    Theo is baseball royalty. One of the only executives in any sport who can call their own shot.

    If he can bring a title to the Mets he needs his own wing in the HOF

    I like that, he’s highly regarded around the league.


    Kinda liked him as a player too. Starting to feel old

    Don't remember this dude at all as a player. That of course doesn't matter but nonetheless.

    Did you guys see Theo's quote on the state of the game? For an admitted nerd, very big of him to say what he said. To steal a line from Felger if he was right in front of me I'd kiss him. In fact, they should fire Manfred immediately and offer Theo the job.

    from cbssports.com:

    The Red Sox have signed former Padres outfield prospect Michael Gettys to a minor-league contract, reports WEEI.com's Rob Bradford. Gettys, 25, is a former second-round pick, though strikeouts have held him back at the minor-league level. He authored a .256/.305/.517 batting line with 31 home runs in 128 Triple-A games in 2019 and spent 2020 at San Diego's alternate site. Gettys has huge raw power and Boston will try to help him make more contact so he can tap into that power at the MLB level.

    Good riddance and Van Wagenen should be drawn and quartered for that garbage trade.

    And yes to Epstein.

    I wanted the pitchers but if Fabian is there, hard to pass.

    I’ll take .220 with pop and great defense in CF

    that’s an interesting kid to bring into the fold. He was always pretty age advanced for his level and he was part of the deepest system in the game so he kind of gets lost in the 40 man shuffle. Tons of K’s tho

    Thought this was interesting

    Bodes well for Blaze Jordan, I believe. He got a positive report from instructs

    Matt Hall and Ryan Weber DFA’d. Kyle Hart outrighted. Made room for 7 additions to the 40 man (Wong, Groome, Rosario, Bazardo, Seabold, Potts)


    Reports on Groome at instructs were not positive. Apparently looked out of shape and his fastball + curve had ticked down

    Bazardo on the other hand was sitting 95-96 with an elite curve. He’s a reliever but could end up in the major league bullpen quickly

    Disappointing on Groome. Wasn’t there talk he was “back” as a top prospect? The total opposite on Bazardo. I love hard throwing guys out of the pen. Hope he makes it! Hadn’t heard of him until this thread haha

    yeah there had been some solid reviews of him from Sim City, the negative reports caught me by surprise too

    And yeah they had left Bazardo exposed to the rule 5 last year when he was operating in the low 90s with a good hook, apparently that ticked up to the mid 90s with a great hook. It’s very rare to see somebody not get protected one year then protected the next but it speaks to the leap he took. He wasn’t even at the alternate site

    I saw highlights of Groome in Providence over the summer and he looked pretty good. I wonder what happened between that and fall instructs.

    Yeah, I think the Sox prospects guys had him at 6’6 250+ right now on their most recent podcast. He’s always going to be big but he’s gotta watch his size. Need him working out with Sale again

    they added him to the 40 man so they clearly aren’t incredibly concerned but hopefully he was just taking it easy down at the instructs since he had been at the alternate site
