  1. Sarasota(ish) 3/21-3/24

    I think an important player to watch would be Cody Sedlock, is he fully healthy, has he gone back to his college delivery with the smooth arm circle, what's his velocity look like? Ryan McKenna's defense would be interesting to me as well, he looks like (in one home to first time) he's much faster this spring. I've also heard that he has a good arm. Last year I didn't see the good arm and he was kind of awkward in CF. Jomar Reyes of course, how he looks at 3B, he improved his agility and his body last year, is it enough to give him a shot to stick there? Is he starting to get to his plus or better raw power in-game? Lucas Long, is he working as a starter or as a reliever? Where is he velocity at and if starting, how do his secondaries look?
  2. What If Tillman Gets Hammered in Spring Training?

    It apparently touched 92-93, which is better. Command could have been terrible and still not issue any walks, his control was good, he could have been missing badly within the zone. A problem last year is that with his lowered arm slot, he was getting less spin on his fastball, making it less deceptive and easier to barrel. So it's possible he carries a good fastball this year and still has major problems with his FB getting hit around if he can't get the spin back.
  3. The 5th Starter Competition

    Buck said Harvey would get the AAA game, the 3/21 game, and then be optioned.
  4. The 5th Starter Competition

    I’ve been saying Cortes from the start, he’ll win it, because he’s left handed and because he’s the best in-house option. He’ll strikeout enough guys and limit walks. Balls in play will get hit hard, but as long as most stay in the park he’ll be ok.
  5. My 25-man roster prediction (as of 3/7/18)

    He's been a better hitter over the course of his career than Gentry, but a much worse fielder. Gentry used to be a plus or better OF who could play all three positions, he's more average now. Presley has been quite a bad OF. Baserunning is pretty close, Gentry used to be a good baserunner, not as much anymore, Gentry is a bit faster.
  6. Jomar Reyes 2018

    Jomar Reyes, who just turned 21, made his first major league spring training start today. He hit a home run and impressed Buck enough to garner this praise: “You watch him, if you’re a scout from another team, you come in here, you’re writing something down about him,” Showalter said. “The thing I liked the most today was his calmness defensively. He can really throw and he is really engaged in the defensive side. He is going to be fun to watch this year and see his progress. He is the type of guy that could really pop.” From Melewski's blog: http://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2018/03/wrapping-up-tillmans-outing-and-the-os-4-2-victory.html
  7. Jomar Reyes with a HR.
  8. What If Tillman Gets Hammered in Spring Training?

    It's 1 pitch for an AB that ends with a ball in play. 3 pitches for an AB that ends in a strikeout. 4 pitches for an AB that ends with a walk.
  9. What If Tillman Gets Hammered in Spring Training?

    That's not the actual pitch count.
  10. Not a particularly bold statement.
  11. PED Suspensions Coming

    It's ok, I'm not mad or anything, just confused and I just wanted to push back strongly against the idea that Manny (30-40 million in surplus value) is similar in value to Lynn (literally 0 in surplus value since he was just on the open market).
  12. PED Suspensions Coming

    You responded what are the chances the Twins make that deal. The chances the Twins would make that deal are 100%.
  13. Projected 2018 Minor League Depth Chart

    He hit better than league average after skipping a level. He's not overly young, I think he can handle it.
  14. PED Suspensions Coming

    I guarentee they'd trade Lance Lynn for Manny in a half of a heartbeat and laugh at the Orioles for the rest of eternity.
  15. Three batters, three line drives so far. That's good right?
