    Luis Perez

    Struck out 10 in the home finale for Delmarva. Only 2 hits. Guess with the hit batters he was "effectively wild". @Luke-OH, I know he's a bit old for the league, but are you seeing any development in his pitches or effectiveness? Luis Perez pitched 6.0 innings and gave up a run on 2 hits with a walk, 2 wild pitches, 3 hit batters and 10 strikeouts.

    Jonathan Villar- Our new 2B?

    Be better to track it since the day of the trade. IMHO.

    How we feeling?

    Two guys that many have written off that could change our near-term prospects quickly.

    New prospect list?

    Whoa. Cumberland--is that at #4????? How do they justify that?

    New prospect list?

    Thanks. So our depth is comparable, but we're missing some of the impact players. I'd say a great start to the rebuild.

    Yeah, but now the link is updated to say he's owed what's left of 5.9 mil and is a free agent next year. Oh well.

    New prospect list?

    Question for people who know better, like @Luke-OH: How could Encarnacion be #15 (according to MLB Pipline) in Atlanta's stacked system, and come over here and only bump to #14? What are we missing about this kid? Surely our system isn't now as good as Atlanta's was pre-deadline. Help me understand, please. Thanks.

    Logan Schafer signed to minor league deal

    This makes it pretty clear we're going to sign Boone Logan, rounding out our Logan trifecta.

    Pirates shopping McCutchen

    Bump. The shopping is heating up: http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2016/11/andrew-mccutchen-trade-rumors.html Would love to add Andrew Mc. What is a realistic offer from the O's?

    @ Athletics 8/8

    I hear ya, Roy. But the A's have taken about 4-5 hits away and another 2 hit into the shift that would've been hits.

    RHP Odrisamer Despaigne

    Hey, I know bumping old threads is your thing. I don't like it. It makes the front page of threads seem old and tired. To each his own.

    RHP Odrisamer Despaigne

    Respectfully done, Frobby, and I agree. The board is far too full of zombie threads in general, in my opinion. At minimum, the minor league goings on should be moved. There was a time when all the threads on the ol' OH were original thinking, insights and stat crunching. Now it's littered with all old rehashed threads (do we have to see the NY/NJ/CT fans thread from 7 years ago every time we play the Yanks?)

    Jeff Beliveau

    He was hurt earlier in the year. Buck talked up his return back in spring training. At one point, Buck made it seem like he was a real option for the big league club.
  15. Of course. But there's a pretty successful/influential ex-player GM named Billy Beane who made a case for mental toughness being an overlooked key ingredient (he didn't have it, despite the talent and Dykstra did, despite having less pure physical tools.)
