Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

Recommended Posts

So where do we go from here?  Cole/Strasburg is a pipe dream, so do we pivot to Ryu?  Maybe a Ryu/Keuchel combo?

Colossal failure.  If you're not going to get the guy, don't open your mouth.  Nobody would care about Wheeler if they weren't so obviously all-in on him.

 

Stop walking around smug with the "We'll show ya" mentality.

Who can we get for below market that no one else wants.  Hello Ivan Nova, MIchael Pineda and all of the other garbage.  Worse spin than turning on "news" channels these days

Whatever. 

Let's see who is available for pitching

 

Cole- LOL

Stras- LOL

Bum- wants 100m

Ryu- may get a bigger deal than thought, and a Boras client

Dallas- Probably our guy now but no one wanted him longer term

Since I have seen very little about them tied to Ryu, it would be nice to tie him up quickly without much word like they did with Grandal.

If MadBum will be going for over 100M...No thanks.

I’m the last person to defend the FO, but when did they say anything about Wheeler

King Fucking Felix back on the menu boys.

This isn't bad because Zack Wheeler is turning into Cole next year, it's bad because the rest of the options over the next 3 years are on a decline or have limited upside. Awful

I’ll be glad when Dallas Keuchel signs with another team so we don’t have to worry about the White Sox signing him. 

I can saw MadBum going to the twins or maybe the Padres. 
 

I don’t think we get anyone other than Ivan Nova again.

Ryu is a significantly better pitcher than Wheeler. Please sign him. Thanks.

He is better. BUT he can only pitch 120 innings.. I would be fine with Ryu.  3 years-50 million.

So unless we are targeting the top 2 SP... Which we aren't... Let's just create a monster offsensive squad and trade for JDM and Joc.... LOL, 

Monster offensive squad and monster bullpen.

Kind of agree. Go for Keuchel or Ryu and hope the in house starters bloom. Go Castellanos and JDM. Time to get creative.

I know some people don't want anything to do with Castellanos because of his defense and the Abreu deal, but I still like him and think he will improve defensively (like he has during his limited time in RF).

An offseason of Grandal, Ryu, and Castellanos would still be pretty solid.
