    It passed him in foul territory so it would have been a tough get. Must have gone over the front corner of the bag.

    2 run double. Looked foul to me.

    Live arm. Consistent 95 t98 on stadium gun. Very wild though

    What a laser! The Erie manager got tossed out of disbelief
  5. I take solace in the fact that the worst team in baseball has a much clearer path to title contention than maybe the 5th best team in the NBA.

    Manny Machado Appreciation Thread

    Regardless of the return having to trade Manny is a dark day for the franchise. He was a key part of the most fun 5 years I've ever had as a sports fan. I remember back in 2012 my friend said "I can't believe he's ours" because we just never got guys like that. The fact that he couldn't play in the 2014 ALCS is something that still weighs in the back of my mind. My best friend is an Indians fan so I've seen him go through this many times, but having to send a player like this off as he enters his prime is heartbreaking. I know contemplating the return is exciting but we'll be lucky if anyone coming back is a quarter of the player Manny is. Yeah at times he's been cocky and arrogant but he was just a kid and he was exciting and he was ours. Now he's not and it sucks. I'll always love Manny and will always root for him.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    I really appreciate your insight on these guys. I'd be excited about Medina but Gamboa seems like a real leap of faith. Our very own Luis Sardinas had 60 ratings at speed, arm, and field and was a top 10ish prospect for the Brewers/Rangers. He had similar questions about how well he'd hit but I guess he never put it together. I mean if we get Gamboa I'll be pulling for him but his great eye at the plate won't matter much in higher levels if pitchers don't have to worry about his bat.

    It doesn't seem like Gamboa hits much, at least so far.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    My buddy had an irrational love of Tony Batista. I think he'd be excited about us getting Franco.

    Machado Trade Expectations

    I haven't looked it up but the ones that spring to mind are Jesus Montero, Drew Henson, and D'Angelo Jimenez. They were all extremely hyped and turned into busts. I always thought the media helped the Yankees by inflating the worth of their prospects. Guys like Sheffield and Frazier were highly regarded before getting to the Yankees though.

    2018 MLB Draft Discussion

    So you're saying that if this is what we do with comp picks we better trade Manny?

    Well bullpen guys are more important than ever. If we could get a 2015 Betances at 1-11 I'd be good with it

    Is any team particularly good at developing high school starters? When I look at this list it seems like the vast majority are college guys.

    I could maybe seeing us do a rental of Frazier or Moustakas and moving Manny to SS.
  15. I remember Roger McDowell was always the star of those MTV Rock N Jock softball games back in the 90s. He really got the most out of the Awayboys back then.
