Moving on to the next domino, here's guesses at roles for Bundy on 2020 teams.

As #1 starter: Blue Jays

As #2 starter: Phillies, Brewers

As #3 starter: White Sox, Twins, Nationals

As #4 starter: Astros, Angels, Rangers, Braves, Cardinals

As CBT-friendly #4 starter: Red Sox

As #5 starter: Cubs   I don't really think this role exists anymore, but the Cubs have Darvish/Hendricks/Quintana/Lester and have been public about browsing for a 2nd Tier FA starter, so Bundy could be in their mix.

The incumbent 4th starters in Atlanta (Bryse Wilson or Kyle Wright assuming Newcomb is RP now), and the AL West (HOU Urquidy, LAA Sandoval, TEX Allard) are kind of an interesting basket of even-up scenarios with guys who can both pitch some 2020 innings and might be good in 2022 and beyond.

Additional evidence of the still lingering Jake Arrieta effect...i.e. Orioles screw them up, we can fix them.   You would have thought Kevin Gausman would have put a crimp in that...but, I guess not.   

I doubt it’s that.  Starting pitching that is above replacement level and is cheap is hard to find.  Bundy fits every teams budget.

And maybe...in the back of their mind somewhere, maybe just maybe  they can  fix that HR rate.  Arrieta was a lot cheaper than Bundy when we dealt him. But then Bundy is a much better pitcher than Arrieta was for us .

With higher and deeper fences he could easily have won 10-12 games and with a better pen I can see him winning14-15 games for a number of teams. He is a very underrated pitcher who will excel with the right team. Hopefully Elias won't give him away.

Any acquiring team will not even look at his win-loss record, virtually if not absolutely meaningless to player evaluation. 

The analysis goes way past that stuff now. A team could take a years worth of batted ball data and come up with an ERA estimate in their home park with their defense.

He should be popular. He’s the type of regular season guy that a lot of the big time clubs need. Steady, durable, will keep you in games, and eat innings. 

I know baseball has changed, but he’s similar to when we traded for Bud Norris. That return was Hoes, Hader, and a comp pick. We won’t get that, but I see Bundy getting moved.

    • Even though the 60'6" has remained the same since 1893, the distance between the average of pitchers' release points and home plate has decreased because pitchers have gotten, on average, taller and longer-limbed. And the decrease over the past, say, 50 years has been significant. (For the same reason, there's also been an effective increase in the height of the mound.) I've seen some estimates, but I can't recall them right now. Nonetheless, I think it's more likely that the effort to produce the same effect will be made by increasing the number of pitches thrown by a pitcher, for example by limiting the number of pitchers used in a game or the number of pitchers on the 26-man roster. Other sports have been much more willing to change basic rules to improve the game: pro football has moved the goalposts, changed the extra-point and kickoff rules, added overtime, and protected quarterbacks and receivers. Basketball introduced the 3-point field goal, widened the lanes and banned zone defenses. Leagues in other sports haven't held their rules as sacrosanct as MLB. It's not practical for them to change the size of their standardized playing surfaces. There have been some suggestions to raise the baskets, and there's been some experimentation with that. At least some of those showed a drop in outside shooting accuracy and an increase in rebounding and the proportion of scoring by big guys -- not the desired effect.
    • Or they need to run it again in 2 weeks!  Lol
    • https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/11/marlins-attempting-to-trade-jorge-alfaro.html Jorge Alfaro would be a good option.
    • They’re certainly both culpable. I just feel so bad for hitters, though. Their eyes are magnets for little specs of dirt floating around right before the pitch. 
    • Beats me, I dunno. It's my hope that teams get back to a slashing style of play...putting pressure on the defense, more balls in play.  I don't know what analytics and metrics would lead a team to believe that's a good idea but it's nice to think about.   It's the one reason I did like the runner on 2nd to start extra innings.  Forced teams to play small ball, move a runner over, etc.  
    • Sure..but there isn’t a magic button that gets pushed when it’s time to contend.  Just because you want to doesn’t mean you will. So, there is no magic formula on when you contend.  However, learning to win, learning from vets, etc…that is important.  That is needed.  The right players can help with that right now. This is why what I have an issue with.  Some of you feel that just because guys are brought up, that it means we are contenders.  It’s not going to work like that, at least it’s not likely that it will. And then what happens when guys struggle, ala 2021.  Do you just keep pushing things back?  At what point do you say enough is enough? Im There now.  2021 was the year I expected to see real progress but then covid hit and that hurt a team like the Os, perhaps more than most teams.  So, I pushed it back to 2022.  There is no money on the roster.  You have Grayson and Adley, amongst others coming up.  You have trade options and FA that can help the team and not break the bank long term.     I don’t agree with it at all but I can understand why some want to wait.  What I don’t get is why people get all up in arms about those that don’t want to wait and then also say signing guys now ruin anything.  When people say that, it makes me think they either don’t understand what is being done here, don’t understand finances or they don’t believe in the players that are in the organization now.
