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.

    • Denyi Reyes signs with the Mets on a minor league deal.     https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2022/11/mets-sign-denyi-reyes-to-minor-league-deal.html
    • Thought this would be a good place to post Orioles related stuff.
    • Worley has been elevated to the roster in front of this game. I think a decision will need to be made after this game as I think that he used up the exemption 
    • You guys that are worrying about blocking guys crack me up. If you aren’t adding in free agency you aren’t trying to win now. Besides the Os don’t have 7 allstar ballplayers coming up in the next 2 or 3 year.
    • Going from Mullins to Kiermaier is a downgrade and there is no proof that Cowser has anywhere close to the range of Mullins.   Better to keep Mullins and sign a FA starter. Stowers and Cowser will push Santander and Hays for playing time  in the near future but not quite yet.    I like the depth they provide.   Did you see how injuries hit Tampa last year?
    • Yes, they can.  But could they improve more by downgrading somewhat in CF to get a pitcher who’s a better option than anyone available on the FA market, age, health, ability and cost all considered?   That’s the question.   I’m not saying the answer is clear, but that is what Elias & co. need to consider.   And it depends on what Mullins would bring back and what the alternatives are in CF.   Trade Mullins straight up for Lopez and sign Kiermaier until Cowser is ready?   I am not crazy about that one.  But there could be some similar scenario that works.  
    • There are many ways to improve.  In my opinion starting pitching is our greatest weakness.  If we can trade from our strengths, position players, to enhance our pitching staff, then do it if the right deal came along.  I'd be willing to part with about any position player on our mlb roster other than Adley and Gunnar.  If Mullins is our most valuable trade piece on the roster, then trade him for pitching.  I feel we have enough young talent coming up to replace his production in the lineup. Let's be clear, I'm not advocating a firesale or anything goofy. But with Westburg, Ortiz, Stowers, Cowser, etc all possibly seeing MLB time this year and hopefully outperforming who they replace in the lineup, and a full year of Gunnar and Adley, I expect the runs scored to increase even if we don't add bats from free agency.  But it's the arms that worry me as Grod only 1 starter and will be limited on pitches.  I'm ok with trading a position starter if we can get a worthwhile pitcher, and Mullins may be the best chip to play.   And given that I'm down on him repeating a 3.8 WAR season or better in 2023, he'd be at the top of my list.  We will get more for him than we would for a Hays, Mateo or Urias.
