Hyde has "The Talk" with John Means

Means Akin Kremer and who?

Cobb will be moved in the off-season, which opens a spot.

Next spring will be exciting.

I don't think Cobb will be moved unless a lot of salary is absorbed by the team.  More than likely he is back next season. 

Means, Cobb, Akin, Kremer, Lopez/Zimmerman to start the season. Lowther and Baumann should be candidates to get called up during the first half of the season.

I don’t want to sound contentious but that’s too simple. If the team sucks up 7 million, they still save 8 million by trading Cobb, and I think they will do so because they’re not really any pressing need to keep him. The money is already spent, so anything they save will be a bonus, and that could go towards signing, for instance, a competent third baseman. As happens every year, there will be non-tenders galore, and I fully expect B-More to pick up a bunch more Jorge Lopezez along the way. I’ve made a long list of guys who will get the axe(and I’m adding Sulser and Valaika)But there will still be lots of guys, and there’s no need for Cobb.

Means era 5.02still not good but that whip of 1.088 is very impressive.  The numbers don’t reflect the improvement in stuff an actually I am more confident in him after this year because of the uptick in fastball.  He went from possible back end of the rotation guy to a two or three on a contending team.

I’m surprised at how high his FIP still is. Symptom of HR rate? WHIP, K/9, and K/BB are all superior to 2019 at the moment

Hyde has shown to be a great communicator with his players and really does a good job is seeing those things and knowing when they need to be addressed. 

Reminds me of Davey telling Mussina, he didnt have to strike out every hitter he faced.

Wow, what an impressive finish to Means’ season.   Made one mistake but otherwise he was awesome.    We may have a TOR pitcher here.
