  1. That would be my story if I was him....maybe ask Brosius’ son for some advice on backpedaling...
  2. Shoulders are a tough deal....He'll probably get a minor league invite to ST....or not....he may want to go quietly into the night with his money...
  3. Yep...it was a good trade and I was dead wrong about it at the time....but we haven't taken advantage of it, unfortunately....at least not yet...
  4. Without Pujols’ salary, we could have lots of shiny new things....
  5. Wish we had a decent prospect pushing for PT but we haven’t developed a C in forever....hell, since Mathis and Naps....and neither was/is an every day guy...
  6. Castro is ok but he’ll need some help....I’m not real comfortable with Stassi...
  7. Wouldn't be a bad plan at all......but it takes money away from more pitching, if that is still in the works...neither Castro or Chirinos is a guy who you'd expect to be a workhorse and catch most every game....might keep them both a little fresher....two good catchers is never a bad thing....
  8. I think I read that Chirinos had a multi year offer....seems odd at his age...we’ll see...
  9. Castro fits Eppler’s profile better....but I guess it depends on other offers....we preferred Moustakas two years ago but when he (and Boras) wouldn’t jump in, Eppler offered Cozart quickly...
  10. There is just no perfect formula, except maybe having a strong farm where you grow your own, on at least a reasonably consistent basis.....Billy Beane does as good a job of finding the "right" reclamation projects as anybody---Bailey, Cahill (18), Anderson last year....many others.....but you can't count on that, even if you're as good as Beane....he's had a few Harveys and the 19 Cahill also....just has done a really good job overall at it....as has Tampa....
