    I can't figure out why he's not in left every day at Norfolk. Doesn't that position make the most sense with Mancini around, not to mention Nunez and Davis...

    Yeah, interesting to note he hasn't been in the OF since July 7th.

    Did you see Scott in the futures game a year or two ago?  (not sharpshooting you just trying to get a frame of reference)

     

    Not a Future's Game though - above is from the AZ League AS Game.

    What did the stadium gun have McLarty at?

    Dunno specifically, but no one from either side broke 88. Which I suppose is telling. 


  4. Guessing the stadium gun is slow? He had one pitch at 88 on Friday, nothing else above 87. Looked good though, looks like a grown man out there.

    Change of subject: but how favorably does Hall comp to Trea Turner?  Is he that projectable?

    Tough to say. Turner was in his first year at NC State at age 20, Hall is at Delmarva. Unlike Turner, Hall hasn't shown much power - but he's still growing up.


  6. The last thing this team needs is to put stats and individual milestones ahead of the team and organization.

    Hess pitched 2 innings 3 days ago. If he gets hurt, what do they do? I mean their 5th “starter” is a 2 inning reliever as it is already. They can’t afford to lose Hess.

    In fairness, the situation is a little different.    At the start of last year, Davis was coming off a disappointing season.    Not so disappointing that you bench him in game 2.    He sat for the first time in Game 10 after going .100/.250/.200 in the first 9 games.   This year he’s coming off arguably the worst season anyone ever had.   And he was even more pathetic against lefties than his overall numbers (.144/.212/.280).   

    Not only all of this ^^^ - but Davis was also batting LEADOFF.

  8. We make a day of it on the weekend, so no traffic. There is a nice Main Street area, with shops and restaurants. Highly recommend Pretzels and Pizza Creations on Main Street - we would make the trip just for them! It's also easy to time a promo/fireworks night night on the weekend - so lots of bang for the buck.


  9. Ravens fans don't seem to be scurred - and that stadium is in a much sketchier area.

    * Don't cite me last year's numbers, that was all about the team and the kneeling.

    Concerts sell out, Monster Jam sells out, Disney on Ice...hell, the Blast were drawing 5,000 fans before they moved. I think attendance is more about economics, and prioritizing discretionary spending towards more entertaining outcomes...

    Edit - should have went with "what he said!" ^^^

  10. If I were Cuban, Miami sure seems like the most appealing option among who has a shot. Plus no state taxes. 

    For a young player who seems to be very into young things, Miami also sure has us beat on things like nightlife and pretty girls. (No offense, but an Baltimore 8 is like a Miami 4.)

    I agree with those that are saying money talks though. I can’t imagine a defector turning down the highest offer.
