  1. After all these years it's still hard for me to buy into a Colorado pitcher becoming an ace. They're already at a disadvantage because of the ballpark/elevation. It's gotta mess with their heads.
  2. That would mean his stats would only improve in his average (and steals). But, hitting for average has never been his strength. So, while .300 is possible it's not where I'd expect an improvement. It's his power. That's always been his strength. He's about to turn 26 and is coming off a great year so a slightly lower average in '19 wouldn't be a surprise. Over his prime years, though, I wouldn't be surprised if he had a couple years where he hit something like .285 40 110 125 20.
  3. Donaldson would be a good buy low target as long as you also have a couple more mid-late 3rd base options in mind. Do the homework and, if you're lucky, one can pan out to be good trade bait in May and another can be a keeper (for the rest of the season, at least).
  4. Right now, I'd say it has to be either Baez or Yelich.
  5. Looks like he wants to be one of the top 15 players in 2019.
  6. Kohl Stewart getting the call. Had some hype a few years ago . . . and then not so much. #4 pick overall in the 2003 draft. Who knows.
  7. Maybe they want to help their AAA team sell some merchandise.
  8. What I love it that he's smart enough to recognize that he needs to remember to make adjustments, to take advice about making adjustments, and then to make them.
  9. Yeah, right, I'd be happy with him being the starting 2nd baseman for the NL in the all-star game. But, that usually doesn't happen right away for the new guys.
  10. Yeah, just a LITTLE too many ab's before this year. Otherwise, . . .
  11. It's a shame that Ozzie doesn't have a shot at the ROY.
  12. Yep, most people expected around 12 homers for the SEASON. And he's matched that total in less than a 1/4 of the games. He'll go through stretches with less homers (and more steals) but I think it's up to people to prove that he's not legit, that he can't be a top 5 2nd baseman for the next 5+ years.
