  1. 2018 Completed Trades Thread

    I would have done that trade. Top 10 pitchers don't become available every day.
  2. ESPN normally does a bulk add of players but that doesn't look like it will be the case this year. Keeping those high waiver wire picks will e important this year if you want guys like Whitley.
  3. A.J. Puk - SP OAK

    He only had half a season in double A. I would say June or even July at the earliest. It would definately be after the super 2 deadline.
  4. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    And in an interesting note Braden Halliday pitched for Team Canada in a perfect 8th inning. I can see him being the next to continue the Blue Jay trend.
  5. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    If only that were the key. Don't forget about Kacy Clemens who also played in the game. You could technically include Lourdes Gurriel in the conversation too. I think big brother was more of a legend than the dad though.
  6. A.J. Puk - SP OAK

    They just signed Trevor Cahill. Pretty much puts Puk in the minors to start.
  7. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Nope Cavan Biggio. Son of Craig Biggio. Future 2B for the Jays. Pretty good prospect in his own right. Had a low batting average last year but hit 11 HR and had 11 SB in high A. I think you might be referring to Biagini though who also pitched today in another game and did all right.
  8. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Him and Bo, Biggeo, and a few other prospects playing for the Jays today against the Canadian Jr team.

    Are you saying team B had Goldy, Boegarts, Carrasco, Donaldson, Upton and Sale and traded them all away? Time to get rid of the owner of team B especially for that last trade.
  10. A.J. Puk - SP OAK

    Experts are saying no. Oakland should be keeping him down until after super 2. With Oakland being a low revenue club it makes sense to gain the extra year of they can trade him later.
  11. Toronto Blue Jays 2018 Outlook

    Don't see how they win only 75. That is less than last year. They definately made some improvements and injuries also derailed them last year. Plus more teams sold off assets and are rebuilding. Not saying they will be anything great but to say they will be worse than last year is a little off.

    According to the Jays broadcaster Grandy will leadoff against RHP. Looks like Travis again LHP. Teoscar is 5th behind Grandy, Pillar, Grichuk and Pearce. Before the injuries to Pearce, Grichuk and now Alford they were sending Teoscar to AAA to start along with Alford, that is probably still the case. They are expecting Grichuk and Pearce back before opening day. I have read nothing about it but I am assuming they are keeping Solarte healthy in case Donaldson's injury lingers or gets worse keeping him out longer as the only other that can play 3B is Martin and even that I believe he only played one game in the spring which was the first time in 6 years.
  13. Teoscar Hernandez 2018 Outlook

    Gibbons, find some way to keep this guy in the lineup! A grand slam his last game. Today he has 1 HR, 1SB 2 for 2 with 2 runs and 3 RBI and a walk to boot. Hitting a nice .357 so far. Think it is time to trade Pearce to keep this guy up considering Grichuk and Pearce are hurt and so is Alford.
  14. Jharel Cotton 2018 Outlook

    GettIng and MRI on his elbow. Shame, he seemed to be putting things together this spring with 16k's in 12 innings.
  15. picking last in my draft

    It's always alright to take the best player available especially at the top of the draft.
