What do we think his actual, average velocity is. Weren't people saying yesterday that the Seattle gun is fast?

No idea, but I've read for a little while now that he's back into 92+ land, instead of 88-90. The swinging strikes on the fastball are the real indicator here.

He is sitting at 95 through four. When he need to get a strike it drops to 93 or 94.

If you aren't there already watching, you know what that makes you? A LOLLYGAGGER! It's all very simple: You post the lineups on the gamethread, and then go to the website, click on the website, and sit back with a beer and watch Andino apologize for blowing Hammel's W, reporters bore Buck with dumb questions, and Adam Jones try to figure out WTH Amber Theoharris is up to with her interminable four-part interview.

OFF is no lollygagger!

It had Chen at 93ish last night, so I'd imagine Tillman's probably sticking 93 frequently. Great to see...especially since his offspeed stuff is keeping Seattle honest.

    • Live reaction everyone was upset by the lack of pitchers. My quick synopsis. Elias stuck to his guns by drafting all shortstop, catcher or center fielders as position players. I’m excited to see how they are able to do in terms of signing the high school kids. I think the draft will be defined by the success of Honeycutt and any of the high school position players. If I ranked the players I’m excited for it would be Honeycutt, George, Layton, O’Farral, Tess, Anderson, Overn. Looks like speed and defense were highly emphasized. Wonder if that has to do with the pitch timer rules.
    • I'd rather hold on to everybody and go with what we have. World Series be damned. Say goodbye to Santander, Urias and Mateo in the offseason, sign FA pitchers

    • Who are the FA pitchers available in the offseason? (other than Burnes)
    • Nothing can guarantee anything. But adding that kind of SP would give us the best chance possible (barring injury) this season and for the next few. Trading 2 of Holliday, Mayo, Basallo is not even on the table or a part of any realistic discussion/scenario. That kind of haul has not been landed for a pitcher and certainly not in this current era of MLB where prospects/cheap young players are more valuable than ever. Maybe Paul Skenes (currently) could land that kind of haul? Otherwise, the value proposition is not there to be considered. Skubal hasn’t even amassed a 10.0 career WAR and before this year didn’t even have a 5.0 WAR season. He simply not worth anything close to that, no matter what irrational fear or fandom suggests. 
    • Again there is nothing in terms of precedent in the last 10 years that suggests a pitcher of Skubal’s pedigree/career achievements with that amount of control left can bring back a Soto kind of haul. Look at Soto’s season average in terms of WAR and look at Skubal’s. The two are not similar in terms of value. Either Morosi is serving as a mouth piece for the Tigers in order to overstate Skubal’s value and drive up the price? Or he is serving his heart’s interest as a New Yorker and Yankee fan.
    • Doesn’t guarantee us a ring. That’s the risk. We could survive a package of Holliday, EBJ, McDermott, Norby, Stowers, and Willems.   Honestly, we could survive a lot but trading two of the big three would be just bidding against ourselves.
