SIAP, but looks like the Giles trade has worked out so far for both sides.

42K and a 1.08 ERA in 25 IP. Only one BS and has only given up a run in 2 of 25 appearances. Probably not a coincidence that they just put him on the 10 day DL for a sore elbow to avoid an epic meltdown this weekend.

So let me see...Giles has rebounded, Stroman is on the block, we need a BP arm and a starter and TOR is the only viable trade option for Yuli.

The writing is on the wall boys.

why you don't sign players to mega-long-term contracts...



You could say the same thing about Altuve, but not a lot of other ways to get (or keep) a reigning MVP. I don't think he was going to go for the 3-year deal. He had also played 159 & 158 games the previous 2 seasons, so it's not like he's Glass Joe Correa.

Yankees will make the playoffs regardless, so whether it was a good deal or not depends 100% on what he does in October.
I'd say there is a significant difference between 163.5 over 7 years (5 year extension) vs 325 over 13.

Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way...congrats Caveman Bidge and all that, but from here on out, take it to the Blue Jays thread.


Yep.


You are.
Anyone with me yet or are we still fanboying?
Harry Dunne
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Definitely, but also a huge difference between the Yankees budget & ours... and in both cases the value of the deal will be determined by championships.

My main point is that you don't get or keep MVPs without long contracts and a lot of money spent and even if the deals end up being a little cringe-worthy on the back end, that's part of the cost of going for it.

No it won't

It'll valued on production of those players

Is there some extra butt hurt here for a reason I'm not aware of? We seem to be all about drafting anyone remotely related to someone currently or previously on the team. Did we pass over Biggio's kid and he's pissed about it? Or is this him just trying to get himself extra rev'd up for the game

ETA: It seems like this would have been a good opportunity for a "I grew up with the Astros, but I'm with the Blue Jays and I want to do whatever I can to help our team win" type of quote. Maybe I'm just reading too much into a twitter quote.
Harry Dunne

It will be determined by the production of those players toward championships, if they don't play 160 games but they show up in the postseason no one is going to be scrutinizing games played.

Unless you are a Rangers fan and you think that's how Odor is going to make the Hall of Fame.

Maybe, he didn't go till the 5th. That was a crappy draft year for us as well. But at the same time, if there was the thought that he would be in the majors this soon, where would you put him? He would be riding a bench and that would be a disservice to him as well. Seems like a no win.

I don't have a problem with this. He's just being youthfully candid. He should want to sweep the series, just no reason to tell it to the press.

I took it as :

Question - Any thoughts on playing your father's former team? (the one you grew up rooting for)

Answer - (my interpretation) I want to win these 3 games against them for my team.... even if I grew up rooting for them.


But then again I only read the one quote.

I read it as, I hope they lose against my team, but go undefeated otherwise.

I like Reddick a lot, and maybe it was just a bad stretch, but you can't go 0-fer in the leadoff spot 2 games in a row.

Here's to him getting back on track tonight.

Not that hard to do when you make millions of dollars a year.
There are several people on this thread that would need a lot more than money to land a dime.

Seems like every guy is going underneath slot value

What is our negotiating leverage to get this to happen like this

similar to Altuve...once Reddick starting hitting home runs, he seemed to get away from his very successful April-May approach
