  1. I have to think he, like EVERY pitcher was using at least the rosin/sunscreen combo. But possibly. Hard to think there’s anyone who didn’t use something.
  2. More injury fallout from previously allowing pitchers to use sticky substance and instantly going to nothing at all? Having to grip the ball harder makes sense for tendinitis in the wrist/forearm area. Interestingly Wells spin rate has gone UP since the ban. He sits 2400-2600 regularly
  3. Now this is a fair assessment. Unlike sportsguy. But my prediction stands. We will see what transpires. But if either of those end up being all people hope for, and Wells is the 4th or 5th stud on the Orioles, then everyone should be blowing Elias
  4. So guys that haven’t pitched to any lineups in the majors whatsoever, are in your opinion, in FRONT of him because HE hasn’t pitched to enough lineups in the majors for you? Got it. By the way, Wells had much better numbers in the minors than Bradish. GRod is great. And he very well may be that great in the majors. But there’s a chance he won’t be either. Wells has a career 2.82 ERA, with a 1.06 whip in the minors and a 10.1k/9 with 255 innings. (also better than Hall’s numbers) Not to mention, Tyler Wells has literally gotten better with every level he’s gone up. GRod is your only potentiall
  5. I’ve said this in other forums in April and you can screen cap this one. Mark these words: “Tyler Wells, if healthy, will end up being the ace of this staff.” Admittedly that was before Meansie came out like a Cy Young rocketship, but I’m still gonna stick with the prediction. With a caveat that he could be the second best. *prepares for incoming scoffs etc
  6. I seem to recall you shiitting on Wells quite often in the beginning
  7. Hyde said he was emergency only. I suspect because he WANTED to start him today.
  8. Now that is a valid point for which I have zero explanation. LOL
  9. Though the two have nothing to do with each other, Wells has been better. Significantly so. There’s only so many spots to hide guys, and Twins were very high on Wells, but coming off TWO SEASONS without pitching because of TJ and covid bs, they assumed he was less likely to be taken. They are regretting it now big time. But that’s baseball. And that’s why the Rule 5 exists, so you can’t have 10 other hidden major league guys in addition to your 40 man. Pop has a 5.67 ERA and a 1.30 whip, so it’s not like we lost Jacob deGrom.
  10. Sorry, last quote was the wrong guy... Wells and Zim have not been anywhere close to brutal. Wells leads all rookie relievers in baseball in strikeouts. He is in the top 20% of the entire league in k% bb% whiff rate, chase rate, and spin rate. And if Santander had had two good ankles, would have an era in the low 3s.
  11. Baumann isn’t ready. You are correct.
