  1. I think it clearly Mancini. Especially with the way the AS game went for him and it’s also a comeback year for him. I’d be very surprised if it were anyone else. Though Means and Villar would be solid choices if chosen.
  2. I agree...Ruiz is a good enough stopgap until either he proves himself or someone better comes along.
  3. The whole damn starting pitching staff needs to go with the exception of Means. Just start fresh and hope that Cobb comes back decently. Maybe keep Bundy since he isn’t worth anything in a trade and he’d be hard to cut. Brooks, Wojo, and whatever other random awful players have been thrown out there just need to go.
  4. He’s a fringe player on a competitive team but during a rebuild the home runs are nice. I’ll settle for his overall play while he’s cheap and the hope for more upside sticks around.
  5. I always liked Gausman. It’s a shame we didn’t get a chance to claim him and see if he could rebound here.
  6. I think Trumbo comes up to play DH for a few games before going back on the IL for the rest of the year.
  7. I’m no advocating for it, I’m just saying if anyone loses at bats I think it will be Ruiz. Correct me if I’m wrong but I think Ruiz has an option remaining so he could even be sent down temporarily to give Trumbo a little farewell to baseball tour. Not that anyone cares. If it were up to me he’d be released the moment he’s ready to play. But then again so would Davis if it was my choice
  8. I dunno, they won’t be taking at bats away from Núñez and we just saw him back in the field for a couple games. Ruiz could sit while Núñez plays third and Trumbo does DH.
  9. After the Cashner trade, I have adjusted my expectations in trades. Elias will not be doing anything that’ll make us feel excitement right now. It’ll be filling in the cracks of the foundation of the farm system and be mostly nothing. I completely expect the two players from the Cashner trade to pan out to be absolutely nothing. But at the time we want the optics of an active Dominican outreach and we will see him filling in the gaps with other teams nobodies. Givens will not net a top 100 prospect and IMO its highly unlikely we even get a top 10 prospect from another team. Elias has primed me for disappointment in the name of forward progress.

    Astros Designate AJ Reed

    He’d have been a nice pickup if there was anywhere to play him.
  11. We value Mancini more than any other franchise. I highly doubt we even get a single top 100 prospect for him. I say keep him so we’ve got something to cheer for on the field during the lean years. That is worth more than a couple AAAA players IMO
  12. He’s a placeholder til the Diaz/Hays/Stewart trio sort themselves out. I’m just glad it’s Smith and not Rickard.
  13. Sounds like the consensus is Frazier is too much to give up for Bundy anyways, which makes sense. My thought on it is if we’re trading Bundy, let’s be smarter about it and trade for an area of need. Not a whole lot to be excited about in the near future at 3B, SS, or 2B. Maybe target someone who can play there? But anyways, I’d totally flip him to someone else if the Yankees gave him up.
  14. Steve Wilkerson won’t be playing in the OF when the O’s are competitive again
  15. I guess it’s all about perspective. In a straight up trade Frazier will likely be a better player. But where do you play him? Everyone can’t DH or play 1B. The OF of the future will already have at least one bad defender, it’s counter productive to make it two. He is just so far away from a fit with this team that I really can’t see why anyone would be for it unless the point is to immediately flip him somewhere else.
