Re: Summer Camp 2020

Almora has hit leadoff on one of the teams in all the scrimmages so far. So that’s cool they keep being complete horsefeathering morons with that idea.

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

Jake’s run is still horsefeathering insane. Don’t think we’ll ever get that feeling again where you know pitcher is going 7+ and if the offense gets to 2-3 runs we are going to win. I remember games we scored 1 in the first he started and it was like “well this is over.”

Re: Golf thread

I am starting to learn to golf. It is difficult, in case anyone didn't know. I grew up playing baseball only in summers, think I took one golf lesson when I was like 10. Started playing a little in college and after but still played softball mostly in summers until I was ~25 (32 now). Started takin...

Under control to the point of having full stadiums of fans by April, no clue. I think it will be under control enough/understood even better that they can have a full season starting in April though.

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

The Belgian government just decided that masks will be mandatory in all shops (and churches and a number of other places) from next Saturday. From what I've read here, this wouldn't fly in the US. Little late in the game, no? It's been par for the course in New Jersey, and I believe many other stat...

Re: Morrow Back on Minor League Deal

More sorrow for Morrow https://twitter.com/ByRobertMurray/status/1280989964298342402 He would’ve broke anyways, but horsefeathering Joe using him against the rules they allegedly set is still infuriating. He was horsefeathering awesome for his ~30 innings or whatever. He was worth almost 1 WAR for ...

This puts us at 51. Would prefer Perez makes the active, expanded, roster over Descalso.

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

He kinda started throwing this new 2-seam/sinker/split/change pitch last year late in the year when he was rolling, iirc. His split use % was at an all time high last year (which I think is what the track man data classifies this new pitch as) and his FB was at a low. Think he’s been working with th...

Re: NFL Offseason

I wasn't aware of the ability to lock in a specific % of the cap. If that exists, that obviously helps with any downside. Per a few posts after this, guarantees matter a ton as well. If not a lot is guaranteed, he's potentially in a position where they just have endless team options (in effect). Be...

Re: NFL Offseason

That seems likely dumb on his part, but we'll see. The rumors are it’s going to approach $500 mil and they’ll tie it to him getting a % of the cap (I’ve seen 16-18%) so he gets the team/league revenue benefit, why is it dumb to not lock that in? The downside is appreciably higher, imo, going short ...

Already seeing some “Almora made a swing change and looks good” and “hopefully Almora finally gets consistent playing time to reach his potential” tweets since the start back up.

If everything comes together, he could become the second 30-30 player in club history after Sammy Sosa Theo willing, he is the 4th after Sosa, Lindor, and Baez Javy’s only topped 30 HRs once and only got to over 20 SBs (21) once. You think he’s gonna be able to do that as a 29+ year old (since he w...
