    2018-19 Off-season Thread

    Agreed. However, one year from now there should be 100% clarity on where this thing is going, good or bad. When Avila has to go outside the org to add a player that is for the upgrade and not just a throw away guy, we’ll see what he’s got.

    I was glad when DD moved on. Beyond that I was pretty much neutral on Avila. I’m still in the wait and see camp but do have my doubts. At the end of 2019 it should be very clear if he’s the guy. This year was a throw away regardless.

    Always liked the guy after seeing him play in the minors a couple years. To go 5-5 in a MLB game will always be a pretty awesome accomplihment. I wish the guy the best.

    Interesting move by Giants to bring the Dodgers GM, Farhan Zaidi, to S.F. Didn’t know much about this guy until his name surfaced and I read up on him. Very interesting. Will be interesting to see what he does in the Giant’s front office.

    The Tigers should try and sign Manny Machado

    Machado = MS-13

    Oh, I knew. But I liked the fact they haven’t won the lottery.

    I would be interested. Saw him play in the minors with Cincy. Cincy hooked their wagon to Devin Mesaraco and should have stayed with Grandal. History suggests the same. Grandal was a switch hitter, don’t know if he still is.

    The Blue Jays just hired Charlie Montoya out of the Rays org. He managed the Durham Bulls from 2007-2014. They did well under him. He’s been with the MLB club since 2014. I believe the Jays got a winner in this guy. Dare I mention, he’s magic, he’s Puerto Rican!

    Totally agree. A 1-8 WS record is painful.

    Guys with endless money to spend should be successful. I would love to see his success rate in Tampa Bay and Oakland. I’m very confident he wouldn’t last under those budgets. DD left the Tiger’s organization in a poor position financially when he left. Bloated payroll with aging players. AA added to this mess out of the gate but the gurus finally realized it wasn’t sustainable.

    I was never a big fan of Leyland or Dumbrowski. Of all the checks DD wrote, he never did build a WS winner. There were always missing pieces.
