Good question. Bellinger and Buehler were two pretty good 'gets',' weren't they? And Seager, too.
I think it has to happen, if he is healthy when the season is over. Both shoulder and hand.
Not much available from the 25-man roster. But if you indulge in any sort of big trade, you have to risk trading somebody you might not prefer to give up.
You may be right unless you give up a couple or three of your prospects. And how long are you going to have the pitcher?
Starter, not necessarily reliever.
I'm a little loathe to give up O'Neill. The other two we could debate.
"Moving forward," is my least favorite. I have yet to hear anyone interested in "moving backward."
Fair question. I guess they feel need Bader's defense more than needed Wong's, especially at this later stage of the season.
All have some value but if I had to choose one for the next several of years, I would take Ozuna. I don't see a ready replacement for him. Anybody else could be traded and Ozuna, of course, could be a free agent.
That's what Shildt said. I would drop Goldschmidt, too, if I knew I had enough firepower to do that, but they probably don't right now.
I would be very surprised if Ortiz isn't in the Hall now that two DHs just made it in Baines and Martinez.
Well-stated. So Mo did do something right?
That's a lot of 203-hitting center fielders who can catch the ball and run. No.
I haven't heard any reports about Cecil's rehab in Jupiter. His remaining on the 60-day DL might help them maneuver their postseason roster better although they already have Hicks on it. I'm sure Cecil would want to pitch but I can't envision the scenario.
They need to see something from Reyes before the season or they are very likely to give up on him. This is three years now.
He may already be here in Edman. Carpenter is still here, though, and he's golng to lead off, at least sometimes.
I'm thinking wild-card may come in under 90, but not division title. I'm going to go under for now, pending what might happen in the next couple of weeks. Eighty-nine means 16 over .500 and they're an awfully long way from that.
Clemens and Bonds would make it before Bartolo Colon.
He is the best player at his position, more so than any other player at any other position.
