  1. One of those hitting prospects is viewed fairly highly by a lot of people. The other has a chance to be an everyday type guy in a corner spot too. Smith has stuff also that can improve and has been on the up and up this past year with a great spin rate. Those 6 wildcards could present a legit piece or two as well. Im well aware of how they were viewed at the time.
  2. Look at the packages we got this deadline compared to what we got for those? I think this ones better...?
  3. I mean, the very top end were here but the main reason for being where we are is because of the depth of it. Most of that has been brought in via Elias, including some of the IFAs that are getting ready/already sprinkled in to that top 30. Our farm system hasn't been this filled with solid 40-45 guys in a long, long time. Not to mention it could be argued Elias got more for relievers/meh pieces this deadline than Duquette got for School, Machado, etc. Which is pure insanity. This is clearly a much better run team that has a deep farm system due to the guy currently here which speaks volumes considering how short his tenure has been already. We'll see if these guys work out/it continues, but we wouldn't be close to top 10 with the past regime these past couple years as far as farm ranking. Fairly confident in that
  4. Because they're not on the 60 man and with COVID they can't...
  5. He's only been year for a little under 2 years...how do you expect him to get top 100 prospects outside of the previous regime and 1st round picks that quick?
  6. I don't see them spending this off-season even if success continues this year. Gonna see what they have with the young guys the next couple years and reassess imo.
  7. TB is bringing guys up if they're ready and in a pennant race. Just because they have a great farm doesn't mean they rush guys just to do so. I said if a guy has shown he's clearly ready.
  8. Can of Corn on OH definitely knows how to property develop a player over the GM of a professional baseball organization who has been in the game for decades and been apart of some of the most successful "team builds" over the past couple decades. Don't challenge that.
  9. It's not what I would do, it's what literally all organizations do. If your competitive? You bring up guys that can help. If your not? You don't rush young guys because there's literally no net gain. Like..what? I don't think Elias brought the player around to "showcase" him if he thought it would hurt him or his development...no. Thats not how a guy who is trying to rebuild a team after just taking over recently works. But you go ahead and believe that.
  10. He's now a professional athlete in the baseball world. That's part of it, crazy I know....
  11. Because of the situation? Answer my question then... We're competitive 3 years from now, have a 19-20 year old that's crushing it at all levels. We're just going to let him rot down in the minors if he's showing he's ready? Optics man, if you seriously think how he's running a team during the beginning/during a complete rebuild when W/L don't matter will be the same when the team is going for a pennant... Like idk what to say.
  12. He literally just got drafted. It's hardly crazy to start a guy there right out of the draft regardless of where he's at development wise out of the gate and go from there.
  13. Ok? We're in a full rebuild. Of course he's not rushing Adley. Say 3 years from now we're competitive and we have a 20 yr old that's crushing it at every level. You think he's going to be the same way and not bringing him up til 23-24? I guess if you want to believe that... Optics is important here.
  14. Of course he has, why rush the clock when you're not competitive and have nothing to gain?
  15. Ok, regardless you can still see the quoted post while responding. The other poster literally did the exact thing I did but in the darker light. How he's running things when were in a complete rebuild with no reason to rush the young guys because we're not competitive? Not sure you can assume he'll be that way forever.
