Definitely. I also think that it is very likely you can get more for Means at next year's trade deadline than you could get for him now if the velocity bump is real. Too much uncertainty with Means to actually get a haul large enough to make it worth trading him.
That's valid, I know that he was recovering from illness too. I guess I'm just jaded with failed prospects.
Also, I really don't want to trade guys like Means. I have been less than happy with some of the returns we've gotten from trades in the last few years.
Right now I'm just happy that we are exceeding expectations.
Huh? Are you basing this off his minor league numbers last year after coming off mono? Give me a whole minor league season where he doesn't hit and I'll worry. I don't think he was ever 100% last year.
I do not think the plan included having the 2021 team win 90. I don't think most of the highly regarded prospects will be playing in Baltimore next year.
If they get to 90 with AR, Hall, Rodriguez and Kjerstad in the minors then I'll be a believer.
