Nunez released.   Bannon, Wells, Matson, Baumann, Lowther, Diaz added per Roch.

Nunez being released is a very mild surprise.    I think this is a shot of confidence for Bannon in particular.    Nunez release is certainly good news for someone like D.J. Stewart.

Do you think Jones and McGregor's K rates would be the same in this era?     You don't think Scott McGregor or Randy Jones could have pitched in this era?   Is that what you are saying?

I think they would be higher, but not high enough.

Yes I don't think Jones or McGregor would have been successful starting pitchers in this era.

Maybe bullpen guys, not starters.

Surprised Pop didn’t make list and Nunez is redundant but still had a big year in 2019 think someone would pick him up as he is pretty cheap too.

I'll agree to disagree.

And Wells probably throws harder than either of them, right?  I’m just hoping he has a shot.  Would be fun to watch a pitcher like that succeed today.

I'm hoping he does well.

But I personally wouldn't bring up Jones or McGregor as comps when they pitched over thirty years ago.

So Davis cost of Nunez. Probably true, but I understand they have to keep Davis.

I do not think Davis had much to do with it.

Not a surprise in the sense that it is the right move, but it might be a little bit surprising that they actually did the right move. The times they are a changing’...

Glad they are keeping Mattson and Wells. A little surprised but I like it. Will miss Nunez but not that much. Much prefer to lose Nunez than risk losing anyone with prospect value.

I do. They have Davis, Mountcastle and Mancini. There’s only so many 1b/DH you can have.
