    I get that Trevor got designated for assignment, but for goodness sakes, what's his last name!?!

    Orioles Sign Carlos Perez to mil deal

    Print them.
  4. How in the world can the Toronto Blue Jay's CEO be one of three people on the RSDC panel? You can already cast why their vote will be. What is MLB thinking? I would say none of the panel members should be affiliated with MLB.

    MLB - Expansion and realignment

    The opposite. I am saying the purpose of the shift is so the player hits right in to it, nobody has to move. I am saying requiring two infielders between third and second base, two between second and first, and outfielders in their traditional zones would lead to needing more athletic players (OF range), more balls hit in to areas where the athletic players have to move, more exciting plays, and make speed/athleticism a more important trait.

    MLB - Expansion and realignment

    Get rid of shifts. The idea is to hit it to someone who doesn't have to move. Getting rid of shifts allows for athletic outfielders to make more exciting plays. Pitch Clock to speed up the game. I saw this weekend where tennis has a Serve Clock, need it. An Electronic Strikezone would be nice. Anything that can be done to reduce all or nothing batters would make the game more exciting. Anything that can be done to encourage more base stealing would make the game more exciting.

    The Inevitable national outlet Chris Davis article.

    Is there enough data on Mancini at 1B to determine if he is a better or worse defender than Davis?
  11. Like replay, hope for electronic strikezone soon. I would outlaw shifts, require two defenders between first and second and two between second and third.

    Baseball America: What the Scouts Want

    Well I was out of pocket for a few hours. Glad to see you all have been having fun. I meant in the context of scouting young players in the MiLB system for trades, etc., and international players in established leagues like Japan or KBO. But yes, for high schoolers I would certainly rely more on things like OBP and K's for a hitter, K's and BB's for a pitcher, etc., than the "eye test."

    Baseball America: What the Scouts Want

    IMO a lot of subjective junk in there. Scouts are obsolete, need advanced statistics and then the analytics to exploit them. Don't need to see the player, your eyes lie, numbers don't.

    Why is Caleb’s Joseph Playing?

    Forget either, not sure why Sisco wasn't given the whole year.

    Why we could be "good again" sooner than many expect

    I agree a quick retool WAS possible two years from now if they had kept Gausman and Schoop, still would have had Bundy, Cobb, Gausman in the rotation. But now, no way. I was all for trading Machado, Britton, and Brach, and wish there was a way to trade AJ and find a home for Trumbo, but was not in favor of trading Guasman and Schoop. Oh well.
