  1. I think Jones deserves the promotion. He's closing in on 200 games and 800 PA at Double-A. He finished the season strong. Over the last 3 months of the season he hit .277/.350/.393, that was over 324 plate appearances so not exactly a small sample size. Not bad numbers for a 21 year old facing guys 2-3 years older. In comparison, as a 23 year old, Fletcher posted a slash line of .276/.341/.354 over 272 plate appearances before getting called up to Triple-A mid season. Depending on what happens with Simmons next year and if we trade Rengifo or not there is a chance Jones is our starting second basemen in 2021.
  2. We already have Steven Matz LHP Player A (2018-2019 Average) IP 157 ERA 4.09 H/9 8.5 K/9 8.7 BB/9 3.1 FIP 4.61 HR/9 1.5 ERA+ 95 WAR 1.7 LHP Player B (2018-2019 Average) IP 138 ERA 4.41 H/9 8.6 K/9 9.7 BB/9 2.5 FIP 4.21 HR/9 1.5 ERA+ 98 WAR 1.2 his name is Andrew Heaney
  3. The Angels have 2 games today, La Stella is starting in the other game
  4. Haven't read the thread, but I get why they would want more teams in the playoffs. If you're a casual fan you're more likely to watch the playoffs if your team is in it. Having division winners playing a 3 game series is dumb, but I wouldn't be against more teams making the playoffs. If more teams are added to the playoffs I would add 1 more, so a total of 3 wildcard teams. If you win your division you advance to the ALDS/NLDS (increase the DS to 7 games). Wildcards 2 and 3 play each other one time the day after the final regular season game. The winner of 2/3 plays the wild card team with the best record one time the next day. From there they can have the team with the best record choose who they want to play. In order to avoid playing into the middle of November I would get rid of the of some of the off days forcing teams to use 4 or 5 starters instead of 3 or 4. In this scenario there would be 12 playoff teams
  5. I don't see how if Maeda stayed Stripling would have to as well. Maybe if the Dodgers didn't end up getting Price they would want to keep Stripling, but if a Betts trade happens Price will almost certainly be in it.
  6. Pujols was good against lefties in 2019 (worse against them in 17/18). If he can replicate that in 2020 he would make a good platoon with La Stella (assuming La Stella plays 1B in 2020) Pujols vs RHP Avg .236 OBP .299 SLG .387 OPS .686 Pujols vs LHP Avg .261 OBP .315 SLG .515 OPS .830 La Stella vs RHP Avg .306 OBP .358 SLG .522 OPS .880 La Stella vs LHP Avg .265 OBP .315 SLG .398 OPS .712
  7. Actually I guess Nightengale doesn't realize Rengifo isn't a prospect. So Rengifo plus 2 prospects
  8. Now it's three? Quantity over quality? What about Pages?
