  1. Been solid so far but still a bit skeptical because he really hasn't played anyone. So far he's played Tampa, Chicago (White Sox), and the Pirates. Baltimore should be a nice test.
  2. Howie Kendrick to the DL. Altherr's time to shine and possibly steal the job away from him.
  3. Like I said in the spring high upside. Grab him while you can. I wish I could.
  4. Anyone have any insight into why David Phelps has been so terrible this year? Last year he was money. I'm about to cut bait for a new shiny toy.
  5. I think his upside is that of close to a DJ Lemahieu as well in a perfect world where everything clicks. This guy can flat out hit and he has some speed. Never has hit many bombs but he has shown increased power in spring compared to his minors numbers and already has one this year in the regular season as well.
  6. I don't understand why people are surprised by the HRs he hit 19 last year and his pace increased in the 2nd half of last season.
  7. What about Blake Parker for LAA? Has been great for K's if he keeps performing I could see him sliding into high leverage situations and being pretty valueable
  8. Keep an eye on Joe Jimenez top closer prospect in baseball got called up today for the Tigers.
  9. No, but you can gladly trade him away or drop him to a owner who will thank you at the end of the season. Patience. Injury may be the problem but he also had a crazy ridiculous spring as well. The law of average had him coming back to earth.
  10. Honestly he was so hot this spring he was due for a slump... he'll turn it around.
  11. If you missed on Greg Bird now is the perfect time to buy.
  12. The Greg Bird thread.
  13. Was a general comment for the entire thread and wasn't directed at you specifically. Look, I'm pretty sure Bird hit at least a few home runs off a fastball faster than 92 this spring training so let's not take small sample size from the past few games and say this guy can't hit. He's going through a cold stretch this is baseball - players get hot and cold. Ride the the rollercoaster and profit.
  14. So much overreaction in this thread from one end of the spectrum to the other. Everything is going to be OK as long as you didn't waste a crazy high pick on him.
  15. Not trying to be a wet blanket here - I love the HRs, but is anyone concerned about the Ks yet? 8 in 15AB and this was also a trend for him in spring training. I was hoping he could hit more in the .275ish range this year.
