    That dumb coaching sure let Lance McCullers, Brad Peacock, and Charlie Morton curveball our offense to death.

    I kinda wonder if this trade made Barnes expendable. Verdugo, Barnes, Smith for JT

    Certainly wouldn't never say never but Barnes is our 1st string catcher IMO, who can also play (insert position here).

    It still got us to game 7 and the only reason Darvish pitched instead of Wood (who dominated the Stros) is that he was THE trade deadline acquisition. MGT had their head up their ass and didn't want to admit they made a mistake so they ran Darvish out there hoping he would be different. I guarantee if Wood starts that game we win instead of the Stros.

    We just think it's boring. We can't fully comprehend the FO genius.
    Well, me anyway.
    Good Will Hunting kind of stuff...Manhattan Project levels.

    I'd bet we'd still have lost because the offense didn't put up much of anything and that would not have changed.

    ???? Are we talking about the same series, the one where the Dodgers put up 35 runs and the Stros put up 34???

    I wouldn't mind Pollock but I would only want him in addition to Harper, not instead of. Let Bellinger play 1B and hand 2B to Muncy.

    Of course... Mario Mendoza never had anything close to a .338 OBP

    It’s not an earth shattering move, but Martin is a solid defensive catcher who can take pitches and get a big hit here and there. He didn’t cost much and we can focus on getting the offense elsewhere. Short of getting Realmuto, we weren’t going to get a huge upgrade at catcher.

    Pollock is a pointless addition that cost too much. The ScottKazmir of the OF.

    I'm talking about the Game 7 where we scored all of 1 run. and literally over 1/3rd of those runs were in Game 5

    They gave up after the 2nd inning, that is why they only scored 1 run. If Wood starts that game the mindset is completely different.

    If they gave up when the game was still in reach (and it was), that just makes them losers. They didn't give up.

    Yeah, I said it seemed like an overpay, but now it looks like pretty meh return. I guess Brito dropped in the eyes of a lot of scouting folks this year. The Jays are rebuilding and stopped using him last year to have the kids get PT. So the Dodgers got someone for cheap and someone else to pay a chunk of his contract, not sure where the problem is.

    Exactly and from the Blue Jays perspective they jettisoned a huge contract which is a goal when it comes to older/unproductive players. Did we settle all the players who are ARB eligible?
