Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel



It is legitimately tough to imagine this movie will be anything less than the best movie ever made.

Nelon Velazquez is hitting .277/.356/.538 in ~75 July PAs. Hopefully he believes in himself next year for South Bend

Replace Trubisky with Sam Darnold and that's where my football fandom is.

Delvin Zinn with his third multi hit game in a row. He opened the weekend pushing the Mendoza line IIRC and is now hitting .277. There's nothing else good about his season line but he has cut down on striking out and is putting more balls in the air. Lange's pitching really well and Jose Gutierrez i...

Given how they've assigned any teenage bat that shows any hint of serious potential, maybe he gets South Bend to set up starting next year in full season A ball.

July 14: Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard would be the prizes of the starting pitching market if the Mets decided to trade either of their two aces.

Jorge Remon threw 4 no hit innings for a DSL Cubs squad today. The most notable thing about him so far is that he's the second youngest pitcher on the team and leads in IP.

Jonathan Bruzual is a weird potential prospect. As a pro he's thrown 50 innings and has 52 Ks. That's good. He's given up 54 walks. That's bad. He's also not given up a HR. That's good. He's also allowed 50 runs. That's bad. I'm most impressed he hasn't blown out his arm or given up more than the 9 ...
