Two good years, a great one and three bad ones. Dodgers non-tendered. Plays center. 27 y.o.

This is assuming he doesn't get scooped up w/ big offer and Orioles trade Mullins which I hope they do.May be slipping.Offer Bellinger 10 mill for 1 yr. w/a 15 mill option yr. w/decent buy-out.

They're talking Cowser in center, but he batted only .219 at Norfolk in 27 games, .341 at Bowie.I doubt if he's quite ready for Show. If Bellinger recovers as an Oriole, great.If not, dump him for minimal return.You're out 10 mill. But Cowser mite be ready by then, anyway.

They want a big stick, preferably left-handed.Can you imagine and outfield of a rejuvenated Bellinger, Stowers and Kerstad?

No. We do not need another Chris Davis.

You're risking only 1 year plus a couple of mill buyout.No way a Chris Davis.

Why? Because the outfield isn't that strong hitting-wise. I'm not that enamored with Hays as a hitter, and Mullins had one great year and that could be it.

Hays hit well until he messed up his wrist. Then he disappeared. None of them look like all stars. The next generation won't be blocked if they put up numbers.

I compare him to CD not by a horrible long term contract, but as a slugger who can no longer slug.

His collapse is similar to CD's.

The one thing that might help him out is that he bats left, and the shift is banned.

MASN curious about this, too. If we could get him for this year, Cowser and/or Kerstad mite be ready in 2024-or even later this season.

Sometimes you bring in someone like that for a year to buy time for a prospect.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Decent people cannot fathom the amoral cruelty of the Biden regime.
