Since we've gone off on a little tangent...

 

Carol had no idea this was coming.

Turn the clock to zero, boss
The river's wide, we'll swim across it
Starting up a brand new day

"Use your joink-joinks Speed!"

Button 5 I think...

 

 

35 year running joke with me and my sisters. Religiously watched Speed after school. And Cap't. Chesapeake.

I watched the same thing when I was little! Man my sister hated when it was my turn to watch tv. Was Captain Chesapeake's sidekick a seamonster/seadragon? My memory is a little fuzzy on that.

    • Roughly AA average talent level, wider spread in talent, and at least a few parks where the run context makes Coors Field look like Dodger Stadium.  But it's good to see Pie having success.
    • Rick, you're looking at the Forbes estimated value of the franchise - not the size of their markets. Forbes is famously not very reliable with those things. You're also ignoring Northern Virginia and DC itself as other large, wealthy communities. There's a huge gap between the Nationals and the Orioles.
    • I'm going against most everyone else. I think Detroit will surprise us and take Martin. Our picks; 2. Spencer Torkelson 30. Bryce Jarvis 39. Bobby Miller
    • 1. Austin Martin, 3B/OF, Vanderbilt, Age on draft day: 21 Martin may not be the first overall pick this year, but he’s the best overall prospect due to his combination of performance, athleticism and all-around quickness. There’s some Javy Báez to his hand speed, although unlike the young Báez, Martin rarely strikes out. We haven’t seen a top college prospect this athletic since George Springer in 2011, although before the draft Springer had the two-strike approach of a turnip. Martin punched out barely 10 percent of the time in 2019, and just twice in 69 plate appearances before baseball shut down in March. . He’s going to end up at a skill position — center, third, second, maybe shortstop if his arm is back to normal — and hit for average with developing power. That’s the kind of probability with upside you want at the first overall pick. 2. Spencer Torkelson, 1B, Arizona State, Age: 20 Torkelson hit everyone’s radar in the spring of 2018 when he hit 25 home runs as a freshman to lead all Division I hitters, then hit 7 more on the Cape that summer to finish one off the league lead. Torkelson is extremely strong, hitting for all this power with almost no stride and a two-handed finish that makes his swing almost short by comparison to most power hitters, and while he’s shown some swing-and-miss he’s also been willing to take walks, leading the country this spring before the shutdown. He’s a good enough athlete that he might be able to handle left field, although I’d bet on him spending most of his career at first base. ... but even if he’s a 50 hit/70 power guy in the end, that’s someone who hits fourth and makes a handful of All-Star teams. 3. Asa Lacy, LHP, Texas A&M, Age: 21 Lacy separated himself from the rest of this year’s very strong college pitching... , showing he could hold 93-94 mph deep into games, touching 98 mph, with a plus changeup and above-average slider. Lacy’s got a great starter’s build and his delivery works, with a big step-over stride and good timing. He works well to both sides of the plate, although his command and control are still inconsistent; the ability to reach back for 97-98 mph is great, but his stuff is good enough that he could just hold 92-93 mph all game and probably throw better strikes. If he’d had a full spring, and kept this up, more people would likely see him as a candidate to go 1-1. If there’s a future No. 1 starter in the class, I think it’s him.
