Bauer continuing to build off last year’s Cy Young campaign with another dominant outing
Happy for him but happier we got Logan Allen and Franmil Reyes for him.

Just for the 2021 season would you rather have Bauer or Logan and Reyes, assuming the salaries were the same?

Kevalier raised this question in another thread, but it's more appropriate here...

Who ends up with a higher WAR at the end of the year, Lindor or the combination of Gimenez/Amed Rosario?

Update: for the first time this year, Andres & Amed took the lead over Francisco in bWAR, 0.3 to 0.2. The horserace is on!
Why are we adding their WARs together? They aren't a platoon, one plays SS and the other stands in CF.

If money and team control aren't issues, I take the reigning Cy Young pitcher without thinking twice.

Money and team control are very real issues though, and I'm happy to have Allen and Reyes.

Lucas Giolito: 7.0 IP, 2 hits, 8 Ks.

I consider him an ex indian bc he was who should have been picked in 2012 at no. 15 instead of Tyler Naquin.

Does this level of hindsight get applied to your own life as well, or just the Indians organization?

From the 2012 Draft thread:

Uh... college baseball switched over to composite bats last year, which produce nowhere near the numbers that the old aluminum bats did. Numbers went down dramatically across college baseball with the new bats. The numbers can't really be compared, especially since you can't hit 400 foot homers off the bat handle anymore.

As for Giolito, yes, he throws hard, but so did Stetson Allie two years ago. Where is he now? In the OF in A ball. The other factor in being a successful pitcher is health. Where is Adam Miller again? He could throw 100mph as a teenager, too. When a kid throws that hard, but then gets hurt that quick, it does say something about their durability. Giolito got silly comparisons to Roy Halladay. That is great, only what makes Roy Halladay what he is is durability. He wasn't shelved as a teenager, in fact, he has been on the DL what, one-two times in his career? I just don't see the wisdom in paying several million dollars to find out if Giolito can keep throwing that hard and stay healthy when he already hurt his elbow at 18. And in a way, it is worse that he didn't pop the ligament- at least he would have gotten his TJ out of the way. Now, if after he signs and pitches, in a year the ligament finally goes, then you have a million dollar bonus baby on the shelf until he is 20 who still hadn't gotten out of A ball. Good luck with that.




Absolute shit draft for Cleveland.
