Re: Kris Bryant is awesome and we were always right to love him

He’s also walking more, K’ing less, not hitting popups at all...and it’s less that he is not pulling the ball so much as going to the opposite field way more often than CF. That’s what he did running through the minors mostly, so possibly good things are coming?

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-22-19

Nico Hoerner’s at .327/.421/.490 with a 12% K rate I'm just as impressed with the matching 12.3% BB rate in the early going for him. He didn't walk much at all in college, and I was hoping he wasn't going to be a guy like Almora who can make contact early and never takes walks. 169 wRC+ in the earl...

Re: 2019 Draft Thread



Like Toglia, Wallner’s been really hot after a slow start. I wonder where he fits in the draft as a potential two way player, could and maybe should be one of the many college players to come off before Theo drafts

I think the Bronn situation is Varys and begins the end of the Lannisters. There was a scene with Varys and Tyrion too?

Jonathan Sierra’s 1/3 with a double. He’s hitting .300 with a <10% K rate which would be most cool if there was any power behind it. The double is his second XBH of the season, also a double While no one’s really breaking out in a big way it seems Ademan, Sierra, and Velazquez are holding up in full...

Carerra came in for SB and gave up a couple HRs to go along with 3 Ks and no walks. Gotta think whether Theo planned this or not, for sure Carrera had different ideas for the start of the season. Hopefully he starts believing in himself again and turns it around
