    They All Break

    Jesus Luzard, A's top prospect shut down for 6-8 weeks with a shoulder injury. A little late, but I had drafted this guy in my fantasy league the day before this news broke. He had been lights out all spring and was a top 30 prospect. https://www.sfchronicle.com/athletics/article/A-s-top-prospect-Jesus-Luzardo-shut-down-with-13705103.php

    Wow, yea, not sure how he hit that ball out last night. I'm also cautiously very excited about Hays. Those were impact, game changing swings last night against pitchers pitches. Until he gets a full season under his belt though I'll still have concerns about the ankle. Because, you know, I'm paranoid. And he did look like he was still heel striking when sprinting to make that diving catch last week.

    So a stress injury. Sounds extremely painful. Thanks for finding this description!

    Just read this article on Hays, not sure if it's been posted anywhere else: https://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/bs-sp-orioles-austin-hays-running-20190305-story.html It talks about how he had gained about 15 lbs last winter and came into ST heavier than he'd ever been and that, combined with a bio-mechanically inefficient gait (heel striking when running,) contributed to his ankle injury. Does anyone know what the exact injury was? It isn't mentioned in the article...
  5. Definitely refreshing that he seems to value a degree of transparency. It makes the fans feel more valued I think.

    Adell (who's a complete stud) is out for the next two months. Hate to hear it.
  7. Yup, not this year at least. Still hoping we can sign at least one guy from the Mexican league
  8. 3 run double today it looks like
  9. Bump. He's hitting .500 right now.

    Manny signs with Padres

    Myissue is that he didn't acknowledge that the fans treated him with love. Because we did. The front office didn't show him the love (read:money) he desired and that's pure fact, so I don't have any issue there either. But to not say anything about the fans and the community, other than what he did for said community, leaves a bit of a sour taste in my mouth, tbh. And that's a shame. I'll always be a fan because he has my heart now, but it's clearly a one-sided relationship.
  11. Honestly can't tell if this post is satire or not. If so, its good. My favorite line is in bold.
