Offseason Part 3 - Because Part 2 Was a Dud

Recommended Posts

I’d be all for Bellinger. It’s risky, but I’d rather have him than Kimbrel. Haniger would be a dream but that makes zero sense for SEA.

FWIW, this guy said earlier the trade was a "bad contract for a bad contract" and the team was a west coast team.  So....say hello to your new right fielder Wil Myers or Justin Upton.

Won’t be Upton as they have Iglesias as their closer.

Good call. Melancon is gone. Wil Myers?

This would have made sense had they signed Suzuki.

They have Suarez, Pagan and Pomeranz to close.

Outfield lost Pham, so the third starter out there would be Profar atm, or Hassell, then Grisham and Myers.

I know one of the guys who run that account and they’re thinking a Kimbrel for Bellinger swap. I don’t think they have any legit sources though.

I‘ll believe it when I see it, but if Hahn manages to get Bellinger for Kimbrel(even if it means eating his entire salary), I will found the church of Rick Hahn first thing tomorrow.

Yep, I bet it is Wil Myers...oh lord....not the ideal replacement.

 

Oh, Upton is even worse....<insert puke emoji>

isn't his defense really bad?  I'd be fine with an offensive guy like that in the 8 hole.. butttt if he has bad D, what's the point?

They would have to have a ton of belief in all their young outfielders producing and staying healthy…doesn’t make sense, although thry do have Winker, Kyle Lewis and Harold’s favorite Wisconsin kid, not to mention Taylor Trammell.  I would think Haniger would get some time at DG as well, plus they got Seager off the books finally.

Well, sockin literally told us what they’re referring to.  I don’t buy it though unless the Sox include prospects galore also.

I hadn’t gotten that far when I made the post and was just guessing who could fit the bill.  To be honest, Kimbrel for Bellinger seems so ridiculously one sided that I didn’t even fathom it being an option.

I thought someone said they heard the guy was referring to Bellinger?

Which is it?

He’s a bit below average but miles ahead of Vaughn/Sheets.

SF seems to make sense, Yazstremski?

Good thing we did this.  Conforto was waiting to sign until we made a new thread.

Little did we know that Conforto is actually texting Liam Hendriks asking how many pages we have on his thread, came away disappointed that he doesn’t have his own thread. That’s probably the main reason he hasn’t signed.

Bellinger is not a bad contract when nobody would be that shocked by another MVP year.

It's going to be a fun time around here when the Sox trade Kimbrel for Myers straight up, and then the Padres turn around and sign Conforto.

If nothing else, there are no Hector rumors to generate mass hysteria like the Manny thread/s.

Meyers has 2/40 left on his deal (far worse than Kimbrel's)... Can we also be getting a prospect/player back as well? if he is it? hmmm

I want Hassel if the Padres dump that contract on us

If we picked up Kimbrel’s option to flip him a bad contract then Hahn should relieved of his duties before Jerry can approve the trade.

Think it's 1/22 plus a 20 mil option or 1.5 buyout
