  1. *Hits 465 foot home run*
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Like I said. Chill. Today's line: 7 IP 4H 1 BB 1 ER 6 Ks 106 pitches (70 strikes)
  5. Today's line: 5 IP 5H 5Ks 2BB 2 ER
  6. I don't understand this negativity. Chill. He's still the best arm in the minors. He'll iron it out.
  7. Surprisingly quiet on the Cespedes front, even after the Heyward signing. Any guesses where he ends up?
  8. Knocked around a little. Welcome to AAA, kid!
  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. Ironically, he wasn't doing badly at all when he hung up the mask. Just a couple passed balls and nabbed several base stealers, and was hitting the tar out of the ball. And then he decided he was no longer a catcher, but really felt like an outfielder. He's the first trans-positional ballplayer. Hopefully he can go into ST with a clean slate and make a case for 2016.
  13. I'm really surprised he wasn't moved at the deadline. Of course, teams generally don't want to deal with minor leaguers who think they can just decide they've retired from playing a position the team was working hard to get him back up to speed. Whether or not he would eventually end up in the outfield anyway, he burned some bridges, I think. I don't know if they question his heart/makeup, but he's going to be in Purgatory for a little while.
  14. Anyone else see this guy passing for a young Randy Quaid? Nickname, "Cousin Eddie"
  15. Another HR and 2 RBI tonight. Hasn't skipped a beat leaving Lancaster.
