    Jameson Taillon traded to Yankees

    I don't want to lose Ben Bailey for some journeyman guy who would be the 25th man on the roster, or worse. I want to find out how good he is, and we'll have a better idea 9 months from now, if we have a minor league season.

    How much do we count on:

    I just hope they give Yermin a legitimate shot at the gig.

    Mets GM Jared Porter fired

    Didn't some well known actor do it? Brad Pitt?? Can't remember. Anyway, Porter hit the Self Destruct button. Couldn't stop. Maybe a psych major out there can explain it.
  4. and yet, no one here knows how good of a hitter we have in Yermin. If Sox had just given him a chance in 19-20, then we could evaluate the need for Cruz

    MLB issues threat to MiLB

    MLB and the Astros have been sued by one of their ex-affiliates. More to follow. Lawyers a-go-go.
  6. I still would like to sign Colome. Not much difference between the 2.

    Yoan fully recovered from Covid

    I think 2k5 had a senior moment.
  8. Right out of the Labor Union Handbook. Of course, under any scenario, some team will still be in last place every year.

    Who has she represented before?

    Oscar Colas declared free agent

    This is now a sexist comment.

    Right. And, we kept Kopech and Vaughn. Can't wait to see how good these guys are.

    You're correct. I just looked it up. Baseball encyclopedia says Sox paid him $100,000 that year, then cut him. Thanks.

    Nope. He pitched for Sox.
  15. You answered Part A, but ignored Part B.

    That was a quick $4 Million down the drain. I wonder which Sox front office genius pulled that trigger.
  17. I never understood exactly why Covid prevented international signings last July. But since it did, why doesn't it prevent signings next month, since the virus is still out there.

    Oscar Colas declared free agent

    Then everybody would be doing it.

    Cincinnati Reds Fire Sale Thread

    Same here. I wonder how much was paid to the guy who created the BA formula 150 years ago.

    Cincinnati Reds Fire Sale Thread

    Flash, I can tell you're a smart guy who knows baseball, but really...... Moose is well into his 30's, has four years to go on his contract at $14-$20MM per year, and he has been a free agent three count em three times since 2017, without an overwhelming demand for his services. Bluntly, he is overpaid, and he's getting older. His stats are mediocre. Why would you give up Madrigal for him?

    Grammar police will get you.

    You're still nuts. Madrigal for Moose? Are you serious? I feel like John McEnroe. Are you serious?

    Badler: Sox expected to sign Yoelki Cespedes

    Great question. Probably development. I always wondered what Sox could have received in a trade for Hansen after his one good year. There were rumors about Miami offering Yelich; I have no idea. Yelich was certainly on the block for prospects in those days.

    You're nuts. Cinci would jump on that like a tall dog.

    So you don't like non ex-players in the Front Office? You sound like Hawk. He fired everyone who wasn't an ex-player. And as a GM, Hawk was a great announcer. He was not very good as a GM. There are others, too. Conversely, there are many great Front Office execs who never played professionally. The Dodgers sure like their guy. Tampa has done well with non-jocks. Some people say Branch Rickey was successful.
