    I'm not as against the Canadian themed stuff as most on this board but even I can admit that it is hilariously ham-fisted at times. I mean, it's just a giant red maple leaf on a hat. If you changed...

    Tulo plays SS and is still passable there so he's in a very different scenario than Bautista. Orioles would give him a payday.

    Is this another dome stadium? No one's going to sit in a dome no matter where it is when the alternative is sunshine.

    I am just not comfortable at all trading prospects for SPs or giving out big contracts in FA to SPs. Just acquire as much position player talent as possible and piece together the rotation with five...

    This board is usually level-headed but it just goes off the deep end to discount anything good that AA did. And I don't really know why. It's not like he was unlikable or arrogant.

    Maybe it's...

    Giants are trying to blow their brains out to acquire a CF. Wonder how badly they'd overpay for Pillar considering he is a "grinder" and plays the "right way".

    Ya but there is no way to add payroll in a way that is optimal. The #1 avenue to add payroll is FA which is always a losing proposition. And the problem is compounded because we were not a desirable...

    Like I said, I prefer Shatkins. There is no debate that their style of team building is optimal. I just dislike the notion that AA was a bad GM. There was a season, under his tenure, that we could...

    So he re-signed good, 30 year old players to huge surplus value contracts. There was no acquisition cost of said players. They got old and declined. He did not re-sign them. Conclusion is that he is...

    So you are saying he should have traded Bautista and Encarnacion in their prime. I don't know what else he could have done with them. Maybe made them younger somehow? They were old but produced...

    Yes Alvarez, Nicolino, Marisnick, Mathis, Hechavarria and Desclafani provided this much value. I completely agree. Donaldson was a decent move but these guys were the big loss.

    How can you say AA left behind an old, shitty core. And then say re-signing Bautista was understandable when Bautista was the only one of EE, Donaldson, Martin who is actually shit?

    Attributing the past couple years to AA when he is not even here to make moves is just a piss poor take. In his last year here...

    I agree. His signings of Bautista, Joe Smith, Pearce and Morales did nothing for our rebuild. I can't believe AA gave Morales that contract for -0.6 WAR.

    He just didn't want to waste the Bautista/Encarnacion window. We had probably the best team when the Royals won the WS. As a fan, it's good enough for me to have at least the 2nd best team in a...
