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? I want to see Euron v Zombie Mountain I can't think of a Varys scene in the past two seasons that wasn't also a Tyrion scene. Also, do you just want to see Euron die? I mean, that...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-16-19

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...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-15-19

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

Gotta #OwnUp for Bruzual. I had him listed in a large pool of possibly interesting arms between 16-20 behind Marquez and not some other guy last summer. I must, at my core, understand despite claims otherwise that I am no supreme expert. I would add Joel Machado to that pool of pitchers —— Hoerner s...

Re: Albie(s) Getting Paid

HOT TAKE: Albies is cromulent and deserves a cromulent contract. I think he is quite average, I just don’t see the point in him doing this deal even if he is just adequate. It wouldn’t have been overly difficult for him to reach $35 mil just through arbitration years, especially with a rookie year ...
