    I think it's the batter's eye.
  2. Giancarlo Stanton 2018 Season Outlook

    Hopefully he gets traded to literally anyone but the Giants.
  3. 2018 First Rounders Discussion

    I would pick Trea Turner ahead of Betts.
  4. 2018 Closers

    I think someone signs Brandon Morrow to close.
  5. AJ Pollock 2017 season outlook

    Pollock has quietly not been that great for 2 years now. The speed is more or less there but I think the quality of contact has been missing for quite a while.
  6. Jacob deGrom 2017 Outlook

    I think R.A. Dickey is more predictable than this guy.
  7. September Closer Thread 2017

    Brebbia in the 7th up 4-0. Looks like its Lyons.
  8. Yandy Diaz 2017 Outlook

    I don't even think he has to join the flyball revolution. I think he literally has the worst launch angle in the entire league so if he just joins regular ground ball hitter territory, he could be really useful.
  9. Luis Castillo 2017 Outlook

    If he throws like 4 or 5 more IP I really, really doubt he'll get hurt. But maybe you can let him work on his sinker/slider at the big league level with no pressure. Because if he refines that slider he's definitely an ace.
  10. Aaron Judge 2017 Outlook

    Court is back in session.
  11. Kyle Gibson 2017 Outlook

    Well the 4SM thing is true. I did watch his last start and there was a lot of hard contact. But swinging strikes are up and I have no one else to turn to so yolo.
  12. September Closer Thread 2017

    Lyons battles back and converts. Putting the first 2 guys on and then storming back for the save probably matters more to Matheny than a clean inning lmao.
  13. Kyle Gibson 2017 Outlook

    Gibson has made a couple adjustments recently. Hiding the slider better apparently because of a suggestion from Buxton. Arm angle and rubber positioning change (I think). Definitely increased high 4SM usage. He's getting +10% Swstr in his last 3 starts.

    23 swinging strikes today. Good lord.
  15. 9/6 - GAME DAY THREAD

    It's not over yet because Price has to get him to 120 pitches for some reason.
  16. Jacob deGrom 2017 Outlook

    I swear to god I almost benched him because of all the LHBs in that s--- lineup. But I couldn't get myself to do it goddammit. Can't wait until the season is over and this dude is out of my life. Every start is a lottery ticket.
  17. Walker Buehler SP-LAD

    A bit of a tangent here but Ricardo Rodriguez RP for Rangers has been up for a month, 7.2 IP and a save and is still not in the system, or am I crazy? ESPN just gave up down the stretch.
  18. September Closer Thread 2017

    Parker blows one. Looks like Scioscia will turn to CJ Wilson next.
  19. September Closer Thread 2017

    Matheny just can't let Lyons close. Just does everyyyyyything possible to avoid that. Oh comes in for Posey and gives it up.
  20. Luis Castillo 2017 Outlook

    Hopefully they at least use him out of the pen in September. Just put him out there for an inning at a time and let him throw 90% sliders so he can improve that pitch. What else do they have to play for? Just shutting the guy down cold with a month to go seems dumb.
  21. August Closer Thread 2017

    Matheny was actually warming Lyons for the 8th when it was a 3 run lead. But Brebbia has come in and is getting touched up.
  22. 8/29 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Curveball @ Arizona.
  23. August Closer Thread 2017

    Familia 1.2 IP no hits, 1BB 3K. Touched 97.
  24. Andrew Heaney 2017 Outlook

    He got 13 whiffs on his fastball last night. What the hell.
  25. August Closer Thread 2017

    Holland still has no slider. Hung a couple in a row but McCann missed both and K'd.
