Don't know if both Marte and cutch thought it was the others' ball, but both are supposed to immediately break for regardless.

No waivers, he's just released, can be picked up for minimum salary. Nice depth for someone, looks like a guy NH would like.

Commented on Pregame: A person of interest faces Bucs on Jul 3 2014, 7:47p
I think you've convinced yourself - wrongly - that the D'Backs would have to be forced to "consider" that deal, which then makes your other conclusions that much, um, wringer :-)

There's number of reasons to not dream on another 6 WAR season, his .376 BABIP chief among them

But you'll also then have to agree with MITT that his current numbers and future projections vs. Mercer......be damned, coz neither support the conclusion, unfortunately.

MITT - Really not quite sure how you interpreted what I've said as this:

And he's already looking to NOT "be good enough" to live up to that contract, pre-opt-out.
Commented on Gregory Polanco, Charlie Morton key 5-1 Pirates win on Jul 3 2014, 5:19p
But we're not looking for people who "don't hurt" right now. We need upgrades, and, IMO, Didi Gregorius ain't one.
Commented on Gregory Polanco, Charlie Morton key 5-1 Pirates win on Jul 3 2014, 5:17p - 1 reply
MITT....it's not absolutely nuts, hyperbolically speaking. You're just holding out Goldy as one example of a guy who can make your jump from 2.5 to 6+ WAR, and just presuming it ain't happening for Polanco
Commented on Gregory Polanco, Charlie Morton key 5-1 Pirates win on Jul 3 2014, 5:10p - 1 reply
Martin would definitely be worth 3/$30 to the Pirates, if not more.
Commented on Contract Extensions on Jul 3 2014, 4:31p
I hate to say it, but I honestly don't see projecting Gregorius to be in any way meaningfully better than Mercer going forward.
Commented on Gregory Polanco, Charlie Morton key 5-1 Pirates win on Jul 3 2014, 3:52p - 1 reply
Well, at this point his ROS projections probably mean more than his season to date, particularly with the recent uptick/positive regression

It's a closely-guarded conspiracy run by NL pitchers to convince MLB to just get it over with and implement the DH in the National League. :-)

Who do you imagine will send 4 Top 100 prospects to the D'Backs for Goldschmidt?
Commented on Gregory Polanco, Charlie Morton key 5-1 Pirates win on Jul 3 2014, 2:54p - 1 reply
But Goldy disproves your premise, right?
Commented on Gregory Polanco, Charlie Morton key 5-1 Pirates win on Jul 3 2014, 2:52p - 1 reply
And this is why the D'Backs neither need to or should trade Goldschmidt, and why no one else will put a package on the table like that
Commented on Gregory Polanco, Charlie Morton key 5-1 Pirates win on Jul 3 2014, 2:28p - 1 reply
I would love to have Goldy, too, but you have to be careful thinking anyone is "pretty much guranteed" while tossing what looks like "pretty much guaranteed" potential like Polanco's
Commented on Gregory Polanco, Charlie Morton key 5-1 Pirates win on Jul 3 2014, 2:14p - 1 reply
Correction: 2015-19 would be Goldy's age 27-31 seasons, not 28-32.

NH did say that Frieri is someone they've "pursued for a couple of years", so it sounds like they may have done some pretty thorough analysis, FWIW.

Trade-pimping, possibly.

Or he could be non-tendered. Same end-point as Grilli, and ROS 2014 Frieri will be slightly cheaper and, hopefully, more-than-slightly better, FWIW.

Exactly - if the policy is you're gonna sit your high-leverage guy the night after using him (when you won't know if you'll really need him tomorrow), then don't waste him in a low-leverage situation today

Agreed - I think the issue was putting the smaller-range Harrison in the biggest part of the OF, and the larger-range Polanco in the smallest
