#1 Cochran Sports Showdown: August, 25, 2019 (Part 3)


BUT I WANT TO BRING OUT VELASQUEZ. SHOULD THEY BE IN A POSITION WHERE THEY SHOULD LOOK BACK AT THIS AND SAY THAT WE SHOULD HAVE TRADED VAZQUEZ AND SHOULD WE HAVE TREATED THEM IN THE CONDITION AND I DON’T KNOW IF THEY WILL BE GOOD ENOUGH. I DON’T LIKE THE IDEA OF LOOKING BACK SAYING THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS OR THAT AND THAT IS WHAT THEY WANTED TO DO TO HOLD OFF ON THE RETURN. AS FOR THE OFF SEASON. AND LISTENING TO WHAT THEY COULD GET ON VAZQUEZ AND IF THEY COULD GET SOMETHING IN RETURN, GREAT. IF THEY EVER NEED A CATCHER OR THE STARTING PITCHER OR IF THEY ARE NOT DEEP ENOUGH TO TURN THEM INTO SOMETHING, THEY’RE FAIRLY WELL INSULATED. I DON’T WANT TO SAY THAT THEY WOULD HAVE A LEVEL CLOSER, NOT AT THAT CLUB AND LET’S BE HONEST AND TO GET SOMEBODY IN THERE THAT IS GOOD ENOUGH AND THEY WON’T GO OUT THERE TO FILL THE HOLES, CORRECT? THEY WON’T DO THAT. BUT WHAT HAVE THEY DONE IN THE PAST TO MAKE THE ACQUISITIONS AS THEY MADE THE OFF-SEASON TRADES AND FLIPPED GERRIT COLE AND THIS IS HOW THEY WILL DO IT AND HE’S THE BEST ASSET. IF THEY ARE SERIOUS ABOUT TRYING NOT TO BE A 70-WIN TEAM NEXT YEAR, THEY NEED TO FIND A WAY TO GET MORE MAJOR LEAGUERS. I AGREE WITH THAT AND WHAT WE CAN’T HAVE HERE IS A CLASSIC CLOSER TRADE WITH THE IDEA OF FLIPPING VAZQUEZ IS TO GET ANOTHER FUTURE CLOSER BACK AND LIKE HE DID WITH HANRAHAN AND YOU’VE GOT TO FIND, YOU’VE GOT TO FIND A CATCHER AND THAT IS WHY ONE OF THE THINGS I’M ROOTING FOR, THE DODGERS BLOWING ANOTHER PLAYOFF SERIES BECAUSE THEY ARE IN THE EIGHTH INNING GUYS, AND THEN THEY WOULD GO INTO THE WINTER, THINKING WE BLEW IT BECAUSE THEY DEPARTMENT MAKE THE VAZQUEZ TRADE IN JULY AND THEN DOES THAT MAKE THEM DESPERATE TO TURN AROUND AND TO DO IT AGAIN? AND PLUS I’LL POINT OUT WHERE HE WILL NEED TO OPT OUT OF THE DEAL WITH THE YANKEES, THE SPECULATION AND THE YANKEES AND NEIL HUNTINGTON WILL HAVE A RELATIONSHIP THAT MADE A LOT OF TRADES AND MAYBE THAT’S THE HOME FOR VAZQUEZ AS WELL. ALL RIGHT, ANOTHER THING WE HEARD TODAY, WAS THAT IT LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE GOING TO PICK UP THE OPTION ON CHRIS ARCHER. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE OUT THERE SAYING WHY DO THAT? AND IT WILL BE $9 MILLION PLUS AND WHATEVER THAT IS AND THEY DON’T HAVE A LOT AS YOU WOULD DESCRIBE AND THAT YOU NEED TO HAVE SOMEBODY IN THERE TO TRY TO MAKE IT RIGHT EVEN THOUGH IT MAY NEVER BE RIGHT BASED ON WHAT THEY MADE THAT TRADE WHEN THEY PULLED IT OFF. DO YOU THINK IT’S THE RIGHT CALL AT THIS POINT OR SAVE THE $9 MILLION AS YOU SAY THEY’RE NOT GOING TO SPEND, I UNDERSTAND THAT, BUT THEY SHOULD BE FORCED TO SPEND MORE AND HOW MUCH ARE THEY SAVING ON ALL THESE CONTRACTS? I THINK IT’S A SMART MOVE AND WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO DO. I DO UNDERSTAND THE SENTIMENT THAT IF THEY DON’T SPEND THAT MONEY ON CHRIS ARCHER AND THEY WON’T GET SPENT ON ANYONE ELSE, I GET IT. BUT YOU KNOW HE WOULD MAKE $8.25. YOU WON’T BE GETTING A WHOLE HECK OF A LOT. EVEN IF CHRIS ARCHER EATS INNINGS. MAYBE MORE OF A FOUR OR FIVE, HE HAS THE POSSIBILITY OF BEING HIGHER THAN THAT BASED ON WHAT HE HAS DONE IN THE SECOND HALF. AND COMPARED TO WHAT THEY MIGHT DO AND WHAT THEY WOULD HAVE, HE WOULD BE THE NUMBER ONE, RIGHT? THAT’S THE FUNNY PART, ALL BASED ON WHAT THE SEASON WILL BE FOR BASICALLY TWO MONTHS OF LAST SEASON, THIS IS THE WAY THAT IT IS. NOW HOW MANY STIMULATIONS DID THAT HAPPEN 8,000 OR 10,000 TIMES? ARCHER WAS BASED ON HIS VOLUME OF WORK TODAY WITH THE ERA AS THE RAY’S STARTING PITCHER, WILL. AND LOOK, I THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD MOVE WHEN THEY DID IT. I THOUGHT GLASNOW AND MEADOWS MIGHT HAVE BEEN EXPENSIVE, BUT GLASNOW WASN’T GOING TO GET IT HERE. I HAD NO PROBLEM BRINGING HIM IN. AND IT IS A TERRIBLE TRADE. AT THE TIME I WAS OKAY WITH IT AND SOMEONE NEEDS TO BE THE NUMBER ONE. TAILLON IS OUT NEXT YEAR. AND KELLER IS GOING TO BE THE FIRST YEAR IN THE BIG LEAGUES, THE FULL SEASON, AND SOMEBODY HAS TO BE THE NUMBER ONE. BOIL MAKE IT SHORT. I DON’T HAVE A LOT OF CONFIDENCE IN ARCHER, BUT I MIGHT IF THEY CHANGED PITCHING COACHES OR VELOCITY. AND THAT MIGHT BE SOMETHING
