    I don't think anyone expected him to have the worst control of all time tbf. It was a sexy post-Coors pick that a lot of folks fell for.

    I won't identify said poster for subtweet purposes

    Gleyber ranked #20 in Kiley's trade value series. Not bad for a guy with a 15 HR, Jed Lowrie ceiling.

    You almost included Myers as a "two-way" guy, so...

    I think Cleveland soured on Mejia's defense and are lower on him than the industry is
  6. Kawhi Leonard Traded to Toronto for DeMar DeRozan

    SA can really use a guy like Poetl. Isn't he a good interior defender with good basketball IQ in both ends? Does he have a chance to develop a shot?

    Good...Toronto deserves to lose a free agent.
  8. The Milwaukee Brewers Thread - Woof woof woof woof

    @titans0021 I also have a very low opinion of 99% of pitching prospects. There's a solid chance that Machado would provide more value to the Brewers than Burnes ever will. The Cubs pretty much knew Chapman was signing with the Yanks even though they're a big market team and they gave up Gleyber+. On top of that, you guys are built to win right now. Y'all were expected to be a playoff team after signing Cain and trading for Yelich so I think it's a good idea to capitalize sooner than later. You don't get to trade for Machado-caliber dudes very often. This is all moot because I would easily take the Dodgers package over Burnes+.

    And as I said earlier if you want to play the "17 year olds are just babies who can't control what they say online" game, remember that there isn't a single openly gay player in the majors and I'm not sure if there ever was. It seems like the Josh Haders of the league maintain these childish thought-processes well into adulthood.

    If you are 18 years old and saying the N-word and "I hate gay people" on the internet, you are an idiot and deserve to be pilloried. It's bad enough for these things to be "on your mind" but you should have the maturity to keep these things to yourself at that age.

    I think my issue is more with the tweets themselves rather than the idiocy of not deleting the tweets. A guy my age shouldn't be saying things like this when he's 17. Those beliefs should be extinguished by the time you enter HS at the latest. We are old enough by then that we can control our impulse to publicly espouse bigotry. I'm even giving him leeway because even just 10 years ago the average person wasn't as sensitive to homophobia. I hope 13 year olds aren't as ******* stupid with homosexuality as they were when I was 13.

    It's okay to give up top prospects for rentals, it worked out for the Cubs. It's even more ok to give up non-elite pitching prospects, but that's probably why the Orioles preferred the Dodgers offer to a theoretical offer built around Burnes.

    But we're not two weeks into the future so we should be talking about it.
  14. MLB GDT IT’S HEREEEEE

    But he did provide an excuse for what he said. I'm glad you agree with me that 17 year olds aren't babies and should take heat for tweeting homophobic swears and the n-word (in ANY context).

    Just a reminder that there are zero openly gay players in the game right now. Keep that in mind if there's any outrage from players or coaches over the homophobic tweets.
