Agreed. Don't make it easier for teams with more power hit more powers.
He could end up on the staff some day. It seems like he has a bright future, or at least he had one until the Padres' collapse.
It would be hard to imagine all six guys winning, so I suppose it could be easier to get overlooked while being in a crowd of six finalists.
The money part will be the issue here. I bet he lands in one of the giant markets.
I wouldn't go that far. If he eventually says all the right things about what happened on his watch he'll be forgiven in the court of public opinion.
Not sure any of them are a true ace, but Ray and Rondon are attractive for sure and Rodriguez could be a value addition. I have no opinion on one over another.
Those are all good names that get a lot of attention in these chats.
I can't imagine either guy leaving any time soon. I could see Armstrong retiring from this job some day and Mozeliak moving into more of an advisory position when he gets tired of the grind.
I would not bet on three more years of productivity. He is a warrior, but he's had to deal with a lot of stuff in recent years. He will try to pitch through anything, but he is only human.
That is the nature of the SEC. Fans elsewhere in the country don't want to hear it, but it's true.
I'll say over .500. They have some winnable games.
No, too many other needs there.
I still like the Astros. All that hitting, up and down the order, and now Atlanta's pitching is under duress.
OK, that's it for today. We'll see you next time!
