No surprise.

Nope. Poor guy can't play the field. We have too many 1b/DH already. And the heffalump, Davis.

Added to 40 man to be protected from rule 5, Yusniel Diaz, infielder Rylan Bannon, and pitchers Michael Baumann, Zac Lowther, Isaac Mattson and Alexander Wells.

It seemed obvious yesterday that Núñez won’t be returning. Elias already has been checking the trade market and indicated that the process will continue through the Thanksgiving holiday. Otherwise, Núñez is going to hit the free agent market and likely appeal to a team seeking a power boost.

You don 't know if Mancini w/b back or who he'll do even if he returns.

Davis is dead weight.I can't believe 1 of those bullpen pitchers couldn't be dumped..Nunez could have been traded at least.

This is a stupid move.Just like when they dumped Villar for nothing last year. He didn't do well this year, but he was damn good in 2019 and he could have gotten them something.Don't understand these people when kit comes to trades.

Nunez can still be traded for another turd.

Re: Nunez DFAd - 21/11/2020 16:06

Not if he walks FA.

I mentioned some time ago that my idea was to trade Nunez and Alberto this winter. I think they've caught up w/Hanser, but he still had decent stats.We need help at third base, probably second and-as always-pitching.

He can only sit and await his trade fate.

They won't get much for him.

Re: Nunez DFAd - 21/11/2020 21:56

Nope. Leslie Brea.

Wells would have gotten picked. Glad they made a space for him.

Re: Nunez DFAd - 22/11/2020 16:43

There are a lot of less valuable people they could have hung out there.Name me 1 guy on that team, other than Mountcastle and Mancini if he comes back, capable of driving home 80-90 runs like Nunez did 2 yrs. ago.

Re: Nunez DFAd - 22/11/2020 18:06

Santander. Rutschman. Possibly Diaz. Maybe on a good year, Stewart. To further clarify, we're probably playing for draft position this year. That makes a run producer the enemy. We still have Davis crippling both the lineup and the roster flexibility. He's the perfect fit on an awful team. laugh

Re: Nunez DFAd - 23/11/2020 09:46

Of people now on the team,add Santander. But they could need him. And even if they don't, just dumping him is stupid.Diaz has done nothing of note since he's been in the organization.

Re: Nunez DFAd - 23/11/2020 12:02

Need him for what? A run at third place? I bet a nickel they non-tender Hanser too.

Re: Nunez DFAd - 23/11/2020 13:10

Get something for them at least.. 30 HR and 90 RBI guys aren't that plentiful here.

Re: Nunez DFAd - 23/11/2020 16:09

He's got power, but he's kind of like former oriole Mark Reynolds. Poor defense, low avg., k's a lot, and very streaky. It would not surprise me to see Bannon on third at some point in 2021.

Re: Nunez DFAd - 26/11/2020 12:23

they couldn't swing a trade for him

Roch heard your pleas. " If you’re worried about the loss of power, imagine full seasons from Ryan Mountcastle, Trey Mancini and Anthony Santander and the eventual promotion of Yusniel Diaz."

Re: Nunez DFAd - 05/12/2020 16:11

If Hays stays healthy I think he could hit around 20 hrs.

Re: Nunez DFAd - 05/12/2020 16:18

Good point. He can hit.
Posted By: mikezpen

Re: Nunez DFAd - 05/12/2020 21:50

only sometimes. To me he remains a question mark.If he does hit, I believe he could reach 20. Roch's comment about Diaz makes no sense. The guy's done very little since they got him.

Re: Nunez DFAd - 05/12/2020 22:01

He only sucks on paper.
Posted By: mikezpen

Re: Nunez DFAd - 07/12/2020 15:11

Hope you're right.He does seem to have a lot of talent.Certainly Diaz deserves a long look in ST.

But back to Hays, I'm not yet sold on him.When he uses the whole field, he gets hits.Sometimes he gets pull-happy, though, and he can be pitched to.

Winter meetings start today. Lots of teams looking to dump their turds.
