    Rodon and Mazara Non-Tendered

    Really wish it worked for Los. You could see it in fits and starts but it never came together. Hope he has a good career in the NL.

    Offseason Targets

    Gotta wonder if he'd take a cut-price deal to play for TLR again

    On September 23, 2017, Maxwell became the first MLB player to join other US athletes protesting racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem;[12] Maxwell placed his hand over his heart, and teammate Mark Canha stood next to Maxwell and put a hand on his shoulder in support.[13] Maxwell's actions came in response to President Donald Trump's comments that professional football franchise owners should fire players who knelt during the anthem. On Twitter and through his agent, Maxwell said his decision to kneel represented concern for racial injustice as well as freedom of speech and exercise of peaceful protest.[14] The Oakland Athletics immediately issued a statement saying the team "pride ourselves on being inclusive" and supports "players' constitutional rights and freedom of expression."[13] While supported by the A's, Maxwell's future career in the MLB was seen as impacted by the reaction to his kneeling.[15] He remained the only MLB player to protest by kneeling until 2020, when the league allowed for "Black Lives Matter" patches and organized league-wide kneeling for social justice in the aftermath of the nationwide protests of the death of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis.[16]

    I think this might change a lot of people's minds on how TLR will handle the clubhouse.

    Shifts could be endangered

    I could easily bunt to beat the shift 99/100 times. It's simple.

    I think you bisect the field and only allow a CF to cross beyond 2nd. For a lefty you could still have a SS as far as 2nd but no further until the ball crosses the plate.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    IF it's TLR then Jirschele should be the bench coach with a view to take over in 3-5 years.
  10. Ozzie quit on the team with 2 days remaining in the season. AJ Hinch allowed his team to cheat over multiple seasons and then engaged in a borderline conspiracy to keep it quiet.

    Crochet's arm fine

    I know you can't trust the kid with his health in a playoff game but he clearly felt he was fine. It was the right move to be cautious but can't help but think what if.
  12. We have dual potential double barrel action: AJ-AJ Cora-Cora
  13. Crochet may be the long man in the pen next year, depending on how the minor leagues look next year. Maybe late year call up to manage workload.
  14. Stoney said it sounds like Coop will be moved up in the org
