  1. At what cost per? He will be very good for 3 more I bet.
  2. Either he goes to the pen as a long man, or, more likely, we trade him. I think giving him innings at this point, at the cost of our young guys developing has the potential to stunt their growth.
  3. Folty, Gausman, Newcomb, Touki, Soroka. Next man is Gohara or Fried.
  4. He has been injured, but in a dirt bike accident, and a line drive off the hand. Those are not body worn out kind of injuries. Those are "**** it, be more careful..."
  5. I agree in some respect. Sometimes down years are not just the players in question, but, the team around him. I thought his talent displayed previous, and the combine will show, he is a great athlete, and worthy of a pick around here. If I am wrong, I am happy to admit it. I felt it was a solid, if not very good draft anyway. I would be happy with this hall.
  6. It was a bad idea, the title. Trade for MadBum, and sign MG. Sorry for the confusion. I think it would fill our biggest needs. We can look for Bullpen help as teams fall out of the race mid-year.
  7. 14: R1P14 DL ED OLIVER HOUSTON 45: R2P13 OG CODY FORD OKLAHOMA 79: R3P15 OC ELGTON JENKINS MISSISSIPPI STATE 117: R4P15 RB BRYCE LOVE STANFORD 138: R4P36 TE ISAAC NAUTA GEORGIA 153: R5P14 EDGE AUSTIN BRYANT CLEMSON 173: R5P34 CB MARK FIELDS CLEMSON 188: R6P13 QB TRACE MCSORLEY PENN STATE 232: R7P16 LB NATE HALL NORTHWESTERN This was my effort on their site with their rankings running the draft.
  8. I, at this point, would like to begin to see us sure up some of the vacancies we have. In order to do that, I believe we need to sign Marwin Gonzalez, and trade for MadBum. MG is a utility guy who can perform as a solid plus starter. He would be more affordable than Pollack or Cargo, and much more affordable than Harper. He would be a good platoon for Duvall, if that is the direction we are heading, and, he can play elsewhere if needed. this allows our prospect to come up and play, and his flexibilty to benefit us. Madison Bumgardner is a past ace, with something left in the tank, imo. He would be a good leader for the year he is here, and, since he was a Brave's fan growing up, and, we have a good chance at the post season here, he may be inclined to resign, making the prospect(s) needed to pry him from San Francisco worth it. They are said to be looking for a pitching prospect, which we have in spades, and, if he doesn't pan out, he is a free agent after this year.
  9. Or breaking in his 3B glove....
  10. 3 and 40 would be a good price for both. We get the WAR when he is healthy, and he gets paid when he is not. I don't think I would want to go over 3 years though. Players who are health risks, do not get better, heath-wise, with age.
  11. There is a serious valuation discrepancy. Players are going to have to begin to all play for 5 teams, or they are going to take great money, and not expect Mike Trout money. The big 5, NY, BOS, LA, SF and CHI are ruining the market for any team not willing to spend like them. I hope there begins to be some draft pick consideration in Luxury tax situations.
  12. He has huge bounce-back potential, meaning Duvall. Pence and Duvall are too similar imho. I don't dislike Pence, as some do, I just don't see the fit. I am thinking a left-handed, veteran, who, is willing to platoon. Or, a solid starter, who can give us 130 starts or so.
  13. If Pence would be a 50 game starter, think he could be a good fit, but, he is poor platoon with Duvall. I am hoping for a reduced price on Pollack, or Marwin Gonzalez. MG gives us a lot of flexibility.
  14. I love them, but, Raekwon is a ticking time bomb. I am a Bama fan, and each of these guys has the potential to be great picks. Of the 4, I would love Terrell Lewis and Josh Jacobs the most. I think Trevon is going to take a few years to get his bearings.
  15. He could be a great fit, if he can stay healthy. The article specifically compares contract values, and that was the point of the post. If he were to lower his ask, he may be a very good fit for us.
