    The next big Sensation....

    If im not mistaken they knew each other, in fact i recall reading they may have gone to same school and Ohtani actually took his number after he left.

    Madness!

    I'm thoroughly disappointed in the lot of you that no one had yet posted this...

    I miss that guy. His family must’ve taken a long summer vacation.

    How about all-in on Corbin?

    For all the talk about Kershaw being washed up, he’s got an ERA at 2.4 man, he’s going to get paid if he opts out. Could really screw the dodgers over

    How about all-in on Corbin?

    Corbin will likely be the best available free agent starter, unless Kershaw opts out. Think 5/$100MM, not 5/$40MM.
  8. Like Chuck said, judging by Suarez' and Canning's stats, it doesn't seem to do much good. Too many balls still find holes in the big OF area. Baseball was not meant to be played a mile above sea level. Fences at normal distance = HRs left and right. Fences moved well back = hits left and right.

    Any word on Trout?

    It's his heart. What's the rush?

    The biggest hole in this organization is premier starting pitching talent. They have one guy in the entire organization with true ace talent, and he might need TJS. There are a couple #2 talents and a bunch of #3-4 types, but only the one ace. So yeah, if this guy has #1-2 potential, Eppler should seriously look into it. But I'm not sure he's that talented, and like Blarg I'm concerned with potential arm issues.

    The oddest thing about this, and this does seem to be accurate, is that Japanese pitchers usually have their innings controlled, correct? Ohtani never pitched that many innings in Japan. Tanaka and Darvish never were really pushed beyond normal limits there.

    Will the pitching health EVER stabilize???

    I think someone said it best in another thread: ”it’s probably time to stop rolling out the same group of injury prone pitchers and acting surprised when they get hurt every time” guys like Shoemaker, Tropeano, Meyer probably just need to be non-tendered at this point. If they go somewhere else and magically are able to stay healthy...fine. But we have got to move on to different options at this point. Time to part with Richards too. And guys like Skaggs, Ohtani, and JC Ramirez can’t be counted on for more than 130-150 innings Canning probably deserves a shot next season at some point and we need to sign a quality veteran starter too

    I went down like a jobber would after a Constable Corbin Deep Six.

    The next big Sensation....

    I'm not sure anyone can name a Japanese starter that came stateside that didn't incur arm problems. I really can't see doing this again.

    The next big Sensation....

    https://www.mlb.com/news/yusei-kikuchi-may-join-mlb-in-2019/c-290440098 Former Indians and Phillies right-hander Frank Herrmann now pitches for the Golden Eagles and has watched Kikuchi closely as an opponent in NPB's Pacific League. Hitters had "no chance" against Kikuchi during his dominant 2017 season, Herrmann said, but this year has been different, perhaps due to Kikuchi's left shoulder woes. "When we have faced him, we have hit him pretty well, and that's with a heavy left-handed lineup," Herrmann told MLB.com. "The [velocity] and sharpness of the slider seems to be down from last year. The one positive I've seen from him is that is he's becoming more than a [two-pitch] guy, which he predominantly was last season. He will now flip in a curveball early in the count and uses his changeup to guys that [are] on his fastball. Last year, there was never a need to get away from the [fastball/slider] combo.

    Anyone ever live in the Miami area?

    Do you like being raped by Castroites?

    The next big Sensation....

    He's 27 so unlike Ohtani he will be a free agent and will cost a lot more than what Ohtani makes.

    Why hasn't Keith Ellison been thrown out of the Democratic party yet? He's been accused of physical abuse. Do liberals actually care about women to the extent they claim they do, or do they just pretend to care in order to win votes?

    How about all-in on Corbin?

    1/2 year, $3.5 Thousand

    Ty Buttrey promoted

    Close, he's number 34.

    How about all-in on Corbin?

    Sign Keuchel; trade for Arenado; sign a smaller bullpen arm; trade Cozart for whatever we can get for salary relief; and then watch us be contenders again.
  23. we've almost reached the point where there's no one left to get injured. almost . . .
