  1. Brandon Nimmo 2018 Outlook

    The only problem with Nimmo remains playing time when Cespedes returns. Until the Mets are prepared to have Jay Bruce play first base.
  2. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Double A baseball is not improving Vlad's skills at the plate. He is a big fish in a very small pond right now. The Blue Jays should be focused on finding Vlad better competition. At least move him to Triple A so he can destroy different pitchers.
  3. Peter Alonso 1b NYM

    I'm guessing Sandy isn't doing this GM thing much longer and has picked up older guys like Jay Bruce, Todd Frazier, Jason Vargas, Adrian Gonzalez and Jose Bautista. Talk radio has been talking about moving deGrom at some point for some good prospects if they fall out of it. The Mets are already trying Dominic Smith in the OF in a move that would allow Peter Alonso a chance to play 1B. Smith is a good defensive glove at 1B but Alonso probably can't play anywhere else in the bigs but first base. The trade deadline seems like a very real target date for Alonso to get called up with the hopes of getting two months of bombs. Sooner if Adrian Gonzalez gets cut.
  4. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    If they are not winning anything this year, then bring him up mid June and let him play 3B everyday. His defense won't matter for a non-playoff team. Donaldson should no longer be a priority if they are not committed to him long term and he probably gets moved at some point soon if the losing continues. Josh can DH until then and hopefully stay healthy. And how much can Vlad learn from facing major league pitchers this year that will help him next season. Developing Vlad's bat should be a higher priority than his glove.

    I don't think Ozuna is in danger of losing at bats either. I just think he noticed the new kid who is playing CF tonight and has been hitting jacks and then got three hits himself. Maybe a little run is coming.
  6. Tyler O'Neill 2018 Outlook

    I think it got Ozuna's attention, he got three hits tonight.
  7. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    At this point they might as well say he needs work putting pine tar on his bat before he can get moved up. The little things are important to Toronto.
  8. Marcell Ozuna 2018 Outlook

    I can't wait until Ozuna goes on a hot streak................I mean I really can't wait any longer. Let's go Marcell.
  9. Brandon Nimmo 2018 Outlook

    Should be nice to see what Nimmo can do while Cespedes is out. He's had trouble with lefties but his OBP will be nice for a team that needs it.
  10. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Kendrys Morales and his .154 batting average with 3 HR's looks done and should be released. The Jays are hanging around .500 at the moment and Osuna and Stroman won't be helping much. The fans deserve to watch Vlad now, he's earned it. Blue Jays 3B prospect Vladimir Guerrero went 3-for-5 with a homer on Monday for Double-A New Hampshire. This is getting ridiculous. Guerrero's homer was the sixth of the season, and his 20th extra-base hit in 33 games for the Fisher Cats. His average is now up to .405 on the season, and we're talking about 126 at-bats now, the sample size is not small. Guerrero is the best prospects in the minor leagues right now, and it's not even remotely close.
  11. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    The only reason to keep a talent like Vlad down in the minors is for financial reasons only. He is destroying AA pitchers and is ready for the show. So no, I don't believe this GM and front office.
  12. Matt Harvey 2018 Outlook

    You are right about that but there were a few teams sniffing around Harvey before this trade.
  13. Matt Harvey 2018 Outlook

    Mescoraco was just shown in the Mets dugout for tonight’s game.
  14. Matt Harvey 2018 Outlook

    Harvey may be flipped if he can string some good outings together. Cincy has been looking to dump Mesoraco’s salary and think because a few teams were interested in Harvey they can get something at the trade deadline if Harvey shows anything before that time. Let’s see if Matt can motivate himself to get the hell out of GAB.

    I think out of respect. Harvey show'd great potential before he had surgery for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Most pitchers are never the same after TOS and that now includes Matt Harvey. Matt being somewhat immature and stubborn will probably get another chance but it looks like this is the end of his career.
