Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-20-18

Ho-hum. Another 2 plate appearances for Roederer, another two times on base... This guy horsefeathers Roederer has gotten on base in all 11 games of his pro career leading to a current OBP of exactly .500. Of those 11 games, 5 have been multi-hit affairs with a pattern of one every other game durin...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Yeah something is going on there. It might be completely legal and they’ve “hacked” pitching in which case good for them, but it also might not be.

Figure out a way to get Britton/Gausmen package or Shields/Soria package before Monday so we have a real bullpen arm and a real starter Monday. https://media.giphy.com/media/wYyTHMm50f4Dm/giphy.gif Soria’s numbers the last 2 years are damn impressive and Shields is better than Tseng, Underwood, who...

horsefeathers like this is only going to get worse since one of the Yankees/Red Sox is getting WC 1. “Could the Winner of AL WC 1 beat the NL All-Star Team, my column.”

Re: Brad Hand & Adam Cimber to Cleveland for Francisco Mejía

I don’t think Hand was a realistic target for us, so I’m glad the Indians got this done now because they were definitely getting a RP(s) and should be out on the more reasonable targets for us (Yates, Britton, Conley, Barraclaugh, etc).

Going off this then, would something like Albertos for Tyson Ross and Kirby Yates be something people would be willing to do?

Absolutely I’d rather have Richard than Ross though
