  1. Amir Garrett 2018 Outlook

    My notes from From Sleeper and Bust Podcast - He hurt his hip last year and wasn't completing pitches. ENO - I talked with him he said his hip was hurt, not doing any stretching, landing on hip hurt everytime he landed. Effected command and velocity. His Changeup and 4 seam have the same movement, not much movement but speed difference of 11 mph just like Tyler Clippards (no movement just speed 12 diff and its been very successful) Romano's is only 8 mph slower. ("11 mph diff makes me stand up and notice") great for GBs, 11% whiffs last year. 4 seam last year was 91mph and it's 94 this spring. Justin - Fantastic 1st 3 starts last season, then mechanics went on downward plane and not same pitcher, went great to blah, Justin- should have figured something was wrong, everything trending in right direction for Amir. Young in development as pitcher b/c part time BB player in college. Paul - thinks he may be 2-3 inning guy out bullpen not sure he has 5 -6 innings in him.
  2. Miles Mikolas 2018 Outlook

    a little off topic but how did Hicks get credited with the win? Mikolas had a 4-2 lead when he left after 4 2/3s innings so Mikolas doesn't get the win. But St Louis never trailed after Mikolas departed. Cecil finished the 5th with a strikeout, then Bowman pitched the 6th and gave up one run but didn't give up the lead (4-3 Cards winning after the 6th), Hicks pitched the 7th, Holland pitched 1/3 of the 8th inning and gave up 2 but not the lead (7-5 Cards winning), and Norris pitched the rest of 8th and 9th innings for the save. I would have thought Cecil would get the win. If it was awarded based on scorekeepers judgment, then is there no way to judge that Mikolas's 4 2/3s innings could be considered to have contributed more to the win then Hicks' one inning?

    Yep, Ozuna was calling for it and Dejong didn't move out the way. Rosario's ball should have been caught.
  4. Matt Carpenter 2018 Outlook

    Just got his 17th hit off Magill on a 1-2 count. Magill must be totally embarrassed to give up a hit to Carpenter LOL.... He slapped at an 89 changeup that was 6 inches off the plate (outside) to left field. Not really a line drive, a little blooper between 3b and LF. Minn had the shift on for Carpenter.
  5. Matt Carpenter 2018 Outlook

    Struck out today on a Lance Lynn weak a** cutter. Didn't know Lynn could throw anything but a fastball. Was also late on a 92 fast ball on outside corner Some glimmer of hope, Carpenter has flied out to left field twice (today and one of his 0-4 at-bats yesterday). Maybe he's going to learn to go opposite field to beat the shift. Or, maybe he should practice bunting down third base line. per the announcer today: 23 walks 16 hits so far on the season. 900th career game.
  6. Luis Castillo 2018 Outlook

    only 2 earned runs. Crappy throw by Peraza let Bellinger get to third, otherwise he would be have stayed at second and never scored. Did I mention Peraza has to be the worst shortstop in MLB?
  7. Luis Castillo 2018 Outlook

    I swear, every time he comes out the game with a runner(s) on the freakin relievers let them score. His strand rate must be god awful...
  8. Luis Castillo 2018 Outlook

    It's been high because the movement on his pitches has been (more) horizontal instead of vertical. With horizontal movement it's easier for the batter to square up and hit the ball on the barrel of the bat. That's why the Reds staff is trying to get him to stay on top of the ball when he throws a pitch in order to simulate his mechanics from last year. I watched the first couple of innings last night and it seemed Castillo was looking to the dugout after every pitch, maybe to get feedback as to where his arm-slot was to make sure his mechanics were correct. So, hopefully it's a mechanical issue that is about to be resolved...

    Milwaukee is hitting him hard tonight (5/2) through 1st 2 innings. Everything has been hit hard though mostly right at someone. He's 96 - 97 and throwing his change up a bit more. His pitches are still moving more horizontal than vertical. \ OMG Peraza just made the crappiest throw for an E6. Damn, Castillo needs all the help he can get from his D. Aguilar is teeing off on his fastball. Twice he's been way out in front of a 96-97 FB. He's not fooled at all by the FB... Ha, K'd Aguilar with a nice changeup.
  10. Dexter Fowler 2017 Outlook

    Fowler is not one and done in SL. Per Cot's baseball contracts: signed by St. Louis as a free agent 12/8/16 to a 5 year contract for $82.5M (2017-21)
  11. Victor Robles 2017 Outlook

    "You see why everybody wanted to trade for him and you see why we didn't give him up and include him in any of those trades," said manager Dusty Baker of Robles, who was among the top 10 prospects in Baseball America's midseason rankings. "He can be an impact player." Hey Dusty, He can't be an impact player if he never leaves the bench.

    Plus a lefty (Schebler) was coming up to bat.

    Not sure why he was charged with that 3rd earned run in the 5th. Puig was stealing 3rd with one out and the catcher badly overthrew third base allowing Puig to score. If the throw had been on target Puig would have been out by 1 or 2 steps. Next batter fly out to RF then ground out to pitcher.
