  1. Not sure what his ailment is Shewmake has been on IL in AAA for awhile. In any event, would imagine Baldwin gets a shot before Shewmake gets another.
  2. I think you can remove the probably and frankly the rest of the statement except complain and you’d be right 100% of the time.
  3. He’s played more MLB innings in CF than anywhere else combined including both OF spots, 3B and 2B.
  4. I would have been fine with Cags but using another top pick on a 1B would have been risky.
  5. Im personally not enamored with a guy that has 1.2 years of service already as a return for Crochet. I’d want both Dominguez and Jones to even get the Yanks to the table.
  6. $20M is an absolute bargain for Luis Robert. Stop this non sense.
  7. Difo? Gross. Just let Moncada play. Will be plenty of at bats for a guy like Baldwin once DeJong and Lopez are moved, even if Moncada is playing 3B most days.
  8. Very good sign for Kopech and the trade market in general
  9. Thankfully a lot of those "mid" guys either come with super cheap deals or some control, or both. I could truly see any of Banks, Brebbia, Flexen, Kopech, Soroka, DeJong, Lopez, AV, Pham and Sheets moved. Pham, Kopech, DeJong, AV, Brebbia and even Banks would/should all return something of interest, imo.
  10. Agreed. With a 1.5 years of control and an arm like that, you can get a pretty good prospect imo.
  11. This is absolutely unequivocally how Getz should handle those 2 players.
  12. While I don't disagree there is a fairly substantial talent difference between the two major league clubs at the moment, using Santana and Wallner as examples is pretty comical. Also lets maybe pump the brakes a tad on Lee, guy has 35 MLB plate appearances. He sure looks like he's going be a good player, but long way to go before calling him a perennial all star. Correa is indeed a great player though. Twins got lucky with how that FA pursuit played out. Still a decent bit of risk in that contract for the Twins who generally spend even less $ than the Sox, and Correa does get a hurt a lot and the ankle problem still exists.
  13. Soon enough. I know you have them both being DFA in August, but I doubt that. Would sure be nice if Eloy would give a parting gift and get red hot the next couple weeks...
  14. Moncada just doesn't matter any more. Its like having a $1 lottery ticket and not scratching it off because you don't think it'll cash out anything. Chances are remote that it will, but whats the harm? If he hurts himself pushing it too hard to come back, you're in the same spot you're in taking it easy with him. It really doesn't matter - he's gone after 2024 regardless.
