    rainey Good Ebening

    The last positive move made by ownership was the Yu Darvish bid.

    JD runs the team in every aspect. Ray Davis and Bob Simpson are really private guys and bought the team as an investment. They don’t care about baseball

    except they won’t give him the $ to do anything because they’re worried about their returns

    Yeah the prospect pipeline being terrible (allegedly) is not on the owners.

    Plenty of teams don’t spend big and win. Plenty of teams spend big and lose. We just offered Rendon 33 million dollars a year for 6 years. Not really going to put this one on the owners

    “Our entire organization is devoid of talent. We are going to be terrible without rendon. We would have been mediocre with him. Fuck the owners for not letting us become mediocre! Poor JD!”

    I can get behind that, but I have more evidence that JD has fucked us over than I do about the owners...at this point

    Similarly to Weaver, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, tweets that Texas is “not actively engaged” on Donaldson and isn’t inclined to push a potential bid to four years.

    It’s not clear what type of offer the Texas organization is willing to put forth, but Grant writes in a full column that Donaldson already has at least one three-year offer in hand from another club. The Athletic’s Jim Bowden, meanwhile, tweets that “multiple” clubs are willing to push to a fourth year to land Donaldson.

    jd just loves losing

    So what's the next move. Have to add on the position player side, I assume. Arenado makes sense more than Bryant, I'd think, and I wonder if Texas would be interested in Inciarte as a better version of DeShields. Just thinking out loud.
