    Gio Gonzalez

    I don’t get the Nova move whatsoever, unless Cooper has identified an arsenal change that will greatly improve his production. Right now, he looks a back of the rotation innings eater with little to no trade value potential. I would have much rather gambled on someone with some level of upside or just given a younger arm (like Bañuelos) a shot at the #5 spot.

    Zack Collins at First Base

    At a very minimum, he seems like he has a decent shot of being a solid weak side of a catching platoon, which is why I’m surprised Caulfield is hating on him so much.

    I don’t understand your disdain for Zavala, seems like he made some serious progress defensively last year.

    Wow, step your troll game up bro.

    Gomez: Sox, Eloy nearing $100 million extension

    Sure, but not if it requires us guaranteeing him best player in baseball money those first seven years.

    Gomez: Sox, Eloy nearing $100 million extension

    I laid it for several stars and them going through the arbitration process resulted in between $50M to $60 in earnings over seven years. $100M for eight seasons would be crazy IMO and an unprecedented extension.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    I’m in 100% agreement. I’m not a huge fan of Hahn at the moment, but he did add a substantial amount of high-end talent with his big three trades (which he should have given the assets being traded). The problem is we’ve failed to supplement that much via the draft and that’s downright inexcusable IMO. Most rankings have only have two or three of our top 10 prospects being draft picks, which is pretty damn nuts. Only one of those guys is a legit 100 prospect, which is also pretty pathetic. A big part of that is playing it way too safe with our high picks. Hostetler has actually had some nice mid & late round finds, but he needs to start prioritizing ceiling much more at the top of the draft in the future and that means seriously considering high school talents. If Adley & Vaughn are off the table at #3 in this next draft and we pass on Witt or Abrams for a safe college pick (I know a lot can change between now and June), I’ll be beyond livid. That being said, I’m fairly optimistic after last year’s draft where we took three HS kids in the first 11 rounds, that our willingness to take HS is finally changing for the better.

    The Case for Dalllas Keuchel

    Also, with Dunning likely needing TJS, the need to add a veteran pitcher prior to the 2020 season becomes vitally important. That being said, there will be a ton of options comparable to Dallas if not better next offseason. These include: Chris Sale (31) - 6.5/7.7/4.9 Gerritt Gole (29) - 6.3/3.1/2.6 Justin Verlander (37) - 6.8/4.1/5.2 Madison Bumgarner (30) - 1.7/1.4/4.9 Rick Porcello (31) - 2.7/2.1/5.2 Zack Wheeler (29) - 4.1/0.3/2.6* Alex Wood (29) - 2.6/3.5/1.3 Michael Wacha (28) - 0.8/3.2/1.9 Dallas Keuchel (32) - 3.6/2.4/2.6 Admittedly, outside of the top 3, a lot of these guys have question marks. That being said, all five of the other guys have put up a 3 win in the past three years, are younger than Dallas, and potentially won’t cost a draft pick or at least one as high as this year’s pick. With 2019 being a lost season, waiting is the still the best course of action.

    The Case for Dalllas Keuchel

    We should not be signing any free agents that cost us draft picks now that we’ve missed on Machado & Harper.
  10. I hope Hill gets banned from the NFL for life and actually serves some time. And for the love of god Chiefs, do not give this scumbag that an extension until/if he’s in the clear on this shit.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    I’ll give you credit for providing examples, but how many of these picks are based on the benefit of hindsight vs. actually feeling conviction for taking them at that time?

    Wow, that’s awesome! Guardians of the Galaxy is easily the best Marvel series IMO.
  13. Would you mind elaborating on what he said? Nothing will give me the motivation to pound five beers than some good ole fashioned Rick Hahn speak.
  14. I think Ricky plans to bat our catchers high in the linuep. Castillo will likely bat 5th on most days and against LHP him or McCann will maybe even bat cleanup. Look at our options from the right side, it’s beyond pathetic.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    Are there specific HS guys they should have taken with those picks instead of the guys we should have selected? Instead of just whining about the approach, maybe cite some examples where we didn’t select the BPA and instead took a college player.

    Guess the Opening Day 25 Man

    I think that will be the primary lineup against RHP.

    He took a HS kid in the 4th round last year.

    Guess the Opening Day 25 Man

    Moncada will be batting 2nd against RHP this year.

    Guess the Opening Day 25 Man

    That looks spot-on to me. The only question at this point IMO is whether Guyer makes the roster or if they go with 8 pitchers.

    What are Archer or Greinke worth? deGrom/Thor?

    I still think two impact free agents is a possibility easily. I already ruled out Sale, Cole, & Bogaerts and probably Rendon too. But short-term money will not be a problem and guys like Verlander, Bumgarner, JDM, Goldschmidt, Grandal will happen. You keep talking like our plan is to rock a sub $100M payroll and that this extension that hasn’t even happened yet will someone prevent us from adding guys even though Eloy will be dirt cheap over the next few years regardless.

    What are Archer or Greinke worth? deGrom/Thor?

    Sure I’ll double down on that. And there was nothing sarcastic / hyperbolic about me moving to Nashville...it’s very likely happening in the next couple months.

    Yeah, End Game looks amazing. Can’t fucking wait.

    Now I’m actually convinced you’re just trolling.
