    Cojo gains some love out of the organization!

    • Bryan__fromNZ

      True dat – sucks about his arm strength. It would’ve been good if he could’ve converted to the outfield. Still good trade-value as a 2nd piece.

      A Manny & CoJo trade for Alex Rios would work a treat. Gordon Beckham’s out of it.

      • Richard Leo

        you never which Rios you will get

        • Richard Leo

          you will never know which Rios you will get

          • Ted Nelson

            Probably not worth Banuelos plus CoJo, but it’s an interesting idea.

      • Brian S.

        Oh hell no

      • RetroRob

        …and then there is still the possibility the Yankees don’t sign Cano.

      • Bob Buttons the Cat

        At 15 mil a year we’d be much better off keeping Swish.

    What ever happened to Melvin Croussett?

    • pat

      Ascended to the right ACL of the Father.

    • Robinson Tilapia aka Melky’s Webmaster

      After deciding he was just too good to just play the game, Melvin decided to branch out to a career in investigative sports journalism under the moniker “Big Member.”

        One of your best posts, RT.

    I’m digging Nunez here, I’ve been missing him in the majors. I love me some Chavez and Nix is definitely growing on me, but if he could get his defense slightly less awful, Nunie is a real weapon.

    • AP

      As in defective grenade?

        To the fans on the first base line.

      • Ted Nelson

        As in a middle IF who can hit and run the bases.

      I imagine a weapon like Elmer Fudd’s gun after Bugs plugged it up.

  • Richard Leo

    Peter O’Brien finally heats up

  • Ted Nelson

    Is Austin Aune even not gonna make at least one error in a game? I mean, I know its GCL but still

    Can someone please agree that Slade Heathcott looks like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the actor?

    I personally would take Slade over Mason Williams, because of his first round potential, and while they steal roughly the same amount bases, Slade hits for more power.

    • Richard Leo

      Mason Williams strikes out much less
      i always worry about Heathcott’s K%

      • pat

        He also walks a lot more than Mason though. Usually that means he’s working deep into counts. Mason’s aggression might bite him in the ass when he starts facing better pitching.

        • Richard Leo

          working deep in counts is nice,but i worry that heathcott’s high K% is caused by some contact problems.

    • pat

      First round potential means diddly squat.

    • Voice of Reason

      I think Heathcott looks like a bull terrier
