Offseason Rumors and Deals Around MLB

Recommended Posts

If the Os do sign Alvarez does that all but put the Davis signing with the Os to bed? Or does it mean Trumbo would play RF?

I think that you can't have Davis, Trumbo and Alvarez on the same team.

Helton will suffer like Walker is right now. Larry Walker is a HOF player, but the voters can't see past the Coors Field effect.

Joey Votto meanwhile is going to blow past Helton with good health. Easier said than done -- see Helton, who past age 31 had a 111 OPS+.

Speaking of Votto and Hamilton...

Fun piece.

1B/RF/DH looks fine to me.

Unless you're referring to the strike outs...

Trumbo's bat is pretty much neutralized by his glove in the outfield.

He certainly isn't worth 9M if he is going to be in the outfield.

I'm talking about Davis in the outfield. It's for one year. Trumbo and Alvarez are rentals.

I don't want any of the three in the outfield except in case of emergency.

Sorry,but what is a pillow deal? Sits in rhe dugout till he hits.Does he get a memory pillow?

I think Joel meant he would re-establish his value like Cruz did. Or like Kendrys Morales did. I think that is what he meant. Take a smaller amount and leave after year. Hopefully with no QO since it will be over 16 million and no one would pay that for Alvarez.

Yea, but you can sometimes get by. They had Cruz in the outfield for most of a year where they won 96 games. Just put Rickard in for defense in the 7th in every game they have the lead and maybe you don't hemorrhage too many runs.

Davis has a strong arm and is decent in the outfield. I need to check his stats they maybe SSS, but I thought he was fine.

Edit. Numbers match what I saw. His range/glove/arm play above average in the outfield.

They moved into first place in July, but which time Cruz was primarily the DH, IIRC.

    • No team was willing to pay that, so I guess he isn't worth that, not right now anyway. 🤷‍♂️
    • He has an .861 career OPS in the minors. .279/.340/.520/.861 https://www.mlb.com/player/chris-shaw-622046?stats=career-r-hitting-minors&year=2020 https://www.fangraphs.com/players/chris-shaw/17738/stats?position=OF
    • Save a few late-season DH plate appearances for Rutschman. I guess if Shaw puts up some really impressive numbers in Norfolk he'll be insurance in the event of injuries or a useful trade piece. 
    • Have you seen him play, or maybe watched video of Shaw? I am about 30 minutes into it, and there is a lot to like and some to not. The major league stats, no. But the 6-04 225-230 pound athletic frame and 70 power that he has shown throughout his minor league time, yes. Looks like the hands work well. His load can be late, sometimes gets the foot down late, and he gets long at times. He sometimes has a leg kick, sometimes not. Maybe get him to simplify the lower half and take some of the hand load out to simplify his timing. He looks like a pull hitter, at least in the Fangraphs spray chart in his MLB time. He moves well for a big guy, but a 40-45 runner. Arm looks like about a 50. I can see why they took him.  He has an option, whereas Nunez did not. LH power bats are not a common thing.  If they like him, they may not waive him for a while, despite the nearly 50% k rate in 82 MLB at bats. Someone else will grab him. I just watched him hit a 468 foot home run , albeit in Colorado, but it was a bomb.  https://www.mlb.com/player/chris-shaw-622046?stats=career-r-hitting-minors&year=2020 https://www.fangraphs.com/players/chris-shaw/17738/stats?position=OF
    • Hard to agree with any of this.  We aren't loaded with LH power.  We have room for him in AAA.  He has an option and if we need the 40 man spot, we can try to DFA him and pass him thru waivers.  And a .947 OPS looks pretty good to me, even in PCL.  Or are you focusing only on 72 MLB at bats in 2 cups of coffee?  This is a minor transaction that could bear fruit at little to no cost or risk.  Why get distraught over this?
    • Eshelman isn't lost yet.  He was DFA, not released.
    • I LOVE electrified, amplified acoustic guitars! There's an OLD video of a guy playing one on a bridge in NYC I think. So loud he was getting feedback, on an acoustic! But I can't remember his name or the song...   edit: looks like Sean Rowe has micro-transducers all over the top of his guitar, get the WHOLE sound.
