  1. 2017-2018 Off-season and Hot Stove Thread

    Altherr is almost 27 and has had one good MLB season (filled with injuries) and Nick Williams, as mentioned above, has some of the ugliest plate discipline numbers in recent memory. Saying that the Phillies shouldn't have signed Santana because of the effect it would have on those two is laughable to be honest.

    I don't dislike Hosmer, but I think Santana is a really good player. It is a strange move for Philly. I think it would have made more sense for the Indians to bring him back, but it seems like Klentak badly wants some OBP-heavy hitters.
  3. 2017-2018 Off-season and Hot Stove Thread

    Dude, Hosmer's been one of the worst defensive 1B in the league. Gold Gloves don't mean anything. They give it to Hos because "He looks like a ballplayer" over there and antiquated stuff like that.
  4. 2017-2018 Off-season and Hot Stove Thread

    Based on what? Give me a metric, other than batting average, that says he's better. It's not like Hos is a career .320 hitter. Dude has had years where he's hit .232, .270 and .266.

    Really? What stats do you want to use? Santana has been a better player than Hosmer. We all know how inconsistent Hos is. Santana has 3 or 4 really good years left probably and that's what Philly signed him for. Hosmer would require a mega deal and he's a very up and down player, as you stated.

    Santana's career wRC+: 123 Hosmer's career wRC+: 111 Santana's career OBP: .365 Hosmer's career OBP: .342 Santana's career WAR: 23.3 Hosmer's career WAR: 9.9 Santana has been a better hitter over his career than Hosmer and was also much better than Hosmer last year defensively. Hosmer would have required a much longer contract and higher dollar amount. I think it's a solid move for Philly as that division is poor outside of Washington and they need to start putting out a more competitive team.

    They'll probably move either Williams or Altherr I would think. Hoskins, Santana, and Herrera are going to need everyday ABs, so you have to move one of those two.
  8. Giancarlo Stanton 2018 Outlook

    Great thing about baseball is the trade for one hitter or pitcher doesn't make a team a sure thing. Baseball's an individual sport in a team sport structure, which is why it's my favorite by a country mile. Judge and Stanton both could hit 50+ bombs in the regular season, but they still have to face elite breaking balls in the playoffs. It will be fun to see those two on the same team, even though I'm not remotely a Yankee fan.
  9. Eli Manning 2017 Season Outlook

    He'll land elsewhere next year. As terrible as QB play is around the league, Eli is still a fine option for many QB-needy teams with decent overall rosters (Jax, Arizona, Broncos, Buffalo).
  10. Five worst starting current QBs in no order IMO: Savage Flacco Kizer Trubisky Cutler/Moore Sad when guys like Siemian, Brissett, Bortles, Hundley, Beathard, and whoever Arizona is going to throw out there don't make it. Flacco has obviously had a decent career, but man he's bad now.
  11. Nathan Peterman 2017-2018 Outlook

    Obviously, I'm just speculating. But most rookie QBs are terrible, so unless your starter is Osweiler or Savage, then a late-round rookie is going to be a massive immediate downgrade.
  12. Nathan Peterman 2017-2018 Outlook

    I could understand going to Peterman if the team was 1-8 or 2-7, but they were in the second Wild Card spot in the wretched AFC. They have vets like Kyle Williams and Eric Wood who have never made the playoffs. It's a slap in the face to those guys, as well as vets like McCoy and Clay, to put a fifth-round rookie in over a decent NFL starter when you're 5-4. Those guys know Peterman isn't the best option and I have to imagine McDermott lost some respect in the locker room with this move.
  13. Nathan Peterman 2017-2018 Outlook

    Is McDermott just incredibly dumb or is ownership pressuring him to go with Peterman? It's one or the other.
  14. 11/19/17 - Chargers vs. Bills

    I'm sure ownership forced McDermott into starting Peterman. This is clearly a move from up top. There's no way McDermott saw enough from this scrub in practice to make the decision to start him over a reasonably competent NFL QB.
  15. 11/19/17 - Chargers vs. Bills

    The vets on the Bills must be pissed. While Tyrod is certainly no world-beater, he would have given them a chance to beat a mediocre Charger team. Peterman is absolutely brutal.
