Re: Levine- Theo Epstein putting Stock in Soler

In 1996, Sheffield hit 42 HR. Javy might conceivably be capable of that feat.

He also had a 21% walk rate and a 9.7% strikeout rate. Javy is not remotely capable of either of those feats.

Re: Star Wars Thread

i get you had a blast and that's what's important. I'm just pointing out that in order to have Harrison Ford in the movie they made stupid decisions with the backstory to this trilogy. If you needed Ford to truly appreciate the thrill ride, then the writers made the correct decision and...

Didn't Baez have some Vlad comps at some point? Lol really? If there were I hope it was before he saw a single professional AB.

Hopefully winning the division is not the goal.

Right, because they should adopt that proven formula for winning it all once you make the playoffs.

Re: Star Wars Thread

They should have left Han and Leia out of this. Ford was ok but Carrie fisher isn't. And when they had their scenes together it just rips you out of the movie. You're wrong about everything They could have exhumed Alec Guinness' remains and it would have had more presence than Carrie Fisher. I bet ...

Re: Good FG article on Cahill

Much stranger things have happened than a formerly ineffective starter becoming a good reliever. Isn't that like how 90% of relievers come about? Probably more, I can't imagine there are many guys who only ever got pure reliever innings while making it to and then through pro ball. There's a decent...

Good FG article on Cahill

The Revitalization of Trevor Cahill Maybe Cahill’s last two months of 2015 was a mirage, and he’ll revert to something closer to his less effective ways. But given how many changes he’s made, the increase in velocity, and the results he’s shown in that small sample, we should at least be intrigued ...

Re: Star Wars Thread

There's a heck of a difference between the general plot outline being similar vs having nothing original. If you abstract plot lines enough, there are very few original movies ever made.
