    Why Preller >>> Hahn

    Quintana's only gone downhill since the trade. Regardless of what happens to Cease I think we will win that trade by a large margin as long as Eloy meets his projection. The Cubs definitely did not get the value they were looking for when they made that trade.
  2. Bryce isn't happening. I don't think we can outbid the Phillies. I also don't think he wants to come here unless we beat the next highest offer by a substantial amount.
  3. I swear if this happens I'm not even gonna watch a single game on TV this year.
  4. Isn't CarGo one of KW's guys? He's available.
  5. Yay I guess we'll just get 5 Adam LaRoche type signings then.
  6. Manny's offensive numbers are going to dip in San Diego. Pretty much every player that goes there has had this happen to them. I would not be surprised to see him put up a .330 or .340 wOBA in 2019 with the Padres.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    The team is based in the third largest city in the country. Not fucking Des Moines, Iowa. It's so goddamn frustrating.

    Paying $60 million over 2 years to a guy who will be 35/36 is not fun. But that's what you gotta do now. You could also just front-load the contract so it doesn't become as big of a burden down the road. We tried to get cute and it backfired in our face. Now all we have to show for it is 2 1 win players we're paying $13 million for this year.

    The only way this can get worse is if Alex Call turns out to be a good major leaguer.

    I never want to wish badly on this franchise, but it needs a wake-up call. If that wake-up call is record-low attendance, then so be it.

    Money we could have just given to Manny. Their commitments alone this year are almost half of Manny's AAV.

    I can't believe we got fucked over by Preller twice in 3 years.

    Unless the numbers on this deal are insane, this is an absolutely massive failure on the part of the FO.

    Talk about a punch to the gut.
