    Ugh. Still should be fine upon his return.

    To be fair, a strain is a tear. But yeah, I'm with you. This is good news and shouldn't be a concern.
  3. Off-season Closer Thread 2017/18

    Whatever happens this year, it can't be more high pressure than what he faced last season. I wouldn't worry in the least about his ability to handle the pressure, or his lack of closing experience. ETA to be clear we're talking about Morrow.

    Samardzjia himself has said he's working on the offspeed stuff. “All camp, I’ve just been trying to hammer home working on the off-speed stuff,” he said, “any situation, regardless of the result. When the game comes I’d probably be throwing fastball.”
  5. Off-season Closer Thread 2017/18

    Treinen is the guy in Oakland. He's been the guy all off-season and it's as clear a situation as any in baseball. If he falters it'll depend how other guys are doing at that time. Casilla has been pretty vocal about wanting the job in the past so if he's performing well he's likely going to get an opportunity. Unless you're in some insanely deep league I wouldn't bother drafting, or even watch listing, any other bullpen guys here. Treinen is the guy.

    Having Tommy John surgery. Oakland now looking into free agent arms.
  7. A.J. Puk - SP OAK

    They have yet to rule it out and are pretending it's a possibility, but it would be a huge shock, and probably bad business, if they didn't send him down to gain that extra year of control.

    Now with the Yankees. Will be hard to count on him later in the year with the kids knocking on the door, but probably opening day starter in an incredible lineup. Could be a great late round pick to help you out the first month or three.
  9. Tyler Wade 2018 Outlook

    Absolutely no clue who this guy is, but if he's starting for the Yankees he's worth keeping an eye on, if not drafting.
  10. Jonathan Lucroy 2018 Outlook

    Irrelevant. He's never been the future for this team and they needed an upgrade even if he's beating the charges. Catcher and outfielder were far and away their biggest holes coming into this off-season.
  11. Jonathan Lucroy 2018 Outlook

    Love this. My ideal Oakland off-season is complete. Thrilled with what they've done. If Lucroy flops it's a one year and his career is done. If he rebounds he can be sold at the ASB unless Oakland makes a darkhorse run.
  12. Jonathan Lucroy 2018 Outlook

    Something is going down soon. Oakland reportedly landing a veteran catcher. Either Lucroy or Wieters via trade.
  13. Mike Moustakas 2018 Outlook

    Because he's good at his job but an obnoxious attention whore. Loud personalities rub some people the wrong way.
  14. Mike Moustakas 2018 Outlook

    He has stat guys and has very vocal in using advanced stats in negotiations. I don't know how much other agents use them, but I'd be shocked if Boras isn't near the top. Moustakas should have taken the QO, but I don't think many agents recommend signing those. Gotta think that'll change going forward, but once he passed on the offer I'm guessing this is probably about as good as he was going to get.
  15. 2018 Bold Predictions

    I predict we'll discover the Yankees were also behind the JFK assassination and staging the moon landing.
