    Didn't he have a damaged UCL last year (or the year prior) as well or am I thinking of someone else? He elected to undergo stem cell treatment rather than Tommy John...

    I disagree. When a talent like this comes around, you pick up first and figure it out later. Unless your dropping a top tier guy to grab him, SP is mostly a crap shoot anyway. You shouldn't assume worst case scenarios. Dropping costs nothing later if he doesn't pan out. But if he does, it could be a game changer. Just my two cents
  7. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    I couldnt help but think of this throughout this thread. Jefferies I think had some makeup issue though, and he was in a large market, in the spotlight. i remember soe reports about guys like Hernandez and Carter hazing him a little as well. I dont know how true that was, but NY gave up on him after just a few seasons. He did have defensive limitations as well, so some of the parallels here are uncanny. Again, not implying Vlad is going to be Jefferies, just thinking out loud. I think i remember him being on the cover of BA several times in that period
  8. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Anyone else see any similarities to Gregg Jefferies here? I was a kid in '86 when, without internet and social media, he was the next great superstar. in 1986 (age 18 season), he hit a combined .353/.401/.549 between 3 levels. New York hype machine was all over this guy. Had 16 HR that year, more walks than K's, 111 total RBI's and over 30 doubles. He won player of the year by BA in 86 and 87. He debuted with the mets in 87, and the rest is history. His contact skills were exceptional. I dont think having a career track like Jefferies would be a very bad thing, his career was cut short, but was a very solid player for about a dozen years, but he fell short of what was expected of him, especially in the power department

  11. Lucas Giolito - SP WAS

    2-0 2.51 ERA 32 IP 22 H 36:14 K:BB not too shabby, walk rate somewhat high, but otherwise dealing
  12. Tyler Glasnow - SP PIT

    big 6'7 195 pound SP, hes going to joing Cole and Taillon aand theyll be known as the "Big 3" next Spring. Overall line, 3-0, 2.31 ERA, 62:23 K:BB ratio in 39 IP. He's only been going about 5 IP per start right now (probably due to pitch efficiency and pitch counts)...only in his 2nd year, but hes breaking out in Low A right now. Last 5 games, including yesterday: 24 IP, 8 hits, 6 ER (2.25 ERA), 46 K, 12 thing is he's doing this all as a 19 year old...get on the glasnow train
