    Hubs got a reaction from Angel Oracle in Holy Hell, Trevor Bauer!   
    I actually ran a simulation and it’s very difficult to manage Bauer on three days rest and Ohtani on six. You often have to have a spot starter because no one from the regular rotation rest guys will be available.
     
    You can maneuver it so that Bauer doesn’t often pitch on Sunday, bumping Ohtani I assume but with days off he’s often gonna go on 4 days rest just so the other three or four guys get starts on somewhat consistent rest.

    Well Minasian said many times that he's going after starting pitching, but he's also saying the same things now as he did in his introduction presser with regards to run prevention. 
    I wonder if they may shift gears and go for Realmuto or trade for Contreras and just sign a couple of mid-tier SP's, while picking up another late inning bullpen arm. 
    Realmuto is a top notch defensive catcher who also provides above average offense from the position.

    If pitching every 4th day gives us maybe 38 or so starts out of Bauer and we get 20 out of Ohtani, then you only need 104 starts out of the other three guys, meaning you can almost get by with just Bauer as a free agent option, and count on Barria for the depth spot in the rotation.

    For the real and luxury tax payrolls he’s around 13. It’s not 18. I don’t really understand the logic of the full pay option without seeing the exact contract language. 
    Rasiel for $8.25 is a bargain. it’s gonna push up the price for Hand, Colome and other closer types like Bradley. 

    Sign Jose Alvarez and Justin Wilson. Take a flyer on Blake Parker again?

    13.5m over four years.  He might not play that 4th year for them and if he doesn't, they don't owe the 15m all at once.  They are paying him 13m per in each of the first three seasons.  It's not 54m + 15m.  
    It's a slightly more creative way for the team to give him a 4yr deal yet have a way to defer some cost of the contract should he fall apart by the end.

    Upton is only 33. You all act like he’s nearly 40. 
     
    By next mid season, two of Marsh / Adams / Adell will be in the OF at least most of the time. 

    I don’t think we’ll see Adams until the following year (23).
    Marsh and Adell have played a collective 38 games in the Majors (Adell) 43 games at AAA, 139 games at AA. Adams has played just 9 games at High A. 

    They can afford to trade one for pitching.

    Hubs got a reaction from ten ocho recon scout in Victor Rojas Appreciation Thread: Resigns as Angels play by play announcer   
    I liked Phys and Hud, I know I’m in the minority.
    Rory was better on the radio but understand why they switched him over, he and Terry sounded too similar.
    And While I think Gubicza has great points and a good eye for the game, I also can’t stand him some times. Like when he roots for the Phillies openly while also doing the commentary for the Angels.
    Victor was great for us and I’ll miss his familiar voice on the broadcasts. There was nothing I didn’t like about his style or personality.
    I do think they should hire someone with Angels ties.

    Well this sucks. Terry shouldn’t move over bc he’s 65. Not everyone wants to announce into their 70’s and 80’s the way Vin did for the Dodgers.
    I hope they’ll get someone good and that eliminates Jose Mota. Maybe they move someone over from the pregame show but most of those guys are not play by play voices. Don’t know if they can do it or not.

    with victor out, i'd replace the whole booth, not a fan of gubi. 
    and i agree with the consensus, victor was good at his job. bummer to see him go, but i'm not surprised he definitely has other interests he's pursuing. i wonder if his apparel company was seen as a bad look after the dodger's championship? i wouldn't be surprised if that was an issue behind the scenes.

    get Bauer at 20m in his first year
    one year deal of 8-9m for Quintana which give Sandoval, Rodriguez, Barria, Detmers and maybe Suarez to establish themselves for next year.  I would also consider doing an option year or even a second year for Quintana.  
    sign Bundy to an extension.  
    wait for the rest of the chips to fall in order to finish off the rest ie another pen piece and maybe a guy like flowers or Suzuki, as well as a lefty platoon bat in RF.

    At this point they need to sign Bauer and then move on to whatever else they can get, even if that’s Jaime Barria in the fifth starter spot. (Bauer, Heaney, Bundy, Canning, Barria, Ohtani) is a good rotation, maybe the best in the AL West if they all stay healthy.

    I'd say this establishes that bigger financial obligations will not return excessive amounts in prospect capital.
    The Mets took on a lot of salary with this trade, and gave up a bunch of serviceable pieces but no one of note besides Gimenez, who is basically not as good as Fletcher, with more control. We don't have an infield prospect that would be worth similar value, but this is basically less than Marsh, more than Adams in Value. Something like the combo of Sandoval and Detmers or Adams and Jackson.
    That being said, taking on Castellanos is a non-starter for me based on his defensive skills, but I would be willing to take on Moustakas's deal in return for some similar prospects, in order to get Gray and Stephenson from the Reds.
    This would likely cost Adams and Sandoval, and then pieces like Rengifo, Thaiss, etc. Or Minor leaguers with similar values like Jackson, or Paris.
    Moustakas would have to play some 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and maybe OF. Fletcher would play more OF obviously.
    Gray helps the rotation, and Stephenson obviously slots in at Catcher.
    I think the Reds would have to kick in $10M over the next 2 years, so they could get a better prospect return.
    Hows this potential deal?

    Pena gave up 5 of his 12 runs in two starts against the Astros in September.
    He had two blown saves and of the 12 runs and a few were other pitchers allowing guys he let on base to score.
    I’d say he was a competent reliever in a year where so much was terrible, but he really only had two bad games. He was pretty effective.

    Pena, like Canning in your Rotation article, is definitely starting in the Majors. 
    I understand they have options and that’s useful but they’ve also established themselves as productive major league regulars and they will be on the Opening day roster.
    Pena is also likely Higher on your pen hierarchy.
    Iglesias - Closer
    Mayers - Setup
    Buttrey - Setup
    Pena - Setup/MR
    Reyes - MR
    Claudio - MR/ Specialist
    Rivera - Long Relief

    Bard / Keller / Quijada  / Sandoval all have a shot at that last spot, but most likely they and even possibly Reyes start in AAA, as they all Have options.
    Barria is in the rotation right now. If not in the rotation and not traded in a package for a more established starter, then he could factor into the pen but his role would be TBD.

    At some point, I guess we just have to realize that this guy is a troll. 
    Bauer hasn’t made his decision and I’d say the two front runners are Mets and Angels. Jays are third. He’ll make up his mind in the next 2-3 weeks.
    Happ may make sense to some, but not to me, and not as the top free agent starter. I’d rather start Barria.

    In a AAA outfield of Marsh, Adell, and Adams who lines up where? Who’s the best defender?
     
    I doubt we’ll actually see this bc I expect one to be traded and there are other OF in the system, but I see Adam’s being hyped and Marsh was supposedly the best defender of the three while Adams is the best athlete, but all three are athletic. 
     
    In Anaheim, all three can play CF, all three can play LF, and marsh is likely the RF of the bunch, Adell clearly needs work there.
