Díaz: I can make good omelets and salads also.

I was planning a trip to Aruba last summer, and before I had settled on that destination I asked at least two dozen people where they had been in the Caribbean and would recommend— Jamaica stood out as one that people did NOT recommend.

Maybe that's based on corporate Jamaica. Yu probably is going to the nitty gritty parts of Jamaica, where real natives live. Anthony Bourdain LOVED it there. Get off the beaten touristy track.

Not to mention the very OBVIOUS appeal of Jamaica... :D

 

For me, not Diaz. Jus' sayin'. Tony liked that too, off camera...

They do not test for cannabis on the 40 man roster.

I'm also planning a vacation to the Caribbean this year and if I was to go to Jamaica (which I'm definitely not) it would only be to corporate Jamaica where I could hide behind guarded fences. There is definitely a violent crime problem there...stay safe Mr. Diaz.

Totally off-topic and I'm not even sure why I'm posting this, but Snutchy, we just named a cat Snutchy (inspired by your posts here).   Hope you don't hate cats!

By the way, a simple web search showed your posts at OH as among the top results for a search on "Snutchy", so it appears that you've cornered the market on that name.  Except for our cat.

I'll try to post something more worthy next time.

    • I give you points for saying Please.
    • I don’t think the backup NEEDS to be anything.  Why does the backup have to be outstanding on defense?  Is that in the rule books or something?
    • Yes but the backup C needs to be outstanding on defense(Catchers who offer good offense are starters.)But neither of our current guys is a qualified backup. If AR were here now, he would still need a better backup then the two we have.
    • Why are we replacing Mancini? Rosario is probably a better defensive player than any LFer we will put out there but it would be dumb to spend money on an OFer with Diaz likely up.     This, again, goes back to the same type of conversation that has been had about Nunez.  From an offensive standpoint, Nunez and Rosario are similar, so you wouldn’t pay Rosario a lot more to DH when you could have just kept Nunez. And you wouldn’t clutter your roster (the argument used against Nunez) with another COer when you have so many options available both now in a few months into the season. In other words, couple our roster situation with the team unlikely willing to spend money and you can essentially lock this thread because there really isn’t much to talk about.  (Not saying mentioning him is bad, just doesn’t fit into the Os plans in anyway)
    • Yes, it is a fact that Mullins performed decent in a very SSS and that Hyde made those comments.     It also a fact that Mullins was a terrible player for the several years before that. It’s also a fact that he is 26, so while he is young, he also is at an age where you don’t expect guys to start getting a lot better.  Another fact that his OPS was driven by bunt hits.  That’s a skill, no doubt but not one I would want to rely on year in and year out as a reason a player hits for a decent average and gets on base at a decent clip.  
    • Well, the pitching did improve in 2020, albeit in a much smaller sample size than normal.  I think some of that stuff is overblown for the C position and these guys could help the pitchers by hitting better than a lot of C and contributing to scoring runs. They are all a stop gap for Adley anyway.
    • I would at least wait until he is actually nontendered before being interested. No way we would want to pay $9M for another OF. He could be a good replacement for Mancini while we are waiting for Kjerstad.
