  1. I can envision Mullins having a role on a competitive team. Nunez and Sisco not so much. I think Nunez is moved in the offseason anyway
  2. I wonder if they believe Stewart is for real or think Diaz will be a better player, do they move Santander for a 3rd baseman or a shortstop? I also agree Nunez is likely dealt in the offseason, too many guys that need at bats and he's too streaky and doesn't have a position.
  3. I agree he was under win now instructions but that doesn't completely let him off the hook imo. It's the GMs job to sell a plan to ownership and a better plan would have been to sell those guys to extend the window then to go all in. But who knows what the conversations between Duquette and Angelos were like and I think Buck got to pick the guys he wanted to stay no questions asked. At any rate, I think Elias should look at what Cleveland is doing, they are competing and trading ML players for ML players to win now and prospects for the future. If teams want to avoid the tank/compete window cycle thats what they have to do imo.
  4. Don't be afraid to trade guys you can likely replace even when you're winning like the Rays do. Something Duquette never did when he could have sold high on Jim Johnson, Bud Norris, even Zach Britton
  5. Yeah true. I was just going off something Elias said earlier about it being a possibility. If it was me, I'd call him up and sign him to an extension immediately and forget about service time games.
  6. I think he's traded to one of the losers of the Realmuto sweepstakes this offseason. Plus if the team remains in playoff contention I think Adley gets a cup of coffee this year and is up next year in may anyway.
  7. How can you say they traded Bundy for next to nothing? We have no idea how the return has performed for the Orioles or will perform. If Mattson becomes a productive reliever and Bradish becomes part of a future Orioles rotation, thats a win not even counting the other two prospects they got. At the end of the day, Elias traded an average starter getting expensive (99 ERA+) for four prospects which is good for the rebuild. Not to mention he pretty much replaced Bundy's 2019 production with Tommy Milone for a minor league contract.
  8. Yeah seems odd they've handed Stewart the RF job when Santander got hurt and not even give Diaz a look
  9. Wonder if Bannon will get any looks at 2nd or 3rd this year. Nothing really to lose not like Bannon is a can't miss guy
  10. Hoping for Kremer as well. Would also be cool to have 3/5 of the rotation be "homegrown" with Means, Akin, and Kremer. Wojo can go to the pen if they want to keep giving Lopez starts.
  11. Wonder if Kremer takes his next turn in the rotation. Probably Eshelman tonight
  12. Cobb to the Yankees might make sense if they don't get Lynn. Success in the AL East and they might take his salary
  13. I'd argue if you can't eat salary and get a good prospect now, you simply dump his salary for nothing that way you can spend that in the offseason. Because I think in 2021 they'll be close but not quite competitive but close enough to bring in some free agents. Spend Cobb's money on a guy like Stroman or eat the money for prospects.
