@internet baseball fan potato friend @nsxtasy >> There's a decent chance that Urias will never have more trade value than he does right this second.

You could say that about every player in the game.  :P

@internet baseball fan potato friend The best move Friedman has made this winter is not trading Urias.

(Yet.)

In addition to all the roster changes, another thing I'm excited about for 2015 is having an AAA team for which stats will be more reasonable.  You know, because they will be playing at 1200' above sea level instead of 5300'.

@wilhud We still have a six-outfielder problem.  I'm guessing Ethier will be traded.

I like the way the bozo writing on MLBTR didn't bother updating his story, which still says FedEx will "likely share the Padres’ catching duties with Rene Rivera, whose unexpectedly strong season in 2014 gave the Padres a bit of flexibility at catcher."  Oops!  (Rivera will be with Tampa Bay next season, as part of the Wil Myers trade that was semi-officially done yesterday and will be officially announced tomorrow.)

@Dustin Nosler Okay, thanks.  Something to look forward to, regardless.

@Lance Uppercut @BlueMarvin Yes, Julian Leon is the Mexican catcher prospect.  Jose De Leon is also a good prospect; he is a pitcher from Puerto Rico, and was promoted to Great Lakes this year.

@BlueMarvin Funny, I didn't see your comment until after I typed mine.  Great minds thinking alike.

Still wondering what is a realistic ETA...

Speaking of catching depth, I wonder what a realistic ETA is on Julian Leon.  He raked in the Pioneer League this year (OPS .985) and turns 19 next month.  I realize getting from rookie ball to MLB is very speculative, but IF all goes well, maybe 2017?

@Storytime with Villain @Raul Franklin @DodgerBytes I don't mind the Rockies or Padres.  OTOH I have plenty of hate for the Cardinals and Red Sox.  And a bit for the Yankees too.

@DroogyDodger (Blaise)  @nsxtasy I find it fascinating when teams bother trading players that both sides know will never amount to a hill of beans (or a bag of balls).

@PagansOedipalComplex @West Coast Ram A lot of teams believe they are closer to contention than the consensus is.  There are two of them right here in Chicago.

BTW faps for spelling consensus correctly.
