  1. Hed be best served getting out of Minnesota.
  2. You mean Addison Reed, right? I mean I know AJ Reed was underwhelming and looks like a platoon bat but I cant imagine a position change yet!
  3. I think another part of this is that most teams, if not all, are wise to the plan. Clearly if a guy goes to Coors and goes bananas, a team isnt likely to pay him accordingly to those stats, the same on a one year rebuild for an SP to say San Diego. I dont know for sure, but I have to believe the cost structure somehow has park factors played into it by this point, that could be part of what prevents the idea being so readily applied.
  4. Maybe for some players, at this point though with a guy like Bautista I think the age and the pick are the bigger issues for him now and going forward. Add in his recent injury woes and he might be best off taking a series of 1 year deals. I think Ross just didnt have the market he expected which was clear with SD not tendering him for me, then the lack of suitors and minimal deal he signed. Though the Rangers do have a decent history of working with guys off of THoracic Outlet surgery. Trumbo did about as well as hes going to, not much more to prove or improve upon after hitting 47 HR. If teams arent enamored with him now they arent likely to be with inflated numbers in Colorado.
  5. Neither did the White Sox lineup, or bullpen. Guy is a victim of circumstance, unfortunately. Im less and less optimistic he gets traded as I think a team will only pony up the asking price if they view him as the piece to put him over the top. The Astros could be the case with that but some other teams dont. Outside that, maybe the Pirates still as they love the cost control and the quality but they also love pinching pennies and stashing prospects.
  6. And his run support cant possibly get any worse!
  7. Hes a very undervalued 3B in the market. Hes not sexy as a player by any means, he doesnt have a high profile, partly due to playing the Northwest. That said he is a virtual lock to give you 25-30 HR and a chance at 100 RBI with a solid average more often than not. If people dont like that, I cant help them.
  8. Yes. Thats done.
  9. His career BABIP is .379 across all levels so he might have some regression there, but not a ton. Id argue as well that his BB rate is likely to gain some as he sees more MLB pitching and learns the game at that level a bit better. hes never been an elite walks guy but has been in the 9% range or so through minors.
  10. In the end if they miss on Trumbo it seems like it would make more sense to move Cargo to 1B. They talked about it last year and from a health preservation standpoint it would be logical. Its just weird that theyd give a 5/70 deal to Desmond and move him to third position in three years along with that commitment. WHo knows though and in the end hes still hitting in Coors for half his games.
  11. Concerns about splitting SS playing time are dead in the water. Espinosa traded to the Angels. http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2016/12/nationals-trade-danny-espinosa-to-angels.html
  12. I cant stand Neil and his gang...so snarky, so very snarky. That said for dynasty leagues I love Fantrax.
