  1. lol imagine thinking you have to make a post like this. Like there’s real credibility attached to any of this sports stuff. Like people are actually let down 😂It’s sports, nobody really cares deep down about any of it 😂
  2. This is really funny to imagine. And then to prevent Ohtani from confirming his real destination in interviews, all these fake Ohtani impersonators appear for each team, each excited to get going in spring training.
  3. Just curious. If we added Mayo & Kjerstad do we then have like 6 top 100 guys and maybe 4 top 50s? Thats gotta be close to the top system then no?
  4. There’s a path to have a pretty bad ass offense though, probably as soon as next year. Mayo & Kjerstad for Cease maybe puts us at least a top 15 offense immediately. I’m probably watching and interested at the very least.
  5. Maybe the goal shouldn’t even be to win the World Series, ever. We’re so lucky to be in a division where nobody really spends. It happens sometimes with the Tigers, but generally, it’s a cheap division. We don’t have to overcome a powerhouse. The bar for sustained success in the AL Central is to develop players consistently. That’s it. We do that worse than the others and use money to bridge that gap, and still lose. All we have to do is develop as good and then spend a little more and it’s ours. Every year. f***. Why can’t we dominate this b****
  6. I took the All-in comment to be a direct jab. “You were all in man!” Wasnt 2011 our “All in.” Failure?
  7. Is it crazy I love the Getz hire now. Doing a total 180 after his interview with Peavy last night. Funny dig at KW. This dude is actually solid and well-spoken.
  8. I forgot about the JFP—>JFP evolution. That s%*# sucked
  9. I completely agree but it’s weird. 0 WAR power has a value. I have no idea what it is but it exists. The proof is the Sox have been signing 0 WAR power almost exclusively for what seems like decades now. There is a market. Maybe a Major League Baseball is just that hard to hit
  10. Why Ike! Whatever will we do without this horrible baseball player?
  11. Totally. Would love to see that analysis too. But you figure if you’re trading good players always at the 2-years-left mark, you’re going to get back some amount more than 1. Trading 2 years for 12 or 18 years probably needs to be the way. If you’re scouting we’ll, doesn’t that have to eventually lead to overflowing surplus? And then since we actually aren’t the Rays…we can fill plenty of holes with money in ways they can’t. But this rewarding our young prospects with $50M can’t happen. Gotta keep them hungry, gotta stay shrewd. And why the hell don’t we just offer triple the salaries for smart exec guys? Money talks. Let’s poach
  12. This is where you go full Rays. Gotta trade him for 3-4 SP on the cusp and 2 years away. It opens a huge hole but we need guys knocking on the door consistently. Keep trading them when they have about 2 years left.
  13. Cease is like 2 years for 20M or so. And a team will get his ages 28-29 seasons. I don’t think this is the comp you think it is.
  14. If Getz wants to create a novel way to pitch 1400+ innings then be my guest. Having Eder up for 100 of them is fine. But you can’t have 14 guys throw 100 IP. Sign Bauer and let him and Cease log more. The rest by committee. I’d actually be interested in that.
  15. I have almost no interest in baseball anymore. Like zero. This playoffs all I’ve seen is Bryce Harper talking about getting chills playing for Phillies fans. That was cool and really honest. What could have been. Haven’t watched any games though at all this year. Did TLR kill it for me? I don’t even know. All I know is I don’t care. Colson is exciting. That seems to be my only interest point. Maybe just wash the decks and start over with him and Robert? Again, I’m probably just going to check in passively going forward. Really weird considering my history but I have no regrets tuning it all out. It just happened somehow.
  16. If Carolina is really the worst and we get the #1 pick, I love the idea of trading it down a few slots to whoever Poles thinks will have the worst record NEXT year. The opportunity to rinse and repeat for as many years as we can sounds tasty. Keep stacking the trenches. It’ll pay off
  17. If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the decades it’s to trade durable starting pitchers for second basemen
  18. We have 3 players. Robert, Colson and Cease. did I miss anybody?
  19. If you know you know. If you don’t know, then enjoy this giant middle finger from Trevor Bauer and all things good in the world. Hell yea. So sorry that happened to him.
  20. Lol team speed. We had like 2 good players and he was one of them 🤷
  21. Still think it should be Corlas. Maybe they’re having issues with agreeing on a pronunciation? He thinks he’s compromising saying “ok fine call me cor-LAHSS” and Getz is like “na dude; it’s CORE-liss.” Actually applaud the new GM here if that’s the case
  22. Probably a couple years from now.
  23. Can’t stop laughing at how inappropriate and forced this is. I love it more ever time I read it man thanks 😂
