    Trey Mancini is going to trend up

    ....and not have Manny lead the team in HR despite leaving in mid-July
  2. 2. I also like AJ in RF. He looks pretty comfortable there and certainly much better than some of the DHs we've trotted out there the last few years. 4. Infielders are taught growing up to learn to throw from many different arm angles because there isn't always time to set and throw over the top. When charging slow rollers or bunts they are encouraged to come from down low and on double plays they are encouraged to use an arm angle most natural from where the ball is received. I think on routine ground balls most infielders go with what is most comfortable 5. Maybe the dugout is livelier because Trumbo isn't playing? We could bring pies back!

    Is there a roster move coming today? (8/31 Edition)

    I assumed this referred to potentially controllable players that teams were attempting to pass through revocable waivers as trade bait

    Josh Rogers 2018

    I expect to see his curveball become much better than what we saw last night. I think its a good to plus pitch for him. He seemed to be losing it high and arm side quite a bit last night. In his presser after the game, Buck mentioned some struggles with the different baseball used in MLB versus MiLB. He implied that there were some struggles there with getting the feel on his off speed stuff. Buck went on to mention how ridiculous it is that they use different balls and says he thinks it will get addressed this offseason. I spoke to a college pitcher that pitched in the CAA and he was telling me how much different the ball was when they played in a game at an ACC stadium (using the ACC ball vs the CAA ball). He kept a ball to show me the difference in the seams and it was unbelievable. The ACC ball seems were considerably more raised. He said his off speed stuff all had considerably more movement but it took him his whole bullpen plus part of the game to get comfortable with trying to control the pitches much less hit spots with them.

    Trey Mancini is going to trend up

    This is an interesting scouting report and shows how things ebb and flow with making adjustments. When Mancini first came up, the thing that impressed me was how fast his hands were and his ability to turn on that inside fastball. Funny how that is now the book to get him out.

    August Trade Stock Watch

    I haven't seen every game since he's moved but I've seen a few. He looks pretty good out there to me, but compared to some of what we've become accustomed to seeing in the corner outfield the last few years he looks outstanding

    Buck and TTP

    It seems to me that there is finger pointing now for a problem that happened years ago. This is a development issue. A guy shouldn't be hitting the majors where he can either have a reasonable TTP or execute a pitch. This is the type of thing that should be getting worked out in the lower minors. It's a problem to have a guy in the game north of 1.5 in TTP, much less late in a close game. You don't have to be quick to the plate with every pitch. It's probably fine to be slower to the plate when you are throwing a change-up anyway. You have to have be able to keep them honest by having a good portion of your arsenal that you can get there quick or effectively throw off a slide step. That way the runners are at least having to roll the dice.
