  1. Well certainly not all refining needs to be done at the minor league level. Very few players are fully cooked when they arrive - eventually you need to take your lumps at the big league level. That being said, there's not much evidence that Akin has nothing left to learn at the AAA level. He wasn't dominant there last year, juiced ball notwithstanding. But I do hope we see him up here sooner rather than later. Like I said, eventually you need to cut your teeth in the majors.
  2. Teams have been imagining such "super rotations" as long as farm systems have existed. Rarely do they pan out (actually I'd say never do they pan out as hoped, but never is a strong word). And to say that if they don't get Rocker the whole thing was for naught is just silly. They got a very good prospect in last year's draft, they'll get a good one in this year's draft and almost certainly a good one in next year's draft as well. Let's ease up on the hyperbole a bit.
  3. This is a bad comparison, and Moose hasn't said any of those things. He never said a woman COULDN'T do the job. Just that it was his preference to hear a male doing the job. And that's a perfectly valid preference, but I would imagine that Moose would also agree that women should have a right to pursue those jobs if she's qualified (don't want to put words in your mouth though Moose.) Regarding black QBs/black coaches, that wasn't a matter of preference. There were people who legitimately thought that blacks didn't have the intelligence/fortitude/whatever to handle the position. That was indeed racist and far more nefarious than what Moose is describing. Anyway - in before the luck lol. Good luck to all the "new" faces!
  4. How un-woke of you Moose! For the record I agree with you - it's one of those odd things where I think absolutely, there's no reason a female shouldn't be able to do that job, they can be just as knowledgeable and engaging as men. And yet my personal preference would be for a male to be in the role. Perhaps over time that will change.
  5. The only thing that really interests me is the young pitchers. Would like to here how they're looking, any added (or lost) velo/movement/new pitches/etc. The young pitchers are the most interesting (and important IMO) part of the system right now.
  6. Sure, I agree with all that, but Sisco's never going to be an excellent defensive catcher. His calling card is going to be his hitting. Honestly if I were him that's where I'd put most of my efforts and focus, and it sounds like that's what he's done.
  7. If he can't hit - and so far in the big leagues he can't - then any glove problems don't really matter. I haven't fully given up on him but he has a lot to prove.
  8. Not really a ST question but wasn't sure where else to ask it - is AAA going to use the same ball as MLB again?
  9. But I agree with regards to Harvey. He's stated that that's what he likes better anyway.
  10. Don't bury the lede - Hyde says there's a different feel to Spring Training this year!
  11. It would be funny maybe like the first 1 or 2 times. But it would happen so frequently that it would lose its luster. A baseball playoff series is essentially a coin toss.
  12. Agreed - I'd say the current format is about perfect actually. I love the 1-game wildcard, it was about the only good thing Bud Selig did.
  13. It's too early for these sorts of threads and I don't really have anything noteworthy to add. I just loathe the nickname "GrayRod" and wanted to make sure I didn't have to see it all year like I did for his thread last year. Here's to hoping for a good (and healthy) year in Frederick.
  14. It's an easy no for me. If you had to cheat to win then you didn't really win. Agreed that there are "levels" of cheating and that up to a point its fair game but too tough to draw where that point is.
