Re: Our future at CF?

Fowler at 4/60 makes sense in a lot of ways. I guess I have to doubt myself a bit because so many on here think that Fowler can and will get that type of contract, but I just still don't see it happening. Nobody is going to make that kind of investment in a 30-year-old CF with a history of injuries...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-26-15

Well, Underwood got the poop beat out of him. Couldn't register an out in the 2nd inning and was lifted. Is there a more obvious "sell high" candidate in the system? Tell Amaro he hits 98 and that he doesn't strike anyone out because he's the only minor league pitcher on the planet truly ...

Re: Our future at CF?

Re: Our future at CF?

My top target is Jason Heyward. Since 4/23: .303/.351/.484/.359 wOBA / 130 wRC+ / 84% contact / 27% O-Swing / 6.7 SwStr / 93% Z-Contact Top rated defensive OFer in baseball from 2012-2014, arguably the best overall defensive player in 2014. Only issue is that he is not a "true" CF, probabl...

Re: 2015-16 International Free Agency Thread

Looks like we missed(or Kiley most likely added later) LHP Brailyn Marquez with us at 600K. He's 6'3, 175 with 87-91 velo at 16. Love the projectability guys we go after.... IPL has him at 6'5": https://twitter.com/iplbaseball_rd/status/561223990166192128 Not that 6'3" doesn't work for a ...

Re: 2015-16 International Free Agency Thread

I want Fox in this system, bad. Love the scouting reports on that guy - switch hitter, smooth defensive player, tested against top US competition of similar age...more a very interesting, U.S. HS draftee than an IFA.
