  1. One of the announcers just casually mentioned that we almost traded Ward to the Dodgers in that nixed trade...did we know that? I don't remember seeing it anywhere.
  2. Funny choice - I would have only bitched about it in that thread. Now, instead of having one thread about it...EVERY thread is about that. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Such is life.
  3. Stripling open the game and gets 2 k's in one inning. Woulda been nice to have him somewhere out there today.
  4. Yeah, not moving on. Can we start a new threat every time either Pederson or Stripling do something good? As long as Arte isn't a dumbass, we shouldn't have many of those, right? I'm sure these guys are really just chumps.
  5. ^^Here we go, that's what I was thinking of. But, I guess if you're 30 pounds overweight, you can lose 14 and still look heavy haha
  6. This is a bit surprising - I could have sworn I saw someone posting about how he looked like he had lost a ton of weight heading into spring. I guess maybe "a lot of weight" - "a lot of weight" = "a still heavy dude".
  7. Right - and if that's the case, I'll be very quick to give him credit for being prudent here. But based on what we know so far, its not a great look. Fangraphs has officially changed our projections back to where we were at the beginning of this. We went from being projected to be the 4th strongest team in the MLB (between the Yankees and the Twins) back to being the 10th strongest team (between the A's and the Indians). According to their projections, you should expect the Red Sox and the Rays to make the wild card, with the A's pushing to get in, and the Angels behind them. Frustrating...
  8. Specifically Arte. The man child got his feelings hurt when he was told to wait, and he decided to nuke a deal that would have made the team much better. Even if there were other factors, the reporting clearly suggests that he wasn't willing to play ball to try to make it happen. His priorities are: 1. His ego; 2. The on-the-field performance of the Angels.
  9. Worth noting: Fangraphs predicts that we will be the best "non big-3" team in baseball. This assumes basically no contribution from Adell.
  10. Fool me once, shame on you; but teach a man to fool me, and I'll be fooled for the rest of my life.
  11. Dipoto. He'll trade away all of their prospects for basically nothing, and they won't be adding any big names for the next 2 years (due to the cheating scandal). By the time he is done with the system, the Astros will have begun their downturn, and will be rendered irrelevant for years to come.
  12. Seriously though, my bigger problem with the list is that they did it based on FA signings entirely and not on trades, so they could avoid showing Bundy (who would slot in around Lindblom on that list).
  13. Yeah, the Ringer seems to have the obviously correct take here. Like, you're running a pro MLB team, and you have two options: option 1. understand pitcher value based on a complicated and time tested sabermetric systems which account for performance and peripheral stats along with aging trends from similar players, or option 2. mulwin's gut "how did this guy look last year, and how do I feel about his injury history" system. There are problems with projection system, but they aren't gonna miss 31 times like that.
  14. I don't get this. Its like "hmm, you are doing more than any other player in baseball at the moment. Also, you keep getting injured. What if...hear me out. What if you did more?"
