2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Rank these Theo Epstein trade fleecings: 1. Rangers - 2 trades (recevied Hendricks, Villanueva, Edwards, Grimm, Ramirez, and Olt for Dempster and Garza rentals (resulted in 0 WS)). 2. Orioles (received Jake Arrieta, Pedro Strop, and international bonus money for Scott Feldman and Steve Clevenger. 3. A's (received Addison Russell (!), Billy McKinney, and Dan Straily for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel (who promptly returned to Cubs in FA)). Also, are you still a little in shock that Billy Beane traded Addison Russell?
(Mark from Bleacher Nation)
That's a fun question.

The Arrieta trade, the Russell trade, and the Rangers trade. I was not in shock about it (nothing Beane does is on the shock level) but I was very surprised. (Mike Gianella)
2013-07-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)How come Goofy can talk and walk and live on his own but Pluto is someone's pet and can't talk or live on his own? Both are dogs.
(Free Boosie from ATL)
So it looks like the Orioles in the last hour or so, per reports, have indeed traded from their quantity of starting pitching. Reports have them getting Scott Feldman as part of a deal sending Jake Arrietta and Pedro Strop to the Cubs. I think it's somewhat of an upgrade but I still think their lineup offers places for more predictable improvements.

Oh, and Free Boosie indeed. (Zachary Levine)
2013-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any reason to be believe in Scott Feldman's success?
(MickeyRivers from NJ)
No. (Paul Sporer)
2012-12-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)Lindbergh and miller talked about their favorite/least favorites moves on the podcast the other day. Your favorite/least favorite offseason move?
(Roberto from jury duty (fml))
Glad I could make jury duty go by a little faster, Roberto - and I've got my own appearance to look forward to not long from now.

If we count extensions, I wasn't a fan of the Brandon League move for the Dodgers; if we limit this to free-agent signings, relative to some of the deals handed out since, the three-year, $25 million hitch the Royals gave Jeremy Guthrie seems a little out of place. Specifically, I liked the one-year, $6 million deal for Scott Feldman and the two-year, $15.5 million deal for Brandon McCarthy. And from a bullpen standpoint, one year and $4.25 million for Koji Uehara looks good.

To just choose two, I'll take League and Feldman. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Assuming Yu signs in Texas, any idea how the rest of the rotation shakes out? Is Ogando, Harrison, or Lewis the odd man out? Is the odd man out worth targeting as guys like Feliz and Yu may have their innings curtailed a bit?
(jaymoff from Salem, OR)
Not Lewis, unless he gets traded (which doesn't seem very likely). Moving Ogando back to the bullpen is the most logical thing, but word is that they'll approach the situation like they did with Napoli last year. Depth isn't a bad thing, and they'll work it out during Spring Training. At this point, though, either Ogando or Harrison to the bullpen makes the most sense. Rarely will a team make it through the year with the same five starters, so they'll hang onto the depth and plug guys in as need be. So yes, the odd man out is probably worth speculating on unless, say, they move Ogando to the bullpen and tell us that they won't want to move him and back forth and will use him as a starter even if an opening arises (maybe using Scott Feldman as their sixth).

2009-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)With this scenario: Rangers win their final 11 games: Angels go 3-7 (meaning that they go 3-3 in games which they don't have in common) In those final 11 games, Scott Feldman pitches shutouts (or, more likely, typical Scott Feldman 6+ innings, <2 runs) in his 3 remaining starts, winning all 3 of them to get to a record of 20-5. How much Cy Young consideration will he get?
(Ira from North Texas)
More than he will deserve.

Bless you, Ira. Seriously. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)How is Scott Feldman doing it, and can he continue to do so?
(buffum from Austin TX)
I wish he was better about keeping the ball on the ground, given his home park and the lack of punch outs, but there's no reason that he can't continue to be an average starter as long as the ball isn't going yard. He's never displayed a consistent issue with homers (though things got a bit iffy last year so it's possible he keeps it up. (Marc Normandin)
