging 3B is a lot easier than finding a power 2B.

    Moncada

    This is how I feel about the move to 3B. You are taking away the potential for a true power hitter at the corner and having a hopefully elite or top 3 hitting 2b. Nobody can change my mind on this. Madrigal would have to have an OBP of nearly 400 to be as valuable since he has no pop.

    Moncada

    Trying to determine a trajectory for Moncada at this point is a waste of time. He won't have the PAs to make a reasonable prediction until the end of the year. I've posted this several times but I fully believe he is much more valuable at 2B with his offensive potential.

    I don't know a lot about this stuff and have never really payed attention to it so forgive me, I'm just curious. Even if your contract was over with some Japanese team you would still fall under an international signing if you are under 25?

    You could just take a 3 or 4 year deal for example and come over after your international contract is up, no? Aren't they only allowed to post a certain amount of guys a year?

    Can somebody explain to me like I'm 5 how this would change the FA clock? Unless this means you come into the league from Japan or wherever at age 23,24,25 for your first MLB contract.

    I've seen this narrative several times posted on here and it's just simply not accurate. There was an MLB.com ranking that came out in June of 2017 that had him mid 30's low 40's and I think a Fangraphs one around the same time that had him lower 40s. You don't drop from there to off the prospect list in a month. I get he's probably a bust but at that time he was still considered a top prospect.

    That's literally wrong though. Unless you can provide proof that I have not seen. Every major site had him ranked there at the time of the trade.
