  1. He's thrown more change ups than sliders tonight too. If he has a third pitch, especially if it's equal to his second, then this is fully legit.
  2. So what if he did, is there service time requirements to celebrate a HR? Dude's earned it, we all know it could disappear quickly. Not directed at you specifically.
  3. Well that sucks, just immediately asked to be pulled after an apparent injury. Purely guessing here, but looked like a muscle of some sort but no idea if upper or lower body.
  4. Is Cueto back? Looking good again vs one of the top offenses in the league currently. As usual, lots of different pitches coming from lots of different deliveries.
  5. To be fair his avg is the cause of all of those numbers being low. A pathetic start for sure, but he's still taking walks and there's no way to have a good OBP with a .125 avg(same with OPS/SLG). It's so early that if he hits .500ish over his next four games, he's back at his usual avg and the other numbers follow suit. I'm hoping he just listened too much to the talk that he wasn't swinging enough, as his swing% on stuff outside the zone is almost double where he usually sits. My only real concern is @ST. STEVEN's comment about him struggling against velocity, but I'm betting on his elite eye
  6. If I knew how to meme, you'd be in trouble.
  7. I'm still not sure I believe my eyes but I think I saw a scrolling leader board that said he leads the league with 20 balls hit over 95mph. Is that possible less than two weeks in?
  8. If Greg Bird is the threat to his playing time, he's got some time to work out the kinks. Bird has played 173 games(including minors) in the last five years, and his time in the majors hasn't been great. The only real threat to his playing time is him playing poorly long enough for them to manipulate Vilade's service time, call him up, and then move Fuentes back to 1B. Even that requires Fuentes not losing his spot and Vilade forcing his way up.
  9. His lifetime track record isn't pretty either, in regards to striking out. His only "season" in his MLB career under 30% K's was his 41 game rookie year. If he can manage it, then there's peak J.Baez potential, but there's also AAA potential.
  10. If you wanted to try and create the absolute worst possible bench player you could, current Pujols might be it. Can't play any position other than 1B(even that is being generous), slow as Christmas, has been a below average hitter for almost half a decade, and makes 20M.
  11. 12 months ago who would've thought the Brewers would have two aces and scoring runs would be their biggest issue?
  12. Launch angle 2019- 6.5 2020- 4.6 2021- 20.5 GB/FB 2019- 1.50 2020- 1.96 2021- 0.71 Line drive%, ground ball%, flyball% all looking equally encouraging. If he stays anywhere remotely close to those numbers and stays healthy, an MVP season is happening.
  13. Most people saying this I would call ridiculous, but you're no slouch in your analysis. Something I'll be watching for sure now, was not aware of this. I'd think adjusting to high velo would be one of the easier things to do though, right? Less worrisome than say someone who flails away at breaking balls.
  14. Still thinking Wendelken slides in the back door in Oakland.
