    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    What? for deGrom maybe, if they throw in Conforto.

    He gave us years of bad defense in those 29 games! 😁

    I can see how the Brewers would be attracted to a backend of Heuer-Williams-Hader. That would be pretty devastating.

    And I would add, that while the Brewers don't appear good enough on paper to compete with the Dodgers or Padres, you never know. Especially when you have players like Woodruff and Corbin who could make a dangerous 1-2 and Williams and Hader in the backend. They even have Yelich who can carry an offense. They are really one pitcher stepping up away from being really dangerous.

    That isn't what he was saying. He was saying you could get deGrom like production at 20% of the cost in Burnes. For the record, this is not me equating Burnes to deGrom.

    Just with Woodruff and Burnes in the rotation and Williams and Hader in the pen, that may be enough to give the Brewers a bit of an edge over the other teams in the NL central. I don't get why they would trade any of those guys for less than a king's ransom.

    Sox sign Hendriks: 3/$39M - 4th year optional with $15M buyout

    Yeah. Loved that. Thanks for sharing it. Makes me want to hold onto Heuer even more.

    DH Options

    The problem is that Moustakas' contract is terrible. It was ridiculously backloaded and goes 14-16-18-20 for the next 4 years, starting with this upcoming season. So, I assume the Reds would still have to kick in quite a bit of money to make that palatable.

    Hey! They should shoot for the moon. The dude almost had 5 hits last season! Edit *** this is true. He was 4/39 with 1 double.

    DH Options

    My main concern with La Stella is that he has never had more than 360 PA in a season. He has hit more than 6 HR once. He has hit more than 15 doubles once. And while he hasn't been bad against LHP, he has 249 career ABs against lefties. In 7 seasons. I know he has a lot of versatility, which is a huge plus. He walks a bit, which is good. Obviously I have no idea wh at he will cost, he may be pretty cheap. What are people thinking? 4 million? I haven't looked into any deeper stats, and I know he is a bit of a favorite around here, but can someone sell me on him. Can we expect a season more like 2019 as opposed to 2018? Why? Other than the walks, he looks similar to a less versatile version of Leury. If you normalize their careers by 162 games (which neither guy ever plays), their number (aside from walks) are pretty close. 19 2b, 4 3b, 9 HR 15 SB 21 BB for Leury (.257/.293/.360) and 22 2b, 1 3b, 9 HR 2 SB and 44 BB for La Stella (.274/.349/.405) . It obviously isn't a perfect comp, and I don't mean it to be one, but he seems like an odd guy to be the board favorite. If you could, please help me understand why he is that favorite.

    Yeah, this is where it is for me. Colome has been really good, and was really good for the Sox. Hendriks is the safer to be better in the future.

    I think they spent quite a bit last offseason, but maybe my memory is wrong.

    Sox sign Hendriks: 3/$39M - 4th year optional with $15M buyout

    I don't get this at all. He has never been anything but good in his career. Now, it is often more exciting than you'd like, and he isn't as flashy, but Colome produces. He has a sub-3 ERA in 8 seasons. The guy isn't a joke. He puts too many guys on base for comfort, but he is a good reliever and has been a good closer.

    Hahaha. So true. Especially if it is a game in June to the Cubs in a year where the Sox win the World Series with Hendriks pitching immaculately.
