    Trade deadline banter

    After the draft this should heat up. Looking some stuff over. Joe seems to have faith in Lackey. Said John will challenge guys and some times he gets burnt for it. Opponents are hitting .270 against Lackey with an .833 OPS that ranks 72nd out of 85 qualified big-league pitchers. Last week’s...

    Should Almora play every day?

    Seeing how the team D just sucks in general, should they just start playing run prevention considering guys like Schwarber are not doing what they were meant to do. I'm honestly saying Happ in LF and Baez at 2B with Zo rotating them out. Then put Schwarber at AAA to figure it out.

    25 man roster

    I'm going with: SP: Shark, Jackson, Hammel, Wood There will be 4 off days in the first few weeks so I believe they will use Villanueva as a swing man until Arreta gets off of the DL. Pen: Veras, Strop, Wright, Russell, Rondon, Cabrera, Grimm Catchers: Castillo, Kottaras IF: Barney...

    Off season F/A

    Post here for guys that you feel would be a good fit for 2014. I'll start with 2 that I believe could be good short term assets. Nate McLouth in LF. He would platoon with Junior Lake. 2nd little controversial but bring back Byrd for CF. might catch hell but he did just hit 24 HR's last...
