  1. No way. That would be awesome, But I'm not sure if it's entirely out of the question. Yes, its entirely out of the question. He's still just in A ball and still has some control issues. Dominating Advanced A ball the way he is, he could already be MLB productive. If his innings are in line and The Pirates need him they could easily roster him for the playoffs, honestly they should roster him regardless of ever pitching him or not. Yes not likely but extremely ignorant to say impossible. I don't disagree with "impossible". Kids tearing it up, but a jump from A Ball to a playoff race isn't happening. Especially with his command issues.
  2. No one mentioned Kirby Puckett? Some others: Terry Pendleton Kent Hrbek Bengie Molina David Ortiz
  3. After 42 games in Low-A, I'm sure he's good to go.
  4. Let's see what he does out of Rookie Ball before we declare him a star.
  5. I'm rooting for Fried since he's a member of the tribe. He definitely held his own in Low-A as a 19-year old, but he was far from dominant. Both Fried and Rob Kaminsky (another member of the tribe) have plus curveballs. Jon Moscot could be a decent back-end starter. I hope one of them pans out. I read that Fried actually studied how Koufax threw his curveball. The last Jewish starter who really did anything significant was Steve Stone back in 1980. So it's been awhile.
  6. Mark Fidrych Mike Caruso Angel Berroa Walt Dropo Tom Herr Shingo Takatsu Rick Wilkins
  7. This is why I said to throw out 1987. We now have a Hall of Famer who's a One Year Wonder. Boggs was a great hitter. I never said he was a one-year wonder. Only that he never had a season close to that HR total. Thanks for putting words in my mouth, though. Isn't the thread supposed to be a discussion on one year wonders? I suppose, but I interpreted it as career-years for players. You don't have to follow threads to a tee.

  9. Norm Cash and his corked bat in 1961. Luis Gonzalez and his roids in 2001. Wade Boggs hit 24 HRs in 1987. The most he ever hit in a season after that was 11. Jacoby Ellsbury in 2011.
  10. In theory, it's a good matchup. You never know, though.
  11. Have you actually seen him in person? I have and for the life of me I don't get all the hype.
  12. I realize they don't evaluate from a fantasy perspective. To be a starting catcher you've got to be able to hit a little. Right now I'd say Hedges is destined to be a backup catcher for most of his career, and that kind of player is a dime a dozen. As I have said multiple times, he is nothing special. Lindor, at least, appears to have made strides offensively.
  13. .263/.337/.404 In a hitter's league Once again the scouts have fallen in love with an overrated prospect and refuse to admit he's not that good. He might be a great catcher, but he is not a great hitter.
  14. Brett Anderson hasn't been fantasy-relevant for some time now. Strikeouts are mediocre, and he can't stay on the field. He's 25 years old going on 50. There was reason to be optimistic about him for awhile, but those days are long gone. It's time for the A's to move on and begin the Straily and Gray rotation era.
