  1. Is the book closed on him being a C?
  2. Even if he can't, at least he can devote all his batting practice time to hitting righthanded and not have to spend a certain percentage of the time on something that will ultimately be fruitless.
  3. So Mark Viviano was on 105.7 this morning and said he was at the game, and he said that Chris Davis lollygagged to first on a fly ball that was dropped and as a result was extremely lucky to get to second base.
  4. Wow. The last time I remember that type of arrangement was the Washington Diplomats NASL soccer team in the late 70s. They had a young announcer by the name of Jon Miller doing radio play by play and it was also the commentary for the games that were televised.
  5. https://www.baltimoresun.com/obituaries/bs-md-ob-vi-ripken-20210228-rh6bu2chhffqpkagvivmtyorna-story.html
  6. Jorge Lopez will start, per Hyde today. Aaron Nola for Philly.
  7. And it's easier to beat out a bunt hit from the left side of the plate.
  8. Hyde said today that Cedric will only be batting left-handed this spring.
  9. Place latest info on player health during spring training in this thread. Alexander Wells has a sore oblique and will be pushed back in camp. Same thing happened last February. Per Roch.
  10. Tomorrow's game vs the Phillies will be rebroadcast on MLB Network at 2am Tuesday morning.
  11. Boston had a losing record 3 of the 4 years from 2012 to 2015. The idea that they were a powerhouse team that had one bad year is wrong. The outlier year in that 4 year stretch was their championship in 2013. And I don't think they are all that great this year. And I think that the starting rotations in New York and Tampa have significant question marks. If we had a good team, I would look around the division and say no one really scares me at all. Toronto, NYY, and Tampa will all be good but I don't see them as being in the class of the Dodgers or Padres or A's, and not head and shoulders above a bunch of other teams in MLB (Atlanta, Minnesota, St Louis, White Sox, etc). The AL East is not some monster division. It's a good division but the constant talk of how dominant it is needs to be toned down. It DOES have two (maybe 3 with Toronto?) teams that can outspend everyone else, so it will always be somewhat tough. But it's not the beast that conventional wisdom seems to make it out to be.
  12. I don't know Frobby. I am guessing the performance of the NRIs is irrelevant. I think they have a plan for Lowther, Wells, and Baumann. I dont know exacrly what it is, and wouldn't be surprised if it was more conservative than a lot of us want. But I don't think it will be changed by what the NRIs do in the spring. If The Plan is for any of the 3 guys to be here at the start or early in the season, they will be here. If, more likely, The Plan is to slow play them, then I think they will be slow played. And if all the MRI possibilities look awful, we'll either pick up someone on waivers or just go with the slightly less awful of the NRIs and suffer. I don't think the development of Zac Lowther will be affected in any way by whether Felix Hernandez has totally lost it or if he still has something left
  13. Caleb Joseph -- signs a deal with the Mets that actually puts him on the 40 man roster. Still making a living at baseball at 34. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/02/mets-sign-caleb-joseph.html
  14. Tommy Milone -- minor league deal with the Blue Jays. Last year's opening day starter is now with the enemy. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/02/blue-jays-tommy-milone-agree-to-minors-deal.html
