I read he went to the thoracic outlet specialist.

Had surgery today. Maybe arm saving.

Asher will be a big guy going forward. He will take on the Worley role this year and perhaps while Britton is out pitch in some higher leverage spots. He has been very impressive so far.

More power to him if he can pitch well. Not like he was never given a chance here.  

He's been kinda crushed by right-handers...which predominate. SSS

It's time to stop being cute and trying to win games with a terribly short bullpen. Four up tonight, which included Brach, who we were trying to stay away from. Option Rickard, DFA Gentry, or DFA Kim. Enough.

Maybe the next step is a 5 man pen......

Buck always seems to be trying to play for the game two days away or next week, which is fine, except when you forget to win the games right in front of you because you have painted yourself into a self created corner of rules about who pitches now and who doesn't.   This is why we lost the playoff last year too because when you manage the same way all year (for the long term) and then you need to make a move out of the preordained box, he can't do it.

Do this and bring up three pitchers so they all can get burnt out.  Who needs extra players for defense (Gentry) or a bat we do not use (Kim) or a player with no future with this club because he is not worthy of a roster spot (Rickard).

I'm not sure about most of your post. I don't think Gentry or Rickard are going anywhere. It's probably time to remove Kim so he can go somewhere and get a chance to play. Also Nuno probably goes back down because he sucks.

hes pitched in 3 games, all loses and he was a major contributor to the outcome.

We've got an incredible amount of junk on the 40 man roster that needs to be sifted through.

Its about time to give Yacabonnis and/or Scott a shot.

Blank statement.  You should probably go on  record as to who the JUNK is so when the JUNK turns into Arrieta, members of this board can belittle your post.

My plea is to do one of these things (note the word "or"), but if you want a whole truckload of pitchers go nuts I guess, lol.

In his 5 Major League seasons between 2016 and 2020, Snell has only 2 Hit Batsmen in 556 Innings Pitched. )    Tony Gonsolin )has excellent raw numbers from the 2020 regular season. He had a 2.31 ERA and an 0.836 WHIP over 46.67 innings Pitched. And that's only a slight improvement from the 2019 regular season, when he tallied a 2.93 ERA and a 1.025 WHIP over 40 innings Pitched ....... he seems to be consistently excellent.     (WORLD SERIES) )))))) [GAME TWO]   TAMPA BAY DEVIL R AYS Austin Meadows - DH Brandon Lowe - 2B      Randy Arozarena - LF 崔志萬 - 1B  Manuel Margot Gomez - RF Joseph Patrick "J.P."

    • Yep, same thing when folks call a mid to late first round pick a bust because they are merely a ML player and not a really good ML player.
    • I think generally people tend to overestimate the number of players that a good farm system typically produces over a given period of time.   Let’s define a 50 as a guy who produces 10 WAR in the 6+ years he’s under team control.    In 2013, 200+ players debuted, but only 33 met that standard.    So basically, an average of one per team per year.   
    • As a kid of the 1970's, my hatred of the Yankees is well ingrained by now.  I happily vote WS where the Skanks lost pretty high.  Not higher than those our Orioles won, perhaps, but no Yankee win would occur before either of those two criteria are met.  And then there is every other team in the league to consider ahead of any NY win.  I don't think a Yankee win would even occur in my list... Sadly, it looks like Scott Van Pelt only had one measly vote.
    • It was 2nd division starter or utility guy, right? And with a 50 ceiling. That's a ML player who, best case, is a good starter on a good team or likely is still a guy with some value to a ML team. Especially if he can hold his own in the outfield. My take here is that: 1) Tony's understandably being conservative in general on this list because he hasn't seen a lot of these guys for a full year. 2) He's going by what he's heard. 3) There are guys lower on this list that are a bit farther away but who have higher potential. 4) Vavra, based on Tony and rankings from other sites with some credibility, has some potential to be a real contributor to the ML team within 2 years. I actually think Tony's grade is pretty accurate based on the feedback, but whether he should be ranked over Baumler, Mayo, Rom, Smith, Hall, Wells, Bradish, Stowers, Hernaiz, Haskin and others is up for debate and, ultimately, not really important. Heck, at least one site has him at 7. They must think he's decent. All those guys have risk and they all have had a big layoff from baseball, or at least from being seen. Vavra got put here because he's closer, he has produced on the field, and thus has somewhat lower risk, is my guess.
