  1. SG is definitely NOT defending a low payroll, he is just stating a fact that there has been NO indication that Elias is going to spend this year to field a better product. That Elias is likely (IMO) at the mercy of John Angelos on payroll decisions, who has voiced the desire to move to Nashville in support of his wife's supposed country music career, and you have a team stuck in a cycle of another year like last year.
  2. Suzuki will get better offers than a month or two of ABs and then a guaranteed DFA I'm not sure that would be the case. I doubt AR catches over 100 games next year and Suzuki would be the OD starter for however long we need to wait to get the extra year. After that Suzuki would likely still get 1-2 starts per week.
  3. What about this guy? Could we stash him on IL all year? Red Sox: Thaddeus Ward, RHP (No. 20) Ward made only two Double-A starts before he needed Tommy John surgery this summer. The procedure is likely to force him out for much of 2022, and even then, he’ll be on a tight limit as he builds back to a starter’s workload. On paper, that might scare away Rule 5 teams and make Boston feel comfortable leaving Ward off the 40-man for now. But as noted, some clubs are willing to roll the dice on stashing injured pitchers on the IL and even carrying their Rule 5 status into a second season if need
  4. This. It makes me wonder if HH didn't agree with the input/direction he was getting on rehab and pitching repertoire?? Thinking no sinker-slider pitchers being developed indicates they have a "type" of pitcher they want to develop. Thinking of Matus before TTTP and 1st pitch strikes low and away. If he goes on to Jake A success level success doing it his own way.........
  5. I think he potentially "can" but I believe the question you are really asking is "will" he be as creative. Is he ready to move forward with FA acquisitions in 2022? That is the big?????
  6. The truly special ones just stand out, look different than everyone else on the field, see Mayo
  7. So Westburg is Best Athlete and Best Defensive Infielder but he gets moved to 2B over Henderson?? Seems illogical
  8. I'll take SG's 16 including Akin & Zimm for $15 M, keep Mancini and Santander for $10 M so 18 guys @ $25 M. I would add 2 SPs (E Rod, M Harvey) to eat innings with Means; 1 of Villar/Iggy/Galvis and an improved 3B (Harrison/Castro) for about $25 M so 22 guys @ $50 M. Deferred at $11 M and the last 4 at minimum so about $63 M for 26 guys.
  9. Doesn't he beat the ball into the ground at some absurd rate? With plus power shouldn't he be a candidate for a swing rebuild in the offseason? His D is a pleasure to watch.
  10. Wasn't his second flareup associated with getting the vaccination?
  11. I agree with the "loaded" observation but if we move from 50 to 80 wins a good number of those wins will come against those 4 teams because of unbalanced schedule. That said, we could spend $25 M next year (EdRod $15, 4-5 yrs, Harvey 2 M, about Castro 3B, $5 M, Iggy $2 M, new backup C) approach 65-70 wins and get a better understanding of what we have in Mullins, Means, Mancini, Mountcastle, maybe sell high midyear, and have a clearer picture of what we have in Mayo & Co, Kjerstad, Baumlier. We would still get another top 10 draft pick and could put a watchable product on the field. After
  12. Last off season Means, Harvey, and Zimmerman went to performance clinics. Is that something the team can pay for? I thought they did it on their own. After this season I would think Akin, Kremer, Lowther would consider going as well.
  13. Starlin Castro released by Nats, 31 yrs old FA coming off a $6M contract with domestic abuse charge hanging over his head. Former All Star, upgrade from Franco, don't see any details on the charge in a brief net search. He and EdRod maybe cost $20 M/yr and we save about $12 M next year on CD's prorated salary, so not much of a payroll increase but could address 2 big needs.
  14. If Rocker goes back to school and proves he is healthy, does he enter the BPA discussion again vs Green?
