  2. Pre-injury he had a 96.5 average exit velocity and 63.6% hard hit rate. Post-injury those numbers are 91.0 and 40.4%. I suppose it’s possible the wrist has something to do with that, but 91 EV and 40.4% hard hit are still really good. The pre-injury numbers were ridiculous and not really sustainable for anyone.

  4. Also look at the Patriots. They traded away Jimmy G just to kill any rumors and also get more draft capital to try and win. At the time of the trade Jimmy G showed impressive promise and Brady was 40. Like I said, Rodgers hasn’t gone about this the best way but Packers are still clowns.

  5. Good to see, but man was that slow pitch. If he can show some power in AA, giddy up, quite easily a top 50 fantasy prospect. Big test for him. Even if the power isn't significant, he's good enough to matter. That being said, an average power grade on him would go a very long way with his speed and defense. This a potential Lindor type asset if it all goes right.

  8. Currently in a heavy YouTube hole, so I figured I'd drag some of you into it with me. I love baseball movies, so randomly, here's the best baseball squad I could think of with a few clips/images-this didn't take as long as it seemed, but I tried to avoid too many characters from Major League-sorry Jake Taylor, although I'm sure no one would deny Crash his rightful spot. Any glaring omissions or obvious errors? Please feel free to add a few of your favorite baseball movie characters, scenes, etc., and mods, feel free to move this thread to "Off-Topic" if you must, but let it stay on the ma

  10. In-house Lions beat writer Tim Twentyman reports D'Andre Swift and Jared Goff are "building a nice rapport, especially on option routes." Per Twentyman, "Swift's ability to catch the football in space, put his foot in the ground, make one cut and then get to full speed in a couple steps stood out this week." We would hope Swift is looking good in padless practices, while we wouldn't expect someone employed by the team to report something negative. It is nevertheless important to remember the sky isn't falling in Swift-land after a spring's worth of panic over Jamaal Williams' role

  12. Worth a second look? His K:BB profile is impressive, and he's contributing steals and some HRs. If he moves up in the lineup he couid start scoring runs. He's been a clutch hitter-when I looked at it a week ago, Vlad Jr. was leading the AL in virtually every single statistic, and the only one I found him in 2nd was BA with RISP to Baddoo. His playing time has been a little sporadic, so he's been dropped in lots of leagues after the early season hype died out, but the Tigers seem to be committing to giving longer looks to the young guys in the lineup. I'm ready to take a shot in OBP league

  15. I hadn't heard of this guy until a few days ago after @PoundMyBeefpointed him out in the minors deep sleeper thread, but it didn't take long for me to get excited about him. I have a thing for pitchers with wipeout curveballs (see the Tejay Antone thread) and this guy has one of the prettiest ones I’ve seen in a while. Here's some video from a recent triple A outing: He made his major league debut today as the bulk guy behind an opener and unlike most of the rookies we've seen so far he dominated: Here's a little more info from Razzball from earlier tod

  16. Was basically all FA and CU, with the CH just mixed in, also threw a couple of sinkers and sliders. Nothing really appears all that plus, also the FA did not sit 95...it averaged 93, which is fine from the left side. The curve did look pretty good and fooled guys, has a nice swooping shape that gets far more vertical action then it does horizontally. He was impressive with his mechanics/delivery and the command can make up for a lack of 'wow' stuff...esp pitching behind a solid defense in that park. Was a shorter first glimpse, hoping to see more of the change and maybe slider, as th

  22. Diaz out 6-8 weeks will force the Stros to rest Brantley into the dh spot from time to time. (Tough to take his bat out of the line up entirely.) As a Stros fan, I did not expect him to get reps in left field... huge boost flexibility wise to fantasy managers that drafted him or picked him up.

  23. The stats agree with your untrained eye. His whiff rate and chase rate were pretty low his first two seasons, now they’re well above league average. Seems pretty lost to me. I guess the optimistic take would be his exit velocities are good, his sprint speed is excellent, and his plate discipline has never been this bad before. So still a pretty interesting player if/when he puts it together.

  39. And yet the trendline is where it is. Isn't that interesting? What? You mean I need to leave out the games THAT AREN'T THERE and don't affect the trendline so you.... what? Sorry, that's not how anything works. It's fine you try to nitpick me (I appreciate that) but this is not it. Anyway, it's also fairly irrelevant in the Terry McLaurin thread. The only reason we were discussing Fitz is that Fitz is certainly not a bad QB for a WR. Gunslinger, smart, not afraid to feed his top WR. Go Terry.

And he carved them up as he has everyone else this season.

"You get bailed out more frequently when you're pitchi
