  1. And this is the reason why I'd like to see us acquire pitching talent that's CLOSE to big-league ready. Less chance we can screw them up.
  2. If someone's willing to overpay, I'd listen on Givens.
  3. Yup. I think there's a better chance that someone might overpay for Brach right now. Brach is a great 8th inning guy that could really solidify the back end of a game.
  4. I believe Brooks started out as a second baseman and wound up at 3rd because of his ability to react. Brooks often said he didn't have a great arm, but he got rid of the ball quickly.
  5. Scouts aren't necessarily looking at results at this point. They want to make sure he's got his velocity and that he appears healthy. The ump looked like he missed a pitch or two as well.
  6. Yup. We will likely end up with Brady Anderson as our next VP of Ops/GM. I'm not sure if that's good or bad. Brady was a pretty good all-around player in his day. He also seems like a pretty sharp guy. I'm not sure how that translates into how he'd run a baseball team...especially one owned by Angelos.
  7. The hope is that we sell by 7/31. Then we hope that Ubaldo somehow throws 2 or 3 decent games in a row and we can move him in August. Same could be said for Miley.
  8. And the Nats just got their bullpen pieces in Doolittle and Madson. We need to be ready to go NOW!
  9. And, unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be an end in sight...at least on the pitching side of the slate.
  10. One could argue that you could trade Machado and Britton right now and get enough talent back to make us competitive next season with a few other signings.
  11. We don't NEED to trade with the Red Sox or Yankees. There are plenty of other teams in the hunt with talent in their systems.
  12. Ugh. When you put the truth out there, it makes me shake my head in disbelief.
  13. If you were Bishop, would you even WANT to deal with this organization?
  14. I don't think Buck calls games.
