Thanks Seth. These interviews, every one of them, are great. Will be fun to watch Turner this year to see how the hitting is coming along.
That's a different kind of wind. :)
Adding my voice to the chorus--excellent article.
But I want to expand on "That projection is a range of possibilities, but it's a statistically backed range. We average them out and derive a...

It's pretty much meaningless. Pitchers are ahead of batters--they've been in camp longer--and are more focused on getting feel and improving location than on getting batters out. Plus, mostly...

I don't doubt it.
But let's think about the math. I'll guess that a sellout is worth 3 mil of revenue. If he doesn't pitch those games, they only get 1 mil per game. So him pitching those two...
Congratualtions on 20 years, John, and best wishes for seeing 30 and more.

Nothing wrong with that at all. The only question is how much of his success in AA can be attributed to be older, more experienced than most of the hitters, and whther that success will carry over...

Two others to consider are:
Dakota Watts. Finally seemed to put it together last year at AA (although he was a bit old.) 28 games, 36 innings, 31 hits, 31k, 10 walks, 0.74 ERA. I thought he...

Three guys I expected to see either here or on the starters list (more likely here) and didn't, but maybe I missed them. Thoughts?
Another guy is...
Can anyone identify who is who in the pictures?
I remember vividly. We had a great team, and needed to win one game out of the last three. I was a kid living on the east coast and couldn't imagine that we would lose all three. And of course...

Pretty much agree. Only argument might be Oliva. WHen he came up, he was the Buxton of his age. Ceiling was Willie Mays. And when you watched him the first few years, he was the real deal. Then...

A "few" comments:
1. I suspect Meyer will be at AAA, although there's definitely a logjam. But while there may be more potential on a AA roster, the current hitting and pitching talent is better...

I understand the rest of it, but don't get "take advantage of having more of their potential top-performing years under cost-controlled scenarios". You use up a year of control every year they...

"many of us have had the reasonable expectation that Stewart ended up being mentally slated on our prospect list for a call-up at some point during 2016"
I believe he will be 21 for all of the...
But get rid of his age 17 and 18 seasons in the VSL and DSL--which IMO are meaningless--and he's at .286 Get rid of 2010--his first full season was a tough one for him--and he's at .300. I...

I've been hoping Meyer would inherit that.
