Clutch hitting.

At least Arizona is up 6-0 and the Tigers are 3 outs away from a loss.

Hopefully the Red Sox picking one slot before the Orioles (if things hold) doesn't come back to haunt us.

Didn't they have a questionable first round pick this season?

Yeah, very questionable.

Juan Soto pulled mid-game (12-4 gives cover), but perhaps trying to sit on NL batting title after 1-for-1 start.

Yeah, not a fan of that move. A 60-game season batting title is going to have an asterisk regardless, don't add to it with that kind of thing.

Could we get a Hunter Harvey back-to-back going into the offseason so he can learn what it feels like?   Perhaps even a SV opportunity for grins.

Would he be the first Brailyn to pitch in the majors?

It looks like he's the first in MLB. There was a Brailyn Duran in the Oriole' system a few years ago.

So what’s the consensus on Akin? He has a pretty good k rate, but a bit home run prone. Is he a solid starter, or just “a guy”? 
I like him and I think he’s a future piece, but what do you folks think?

Schubert’s last words were supposedly,  “and so it ends...”

 

Philip, did you see the PBS program the other night with young (30ish) artists performing Schubert compositions? Not my usual fare. I watched because a friend's son and daughter-in-law were among the performers.

I think he is just a guy. No more than a 4th starter at best in my opinion. Definitely an asset though.

I wouldn't be surprised if he was in the bullpen by 2022 if things mostly go well with the other starter prospects. He is definitely behind Rodriguez, Hall, and Baumann. I like him less than Kremer. Probably a tossup with him, Lowther, and Zimmermann.

Everybody breaks though, so nice to have quantity along with quality.

Sisco is at 221/368.

Yep, I continue to be annoyed that Severino had 50 percent more starts than Sisco. Sisco should be getting most of the starts against righties, in my opinion. Ultimately, neither of them is the long term answer at catcher (nor is either expected to be), so it doesn't much matter.

The superior defense argument doesn't come up much anymore.

Well if he gets a save it will have to be an 8 out save.

Hyde obviously doesn't think he can handle the pressure of closing.

    • You are right. There will be baseball when profits can be made again.
    • I think you will be seeing “essential” workers begin to be vaccinated by Feb-March.  December and January will be healthcare workers and the elderly but this makes up probably less than 25 percent of the population. 
    • Umm..yes, you are wrong.  Several teams treat the position as of its a full time position.  That at bat stats is a fact you can’t argue against.  That’s the definition of “full time”.    
    • March should be early enough to book your flight and hotel.
    • I wonder if they would still be on the hook for the entire salary if they waited til after a potential announcement of a shortened season?
    • Nah, I’m not wrong. however, If I may my father’s comment half way through a performance of Mahler 8: ” well, I’ve had about as much of this as I can stand. Let’s go find something interesting to eat.“ And that is what I am going to do… God bless you and happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
    • I posted way back at the beginning of the thread that I thought it was possible Nunez had another level of improvement left in him.   If I’m guessing (which is all it is), I think Hays and Santander will be better hitters than Nunez at their respective peaks.    But I don’t know it for sure.   It’s sort of a moot point since we agree Nunez isn’t really competing with those two for at bats.   As to Stewart, I’m guessing he will not turn out to be as good a hitter as Nunez, though I’m not sure about that, either.
