Tex signed?


Old Beta

Recommended Posts

So people don't have to wade through yesterday's very long thread to find it, Baseball 7117 submitted post #1438 to say:

Read into this as much or as little as you want. I just received a text saying we got him.

Please note:

1. I'm uploading this for everyone's convenience only.

2. That's all his note said, and it was submitted at about 3:40 a.m.

3. I have no idea whether the management has vetted him as an insider, but he's made a few of these posts and no one's stopped him yet.

That's all I know! If the management thinks it's inappropriate for any reason, please go ahead and delete it.

UPDATE: Poster Elbren suggests I add another post from Baseball 7117 in that thread. He said:

Thanks for the suggestion.

Well I guess we'll know soon enough if he knows what he's talking about or not. That something to look forward to in the morning. Hope he's right.

I'm glad you did this. I don't know if this poster is legit or not. And frankly, I hate having to question it. But, I figure anyway, that putting this out there could, possibly, bring the validity of this rumor to light sooner rather than later.

Thanks.

Anybody else not seeing new posts in the big thread? Is it just me?

It IS 5 am... :P

Something I question, if 7117's post was dated 3:40am, I find it hard to believe AM and Boras and Tex are working this far into the wee hours, even for something this important. Could also be just that 7117's source heard it later, texted 7117 even later, and he posted even later.

I'm just rambling here... hope it's true.

While I think it's a good idea to pull this info. out of that thread, it's should also be pointed out that he posted this as well:

    • That research makes me wonder if a Club's typical number of 5-4-3 double plays could get as high as 50-60.    I think those pivots get counted as chances and shortstops don't get similar ones except 3-6-3's, of which I believe Ryan Mountcastle has about two in his career. B-Ref shows about 115 grounded double plays/team last year, so 50's probably a too high guess.    Its probably more like 80-85 up the middle, 30-35 around the horn.
    • I believe Westburg will be a good but light version of a Bergman type player. Want to see Mayo play at the MLB level before making his comparison 
    • I think this is probably right, but I’m interested to see if he’s able to minimize some of his flaws this year.  He seemed to be making some progress in the second half last year, though it could have just been a prolonged hot streak.  Jury’s still out a little IMO.    As mentioned, I also think Westburg has a lot more in the tank than he showed during his decent major league debut.   
    • Would that have to do with the elimination of the shift? In 2022 and prior, you’d have SS and 3B getting chances on the right side.
    • It matters if you think there is a significant upside gap between Westburg and Mayo. I agree if you feel good about Westburg as an everyday player the pressure on Mayo's glove is less.     Clay Davenport's six-year forecasts basically envision Mayo as a 3-win player and Westburg as a 2-win player. Somewhere around that range is a tipping point where Sigbots gain inner peace letting a player play 155 games.     I think Mayo might be that, and Westburg isn't.
    • The old adage is you take someone at the more important position and if you have to, move them down the spectrum.  If you draft a 2B (ie Norby) down the spectrum could be LF or DH.  I’ve read some reports on Termarr Johnson where there are some doubts on his future at 2B. Holliday was drafted as a SS.  Maybe he could even be okay or better there but we have the luxury of moving him down the spectrum.  
    • Everyone's time is limited. I think Mayo and Westburg are more likely to be members of the 2026 club but I'd rather not rush to move Mayo off third.
