  1. Get rid of NL and AL, make one league. No pitcher hitting. Unjuice balls a bit to compensate for league-wide DH. East and West like in the NBA. Done.
  2. 😩 And to think that a few years ago I was one of the people making this correction. How the mighty have fallen!
  3. GrayRod, Hall, Harvey, Kremer, Akin/Baumann/Sedlock/Zimmerman/Lowther....dare I say a new Calvary has arrived?! I'll get my hat.
  4. Clearly the right handed Chris Sale.
  5. I was being facetious, thought that was clear by liking your post 😁 Will say, I don't agree on promoting Hays, Díaz, Mountcastle already. Might as well get as much service time out of them as possible, we can wait on those three while we figure out what we've got in Stewart, Mullins, and Santander. Do agree that Smith we can feel pretty comfortable discarding as a future piece, that is I wouldn't even disagree if you were lobbying for him to get the boot.
  6. He's got a lot of RBIs though.
  7. What's the tweet about Sedlock's elbow issue? I didn't see it. Agreed that Lowther is a special case but until he's dominating AAA hitters or at the majors and succeeding I can't help but see Garrett Olson, whose deceptiveness or great fastball movement (forget if it was one or both) was supposed to make up for his lack of velocity.
  8. Time to start taking him seriously as a prospect? If he's at 92-94, hitting 95-95 occasionally as reported, with good mound presence/pitchability and decent deception, should people like Lowther really be ahead of him? He's putting up similar/slightly better numbers than Akin did at Bowie at 23, at age 24, doesn't that put him somewhere in the 8-15 spot on our prospect list? Experts like Luke, who would you take, Sedlock or Zimmerman if you had the choice?
  9. Trying not to overreact on the last few months. Harvey still has a great arm which is the important thing, I'm confident he'll find his way sooner rather than later results wise IF (massive if, which is why he's 7th and not 4th or even higher) he can stay healthy. I think it's too soon to be dropping him much on prospect lists. Same with Díaz, no need to overreact on the last few months. Still like his median outcome better than the one for Mountcastle which probably looks something like Trumbo (I said median outcome, before people get on me). I know some people think Mountcastle has a special bat but in general I just don't like his profile, as someone said already in this thread. I don't like low OBP hitters in general and I certainly don't like low OBP 1B. On bat alone does Mountcastle project any better than Adam Jones or Francouer when they were top prospects? I'm not sure, and Adam Jones at 1B certainly isn't a valuable piece. Just my very un-expert opinion, trying to balance everything I've read.
  10. 1. Adley 2. Hall 3. Grayson 4. Hays 5. Díaz 6. Mountcastle 7. Harvey 8. Kremer 9. Baumann 10. Akin

    Not defending DD, far from it, but c'mon man, talk about a hot take off of one start by a young pitcher in Bowie who is coming off an injury. 😂

    Erbe was definitely a strike out machine before his injury. 133 Ks in 114.2 IP in Delmarva at age 18, 111 Ks in 119.1 at age 19 at Frederick, 151 Ks in 150 IP in Frederick at age 20. Was a big fan of that kid, gotta defend his rep. ✊

    To be fair, I'm not sure the argument is really about actual value as so much as it is about how much value we could've gotten. Schoop is a good player who had a terrible time of it in a short sample in Milwaukee who is, not so surprisingly, performing close to career levels this season (1.0 WAR so far). I really don't think it's unfair at all to criticize the trade. Perhaps from both sides.
