    Where were you when you found out?

    I was on a business trip to Philly of all places and woke up to the news! The day before I had been getting grief from colleagues in Philly who were telling me it was just a matter of time before Trout was gone. As you can imagine I was glowing the rest of the week and gently rubbing it in their faces.

    Fletcher versus Ward

    I see David Eckstein not Altuve. But heck I’ll take Eckstein.
  3. Hadn’t seen this posted, wonder what they would cost. https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/mlb-rumors-phillies-mind-set-entering-bryce-harper-meeting-two-teams-after-moustakas/

    Things have gotten quiet...

    Yes, it will be quiet for a while now I suspect. Perhaps a couple more small pieces. I suppose something like Darvish could happen but I doubt it. Honestly though, as much as the quietness kills me, (especially after such a flurry of activity), I keep reminding myself I've got nothing to complain about. For most teams, it has been quiet the whole offseason. Some have yet to make any significant moves at all. We've been the lucky ones and thus far it looks like we've done the most to fill holes and improve the team. If the season began today we'd be in a very good position to take one of the wildcard spots, and a dark horse to win the west. That being said...I keep checking the boards. Spring cannot come soon enough.
  5. Stanton would be a step in the wrong direction IMHO. Adding Stanton may likely inhibit our ability to extend Trout, and the benefit of adding Stanton is not as great as the benefit of filling the holes at 2b, 3b, and solidifying the farm. I would much rather have a more well rounded team. With Stanton you get a great player but not great value.
  6. I haven't really understood why this rumor persists. In his 60 minutes interview with Morosi (find it on youtube), Ohtani says pretty explicitly that Darvish has had a huge influence on him and that he would enjoy playing with him. He also makes it clear that he'd enjoy playing on different teams too because he'd like to be able to face him. Not sure I buy this prevailing rumor.
  7. I'd say package pitching and prospects for Hernandez, sign Moustakas, maybe pick up a relief pitcher and call it an offseason. That would be one crazy offseason.

    Angels Pursuing Ohtani

    UNBELIEVABLE! And gives Eppler so much freedom to do more! This could end up being our greatest offseason ever.

    An oblique reference to Tora! Tora! Tora! No?

    Maybe it's like in real estate when a call goes out for a "best and final offer" with a time window for all parties bidding.
  11. I don't think I like this rule change. I'm not sure how tight the reigns will be (since it seems that the rule has not yet been drafted), but I can't see how over the course of time this will not necessarily produce timidity in the running game, give a major advantage to the catcher, and change the decision making process at third base. It's called protecting the plate for a reason.
  12. It felt a bit like a playoff game. The bullpen was just gritty. While our offense seemed determined not to win the bullpen guys seemed more determined not to lose.

    Anyone else trying to watch this on MLB.TV? I can get audio but no video. Although it sounds like I might not want video of Vargas anyway.
