Will Smith to AAA!!!!
And now Will Smith is heading to OKC. Not saying that anything like this will necessarily come to be... but, this is interesting timing. The OKC Dodgers have 34 games remaining and a chance for a few more if they make the playoffs. Now he won't play in all of the games, but say he plays in 30 and gets 4 AB's a game, he should get 120+ AB's at the AAA level. Basically what would need to happen for him to get the minute chance of a September call is for him to absolutely go off(like .850+ OPS) in that short stint. The chances are very slim, but his attributes are rated very similarly to Barnes with better power and a better arm. If Barnes continues to look so damned awful and Farmer is not someone the club thinks they could rely on, this COULD be a guy the FO gives a shot to to back up Grandal.
Piggy backing off my post now!! Outrageous!!! Good thing Farmer can play other positions. MLB.com farm system ranking came out right now post deadline according to my notification. We dropped from 11 to 7.
I can't seem to find what you are referring to. Having the #7 system would be a hell of a thing with so many graduations already.
What I could see being tricky about having smith on the big league club is that idk if there’s room on the 40 man (unless they’re cutting one of Barnes/Farmer).
There’ll already be some tough 40 man decisions to make with Urias, Ryu, and Santana presumably coming back... the obvious candidates seems to be DFAing Hudson, Locastro, and Segedin for those 3 but it gets tough after that and you also cut into a lot of position player depth by doing so.
Good point, but you're also going to be getting close to the end of the season. So if some other guy gets hurt and doesn't look like he is going to be back, the club could easily 60 day them. I would add Venditte and Liberatore to guys they could easily DFA, so there are certainly options.
True, idk why I didn’t think of Venditte or Liberatore. Never mind, we got plenty of areas to cut haha

Since we still have old posts you could search and find where I keep saying that during our playoff run Will Smith will be on the roster.
Only issue I see is that he does not have time getting familiar with the staff.
Stetson Allie has been promoted to AAA and is making his first appearance. Hit triple digits in his first inning of work. He was bad to start the season with Rancho, but had a solid 11 game stint with Tulsa. Good first inning, but walked a couple in his second before getting pulled. From what I remember, he doesn’t do great after sitting.
So there's Allie and Gonsolin both topping out @ 100
They have to be better than Baez
The problem is that Allie still has no idea where it is going
Worked for Wild Thing
Didn't quite work for this legendary flamethrower.
Played golf many years with one of his former teammates who said no one wan't to get into the cage to his against him. Amazing thing was he was just 5-11, 175.
As does Lorena Bobbit.
Lux homered and added a couple of singles in his debut. Smith went hitless in his.
Of those three you mentioned, even though he chokes with the best of them, it would be difficult to replace Jansen with a guy who ultimately finishes with Jansen's overall numbers...not so easy to find.
Kershaw is a huge conundrum, as his numbers are as opposite ends of the spectrum individually His post numbers may decide, and what he's looking for individually.
Turner, his age and difficulty staying on the field this year, may get him a trade, but that will be an emotional move, to say the least.
Fascinating to think about, and considering the ageists here, trading all of them, or one or two, will most likely be supported. The post, should we get there, might be the all important factor in the end.
On all of them, but least of all, Jansen, imo.
Not I, IMO it will disrupt chemistry if we get rid of all the old guys.
Imagine if we did that in real life?
One of the worst aspects of our culture is the old folks home.
That should be for old folks with no family, no friends, no nothing.
Or for rich assholes who don't want any family, no friends, no nothing, but just want to die miserably in peace.
Yeah...with these three guys mentioned, the emotional blow would be devastating to many, in spite of the tactical advantages that could come from the return of any such moves
But when things like this are on the not so distant horizon perhaps, I can't help thinking that this organization traded away an American iconic piece of the struggles for civil rights, and an individual that made the Dodgers themselves iconic, Jackie Robinson, to the pos Giants.
And it just wakes you up to the icy savagery of what business can bring at times.
Fine, I wont delete all the old posts.
