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

From May 2016: I think that Soler has been a little unlucky. His average exit velocity is 92.3mph, which is about the same as Rizzo's exit velocity. And his exit velocity has been stable - standard deviation is only 12.7mph. As a comparison, Harper's exit velocity is 91.7mph and standard deviation ...

Re: TV thread

The creators are talking like season 3 is essentially going to be a Breaking Bad -esque descent for David, so maybe they are just going all in on him being pretty awful a la his comic counterpart. Still, the way it ended up last season isn't really clicking for me even along those lines. It jus...

Back in the day this would have been the kind of thing everyone laughed and laughed at West Side Rooter/Little Lord Fontenot for. Now everyone is inexplicably desperate to have a Jake Fox of their very own.

Dude, use the tweet script already. It was already annoying because you can't quote the tweet as an embed without them, but embedded tweets often end up in limbo thanks to work ad blockers without the script.

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Weird timing for this since Harper has been back to slaying fools for a month now.

Also weird to be pondering moves of this magnitude because of Bote.

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Okay I didn’t read the responses. It’s very cool. Yeah, didn't mean it as a comparison really. Just was looking at Manny's stats and remembering how good he was and it's crazy to me that Javy is on that level overall this year. Speaking of crazy stats, I also saw something on Twitter comparing Brya...

what was the matter with maddon using the manny comp? He said if he ever laid off the slider low and away, meaning if he ever learned patience. It's obviously never going to happen but what the hell is wrong with making those comments about your player? Javy isn't exactly a guy who wilts under pres...

Gotcha; that makes more sense. He said he didn't press charges because he knows where the SJG works and was going to take care of his own business. Holy horsefeathers.
