  1. So in typical Astro fashion, Aaron Sanchez makes his debut and puts up a 6IP 0H 0ER 2BB 6K line. It's almost unfair at this point.
  2. His days of hitting the upper 90s are gone. Too fragile, too many injuries and he's sit more lower to mid 90s these days. I very much doubt his arm could handle going back to back days.
  3. With Freeman at 1st and two nearly MLB ready OF prospects in baseball's top 30 prospects I can't imagine they'd want a long term option. As soon as 2020 they could be looking at an Acuna/Pache/Waters OF which would be pretty insane.
  4. That would make me vomit. Sogard's numbers hide that he's still a terrible hitter who has been tremendously lucky.
  5. You're not going to sniff either of Gavin Lux or Dustin May and probably not Keibert Ruiz or Will Smith but I could see someone like Tony Gonsolin/Jeter Downs/Josiah Gray leading a package.
  6. The kids in the minors badly need to form their own union. There should never be a case where people are represented by those who are working for other's best interest in not your own.
  7. I think you're kidding yourself if you think the handlers are just going to disappear. The kids still need some place to practice, access to gear, exposure to MLB scouts. The handlers can provide all of that.
  8. Yup the owners really needed more money and at the cost of the kids who almost definitely wont ever sniff even 1% of the owner's wealth. Anything and every to make sure the free market system doesn't exist in any form.
  9. That would be a haul and I honestly don't expect it to be that much. Allen by himself is a very nice piece top 100 guy(73 on most recent BA list) and MLB ready.
  10. Not really. Feldman had a 3.46ERA 3.93FIP 3.83xFIP when the Cubs traded him to the Orioles. Cashner has a 3.83ERA 4.25FIP 4.88xFIP.
  11. Frankly it's a really really bad idea as the hit rate on J2 talent is even worse than the rule 4 draft. When you're in talent acquisition phase you don't worry about where the talent comes from or what position they play.
  12. Definitely is. While I don't think he brings back a guy sniffing the top 100, he should at least bring back a somewhat intriguing guy.
  13. Moving prospects before you have an answer at that position in the majors is usually not a good idea. Just stock pile the heck out of the minors and if one of them comes up to MLB and then performs, then you consider dealing the depth.
  14. There's a pretty drastic difference in their peripherals. FIP: Means 3.93 Boyd 3.56 xFIP: Means 5.14 Boyd 3.33 SIERA Means 4.67 Boyd 3.17 K/9: Means 7.51 Boyd 11.94 BB/9 Means 2.40 Boyd 1.68 Boyd's peripherals make his performance look a lot more sustainable
  15. I think it's pretty silly to think that all of this sudden just now in 2019 did all these players collectively started taking PEDs. AAA is all the proof I need to know it's the ball.
