I love the guy, but there's already a 3 deep PF rotation without considering Jerekbo. What I would love to do is use him in a sign and trade for someone worthwhile...but I'd want to see him put in a g more »

Even better...have Robin convince his brother to stay there. He eats up their cap room, gets hurt and doesn't play anyway!

Everyone just needs to remember that Max contracts are tiered based on your service time. Per basketball insiders: The maximum salary a team can pay a specific player in free agency is based on thei more »

Is he worth it? Unfortunately your guess is as good as mine. A 22 year old kid like this is pure prospecting, but you have to put in the investment now, or you're never going to get a guy like the one more »

They absolutely do need players, but if you can pull in a top end player who would actually help the squad, why not do it? You need more than one big guy to be a real contender in this league. Just be more »

Also, if I'm remembering correctly, the team doesn't really have any money to go after international free agents for the next couple of years after spending so much on Castillo and Moancada.

I'd be wary on Park. Korea has produced some good pitchers, but pretty much nothing as far as position players go. That's been relatively true of all Asian leagues. We've gotten a few solid Japanese o more »

Forum Post: Monroe wants short term deal
Posted 06/29/2015 11:44:06 EDT
He and Davis could probably play together. Short money is the only way I'm bringing Monroe in...and that's only if there's a big shakeup at the 4 spot. He's not a center.
Posted 06/29/2015 11:18:48 EDT
I like Lopez a lot. He's a bit grittier than his brother, if not quite as talented, and seems to be a fun personality too. He's usually in the news as often when he's injured as he is when he's playin more »

I was surprised the O's gave up on him so quickly. He's been a disapointment everywhere so far, but he's still got potential. I didn't realize how old he was though. I thought he was still a kid, but more »

Davis and Napoli are likely your top 2 FA 1B, so it's either going to be internal or via a trade. As annoying as it is seeing Napoli strike out every other at bat, I'd probably rather him there than D more »

I guess you'd be planning on a lot of Young and some Wallace? I don't hate giving Young a lot of time, but he can't be the only one.

Forum Post: Cost for #9

Dallas' pick is only top 7 protected. I'd guess Boston gets that one next year. Minny is top 12 protected. This one's more likely to fall into the protected range, but I wouldn't be surprised if they more »

I think another direction the Celtics should look is Chicago. They now have a VERY crowded frontcourt. I assume that Gibson would wind up being the one on the outside looking in, but I'd kick the tire more »

It's probably going to depend on who everyone else's reps are. It wouldn't surprise me if it's a pitcher. If he'd been up longer it would be Erod, but he hasn't put in the time yet. If it isn't one of more »

I would sign a true defensive center. Ideally it would be Gasol, but more realistically it would be Lopez. I'm fine with that. That leaves the Cs pretty solid at the 5 with a defensive presence, and a more »
