    2021 BOLD predictions thread

    Crochet & Kopech are dubbed the "New Nasty Boys" by the national media by the All-Star Break. It'll be everywhere. Won't be able to escape it!

    Poll - predict the 2021 season records

    92 wins...edge Twins by 2 games for division...BP leads the way, alongside solid starting staff & timely hitting. Robert struggles early but he mashes in the 2nd half & Moncada vies for AL MVP. Lynn is only so-so, but he eats plenty of innings and keeps us in most games.

    Andrew Vaughn Hype Thread

    I'm confident Vaughn will sign an extension before the season kicks off. If offered, he'd be crazy not to. It'll happen.

    MLB 2020-21 off season catch all

    This may have already been discussed, but anyone interested in Mitch Moreland on a one-year deal? A much needed left handed bat...veteran... still has some pop (.894 OPS last year). Could probably get him cheap. DH against right handers, at least until Vaughn is fully ready...some power off the bench. Anyone?
  6. Agree 100%. Either pay a little extra now to fill some spots or retain your prime talent. But to refrain from spending now AND allowing our talent to exit in a few years would be inexcusable.

    Dodgers sign Bauer (3/102, opt-outs, 40-45-17)

    Of course he does.. Narcissism at its finest.

    Dodgers sign Bauer (3/102, opt-outs, 40-45-17)

    I'm OK not signing Bauer as long as we spread that money around to get a few players in some key areas of need...LOL.

    Sox resign Rodon 1 yr /3m official, Vargas DFA

    Agreed. They'll fight it out for that 5th spot. And pretty sure there'll be one more relatively significant addition. Also, Lambert (in The Athletic piece) sounds convinced he'll be in the mix, too. Probably not yet. Let them battle it out.

    German Marquez Thread

    Agreed. if you can get him now without giving up the big three, do it now. Don't wait until the price goes up & you half a half dozen other contenders circling at the deadline. I've had a feeling RH has one more significant deal left in him this off-season. Marquez has 3 years of club control remaining. Rick's type of guy...

    "... if Jerry is actually willing to spend at all." Sigh...

    Hector wrong. Again. - Cruz back with Min

    To be fair, he was hurt in his first start and was probably never right physically. In a full season, he probably isn't rushed back in a few weeks. Again, I'm fully aware of his limitations, but I think if healthy, he'll most likely give you 5-6 IP and allow a few runs. With our offense, we'll win most of those. Even last year we won 4 of his 7 starts, not including the disaster in his first start when he went down.

    Hector wrong. Again. - Cruz back with Min

    Don't get me wrong...I definitely want a SP addition before April. However,assuming there's no major regression in Lopez (hopefully, maybe even some progress gained with Katz), is starting the year with him in the 5th slot the worst thing? Granted, I'd rather push my luck with another option, but because JR isn't seemingly willing to do what seems obvious, I think we could be a lot more worse off, even for a true contender. I was mildly impressed with his 2020 return from injury. Mildly.
