re: FSBDL 2018 - Offseason - TTownTiger
Seems like I remember around this time last year is when our league started trading every damn day. I remember coming back from vacation at the end of January and like 20 f'n trades went down in the two weeks I was out. ...

[quote]Jabroni is far more valuable than a salary dump[/quote] I just meant a trade for milb pieces - maybe even a guy or two who has solid MLB projections. I meant "salary dump" as in just getting his numbers off the mlb books this season to either reinvest or bank - whatever, in luhnow I trust....

re: DAT: 2017 World Champions Houston Astros offseason discussion: ASTROS ACQUIRE GERRIT COLE - TTownTiger
Thats whhat I addressed in my first hypothetical post that got this discussion started: [quote]I love LMJ, but if he cant pitch more than 100 IP per season then he needs to be dominating in the back of our pen. But out of pure potential he probably gets penciled in as the #5 over Morton if this h...

Its a fun topic and definitely a great place to be in when we're discussing about how to go in balls deep this season while managing the salaries of this beast of a team in 3-4 years. :lol: I gotta get back to being productive at work. To be continued I am sure :cheers:...

[quote]oing huge all in on FA vets goes against what weve seen this regime do to this point. Core from the farm [/quote] Not in the rotation. Dallas is the only one. Again, I love LMJ but he hasnt proven that he shouldnt be in the bullpen yet. Peacock was great last year but looks to be back in t...

Do you think this is a 10 year window for the Stros? That would be nice. But realistically this is a 3-4 year window unless the Stros want a Yankee/Dodger type payroll after 2020. We can hope they resign all of this current core, but I think we all have to accept that it's highly unlikely. Edit...

[quote]ETA do you want 3/5 of your rotation rookies in 2019 or figure out intermittently over the next two years[/quote] Because the Astros wont be able to sign any other free agent pitchers once Verlander, Dallas, & Cole are off the books and everyone we lose has to be replaced by rookies curren...

Verlander, Dallas, Cole all scheduled to be off the books after 2019 (Dallas after 2018). So we h...

[quote]What if we sign darvish too[/quote] Any of the available SPs really. If Lynn or Cobb sign for, say, $15MM-17MM per year. Would you take one of them plus Cole for a combined $24mm this season? A littler higher in 2019 assuming Cole gets more in arbitration next season. Or if Yu signs f...

[quote]I could maybe see McHugh since he doesn't really have a rotation spot anymore, or Peacock. [/quote] +1. Was just telling the same thing to a coworker who is also an Astros die hard. Specifically McHugh, who hasnt really been linked to the bullpen, but I would think the Pirates value Peac...

re: FSBDL 2018 - Offseason - TTownTiger
Even if last years version of Peacock was no fluke, Cole has thrown 200+ IP in 2 outta 3 years. With LMJ & Morton already in the rotation maybe getting their sub 130 IP as usual, Stros probably really value another innings eater to save the BP arms. :dunno: Edit: and of course depends which vers...

[quote]saw something about peacock going to PIT[/quote] Damn, that couldnt happen two days ago before the trade? He would have been the first one in the Astros rotation once the first injury to SP hits, imo, so I still expected to make quite a few starts this year. But having him in a NL rotation...
