  1. Astros claimed INF Robel Garcia off waivers from the Angels. Garcia was designated for assignment last week. The 27-year-old infielder can hold his own at several defensive positions and could offer some value in a super-utility role moving forward. Feb 27, 2021, 5:09 PM ET
  2. Not that it may prove significant...but in addition to his time at 2B, Robel Garcia also has some experience in both corners of the outfield...
  3. A lefty reliever with possible upside...anyone? https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/02/diamondbacks-designate-taylor-guilbeau-for-assignment.html
  4. Yes...his flexibility is/will be definitely a plus. Which, again...kudos to Minasian for his research. As with a few more of these type of signings (including Schebler as well), he may well escape the comparisons to Eppler. Who, himself...did have some success with this strategy &, likely, would have been better served following as opposed to the high-priced hope he pinned on the likes of Harvey, Cahill & Teheran...
  5. It is strange but it's even more odd that the Diamondback didn't feel he fit into "their long-range plans". But...kudos to Minasian for doing his homework. As these types of stories/situations are out there (like Carl Edwards Jr. who just signed with the Braves) that make terrific sense to sign to minor league deals.
  6. You are correct sir...he did misspeak. But, none-the-less...the signing is intriguing... Angels signed RHP Junior Guerra to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. The 35-year-old right-hander was released by the Diamondbacks in November after posting a 3.04 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 21/15 K/BB ratio over 23 2/3 innings during the 2020 season. Since moving to the bullpen in 2019, he has compiled a 3.44 ERA and 1.17 WHIP over 107 1/3 innings in 97 appearances. He should have a decent shot at landing a middle relief role in the club's Opening Day bullpen. 10:37 am (EST)
  7. Yes...& could more options, say, like Bartolo Colon or other "assorted peanuts" be added as well? But, of course...not to get anyone's hopes up...
  8. Apparently he & Callaway are not fans of one another. Now...if you'll excuse me (in keeping with the cheapness of this organization) I'm going to go & put my head into an Easy Bake oven... https://www.latimes.com/sports/angels/story/2021-01-27/angels-arent-in-on-trevor-bauer-still-improve-starting-rotation
  9. Well...apparently, because of some beef he & Callaway had in Cleveland...the "A" option isn't likely to materialize... https://www.latimes.com/sports/angels/story/2021-01-27/angels-arent-in-on-trevor-bauer-still-improve-starting-rotation
  10. Could be a good depth signing...maybe? Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that free agent reliever AJ Ramos has been drawing interest and will throw for teams on Tuesday. Ramos made it back to the major leagues, surrendering one run on four hits with three walks and one strikeout over 2 2/3 frames (three appearances), with the Rockies during the 60-game sprint season last year. He missed nearly two full years after undergoing shoulder surgery during the 2018 campaign. The 34-year-old righty owns a pristine 3.08 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 427/203 K/BB ratio a
  11. He was actually replaced by 5 guys who now take turns wearing his clothing lol...
  12. Right now it would appear he's on the same trajectory as Cole. You know...we talk & talk all off-season about acquiring said player until he signs with someone else...
  13. I hope this happens but, until it does...keep dreaming. Also...honest to God...some of you really need to keep it down or you're going to wake Perry...
  14. Very true indeed. But, given his struggles this season...the interest will come from clubs thinking they can "buy low"... https://metsjunkies.com/2020/11/11/mets-trade-target-jo-adell/
  15. He certainly is someone to consider. But, given what these international free agents have/can sign for (& the hit or miss "adjustment" risk/history they carry) I can see the new GM (not wanting infamy for a, potentially, early misstep) going for Wong/another who would be a safer/less expensive option.
  16. Finally...a "triggered" I can get behind...lol!
  17. Arrow pointed up? C'mon man...that's, simply, too sexually suggestive for "polite society" lol...

  20. Given how Canning limited one of baseball's deepest lineups to 1 run in 6 innings (while striking out a career-high 10 batters), I think he just took a major step to "riser" status...
  21. Maybe, in some sense, he's beginning to realize this. As he did say recently (when talking about retaining Eppler & winning) that maybe he should "fire himself". If he was serious (could we get the lucky lol) maybe that's where, somehow, Dombrowski fits in...
