  1. Well the Reds just released him and the A’s claimed him cutting Brandon Moss in the process. Either the Reds were trying to slip him through also just to build their system or they found out the real reason we released him? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Either this or misjudgment in thinking he wouldn’t get claimed are the only things that make sense to me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I think you are right, my bad. So the Reds could do what the Dodgers often do, claim someone who is unlikely to be claimed by other teams, release them, have them pass through waivers, and then you get to keep them in your system. Smart way to add to your system if you have the roster room.
  4. Surprises and disappoints me. I guess if they end up releasing him to try and pass him through we can claim him back as we now have the roster spot with Wood out for the year.
  5. I definitely agree that I would have DFAd someone else but there is a decent chance he won’t get claimed. Chargois from the Twins got through 28 of the 29 teams before getting claimed by the Dodgers who were the last team with a chance. Labourt’s extremely high walk rate (more walks than k’s) at least gives hope he will make it through waivers and be kept with a chance to continue to be developed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. 2 reasons. We would lose a 2nd and 4th round pick this year and 2) we would have to pay more than another team in order to sign him, so how would we be likely to land 1-2 prospects that are worth more than a 2nd and 4th round pick this year?
  7. You do realize that those 2 years of Prince cost the Tigers $78 million ($24 mil/yr + $30 mil sent to Texas). I don't know that that 5 WAR and 3 WAR is strong performance for $78 million. No matter how you look at it, it was a terrible contract. I'm sure it was Ilitch recommended, but it was a terrible contract.
  8. This is my thought as well, and seems to line up with how DD made a lot of his trades.
  9. From what I have read, it’s actually more than was predicted at the beginning of the offseason for Cain. To me it shows more of the blame for the slow market lies on the players/agents than they want you to believe. I know I wouldn’t want Cain at the end of that deal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Jd on a 1 yr deal?

    He already has a 5 year $125 plus million offer from Boston. You would have to give him at least $35 mil to get him to even think about a 1 year deal. No way we do anything like that for another Lugo/Alacantra/king potential return. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I think it's all but certain Cain, Moustakas and Lynn will get $50 mil+. They won't get the $80-100 mil they were hoping for, but I'd be shocked if they don't each get $60-80, which would still be a deal comparative to previous years. I haven't heard anything about them connected to him, but if I were the Yankees, I'd be signing Moustakas for anywhere in the 5 year $75-90 mil range rather than try and get Machado for the $250 or whatever he will be next year. I just think Moustakas would be a great fit in that ballpark. (It would also make me dislike them more as I don't like what I've seen/heard of him at all). It would also free them more to trade for a cheaper pitcher (like Fulmer :-) as they would only be counting on a rookie to man 2b.
  12. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't we also lose draft picks for Cain, Moose, & Lynn? And do those picks start with our 2nd pick (if we were still a luxury tax payer last year) or did we get under the threshold in 2017 with our trades? Either way, it is a greater cost than just $.
  13. They don’t. Just a way to take off $17 mil. Same way Atl didn’t want Gonzalez-and Dodgers don’t want Kemp. If they don’t take Victor, they give us $32 mil instead of $15 mil. Either way, I wouldn’t pay more than $11 mil over 2 years for Kemp and it would have to be a pretty decent prospect or 2 to be worth that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Kemp, prospect/prospects and $15 mil for Victor. Dodgers cut Victor. We end up replacing Victor with Kemp, adding $11 mil over 2 years plus a prospect or 2. Hope Kemp gets hot and maybe get another prospect or 2. Obviously the prospects have to be good enough for the $11 mil commitment, but I’d definitely be interested. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Kinsler to Angels for 2 Prospects

    I'm hoping 1 of the 2 H.S. SS shows themselves worthy of the #1.
