  1. Franco's bat is still better than anything Kelenic brings. I think Kelenic has a good argument to be #2, but Franco is clearly #1. And yeah, J-Rod's upside is enormous. Could be #1 next year if Franco graduates.
  2. TBH I'm not sold on Kyle Lewis, and Haniger will probably be dealt in the next 12 months. Don't think we will end up with a logjam. Kelenic and J-Rod are the only 2 I am counting on taking everyday spots past next season. Will be interesting to see what type of bats we go after in FA with all the OF options. We basically have to go after 1 of the shortstops or Kris Bryant.
  3. Gilbert was catching too much of the plate but stuff looked good. Not a great debut, but he'll be good.
  4. Haven't been this hyped for a while.
  5. Yeah, Williamson was supposed to be a big sleeper when he was drafted. Has the tools to be a quality MoR starter, but health was the major concern. A lot of good pitching performances to start the year for our better prospects. Gilbert, Hancock, Williamson, Macko, and Carlson all pitched well. Kirby got hit a little, but stuff was good. (94-97)
  6. Its definitely concerning, but he's going to get at least this year + next year to learn how to hit MLB pitching. Going into the game, he had made strides at least statically in lowering his horrendous K% from last year, but he also hasn't hit the ball hard as frequently. If he can get himself to a league average hitter I'll be happy at this point.
  7. I walked away for a sec and heard the OH's... Sucks for Weidman.
  8. Yeah, same issues constantly showing up. Kind of over it at this point.
  9. https://www.espn.com/mlb/insider/story/_/id/31269026/kiley-mcdaniel-2021-mlb-draft-rankings-20-jordan-lawlar-jack-leiter-no-1-our-top-100 No paywall surprisingly.
  10. Yeah, that trade is looking better and better. Even if Trammell isn't more than a 4th OF, France alone was worth Nola.
  11. Your whole franchise is tainted. Whether a majority of the players in the lineup were on that team or not doesn't matter.
  12. Seager building that trade value. Fun comeback.
  13. Yep. Tommy John recommended for him.
  14. Looked kind of awkward, but not that obvious. Surprised Torrens realized that quickly.
  15. Guess Montero can look like that too... Should be a fun season. I expect we'll be mediocre to bad, but this team will be a lot more interesting to watch then the other bad teams we've had over the last 10-15 years. A few interesting pieces to follow as we wait for our top prospects to arrive and whatever free agents we're going to bring in over the next couple years. The bats I believe are the most important to our future in order are: 1. Evan White 2. Ty France 3. Kyle Lewis 4. Taylor Trammell Hope to see positives from them this year.
  16. With the way Montero has been this spring + opening day he probably will be at some point.
  17. ^Yep, looks good. Kept reading people saying he profiled better as a power reliever, but he's mixing in a bunch of decent pitches. Will be interesting to see how he does over a full season.
  18. Yeah, really the only thing holding him back. As talented as he is I have to think they are going to decline his option years at this rate.
