  1. On the flip side of the coin it will be a massive boon for the sport if they make it happen and get on the airwaves, TV audiences are hungry for fresh content, could attract a lot more fans
  2. The current public response is 100% logical. Effective flattening the curve strategy requires extreme measure BEFORE the virus infects the many millions it is capable of very quickly spreading to. I am still hoping we get a partial baseball season in some form or another.
  3. Now that the enthusiasm of his September ‘19 performance has worn off I might be looking to try to grab him dirt cheap, knowing I’ll have to bench him to start the season and hope he forces his way into the lineup. I still like the skill set, positional versatility, and lack of premium talent standing in his way. Easy enough to cut him if it doesn’t work out
  4. If memory serves he was a 1st round draft pick and then had a really bad knee injury, possibly of the “will never be the same again” variety. So it seems like the talent is there but staying on the field for a whole season is a question mark
  5. Batting leadoff = maximum at bats Bring it on!
  6. No love for Luis Arraez? I’d take him over most of those Tier 5ers
  7. Nice list! I’d probably have Bryant and Meadows swap tiers, seems like Meadows still has things to prove like 2 of the other Tier 4 guys he’d be joining, K Marte and Jimenez
  8. I personally still ding him a little and would take Betts and Lindor ahead of him (in addition to the “big 3”) only because he came back down to earth in the 2nd half of 2019, including a hint of vulnerability vs lefties that earned him light platoon treatment in 2018, so the sample size isn’t quite where I want it to be just yet.
  9. Yes I would be floored, they gave up a top 50-75 prospect to land him, and Gallen has tons of trade value. Look at Gallen’s numbers in the PCL last year!
  10. I didn’t say he has nothing left to prove as we sit here now ... again, I was addressing earlier comments expressing a view that Joc presents a season ling barrier regardless of what Adell accomplishes in 2020, to which my counter point is if Adell forces his way into the lineup (a possibility that could occur early with a strong spring) they have plenty of other options for getting Joc’s bat in the lineup against righties... please try to pay attention
  11. Right, that is why I said Joc is a contingency plan in case Adell needs more seasoning... as contrasted with others’ point of view that Joc represents a season long barrier no matter how great Adell plays in ST and AAA (P.S. Adell had a PCL game where he went 2-2 with 2 HRs wiped off the stat books due to rain out that would have boosted those #s quite a bit given the small sample size)
  12. There are many, many paths to keeping Joc’s bat in the lineup that don’t involve keeping Adell in AAA when he has nothing left to prove there
  13. I see Joc as more of a contingency plan in case they genuinely feel like Adell needs to marinate in AAA a little longer - given Adell’s truncated 2019 - but in no way a barrier. Everyday job will still be there for Adell to claim on opening day or Super 2 at latest with a strong spring.
