    Cesar Puello DFA'd

    That's a different scenario then.....I just noticed he had some good offensive games in the last week or so....His pitching stats have been pretty bad, and limited, as you say....Would make more sense to keep Tovar if Cowart isn't on the 40 man...

    Really the move that makes the most sense....we aren't going to sit Fletcher or LaStella and continue to play Rengifo when Simmons gets back....Fletcher and LaStella will handle 2b and 3b (not sure who plays which position but they have earned everyday AB's)....Rengifo needs AB's....he won't get them in the bigs once Simmons is back....Tovar is a spare piece who can play all INF positions....he makes better sense than Rengifo, young guy who needs AB...the other option might be Cowart, who is hitting pretty well at SLC and can play all INF positions...

    Why would we do that, particularly if Goodwin continues to hit when he gets opportunities? Hermosillo was awful when he was called up last year....
  4. Me too....I’d like to hold this lead....

    Cesar Puello DFA'd

    Not 100% sure he’ll be claimed...I think he’d have to be placed on a major league roster, can’t be optioned by the claiming team to AAA.....25 man big league roster spots are a little different than a 40 man roster spot w/ options....
  6. Upton is back tonite....may have to DFA Goodwin or Puello today....

    Injury updates for Simmons & Upton

    Or, with Simmons back, play LaStella at 1b, keep Goodwin and Puello, send Bour down again and keep Tovar for INF depth...

    I think Harper’s contract will be considered worse than Pujols’, particularly given their ages when they signed...maybe as bad as Miggy’s....

    Cody Allen DFA'd

    Total mistake of a signing that would have been a bigger mistake had they chosen to continue to keep him on the roster. Harvey is likely next. I think Cahill gets a shot in the bullpen....he’s had success there before....

    Zack Greinke?

    Pretty good evaluation....but it's a lot of money to take on, even if Arizona takes on Cozart and eats some of Greinke's contract...It does remind me somewhat of getting Upton in 2017.....he had an opt out that greatly reduced his value but it was still getting a very good player at a cheap price.....didn't give up a great prospect.....difference with Greinke would be taking on a bunch of money, although we knew we wanted to keep Upton and would commit to a lot of money, as it turned out by revamping the deal....that's assuming Arizona would be amenable to that....they might want to eat money and get a good prospect or two...
  12. The time may have passed to move him and get a decent return....just not any consistency this year....

    Will they trade Calhoun?

    ^^^^ We don't know yet (nobody does) what effect eliminating the August 31st waiver trade deadline will have....

    Will they trade Calhoun?

    Doesn’t have to be Goodwin...in a perfect scenario, it’s Adell...if not, he can be replaced until Adell is ready....
