I got a few thoughts on it...



Though it actually does shock me a bit. Isreal won a "play in" tournament while Korea is considered a big powerhouse for the WBC. This was the March Madness equivalent of a 15 seed beating a 2 seed.

Israel had bases loaded four times.

I was watching a bit this morning.  Israel had the bases loaded in the second.

The Korean pitcher, a lefty, was trying to paint the outside corner against EVERY right handed hitter he saw and not having much luck.  Middle outside to low outside every pitch.  He walks in a run, the #9 hitter (righty) for Israel comes up and proceeds to swing at three straight balls off the outside edge of the plate.

Just brutal to watch.

I also watched Fuld make a heckuva catch in center.

    • Yeah, the game still took 3:10 even with the faster pace. I dont want more time added to the pitch clock.
    • I strongly believe Westburg is being showcased at triple A so that he can be the center of a trade package for a top tier pitcher in July.  
    • Im not sure but I think all 5 SB's were uncontested? To me thats a little more of a dramatic difference than I was expecting.  If this trend holds faster players will see a big increase in value.
    • The missed third strike on Justin Turner in the 8th inning was one of the worst calls I've seen. He got lucky with the pitch clock strikeout to Devers but Baker gets out of that inning without giving up a run if that's called correctly. 
    • This is a pretty broad leap from signing Frazier, or trading Lopez, leading to Grayson being in in a mid-relief role. 
    • 1: I literally said, "there is big downside risk obviously." 2: Vick improved his passing in his early 30s before I think he got hurt and lost his starting job.  Lamar could do the same, which would counteract his loss of athleticism.  A ton of other quarbacks that improved in their late 20s early 30s.  Geno Smith wasn't a starter until he was, at age 33.  Alex Smith had worse accuracy numbers than Lamar for the first 5 years of his career before he figured it out.  You speak in absolutes as if you know exactly what's going to happen in the future with Lamar. 3: In 2029 you might be looking at backup qbs with 20 million salaries.  He'll still be tradeable if you really want to walk from him.  If you think he should be tradeable now then he'll likely be tradeable in 4-5 years. 4: Maybe we have different definitions of baggage, but when I think baggage, I think Aaron Rodgers going on darkness retreats and keeping the Packers in contract limbo for like 5 straight years.  Or Russell Wilson's office and plane ride antics.  Or Deshaun Watson.  Or Myles Garrett when he swung his helmet.  Lamar is negotiating a contract.  Poorly?  maybe, but that's not really baggage.
    • Not disagreeing with you it’s just a team that would likely trade for Urias would be “contending”.  Those types of teams just don’t trade away pitching. They don’t. So we’re looking at a prospect return, when right now we need MLB immediate help.
