Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-25-18

Bailey Clark went 4 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K on 58 pitches in his first start of 2018.

He topped out at 97. Hopefully he remains in the rotation all season.

Re: Mariners acquire Colome, Span

My lasting memory of Span is him running in Contreras and Báez’ singles in the 9th inning of Game 4 of the 2016 NLDS.

What a light haul for the Rays.

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

I did not. I think I saw Clapp retweet the trade during the game today. Just the first spot my mind went with the IFA money talk this week since it’s not like he was getting traded for much and I didn’t know where the Rangers were at penalty wise or that it was too early to do trades for our purpos...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

We traded Michael Roth to the Rangers apparently. Do they have any IFA money to trade that could be coming back? Not that I’d assume it would be anything great but if they are in the penalty box who knows? You saw that idiot Charles the Cat trying to suggest this, didn't you? I did not. I think I s...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

I haven't followed draft prospects very closely this year. What's the deal with Seth Beer? Statistically, he looks so much better than the other college bats mocked in the late first, but he isn't a first round pick in most mock drafts. Is his defense that bad? First base/DH only? Bad defense (even...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

This is a guy I’d love if he lasted till the Cubs 2nd rounder (though an outing like today’s probably cements him in the top 50). I like the idea of drafting guys with a plus pitch if you’re drafting a non high ceiling pitcher outside the first and Roberts definitely has a plus slider. https://twitt...

So Justin Wilson has no value to Baltimore -- I know that. It would have to be some three-team trade where Justin Wilson goes to Team C and they send a couple prospects to Baltimore. You're not getting a whole lot for Wilson right now. i dont think Justin Wilson has any value to anyone right now. M...
