  1. Does Cashner require an MLB deal? Colon would at least draw some press.
  2. I like the Brady Rogers signing. Hasn't had a shot at a full workload since returning from surgery. Lots of AAA success. Probably has a shot at winning the #5 spot out of camp.
  3. That's what I was envisioning when Elias said one more MLB contract able to be offered. Do any of these pitching options need to be offered more to get them to sign? Be nice to grab one of McHugh or Walker. I wonder if Cashner takes a milb deal with $1mil salary if he makes the team? That was give us Means, Walker/McHugh, Cobb, Cashner, Wojo to start the season. That rotation might not be half bad if all goes well.
  4. Ahh, but no position player is unanimous
  5. If Elias says we have room for one more MLB contract, its gotta be a pitcher. Just too much uncertainty around every option. Worst case scenario, Means could be a fluke and go , Cobb gets hurt taking the mound in his first start, Wojo is AAAA starter, etc. Elias needs to get one some-what durable reliable starter. Below is who is left, who does he choose? Which are going to require an MLB contract? Cody Anderson Chad Bettis Clay Buchholz Trevor Cahill Andrew Cashner Jhoulys Chacin Wei-Yin Chen Marco Estrada Matt Harvey Jeremy Hellickson Derek Holland Edwin Jackson Shelby Miller JC Ramirez Clayton Richard Danny Salazar Aaron Sanchez Jason Vargas Taijuan Walker
  6. Maybe its a inside joke of the voters? Not to allow someone to be unanimous, maybe to keep alive the notion that you can't say that one particular player is the best player of all time and deserving of the unanimous vote. Kind of like saying "it don't matter if you're Jeter, Ripken, Maddux, or Griffey, if Aaron, Mantle, and Mays weren't unanimous, no one is unanimous.
  7. Diaz becoming a force would be nice. Some of the young pitchers out of Baumann, Wells. Lowther, Kremer, and Akin developing into real options would be nice. Bannon, McKenna, and Adam Hall are 3 that we will probably figure out this year as well
  8. The Pool of arms that will be considered for the rotations going into Opening Day are as follows Means, Cobb, Wojo, Bailey, Rucker, Akin, Stewart, Valdez, Hess, Zastryzny, Diplan. Is Chandler Sheppard or Ty Blach still in the organization? If they are, might as well throw their names in the mix. I'd have to guess at this point it will be Means, Cobb, Wojo, Stewart, and Akin. I think Bailey and Rucker are middle relief/openers.
  9. With is foreign playing days, he could be a guy kept on to coach or scout too.
  10. Just saw that Nick Margevicius was DFA'd by SD. Could be more rotation depth. 23 year old LHP who may have been rushed a little bit to the majors.
  11. Urena looks like he has shown a little pop throughout his stops in the minors, but nothing impressive above AA. Not a lot of OBP skills either. 23 is still young though. Seems toolsy.
  12. Oh he's a victim, no doubt, but how do criminals choose their victims?
  13. When things like this happen, I always wonder if the League knew what was going on, but turned their cheek because it was big market baseball and good for the money making. I felt this way when the steroid scandals happened too, and also when the NBA ref got caught trying to fix games. They just have to do a punishment for show. Technically these major sports leagues are "Entertainment Companies" anyway which creates a grey area for the "rules." I'm not saying its entertainment in the same capacity as WWE, but I think people get greedy and try to give the people what they want in order to make money.
  14. I think Mos Def said it best "This one goes to all them Big Will cats With ice on they limbs and big rims on they Ac You goin' around town with your system bump And your windows cracked low to profile and front Now I like to have nice things just like you But I'm from Brooklyn, certain shit you just don't do Like, high postin' when you far from home Or like, high postin' when you all alone Now, this would seem to be clear common sense But, cats be livin' off, sheer confidence"
