Tatis Jr 14/$340MM.... no way Astros keep Correa?


He's 5 years older though. With the money they have coming off this offseason they'll have every opportunity to keep him IMO.

I tend to agree that he will sign an extension with the Astros.

I had been thinking he would be a prime trade target if he doesn't sign an extension this off season. But now I think his market will be very thin. Every team that can afford him fall into 1 of 2 categories: (1) They have 3B and SS positions locked up with stars, or (2) They are too far away from contending to justify spending the money. I guess San Diego could trade for him and have him play SS and move Tatis, Jr to be Mayor of San Diego or something.

The biggest plus is that he and his wife do seem to sincerely want to stay with Houston. The next biggest may be no state income tax in Texas since they may have the common sense to realize how much money they actually end up with is more important that what the contract says before taxes.

The Athletics have agreed to sign free-agent pitcher Trevor Rosenthal to a one-year deal for $11 million, pending a physical, a source confirmed to The Athletic.

Rosenthal, 30, recorded a 1.90 ERA in 23 appearances for the Royals and Padres last season, recording 11 saves. The right-hander has a 3.36 career ERA in 373 MLB appearances, all in relief.

The A's also reached an agreement with first baseman/DH Mitch Moreland on Thursday, according to multiple reports.

With his injury history, he has no business walking around in ice and snow...

October 2021:

“Correa was bothered all season and missed significant time with a back injury suffered when he fell while walking his dogs during the Texas winter storm in February.”

That’s their big splurge for the year, next closest salary is Andrus & Piscotty at 7 mil or so

ETA: They only have 18 mil committed in 2021

He's improved at everything including snow walking since his balls dropped.

Taking a look at Steve Cishek a little closer and I think he might be a useful piece of our pen. His numbers on the season looked bad but there was a 4 game stretch in August where he got hit hard and gave up half of his earned run total for the year.

4 games 3.1 innings 7 hits 6ER 3BB 3HBP

For the rest of rest of the season other than that stretch he we 18 games 16.2IP 14H 6ER 17K 6BB 3.24 ERA.

It’s a nice pickup on a minor league deal for sure. I’d be surprised if he doesn’t make the ML roster

I’d like one rotation pickup along the same lines. I like our young arms just not sure if they can hold up for a full season

I know a certain Jabroni who would have fit the bill perfectly. Wont surprise me to see him have a comeback year for Tampa.

I think they're is great shape in the pen beyond trusting Pressly to handle closer duties. You're right on the rotation but I suspect they think the following guys will end up starting at least one game this season:

Luis Garcia
Forrest Whitley
Austin Pruitt
Tyler Ivey
Brandon Bielak (I know, I know)
Hector Velázquez (fill-in/long reliever)

A Conversation With Forrest Whitley, Who Feels That Right Now Is the Right Time

Laurila: Was that part of your pitcher plan, or was it more self-driven?

Whitley: “Everything I’ve done since I’ve been with the Astros has been pretty much been self-driven. I haven’t had much outside influence. I’m pretty stubborn. I don’t always like to listen to people.”

Laurila: That can be a positive at times, but it can also get you in trouble…

Whitley: “For sure. I mean, it definitely does get me in trouble a little bit. Like not listening to some usage stuff. But you learn from it, right?

Laurila: Trevor Bauer comes to mind. He got pushback early in his career, and doing things his way on the field has worked out pretty well.

Whitley: “He did a really good job of sticking to his guns, and doing what he knew worked for him. He knows himself. He’s a smart guy, super cerebral. From the small conversations I’ve had with Trevor, I was very impressed with his knowledge and his persistence.”

Laurila: What about your own stubbornness? What needs to be just so?

Whitley: “Right now I’d say it’s staying on top of the soft tissue, diet maintenance, and sleep. I need to have a good area to sleep and get rest, otherwise I’m not going to be worth crap the next day. So I’m just unbelievably stubborn about where I stay — what kind of bed I sleep in, the temperature, the light.


And there's more...

Between the drug suspension, injuries and non-performance I'd say doing it his way is going swimmingly. Keep doing you Lil Tyler.
