  1. Franmil Reyes was there to take without giving anyone up. Unsurprisingly, Avila took the wrong Reyes in the rule 5.
  2. Boston has nothing of value for Boyd. That said, Avila's stupid *** will probably trade Boyd to Boston...
  3. This is the most likely outcome.
  4. Unsurprisingly, Al took the wrong Reyes in the rule 5. The other one is 6th in the NL in HRs.
  5. You can just write him off at this point.
  6. Having no one that can hit is a sure way to lengthen the rebuild.
  7. Assuming theyre available and want to sign here...
  8. It makes shopping Boyd even more necessary. He is their only shot to get an impact bat(s), as they have none at any level. Greene might be one in 4 or 5 years, but who knows. IF your rebuild is largely centered around pitching, its probably not going to end well. And if their plan is to add one potential impact bat a year via a top 5 DP, its probably not going to end well either.
  9. I made plenty of posts back in 2015 about how JD absolutely needed to be traded. I was the only one. I made posts back then about how JV needed to be traded. There's no hindsight 2020 nonsense here. The obvious moves were obvious. Al didnt make them. Here we are.
  10. Avila is terrible and I have no idea how anyone could defend him or anyone else in this front office/scouting dept. Avila, Chadd, Pleis...these guys have been here forever and they have an innate ability to not find talent. Their track record for finding and developing homegrown players is laughable and indefensible. Ill give them credit for drafting Manning, but thats it. Taking the clear and obv BPA, Mize, #1 doesnt deserve a pat on the back. Also, being 2 years too late trading JD. Not trading Fulmer for Cease and Jimenez when offered. Luckily for him he gave up little in the Cubs trade, but Candy is garbage and Paredes has been pretty underwhelming this year. Waiting too long to trade JV(should of been shopped after 2016) which only netted them a couple marginal impact bats and pitcher that is an injury waiting to happen. Not to mention, all the garbage FA signings over the past 4 years. Its obvious that Boyd and Greene need to be traded, but I have 0 trust that theyll get anything of value in return.
  11. Keep it up, Matt and Shane. Pretty soon you'll be on real teams.
  12. Forgot about him, he's a winner too. In terms of homegrown guys, Jimenez is terrible, but he is arguably the best since Zumaya. Pretty unreal.
  13. The fact that Farmer, Reininger, Verhagen(up until recently, though knowing this org, he'll probably be back) Etc.. are still a thing after all these years is just further proof they have no clue when it comes to identifying and developing talent. They just recycle the same bums year after year and they wonder why their BP is garbage year after year. Joel Zumaya. 13 years ago. I still cant wrap my head around that.
  14. didnt Avila call Lugo the "gem" of the JD trade? Cant wait until the entire FO, scouting dept and player development team are cleared out.
  15. Im still confused as to why this org has next to 0 presence on the international market. You'd of thought they'd fix that years ago. Guess not... When youve only had a couple marginal(and thats being generous) home grown players over the past decade+, youre obviously doing something wrong. Problem is, most of the guys responsible for this are not only still in the org, they got promoted. Pretty disgusting if you ask me.
