Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-22-18

Does anyone have some free time to scroll through all his past tweets? It's not too many... If he's legit, we really don't want any Haderesque nasty surprises down the road. Just sayin'.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Seems like the Mets would want Victor Caratini included since they don’t have a decent catcher and don’t look to have one any time soon right? I hadn’t seen him mentioned at all here. They might have to make a secondary deal for a backup catcher but that shouldn’t be to hard.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-1-18

He's been sitting 92-94 in at least some starts. Still some chance he adds some velo? hes young and kinda thin right? Eh, he's not really young. He'll turn 25 in September. But, he did add velo this year, so who knows, I guess? At any rate, 92-94 is just fine anyway. He definitely needs to be moved...

Re: Shohei Ohtani Signs with Angels

Well this is disappointing. The Angel's seem like the choice if you want to hide. Arguably the best player in baseball has been invisible there for years. It's certainly not where you go if you are looking for marketing opportunities or if you want to compete for that matter. What a bizarre choice. ...

Re: Cubs sign Jon Jay

I don't have a problem with this. It's a 1 year deal and gives you another option in CF. I really kind of feel like they have plenty of versatility in the OF already and this just gives you an additional option. I didn't want to see them use trade chips for an outfielder. Maybe he had a multi year o...
