Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I've never had anything crazy happen to me other than a beaning here and there. In practice in HS a guy somehow managed to foul off a juggs ball while taking a full swing and hit himself in the face and splits his whole lip open and lost some teeth. I was standing right there and still don't underst...

Re: NBA Playoffs (bulls also)

I think he can be a version of Curry in the current NBA. You think he can be that good of a shooter? I don't see a scorer out of Ball like Curry/IT/Harden/etc where he scores like 24+ pts/game. I see him more like of a Jason Kidd mold (with a slightly better offensive game) where he'll go like 18/6...

Re: NBA Playoffs (bulls also)

As a Laker fan I really want Lonzo more than anyone (also keep Russell, they can co-exist as both are plenty capable of doing things off ball. Russell is actually really good at catch and shoot numbers). So I'm excited. Just shoot Lavar to mars. Josh Jackson would be the only other guy at 2 I'd eve...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-12-17

is there such a thing as too much of a disparity between fb/ch? it almost seems like if you're geared up for 98 and you see 81 coming a hitter might have enough time to recognize and adjust (something that actually sounds disgustingly difficult to an average human like myself as I say it) I remembe...

He only went to 27 Nick Allen, SS, Francis Parker (San Diego) High School The biggest knock on Allen is his size -- he’s maybe 5-foot-8 and maxed out -- but he’s a true shortstop who has hit ever...

Re: Stock Up/Stock Down

What's the thoughts on Zagunis? He's still walking a horsefeathers load, the Ks are way up but he's nearly equaled his HRs from last year already. Kind of a mixed bag but the power uptick is nice.

Re: The Cardinals

It's a lot easier to probably scout and judge a pitcher is ready from the low levels than it is a hitter. If a pitchers stuff is good, it's good and is probably easier to scout/figure out if it can play at the ML level quicker than moving a hitter up at such a young age/low level. Also their arms a...

Terry Collins.... How do you prepare for a suspension? He also said that the Mets had prepared for the possibility of a suspension on Saturday night, when they beat the Marlins, 11-3. “To be honest,” Collins said, “there were some moves made last night because we felt this might occur, that we had t...

After some thorough due diligence they must not have been able to find any relatives to make Anderson go on the bereavement list.
