    I'd guess a little bit of both. The reality is that if the Mets truly believed in Smith as their future at 1B, he'd be playing over Agone by now.

    He hit 44 Hrs off RHPs last year. I don't think he forgot how to hit them, and will likely break out at some point. I get benching him in daily leagues against a tough RHP, but I wouldn't do it right now. He's batting .310 in may with 5 HRs. I could see a breakout against RHPs coming very soon.

    That was one wicked looking 81MPH slider right down the middle for Acuna. Poor jason vargas. He had no chance.

    Getting 2 or 3 opinions on an elbow is rarely a good sign, but who knows.

    They're only saying this isn't permanent to take pressure off the kid. By saying it's only temporary, the kid saves face if he isn't sent down after a bad performance since that was the "plan" from the start.

    Said someone about Aaron Judge after his 2016 debut batting .179

    Nice to see Acuna put on a show in Cinci while the reds rotate Blandino and Gennett at 2B for the hometown fans. To be fair, I am not sure how the Reds would have their 5 wins without Scooter in the middle of that order....

    It was one of the more spectacular infield singles I ever witnessed.
  9. Nick Senzel- 3B Reds

    I'm not sure I am ready to handle getting Acuna and Senzel called up at around the same time.

    It will be cold and the win is blowing in from left.
  11. Nick Senzel- 3B Reds

    Reds management logic: Call up Senzel? NO! Winning now is not what matters! Fire Price? YES! Winning now is what matter!

    Braves probably thinking that if they keep Acuna in the minors for the rest of his career they'll never be forced to give him a big contract.

    In the Braves defense, when you have a guy like Nick Markakis batting .266 this year and having hit 26 HRs over the last 480 or so games, it's tough ti find room for a kid like Acuna......
  14. Ronald Acuna - OF ATL

    Acuna lead the braves in HRs and batted .432 in spring training. Markakis and Tucker combined for 1 HR in the spring. So the Braves have established a pattern for not caring about production and instead being more focused on other, off the field, aspects. Just sayin...

    These teams are all playing mind-games with these kids. If your organization is generally structured around telling players that if they play well they will earn a promotion and then you don't give them that promotion due to contract issues, then you are really undercutting yourselves. I don't know Acuna, but he seems a little emotional and he could just be pissed off at not getting promoted last year when he deserved and not getting promoted again this year after camp when he deserved it. Now he is likely sulking in the minors which is causing him to get off to a slow start. He is a pro, so he shouldn't let this bother him, but he is still just a 20 year old kid.
