I was hopped on that bandwagon, too. At the time, the signing had good optics. Unfortunately the results just haven't been there so far. The turnaround this year so far is encouraging though!A few more outings like that and I can go back to bragging about how I called the Chatwood signing.
Theo & Ricketts must see that the WS window is at least "open" for this team.It's becoming more and more obvious that the BP in going to make or break this season. Whatever's wrong with Carl Edwards probably isn't going to be fixed at the big club. The BP has been pretty darn good other than him as of late, but Strop really needs to step up into that closers role when he's healthy if this teams going to go far.
I don't see Theo getting Kimbrel, but I think he's pretty much the missing piece on this team, at least someone like him.
I think everyone at this point is just waiting for the draft to pass so there's no comp pick given up for signing Kimbrel. It'll be interesting to see what sort of contract he gets on June 4.Theo & Ricketts must see that the WS window is at least "open" for this team.
Failure to make an effort to get Kimbrel must mean they have some valid trade options in the works. I hate to see them give up much for a rent a player ala Chapman. If you are the owner of the Cubs , Red Sox, Yankees or Dodgers you cant be afraid to spend money when to time is right, or you are in the wrong business . Imagine being 34-13 right now vs 29-18, with a 7 game lead, as not having a legit shut down closer has cost us at least 5 games so far, maybe 6 or 7.
You make a good point with that. My post seemed to be insinuating something with that quote.I wouldn’t read anything into that.
Tennessee does not have “no fault” divorce when there is a property or child custody dispute. You have to cite grounds beyond “we just don’t like each other anymore.” The “inappropriate marital conduct” phrase is purposefully vague legalese used to give grounds for a divorce filing without actually saying something bad about your soon-to-be-ex.
