  1. It's laughable he thinks Moncada and Buxton are comparable in any way too. Two guys who have both struck out more times in one season than Vlad Jr. has in his entire 1200 MILB plate appearances.
  2. What a weird thing to take such a stance on. It's all moot anyway, he's not coming up this year whether it's due to Service Time manipulation (duh) or his defense (not really). But at this point, this troll is just arguing to feel right or something? Nobody in here is looking at these posts and thinking "wow, this troll makes a really compelling argument, he DOES need to work on his defense before the Jays call him up. It has NOTHING to do with the extra year of control they gain by keeping him down until mid-April 2019!" Thread should just be locked until spring training.
  3. "Albert Pujols will never make it as a major leaguer. His defense at 3b is bad." -daynlokki c. 2000
  4. Kap over-managing. His spot in the lineup came up with 1 out and a runner on 1st. Odubel proceeded to hit into a double play.
  5. I'd feel comfortable giving him $25 in an auction and consider that a steal in a dynasty.
  6. Are you taking him over guys like Carson, Penny, Alf?
  7. The system is so flawed. Could they potentially sue for lost wages?
  8. This just looks like he slid head first and is taking off his belt to get the dirt out
  9. Ok, so what does all of that have to do with whether or not Vlad Jr. is called up THIS season? Are the Jays actively factoring Provincial income tax into their decision to keep him down? Is any of this relevant to this thread? ...No...
  10. How is this same old, re-hashed "bUt HiS DeFeNsE" debate still taking place in here? This time seems to be the most asinine...not sure how state income taxes affect whether or not they call up Vlad Jr. this year... Mods will suspend for PM's, but allow this garbage to clutter threads? Shame.
  11. Crazy to me that he was a short little twig in high school, and now I'm reading this comp. Goes to show what enough drive and a solid work ethic can do.
  12. Acuna has exploded since they stuck him at leadoff
  13. Sure. It feels good to have industry peeps sort of backup your beliefs with their own claims. Makes you feel a little less crazy. Now he just has to prove it. Vindicate (v): show or prove to be right, reasonable, or justified. I'd say it's within reason Vlad Jr. could contend for a batting title RIGHT NOW based on empirical evidence and what scouts have said.
  14. I suggested this back in May and was laughed at.
  15. It's neck and neck, with JD a close 3rd. JoRam has the edge right now for me though. CLE is making the playoffs, LAA is not. Their stats are very close in every category.
  16. He said this year, so I'm just going off of whatever rankings lists I could find, most being top 100. Not sure Paddack has ever been ranked inside the top 50 on a prospect list, even before TJS. Luzardo was at least top 75 on most lists going into 2018, Paddack was unranked on all of them. That's what I based my reply on.
  17. I wouldn't call the first DL stint being cautious. In my non-doctor guesstimate, it's probably the same shoulder issue flaring up again, and THIS time they want to be cautious.
  18. Why? It's hyperbole. When you start tracking pregnancies to determine lineup decisions, it's time to re-evaluate the amount of energy you're putting into this hobby.
  19. Paddack. Unranked > now pushing top 50 on fangraphs recent updated list.
  20. Regardless, his defense is not the issue here.
  21. Find a new slant. It's not about his fielding. He's 19...he has his entire career of Winter Leagues, Spring Training, practices, and pre-game BP to work on his fielding. Just because they might hypothetically call him up this year or next to DH doesn't immediately make him a lost cause at a CI spot. SSS, but he's currently holding a .954 Fld%, which would put him at about league average in the MLB for 3B.
  22. It's almost as if each situation is unique to the player, and none of this is very relevant.
