Breaking: Dylan Bundy Starts On Sunday 7/17 In Tampa Bay

Recommended Posts

Why do some measure wear on a pitcher's arm by pitch count and some by innings? That could be a huge difference.

You can't measure wear. Only proximity to failure. Bundy's arm has failed twice. He needed a new ligament, and his cutter caused his shoulder to turn to stone. He is someone you probably should be careful with or use what you can get out of.

Teheran? Gray?

I would personally trade whatever it took to land Teheran. Gray would depend on which positions we are losing players at.

Because you could trade him for someone that could pitch twice the innings over the rest of the season.

Of course that is a high price to pay for 40 innings.

This. Of Bundy shows to be a good starter great, but he's not going to be a long term fixture in rotation this year unless the innings limit is a lot higher than we think, even at 4-5 innings a start.

They'll take it pitch-by-pitch, batter-by-batter, inning-by-inning, game-by-game, and day-by-day. Let's not act like the training wheels aren't still on.

His last outing was 2.1 innings and 7 Ks

How can you call that far from dominant?

I do hope he has a good game.

If we offered our top 5 prospects, Atl might turn that down.

Agreed we would have to add Schoop or better to be the center piece plus top prospects.

I doubt Pomeranz has anything to do with the decision. It will be interesting to see what Buck says in the pre-game presser about what the plan is with Bundy, though knowing him he'll be a bit coy about it.

Buck said Bundy would be starting soon a few weeks back, which surprised me. I quoted him in a thread when it happened. Still dont think he sees 90-100 pitches year. I have doubts that would go well.

But I mean, why do some measure by pitch count and some by innings?

I'm guessing MW catches that game with Joseph catching Saturday. Buck will give him MW. Also I'd expect Hart to be sent down for Miranda or another long guy before the game.

Let's go Bundy. Bundy has like a 1.00 ERA in his last 17 IP. I'd say that's dominant.

We can win a championship without Teheran or Gray. Overpriced and not needed.

So, typical DD?

If Tillman slips back to his career averages we don't stand a chance. I am not sure what is going on with Gausman. I truly thought he would be the horse this year. Say he gets slightly better returns. Yovani also slightly better we still don't have what it takes to win a series against top notch pitching. I think our bullpen is going to regress if they are continually used the way they have been. We need a true 1 or 2 to relieve some of the pressure from the rest of the staff.

This is the only way you can build up his innings reliably and on a consistent schedule. Go for it.

Lining him up to pitch behind Gallardo is a good way to make sure he's pitching at least three innings every five days. ;)

    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.    
    • Nice to hear the tidbits on Baumler from the Instructional League.  I know folks are going to point out the nature of what is reported is overwhelmingly positive, and they are right, of course.  Still, this last draft was performed with heavy analytics and without in person or in competition video for the spring 2020 season in college and HS baseball and without in-person workouts.  IMO, the positive comments are an early vindication of our draft strategy and the two HS prospects we invested big $ in with the expectation that they were essentially second or third round talents.  The early word from various quotes from Matt Blood is that Mayo and Baumler are who we thought/hoped they were or better. 
    • I don't see him getting picked.  Do we have the space on the 40 man for him?
