real tight he has to run the bases this season
Glass half full: We get to see my baby boy Max pinch run again
oh poor athlete has to do such a drastic physical feat as jog the bases once a week. how will he survive
I am hoping Contreras makes a leap and is our second catcher. I don't think he will be any worse than Flowers. Rotation is indisputably better. There is still time to add some pen and bench pieces.
I don't think things are near as bad as some of you guys do. We are going to be really fucking good again.
A healthy Oz all season would be huge.
Hopefully Ronnie cuts down on Ks. He still has so much room to grow, which is crazy.
yeah I have high hopes for both of those guys to make a leap. Ozzie has potential to be a 10 time all star and Acuna has a couple of MVPs in him.
That mullet is fucking hot
Very annoyed about the lack of a DH this season. Looks like Soroka would probably start on time if not for that.
wow we’ll call anyone an athlete these days huh (hockey joke)
Maybe we can go the softball route and put the last man out as a runner
Need courtesy runners, like in high school
could be a solid bench bat
you’d certainly want him at the dish late in the game instead of Neck’s corpse
Idk I’ve always preferred a professional AB
When he gets rung up on a bad strike 3 we can all yell MAN HE GOT FLEECED and it’ll be hilarious.
bench consists of a lamb and goat ha ha damn that’s wild
Can’t wait for him to come to the plate in a big situation for the first time so we can start the Lamb chop.
He hit RHP really well and sucked vs LHP in 2017. Could maybe be a platoon option for Country
Yeah. This is where we are.
Real teams are signing actual pieces and we're a REIT first so on the scrap heap hoping to find that balance of cheatest payroll possible while being just competitive enough to keep fans coming to the Battery but at the point we'll never win anything
Who is signing real pieces for the bench?
You act like our entire lineup is filled out.
Well it is
3B is dick. We don't have a back up catcher. We don't have a full pen. We're about 40 million below last year's salary.
We're probably on par with last year, maybe worse, and everyone else got better
Maybe we do?
We need another pen arm
I think we need to focus on the BP and bench. I’ll take our lineup against most anybody.
The exact apathy ownershit is striving for. Well beat most anyone, but never really truly be a contender for anything of substance
Agreed. I’m ok with our pen but we need one more arm. The Lamb signing is a step in the right direction. I like Kipnis. If Camaralago could not be an absolute bum that would be great. Is Alex Jackson that much worse than TFlow? Worse yes but I don’t have to see TFlow’s dumbass face and his dumbass glasses.
Lamb and Kipnis both suck
Alex Jackson sucks too. Let Contreras have the job or throw Langeliers into the fire.
There's really no fucking reason AJax should ge starts.
We should trade one of our two catchers, but AA is a fucking coward
Do you really throw someone into the fire as a backup catcher or just waste their time sitting on the bench instead of playing in AAA games?
Lamb was actually good once he joined the A’s in a small sample. He can’t hit lefties but he wasn’t signed to.
Jason Kipnis is a consummate professional.
Just wait a couple weeks until we sign Markakis. He’ll fill out our bench.
Do we have a wasted spot 2x a week or play a prospect that gives our MLB club a better shot?
Like 99% of MLB teams do
Glad we'll have a black hole 35% of the time
You can tell pitchers and catchers reported last week by the temperature of this thread and I fucking love it
Do you not comprehend how many days TDA is gonna require rest?
You want Contreras up so he can start 30-35 games?
When the alternative is Alex Jackson, yes
Agree to disagree.
35 seems low.
I the last two years he's played full seasons he's started 80-90 games. He's 32 now. I'd imagine our back catcher is going to get 50-70 starts
You got me so damn turned on and it ain’t even March yet.
Sure. The back up catcher will have more than 35 starts
