Should be at 38, but Matt Moore hasn't been made official yet.

A young lad we claimed from the Reds.

 

None of this matters though now.   McCoskey says Avila has gutted the team of it's leader and bulldogs by cutting McCann and Wilson.  We're doomed to 119 losses.

After scanning these mugshots, it is very obvious that the future of this team is in the minor leagues.

If you need to know how much of a leader someone is, let him tell you about it. 

Did mcccann hold a press conference to describe how great of a leader he was?

Wilson is an irreplaceable leader, he says himself. At length.

Surprised to see Carpenter, Reininger and Dixon on the 40-man.  I know we don’t anticipate losing any players in the Rule V, so I guess it doesn’t matter at this point.  I’m sure they’ll be vulnerable once we make a signing or two.

Those aren't the weak points on the current 40-man... that would be Jose Fernandez and Dustin Peterson... IMO.

I’d put them on the short list, too, but some sites have put Peterson as a top 15 prospect in our org.  And Fernandez is a hard-throwing LH reliever, coming off a very good minor league season.  Control issues, though.

None of them are currently in danger as we have two open spots and even if we take two Rule 5 guys, it will take getting someone better as a FA or otherwise before the low men on the list start getting knocked off..

Agree,   Matt Moore will take one spot, and I do think they’ll sign another middle infielder, SP and catcher from the bargain bin.

He's the surfer dude from La Jolla, CA.  He and Jacoby are going to show up early to Spring training, but that's just for show.   They will be taking morning trips to the coast to smoke pot and catch a few waves.  Norris offered to bring them there in his van, but Brandon thinks that is lame.  He prefers his vette - a gift from his dad, the Hollywood agent.  They are both Happy McCann is not going to be around to bother them.  35546123001_5788300569001_5788299006001-

Those mugshots and the talent they collectively represent make me think I need to find a better hobby than following this team and identifying my fortunes with its successes and failures.  But I know I’m not going anywhere else. 

I have often thought that if the Tigers became a girls softball team I would still follow them because the club’s pull is too great for me to resist.  And this is still the case with this tepidly inspiring roster. And there’s no way I can really predict “how things will shake out in the end.“  But my guess is we have another pretty high draft pick in store in 2020.  Of course there’s no telling how crappy other teams are too.  So their record may be surprisingly better than my gloom allows just because of that.

Look, they are all pretty like girl softball players too. Why, I ll bet they never ever get upset.

He really does, that mullet doesn't look good anywhere outside of Walmart.
