  1. De’Anthony Melton 2018-2019 Season outlook

    Ulis was a spark plug offensively in the IT mold but was too small to adequately defend any opposing point guards. Melton is known as a pretty good defender and looks to have a growing sense of the PG position and has looked more comfortable each game out. I don’t see the similarities in these two at all.
  2. Aaron Holiday 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    The only thing the kid has working against him is his height. He’s three inches shorter (6’1”) than his brother Jrue, but their games are definitely very similar. I’d love to see him playing next to Oladipo.
  3. Travis Kelce 2018 Outlook

    With the addition of Watkins to this offense does that help or hurt Kelce? ?
  4. Jesse Winker 2018 Outlook

    Thanks for the response. On the surface you make good points, but... I know it’s an age-old question but how else can you improve versus lefties unless you get more opportunities to face them? And don’t we all know at this point what both Duvall and Hamilton bring to the table?

    Another HR tonight...why, again, is he not getting everyday at-bats on this team?!?
  6. Forrest Whitley - RHP HOU

    Morton is a FA after the season, as well.
  7. Shane Bieber 2018 Outlook

    Both Bieber and Plutko pitched tonight. Bieber - 7IP, 4H, 0ER, 1BB, 5K in AAA Plutko - 4.2IP, 8H, 5ER, 3BB, 5K vs CHW
  8. Joe Musgrove 2018 Outlook

    To be clear, the HBP was intentional. It was retaliation from Harrison being hit by a pitch earlier in the game. You’d think Pittsburgh might wait for a reliever to enter before enacting revenge. The wheels came off quickly after Musgrove’s HBP and ultimately cost the Pirates a win. You gotta love the unwritten rules.
  9. Mitch Moreland 2018 Outlook

    Two HR’s in the four game series vs HOU...one each vs Cole and Morton. His K/BB ratio has suffered since he took over regular playing time from Hanley but the average and OPS are still above .300 and 1.000, respectively. There is a lot to like here with Moreland hitting in the middle of that BOS lineup.
  10. Peter Alonso 1b NYM

    Anyone else find it odd that Alonso is only DH eligible on ESPN but plays for an NL team?
  11. Shane Bieber 2018 Outlook

    If he does indeed get sent right back down after Thursday’s game then a player on the 25 man roster would have to be placed on the DL in order for him to be called back up within 10 days. The Kingham/Nova situation in Pittsburgh is a nice example of the above scenario.
  12. Justin Verlander 2018 Outlook

    Gave up 1 ER today in 6.2 innings and his ERA went up from 1.08 to 1.11
  13. 5/25 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Hell, he threw 114 again tonight. ??‍♂️
  14. Joe Musgrove 2018 Outlook

    Musgrove's last two seasons pitching regularly in the minors before being called up by the Astros: 2015 - AA, A+, A - 1.88 ERA, 100.2 IP, 99/8 K/BB ratio, 0.92 WHIP 2016 - AAA, AA - 2.74 ERA, 85.1 IP, 87/10 K/BB ratio, 1.04 WHIP There was not a clear opening for him when he was called up so he was shuttled back and forth between the rotation and the bullpen. The pedigree is there for this kid to be really solid with the type of control he showed in the minors. I just hope the shoulder issues don't reappear.
