    Dipoto vs Eppler

    Yeah, GMJ was Stoneman's last big signing. But the Sean Rodriguez for Scott Kazmir trade wasn't so great (Reagins.) Acquiring Haren wasn't bad, but he traded Corbin in the process (or, Dipoto - the DBacks Interim GM at the time - took him from us, however you look at it.)

    Dipoto vs Eppler

    So you're saying Tony Reagins was a great GM? 2007 94-68 2008 100-62 2009 97-65 2010 80-82 2011 86-76
  5. Good article. Baseball is secondary to that kind of stuff. Experiences are priceless.

    A note of gratitude to Eppler

    Why did you include Eovaldi in Eppler's "missed out on" list? He had similar career numbers to Cahill but was more expensive. And like Cahill, he hasn't done crap either this year. Unlike Cahill, he'll be making making $68 million over 4 years. And Lucroy hasn't been the greatest, but hasn't been crap either. And why didn't you mention that Eppler never traded Adell, Canning, Marsh, Barria, Thaiss, Walsh, etc.....? Eppler's made some good moves and some bad ones (esp. starting pitching). But to just focus on the bad ones and say he is a horrendous GM is stupid.

  12. I like Buttrey, but if they go with him as closer immediately, I just hope he doesn't turn into Jordan Walden.

    Cleveland saw the writing on the wall when they traded for Brad Hand and made him their closer.
