This post has aged poorly and it's only 7 hours old.

as always, an egg on your face.

nimmo, in a lost season, has a .790 ops vs lagares who's sporting a pathetic .600 ops.

the average ops in 2019 is .760 so nimmo is still an above average player despite missing all year due to an injury.

Yesterday's game was crazy. Chicago lost. We're 3 games out with 10 games left. We face Luis Castillo and the Reds on Friday in Cincy.

Even you weren't thinking 50 HRs. Keep it real.

You know what's wild is that he's chasing Judge's rookie HR record but Judge had a half a season before that "rookie" year where he struck out almost every other AB. Pete started pounding MLB pitching right from the start.

That HR tonight? Wow. He generates so much power from his legs and hips.

Got to tip your cap to the Brewers. They went out and took it without their MVP player.

We blew too many games in the first half and even some in the second. Mickey's horrible even though he's improved a little since last year. Still, too many head scratchers.

What we do with the pitching staff and bullpen will be key. I think we need to keep Diaz and hope we can straighten him out before next season.

Dominic Smith is probably going to get traded and good for him. He needs to go somewhere he can start. He's too good to be a bench piece here.

JD Davis's glove scares me be it in LF or 3B (I expect McNeill to take over 3B full time next season).

What are we doing with Lowrie?

Stroman may have had the flu today. I just got over it. 4 days of no energy and no appetite.

4 man rotation?

You're looking at pretty much the same team in 2020 with small tweaks to the bullpen and rotation.

I don't think they resign Wheeler.

No way we move Diaz unless it's to the minors.

I agree Dominic gets traded although I'm afraid we won't get much for him.

Lowrie becomes super utility man. We won't be able to rely on Cano for a full year so there should be plenty of opportunity.

They roll the dice on an outfield of Nimmo, Conforto, Davis and Cespedes (if he comes back).

Noah def on my trade em list. No way he makes it through another offseason. He isn't a dominant starter and the mets aren't going to give him the contract he is looking for. Deal him for a couple prospects and a couple major league players in the offseason.
BAF Spurs:

C - Nerlens Noel/Ante Zizic/Nene
PF - Michael Porter Jr/Cheick Diallo/Omari Spellman
SF - Mikal Bridges/MKG/Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk
SG - Luke Kennard/Lonnie Walker/Wayne Seldon
PG - Frank Ntilikina/ Markelle Fultz/Tony Carr

No Lugo stays in bullpen.

Wheeler I would offer a QO. If he takes it fine one year deal. If he declines we get a pick.

We know degrom, Stroman, and Matz are locks for rotation.

If they trade Noah it won’t just be for prospects so we can get a middle of the rotation starter back in the deal to fill the void. You can probably get 3-4 good pieces CF, middle rotation starter, back end bullpen help, and a top 100 prospect for Noah. That is what I would be looking for.

I didn't disagree with the main direction of BVW this season. I'm was all for a win now approach. But half the trades/acquisitions he did were bad. That Cano trade man... That package could have easily gotten us better players.


Most important thing this offeason, imo, is bolstering the bullpen.

I still rather keep Thor and Wheeler. I trust them. I think the starting rotation is good.

I'd trade Ramos and find a catcher that is better at framing and defense. That's important for our rotation.

I would drop Diaz to AAA. He should have been dropped this year. He is not the answer.



Next season we should be ok with everyday players if healthy (always a huge if, I know). Alonso, Smith, Rosario, McNeil, Nimmo, Conforto, JD Davis are all guys who can contribute. Then you have Lowrie and Cespedes (remember him?) to return and a good chance they contribute with their bat. And of course, you hope Cano contributes too, which I think he will.

I guess Todd Frazier is gone. I like him, but not worth resigning. I'm sure Lowrie can replace him.

I'd let Lagares walk. He isn't worth 9 million. Maybe Cespedes can replace him, but I doubt he wants to play CF after returning from injury.

So I guess next season would look something like this?

CC: Ramos/Nido
1B: Pete
2B: Cano/Lowrie
SS: Rosario/Guillorme
3B: McNeil/Lowrie
LF: JD/Cespedes
CF: Nimmo/Cespedes
RF: Conforto

I'm ok with that other than Ramos.

You guys sure Smith will get traded? I don't see where he can play other than backup 1B where he won't get enough time. I think he does get traded, but don't see any value coming back.

Sounds like you're trading Noah for a bunch of junk on top of letter Wheeler go.

Nope.

You sniff at a starting CF which this team desperately needs.

A #3 type starting pitching (young and talented)

A 8th inning young back end bullpen guy to team with Lugo/Wilson/diaz

1-2 top prospects to help build the farm

Absolutely a good package for Noah who has been underwhelming and can’t hold runners on which we keep him from elite status because singles/walks turn into doubles and triples
