re: 4/17 Braves vs D'Backs: Viz out for season - volfan30 on 4/17/19 at 10:06 pm
I think the offense and starters are both good enough to make a WS type run. I don’t know if the rotation is built for a playoff run but 1-5 if Folty comes back strong and Soroka is healthy is very strong. Offense I think is very strong. The fact that they didn’t sign 3-4 bullpen arms this off...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: ATL Thread: 4/16 vs ARZ - volfan30 on 4/16/19 at 10:29 pm
They would be better off piggybacking 5 and 3 every game with Folty/Wilson/Soroka/Wright etc. than throwing Carle, Sobotka, etc. out there. I understand AA was afraid to trade the wrong prospects only having been here a year but there were a lot of serviceable relievers out there on the market to...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Frank Martin to Cincinnati? - volfan30 on 4/11/19 at 4:55 pm
Cronin complained about the support of the administration and the AAC quite a bit over the last few years, even with the arena being redone.

Acuña expected year to year salaries (actual salary) 2019: $565K ($1M) 2020: $665K ($1M) 2021: $10M ($5M) 202...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]t's not like they extend that far beyond the normal window of team control. [/quote] 4 extra years of team control is a lot. He could probably get $65M or so over 4 years if he was a free agent tomorrow....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
