    Austin Riley Apology Thread

    I have to admit that I was one of the biggest advocates to trade Riley this offseason in the JTR talks. Boy am I glad that we did not let him go because this kid is on fire right now....

    18 home runs this month between Gwinnett and Atlanta.

    This is the Austin Riley apology thread, not the AA apology thread. Still haven’t forgiven him for his bullpen blunder this offseason

    Iím not apologizing for wanting to trade Riley for Realmuto. It made sense at the time, possibly still does, and Iím still not sold that heís going to be a great hitter. The power is legit though.

    progress he showed in the minors shows it was a great thing he wasn’t dealt for JTR IMO. in the off-season, without hindsight, it made sense. but now it’s a blessing it didn’t happen.

    Most of the big money bullpen guys except Britton/Otto have been a disaster so im kinda meh on that one. And Riley/AA go hand in hand.

    By all accounts AA did offer Riley for JTR but the Marlins held on for a better deal.

    If the Soroka+Riley offer for JTR last trade deadline is true....wow.

    I have said this over and over. Riley has consistently improved and then excelled at every level. It wasnít some kind of quick explosion, but just so steady. I didnít think he would do this of course, but I was against trading him. He just showed too much promise.

    This is why you see what you have with prospects . No one really saw this happening, and that isnít so uncommon. Many would have thought Fried was a movable piece also.

    JTR is good, but we are getting great production from our catchers. I never wanted JTR for the price. Yelich would have been worth it, if the Marlins would have not ask for Acuna...but they did.

    In the end...AA made the right decision on the Yelich trade and on not giving up too much with JTR. In the end he also got lucky, because Riley plus a top pitcher plus ...now appears to be a overpay.

    WAR:

    JTR 1.8
    Riley .5
    Soroka 1.2

    Clearly we should have traded them.

    What blunder? Spending much money on the bullpen is a fool’s errand.

    I’m less super-sold on Riley than I am undersold on Realmuto being worth it.

    Riley should have gotten 1.0 WAR added today just from singlehandedly getting us back in the game then winning it

    You would need to subtract Flowers and Bmacís 1.3...
