Garland signs with D-Backs

This stuff is all old news from yesterday, and should be on the MLB board.

So we can talk about Garland here when he's a FA and not a member of the O's, but as soon as he signs with someone then we can only post about it in the MLB section? Then shouldn't there be a FA section, cause if you can't talk about anyone not a member of the O's here, then FA's should be considered as NOT O's! I've never been to the MLB section, I only read about the O's and what affects them.

And Garland has nothing to do with the O's.

Trust, me I'm not usually someone that is laying down the law to people on here. But this was discussed plenty yesterday, and has now been relegated to the MLB forum. It was in the O's section for a while yesterday.

Just some friendly advice, when news is a day old, you can usually trust that its been discussed on here ad nauseaum already, considering most news gets posted within 10 minutes of occurring. Wasn't trying to give you a hard time.

I just read it on yahoo and saw it on MLB network while eating dinner. Some one delete the thread before everyone here loses sleep cause it's in the wrong section and a day late! Check out the date of the article on yahoo. It was posted an hour ago, how was I suppose to know it was from yesterday. I don't watch TV most days.

All he said was it should go in the other forum, and you went off with this.

There have been countless threads talking about Garland.

Here is one for you...... Posted just the other day

I read it the other day. The thread wasn't started because he signed with the B-backs, reread the 1st post.

    • I guess we were watching a different outing. 
    • You try to sign long term Gunnar and GR.  Wait and see on the others. As for Adley?   I would not sign him to a long term contract.  I hate to say it because I love the guy but he just does not seem worth what he is going to ask for imo.
    • I am not worried about Means AS LONG AS HE IS HEALTHY.   Big if.  But he knows what he is doing getting ready for what him is his spring training.  If he does this his first 2 starts or so?    Then I worry.
    • I had never seen him in a live at bat until I saw him at his first spring training at bat this year.  And I mean his very first at bat.   He struck out swinging on like 4 pitches and being honest looked completely over matched.  I remember thinking....."hmmmm that seems odd for a guy so highly touted".   He just seemed like he had no idea what he was doing.   But then I never really saw another live at bat from him again all spring training and he ended up doing pretty well.  However every at bat I have seen of him since he got called up?  Looked like that first spring training at bat.  He looks like my wife trying to hit a major league fastball.  He has no idea what he is doing. I have never seen someone so good against minor league players and yet so bad against major league players.  Just a huge discrepancy.   Has to be psychological.   He looks completely intimidated. 
    • And who is this somebody other than Means or Flarerty that would help us in the playoffs. Also remember Bradish and Grod did not help us in the Playoffs. So I guess It was unwise to wait on those 2. Plus Bradish is hurt and uncertain going foward( a la Means) Yeah you piled on.
    • I will say I am surprised at how utterly useless/helpless JH looks after he got called up.   Not just surprised. Stunned is a better word. This is not an 7th round pick who struggled for years in the minors.   This is the #1 pick from 2 years ago who has dominated his entire life in the game of baseball. Yet he looks like a player in 8th grade playing against seniors in HS.  He can barely make any contact and even his fielding and throwing is very iffy. It is like he took up the game of baseball within the last year.   A complete novice.   This has to be mental because even the worst of the worst can make more contact than he is.  He is FLAILING.   No way that is all physical.    At this point you send him down.   No questions asked.   I was more than willing to let him get through this if he SHOWED ANY SIGNS of life.  But he just doesn't.   He looks pathetic.    Manny Machado he is not.   Send him down for at least 3 months.   Bring up Mayo.  Or anyone really.  It is better than what he is offering.
