Re: Felipe Vazquez is going to jail

Even if he somehow only gets a short sentence, I can't see MLB ever allowing him to step on the field again. Pretty huge blow to the Pirates.

Maybe you should bench him if you're not going to let him do anything but hand off and throw screens.

Trubisky literally contributes 0 yards on the drive.

So apparently the secret is to just not let Mitch throw.

It's time for Mitch to see the bench. He checks down as often as Kyle Orton but with half the accuracy when he actually goes down field.

Re: "Time makes fools of us all" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

Not sure what he changed at the ASB but since then

165PAs .264/.358/.667 with 16 bombs on a .222babip. His first half K% was 28.3 and his second half has dropped to 17.6%. That's good for a 154wRC+.

Re: Minor League Musings

I don't get the Amaya omission at all. A 20 year old catcher with a plus arm who is putting up a 122wRC+ in A+ isn't top 100 while a 21 year old catcher also in A+ with a plus arm and a 104wRC+ is #64 on the list.

Re: The Cardinals

This isn’t popular with my Cardinal fan buddies but Gorman will be a much better player than Carlson. I know the FSL and how hard it is on young hitters I’m not that worried. He will crush the Texas League. Hell Carlson struggled mightily until he was promoted. Carlson’s ceiling is the sky but I ha...

What league are you talking about? Gorman is one of five 19 year olds in FSL and is only doing worse than Wander Franco (great prospect in his own right) and Jose Devers (guy in Stanton trade). Both good prospects. Your other point is noted.....thanks. Not trying to troll but just cutting the BS th...

If we're talking chicken sandwiches from fast food joints then one vote for the chicken parmesan at Buona Beef, though I do agree the Wendy's spicy chicken is pretty great.

Re: Minor League Musings

In the majors I'd agree that we'd pretty much ignore a small sample like 27IP, but in the minors where prospects make huge strides fairly often, I'd weight what we've seen lately a lot more heavily.

With Hamilton getting DFA'd, I'd be game to DFA Almora and let Hamilton replace him. Neither can hit at all, but at least Hamilton provides value on the bases and plays better defense.

Hey, I was just curious what realistic expectations for Underwood are. He looked really good yesterday, but obviously those weren't high-stakes innings. Could he be a valuable bullpen piece?

This is why I don't even sweat trading Eloy. You have to rake so hard to be valuable when your defense is an atrocity in the OF.
