  1. Aside from specifics on how much of a "monster" Corporal Descalso is, if you have a really, really negative glove you could play yourself off the field in terms of value. I don't think Danny has done that, but he's not really a good defender for sure.
  2. Nothing better on my wire really, so I'm going to.
  3. I wasn't suggesting Peraza should be losing out to Senzel directly. You could easily stick Suarez back at SS and then let Senzel get occasional reps there as well. Point is, there is an INF spot open if they want him to get time. He doesn't have to take the spot directly though.
  4. Well, guess I should have expected that.
  5. Senzel might be able to play it, but he'd probably need some in-game reps before he could get the call. Fangraphs toyed with the idea in a post-DeJong world back before the season. I was actually thinking that Senzel could get called up to 3B, which would push Suarez back to SS. He's a pretty s--- SS, but if they want to start working on Senzel's development, maybe they do it anyways, defense be damned so that Senzel can get some reps around the INF at 3B, 2B and SS.
  6. I don't see why we'd assume Scooter would be the odd-man out here. If anyone loses playing time, it's going to be Peraza, who blows. And since he sucks so much, it wouldn't be hard for the Reds to actually find every day playing time for him.
  7. I think you mean June, those are his June numbers. It's really not that amazing when his season line still only stands at .273/.323/.412. He's having a nice month finally, but he's hasn't been tearing the cover off the ball like other frankly better prospects were (to say nothing of his fielding that still needs work). He'll get called up when he strings some consistency together.
  8. The AJ discussion isn’t necessarily wholly relevant to a Vlad discussion. We have people who seem to believe the injury is a fabrication. A large part of AJ’s complaint was about if they kept him on an injured status too long, but another part was centered on “where” the injury happens. Regardless, this is all hypothetical and silly. I see no reason to believe the Jays are going to do this, and I see no reason that Vlad would take it lying down if it did.
  9. I can't think of a case, because I think we've entered tinfoil hat conspiracy land of things that don't really happen. So I'm not really sure what we're supposed to be discussing with you asking for a "precedent" for something that would be outrageous, burn basically every possible bridge with an athlete/agent as well as future talent and probably be illegal. Service time manipulation sucks, but I also don't see any basis for claiming that the Jays are the kind of organization that makes up medical data to get out of paying a player. This isn't the Mets and the Wilpons,
  10. This thread has gone fully into tinfoil hat territory. There are two issues here. First of all, I don't see how a player is ever going to go along with a "phantom DL" stint unless it somehow benefits them. When we see it at the MLB level, it's going on with guys who can use breaks to cover for injury histories. E.g., your Rich Hill's of the world. Would Vlad benefit from this? Second, as many "phantom DL" stints as there are, these reports are still checked and reviewed by medical professionals at multiple levels. Given Vlad's elevated status, there's next to ze
  11. Reason #432,023,946 that we need robo umps. Egregiously bad. Not as bad as this call for the Orioles though!
  12. It's a lot of walks, and besides the Votto walks, a bunch of the calls seemed pretty borderline to me. Actually the calls both ways don't seem great.
  13. This is exactly how I feel. My format isn't as deep as yours, but still at this point I'd rather let someone else deal with him. If they get something out of him, at this point you just tip your hat for being brave/daring/stupid and move on.
  14. Castillo is done, and I'm done with him. Just a garbage, garbage, garbage pitcher. TINSTAAPP indeed.
  15. Wow, if that's the case and the limit is that low, that's a huge bummer.
  16. He had a pretty good night otherwise. I enjoyed watching him pitch.
  17. Better to take the guy out if you notice something wrong instead of letting him stay in and possibly injure himself a la Alex Reyes.
  18. Do we have any idea what the limit is around? I'm fine with playing guys that have limits if I can at least have some gauge of what I'm going to get from them.
  19. Mets don't deserve to have deGrom. They're such a dumpster fire. Get him on a team where I can enjoy watching him pitch in front of a competent set of fielders and hitters to back him up.
  20. He's already thrown nearly half of the innings he threw all of last year. I wouldn't be shocked if he's a little tired. Probably really looking forward to the ASB.
  21. I don't think people really understand how bad Chris Davis is with all these alternate "worst ever" deals being cited. A guy like Mauer might not have lived up to the expectations of his contact, but he's not worthless. These other guys signed fairly bad contracts, but they often still have some positive or arguable value. Maybe a guy's bat failed a bit, but they still at least offered some hitting ability or some plus defense, or some speed. Whatever. Chris Davis is actually worthless all around. On pace for the worst season ever? And honestly, almost no reason to beli
  22. Devers has sucked at fielding this year, but he just saved Beeks with that snag.
