  1. The organization is probably just praying he does something stupid off the field that allows them to void his contract. Only real hope.
  2. I know you mean this sarcastically, but honestly that is a more significant development re: his chances of becoming a valuable major leaguer. Almost rather see him walk in 3 out of 4 games than homer in 3 out of 4 at this point. We know he's got plenty of power.
  3. That’s sad to me. I’d still like to see him given a chance as a starter if his arm holds up for a season or two. But yeah, it looks pretty definitive his move to the pen.
  4. Does this mean we're officially giving up on him as a starter? ☹️

    How much is his velocity down on average this season? Heard Luke mention too his FB not being the same as last season’s...

    WHIP is a little high but that 3:1 K:BB ratio is pretty nice.
  7. Loved listening to Wells and Lowther earlier! Really liked Wells for the humble way he put up with Hunter and Bordick's typical knuckleheadry (did Bordick really think it was funny to do that lame impression of an Australian accent? Such cringe), and Lowther for his attitude re: analytics and his general intelligence. Wells was really nervous but seems like a great kid. On another note, bout time we got off of that winning stuff. Back to losing, that's what I like to see. Can't have Detroit beating us out.

    No doubt. Now that he's finally healthy and got some continuity I was hoping he'd start pulling up trees, but that hasn't been the case. But I agree, it's a very small sample size. I guess I'm wondering if it's fair to start worrying if the next 129 PA produce similar results?

    Starting to get a bit worried he's not the prospect we thought he was going into 2018 when BA ranked him #21. Injuries and all that but since then he's had 288 PA at Bowie at age 22-23 to the tune of a .706 OPS and now 129 PA at Norfolk with the major league juiced ball at age 23-24 to the tune of a .774 OPS. Luke/Tony and other talent evaluators, what are you hearing? Am I right to be worried?
  10. Would be pretty ridiculous if Stewart doesn't get his chance now...
  11. Of course there is. Even with last night's effort he's at -0.6 WAR for the season...
  12. No doubt. But this day and age and with this regime someone no doubt is in his ear about the metrics that matter. And the way the odds are stacked against a player with his K/BB and lack of defensive value. I mean even if he were producing this exact same output at MLB we're talking minimal value. He'd have to have a .900 OPS and 115-120 wRC+ for him to be offering anything but negligible value in this offensive climate. I'd assume those in charge of his development are at least letting him begin to think about these sorts of things.
  13. Interesting re: Gillispie, didn't realize at all he was a potential prospect much less the most worth watching currently of those three!
  14. DJ Stewart up Dwight Smith Jr. I don't care where. That's the only move I really want to see/care about.
  15. That's nice but in the stats that matter he's got a .850 OPS, very good but not amazing for a player without a position, and a 106 wRC+ (coming into yesterday...probably at something like 108-110 after yesterday).
