@Disgruntled Goat What is going on with this BS?  Is someone circulating two pictures?  Who the hell is looking at the same picture and seeing different colors?  That dress is clearly red and mauve.

@PagansOedipalComplex @ngross32 Agreed.  Even if he dominates AA over 130-150 IP, I'd still want him in AAA in 2016.  At least to start the season.

I say we stash Urias for all of 2015 and all of 2016.  Dude has topped out at 87 IP at High-A.  Let's get him over 100 this year at High-A/AA and then keep stretching him out in 2016 in AAA if all goes well.  Calling him up early is just plain stupid.  If he breaks camp with us in 2017, he'll be TWENTY.

Seriously. If Beachy were a legit replacement for Greinke/Ryu and not just depth, he would have signed before ST for more that $2.75M. What a stupid article.

I say we take this opportunity to ditch the whole "closer" label and just use the best reliever for the matchup every time.

So, is Bolsinger converted to the BP or will we just keep his arm fresh in case we need someone to step into the rotation?  Also, what about Bedard?  If he doesn't make the squad out of ST, is he cut?  I thought he'd be AAA-bound.  Do you look at our AAA rotation slotting as our depth chart?

That picture of Yimi Garcia looks nothing like what I remember of him ... then I remembered that I actually wasn't able to watch the damn games last year, which is the only time he pitched in the majors.  Lame.

@- Casey - @ngross32 @PagansOedipalComplex Sure.  I get that.  Not saying I'd make the move, just curious what our plan is if Uribe goes down.  I don't see many options.

@PagansOedipalComplex @- Casey - @ngross32 What's the difference between 26 and 27?  I mean, looks like the plan is to have him come up some time next year.  I get that he needs more seasoning, but we're pretty thin behind a fairly OLD infield.  We've got potentially JT and Barney, then maybe Sweeney that could tackle 2B?  I'm just not even sure who would play 3B if Uribe went down.

What do we do if Seager's killing it, Rollins is killing it and Uribe goes down for an extended period?  Will it be JT or would we bring Seager up to play 3B?

@Dustin Nosler @ngross32 I am slightly confused as to how long Rollins will stick with this club.  If Seager continues to be an unstoppable force and Rollins is mediocre in LA, do we bring Seager up at some point in 2015 to play SS and move Rollins to super-UTIL?  If Seager is the jam and Rollins is providing good value at SS, do we think about Seager at 3B if Uribe regresses?


I liked the flexibility with Seager before, but now management has said: "He's our SS of the future."  Obviously that can change, but it seems like for the time being the plan is to have Seager take over for Rollins when the former looks ready and the latter looks done.  With that said, it's hard to see Rollins lasting longer than one season here, but maybe I'm wrong.

I'm picturing Steve Dilbeck reading this article, having no idea how to respond, and just yelling "NERDS!!!" as he opens up word perfect to draft another analytics-bashing opus.


Chances are Mike Bolsinger won't amount to much, but I like to think that we have some serious thought going into these fringe roster acquisitions and hopefully Zaidi is improving our chances of these lottery ticket-type players.

@ABSmileBunch @Dustin Nosler Let's not forget that we basically slid them $10M, too.  Can't they actually keep our $10M and trade Dan Haren for a fringy prospect?  I still like the deal for us tremendously, but Miami loves cash like strippers love glitter...I have to think that helped.
