I don't like imagining the catastrophic chain of events that would have to occur for Chesny Young to spend plenty of time with the Cubs.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-27-17

But the slash line TT cited isn't a small sample, it's the entirety of his minor league career. His small sample size results in AAA are considerably worse.

Man, I know they just swept us, but the Pirates without Marte and Kang are a pretty damn bad team.

A lot of ugly batting lines so far. 5 HR in 8 games... really seems improbable with these guys. Rizzo, he looks like he's only interested in swinging at middle-cut sliders that are diving below the zone. Kyle and Willy are striking out a ton.

Leonard was higher ranked than Richmond. that's what I thought, but couldn't remember for sure. 247 composite rankings had Richmond (29) one spot ahead of Leonard.

I disagree, always can use point guards that can play.


Agreed. Thankfully, we already have like 3 guys who can fill that role. For now, anyway.

Amauri Hardy will probably be one of them, from what I have read. I wonder if DJW and Jordan stay with the team.

Re: ITT: Raisin & Tom/King Kong Obsess Over Shohei Otani

It really makes no sense the new rule wasn't grandfathered in. Ya think teams would've altered their IFA strategies and signed less 16 year olds if they knew going over would preclude them from a chance at Shohei horsefeathering Otani?
