  1. Public Service Announcement: Keep it civil, guys. Posts in question have been hidden. Carry on.
  2. Well Rudy Gay is now out for tonight too in addition to no LA, so ... if it was ever going to happen.
  3. Of course. Discuss his character all you want. Leave any politics out of it.
  4. PSA - nix the politics. Posts have been hidden. Further violations of the RW Code of Conduct will see further disciplinary action. Carry on.
  5. I see your 10 @kidtwentytwo. I'll take a stab ... 1. Pete Alonso hits over .275 with 40+ HRs and solidifies himself as a late first rounder in 2021. 2. One of the Newcomb, Wright, or King Felix finishes as a top-50 SP 3. Hunter Harvey has more than 25 saves. Andres Munoz gets 15+ himself after the trade deadline. 4. Danny Jansen has the breakout catcher year everyone expected last year - .270+ AVG with 20+ HRs. 5. David Price wins 15+ games with 175+ Ks. 6. So does Kenta Maeda for the Twins. 7. Ke'Bryan Hayes posts a 15/15 season. Pirates OFs combin
  6. Trevor Gott seems like a dark horse for the Giants closer. Blew three fastballs by Trout the other day. I’ll also add that Farhan Zaidi was in the booth during a spring training game the other day and said Watson was basically 7th/8th inning guy. Shaun Anderson is competing for a starting role, and with the injury to Beede, they’ve got to have someone eat innings in the rotation. IIRC, when Anderson pitcher out of the pen last year (with success), Gott was injured. Gott has looked incredible this spring, the GM mentio
  7. Can’t believe we’re three pages in and nobody mentioned the most unlikely perfect game in MLB history (outside of Dallas Braden’s perhaps): PHILIP HUMBER
  8. I don’t think he was drafted with the expectation he’d hit .220, especially since he’s not exactly known for his glove. Hit tools are incredibly hard to project. Maybe he turns into Gallo at C. Maybe he’s Tyler Flowers.
  9. We see things differently. Youth movement - fine. Semantics. And they absolutely held Acuña down for service time reasons. Without question.
  10. Perhaps I am missing your point. Please enlighten me. It sounds as if you're arguing the Marlins are bad for the game by not playing their best players. I, and others, have pointed out that they're proceeding with the best course for their franchise under the current system. So if it's bad for their fans, I'd hope their fans understand the system and trust the process. I don't disagree that the system isn't ideal and shouldn't be changed. But under the current system, I don't understand how what they're doing is bad for the game, which is what you're arguing. Which part of the g
  11. I think the outrage over a team doing what's best to build a consistent winner is misplaced, yes. And I don't see it as bad for the game. I'm quite happy Atlanta tore things down and rebuilt ... look where they are now. As a fan, I'd much rather my team do that than hang out in no man's land, never good enough to win, and never bad enough to get the elite prospects.
  12. No one in Houston is complaining these days. Same arguments were made about them. Washington did the same thing before that. It's the current CBA ...
  13. I don't disagree with this at all ... I think it's kind of the confluence of events: not on 40-man, didn't line up perfectly, Hernandez and Yammamoto have pitched well, etc.
  14. I think it's more likely we see Vaughn before Rutschman because of two things: 1) Competitive cycle of the Orioles (in the AL East) vs. White Sox (in a wide open AL Central) 2) Position - catchers almost always are slower to the bigs than any other positon Rutschman is widely considered to be a plus defender already, and the bat is comparable to Vaughn. If the Orioles are comfortable starting his service time clock, I think Rutschman could come up in mid-late 2020 and start to shape the culture of that team, improve all the pitchers, get his feet wet against MLB pitching
