  1. The Official 2017-2018 Hot Stove Thread

    I don't disagree...Eppler put together a really good pen with virtually no money last year....but I guess my concern is whether he can he do that again....lightning in a bottle and all that....
  2. If he makes the rotation, it would squeeze things.....probably mean moving a couple of those other guys (if everybody is healthy)....Don't think any of those other guys have options....Ramirez does have bullpen experience but he was better as a starter........
  3. Best SP prospect in the system since Richards? Shoe was kind of a sleeper that came out of nowhere I guess...
  4. Astros acquire Gerrit Cole

    He was pretty composed in game 7.....
  5. Astros acquire Gerrit Cole

    It would be tempting....but that's a lot of money tied up....
  6. Astros acquire Gerrit Cole

    Depends on how good Ohtani can be and whether Richards is back to the Richards of 2014/5.....
  7. Angels Sign Catcher Rene Rivera

    You would think they would have already traded Perez if there was much of a market out there....but maybe they wanted to wait until they had a Rivera type signed.....same with Cron.....may hold on to him unless they pick up a 1b/utility type guy.....
  8. Angels Sign Catcher Rene Rivera

    Maldanado wore down last year....Rivera gives Scioscia a chance to rest him more....
  9. I'm just glad we have him.....lots of question marks with the other guys....depth is a good thing.....
  10. The Official 2017-2018 Hot Stove Thread

    Pretty cheap, it seems....
  11. Little bit odd to be a “prospect” at that age (29) but because of the Cuban background, a different deal....I like it....
  12. Dump Valbuena

    Don't disagree but the problem arises if Albert starts hobbling (again) and can't play 1b....Whether you want to get Ohtani in the linuep 2/3 times a week (which makes sense) or not, if the guy who is owed 100 million (give or take) can't play anywhere but DH, that could be a problem....we'll see...
  13. Dump Valbuena

    He hits for power, which is reflective in OPS, but he still sucks....in my opinion....
  14. Dump Valbuena

    I didn't necessarily mean they give up on him as a pitcher (that is still his position, in the mind of most scouts) but what if struggles some as a pitcher is really good as a hitter, maybe really good, in the spring and early in the season....and Albert struggles at 1b....you're not giving up on Ohtani as a pitcher but you'd like to get him in the lineup as a hitter while he figures it out as pitcher...Dunno...
