“Different Topics-Different Thoughts”



Random comments on a wide variety of topics.


PADRES…They still have a chance to put together a pretty decent win streak, after going (2-1) in Toronto, they could bash their way to 3-straight wins in Detroit, and then take 3-straight when they come home to face the Pirates.  Of course they could, but they haven’t.  The Tigers are bad, the Pirates are in the early stages of rebuilding.  Oh they could put together a streak to climb back into the wildcard race, but, they are (20-23) against sub 500-teams this year.  You tell me?


PADRES…Lots of things missing on this team.  A power hitting lst baseman for sure.  Unanswered questions behind home plate.  The wear and tear factor in the bullpen.  Here comes the trading deadline, so we will see what troubled GM-AJ Preller does.


LEADERSHIP…Is there a real leader in that clubhouse?  Maybe Joe Musgrove, very strong in terms of opinions.  Not You Darvish, who does not speak the language.  Not Blake Snell, so introspective.  Juan Soto seems so self centered.  Manny Machado has enough to do to live up to his contract.  Maybe down road Fernando Tatis.  Seems like a missing element in the clubhouse.


ANGELS…With all the talk about the possible Ohtani trade, to the Dodgers, Yankees, Seattle, everyone has an opinion as to who to blame if it does not work out in Anaheim.  Maybe placing blame on Ohtani, his CAA agents, owner Arte Moreno, or baseball salaries, maybe instead we just say ‘thank you’ to Ohtani.  He signed an under priced contract to come from Japan.  He has been everything for nearly 6-years for the Halos.  And it is just business.  Though I will say, if he is no longer an Angel come August 1st, if the Halos issue a press release about a trade, then the next press release should be Moreno selling the franchise.


DODGERS..So deep in young talent, you think they are the ones with the real chance of landing Showtime in an Ohtani trade.  But what price do you pay.  They have 5-young stud pitchers led by Bobby Miller.  They have a solid reliever in Brusdar Graterol.  They have young everyday prospects like Mike Busch, Miguel Vargas and James Outman.  Interesting to see what they do heading to deadline day.  Deal now, or just go get him on November 1st when the free agent window opens.
