  1. It's good he got a draft pick, no doubt the high floor low ceiling college player they bring in will make for a fine RP ... But after the money was exchanged and players were sorted out they acquired the older player who will cost them 25 mil this year for the younger player costing 35 mil over two years.... They likely move Encarnacion now, but who needs a 20 mil DH... Not the Yankees, not the Red Sox....

    Actually the guy you're responding to was very vocal about the pen being a potential dumpster fire. Most people were upset they largely ignored the pen in the offseason. Say what you will, with few exceptions last year's marquee free agent RP class ended up having awful seasons. Morrow was probably the best of the potential closers and he broke down early. It was like a case study in RP volatility

    Exactly, it's the value of the dollars more than the player itself. The Angels having had success with that pick is gravy.

    Tell yourself whatever you want but that's not how it works. Eppler was VP of Baseball operations in charge of pro scouting. Tim Naehring took over his role in NY and despite his having been the Cincinati Reds farm director he isn't involved in any amateur draft decisions either.

    It seems the Angels have a plethora of pachyderms....

    Eppler wasn't involved with the draft while with the yankees.... He ran their professional scouting dept... He was involved in them getting Colon, Chavez, Freddy Garcia, Russell Martin, etc etc....

    I realize this wasn't directed towards me and I'm not saying he will improve at home but a 100 at bat sample means absolutely nothing.

    So, I checked.... Ausmus' starting catcher averaged 112 games during his stint in Detroit. Franchise over!!!

    He tended to have two good defensive catchers in Detroit -- but even in years where one guy was better with the bat he stuck with the better defender... It's also worth noting that like MS, he was a catcher - only where MS was a league average hitter and above average hitting catcher Ausmus was pretty much a glove first guy. Career OPS+ of 75

    If you take defense into account then Grandal is a world better. Second best framer in MLB behind Mathis, where Ramos is pretty consistently below average.

    You were on a roll.... Nobody on a roll has time to hassle with details! I approve.

    Matt Harvey made 5.5 mil -- no way he should cost 10 mil and if that's his asking price you walk away.
