  1. Thank you. Let’s not forget that Adam was one of the premiere Centerfielders in the league during his prime. I think there’s some recency bias occurring here.

    Postseason picks

    Astros v. Braves in the World Series
  3. Not really, aside from them both being infielders from Vanderbilt. Looks to me like Martin has significantly more bat speed. And in the infield, call me crazy, but he kind of moves like Jeter.
  4. Maddon will go to WhiteSox and replace Rick Renteria for a second time in the same city.
  5. What about waiver trades?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Nice post. I'd love to have him here.
  9. They must not like him out there very much.
  10. 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...
  11. Jean Carlos Encarnacion. A guy can dream, right?
  12. 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.
