Man. It gets worse.

I don't pretend to know enough about how they judge Catcher defense to answer that question.

I wasn't trying to correct you I was just showing that the metrics were inconsistent in their findings.

I think he clearly wasn't as good as in 2011-2012 but I don't think you call him below average without giving weight to some questionable stuff like CERA and Pitch Framing analysis.

I didn't take offense, I just thought you might know. I'm confounded by all the defensive metrics at times. Whatever helps bring clarity to the matter. When I read what FRAA was I thought it made sense.

That said, I'd like to see at least two reporting agencies have a somewhat similar number.

Beltran and Tanaka to follow. Meanwhile DD is pondering Roberts and Mclouth. This is just the start of another disappointing winter.

Eh, unlike McPhail (who looking back got us some good players for our current team), I trust DD to strike when the time is right. He has made deals at the deadlines, some good and some bad, and made splashes when necessary. If we do not get Beltran and Tanaka, it will not be because DD is worried about Roberts and McClouth.

This won't be like when we took a month to finalize Conine's deal and didn't do anything else.

Yup. It really is getting sad. Every off-season the exact same thing happens.

Not as recently as 2011, when we got Reynolds, Hardy, Lee, Vlad, etc. Not saying that was the best off-season (besides Hardy and maybe Reynolds) but we have had active offseasons in the past.

    • Did most people miss the words elite and controlled in the title? Surprised at how easily so many people said no, when I thought the bullpen was a consensus weakness of this team. I like Kjerstad too and you don't trade him for just anyone. But if you can get a difference making 8th/9th inning guy, who isn't a rental, that seems worth considering. 
    • No problem. Like I said I think Mike is open minded. Big difference obviously from shagging pre game to playing in games. Said Mayo is working on OF behind the scenes.

    • He didn’t cover that. Just said he responded well to the injection. Said in January he felt weird sensation ramping up. He felt like at time he could throw threw it. Credited rest and staff working with him. Build him back slowly in minors.    I enjoy listening to Front Office show and with Sirius app can go back and listen. 
    • I saw he was just put on the IL for a knee sprain. I hope it's not serious.

    • Thanks for sharing! I think Mayo in the OF is a good idea. Westburg is proving himself capable of being an every day option at 3B. 1B is covered for now unless something unexpected happens with Mountcastle. All of the OF prospects are left handed so Mayo would help balance that out.
