  1. Any thoughts as to the limited utilization of that change up? More feel for that pitch comes and goes game to game, or more game planning against his opponents? The vertical slider is also a really nice looking pitch
  2. If the Dodgers have an interest for Quintana he'd be a perfect piece to send over and we could finally see him break in as an AL regular . Him and moncada in the top half of that order would project some very high upside production.
  3. He didn't give in with Thames or Shaw today and was adamant on trying to paint the outside to lefties. Laz Diaz was very inconsistent on giving that strike and lance had a lot of borderline 3-2 pitches resulting in BB's. I wouldnt have wanted him to go after those 2 any other way.
  4. World baseball classic
  5. The home run issues don't look like they are going anywhere anytime soon. Someone is getting him deep every time out. Gonna be hard to contribute giving up the long ball every start.
  6. Jared Massey @JaredJMassey Final line on Walker Buehler: 4 IP, 6 Hits, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 Ks, 53 pitches, 39 strikes. 3/2 ground/fly. Touched 100 twice. Curve was filthy.
  7. David Phelps is gonna rack up a bunch of holds and has high K upside. I also feel like he's gonna pitch in 10 saves this year (some of the 2 inning variety)
  8. Front office was quoted over the winter stating he will have no restrictions on IP this year. The only reason that he slots 5th in the rotation to open the season is because they purposely gave him a late start to spring training to make sure he was fresh coming off the big jump he made last year.
  9. Charlie was well on his way to doing this last year and a leg injury cut the breakout short. This more of the same from what he displayed last season prior to the injury
  10. Cardinals have no reason to limit his innings and this is a contact year where ol' Lance will be looking to get paid. If he was on an imposed IP limit , I don't think St. Louis would have him as the spring training IP leader thus far in camp.
  11. I think the inconsistency came from the organization yo-yo'ing him betweeen 1 and 3. When this guy settles in and gets locked in it's fun to watch. Count me in as a buyer as well.
  12. Brinson is on the way too
  13. Looks a little like MadBums release point
  14. I don't think anyone else wants to sacrifice elite velocity for sound mechanics, no matter how much it makes sense in the long run. Instant results and a faster track to that possible 30m/year deal
  15. Have you had a chance to read up on McCullers change in mechanics and are you a believer? Many experts believe he's poised to contend for a cy young but that requires 190+ innings I'd say. If I remember your past work correctly you saw a ton of red flags with him and had serious doubts he could ever last multiple seasons on a full workload.
