I missed the James McCann stuff, but it seemed to be hinted that they expected him to be gone.

Hahn sung his praises but it didn't sound like he was optimistic that he would be back.  Said they would continue to make it clear how much the appreciate him.

Good:

  1. Crotchet 100% healthy
  2. Ricky is being fired
  3. ”Team will be aggressive coming off playoff appearance”

Bad:

  1. Crotchet needs TJS
  2. Ricky is being extended
  3. ”Team will need to be conservative in wake of COVID”

Good:

      ✔️ Crotchet 100% healthy

      ✔️ Ricky is being fired

        ”Team will be aggressive coming off playoff appearance”

The first two were the ones I really cared about but for 3 we did get some answers in both directions, will be interesting to see what happens this offseason.

Kopech has been connected with MiLB coaches to work on his program going forward.  Has stayed connected to team, even recommending a hire for the team who had been let go by another organization.  Will be tough to over come missing two years, and building up going forward, but no question he is a part of the team going forward.

Kopech has been on a throwing program all winter and has been in contact with coaches and staff.  Hahn said zero mystery with him.

Crochet immediate futures is still TBD in terms of going to minors to work as a starter, or join team as a reliever.  Does think long terms is a starter.

Absence of a minor league season does make it harder to project Vaughn going forward.

Honestly, with like a month of pro ball under his belt, I wouldn't be shocked if they signed a DH to a one year deal. Or a guy, for example, Brantly or Brent Gardner if his option is declined, to DH and play some LF.

Crochet may be the long man in the pen next year, depending on how the minor leagues look next year.  Maybe late year call up to manage workload.

Could use Crochet as a multi inning reliver going forward to build innings, if a MiLB season does happen, could use him as a starter there and then eventually back to Chicago to manage workload.  Does call him a potential impactful starter.

Yep got the feeling he will be our Hader from a few years ago the next few seasons

Hahn sounds like he already hired a new manager. The way he’s speaking is just way too open for him.

No MGR hiring timeline.  Currently vetting their list.  Might need to wait to talk to potential candidates who could be busy right now.

Hahn says a manager that can speak Spanish is important, but not essential.

Brantley + a RF acquisition would be ideal.

Yeah...I was actually trying to point out that experienced managers are not going to be saddled with existing coaches.  Girardi was a poor example but given that the Phillies have a new GM...you never know.  Since we now know that Coop is out...the point is moot.

I follow now, got it
