    Puig

    Guys, I think I started a "Puig vs. Trout: Who ya got?" thread one time. I'll excuse myself now.

    Servais > Scioscia

    Scioscia has his strengths and weaknesses, like anyone else. He's a great "player's manager" in that he really has their back. He's a great clubhouse manager as well. His pre-games are light, fun, optimistic. His team building exercises during spring training is the stuff of legends. He has a good rapport with MLB umpires and the commissioner's office, which can't hurt. He handles the media really well. But his weaknesses are the same they've always been. Not as open to deploying prospects as he should be. The worst bullpen manager maybe ever. In game tactics are questionable. His personnel choices are at times, laughable. As far as managers go, he's ok. Not good, but not the worst either. And Servais, we don't know what sort of manager he is. Decent first season in Seattle. He's meeting expectations. He and Scioscia don't like each other.

    Twins acquire Santiago

    I think people know you are not getting a good, top level prospect for Santiago but alternatively people are not going to be thrilled when you take on an older, worse SP for the chance of a 26/27 year old injured faded prospect to realize the potential that has never really shown signs of surfacing. It sounds highly unrealistic to expect a return on that gamble when the guys' own drafting franchise doesn't see a need to hold on to him. There is desperate but hopeful and there is THIS.

    2016 Trade Deadline Analysis

    It doesn't take a baseball guru to know that when our pitching gets healthy in 2018/2019 that the team will benefit immensely. Meanwhile, you can't just sit still and wait for that to happen. Our offense can already compete with any team in our division. You add another impact bat in the off season and we might have one of the best offenses in baseball. Our bullpen has potential for next season with the emergence of Bedrock, Guerra, and Ramirez. I also expect Street to get his act together next season. Now somehow we need a starting rotation. Skaggs, Shoey, Nolasco, Meyers, and Smith is a good start. If Richards and Tropeano go under the knife ... then we'll need to acquire more arms. We may not crack .500 still ... but getting young prospects like Meyers and Castillo was a step in the right direction.

    Heyman on Pujols signing

    There are bright sides to this season. Trout, Calhoun, Escobar's BA, Pujols' run production, Simmons' defense and July hitting, the emergence of Bedrosian/Guerra/Ramirez in the pen, Bandy behind the plate, and Skaggs' return featuring two very good starts

    Smith's got a year of control still -- and let's be honest...... he's better than Joe Smith. This is better than the return on Downs a couple years ago. I can understand being chapped at the Santiago trade but, this isn't a bad return for Smith. Honestly -- seems like getting back UNDER the cap was at play... Being under this year means if they go over next year they won't face bigger penalties. Not that it matters, I think you guys are right and Arte is keeping his checkbook holstered.

    The only way this makes any sense is if Hector demanded a trade. But even then he's under club control so fuck that. I'm literally baffled right now.

    2016 Trade Deadline Analysis

    I am viewing it realistically. He's got a tremendous arm yet he's 27 and hasn't been able to figure it out. Maybe because of injury. Maybe because he's just not good enough to. Being a starter has caused him shoulder problems which he is still dealing with so calling him a starter is not realistic. If he had the body type to sustain a heavy workload, why hasn't he? He's got 479 ip in his 5 professional seasons. There are red flags all over this guy. I am not focusing on this stuff because I want this guy to fail. In fact, it's the complete opposite. I am focusing on it because we gave up a major league avg starter with another year of control for this guy. But what's done is done. So I'll sit on a horseshoe and root for Alex Meyer

    Need to see a little more out of Ramirez and Guerra before I believe that they're "fixed." That said, no denying solid results in limited use.

    I never mentioned the 1st amendment. I was just noting that he didn't toss out a few bad journalists but banned their entire news organizations. And for fucks sake can anyone ever just once answer a question about Trump without the answer involving Hillary? Or vice versa?

    Unfortunately, I agree with Lou. If someone just writes hack pieces against you, why even let them into the dance. Especially when specific writers have agenda's against you. I'm sure Hilary also has her list of blacklisted journalists.

    "Clinton claimed that Comey 'said my answers were truthful, and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people." What an incredible piece of shit. If Trump said this, red and the rest of the Hillswingers would be all over it. Their silence just proves the hypocrisy of Clinton supporters. (I feel like I should be paying someone a royalty for this.)

    Twins acquire Santiago

    Trade still sucks. You got a 33 year old that can't get anyone out. You have to go back to 2013 to when he was any semblance of an average pitcher. So I figure him to be a Lincecum like player next year. Meyers also sucks. Shoulder injury + Angels = done. More than likely, he will be moved to the pen. But the 1.30 career minor league WHIP means the control isn't there. In the end, I think this was part of a purge. Eppler is getting rid of everything Dipoto. I would not be surprised if he trades Skaggs, if he clears waivers, and gets a haul if he continues to pitch well.

    JC Ramirez: 2.45 ERA with Halos

    Yeah, they both are Scotty. I guess we've paid for them, might as well use them for now. Certainly by September 1st we should see some of our minor league talent up here for the last month, and then maybe Salas will be released.

    I'd be fine with Puig, but I don't see the Dodgers seeing low on him. That's probably why he wasn't traded.

    It has to be Arte

    Even if Arte isn't actually meddling in specific deal, which I don't think he is anymore, I think he has set the team's philosophy and requires his FO staff to follow it. At no point is the GM allowed to make moves that would indicate any sort of concession for the following season. We play to win every year. Season ticket holders are much easier to keep than they are to find. We will make moves this off season which will, again, make us to maybe, kinda, sorta competitive if everything goes right. It's all about perception. We will never create one that makes fans think we are not playing to make the playoffs.
