Re: Regular Season Rumors

Hamels is solid, and with his contract the prospect cost should be minimal. I feel pretty comfortable hand waving away spikes in dongs allowed if they're not due to velocity loss. He's a rental. I would venture to guess there's no chance he gets to 200 IP this season to vest his option. he needs to...

I'm all in on Hamels' home/road splits. Texas is basically Coors but without the fanfare.

Re: Dogs Are Awesome, Yay Dogs!

We got a second dog! She’s an 8 month old Akita mix named Sylvie who is super sweet and playful. Maggie loves to provoke her and wrestle. Sylvie is bigger and puts her in her place. I’ll post some photos tomorrow EDIT: she doesnt look much like an Akita. She looks like the quizzical dog meme (more ...

Yeah but it's like a decade worth of control. Hand has all of this year and then 19, 20 and 21. Cimber has been really impressive and he's got less than a year of service time.

Re: The Manny Machado Thread

Just hope he doesn't sign a long term deal with LA in offseason He doesn't really fit there when they're healthy. Machado isn't a good SS and Seager is, so Machado would have to acquiesce to playing 3B full time. They'd also have to move Turner to 1B and Bellinger to their crowded OF. I guess you c...

MLB is making him take sensitivity training per ESPN. Probably the only thing they can do at this point. Hader’s said all the right things since this hit the news. If he’s smart or has smart people around him, he’ll do the sensitivity training with a smile on his face, come out saying that he learn...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-16-18

I don't agree with this at all. Any season-ending arm injury to a pitching arm is damning enough, with or without surgery, but then his performance when on the field was decidedly meh. It was only 8 starts, but he was striking out 2 guys less per 9 than last year in AA, while still throwing loads o...

Good news?


It's an extremely cautious timeline, which I am fine with, but this injury shouldn't be a 2 month ordeal like this. They don't really need to push him though and this should keep him fresh for October.
