Its the weekend which means more cuts.   Its getting harder.   I have the roster at 47.   Here is my guess:

Bostick

Infante

Wilkerson

Scott

Kline

Ramirez

Lucas

What  do you think?

I think Scott gets more time too, but man he has got show something if wants to make the 25 man roster.  I love his arm, but hoping he develops and doesn't end up being this generation's Brad Pennington.

I think a catcher will go too. Wynns should be playing next week and they will want to get him into a few games, so possibly Susac or Perez will go.

Other than that...I think your list is fine. Scott may or may not go though.

I thought Scott would make the team. Results have been pretty poor though. 

I thought Kline might make the team. Been hit around a little, bit Ks and BBs have been great. 

For both, it’s only been like 4 innings. Hard to say anything based on that. How they actually look, both in games and in practice, is also important, and I haven’t seen either pitch. So who knows. 

The other guys seem reasonable.

I'm waiting for them to bring back Yaz.

He's been back several times since he was cut.

I thought of cutting  a catcher but couldn't figure out which one to cut. We will get more information on the 22nd when Sucre has an opt out.

Yeah, this one is tough.

Sisco is staying. I don't think they will cut Wynns before they give him a look again and decide if they will keep him or put him on IL. I think they like Sucre's defense a lot and will give him up to the last game since he missed time early.

Leaves Susac and Perez. If they want, they can release either and give them a chance to latch with another team since the minors will be a bit packed with Cervenka getting time and they aren't getting rid of Brockmeyer.

I just couldn't rule out that Susac or Perez  might win the backup job.  They are all pretty even to me except Wynns with the injury but I agree this in not the time to cut him.

Not at all sure there is anything to be gained by keeping Escobar beyond this weekend.

He has an opt out of the 21st.   I think they make the decision then.  That is my guess.  It gives them more time in case of injury or Martin or  Jackson.

He has Bleier and Fry ahead of him and he needs to work on his command and control.  I think he does that in the minors and gets called up later.  That is my guess,

    • Can you give us a reference about where the evidence is for how "very few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70s"?     Maybe my statistical search is not looking in the same place.     Yeah, the junk baller who won our last World Series game probably ever.    Just watch the video and honestly tell me you think this guy couldn't pitch today.     
    • So few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70's that I just find it unlikely from a statistical standpoint.  I'm not old enough to remember late 70's McGregor.  The guy I remember in the 80's was more of a junkballer.
    • At the same time, you cited 103 mph as the reason older generation hitters would not do well today.  Exaggeration goes both ways in making a point about which I too was trying to communicate...i.e.  I do believe that many 1980s era players could certainly play well and thrive in today's game.     And that some of the pitching skill sets today might even be more valuable in today's game than they were back then.   Even if the velocity is not the same.         I certainly accept that the game is played differently today, different after the steroid era, and that the athletes playing it perform those aspects of the game differently than their predecessors.   Still haven't found the speed gun ratings on Scott in high school, but I suspect they were pretty good....I might just ask him...   Scott McGregor, El Segundo (Calif.), 1972 Although a teammate of Hall of Famer George Brett (as a sophomore and junior), it was McGregor who garnered more headlines during his three-year career under El Segundo legendary coach John Stevenson. McGregor was a three-time All-CIF selection and was twice named Player of the Year. He was also a Rawlings All-American as a senior. He set section records (which still stand) for career wins (51), career shutouts (20), shutouts in a season (9), and consecutive no-hitters (2). He also set the section record for career strikeouts (which has since been broken) with 496. He was the No. 14 overall pick in 1972 draft by the Yankees, but he was eventually traded to Baltimore. 
    • He's the top, He's the Colosseum! He's the top, A cornerstone of the Te-am! -- Pole Courter, from the musical "Anything Counts"  
    • You asked about velocity right? I love how you keep mentioning inner circle HoF players.  No word on how Frank Torre would do.  By concentrating on the top .1% you are missing out on an important issue I tried to relay to you.  Your average hitter is a lot more dangerous.   
    • And I think that’s fair. I’m just saying that I think it’s quite possible he would get that bump in today’s game given the emphasis on K’s from a pitching standpoint and hitter’s aggression and willingness to strike out.  It’s definitely a different game though. 
    • Yeah, I am sure Frank Robinson and Hank Aaron would have been just terrified by Kevin Gausman and Tommy Hunter.....lol.
