Mike Trout and the $400 Million Dollar Question

Redskins Rick

Recommended Posts

He had an off year defensively last year, but I don't think it helped that he bounced around from left to center. He wants to be in center and now he'll get his chance.

I don't think there's any doubt with his all around game he's the best.

Not many teams will be able to afford him,.

    • The reality is, we don’t know if they will contribute as much or more than the guys they would replace, or whether they’ll be significant downgrades.  There’s significant risk involved, especially when you’re talking about a team that’s winning with the personnel it already has.  If this was the 2021 offseason, decisions like this would be easy.   That paragraph might sound like I’m advocating standing pat.  I’m not.  I’m just saying these decisions aren’t simple.  Our evaluators have a lot of tricky decisions to make.  I’ll say this: I’m not making any moves yet based on what guys like Beavers, Fabian or Bradfield might do in 2-3 years.  None of those guys have a better than 50/50 chance to be better than our current outfielders at this stage.   Ask me again in a year and maybe I’ll feel differently.    
    • Minnesota has some pitching though. 
    • I’m more concerned with the general downturn in the offense in the last few weeks than I am about the Red Sox series in particular.  On the other hand, our pitching has been on fire.  We’ll see how things go.  There’s never any good way to predict what will happen next in baseball.  It’s a streaky game and hot and cold streaks often start and stop for no apparent reason.
    • I think Ojabo is a write-off.  With 2 career-threatening ankle injuries I just don't see how he can come back as a contributor.  The return-to-play rate after and achilles injury is already dicey, and he did make it back, but now to stack another one on top of that...
    • Just starting a thread to cover the AFL games since the other thread is about who made the roster.   First four games are night games beginning at 9:30 pm ET.  At least, I think it’s 9:30 and not 8:30.   Phoenix is 3 hours behind is right now and the schedule says 6:30 MST.   Phoenix stays on Standard Time in the summer.  Saturday’s game is a day game that I believe starts at 5:30 ET.
