  1. 2018 MLB Trade Rumors and Deadline Thread

    Oakland could use a SS.
  2. Jacob deGrom 2018 Outlook

    Make no mistake: Every pitch deGrom throws, and every minute that ticks away on his control-ability, he loses value. His "peak value" was probably in 2014 when he was 26. Indeed, in 2015 deGrom was ranked 20th in Fangraphs trade value series. In 2016 he was ranked 22nd and in 2017 he was ranked 37th. I doubt he'll rank higher than 20th in this year's rankings, but who knows.

    Such star power. 95% of the fans tuning in / in attendance are going to be like "who are these guys?" lol

    And why is that? Sounds like they're scared deGrom will flame out before he reach free agency. Bet on yourself Jake.

    Kinda like in an auction draft when you bid up the price of a guy you don't want, because you don't want anyone else to get him for cheap!
  6. Starling Marte 2018 Outlook

    Doesn't get too much love but Marte's been sneaky valuable, hasn't he? 25 steals to go along with 13 HRs and an .800 OPS? Most 20+ steal guys carry OPSes in the .600s.
  7. 2018 MLB Trade Rumors and Deadline Thread

    Are the Orioles, like, doing due diligence on potential trade pieces/prospects here or are they just trying to squeeze every possible dime from their trade counterparts? If it's the latter, when does a team pull the offer Shark-Tank style??

    Dude. Norris is finally good. He's been doing laundry of, and picking up dry-cleaning for, the better players on the team -- sometimes younger than him -- for like the last 10 years! Now that he's actually good, let him enjoy hazing the rooks!
  10. 2018 MLB Trade Rumors and Deadline Thread

    I'd love to be a fly on the wall in some of these trade negotiations. I wonder, are the negotiations highly sophisticated? Or is it like two fantasy managers nonsensically going back and forth? Say, do rival GMs actually ask Cashman for Torres? What kind of negotiation tactics do they use? Do they use the ole' "you don't need that guy" or that "guy's not very good" move? "Oh you don't need Andujar, you have Drury" I'd love to know haha.

    The sprint speed is interesting. Third best sprint speed among first baseman, trailing only Hunter Dozier (who cares) and Bellinger.

    7% in Yahoo lower than I thought

    Clippard blew a save today, btw.
  14. July Closer Thread 2018

    If bad teams at the deadline trade their closers, and get worse, will there even be save opportunities for the replacements???

    Wouldn't even discuss it? Come on!
