  1. Seriously? That's the question he asked in his original post. Please, break it down, because I can clearly see the question in the first message in this thread. "...who could be this years Jaguars defense?" I also don't see anywhere that he claimed to be a source on anything. Are you arguing just for the sake of arguing, or can you point specfically to what you have a problem with?
  2. Probably just a bruise, so the ball should be fine in a day or two. That arm, however, is gonna be out of commission for awhile.
  3. I didn't see the comments you're referring to, but AAA being mentioned as a possibility doesn't surprise me. They have to say something, and "We think AA is the right place for him." would make them sound like idiots. They'd either have to admit that they're keeping him there for financial/control considerations or broach the possibility of keeping him in the minors at a more advanced level. As I've mentioned before, if they didn't plan to give him a spot in the majors they'd have moved him to AAA weeks ago. Of course, this is just speculation and it's always dangerous to predict what baseball
  4. Norris doing his best to make Holland look good.
  5. Well, last night's start didn't exactly inspire confidence. He had nothing and was hit often and hard. Of course, not having a spring training and then being injured for weeks leaves open the possibility that he just wasn't ready to pitch yet. Being under the care of the Mets medical and training staff always seems to make good pitchers bad and mediocre pitchers unplayable.
  6. It looks like the Yankees are being smart and methodical. Torres is only 21 and lost a year to injury, so I don't think this is about control. They took steps to make their infield pretty good without having to rush Torres back, and now they'll let that play out. Drury and Walker might be surprisingly good, but at the very least they'll probably hold their own. It makes sense to let Gleyber shake off the rust in AAA for 100 ABs and then look at his progress vs. what the veterans are doing. It's a long season and an even longer career, so the only people who should care about a spring, summer,
  7. It's way too early to have this discussion in the main forum, and so far it's just a bunch of guys offering speculative opinions based on things that may or may not be true once the 2018/2019 season actually starts. Once the current season is complete and a little time has passed for teams to make leadership changes and player moves, this discussion can continue. For now, you are welcome to ask for keeper advice and rankings in the Assistant Coach forum.
  8. I'm a bit surprised that no one has mentioned Gleyber Torres. Of course it'll depend on his recovery from TJ, Yankee off-season trades/acquisitions, and what he does in ST, but he has a chance to open the season as a starting infielder for one of the best offensive lineups in baseball.
  9. FYI, this post is fine and doesn't cross the line into Assistant Coach content. It's general, mentions a few generally available options, and gives some analysis. Where we run into trouble with posts like this are replies that veer off into extended discussions of Bortles vs. Taylor (Off-topic) or specific questions ("I want to add Flacco, should I drop X or Y"). As long as the discussion remains focused on Flacco and doesn't include anyone's team/league/roster decisions, it's fair game. Carry on...
  10. With the Headley move it sure looks like the Yankees are planning for him to be in the majors to start the season. Of course they could still re-sign Frazier, but with power abundant elsewhere on the team it makes more sense for them to concentrate on a player with contact skills and some speed. If Torres can impress during ST he can be their 3B right out of the gate in 2018.
  11. Tout (verb): An attempt to explain to others the merits of something. This is the touts thread. It's not the "help me set my lineup" thread, nor is it the "which player should I add" thread. Posts here should contain the name of a player who is available on most leagues FA list and, if necessary, a brief explanation of what makes that player attractive. There is no reason to debate the merits of a player here, since there are threads devoted to that. There is no reason to critique last weeks touts by citing this week's results, since most of the players mentioned here carry signifi
  12. Yes, it's now twice as likely that DJ plays this year. It went from a 0.000000001% chance to a 0.000000002% chance
