  1. If we don't sign Manny, does that 35-50 million per year go back into the team or disappear?
  2. I have no idea what we should do with Manny because I have no idea what our financial limits are.
  3. Made up excuse: I'm on one of those emoticon free computers.
  4. Did it? Gausman's over-reliance on his fastball feels like an issue caused by him being put in high pressure situations where mistakes were too costly.
  5. Is desperation really a great reason to mess around with guys development?
  6. Gausman would be a disaster in Colorado. I can't believe they would give up anything of value for him.
  7. I wonder who was the highest rated played on this list (for that respective year) who was traded. Chris Sale last year had to be pretty high. Wil Myers after he won the AAA triple crown?
  8. Here is an explanation from the HM thread: The biggest fallers, as always, are the great players who are getting ever closer to the end of their contracts. Yes, every team in baseball would love to have Harper, Machado, or Donaldson on their roster, but all three are eligible for free agency after next season. And while teams would absolutely give significant packages of talent to get these guys for even a year and a half of performance, it’s difficult to get a team to surrender a player good enough to make this list for a guy who could leave after next year. Harper nearly made the list anyway, given how good he is and the value a team might place on getting him comfortable with their environment before free agency began. In the end, though, I couldn’t find anyone who would surrender the kinds of players who made the end of the list for a guy who could leave after 2018.
  9. Confirmed no Orioles. Entire list is at the bottom here: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/2017-trade-value-1-to-10/ No one who is signed only through 2018 made the list.
  10. It's the All STAR game, not the all WAR game amiright fellas?
  11. Is the difference between 2.5 and 1.5 years of manny really 40 spots?
  12. The Lame Stream (sports) Media is reporting our record under .500 but we are in first place is you subject the illegal wins from the other teams.
  13. Thread title gave me a damn heart attack.
  14. Was he? Career Fip above his ERA. Looking at his numbers I don't see why any stat people would be excited. 2012 was promising I suppose, but even then the walks were too high to expect any sustained success as a starter.
  15. Daniel Cabrera was not a saber darling. He never posted a FiP or xFip below 4, and was usually closer to 5.
