Re: Baez impresses Baez

Anyway, Javy continues showing signs of growth at the plate. I can't believe this dude is able to recognize pitches. He has to be terrifying to pitch to right now. He took a 1-2 or 2-2 cutter/slider vs Anderson tonight (I think his 2nd AB) off the outside corner that was a pretty good pitch but not...

But to be fair, to be SOTMRFIB, you can't really prioritize quantity.

The Deadspin article referenced some sort of guilt-trippy, emotional coersion along the lines of, “I’m depressed and will kill myself if you don’t send nudes!” My reaction was... that works? That, and, "holy horsefeathers, this person is seriously messed up." Between that and the weird se...

Re: John Mallee

Harping on Bryant's hangup sometimes when it comes to changeups like it's something that a different hitting coach would address makes no sense. Like, it seems to be complaining like the Cubs haven't noticed this, or likely haven't tried any number of approaches to improve Bryant's approach in that...
