Re: #NotAllPitchers

Anyone else remember the 'Nelson will be back in the rotation in June' headlines before spring training? I still can't believe those were written, he tore his labrum in September.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

If you consider Javy's biggest plate discipline problem to be picking up sliders, those adjustments seem pretty shrewd. Clearly he's able to pick up curveball spin and punish it, and jumping on pitches less likely to be chase pitches makes it easier to find pitches he can drive.

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

The problem I have with Bote the launch angle enthusiast is that the narrative doesn't exactly track the results. They mention doing so last summer around the all-star break, but Bote was better earlier in the year. His Iowa performance is good(and he did improve his IsoP, although that's at least p...

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

I've been cowardly waiting for Bote to not kill the ball for a game to express a similar sentiment. He can have all the exit velocity he wants, I'm not going to feel one bit upset about any starts that Russell, Baez, Happ, or Zobrist get over him. They're better. Doesn't mean he's not potentially us...

"They potentially got worse defensively at 2 IF spots" does not equal "they got worse as a team." Villar: .304 wOBA this year, .313 career Schoop: .306 wOBA this year, .320 career Trading for Villar for Schoop and moving him to SS is an objective downgrade, not just inefficient....

Re: Regular Season Rumors

The Brewers using league-best defensive efficiency to take a rotation full of 5th starters to the top of the NL and then lighting it on fire to add a couple mediocre bats to their lineup sure is something.

Neil Huntington is my favorite of all the hedge fund GMs. I don't like Archer much as a trade target anymore(certainly not with Happ involved), but getting him out of the AL East and into PNC National Forest will help, and I don't think he was gonna do much better for a couple toolboxes like Glasnow...

This trade deadline screams "in the playoffs we're fine with the guys already on the team who will get 99% of the innings, we just need to bridge all the 4th-7th innings until then". I'm good with that, I just hope they're right about the health of Edwards and Morrow in particular to make ...
