  1. Andres Gimenez - SS NYM

    He has been catching my eye now for a little bit and with Rosario's struggles I think he is worth taking note on as he closes out his season as a 19 year old. Mets (A+) 85 351 6 43 30 28 6.3 % 19.9 % .149 343 .282 .348 .432 Mets (AA) 20 85 0 11 9 5 7.1 % 15.3 % .096 .383 .315 .398 .411 His K rate has decreased and walk rate increased moving up to AA. I am not sure he will ever develop that much power as I think he is listed at 160 somewhere. However, with his strong eye at the plate, ability to hit for a high average and speed on the base paths it is beginning to look like he will at least challenge Rosario at some point. I would like to say the 2019 season, but I feel he would really have to light it up next year in order for that to happen. Here is what Chad Kreuter (Andres' High A Manager at Port St. Lucie ) had to say about him: "If he was on any other lineup, with a Jeff McNeil or a Peter Alonso, he'd be getting a ton of fastballs and he might be hitting .330, but because he's here he gets changeups, sliders, curveballs. Those are all the first pitches he sees every at-bat, which is great for his development, but it's also hindered his ability to hit for a higher average right now." Baseball America Fangraphs had him at 103 for midseason rankings. Sickels at 48. MLB Pipeline at 59. What are you guys thinking here? Late 2019? Early 2020?
  2. Garrett Hampson 2018 Outlook

    He has logged 8 games at CF in the minors so far. Might as well open that up to opportunity as well.
  3. Chris Paddack - SP SD

    His ld gb fb percentages in the short sample from aa. 11.6% 51.2% 37.2%
  4. Chris Paddack - SP SD

    One of his more human starts tonight, 6IP 2ha 1bb 2er 4k's. Only took him 75 pitches (52 for strikes) to get there though.
  5. Brendan Rodgers - SS COL

    I think he sticks at ss. I don't believe the Rockies would pass up having Garret Hampson wreak havoc on the bases at the top of the order. He would take over for Story.
  6. Keibert Ruiz- C Dodgers

    I just feel like if they are going to rank Mejia well within the top 50 on most sites going into 2017 than Keibert deserves the same going into 2018. He will get it, eventually. Don't mind me, I'm just nervous I won't get to see him in the futures game in DC.
  7. Keibert Ruiz- C Dodgers

    Smith (21) looks pretty good, but it looks like Keibert (19) will be that much better. Switch hitter and a high contact rate? Low k%? Great remarks in regards to his defense? All checks marked off, though his arm strength seems to be in the area need most improvement. Comparing him to Mejia in High-A: Mejia .333/.380/.488 BB% 7.1 K% 13.0 in 184 PA Ruiz .315/.344/.497 BB% 4.4 K% 14.4 in 160 PA Ruiz was a year younger at high-a than Mejia was so I don't get why he hasn't gotten similar love that Mejia has. As stated above, the smart writers have him ranked just outside the top 50. I don't see why he wouldn't have a chance to compete for a spot in the latter half of 2019 if he continues the way he has thus far.
  8. Bilal Powell 2017 Outlook

    This may be more of a bench question, but who are we starting him over in this favorable matchup? I am putting him in the lineup over Lamar Miller.
  9. Heliot Ramos OF SF

    Currently batting .348/.404/.645 with 10SB after 151PA. Also has a k% of 31.8, but as a 17 year old in rookie league I am intrigued to say the least. Almost half (23) of his 47 hits have been of the extra base variety. Anyone else got any input on this kid?

    Kicking it old school tonight. The last minute of this song gets me every time. Shame he died when he was just beginning to blow up.

    Don't get out to as many shows as I used to, but he is definitely on the list.
