    Tanner Scott Prefers the Bullpen

    What's the thought on Scott here now (this post was made 5 months ago)? I tend to agree with this line of thinking and would imagine the new regime would, but I don't know nearly enough about Scott to know if it's viable.

    WaPo: Spin Rates and Buy In

    Yeah, to be fair, I figured this was probably the case, his FIP there isn't that impressive. Still, I would've liked to see Gausman under a more forward-thinking organization, like the one we should theoretically have under Elias. I don't know if Atlanta fits that bill or not, but the point remains, I would've liked to see him under a different regime and have gotten something more substantial or potentially far more substantial back for him.

    WaPo: Spin Rates and Buy In

    Still can't believe that *expletive* Gausman trade. Would've liked to see what a competent organization could've done with his value. Well, I guess we already saw some of that in Atlanta. What still pisses me off about the Duquette regime is how little value we got from Gausman, Arrieta, Eduardo Rodriguez, and Zach Davies. We actually produced a decent amount of pitching talent in those year but got so little from it. Inexcusable from a low-mid payroll franchise that by definition must punch above its weight.

    Brady clearly wants the OA on his side.
  5. Wow, this guy is less than 5 years older than me and went to a school right nearby from which I knew quite a few kids...kinda makes me wonder what I'm doing with my life.

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    Haha indeed. Is it a good enough return in general though? Better than a D or a C?

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    Even if they spend it on Víctor Víctor, is it even a good enough return?

    Grade the Gausman Deal

    This one's pretty clearly an F, isn't it? Not sure what we were doing. Baffling especially because the returns for Machado and Britton were quite good compared to what could be expected, IMO.

    Luis Ortiz 2018

    Yeah, it was tongue and cheek. Mods can feel free to remove that part if they don't see any humor in it.

    Luis Ortiz 2018

    @Luke-OH You said you've been watching his starts closely, what did you take away from his start the other day (6 IP, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K)?

    Who stood out in July?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't see a Luis Ortiz thread. He had a good start the other day after a somewhat rough first start in the Orioles organization.

    The Victor Victor Mesa/Sandy Gaston thread

    So to save me reading 50 pages, is Victor Victor basically a foregone conclusion that he's signed?

    Grade the Schoop Deal

    The Machado and Britton deals seem like they were quite good; this and the Gausman deal look pretty bad to me.

    Extend Dan and Buck... Now

    Indeed, hence why it's not necessary for them to have ever "put a jock in". You could even argue it's an advantage.

    Extend Dan and Buck... Now

    Whether you like it or not, some of the best GMs currently and in the past years "have never put a jock on."
