  1. Very exciting prospect. He and Jimenez and Guerrero are going to take the league by storm in a year or two.
  2. *Hits 465 foot home run*
  3. Arrieta's in his walk year. Never underestimate the influence of a huge payday. I'm a buyer. Avoiding Stanton - fragile Encarnacion - $$$ Mazara -- really-really poor man's Beltran Gurriel -- average Cole -- unpredictability Urias -- inning limit Greinke -- yuck T. Walker -- el floppo That's off the top of my head.
  4. Agree 100% -- he's going to blow his arm out quickly. No one should be throwing that hard unless your name is Aroldis Chapman and you've proven your durability. Fine to have on your minor league roster as a lottery ticket, but I stay away from young "aces" for the most part.
  5. Like I said. Chill. Today's line: 7 IP 4H 1 BB 1 ER 6 Ks 106 pitches (70 strikes)
  6. Today's line: 5 IP 5H 5Ks 2BB 2 ER
  7. I don't understand this negativity. Chill. He's still the best arm in the minors. He'll iron it out.
  8. Surprisingly quiet on the Cespedes front, even after the Heyward signing. Any guesses where he ends up?
  9. I've become conditioned to assume that a kid with this kind of profile is going down hard at some point.
  10. 2 homers, 4 RBIs tonight.
  11. Dude is just toying with them now.
  12. Anyone else see this guy passing for a young Randy Quaid? Nickname, "Cousin Eddie"
  13. Another HR and 2 RBI tonight. Hasn't skipped a beat leaving Lancaster.
  14. I don't see DeLeon coming up this year. He's giving up the long ball at Tulsa -- unexpectedly worse in that regard as opposed to playing at Rancho -- and the walks give me pause. I imagine he's going to make adjustments -- the strikeouts are still there -- but there's no doubt AA hitters are getting some serious contact when they force him to come at them with the fastball. I'm also a little leery about this whole "hide the ball" motion. Is that the real source of his effectiveness? I'm starting to think there's a Mat Latos comp here. Lots of potential, similar repertoires. But not a slam-dunk.
  15. People can talk about Lancaster all they want. It's that K/BB ratio that really stands out. It's called pitch recognition, and that's a gift. You can make up for a longer swing by reacting quicker to the release. We'll get a good idea at Corpus Christi if he's the real deal. There's no one really in his way, unless Singleton finally puts it together. And if that happens, he can DH.
