Smith is younger and has more upside. I don’t know why they would not use him at this point.  

Young seems like a great guy but he isn’t the type we should be playing. He is well past his prime.  

Intangibles. He’s a great base stealer and embraces the mentor role to younger players.

Rickard better be careful and stop hitting so good. He might be the next big hitter to get cut. He's batting .405 now.

Thanks, but the MLB should know better than to call that listing of players the Active Roster; the Active Roster consists of those (currently, 25 players) eligible to play that day's championship season game.

Good post. Things have become a bit clearer for better or worse. Elias will be hitting the waiver wire hard through OD. Primarily to try and find a prayer at SP. Alberto, Wilkerson, and Arajuo are all in danger of DFA. If SPs are available with options, we may even see a surprise get DFA. The pitching is in disarray.  Like 110 loss disarray.  

Still unanswered,

C- Sucre vs Perez. Or is Wynns healthy. Wynns would save a 40 man move. I’m sure Elias wants Wynns healthy to be the backup C.  No sense in losing a playing over Sucre, but we might have to.

Can Jackson be the 4th OF and the backup SS/2B? 

Last bench spot - Escobar vs Alberto vs Smith Jr vs EY Jr. (Jace??????)

Wildcard - Could Nunez get DFA?  Jace Peterson could make the team based solely on versatility. 

Having to have Davis, Trumbo, Mancini, and Nunez on the 25 man, really limits versatility and defense.

We should not have Davis and Trumbo on the 25 man. I know we have to deal with bad mistakes of the past, but wow! I see no reason why we can't DFA Trumbo. It's not that much money to lose.

    • Just talking about the general trend that analytic teams realize that arms are more risky, so they're ranking gets slightly dinged to compensate for that. He also didn't pick a pitcher until the 8th round last year. Things like on base skills are harder to mold using modern training, places like driveline are much more effective for pitchers.
    • I guess so.  If they want to have Mize paired with Lacy/Hancock, it's hard to argue with.  Tork does seem to be the consensus #1 pick though.  I am curious when the last time there was a player previously thought to be the consensus #1 pick who didn't go first overall.   
    • Saw a mock draft with us taking Martin and left drafting pitcher Nick Swiney at 30 https://prospects365.com/2020/05/25/ray-butlers-2020-mlb-mock-draft/
    • The Frobster beat me to posting the Melewski interview by 13 minutes.   The article mentions the Os in on quality international prospects that we knew about including Samuel Basallo and Maikol Hernandez and one that I am not sure I have seen mentioned with the Os here - Wilmer Feliciano who will get a signing bonus just under $500k and has big left-handed power.  A reminder that none of these guys are signed, just apparently committed or agreed to the Os until they are signed. It seems like a very strong group of elite prospects given how late our current FO was to the game of signing this upcoming J2 class.   The payoff from these guys is likely years away, but I think there is a chance last year's class and this year's class should start impacting our top 30 prospects entering 2021.  How optimistic is it to think predict our next international signing to reach our top 10 would be by 2022?  
    • Don’t have a subscription, but here’s an interview the author, Ben Badler, gave to Steve Melewski.   https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2020/06/baseball-americas-ben-badler-on-os-international-effort-video.html At the end of the video, Badler speculates that the next CBA will create an international draft.   He thinks the players will posture about and then “maybe they’ll trade it for a few extra inches of legroom on the bus.”    LOL!    
    • Bad quality vid but its the only one that I found that shows Frohwirth's side of it. Back in that era Martinez grabs some pine 9 out of 10 times with that pitch.
