3 hits against a rookie making his first start who is their #17 prospect, how they keep letting Carpenter leadoff is beyond me
Like the pick, lefthander P definitely a need, injury history is a slight concern, seems to have a fiery attitude as well and 2 plus pitches
I think you can put a fork in this season, literally amazing considering the division isn’t that great but starting pitching is not even close to what you need and the offense is a joke.May 1, 2019 at 9:51 pm in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2019-2020 #89528
Wonder if the nationals would be willing to trade scherzer if they keep sliding out of contention, he also would have 3 years or so left on his contract. Though they may turn it when they get some players backDecember 11, 2018 at 10:03 pm in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2017-2018 #77090
Sounds like dodgers are trying to get rid of some outfielders to get Harper …. Bellinger has been mentioned in trade talks
Buster Olney: The Dodgers have talked to other teams about moving two outfielders among the group of Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig, Joc Pederson and Cody Bellinger. As they look to reshape payroll, they also are prepared to move starting pitchers Rich Hill and Alex Wood.
MO should be arrested for robbery after this trade, you get a dynamic bat that was desperately needed who is also a gold glove defender at first….you give up Weaver who really regressed last year and you have other arms coming up, Kelly is about to be passed up in the organization by Knizer and is blocked by Molina and a prospect who could be good down the line.
Even if you get one year it’s still a great trade b/c Goldschmidt only makes $14 mill, so you should be able to add another bat and a reliever hopefullyJuly 26, 2018 at 8:26 pm in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2017-2018 #62303
Id rather they do nothing than acquire an old player with cole Hamels #’s….he has been awful this yearJuly 26, 2018 at 8:16 pm in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2017-2018 #62299
They need to get a dynamic bat/player/prospect or 2 in the lineup, not sure who that is or if attainable for next year…I caught the middle 2 games in San Francisco recently and this is the worst offense I can remember the Cardinals having since I have been following them.
I think this also taxes the bullpen (especially when MM was the manager) but they also need to stop with these older relievers like Holland and gregerson who have a lot of miles (of course Norris is the counter to that but he was at least cheap).
The bullpen next year will have to be totally blown up with Hicks I assume as the closer, but there is not a lot after that outside of maybe Gant (assuming Norris is not back)
Right now this team is not close to contending for the World Serie
I just don’t see how you can have 3 guys in the starting lineup hitting under 200
