Re: Baez impresses Baez

Someone needs to hook me up to this with clips of Javy's rookie season so I don't write a Javy article:

I had to include that somewhere in the article. I've been cracking up about it since he posted it in whatever game thread it was in.

Re: Jagoff About Willson Contreras Here, You Lazy Jerkoffs

It's Darvish's 6th season and Contreras' 3rd; to paint it in REALLY broad strokes like it's potentially some raw-ass rookie just off the bus chewing out Nolan Ryan fresh off of his latest headlock is more than a tad disingenuous. Yeah, I'm not even going to bother reading it to get the gist of the ...

Re: Gleyber Torres Getting Called up to the Bigs

I could be wrong. Sometimes Aaron Judge turns into Aaron Judge. But if I'm betting on an all-bat guy with huge raw power, I'm going to look for a young guy that is putting up Giancarlo Stanton-like numbers in the minors. Eloy just doesn't impress me that much. I think Eloy will be a good hitter. I t...

Re: Gleyber Torres Getting Called up to the Bigs

I'm pretty confident in saying Eloy will be better than Nomar Mazara. I have no idea how Mazara is doing right now lol. Not as well as everyone thought he'd be doing. No one was comping Mazara to Miguel Cabrera. I mean that comp is ridiculous for any prospect, but some scout/exec said that about El...

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

That's sexy. Basically hitting the ball hard and in spots on the field when it isn't going out of the park where the fielders aren't and when he tries to power one it's going to where it should be going in the air. I wonder how much longer such an exaggerated shift will be kept on him if he keeps g...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

I was vehemently against trading Javy because I always felt that we'd never get enough in return to offset the upside + fun factor (I've wanted Cards fans to hate him ever since he screamed "I can do whatever the horsefeathers I want" at the Angels rookie ball team back in the day). I esp...

I've never been on board with trading him, but, admittedly, others were a lot higher on him than I was.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I know Chatwood has walked like half of the batters he's faced, but Alex Cobb has given up 20 hits in 7 innings and has a 15.43 ERA in his first two starts.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

There had to be some serious topspin on that, too. When it first hit the grass, it just took off. I'm not sure of the physics of everything with the wet grass. But, from that Fangraphs article looking at similarly hit balls, that data doesn't include spin. So I'm wondering if it has something to do ...
