While I am for this move, when you look at Fox's stats, you really have to wonder what we are going to get out of him.

They are just downright awful and it doesn't appear to be much in the way of bad luck either.

Encarnacion and Jackson are much better pickups.

Let's not forget the A's were trying to convert him to catcher as well.

I wonder if this might mean Wieters might be going down to AAA, with Tatum as the full time catcher and Fox as the backup.

It would explain why Atkins would still be on the roster.

Bergy up, Wieters down would be my prediction...

Of course it would, b/c it's the least likely to occur. It will very likely be Bergy up, Montanez or Atkins down/released.

Ehh, I am sure we could have come up with something...Maybe needing to send 2 players or something like that.

Yeah I like Jackson way more than Fox. I just think that Arizona was specifically looking for a bullpen arm they could plug in ASAP.

I wonder if Demel being closer to Oakland gave them a better scouting edge and was a guy they targeted too. Not trying to be an O's FO apologist but...Arizona might have really liked this guy.

Seriously? You see a pic of one of the hottest girls on the planet in her underwear and you talk about her thumbs?

Maybe your hero worship of AM is on a much different level than any of us thought. :D

I don't know. It was a good point. I think he should post about 15 more pics of her so we can continue to judge her...thumbs.

Well, I concur. I can't get past the thumbs. Seriously.

Me neither, actually. I've explained this to all my friends and they can't seem to understand. These thumbs are a deal breaker, plain and simple. I don't want to be anywhere near a girl who has a foot for a hand, thanks very much.

Now to get this thread back on track, I sure hope Jake Fox has some normal, human thumbs.

Sometimes I think SG gives RShack too hard of a time, but this time RShack pretty much asked for it.

    • When was Elias hired - November 2018?    A tight aggressive check-raise move has been almost 6 years in the making. Scott and Puk with Skubal and Crochet are a strong quartet of the world's best LHP this season.    It probably entails some equity loss to yield them all to other championship contenders. It'd be asking a lot of Gunnar Henderson to drag the roster past all those guys in various postseason rounds.    He looked kinda feeble against Puk last night.
    • I actually like the idea of trading for Jazz Chisolm for our OF mix for the next few all-in seasons since he has the speed to cover CF or LF in OPACY. I really think the guy could be a superstar in a better run organization like the Orioles.  They need bats really badly, so maybe try to package a few of the blocked guys like Stowers and Norby with a couple of prospects, maybe Beavers and a pitcher they like, for Jazz and Scott?
    • I'm just hoping McDermott throws strikes, which has been a tall order for him this season.
    • Man what a difference a year makes in Westys value.  And that writeup summarizes it beautifully. Westy ranks one spot behind Robert (someone who has been discussed frequently here on OH as trade target), which makes for interesting challenge — who would Os fans rather have, Westy or Robert?
    • I am hoping for 6.3 years of Holliday/Mayo starting July 31st in the Toronto series finale.    One source gives Kikuchi as the TOR probable that day, but if he pitches that day it is maybe as likely for us as for them. All the posturing will be over.    Maybe demand for bats and creativity results in a Mullins, O'Hearn or Mountcastle deal from the top of the deck, never mind Urias. One week from today it isn't impossible a lineup could be: SS Gunnar, C Adley, RF Santander, 1B O'Hearn, 3B Westburg, LF Kjerstad, DH Mayo, CF Cowser, 2B Holliday Granted It would be an unprecedented simultaneous rookie integration tax but however thorough SIGBOT's models are, the differences between AAA and MLB play I believe make it unclear how good Mayo/Holliday could be this October without data like that. You could always do like Cowser in July-August 2023 and option them back to Norfolk after 36-44 service days if they don't look promising. 
    • I was going through some old prospect rankings as it related to Elias/Sig trades last night.  One thing that stood out so very glaringly was with regard to the deal where the Astros got Brian McCann from the Yankees. They traded Albert Abreu and Jorge Guzman to NYY.  At the time of the deal, neither guy was on the prospect ranking radar at all. But after joining NYY, they both quickly became top 100 prospects. Yes, they both had good seasons in 2017 — but it was just another example of how the sun shines a little more brightly (and a lot more quickly) on NYY prospects who show anything in the minors.
    • Imagine the Tigers fans drooling over trading us Skubal for a haul and signing Burnes or Fried in offseason.
