I stand corrected. Always thought we held both records. I see now that the longest losing streak of the modern era is 23 in a row by the ‘61 Phillies. I still think the DBs have a decent shot at breaking it.
Hernandez has actually been pretty well-regarded. I know it’s just fantasy baseball, but he’s appeared on at least two top lists from Prospects Live and Fantrax, both inside the 250 range, which is impressive given how far out he is. I think nailing two guys from the top 30 this past signing period is huge considering we had nothing going for us two years ago.
The Pop one is definitely a mark against Elias. A reliever prospect with a legit out pitch was going to get taken, even coming off Tommy John. Pop is the type of player who can be hidden on the 26 man roster and get him through the season. Hell, dig into his peripherals beyond ERA……….if the Marlins sell off their bullpen pieces at the deadline, Pop is going to get high leverage innings, and might even close.
The parallels between Austin Hays and Nolan Reimold are impossible (at least for me) to ignore. Both very good all around talents with all star potential, and Hays like Reimold can't stay healthy enough to establish himself as one of the best young outfielders in MLB.
Agree fully on this. IL both of them now and let them heal instead of having them push and possibly get hurt worse. Call up McKenna and Diaz. If someone else gets hurt along the way, either put Stevie out there or find a way to add Zach Jarret to the 40.
