    Coop'll Re-Fix Him - Zach Putnam

    Weird that Putnam seemingly never recovered from TJ...that’s pretty rare nowadays. Would be nice if he can get healthy and provide some useful innings again....obviously not even remotely counting on it

    Fantasy Baseball $ Keeper League (1st season)

    Send it to me too please, may be interested
  3. Sox need to get on the curve before they can get ahead, but yes, nice to see more effort

    What do you expect from Eloy in 2020?

    .280/.330/.520 with 40 hrs and 100 rbi I feel like that is pretty realistic and would be great production for us

    Kris Bryant loses grievance

    Yeah I get that he’s a cub and all, but the rules are clearly unfair for the players imo. I have no problem with Bryant fighting for $ from a billionaire owner. But the players did also approve the CBA so is what it is for now. Hopefully there will be a lot of changes coming up

    Seriously, who’s willing to ship me a 12 pack

    COVEY DFA-ed - Signed by TB

    Would love to look up a thread from 2 years ago...1/2 of this board had Covey penciled into the rotation for 5+ years

    While I agree that end of the day winning trumps all...BUT, what the Rays front office has done with their payroll is pretty amazing. Their scouting department probably deserves most of the credit, they are the kings of finding the most value other teams can’t. Wouldn’t shock me if this is another 1 of those cases. Of course they aren’t infallible either so this could easily blow up in their faces

    Definitely a puzzling trade...but Jose Martinez definitely seems like the type of guy that will go to the Rays and have a career year for no apparent reason. I fully expect .800+ OPS with 40 bombs...for $2 mil + 2 arb years after. It’s just what the Rays do, I’ve stopped questioning them

    I thought so too. He’s nowhere near dominant, but he’s been pretty consistently solid. K’s and swing and miss % took a pretty big dip last year, not sure if there’s more to it than we realize? Seems like most teams avoided him for some reason

    Rondon to Dbacks for pretty damn cheap. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/01/diamondbacks-sign-hector-rondon.html
  12. Sure...I was struggling more with the stud part lol
  13. I’m surprised it took this long for someone to point out how crazy it is to call Mazara a young stud

    Will Harris to Nats

    Guess I’m alone that I would have been happy with this deal. Sure, maybe the 3rd year would be a waste, but I think Harris will have excess value at 2/16. He’s been consistently getting it done for a long time, I see no obvious reasons that he will suddenly fall off.

    White Sox Sign Robert to Extension

    Sox are going to have 1 of the most exciting lineups in baseball on day 1 and are only going to add Madrigal shortly... Hahn and co actually proved us wrong. Good for them, I have no problem eating crow. A lot more left to do on the field of course.
