    How has Eppler performed so far?

    That’s great and all and by no means am I saying Simmons hasn’t been the more valuable player the last 3 seasons (it would be retarded to think otherwise). I’m saying when we’re finally ready to compete again it’ll most likely be Newcomb we could use a lot more than Simba. Had we been in the playoff race the last 3 seasons with Simba, it would’ve been a different story but we haven’t even been close. *So in hindsight and the purpose of this thread I just don’t know how you can justify this trade as moving Eppler a whole point up. That’s literally all I’m saying.

    Of course but the thread was made today asking to grade Eppler “so far”. In 5 years or hell in 1 year this could be a completely different story. Um as far as grade goes... 6? I like what he’s done with the farm, he’s had some prior contracts handcuff him but he’s also had some bad signings when he’s had a little freedom. Like I said, this off season and season will be his make or break. He’s been here for 3 years now, it’s time to see some results at the big league level.

    Reading comprehension, get better at it.

    That was THEN this is NOW and if we’re objectively grading Eppler you’re allowed to use hindsight

    Hopefully he ages well because we’re finally going to need him when he’s 31-32

    When the majority of your pitchers have a history of being injured... yeah it’s something you better take into account. I’m guessing you’re in the “we’ve had such bad luck every season” crowd too smh

    Two different scenarios. We drafted Trout. Trout is in a different world than Simmons. I have no problem with the Simmons move IF you’re going to actually try and compete but we didn’t. Eppler traded Newcomb and then went with a bunch of band-aids at other spots. If we’re going to objectively look back on it we gave up a legit starting pitcher to acquire Simmons. When it comes time when we’re ready to compete again, we’ll wish we had Newcomb over Simmons.

    “and the Simmons trade”? I really don’t know how the Simmons trade can be looked back on as a good one. We’re at least 2 seasons away from competing and we haven’t done anything with Simmons on the roster. Simmons only has 2 years left on his contract and he’ll be 31 turning 32 when his deal is up. Newcomb on the other hand has 5 years? Of club control left, is only 25 and is already becoming a legit starting pitcher in the league. Does Simmons make our team better? Of course but looking back we’d have been way better off keeping Newcomb. So imo you can’t pat Eppler on the back for this deal. If we were competing and making the playoffs during the last couple season with Simmons it would be a different story.

    Well considering he hasn’t had one season with the club playing .500 or better baseball it’s tough to say he’s done much good. This offseason and upcoming season will be his make or break. I don’t know how you can justify extending him if he has another season of below .500 baseball. He’s already been here for 3 years and we’re still roughly 2 years away from competing...
