  1. What about waiver trades?
  2. Cleveland most likely just lost Jose Ramirez for the remainder of the season. Would they have any interest in Nunez, I wonder? And what would a return look like? Cleveland is firmly in 'win-now' mode, and their window is closing rather quickly so there could be some sense of urgency there.
  3. I'm gonna go ahead and say it: Adam Hall is the starting second baseman on our next winning team. And if he turns out to be comparable to Trea Turner, it would be amazing. Turner has a fair amount of pop for a guy who can steal 40 bases a year when healthy.
  4. Nice post. I'd love to have him here.
  5. They must not like him out there very much.
  6. Sitting 96-97?! If so, that would be amazing. He usually sits 91-93, no? Anyone else see the game on Friday? Cuz if he can sit even 94-95, gotta think the ceiling is higher than a #3...
  7. Jean Carlos Encarnacion. A guy can dream, right?
  8. Yea I don’t think you really even think about a position change unless he turns out to have like a top 10 OPS in all of baseball, regardless of position, for multiple seasons. As Luke said, a huge amount of his value right now is tied to his position. If we’re having this conversation in 5 or 6 years, it would be an amazing outcome.
  9. Totally fair points all around. I suppose some playoff experience is better than none, albeit experience with much lower stakes.
  10. Agreed. Though some may be arguing that he wants to get guys experience in playoff situations, which is fine. But I don't think MiLB playoffs do much to prepare you for nationally televised MLB playoffs.
  11. Time to change his mechanics!
  12. I appreciate the effort to engage and educate the fans about how we value our players. It's such a welcome and stark contrast from Buck, Dan, et. al.
  13. He's gotta earn that one all over again
