Right, he was #10 on KLaw's list right up until the O's drafted him.  Now he's a possible bullpen arm.

That's not exactly what Law said.

He said he was torn on the O's selecting Grayson because they (the O's) haven't had much success developing players like him, and he may have injury/reliever risk if they don't develop him correctly.  It sounded to me like he does like the player, but is unsure if he will flourish in the organization based on the track record of Orioles' pitcher injuries (Bundy, Harvey, etc).

I believe Law had him ranked in the 20's overall before the draft.

Really good pick by the Nationals.

He’ll probably need TJS at some point, but the stuff is legit.

He said that in a mock before the O’s ever touched him, though. He thought that because he thinks that’s Rodriguez’ delievery is high-effort, so it isn’t as easy to repeat it over the course of a start.

I personally believe you can never predict injuries. To add that into your draft list is a recipe for disaster.

Endorse.  Had them last month for the first time on the road to Sarasota.  I am generally ambivalent about tacos and they were sooooo good.

I just put them on my calendar for my trip home and a nice lunch - guac for sure - do I go with the Austinite, the Longrider or Mean Verde (or one of each)?

I'd go with the corn tortilla over the flour, you get a second tortilla.  It isn't listed as an option on the menu but they have it.

I favor the Carnita and the Big Kahuna.  Longrider is also very good.

Overall, yes. With pitchers though, you can usually look at their delivery and have an idea about the kind of strain their mechanics causes.

Ace High, Caballero, Texas Flood, and Longrider are certified legit.

Tim Lincecum and a ton of other pitchers have had less than perfect deliveries. It depends on what works for that pitcher. Bundy was a workout warrior and blew out his elbow. It happens.

    • It would be cheaper and possibly more efficient to just buy the Rays.....
    • They will settle for no less than Rendon, Cole and Strasburg out of Cashman. Or maybe a trade for Lindor. 
    • I find Girardi annoying, but I think he was a good manager.    I think Boone has done a good job as well.    Those poor Yankee fans will have to live with 7 playoff appearances, 3 division titles and 4 ALCS appearances over the last decade.     And 27 straight winning seasons.   
    • All Roch said was, “I’d expect another catcher to join the organization, even if for depth purposes.“ I think it’s a foregone conclusion that we’ll add a catcher or two before spring training.    It doesn’t mean that whoever they acquire will slot above the players you named.    That will be sorted out in spring training.   
    • I feel like there were several seasons in the last decade where Girardi got more wins out of that team than he should have.  I can't remember which years, but there were a few.  I felt like he managed every game as if it was Game 7 of the WS, using Betances in every single medium to high leverage situation.  Even in spite of their payroll, there were a few years where the on-paper talent wasn't quite up to their normal standards....yet they still won a lot of games.  I think no matter who is managing, the Yankees will always have their fair share of players who outperform their norms simply by putting on that uniform.  This year was a little more pronounced, but we have seen other sports teams over the years have very high payrolls and still land under .500 because things just don't work out.  I think the 2012 Red Sox lost 90+ games and then won the WS the next year.  The Yankees never finish under .500, no matter what.  That is pretty impressive.
    • Everyone was a fan of Severino when he put up an 818 OPS in the first half.
    • The Surprise Saguaros clinched the AFL West title over the weekend.    It appears likely they’ll face the Salt River Rafters on Saturday for the League title.    If Kremer pitches today, he’ll be available to start the championship game, though I’m not sure he’d be chosen.
