Re: Darvish to DL, Tricep Tendonitis

If it’s something serious I hope he/they don’t horsefeathers around with it though and try to do that PRP injection stuff and just opt for surgery to get it out of the way.


I know it’s easy to say on a message board to “just get surgery” but that injection procedure never seems to work.

Re: Darvish to DL, Tricep Tendonitis

This is usually a bad thing, isn’t it? What’s bizarre is I felt his stuff the last two starts looked like normal (pre-Cub) Yu Darvish. Obviously with pitchers, who the horsefeathers knows, and guys still pitch through these things frequently. Or maybe it happened in a side session, etc. But this ti...

I’ve seen him do that in almost every start going back to spring so just figured it was a thing he did, but who knows

Rondon and Neli Ramirez are the only guys from the ML roster I can really think of under Theo having arm injuries.

You saw that idiot Charles the Cat trying to suggest this, didn't you? I did not. I think I saw Clapp retweet the trade during the game today.

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

Braves, Rangers, Giants or Padres would be my guesses as landing spots. Braves have done salary deals before and it’s his hometown, Rangers seem to always be looking to do something, Giants always need outfielders and his defense in that park would be good and they have money/lose some guys this yea...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

Oh for sure. His stats are very impressive and I like his swing actually. It's just you're not getting any value on defense from him so the bat has to be pretty special. It might be too soon but I brought up if there were any bat only college guys this year for a future Rizzo replacement (maybe tha...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

He is indeed considered a 1B/DH only type player. He played RF his freshman year and seemed okay to me on video, but reports say he was pretty bad out there. Some scouting reports don't like his swing and worry about how he'll perform with a wooden bat. I don't have a strong opinion on him, but his...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

I haven't followed draft prospects very closely this year. What's the deal with Seth Beer? Statistically, he looks so much better than the other college bats mocked in the late first, but he isn't a first round pick in most mock drafts. Is his defense that bad? First base/DH only? I like him a lot ...
