What are they gonna do with all of the starting pitchers?


Do like the Dodgers did and utilize the shite out of the 10 Day DL.

I think we proved this year, you can never have enough starting pitching.

Guys WILL get hurt. Need someone to eat innings while guys are out.

Maybe not that much but they're going to do something. Gotta get a reliable lefty

Davis scares me because of how Maddon used him. Lets of high stress innings on that arm the last 3 years.

Would the Astros wanna pay that much for Wade Davis?




I don't think so. Giles was frustrating as hell in the postseason but I don't think they're just gonna sign a big time closer and move him to the 8th inning because of those appearances. You can always deal for a closer at the deadline

I do think they'll get a good RH reliever but think it would be more like a Brandon Morrow or Addison Reed type

Another position player possibility would be dealing Fiers (and perhaps a prospect) for a good defensive catcher that could spell McCann more. It would give McCann more days off to rest for October and stay healthy and free Gattis up to DH. Whoever the catcher is likely wouldn't be able to hit worth a shite but luckily we have a lineup that can afford that


Get on the phone with the Angels and see what they want for Martin Maldonado.

We need to go get a guy like Tony Watson. Another lefty for the pen

Watson and Morrow or Reed would make me very happy

That’s 9 guys. Musgrove and Martes will probably stay in the bullpen.


McCullars could as well since he manages to toss his arm out every year. It won’t happen but I kinda want it to

I think McGee, Watson, and Duensing are the only three lefty free agents that would be significantly better than just trying to bring back Liriano in that role.

I kinda want to see Moran get a shot at a bench role where he would DH and play some 1B and LF. Almost like another Marwin without the middle infield capability. I liked what I saw and think he made some great adjustments before the injury

I think that Peacock could become our Andrew Miller. A guy that you use at different times in the game in high leverage situations.

We are stuck with Reddick another year right?

A couple bullpen arms and a decent starter would be nice.

Maybe another old bat to put in at DH on occasion

Josh is getting too much hate for getting cold at the wrong time, imo. He had a great year outside of when the lights were the brightest, and even then, he didn't take it out there on defense.

3 more years, and if you think Reddick is bad you definitely didn't watch them until the postseason

You consider someone in the outfield batting .314 with a 4.4 WAR in 2017 as someone we're "stuck with"?

Am I crazy to think that LMJ could become our closer. If Morton continues to be as good, the rotation could be:

Verlander
Keuchel
Morton
Peacock
McHugh

Even pick up someone else to be a 4 or 5 if you don't like this rotation.

I know he wouldn't be a traditional closer, but I kinda think he has the right mentality to be a closer and I think Giles may be done.

Just wondering. May be crazy, but I wanted some of you guys' opinions.

Martes needs to develop another pitch.

ETA: so does Giles for that matter.
