Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-22-19

The Indians and Brewers DSL clubs are probably so scared of Yohendrick Pinango that they joined forces to take him on today. They've managed to hold him back so far, 0/2 and in the midst of his first slump as a pro, but are still losing. Pinango's line has slipped some but we're still talking argua...

Very close to just writing him entirely off.


Already did this last year.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-15-19

Might have gotten mentioned elsewhere, but two home runs from Happ tonight. Him starting to finally hit well is a terrific thing in advance of trade season. I'm more interested in having a potential Almora replacement since the trade market is pretty much lacking in any interesting CFers not named ...

I was just perusing through the twitters, and ran across this from last night.




Strumpf is either going up to South Bend or has an injury of some kind.

And Jensen catches the yips in his pro debut. 3 walks. An rbi single allowed. Zero Ks. About as bad as you could draw up.

Have to wonder if both of them changed their asking prices after the draft or just Hendrie that threw the wrench in the works.

Re: 2019 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

I'm guessing Mack Chambers is signing. Weird to call that news at this point, since he supposedly agreed to terms weeks ago. Yeah, but it isn't "official." The agreeing to terms weeks ago is how Callis knows it's going to be official today. Just my guess. It also helps if I remember that ...

Re: Minor League Musings

I agree 100% that it would kill parity. No it wouldn't. The biggest spenders aren't going to be able to horde everybody any more than they already can. A team's operating budget will still be a budget. If a Baltimore only wants to spend $60m on the major league roster they will have all the money i...
