Overthinking It: Why Every Team Needs Kendrys Morales

19

Ben Lindbergh

Kendrys Morales is so money and you don't even know it.

On Sunday, Scott Boras negged the Blue Jays for not spending enough this offseason, calling the team “a car with a huge engine that is impeded by a big corporate stop sign.” Reeling from the public attack, Alex Anthopoulos choked out a single sentence in response, saying, “Our ownership has been outstanding and given us all the resources we need.” Both sides took Monday to celebrate wounds inflicted or lick wounds received, and it seemed like the war of words was over.

But on Tuesday, the full scope of the super-agent’s plan became clear: Calling the Blue Jays a car was just the opening gambit of a two-part attack. Having softened up Anthopoulos and team president Paul Beeston with the Bad Boras routine, he took pity and proposed a way for Toronto to banish that big corporate stop sign once and for all: Sign Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales. “Those players are available to this franchise,” Boras told Toronto radio host Jeff Blair, explaining the way free agency works as one would to a small child.

Rumor Roundup: Extending Trout

7

Daniel Rathman

The Angels try to keep Trout around, plus updates on Ervin Santana and Kendrys Morales.

Angels, Mike Trout in talks about six-year, $150 million extension
Earlier this winter, there was buzz that the Angels might approach Mike Trout about a long-term contract that would guarantee him more money up front, perhaps in exchange for an extra year or two in a Halos uniform. Now, Yahoo Sports’ Jeff Passan has given us a window into what such a contract might look like.

Which teams' glass slippers best fit the six still-unsigned top-50 free agents?

It was new and exciting in November, mundane in December, and comforting and familiar in January. But by mid-February, speculating about likely landing spots for attractive free agents is as tired as publicly celebrating the Beatles.*

Granted, the alternative would be talking about the sort of stuff that otherwise occupies us early in spring training: what players look like; what players look like from afar; what players might look like from afar, if we could see them; what players look like upside-down; meaningless quotes about team chemistry. There’s only so much we can do to combat the boring until real baseball begins.

Rumor Roundup: Plenty of Arms Available

1

Daniel Rathman

The Orioles keep searching for a starter, A.J. Burnett and Ryan Madson remain available, and the Pirates look for first-base help.

Pirates dissatisfied with current first-base situation
If the season started today, the Pirates would have Gaby Sanchez splitting time with a left-handed first baseman, most likely either Andrew Lambo or Chris McGuiness. According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, in the eyes of general manager Neal Huntington, that won’t do.

Cafardo wrote on Sunday that there is “mutual interest” between the Pirates and Kendrys Morales, who declined a qualifying offer from the Mariners and hasn’t found many (any?) suitors on the open market. Morales’ agent, Scott Boras, isn’t afraid to drag free agents into March—as he showed last offseason with Kyle Lohse—but the pressure could turn up as Opening Day nears, because the first baseman turned down $14.1 million on his agent’s advice.

The tater trots for April 23: the Upton brothers have a night, Chris Heisey keeps sprinting.

I'm really enjoying this new experiment by Major League Baseball to start the season in January and hope that nobody notices. I don't know if the Rockies' employees who have had to shuffle snow off the field twice in the last week are enjoying it as much, but it's still interesting in a performance art kind of way.

The tater trots for August 29: Bryce Harper, Evan Longoria, and Chris Heisey hit two home runs each.

There are five day-baseball games going on this afternoon. That's fantastic. You all have my permission to leave work early and watch them, whether at home, at a bar, or at the stadium itself.

The tater trots for August 23: only eight home runs were hit on Thursday with five of them in one game.

There were eight games played across the league on Thursday. In those eight games, players hit eight home runs. Five of the home runs came in the ugly Angels/Red Sox game at Fenway Park. I can't say for sure, but this may be the fewest home runs I've ever seen on a single day since starting the Tater Trot Tracker.
