    Last year Machado steps on first awkwardly and initial thoughts were that he's done for the season. He goes on to have one of the best of his career. We couldn't be so lucky with Lux, could we? I'm telling you, it's the curse of Roberts. Some cosmic force is telling us, you had opportunities to win multiple championships. You wasted them. You're out of chances. No soup for you.

    Seriously wouldn't mind seeing them taking a pass on this season, trade a couple players to reset the salary threshold, and come back next winter and sign Ohtani and every other big name FA - kind of like the Padres have done. Oh, and get a manager that can win.

    Been a while since I've seen a leg bend like that
    Going to hope he can have a career going forward
    If they get ohtani what are the chances he stays healthy?
    Lot of eggs in one basket

    I agree and for the record, I'd rather they spread the Ohtani money over multiple impact players. But mostly I'd just like to know that they have a plan, and right now I don't see it. Passing on Bogaerts, DeGrom, Verlander, et al and letting Trea go only to STILL be above the threshold (despite being done with the Price contract), which means the penalty rate goes up again this year and will go up incrementally next year, while we watch the competition get stronger, just makes no sense to me. In other words, I just hope that this year isn't wasted and then next winter they decide the penalty rate has gone up too much and it's time to reset.

    And to keep this post on topic, I feel for Lux. Word is that he worked hard in the offseason and with him slated to bat leadoff, this was lining up to be his big breakout year. Now like you said, I hope this doesn't derail his career. In this day of entitled athletes and in-it-for-the-money, he definitely strikes me as one who plays the game for the right reasons.

    The season's already a cluster fuck, and not one pitch thrown yet that means anything.
    Laststatman is telling it right...read the signs and omens Andy, and get rid of that festering albatross around the team's neck.
    If that's not a focused cosmic message, unfortunately the hit taken by the wrong kid, nothing is...
    For crissakes, how many times are we gonna run this groundhog day scenario ?

    I saw his first inning, he looked awesome. Two Ks with good movement. Idk about the reports he's throwing 150 mph or whatever, but great first inning.
    However, that was it for me...evidently he gave up some hard contact after that.

    Welp ... at least the kid gets paid.

    Next up, Freeman will suffer a rectal tear and miss the rest of the decade.

    Bring on the Clown Car.

    Ask the Trail Blazers if Sam Bowie's leg ever REALLY healed.

    That's okay. I'll wait.

    Good thing we got Tony Watson in return...he's been a force in the pen for us just like Josh Fields.
