Flaherty at 1B tonight, so....

Recommended Posts

According to this' date=' it seems like Pearce "volunteered" to go on the DL.

I wonder if he felt he might be on the chopping block?

Not chopping block I think. I only read this late tonight. It's sounds like was said, Pearce is a trooper. And he was really feeling this oblique.

What makes me buy into this is half a paragraph from this article...

Buck: "I know the way baseball works, the Yankee doctor has to come over and approve the injury today. I think it's theirs. If he sees what I know he's going to see, (Pearce) will take a train back and get an MRI on it."

Yeah, I overlooked that. When did that practice take place? The opposing team has to okay and injury for you to put someone on the DL?

I guess WC's thought about Flaherty being optioned for Gausman, didn't come true.

I guess you are right. I don't think any of us knew that Pearce was hurt. Buck said that they had another move ready before Pearce walked into his office and said he needed to go on the DL. I wonder what that move was.

I think Flaherty at first tells you all you need to know.

Rene had made the prediction that somebody was going to the DL. So give the man props.

My opinion, Parm or Reimold would have been DFA, again, just my opinion.

I never heard of it before. Is why it stood out so much to me.

    • If you think trading Villar for scraps is a good idea (which is the same thing as "cash dumping" Jim Johnson, btw), then non-tendering him really isn't a big leap from there and it likely has the same end result. My point in all of this has been that non-tendering Villar to save money isn't some preposterous outcome. It's very defensible, and it's possible that no other team wants to touch him at his arb-salary while giving up anything of potential future value in return.
    • I think Luke's pretty high on Cumberland.  But other than that I generally agree with your take.
    • Major leagues definitely needs the minor leagues.  Players don't go from college straight to MLB.  Scrimmages are not going to make you major league ready.  It would cost them even more money to have games without fans. Plus how much would it cost to shuttle players back  and forth from Florida to say Detroit?   I think you are truly under estimating the value minor league baseball provides to MLB. I think this is all about the lawsuit from minor league players saying they are being paid below minimum wage.  I guess a simpler solution is lower the amount of bonuses you pay drafted players and increase salaries.  That would make the pay more equitable.  And provide housing for the players.  And cater their food.     
    • I hate to ruin this guy’s narrative, but Kevin Goldstein is hardly one of the “young finance and Wall Street bros.”    I don’t know exactly how old he is, but he’s got a 21-year old son, and so far as I know, he has no background on Wall Street or finance, having previously been a long-standing scouting guru for Baseball Prospectus.   And, he didn’t “immediately” send out his email after getting hired; he’d been working for the Astros for 5 years at that point.   
    • Just based on the eye test, this is the best team in football.  They are a more complete team than anyone else.  You do worry about Jackson getting injured, but I think every player other than Brady (somehow, in spite of his middle age) is susceptible to injury at any given time.  Just looking at the schedule, I think the Ravens will get the 2 seed.  It isn't that they can't win their last 6, because they can.  I just don't think New England is losing any more games.  The Patriots are not the Patriots of old and their final 15-1 record will be more indicative of their fortunate scheduling (having Dallas and KC at home helps a lot, as does 6 games against a pathetic division).  The Chiefs are not beating the Ravens twice, especially if the game is in Baltimore.  And no other AFC team is capable of winning in New England in January.  So I think it comes down to yet another Ravens-Patriots showdown in Mass.  The good news is this may be the only franchise not scared of the Patriots "aura and mystique," but they will have to beat them twice.  Hard to do. 
    • So baseball want in increase their fanbase and tweak the game, and keep current fans, bring back old fans, and attract new fans. So you go and screw with everybody minor league system.  
    • My granddaddy shot a 72 on his 72nd birthday. I shot a 60 back on my 60th, those rotating ducks was no match for me.
