How many games do my Metsies loses their closer for?

As a White Sox fan, at first I was thrilled with the haul we got for Eaton. But the more I read, the more I think we got snookered. Should we have insisted on Robles, too? Maybe thrown in Robertson?

There's still upside in those arms, and at worst you've probably got a back-end starter and a closer. But it could go south. Really a question for scouts more than anything.
Peyton from Philly

Trumbo to the Phillies makes a ton of sense. How much does he land guaranteed?
Jeffrey Todd

Don't love the fit, myself. Doesn't seem like a particularly Klentakian guy, either, not that he's put down much of a record yet as GM to base that off of.
But he seems more into grinding out ABs, OBP, etc.

Where do you see Peter Bourjos ending up? MLB? Minors? Japan?
Jeffrey Todd
3:37
I still think he's an appealing 4/5 outfielder in the majors b/c of the D/baserunning.

Okay folks, much as I hate to, going to have to wrap it up shortly. Need to write up some thoughts on Odubel.
Sorry again for the late start.

On paper the Rockies actually look like a good team. If they get a bounce back year from a few guys in the pen and relative health they could be down right scary. Your thoughts?
Jeffrey Todd
3:39
I don't know about "scary." If they have a few breaks they could be a rather good team. Not a ton of upside that I see in the rotation. And typically, for every bounceback you end up with a bit of a slide somewhere else.

Similar to the Adam Eaton extension, no?
Jeffrey Todd

Yeah, closer comp there as to how it ended up.
I mean, I think it's a fantastic deal for the Phillies. Not saying it isn't wise for Odubel also, but that's a really nice price.
Lots of upside, and worst case, you just shrug and move on.

On that note, if you want to read more about the deal, keep an eye on the site ... going to go write up the signing in detail.
Thanks for chatting, as always!
