    Machado to Padres....

    Not a Boras client

    Machado to Padres....

    Machado was an overpay and there was no reason to given how long it took, he certainly is worth around 6 years 150MM but no team should be committing any more than that. I guess Boras must have brainwashed yet another owner.

    Machado to Padres....

    Here's one thing I don't understand. Why the f does it take till Feb 19th for the Padres to come to the table with this offer? It's not like they waited out the situation and got a smokin' deal. They paid full retail. If that's where they were willing to go all along, why not bring something close to the table 3 months ago? Are you really going to tell me that they decided to spend 300 mil at the last minute? I wasn't in favor of setting FA deadlines but this has changed my mind. The data doesn't change. The eval's of Machado don't change. Does it really take that long to go back and forth with offers? Machado was clearly looking for a particular number. Does it really take that long to get there if you were willing to go there?

    Machado to Padres....

    Good signing or not, it's hilarious to see butt hurt Dodgers fans today. I'm not sure why they're bitter when they knew he wasn't going to stay.

    Machado to Padres....

    Not necessarily. They play different positions and therefore aren't in the same market. The fact the Padres were late to the party for both parties show that the offers were not as high as GMs were expecting. I'm believing the reports that the highest Manny offer was by the Chi Sox at 8/250. I bet the Padres offer of 10/300 was available to both Manny and Bryce. Manny was the first to bite seeing that might be the biggest offer for either player. I still believe Bryce goes to the Phils, but the Phils may have the upper hand. I would be surprised if it's much higher than Manny's deal.

    expectations for Skaggs and Henaey

    I agree. I think they both will be really effective. Not as aces but as a 2 & 2. 190+ innings each.

    You understand the irony in you making a homosexual joke/reference as a defensive response to my comment to Lou?

    and Eaves isn’t a young player. I suspect he’s probably done in the league.
  13. I thought we were be hyperbolic. I like Knowles for a breakout but I agree he'll end up at IE. Still like Marsh and/or Jones to make a move this year.

    I think at this point any GM that wastes money on Patrick Eaves is absolutely out of his mind.

    expectations for Skaggs and Henaey

    It's not that rare. It's actually pretty common for SP's. As Strad mentioned, Skaggs was brilliant through 19 starts and then got hurt. the only thing that will hold him back is injury/innings. But 170ip with a sub 3 era is coming. He'll likely never be that workhorse guy who cracks 210-220 ip. Heaney is a #3. He might have a couple of #2 type seasons at some point in his career (I hope with us) where he has an era in the mid to low 3's or he'll just consistently give you innings and a sub 4 era.
  16. International Signing? AO is breaking out the aloe vera and kleenex right now
  17. I will give you Arol, but If I'm not mistaken, I was the first to predict a breakout from knowles and a top 100 appearance. Though you take it much further and predict a 3 level jump and finishing the season in AA. Predicting an 18 year old to reach AA after such relatively humble beginnings as an amateur is too rich for my blood. I think the swing and miss tendencies will prevent that. But I do think he will finish at inland empire.

    He is more likely to stand in front of Rage on Santa Monica Blvd for temp employment.

    expectations for Skaggs and Henaey

    Skaggs - 180 innings 2.90 ERA 190 K's. Developes into a legitimate ace. Negotiations on extension are kicked into gear. Heaney - 195 innings 3.45 ERA 185 K's. Is a true workhorse. Angels but out option years plus one year of FA. Harvey - 130 innings 3.90 ERA 140 K's. Starts the year off right, but ineffectiveness settles in mid May, is slowed by injury in June, comes back as a part of a bullpen game with JC Ramirez, Trevor Cahill and Suarez/Canning and thrives in that role in July and is traded in August. Cahill - 90 innings 3.20 ERA 90 K's. Is injured on and off for much of the first half. Eventually settles into a bullpen role, eating three innings as part of a bullpen game with Harvey, Suarez and Canning. Barria - 90 innings 4.50 ERA 70 K's. Gets knocked around to start the year before getting demoted and returning in August. Suarez - 50 innings 4.30 ERA 55 K's. Does decent in bullpen games and enters 2020 as a swiss army knife in the bullpen, serving as a lefty specialist, multi inning reliever and shot starter. Canning - 75 innings 4.10 ERA 70 K's. Stuff really plays up at the major leagues, though under developed out pitch will hold him back somewhat. Works his way into a long bullpen role midway through the year. Enters 2020 as the fifth starter. Enjoys a career similar to that of Trevor Bauer. 2020 rotation will be Ohtani, Cole, Skaggs, Heaney, Canning and they will win 90 games that year. In 2021 they'll win 98 games and the world series.
  20. I already staked claim on the Lindor comp. I would rank him 2nd though behind Knowles who is gonna move up three levels next year and end up in AA with a preseason top 10 of the top 100 for 2020.
  21. I haven't paid for the lifetime subscription (yet), so I understand that ads are part of the deal, to keep the board running. I have no issue at all with the ads that appear at the top of the page or ones that appear between posts. That said, I am becoming increasingly aggravated with the ones that appear at the bottom of the page and block about a quarter of the screen on my tablet and phone. They don't move, so I can't scroll last them. If I close them, as soon as I change pages, they are back. I assume that others are having the same experience.

    He could always stand in front of the Home Depot at 6 am with other unemployed libs. Then, perchance, he could be an employed lib for 9 hours (con lonch!).
  23. Badler did a segment of his top guys and this kid was included. I think there were only 10 on the list. I think any way you look at it, getting him is like getting one of the top 10-15 high school players in the draft. here's another video:

    Machado to Padres....

    look, I'm not saying he isn't a very good player, I just wouldn't put him in the great category.very few players make that grade, imo. that being said, I hope he does well in SD as they're my 3rd favorite team in MLB.

    and there were probably games that he failed in walk off situations. that being said, we're talking about making the WS, not the playoffs
