  1. In somewhat of a back to the original post, what if the scrubs part ways with Maddon?

    The original post? Somehow this morphed into "what are your expectations for/during year three of the rebuild and (like nearly every thread) management sucks". Night all. I give up

    There is more in the article then I felt comfortable quoting since it is a pay site. I had a different take after reading the entirety of the article. Dang people sorry I tried to bring information to a year long discussion where most people are "reading between the lines" or "interpreting". Read it all before jumping to conclusions unless you are determined to keep your narratives. Are we league leaders, I doubt it, but I was happy to get some look at what they are doing and happy we are not ignoring technology. At the risk of copying to much another Gio quote I’m learning all this stuff from Has and Coop. Whereas maybe a couple years ago I would talk to (Danny) Farquhar, look things up on my own but I didn’t really know what I was looking at. Now it’s all in-house.”

    From today's Athletic article by Fegan. Mods delete if I copied to much but a very interesting read. I was impressed and sometimes people make assumptions without information, we all do. Most coaches don't become great or idiots overnight. Sometimes the talent you have to work with makes a difference also.

    You don't like the comparison? The teams are finally wising up to not paying for past performance on aging players. The vast majority of big money contracts were terrible for the teams. If you went with my proposal every player would be paid what they were worth/earned each year. Why can't they do that?

    Exactly. This is not an employer crushing an employee. The employees had representation. In an agreement both sides "exploit" the agreement to their advantage. The players signed off to what now in retrospect is an advantage for the owners. Teams that operate best within the rules of the system will have an advantage over those teams who don't. I am not pro owner. I am pro honoring your deal. MLB has the advantage of guaranteed contracts. Do any of these players give back the money when they do not perform to the level of their contract....of course not. I would actually like a system where players are totally(or mainly) rewarded for performance. All you would argue about is what portion of the pie goes to players and then let the players union figure out who gets what. That would actually be the most fair. The rookie who is great would be paid fairly. Have a floor for a guy who gets hurt but should any player in a truly fair system be paid massively for not playing? If you say it is because he has earned that by his past performance, in my system he would have been paid then when he deserved it. I get that there isn't a totally fair system for measuring defense, clubhouse, productive outs but with all the computers out there and the money we are talking about it could be done. It sure as hell would eliminate a lack of effort as you wouldn't get paid.

    Could add veteran LH bats who could be placeholders for a year: Calhoun Angels, Brett Gardner Yanks, Jay Bruce, Josh Reddick. Cameron Maybin or if looking for a reclamation project Lonnie Chisenhal

    In the previous nine appearances before that game, Foster had pitched 11.3 innings and given up two earned runs. 8h, 5w, 12k. Seems like right guy, right time but just didn't work. It happens.

    Kansas City Royals Sale

    Trying to return to the topic instead of the pissing contest, the most important thing about the Royals being sold for one billion dollars is how it impacts the Sox. You don't buy a franchise for that much money and not plan to spend money and be competitive. The Royals farm isn't terrible anymore and will be another team to compete with. Most have previously ignored them when considering our chances.
