  1. If we offered the Ducks a Chris Davis for Lew Ford and a small bag of baseballs trade, and offered to pay 99.999999% of the remaining contract to Davis, I'm still not sure if they would take us up on it.
  2. Maybe a minor league coach a few years down the road if he decides to walk that path. As a player? Agreed, not in a million years.
  3. Oh no! Not Straily, the soul of and the future of our franchise! I'm sorry guys. I'm trying, but I think I've run out of sarcasm.
  4. I still expect to keep Mancini. We are not forced to move him, so I think another team is going to have to overpay significantly to get him, and I don't see anyone out there likely to do so before the deadline rolls by.
  5. From the MLB rules glossary (italics emphasis mine): Win (W) Definition A pitcher receives a win when he is the pitcher of record when his team takes the lead for good -- with a couple rare exceptions. First, a starting pitcher must pitch at least five innings (in a traditional game of nine innings or longer) to qualify for the win. If he does not, the official scorer awards the win to the most effective relief pitcher. There is also a rarely used clause where an official scorer can deem a relief pitcher's appearance "brief and ineffective." (For example, if a reliever relinquished a one-run lead by allowing three runs, but was still in line for a win after his team scored four runs in the following inning -- that may qualify.) If that's the case, the scorer can award the win to a pitcher who followed that "brief and ineffective" pitcher. Which relief pitcher earns the win specifically is also up to the judgment of the official scorer.
  6. Also how worthless official scorers can be... they have leeway under the rules to give the win to another, deserving pitcher if the guy who letter-of-the-law "earned" it was flat out terrible.
  7. What a strange season. These guys are setting various weird records all over the place, and in the end, they will be a 50ish win team.
  8. If Mancini isn't bringing back what's needed to trade him, I'm fine with keeping him. It's win-win either way.
  9. On a side note, may I say how nice it is to see us hit a pitcher we just traded away for once? I know it doesn't come up much, but in my memory historically if we trade a pitcher and then run into him within a couple of weeks, he owns us. I'm like, why? It's not like you don't know exactly what he does and how he does it. And he hasn't been gone long enough to have picked up mysterious new tricks.

    I don't know why, but I was expecting this to be a sarcasm-laced thread about Broxton when I opened it.
  11. Some of them never fell and are still orbiting Earth today.
  12. Ah yes, right on schedule. The mandatory all-star break-ish "let's cut our Rule 5 guys for some contrived reason instead of keeping them on the team for two more months during a pointless losing season" thread. You know, if a another week had passed without this being posted, I might have become worried.
  13. That's what I'm talking about. It's time to start clearing roster spots for them to play. You can't look at this 25-man at the MLB level and not see several guys that could be trimmed right off to make room.
  14. Agree with you there. That's part of the construction, and indeed, we've been lax there. I'm hoping that starts to change a bit in the second half. We have a few guys that don't have service clock concerns that we need to be looking at.
