  1. this guy might have been reading my mind... i see no reason they bring him up this year when they can wait until super 2 next year. a sept cup of coffee gets him some experience and then see how he handles AAA next season. obviously anything can happen and maybe he suddenly starts mashing in the minors this year, but unless he really really pushes the envelope, i don't see a call up coming.
  2. this is a great tout.. i added him to my watchlist last season and totally forgot about him this year! love this kid and completely agree with BA that he'll have a better career than most expect.
  3. So yeah, I think we can all agree that his value is league dependent and in each league he'll have a different ranking. He's a unique player in a unique situation.. I'd much rather we focus more on his his pitching/performance and less on his specific league value. We'll never come to a universal agreement on his value, that will be up to each individual manager to decide.
  4. i'm very interested in avila.. i had him a few years back when he had a monster season and it appears he's trending toward another one. question, though, what does his playing time look like and is james mccann a significantly better game caller? will avila sit regularly due to defensive liabilities is my general concern/comment/question..
  5. Like the names.. do u think honey or faria will get the call before de Leon? I've been pretty comfortable thinking jdl is their 1st call-up.
  6. So Milwaukee smashes LHP, and while Miller Park isn't quite as bad as chase or Coors, it's not exactly friendly for pitchers.. Ray seems like an easy sit this week, right?
  7. You are correct, and in the article he states he never planned to use anything different than his original unusual delivery. This was a practice only delivery/drill.
  8. Based on their own interpretation of the rules, MLB gave Capps’ motion its blessing, so long as he didn’t jump *up*. It was emphasized that Capps would have to drag his back foot. So it remains. From the various indications, baseball’s stance hasn’t changed, and it’s still okay with Carter Capps, circa 2015. Direct quote from the article.. not sure how else to interpret that no change has happened and Capps is still legal. Do you somehow read that to say he's changing anything?

  10. No.
  11. surely one game won't determine whether he deserves to be with the major league team or not. i mean, i guess he could have a horrible golden sombrero game with 3 errors in the field or something, but even still...it's one bad game. not saying you're wrong, just that i hope major league teams have more to go off of than one arbitrary game.

  13. Jose De Leon or Luke Weaver?
  14. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/padres/sd-sp-padres-trevor-cahill-dl-shoulder-20170517-story.html i won't paste the article, but a lot of direct quotes from cahill himself regarding the injury.. doesn't really tell us much, but it's good to hear directly from the player in [what feels like] honest, plain language.
  15. i have no idea what this means. only a dozen or so guys were identified as solid, and being the worst of 12 closer isn't a bad thing. considering the fate of the ones who weren't identified as solid, it seems like a positive observation. sabermetrics are typically underlying/advanced stats that attempt to identify the true talent of a player and give some indication as to what expect in the future or what caused something to happen in the past. i never claimed maurer was better than player X, only that brandon maurer has specifically not been garbage and the underlying stats support this statement.
