    My original assessment of him looks good. I'm patting myself on the back and don't care.

    You know what really sucks for JD Davis owners? JD Davis.
  3. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    As someone that frequents PawSox games, I'm hoping they send him to AAA. Preferably by June 19-20.
  4. J.D. Davis 2018 Outlook

    For someone making a comment like your last line I'm surprised you didn't take your own advice. I pulled up JD's at bats yesterday on the MLB At Bat app and your descriptions couldn't be further from the truth. 1st walk you described as "JD Davis first walk was 4 pitches, which according to you, isn't impressive. According to statcast, all four were actually strikes. I wouldn't call that a great eye. " Well, that first at bat actually looks like this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/19IPtk_Qt0VYoCCJTaSPA0Vsz--gvTBF7/view?usp=drivesdk The first pitch caught the top of the of the strike zone, but was called a ball. Obviously, a disciplined hitter is not going to swing at a borderline strike on the first pitch. The next 3 pitches were balls, two of which weren't close. Your description that all 4 were strikes is bogus. The 3rd walk you described as "Third walk was, again, four straight balls. Two of which were clealry strikes." Here is what that AB looked like: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1n0m3orQK3awX3rA0EThjobVl9Cckw7c6/view?usp=drivesdk The 2nd pitch ever so slightly nicked the zone, but as a high pitch, it's not common to get that call. But to say two pitches were clearly strikes? What? Just not true. The third was close but clearly a low ball. JDD should not have swung at any of those pitches and he didn't, he did a great job laying off looking for a pitch he could handle and not swinging at a borderline strike while he's got no strikes in the count. I don't know anything of what was said in the Soto thread, but I don't see anything wrong with what @jahweedum is saying here... but your characterization of Davis' at bats is not accurate... In the grand scheme of things, Davis has raw power and swing and miss in his game. Being selective at the plate and laying off pitches that are balls or not good pitches for him to really handle will only serve to help him. The sample is too small to be meaningful, but is a good start and I don't see how it can be a negative in any way.

    Reminds me of Tony Cingrani... good fastball but nothing else that's effective or willing to throw.
  6. Freddy Peralta 2018 Outlook

    He only threw fastballs though, 86% Off his pitches to be exact... his curve he threw only 11.7% and change up 1.7%... That's not enough. All he did was throw fastballs, not going to fly in the majors.
  7. Paul Goldschmidt 2018 Outlook

    ... but you said Goldy is done. If you really feel that way why are you targeting him in trades?
  8. Paul Goldschmidt 2018 Outlook

    If Goldy is done in your opinion, why would you offer one of the top young arms in baseball for him?
  9. Jose Iglesias 2018 Outlook

    He's always been a high contact hitter and has gone on good runs hitting .400 for a few weeks at a time in the past. Stream him if you like while he's on a good run, but I wouldn't expect for him to be a breakout or someone contributing for you a couple months down the road. Think Omar Vizquel with great but not HOF glove.
  10. Franmil Reyes 2018 Outlook

    I love looking at swinging strikes, however, do you know how swinging strikes in the minors typically translates to the majors? Is it typically stable? I wasn't aware of where minor league swinging strikes is available, although I see it mentioned in articles sometimes.

    I'm hoping this is just Vlad Jr messing with us again.
  12. Robinson Cano 2018 Outlook

    On the bright side it's his throwing hand too, which should be easier to return from since he doesn't need to weather the impact of catching balls on his glove hand for potential reinjury during recovery.
  13. Insulting trade?

    Cole is ranked #3 overall, Machado #5 in my 6x6 roto with OPS, QS. Machado didn't did that well last year even though he's a premier talent. It's a fair offer, I would rather have Machado. But if this other guy called it insulting he's just an idiot that doesn't know what Cole has been doing.
  14. Ozuna/Castillo for Pollock/Mancini? WHIR

    There was whispers of a shoulder issue due to observing his throwing, which is also supposedly hindered. Pure speculation though.
  15. Even trade? WHIR

    I'd stand pat with Rendon and Archer.
