Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Well, if you don't like WAR, The Tigers didn't have a losing season from 1979-1989, and can you really name me one other player during that time that was a star? Jack Morris but if you don't like Ryan then Morris is tough to love. Gibson? Always hurt....anyone else? Someone had to keep all those teams afloat.
I don't see the need to add Duvall, especially at this price. You have Forsythe on your bench and given what he's done the last year + I think you are fine with R. Davis as your only real backup OF
good team. Yes move Pomeranz, you can always pick up good pitching prospects even in a league this size. Someone Like Beede, Guerreri, etc. I would target someone else other than Beltran though. Can you get more of a steady guy like Calhoun for Pomeranz and maybe a prospect like Kohl Stewart?

I would think he has a good case, but if Trammel can't get in, Tim Raines can't get in, Bagwell can't get in, Whitaker can't get in then I doubt Rollins will. HOF voting needs a complete overhaul.

I'd do it. Cody Reed's upside is cole hamels, he'll never be a top pitcher but he may be 40-50 rank SP at some point. Bregman could be huge. It's a risk, but one worth taking IMO

First - maybe, perhaps some younger players like say, Grichuk and a top prospect and another prospect.
SEcond - no seems fair. Bradley in particular has struggled.

I'd try someone else. Reed is struggling a bit in the minors and Odubel has good value. You should be able to get a decent 1b replacement for him later in the season or next year.

Odubel, he plays everyday. Rua is viewed as a platoon bat. Not sure why that is, but like guyer and others he hasn't batted once this year against a RHP.

For now, drop davies. But I'd be concerned about Ross given how much time he's been on the DL. More setbacks and I wouldn't hesitate to drop him. Jon Gray is also tough to trust.

The increase K's are a concern, but other than that not much looks too different. Not a lot has been written about it, but they brought in the CF fence and lowered all fences in the offseason...and overall scoring has dropped roughly 10% in Marlins park. I wonder if the changes did something to the batters eye? other than that, a really bad slump, I'm on the fence.

Biggio is a good comp. Ichiro was a better defender, with more speed but less power by far. It'll be close IMO and I think he gets in but not the first ballot.
