re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

If I was a HoF voter, I'd hold a conference and get a consensus vote for the next year ahead of time. We're forcing these 15 through to the HoF, and that'll open it up more for future years.

Or maybe it'll just make HoF voters congress, "Yeah, we can get you the votes for Raines, but you guys have to vote for Morris", I'm loving this idea already!

I'd disagree with you. Prospects are overrated by many (including even myself at times). While Profar/Olt are highly regarded (ik they aren't pitching prospects but I'm assuming are among Rangers top 2-4 prspects). If you have the chance to get a potential MVP guy for some prospects, you make the deal. That's what kinda brought the Tigers back to relevance. Sure, they had that stud prospect that panned out (VERLANDER) but Cabrera was traded for 6 prospects, including 2 top 10 guys that never lived up to potential (although Maybin's an alright player now). Scherzer and Jackson? Trades, although Jackson didn't have MLB experience at the time. Fister? Prospects. Sanchez? Top pitching prospect and a solid hitting prospect. Unless you have a Bryce Harper (which I think you'd agree Texas doesn't have) why wouldn't you trade for JUp? He's young, and while he's had some hot and cold years, we've seen him hit like an MVP candidate at his best and without Hamilton that could be a nice big bat in the lineup. I'd personally make the deal even if it meant Profar and Olt, since more often than not prospects don't pan out or are heavily overrated.

tl;dr Trade for a potential MVP candidate if a top prospect is all it takes. I'll take the young proven guy over the younger unproven guy every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Is Upton an MVP at this point? He's had a few MEH seasons, looks like he could have weight issues too.

You did see how I'd trade for Stanton with just about anything right? So we actually agree, but disagree on what Upton is worth.

Profar is a SHORTSTOP, and possibly a great one. Those are rare. So yeah you have to get something more proven than Justin Upton.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Stanton will have to move to the American League eventually altogether. No way with his sheer size that he'll be able to continue playing the OF on an everyday basis. As for Upton, I don't think he's a stud. A package around Olt should be obvious, but I'd hang onto Profar.

Add Adam Jones to this list. Too bad Stanton said no. Needs some Trout and Harper too.

Have any of you seen this GIF before?




Can't make out who the pitcher is but I'm assuming it's Dickey.
