  1. In Vlad’s case, he’s waddling out of the gates
  2. Trout also has elite speed and defense. Why does every hitting prospect have to be compared to Trout just because Trout’s first year wasn’t great. That’s really a poor excuse for explaining away a player’s struggles. Not to mention, this is the 2019 outlook thread, not the career outlook. Most of us care more about this season. But I guess I f we’re comparing rookie seasons to all time greats as some sort of reliable metric we should be expecting a horrible rookie season from Vlad as well? That doesn’t make me feel any better
  3. I’ll give it a lot more than 2 weeks. I have no choice.
  4. Yeah dude. You can’t just use the same excuse when a player...nvm.
  5. Yeah this is the typical response, but for what people (including experts) expected, that excuse isn’t gonna cut it.
  6. I haven’t seen a poorer excuse for a hitter this season than what I’ve witnessed from Vlad so far...maybe Laureano’s first week, but wow. Astounding.
  7. This is simply not acceptable, even in a small sample size. I don’t care what excuse people want to make. This should not be happening to player that was supposed to possess all the qualities (elite batting eye, swing, contact and barrel ability) that should lead to immediate success, as projected by nearly everyone. Just 2 weeks ago the genius on the RW podcast predicted 40 HRs THIS SEASON. Yeah, that’s definitely not happening.
  8. After today: 4.03 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 9.23 K/9, 4.33 K/BB Before today: Min 30 IP - 15th in FIP (3.01), 35th in xFIP (3.82), 36th in SwStr% (11.8) He should be owned in most leagues.
  9. I just came here to post exactly that ^ It's funny seeing this coming from the Rangers broadcast though haha
  10. Just broke .400 after going 2 for 2 with 2 doubles...somebody stop him.
  11. It’s a game day thread. He looks horrific this game. It’s not an overreaction, he’s swinging and missing at nearly every pitch.
  12. I’m calm. This is just what I’m seeing.
  13. Vlad looks horrific. So much swing and miss.
  14. Had a no hitter thru 3 with 5 Ks, had Vlad flailing around. After a long half inning came back and lost the zone, got hit hard, and left after 4.1 IP and 82 pitches. Before the game, there was talk of him being sent back down because of the upcoming off days the Angels have, (according to the Jays announcers)
  15. Canning fell apart quickly...went from lights out to everything hit hard
  16. He made Vlad look like a raw rookie
  17. http://jaysfromthecouch.com/2018/09/24/alejandro-kirk-examining-the-blue-jays-prospects-excellent-debut-season/ (September 24,2018) Off to a great start in 2019 with more improved BB and K rates...anything here? @fawkes_mulder @garlando @brockpapersizer
  18. He should be getting that AA very soon.
  19. It’s official, debuting Friday via Ben Wagner
  20. I’ve seen plenty of 94s from Sale today
  21. I will be shocked when he's not called up on the 23rd
