60-40 that it will have it. Somehow.
I can see five starters with some piggy-backing, at least early in the season.
If he is a starter, I can see 150 to 160 innings as a ceiling. He just has to show he can pitch for six months.
I don't think Carpenter's vesting option had any bearing on Arenado trade.
I would be astonished if 20 and 45 weren't part of the uniform fabric this season although 20 made it onto the uniform for a month last year.
Carlson and O'Neill are better than Fowler at this stage because they are younger. Hard to choose between the first two.
Dream on. What you've heard is what you're going to get.
Thomas does deserve a chance, once and for all, this spring and season. Then maybe we'll know whether he can play here or not.
The system is designed for cumulative fielding statistics. Let's say the third baseman fields a ball in right field that the second baseman would have had ordinarily. That's still an assist for the third baseman because he actually fielded the ball and it affects his percentage, whether he caught it o missed it.
If they both retire the same year (2021) they both could go in in 2027 (after sitting out five seasons).
McGwire trade turned out pretty well. But McGee deal might have been as good as Brock when you look at it. Broglio had a bit more success after leaving here than did Sykes, whom the Yankees got for McGee.
