  1. Thanks to both. I do feel like people are a little low on Gleyber compared to Tatis considering what he did last yeah, I just don’t know if either deal gets me anywhere before Wander comes up.
  2. Thanks. i typically go “one in the hand” with players, and I don’t necessarily want to pass up a top 20ish guy waiting on someone. But the “new ball” and the way prospects have come up and immediately mashed gave me reservations.
  3. Reservations about his BA considering k rate and babip?
  4. Have two offers on the table. Which one do folks prefer? Muncy + Wander for Tatis Suarez + Wander for Gleyber or I can (obviously) hold. thoughts?
  5. Remember: Andy Marte? Lastings Milledge? Matt LaPorta? once, about an off-season before he was called up and immediately became a first rounder, I dropped Hanley Ramirez after getting him as the last piece in a trade because “he doesn’t hit for any power”.
  6. Oh my god. The Straily pimping debacle was what I was literally coming in here to post about. Lol
  7. This. And to those who held through the position battle during spring training knowing Daniel Murphy would probably hurt himself and open a spot for both him and Hampson...lol
  8. He looked quite good and just got a little tired. His breaking stuff was filthy last night.
  9. Well well...look who’s hitting jacks off Cole Hamels...
  10. Only thing to add here is that it’s clear he changed his swing. He was sort of jump pivoting with his back foot and bringing it forward in the box last year. It looked awful. His head jerked around it threw the bat out of the strike zone while he rolled over with one hand. The timing of the front foot was weird too. Ugly AF. In ST he’s planting and sticking the back foot and using that to rotate his hips and stay on the ball and following through. It’s much better. Better than his minor league swing which had some of the above in it No idea if he will be good. That’s kind of relative when you’re a 53 wrc+ player for almost a full season. No idea if he does have success he’ll be able to continue that when pitchers adjust. It’s more just a step in the right direction. He may actually be able to translate his talent to the field
  11. I love this rays system. It’s entirely possible I’ll have a Lowe - Brujan - Wander infield with McKay in my rotation. Just really fantastic prospects who can give you very different things. For Brujan, even without the power profile (which even then has started to creep up) his on base skills and speed make him a more dangerous Dee Gordon.
  12. I had to move fast this offseason to get the #1 waiver to snag him. Baaaaaarely beat the prospect lists.
  13. Spot on. And not super surprising he is having a hard time vs major league quality sliders. He’s 19 and can already lay off ones outside the zone, so I would expect him to progress as he gets older to having some success against the pitch. Mostly, it isn’t just some revelation pitchers just had on how to beat him.
