Maxed Out

I’ll miss David Robertson and his reliable socks more than I’ll ever miss Max Scherzer and his reliable gopherballs.

Who knows whether Luisangel Acuna actually becomes a star; what we know was that Scherzer wasn’t one anymore. At best, he was a fading one whose 2024 looks pretty risky, so I’m glad he and all that money are gone.

Next up? Probably Tommy Pham and maybe Brooks Raley. Verlander? He might stay. Hopefully the rest of these guys give us a starting pitcher because I’m not looking forward to David Peterson and Tylor Megill.

Up from Syracuse to take Max’s place is Vinny Nottoli. Reed Garrett, No. 75, replaced Robertson.

    You should have waited until after the deadline to post, lol.

    But I’m thrilled that after the cluelessness and dysfunction of the latter Wilpon years, Cohen stepped up, cut his losses, and decisively pivoted to the strategy of, ironically, the strategy of the early Wilpon-Doubleday years.

    Unfortunately, Billy Eppler is no Frank Cashen. But I don’t know if genius deals like Lee Mazzilli for Ron Darling and Walt Terrell followed by Terrell for Howard Johnson is possible today.
