Reyes has so much talent. Disappointed.

New DeBum gone. Old DeBum hanging on.

Is the shoulder cooked or what? Was wondering if he could have a Pineda style bounce back. Pineda has had UCL surgery too so he's a similar injury comp.

Labrum surgery + age = toast I'm afraid though

His entire game is velocity and that gets affected most. He's definitely a reliever only at this point.

The lesson remains: always trade prospects.

Nobody picking him up/no rumors around any team interested makes me think that's at least how everyone feels. I'd at least bring him to ST if he's not signed by them. See what he's got.

Always trade the bad ones, like Brett Wallace, but never trade the good ones, like Sandy Alcantara. This [expletive] is easy, Mo!

To be fair w/r/t Reyes, some of his injuries were not as predictable. He really was looking promising. I mean UCL, lat strains, and shoulder surgery all within a few years is so unfortunate.

Overhand thrower makes me think he's even more [expletive].

I was joking, since it's an impossible situation. Keep all your prospects and watch as some don't pan out, and people complain that you held on too long. Trade your prospects and some inevitably do pan out, and people complain that you traded a future star away.
