Team's future potential
« Topic Start: April 05, 2008, 08:53:54 PM »
Check out what our team may look like in 2011 or so---These are just stat predictions sorta general

C-Jesus Flores...15 HR's 70Rbi's .275 AVG
1B-Chris Marrero...34 HR's 110 RBI's .270 AVG
2B-Insert Player (probably draft)
SS-Ian Desmond...12 HR's 60 RBI's .260 AVG
3B-Ryan Zimmerman...35 HR's  120 RBi's .270 AVG
LF-Willy Mo Pena...32 HR's 115 RBI's .268 AVG
CF-Lastings Milledge...20 HR's 65 RBI's .275 AVG
RF-Michael Burgess 25 HR's 80 RBI's .300 AVG

1SP-Ross Detwiler
2SP-Jordan Zimmerman
3SP-Colin Balester
4SP-Josh Smoker
5SP-Insert Player
CL-Adam Carr

That seems to me like a good team if you guys could predict stats for the pitchers I'd appreciate it thanks!!!or add Bullpen or sumtin

If we trade away ALL of our players in Vermont, Hagerstown, Potomac, and Harrisburg, I think we could obtain this roster for 2009!:

SP - Scott Kazmir  30 W, 1.15 ERA
SP - Fausto Carmona  27 W, 1.23 ERA
SP - Joba Chamberlain  25 W, 1.55 ERA
SP - Cole Hamels  20 W, 2.37 ERA
SP - Tim Lincecum 26 W, 1.87 ERA
Closer - Jonathan Papelbon 75 saves, 0.01 ERA

C - Geovany Soto  30 HR  100 RBI  .330
1B - Prince Fielder  80 HR  220 RBI  .385
2B - Dustin Pedroia  15 HR  80 RBI  .431
SS - Hanley Ramirez  35 HR  140 RBI  .417
3B - David Wright  55 HR  189 RBI  .403
LF - Rick Short  172 HR  379 RBI  .521
CF - Josh Hamilton  42 HR  177 RBI  .387
RF - Nick Markakis  34 HR  122 RBI  .397

Thoughts?  Suggestions?

Ian Desmond will NEVER be in the majors. I can almost guarantee that.

Detwiler's probably going to end up being a good #2 or #3, hopefully. Our #1 is going to be a free agent. Maybe even from the upcoming market. That'd be nice.

I wouldn't give up on him just yet. He's still only 22 and he started to hit a little last year in Potomac.  I think he'd be better served moving to 2B. He's got a good arm but his accuracy is poor (ex: Felipe Lopez).

Who from the market?

Man, I watched that guy play so many times and it was like watching a wannabe ballplayer out there. Yeah, his gun is awesome, but he has that mentality of trying to do too much no matter if he's in the field or at the plate. He's one of the more overrated prospects I've seen up close. Hey, I guess anyone can turn it around, though. These are the things I want to be proven wrong on. :D

Esmailyn Gonzalez is the SS we should be hoping for until something better comes our way, IMO.

Here is the list of possible ace pitchers on the market this year

Harden
Lackey
Penny
Sabathia
Sheets

Please break the bank and get sheets even if it means we have to cutting an overpaid starter.

Jon Garland
Rich Harden
John Lackey
Derek Lowe
Brad Penny
Oliver Perez
C.C. Sabathia

Out of the 5 you listed, I'd take any of the other 4 over Sheets. I definitely wouldn't complain if we got Sheets, though.

A.J. Burnett - oft-injured, not worth the price tag   :nono:
Paul Byrd - don't want/need him  :nono:
Jon Garland - stinks, overrated, had one good year  :nono:
Rich Harden - oft-injured, lots of upside  :?
John Lackey - great pitcher, probably can't afford him  :'(
Derek Lowe - consistent, affordable sinkerballer  :thumbs:
Brad Penny - star sinkerballer, possibly affordable  :thumbs:
Oliver Perez - not great, oft-injured, affordable  :?
C.C. Sabathia - great pitcher, definitely can't afford him  :'(
Ben Sheets - always injured, want no part of him  :nono:

haha..smiley freak. :D

I think we can afford any of those guys. I don't see us going after anything but pitching, so one player even making $17 million wouldn't kill us. It'd probably have to be a long-term deal, though.

We can afford Lackey or Sabathia.  The payroll is peanuts now.  If the Lerners can't even pony up for a reliable ace, they might as well sell the team.

Out of that list, we should target in order:  Harden, Lackey, Penny.

But everyone!!! If we get those guys that gives the Columbus rotation no chance at the MLB almost and Bowden has said "Our rotation in Columbus is better than many MLB rotations know."

Not to get picky but isn't "future potential" repetitively redundant?

We've been talking about getting ONE of those guys. Not all of them. The point would be to get someone that could head the rotation.

And I really hope Bowden didn't say that. We don't have the talent in our system yet to make a good rotation. It'll take a while to develop all of those guys and our hope is that 2 or 3 will become successful at the big league level.

The Columbus rotation is a good AAA rotation, though. There's no doubt about that.

He did say that. But does anyone know what has happened to Tyler Clippard? The Yankees gave him up for a guy they sent to Triple-A. Does he have any future on our team?
