Put it here as he is no longer w us


We do have the Ex-Indians thread as well...

Well let's see how he does in 23, but we had a reason why we didn't keep him. Not sure exactly what it is though...

I really hope this trade doesn't blow up in our faces... They must really like Carver.

Or they don't really like something about Vargas (aka medicals or personality)

If C-Var stays healthy.. that electric arm plays.. only health will stop him from being a beast in the DBax pen.. like closer level..

He was always one of my faves from the time he was drafted..

I know why Milwaukee did this, but I don't think I would have done this if I was the Angels...

Cleveland by the way... Could have easily outbid the Angels if you use MLB.com prospect rankings since Junk would have been ranked near Nikhazy (#25) in the Cleveland farm. I guess Renfroe never ended up being a target for Cleveland...
What the hell would we do with a guy that hits around 30 HR with an OPS+ of 126? We need more contact oriented guys that don't have that much power. Power is overrated and the teams that win the WS typically don't hit many.

In all seriousness I think OGon profiles much like Renfroe. He just doesn't play defense as good as Hunter.

So he wants to stay with the Tigers and help coach in 24?
I assume he takes a Brian Shaw type role where he hangs out in the clubhouse and dugout in a uniform but just doesn't take the field.

Translation: I have one more year of a monster contract and I'm not surrendering that filthy lucre.
Oh, I love this game too. Mother fucker do I love this game.

Talk about paying for past performance. Detroit paid Miggy $248m 2016-23 and got one MVP type and seven average/below average years out of it. That's a whole lot of Pizza! Pizza!

From MLBTradeRumors. Being a Rays fan seems pretty tough;

With an $11MM salary for next season, Eflin becomes the highest-paid player on the Tampa Bay roster. He’ll lose that title in 2024, when Glasnow’s salary spikes to $25MM, but he’ll count for a significant portion of a Rays payroll that typically ranks among the league’s lowest. The Rays are now up to around $78MM in projected commitments for 2023, not far off their franchise-record $83MM mark from this past season. The overall $40MM guarantee represents the largest free agent investment in Rays history.
