Indulge Dr. D and his Mainframe one more Echo Box to catch up against the 50-comment thread.. then spend one post while he mourns the crushing of the Yankees' enemies, watches us driven before them, and hears the lamentations of our women... then I s'pose it'll be back to our actual feebleminded shtick.
13. Daddy-O sez,
Wondering the same thing. It's been another fairly long period. Hope again that he's okay.
Aha! Found the tripwire at which anybody notices my absence. 3 weeks. Good to know. :: sets timer::
14. Moe Dawg quoth,
M's send: some 2019 cash for Myers (?! confused here). Oh, OK, $20M to equalize the entire trade for 2019 which isn't tough because Myers only MAKES $5.5M next season. Gotcha.
OK, M's send: $20M or so in cash, Healy, Segura and Leake, while
Padres send: Hosmer and Renfroe (no Myers or is that a typo?)
Oh, ok. I get it. We kinda pay SD to take Leake, while re-imagining Healy and Segura off of Servais' chapped backside.
Dr. D's reaction to this is that Segura must be a "Manny being Manny" bat who doesn't always completely fulfil his quota of SLG'ing .600. This whole "re-imagination" thing sounds more and more like a way to sell the suits on a one-way tix out of town for Jean-Jean the Hit Machine. He must have messed up and big time, I guess. At this point nothing else is making the Mainframe's fractions cancel.
A fat load of re-imagination taking place to achieve this one addition by subtraction, wouldncha say?
15. SonicBOOM sez:
In the current climate, no way I see them both sticking around in 2019. Diaz is a huge prize for anyone seeking to compete next season.
Calling Diaz a "huge prize" is a little bit like calling Drew Brees an "excellent quarterback." I'm trying to recall what the Yankees gave up for TWO MONTHS of Aroldis Chapman. Trading off Edwin Diaz would represent, um, 15 times that amount of service. So what, pray tell, would be 15 times the prospects?
Most fortunately Dipoto is re-imagining a roster WITH Diaz ("the kind of player we're trying to ACQUIRE) and Dr. D dearly hopes and Alex Colome stays. The last little bit of "wow factor" for 2019 would the Twin Closers, which are a chuckle, chortle and belly laugh every game in which the PROSPECT of their use comes into view.
Well, that and Marc-O, to see whether that changeup falls off in velo any further.
