    That's not what he said.

    Talk radio offers almost nothing in that regard
    But then you don't get the local nuance of hearing guys like Frank from Gloucester, Butch from the Cape, etc.

    What was it about Price? Yuck about ERod’s rehab appearance. Wow! Once again way over the top.

    Dick from Dayton tops them all.

    2022 dice rolls: Wacha, Hill, Strahm, Story (JBJ trade)

    In season:

    2021: Schwarber, Iggy, Shaw, Robles, Davis
    2022: McGuire, Pham, Hosmer, EValdez & Abreu and M Ferguson & C Rosier
    Story wasn't a dice roll - a Top 10 Free Agent doesn't really qualify (and of course it has not gone well)

    But 2021 got the names you had - Kike was a signing for the 2021 season so that counts ... it had a chance to work, but he was a utility player. And you left off getting Garrett Whitlock in the Rule V draft - the biggest win of them all.

    It's pretty hard to predict what he'll do at this point...
    I will say Chaim is on the block. Henry has actually been fairly predictable - when fans get mad at him, he will swing the axe. It is almost all straight public pressure. The 3 GMs he let go previously all did exactly what he wanted them to do for the most part.

    Good point, here. I will add that one could view it as a dice roll in that they rolled the dice on spending big on him vs Bogey.
