    Gameday Thread: Royals @ Angels 5/17/2019

    Starting to wonder if maybe we're planning to use Walsh in the bullpen today and that's why he's not starting at 1B.

    Jared Walsh appreciation thread

    Looks like he's sitting for Pujols already.

    And you seem to be an asshole. I had seen a lot of other posters say that but, being new to the site myself, I wanted to give you a fair shake. You start a thread wanting to start “discussion” but you ridicule everyone who disagrees with you and resort to insults when you can’t think of an argument. There’s no sense trying to debate something with someone who clearly has no interest in debating.

    But my argument was that it wasn’t good when he started? Please stop with the strawman.

    I didn’t deny him trading away prospects with good potential. In my original post I said that the Mariners farm wasn’t good when JD started his tenure as GM. That’s a fact.

    Your argument to the Mariners farm being good was that players he traded away ended up being good in other teams’ farms? Not sure that’s how that works.

    Yeah, how could I possibly live with the fact that someone has a different opinion than me?

    Have you paid attention to the Mariners at all? Their farm system wasn’t good when Dipoto started, and the reason they aren’t good now is because Dipoto tore the team down in favor of rebuilding the farm.

    We can’t blame him for not exceeding the budget but we absolutely can blame him for the way he used the budget he was given

    Dipoto vs Eppler

    Right now I’m going to say Dipoto simply because we had an outstanding season under him and made the playoffs (playoff failures aside) and had another +.500 season, whereas we have yet to reach .500 under Eppler. If Eppler’s plan works out I have no doubts he’ll overtake Dipoto for me, but for now I have to give it to the guy with the results.

    A better comparison to make would be to leave out all of the moves that weren’t heavily influenced by Arte’s demands. Impossible to tell which moves were and weren’t but I think it would tell a better story of who the better GM is.
  13. Should get a nice return for him at the deadline. As good as he's been he won't be needed with all of our young infielders coming up.

    A note of gratitude to Eppler

    He has made plenty of moves that look good on paper. What he hasn't done, is led a team in a big market, with one of the top payrolls in the league, and the best player in the league in his prime, to a record at or above .500 in what is now going to be 4 seasons. Sorry for finding his track record underwhelming?

    You know Eppler's done a godawful job when people are praising him for routine cuts.
