    Actually I think in general your correct if perhaps not that directly ordered. Gardy should have been instructed to advance the rebuild and in so doing win as many games as possible. As for analytics I doubt either Al or Gardy give a rip what the fans think and therefore don’t make moves to appease the few of us that notice analytics. They know now only a winning team in the end makes both the fans and their boss happy.

    Its hard to compare Ausmus with Gardy. Brad had competitive teams built to make the playoffs and Gardy had a rebuild with a broken Miggy. When we get competitive again then we will know what Gardy does or does not bring to the dance. Starting Zimmerman opening day meant very little and was worth "hoping" it would show him as more valuable. Same as keeping Greene closer. Neither improved there trade value unfortunately.

    Every off season ,especially after bad seasons, we lament years gone bye. Its normal as we long for more baseball and try to forget poor campaigns. For me it was 1972 and 1987. Both had players left from championship teams fighting for one last title. Yes we lost the first round of the playoffs but those seasons started with more hope than promise and lasted literally until the last weekend of the season. Thats lots of Drama for a very long time. And memories that endure.

    He went from a big ballpark to a giant one with huge foul territory in play and that probably did not hurt either.

    Agree. Baseball is a long season and the longer they are relavant the better for sure.

    True but the A's , Cubs, Rockies and Indians all had way more fun this summer. Maybe not the Indians but the others for sure. Which is why being relevant is also important since only one team is Champion. Plus they will be watching trades and free agency with interest this winter.

    We don't know if Stewart will be good or not. September showings can be unreliable. Miggy could get hurt again. Besides Nick we have zero predictable bats. So if Nick agrees to split time between RF, DH and 1B is he worth 5 /50 ? And would he agree to that ?

    Then that should be Nick’s goal for 2019.

    Yes well done and very much appreciated. Thank you.

    Reading between the lines of Al's comments in the News article today he wants Nick C. to play first and will not extend him but wait until free agency and extend him a qualifying offer. Seems like the best way to get a reasonable extension rather than now when his agent will want to be paid for the bat without discounting for the glove. What would a contract for Nick look like in terms of length and dollars on the open market ?

    2019 Draft Pick Watch

    I suppose you are right but maybe tracking a 10 to 15 spot will be improvement ? One can only hope.

    2019 Draft Pick Watch

    So we have the 5th pick locked with a chance for the 4th pick tomorrow with a Miami and Brewer win. Either way not too bad but next year lets hope we do not need a thread like this.

    Still an adventure for Nick.
