    Tanner Scott Prefers the Bullpen

  4. This is the part that bothers me: Even if Buck wasn't big on analytics, isn't the department being small still on Dan? Aren't analytics used in a lot of ways that go beyond managerial decisions?

    Duquette is expected to be fired

    I don't think Duquette was the very best option, but there are probably a few who are better and a ton who are a lot worse. I would've been comfortable sticking with him.

    Bundy is Broken

    Ben McDonald ended up with 20 WAR. Bundy is at 4 WAR now... I would be thrilled if he ended up anywhere near 20.

    Updated prospect list

    Fangraphs has Cumberland a lot higher than everyone else does. In their top 100, and listed as the top return from the Gausman deal. Also has Encarnacion over Tate. https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/ranking-the-prospects-traded-at-the-deadline-2/
