  • So….If Mitch Keller is included in a trade for Quintana, what does Tim do, because Mitch is the cover boy?

    For Tim’s sake, I hope we don’t trade Keller. :)

    • It’s an easy fix. We just change the cover. Right now it’s just an image, and no hard commitments have been made to that.

      The more difficult thing would be the featured article that goes with the cover. I’d just have to write something to replace the Keller article in the book.

      I forget which book, but we changed the cover in the past after an original cover was announced. We did that last year, although the cover I put up originally was only the concept we had at the time.

      For the Pirates sake, I hope they do not include Mitch Keller in that trade.

        Noticed that Peter O’Brien, 26, had been released by the D’backs. 2nd Round pick of the NYY in 2012 and has hit 6 HR’s in 74 AB in MLB. Hit 26 with 107 RBI in 131 games in AAA in 2015, and 24 with 75 RBI in 105 games in AAA in 2016. Started out as a Catcher, and has played 1B and OF. Nice Bat off the bench if we can get him for a minor league contract.

        • John Dreker

          O’Brien played in Reno, where those home run totals don’t mean too much. Not only is their home park great for homers, so are half of the road parks. The thing to look at with him is 23 walks and 147 strikeouts. He got called up to the majors and had three walks and 27 strikeouts in 67 plate appearances. His defense is also poor at every position he plays, and he didn’t catch at all in 2016.
