Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

I just can't figure this guy out. 6 years toiling in the minors, never really doing that much. starts this year hot at iowa, comes up and looks like the next superstar. Not saying hes the real deal but didnt he do pretty well the last 2 years in the minors plus a great Arizona Fall League this past...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Ive said it since he was a prospect that Javy reminds me more of the skinny lightning quick mid 90s Sammy but playing elite up the middle defense. Even mid 90s free swinging Sammy probably had better walk rates though. But thats more than made up for with Javy's defense, baserunning and premium posi...

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

Now that im rock hard Im dreaming of a lineup of

Bote 2b
Trout CF
Rizzo 1B
Bryant 3B
Schwarber LF
Baez SS
Contreras C
Heyward RF
Pitcher

Even has some nice righty, lefty, righty, lefty, righty balance through the middle of that murderers row of Trout, Rizz, KB, Schwarber, Baez.

This guy is actually good. Shockingly so. this may be a really dumbass suggestion for many reasons, BUT if we internally, love Bote and think he's some safe bet to be 3+ WAR, Corey Koskie redux, what does Billy Eppler say if you offer him up Bryant, Happ/Almora, ++ for Trout? how much does he try t...

The umps are terrible. Replay is definitely needed. Maybe adjust replay a bit but the Umps are so ridiculously wrong often & replay has proven that.

Plus it does not significantly slow a game down.

Its clear there needs to be an IFA draft. Would it be so terrible to include IFAs in the normal amateur draft? The 16 year old craziness obviously complicates things. You can draft a 16 year old from Latin America but not a Bryce Harper type here. There is also the decision making aspect of whether ...

That was a very good assessment of the team, though. It was the lazy get traffic assessment of the team and not really understanding that we are in a still really big window. it called them "perennial contenders" for the future. We've been lucky to have three straight years of 90+ wins, t...
