  1. I have thought that was the more likely scenario all along....we’ll see....
  2. I'm not sure. We don't what the market is. The Jays were certainly in the mix but are they after Springer? Are the Mets? Maybe. M's? Maybe.....we just don't know.
  3. Would fit nicely, along with a trade for Musgrove or Gray.....
  4. Very good points....I guess what I’d like to see, at least sometime, is a Mike Minor or Lance Lynn (both Rangers) or maybe Jake Odorizzi type signings...mid level (2/3 years), good evaluation type deals.... I realize Eppler had some constraints and “good evaluation” is easier said than done but if you could offer Cole or Wheeler, you could have made a good 2/3 year signing without resorting to awful one year high risk guys like Harvey, Teheran or Cahill....
  5. I thought about CJ....I guess you would say he was ok, barely....1 really good year on a 5 year deal (2013)....2012 was ok, 2014 wasn't very good, 15 was ok but shortened by injuries......nothing from his 5th year....
  6. When was the last time we signed any FA pitcher that you could say was a good signing?
  7. For 2 years, then he was toast and Stoneman made the best trade ever to get rid of him...
  8. Vlad, because it just seemed like he fell in our lap...and you knew it was going to make us a lot better...and it did...Vaughn and Albert didn’t...Vlad was still in his prime, they weren’t...
  9. I guess it depends on how you define “mid rotation”....Washburn might have been a #2 in 2002, bordering on a #1, but he wasn’t as good after 2002....Lackey was a rookie but he was really good down the stretch and in the postseason, maybe a #2 at times....Appier was solid but he faded a bit late....Ortiz was good overall but pretty inconsistent, hard to peg him, maybe a #3....I think if we add Sugano and maybe trade for Gray (?), we’d be fine...my opinion only....
  10. I thought he would be a good get for several reasons---no loss of a draft pick or prospects primarily---but you have to roll with Minasian on this....if he is overpriced and there are better value deals to be made---either FA or trade---move on...
  11. Will be an interesting and busy 6 weeks....
