  1. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but last year was when Reed became a household name. I don't recall seeing him on many top prospect lists until the middle of last season. Giolito on the other hand I've heard hyped up for a very long time. I do see the parallel in that I have no huge concerns about Reed. 2014: Baseball America College Player of the Year (http://www.baseballamerica.com/college/college-player-of-the-year-kentuckys-reed-starred-at-plate-on-mound/), Also was his draft year, and he had a very good pro debut after that. 2015: Runner up for Baseball America Player of the Year to Blake Snell (http://www.baseballamerica.com/minors/reeds-stats-squelch-big-body-stereotypes/). Obviously he had a very successful year as well. 2016: This year. Slow start. Also hurt. Its a little different when you are drafted out of HS in regards to pedigree but Reed has done nothing but look good since at least his draft year.
  2. this is like the giolito thread from a month ago. giolito has and always was a stud pitching prospect and reed has and always will be a stud hitting prospect. a little adversity in a small sample size at a new level doesnt change that.
  3. A little adversity and everyone scatters. Its amazing. This guy is still the highest ceiling arm in the minors.
  4. They got him on the Mike Zunino program, clearly.
  5. The TJ doesn't make him an injury risk, all the injuries he has had do. AND I STILL LOVE HIM!!! He is just so damn good when he is on the mound he is well worth targeting almost regardless of draft spot. Obviously I wouldn't take him in RD 3 but if his draft spot is cheap then reaching for him won;t be a problem at all.
  6. Who is this Bean player you speak of? Is he Potato Man's backup? Why would you need to handcuff Potato Power? Potatos are far superior to Beans anyways.
  7. So is this Potato starting or not? William "The Potato" Powell... I like it.
  8. I have to say I am surprised. I would think now would be the time to invest in Powell yet I read more about how it is time to abondon him. That is until I read this... I am not so sure how much I believe that was a shoulder injury though. He looked like he got knocked out cold.
  9. I don't know how people can say ARI has a solid offensive line. I am sure there are some backward stats that quantify bull**** that doesn't matter but they are clearly a bottom 10 line easily. They give up lots of SACKs and have very poor RUSH stats, yet people come on here and defend them based on nonsensical gibberish.
  10. For Robrain... “This is America, and in America, you're never finished as long as you have a (ro)brain in your head, because all a man really needs is an idea.” ―Herbert Powell
