  1. The one complaint you could have had about him was his sb% in aaa, and then he goes out and swipes 4 sb in two games. I love this guy already.
  2. Nickname Suggestion: Cody Blue Balls - His team is blue - He hits balls far - He gives you blue balls when he's not in your line up (on another team or DL)
  3. 2-5 with a HR, 2B, and SB. Continues to amaze in aaa
  4. Dude is more injury prone than Sam Jackson's character in Unbreakable, yet takes a fastball straight to the throat like a champ... Stays in the game and goes to the hospital as a precaution after, everything checked out fine http://m.mlb.com/news/article/247947338/rich-hill-hit-in-throat-by-pitch-vs-padres/
  5. Current NL MVP Odds (from https://www.betonline.ag/sportsbook): Bryce Harper (WSH) -145 Kris Bryant (CHC) +10000 Corey Seager (LAD) +3300 Anthony Rizzo (CHC) +10000 Nolan Arenado (COL) +450 Paul Goldschmidt (ARI) +250 Justin Turner (LAD) +2500 Ryan Zimmerman (WSH) +20000 Daniel Murphy (WSH) +10000 Charlie Blackmon (COL) +3300 Joey Votto (CIN) +3300 Anthony Rendon (WSH) +2500 Cody Bellinger (LAD) +3300
  6. Of course, wasn't saying he ever will be or ever even sniff Pedro. Just cool to hear any comparison to him.
  7. Off topic but a couple months back Razzball did a podcast and Grey kept pronouncing his name in a robot voice, so now when I read his name I can't help but read it in that same robot voice. It's both a blessing and a curse.
  8. When I watched his start at AZ, I was very disappointed I didn't get any shares. Dude's stuff is nasty, announcers mentioned Pedro when talking about his stuff.
  9. I went ahead and made the add in my 12 team mixed, hoping to get lucky. My reasoning being he's currently sitting at 92 innings, and I would reasonably expect a cap of 150-160 IP (125 in 2015, 115 in 2016). I don't see them wasting another 40-50 innings in the minors when the Rays could use those innings to give them a shot at the playoffs. If I'm the Rays I'm playing to win, and he clearly makes them better. Wouldn't be surprised to see a DL stint or move to the bullpen from Odorizzi or Snell. Let Honeywell pitch and help you get to the playoffs, and maybe by that point Snell or Odorizzi has figured it back out, at which point Honeywell switches to the bullpen for the playoff run. Wishful thinking, I know. After all, it is the Rays...
  10. How about the BB/K improvement Mookie has shown so far? Last year he was at 0.61, this year 1.30. This is an elite rate for someone his age - filter by guys 25 and under over the last 25 years you're looking at names like Lofton, Ventura, Knoblauch, Pujols, Pedroia, etc. My point is, Mookie is a stud, and will be for a long time. I don't know, maybe in today's baseball of K's and HRs he's just undervalued by some.
