Well Mr. Wotherspoon was pretty unimpressive in the debut. 

He was just optioned to AAA for Cobb coming off the IL tomorrow.

A team no one expects to finish above last didn't think Araujo was worth holding onto for 10 more measly days.

A team everyone hoped would contend figured Araujo was good enough to be carried an entire season.

Pretty wild swing of evaluation there.

Or, maybe the bottom part of our 40 man roster is better now.   Or, Araujo doesn’t look as good this year.

He needs to stay there.

Wow, didn’t see that coming but I can see why, he’s been atrocious. 

Gives me hope that Davis is voted off the island at some point this year.

I agree, although that salary is going to be hard to get rid of.

At some point, unless Elias really wants the team to tank, Davis is going to be gone. And really this team can get a top three draft pick with or without Davis.

As much as I want Davis off the roster, I don’t want to see the boo birds come out tomorrow for him. 

If you want to boo Davis just be quiet when his name is announced.

I...agree.  Leave him alone on opening day.

It was embarrassing when Hyun Soo Kim got booed before his first MLB at bat. 🤦‍♂️

I was impressed when Jones spoke up for Kim.

    • Houston has also been able to acquire arms late in the draft or cheaply in the international market and develop them into trade assets. I'm prepping for Rule 5 draft stuff and it's unbelievable how many good arms they have in the minors that came out of nowhere (10+ round pick or older international signees). They all throw hard and miss bats. 
    • Hopefully the Nats finish this thing off today.  They have gone I think 81-40 since starting 19-31.  That is remarkable.  The Cardinals do what they always do in October....overachieve.  Thankfully, they are about to get stuffed by the much better team.  This will be a really good WS matchup regardless of who comes out of the AL. 
    • Eh, I don't really buy that in this case.  Liberatore is a lefty, has better mechanics, and more projection remaining, so I think there is a fair case for Liberatore then and now. It's really close though, Rodriguez is the better pitch at the moment, but no one really cares who is the better pitcher at 19 in low A ball. 
    • The old Liberatore vs Rodriguez debate. I think most “experts” will always try and rank Liberatore slightly higher than Rodriguez because they all criticized the O’s for “reaching” for Rodriguez. 
    • Someone pointed out before that Vaughn got pitched around his last year in NCAA. Let’s see what happens to Torkelson when/if he gets that treatment.  I don’t see how we could draft Torkelson.  Even if we trade Mancini, Mountcastle is still likely a 1B.  When team building I don’t think you pencil in your future 1B and DH spots first.   I’d like to see us draft a bat, but if the best SP is available then I’m open to that. I think that bats are safer picks and would help the system more.  Hopefully Detroit makes a mistake at 1:1 and we get the player Elias thinks is #1 overall. Lots of baseball to play till the draft. 
    • HOU got burned with taking Pitchers Appel and Aiken high. HOU has been grow the bats and buy the arms since then. Using their prospect bats to acquire proven SP.  I do think bats are safer picks over pitchers. Last draft we took lots of bats compared to pitchers. It could’ve been lots of factors at play, but I think it was a strategic decision.  Not having the number one pick in next years’ draft means we’ll likely be deciding on the 2nd best SP, Torkelson, or other NCAA and HS bats.    
    • I hope Buck gets the Phillies job.
