  1. I think we both agree Brady shouldn't be picking who we sign. As for Mike Wright, it's possible to be an elite athlete and a poor Major League pitcher That's fair, I can accept that answer. I do think Elias has the ability to stop him from overstepping his bounds though I think there's as much evidence Brady is good at nutrition/conditioning as anyone else in such a role in MLB. Players have raved about him and the guy seems to know his stuff. I mean, if Elias has someone he'd rather have in that role I have no problem with that. I'd just hate to see us lose a guy who's good at his job because he's a symbol of the old regime--a regime that clearly isn't running the show anymore
  2. Does anyone really have a problem with Brady being in charge of strength and conditioning as long as that's all he does? Dude is a physical specimen
  3. These cameras and analytics sound awesome, but I don't think you can just get rid of traditional scouts entirely without paying some kind of price
  4. Couldn't most service time gaming be solved by declaring players free agents after 6 or 7 years of service time instead of the 6.190 or whatever it currently takes? There'd at least be no more three weeks in April when you belong in the majors
  5. T.J. MacFarland was also a rule 5, IIRC
  6. I mean, he made the play, let's not beat him up too much
  7. Yeah, but I suspect Mancini's true talent level is a bit better than that and there's a tiny chance it's much better than that. Trumbo will likely decline a bit given his age and there's a small chance he falls off a cliff with regards to his production
  8. I honestly don't know. I just said it wouldn't surprise me if those couple extra innings mattered more than the couple extra bits of footage/data
  9. Can't say I'm an expert, but the whole "hide your starters" thing seems silly. There's probably hundreds of hours of footage already available on most of these guys. What difference does a few more make? It wouldn't shock me if the lack of reps is more damaging although it probably doesn't matter much either way
  10. I'd like to hear Manny elaborate on what he means by, "The Orioles didn't do anything for him." I'll bet he turns into a stuttering mess. Maybe the Dodgers treated him better, but I highly doubt the Orioles did NOTHING for him
  11. Well if you want to be pedantic about it, I'd still love to have a clubhouse full of guys who slash .282/.335/.487 and play excellent defense but not quite good enough to win an award based on opinion instead of pure merit. They're still winning the World Series
  12. If they're all Manny Machado caliber players then I don't care. That team would probably set the all-time win record and win the World Series
  13. I would love to have a clubhouse full of guys who bat .300/.350/.500 with Gold Glove defense
  14. Whether or not he ends up earning it, he's exactly the type of player you risk $300M on. Given that the best may be yet to come, I voted yes, but it's close
  15. There were the "Mauer with power" comps, which if he hit like Joe Mauer but averaged 25HR a year for a decade-plus would be a HoF career. But yeah, I don't remember anyone saying he was a surefire hall of famer. Even the dumbest talking heads of the hype machine don't get that hyperbolic. No one is a surefire hall of famer at draft time
