  1. I also think it's the first 5 you listed. Would you deal Luzardo for Kelenic in a Keeper Points?
  2. Moncada: "I want to steal more bases," he said. “That’s an area I want to improve." Moncada had 10 stolen bases last season. It’s just one area he’s focused on in taking a next step. “Just get better overall in my game,” he said. “With what I did last year, it was a good step forward, and this year I’m hoping to just keep going forward with my game.” https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/white-sox/ct-chicago-white-sox-yoan-moncada-20200215-qkrxciwwczdrrodz56db7piagu-story.html
  3. I can't help but wonder if his stats were effected by potentially having stolen pitcher/catcher signs. The Astros claimed to stop recording in 2019...but can you really believe that? Before someone jumps down my throat...I'm not taking anything away from Yordan and his talent. Just bringing up the question.
  4. In his last 9 starts he's allowed more than 3 hits twice! Gone 7 IP in five of them...and had 70 strikeouts in those 56 innings. Possessed right now.
  5. Not to be rude, but everyone who frequents the Mize thread is well aware of all of this. He's recovering from shoulder inflammation. I'm sure I'm not alone when I ask: Can we not bump this thread with random thoughts about the kid? Lets keep it to updates on his recovery.
  6. Judging by Melvins comments recently I doubt it it. He touched on not only the goal of having Luzardo reach 100 pitches in an outing, but also the need to pitch well for a stretch. Can't see him expediting that because of a suspension to someone else. Luzardo certainly deserves being called up. Lets hope Melvin just says "screw it"....
  7. The PERFECT GIF for this lol. It's amazing Boone's done what he has with all the injuries....he comes across as an absolute amateur.
  8. Regardless of Martinez, Reyes will be getting a rotation spot when Moleziak thinks he's ready. Getting Reyes back on track is of PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE for this organization. Reyes isn't being jerked around anymore. He's getting a couple starts where they have a DH, then he's moving up to (likely) Memphis, where everyone and their mother is praying he continues to progress after a few starts. There is no player who stands in front of Alex Reyes when he is deemed ready. Can we all just get on that page already? This stuff is blatantly obvious.
  9. Maybe I should clarify...Instead of "pay site" I should have said "newspaper site"(maybe the SF Chronicle?). All articles are generally locked behind a paywall. That's normal.
  10. I found the report, but it's a pay-site. Could only read a paragraph. I Tweeted to her asking for more information about her August/September projection, and she never responded.

  12. Seeing Luzardo's name at the top of the page... ....*sighs*....but anyways...man, what a snails pace recovery. Makes me worry about him long term. My patience has been challenged greatly...
  13. Actually, I've read the blurbs. Not only that, I go out of my way to find articles on Reyes. I don't rely on blurbs. I'm just telling you what it looks like to me. You don't send your top SP prospect back down to the minors to work 40-50 pitches in long relief, to call him back up as a long man eventually. He's been on a RP workload all Spring basically...they weren't gonna send him to Memphis on a 75 pitch limit. He has to work up to that point. That's why you see the manager reference 40-50. The manager of course isn't gonna divulge to the media that his goal is to get his shiny prospect pitcher back up to a starters workload. He wants to project a low pressure situation. The goal is to get this kid back as an elite starter. Period.
  14. Listen, I get it. I've seen the quotes on their approach going forward. But I'm reading between the lines and using basic logic. How smart would it be to continue going back and forth with him being a SP or an RP? I get it, they're using him as a limited pitch SP and using his bullpen days to work on his issues. Reading between the lines: "We're gonna try and get him on a starters routine and get him back on track. We're not messing with him in the bullpen in the Majors again, we saw what that did in the past". You expect me to believe that there's any shred of a chance that they call Reyes up as a RP after he's been on a limited SP routine? No way.
  15. There's no chance in hell they bring him back as a reliever after stretching him out. They tried that, and it failed miserably. Can't just keep toying with the kid. He's a starter now. I don't see them messing with him anymore.
  16. I don't know about lights out...Still walking his fair share and his command hasn't been great.
  17. I’m not so sure asking your MVP of the past 2 years (while trying to sign him) to move positions to make room for a prospect is a likely scenario. Defiantly not “easy”.
  18. Any report on velocity? Edit: Just saw the RW blurb on him; FB Sat in the high 80's and topped out at 90 a couple times. Lets hope he can raise that a couple ticks at some point in the season.
  19. Hard to put much stock into your lofty comparison when you admittedly don't even watch the kid play... Many people in this thread have followed him for multiple years now and are well aware of his perceived ceiling. But thank god someone that watched his highlights loves him!
  20. He may have a few weeks on him, but I'm taking Eloy 10 times out of 10 over Robles. First couple weeks of the season will be a DISTANT MEMORY when Eloy is giving you AVG and power for your playoff run.
