  1. They noted on the broadcast last night that since July of last year (a full year of ABs) he has the highest OPS in MLB.
  2. Didn't he sit against the last lefty they faced?
  3. Curveball looked good to me.
  4. I'm a big McNeil fan and think he'll be much more valuable this time next year. Reminds me of Daniel Murphy.
  5. I understand the hesitancy in overvaluing spring training stats, but McMahon does pass the eye test so far this year. Should be interesting to watch.
  6. Been awhile no doubt. But that is not something owners will point to in May and beyond.
  7. Where you saying this during Spring Training last year?
  8. Colorado has traditionally relied on the 3-run HR. And for good reason. Having said that, if used properly, Hampson could be a huge weapon at the top of the lineup. OBP + Speed + at least average power + defense. Give it time to play out. i will admit that I generally dislike owning young players for Colorado and Tampa.
  9. I'm not a McMahon owner (I own Hampson), but I feel that McMahon will be given the strong side platoon to start. It's up to him to take advantage of it. Hampson has more versatility and better defense, which will likely get him in the lineup more and more throughout the season. I wouldn't overreact to anything for either player. Just stash and let it play out (if you can). FWIW, I think McMahon's situation will be evident quicker than Hampson's.
  10. Saw this in a Denver Post article this morning. not sure if there is anything to take away from it, but it was specifically brought up in the article. Worth noting: Manager Bud Black purposely used McMahon off the bench to see how McMahon would perform in that role.
  11. Absolutely. It looked to me like the hits off him were because the hitter was looking fastball and knew it would be in the zone. That is probably why his changeup is double plus. He catches hitters in that mode and they look silly flailing at it. I also agree that at this point of his development, you want him commanding his fastball in the zone. Once he learns how and when to put it a little farther off the zone, he'll get some chases. Especially if he elevates it. That combined with the changeup is a great starter kit. Elevating the fastball worked very well for Cole once he started doing it. I thought his curveball was a useful pitch also. Definitely has some vertical drop to it. He just needs to command it. It's not the garbage pitch some insinuate it is.
  12. I wanted his at bat against Kimbrel. Brutal. He was swinging at every slider that barely reached home plate. And he wasn't close.
  13. 94 WIP's Eliot Shorr-Parks writes Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is "very unlikely" to play this week.
