  1. 8/16 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Dumb play by Diaz. Runner at 3rd with 2 out and you try to steal second and don’t slide and get called out. If he slid he was easily safe.
  2. August Closer Thread 2018

    According to the broadcast he has the second longest streak going for not blowing a save next to Diaz. Something like 19 and Diaz at 28. He looked good tonight. Didn’t looked phased by the HR.
  3. Danny Jansen 2018 Outlook

    It was also on a delayed steal that didn't work. It was a perfect throw though. He only threw out 23% in the minors which is below average...according to the broadcast last night. He is definitely more known for his offense.

    Yes Gibby said yesterday that Jansen is here to play, he will catch Burocki tonight.. Hopefully they platoon Martin / Morales at DH. Gurriel can also play outfield.
  5. 8/13 - GAME DAY THREAD

    If Martin could run it would be his first RBI too. Reid-Foley living dangerously so far, lots of fly balls. Although he did mow down Mondesi after he gave up the HR. See if he settles down now.
  6. 2018 MLB Trade Rumors and Deadline Thread

    When you are trading a rental you trade for the most value. Figure it out later as far as needs go. They now have infielders who are not rentals that they can start shopping. Pretty sure Diaz and Solarte will be traded now.

    Tough to say with the Orioles. They weren't exactly in the race last year when they brought up Austin Hays with only 200+ AA AB's. Diaz has 3x that amount. From everything I have read he has learned as much as he is going to learn from AA. I agree though there it would not be wise for them to lose out on a year of service time though. Hays I believe was a year older than Diaz when he hit the majors though too. Giving him the cup of coffee this year and then starting the year in the minors again next year also makes some sense.
  8. Kawhi Leonard 2018-19 Season Thread

    I guess if you are comparing California to Toronto then yeah the winters suck. Otherwise Toronto is the same as Boston or New York weather wise. Now east or western Canada you get some worse winters or if you are talking really far north. Newfoundland had a snow storm a few weeks ago. It basically snowed 3 times in Toronto all winter. Didn't get my snowblower out once in the past 3 years.

    He was hitting .400 since his recent callup. He looked good reading the defence.
  10. 7/5 - GAME DAY THREAD

    I guess it’s true. 1 out and already 4-0.
  11. 7/5 - GAME DAY THREAD

    I hope is incorrect and Cueto is not throwing 87 mph 4 seam fastballs and 86 mph change ups. Yikes if it is true.
  12. Chris Paddack - SP SD

    From Rotowire: Paddack was moved up to Double-A San Antonio on Thursday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. Spin: Paddack cruised through the High-A level, posting a 2.24 ERA and 0.90 WHIP over 10 starts with Lake Elsinore. In just 52.1 innings, he racked up a remarkable 83:4 K:BB after missing the entire 2017 season due to Tommy John surgery he underwent in August of 2016. Look for him to remain with San Antonio for the rest of this season.
  13. Josh Donaldson 2018 Outlook

    You can’t possibly think it is his choice. The organization is protecting it’s investment making sure he is fully healed by the trade deadline in order to maximize his value. They are not going to risk having this linger and getting nothing for him.
  14. Toronto Blue Jays 2018 Outlook

    They pretty much hit the skids after the Osuna pending suspension. Donaldson injuries are hurtIng the offense. Seems they have a key person out everywhere with Stroman as well. Basically there best hitter, best pitcher and best RP are all out for significant amounts of time.
  15. Toronto Blue Jays 2018 Outlook

    At this point Happ might bring in a bigger haul than JD. As far as up and comers don’t forget about Reid-Foley, had a great outing a couple days ago.
