    Optimism for this season

    I can understand concern but I actually like the rotation upside. If the health is there I think this years rotation will easily outperform last year’s. Bullpen should be fine and offense will be middle of the pack or slightly above. WC game here we come!

    My New Favorite Person

    Help I thought it was Lackey all this time, though I do see Elway now as.well. Don't see Trout at all.
  3. Yes! That would give me a Trumboner!
  4. Perhaps Thais should get some time in right field, just for versatility.
  5. No problem, I’ll take two.

    Frank Robinson has passed away (RIP)

    I remember going to a game when Robinson was still an Oriole and my Dad telling me what he loved about Frank was his easy swing. We got there for batting practice and in those days it was easy to get close. So smooth and the ball would just jump! RIP.

    2018 Hot Stove League

    It fits- big bats and nasty sliders.

    What's up with all these 1-year deals?

    What would Stoneman do? Seem to recall a few years of, "we really like the guys we have."

    Craziness... 3 way trade idea?

    Because then you have the salary dollars to sign Harper? And a year of Arenado?

    Fletcher versus Ward

    I'm not seeing it as a straight platoon, as others have pointed out La Stella to this point has been more of a part-time player/pinch hitter. Assuming Cozart plays second, I think Fletcher gets at least half the starts at third and also spells Cozart (who does seem to miss a lot of time) as well.
  11. Seems to me like Fletcher will get more opportunity in 2019, but what do you think? Which is on the roster opening day, and which player is more valuable overall?
  12. Yes I can see that but seems like Bour plus La Stella lefty roles could have been combined into a single player, leaving a roster spot for the younger guys. On the other hand it looks like on of Fletcher or Ward will be a starter and they can always shuffled back to AAA to take turns. Maybe when Pujols goes on the DL Thaiss will get a shot.
  13. Not only that but will likely see 13 pitchers to start the year so there's no room. I suppose Ward has a chance to open the season in the bigs if he beats out Fletcher. I'm still scratching my head about the Bour signing especially so early in the off-season- that's not going to help Ward or Thaiss get any time for MLB.

    Bud Norris

    He made.$3 million last year, I imagine it would be around the same this year. Maybe 2 years $7-8 million for a multi-inning guy or closer if needed.
