  1. Waiver Wire - Streaming Options - Week 15

    Been streaming all year against BLT. Sooner or later it will blow up in my face but an obvious stream with Machado gone now.

    Couldn't the Cards trade him than for something better?
  3. Bellinger or Hoskins ROS

    Why would you want to trade Freeman for either of them? Both, imo, are significant downgrades just to get younger.

    The Royals need prospects though as when will they be contending again? 3-5years if lucky? A lot of IFs above as in IF Martinez continues hitting the next three years, IF he improves defensively, IF there is no decline as he approaches his mid thirties, and IF another team has an opening for a straight DH which most (not all) are getting away from and using the DH as a rotating position to get players a rest day. It could be a good trade for the Cards but I just don't see it for the Royals. For the Royals it seems like spinning their wheels and just staying bad.

    Maybe but I just feel that even for a rental K.C. should be able to do better.

    You don't trade what is your best player for a 30year old DH on a team that is rather a long way from contending.
  7. Jose Martinez 2018 Outlook

    yes because every rebuilding team wants a soon to be 30 poor fielding 1st baseman. It is funny on the telecast they keep hammering away on how poor the Cardinal defense really is.
  8. Jose Martinez 2018 Outlook

    Not all bad fielding plays are errors though. He doesn't get to a ball that 90% of the 1st baseman gets and it goes for a hit. Stretches poorly on a throw from 2nd on a DP. It isn't an error as you can't assume a DP. Out of position on a cutoff play and a runner gets an extra base may not be called an error but the other team ends up scoring an added run with it. Have only watched a few Cardinal games and the team defense really isn't that good but even still he stood out. The time to work on this is before games, off days, and Spring training not during the games when it actually matters for the poster above who says he won't get better sitting on the bench.

    Or he could sign an extension for millions and get hurt the next day and never pitch again. Too many IFs could happen

    Would make an interesting civil court case as he would be breaking a contract he signed. If he lost and had to pay the Mets for lost income could turn into a nice chunk of change.
  11. 2018 MLB Trade Rumors and Deadline Thread

    It would even suck to be a prospect from an average team and be sent to the Orioles.
  12. Mookie Betts 2018 Outlook

    I don't know how much difference this makes but Mookie plays in a much better lineup for counting stats and has the advantage of if he has a bad night Boston has a good chance of winning. The Angels are basically Trout and 24 AAAA players.
  13. 7/13 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Twins bullpen doing its nightly collapse. Still up 8-7 though.
  14. 7/13 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Mauer with a three run shot to dead center. Twins up big 8-1 bottom of the third.
  15. The Home Run Derby "Curse"

    The Derby was also blamed for the next two years and he never broke twenty for the rest of his career I believe.
