    Nut Swingers vs. Tin Foil Hats

    Before I even opened up the thread I thought of you first.
  7. Just needed to tender him a contract. He was projected to make about $4.3M or something close to that. Still surprised we cut loose on him, he was always a competitor. Spilled milk or something....

    Things we've learned from

    I have learned that I am good at analysis. Case in point: Justin Bour is young, fat Elon Musk This is why Musk's latest business venture is called the 'Bouring Company'. You're welcome for connecting the dots.

    Tommy La Stella

    To piggyback on Jeff's statement, defense sample size usually takes multiple seasons to stabilize, i.e. 81 games in defensive terms is a small sample. Like Fletcher (David and Jeff) but let's not crown him a Prince of the Universe just yet.

    This is just fundamental baseball.

    It's extension season!

    This isn't really that new, the Indians and Rays have been executing this extension strategy for years now quite successfully (e.g. Archer, Kluber, et al). It's just becoming more common place around the rest of the League.

    Come eat your crow

    Right about the player and even the length of the contract but definitely off on the total price ($500M vs. $426M). In the team's favor and that can only bode well for an Ohtani or Simmons extension (or both).
  14. I am not sure we should laugh that hard at that statement, it could very well be one minor reason why Trout wanted to stay, when you consider his relationship with Albert.
  15. Well they did get to the right number just not in the manner I thought they would.
