  1. I think he is going to have the same issues as Moncada did last year. he is so selective that it makes him too passive. It works in the minors but not the majors. He is going to need to learn to be selective but more aggressive as Moncada seems to have learned.

    They rebuild didn't start until they traded away sale. up to that point it was just trying to fill in around what players they had.

    don't start that optimism stuff. When players slump or get hurt they never return to form.
  4. He didn't have a history of injury. And do you know what the number variable (as small as it is) to getting injured? a previous injury.
  5. not alluding to luck at all. I'm talking about not faulting the FO on an injured draft pick. Many people have tried over the years to predict injuries. There will never be any hard rules because people are different anatomically. We all have certain things to look at and have our biases. Like mine with Rodon. I said they day they drafted him and I watched his motion that i didn't like his follow through and it would lead to problems. However, others have used it and not had problems. We can narrow it down to a few things but it will never be a strong causation/correlation. People will continue to look for the magic formula because it will make them rich in sports.

    I dont think they will get 2 starting pitchers. They have Giolito, kopech, cease and 1 fa with Lopez as #5 until dunning is ready for his shot.

    I may not be good at math but he got 300 and the sox offered 290, how is that 50 short?
  9. There's that magic injury prediction device again.

    I thought the comment was they would need the money to sign their own, like this case.

    Should they call Nick Madrigal up?

    Agreed. He will see at least some time there this year.

    Disco Demolition Review...

    I loved that old stadium. This promotion may have gone wrong but it was still a better idea than his "free vasectomy night" he had when he was in St.Paul.

    Rockies sign Yonder Alonso

    Look at some of the CEOs who get 10s of millions bonuses while the companies lose money. I think they are in the same category and they dont have people live and on chat boards calling them names.
