They would find a spot for him in either category. He could do both, as he did in 2018.
They chose not to do that after the 2018 season. If they had wanted to do that now, they already would have done it.
I would prefer Keuchel, if he was better than he was against the Cardinals earlier this month. He's lefthanded and a former ace. Wheeler never has been an ace and isn't needed as much. Actually, neither one is needed as much as somebody who can deliver a runner from second or third base.
I wouldn't perceive that either player thinks those teams are close to contending for a division title. These guys like to win, too. They're already getting paid.
Check our his lifetime winning percentage--one of the best in history. He's had a team in the World Series and played in three consecutive NLCS. He won't do any better in KC, at least not yet, because his players won't be as good. He may have learned some things about handling people and bullpens along the way but his won-lost mark largely speaks for itself.
Those contracts won't restrict them as much as you think they might. For one thing, they may have more productive players on hand but they still need to bring in a hitter. And swallow hard, otherwise.
Interesting concept but Choo already is 37_ three-plus years older than Carpenter and largely a DH.
Either could be, in my estimation, perhaps as early as next year. Both have the pitches and Gallegos has proven his durability.
I must have been watching the defensive shifts.
With Gomber and the other two, plus Miller, I think they think they're all right. Cingrani will never pitch here. And then there's always Cecil. For one more year, there's always Cecil.
I see him turning up as an assistant pitching coach at the big-league level or a coordinator at the minor-league level. A lot to offer.
Good name to bring up. Perhaps he could be one of the backup infielders next year because he can play shortstop. And he showed improvement as an offensive player this past year, too.
I think they can find a leadoff guy, whether it's Wong or Edman. They need another hammer in the lineup to clear that table if it's set right. Eaton has looked a little better in the postseason than he actually is, in my view. The Royals didn't seem interested in trading Merrifield last year so I don't imagine it would be too much different now.
I easily can see someone (Knizner) who can be a third catcher as the 26th man. But they don't need to fix their bench. They need to fix their lineup.
Only if you get Monsanto to whip up a new batch of artificial turf.
Gordon might have some appeal but, again, you need somebody to drive in these people. Haniger would work better as a lefthanded batter. Seager is fading at 32.
I think the ratings have a lot to do with neither Los Angeles nor New York, both of figured to have a chance to make the World Series, being in said World Series. Things would look a lot different had either or both been in it.
This sounds like you ought to go to a radio-only mode, so you don't have to witness any of these malfeasances.
It would benefit him to be able to play three or four different positions five times a week. With that versatility, you might be able to carry another hitter who plays just one or two positions, or even a third catcher.
Depends on the price but I'm sure he would enjoy pitching here. Again, the bulk of this off-season money has got to go to offense. Their pitching is not a crying need.
That would be a compliment, at least on the latter. Pete was a bit tardy at times, too.
