    How many 4th outfielders are clearly better than Cave defensively? Lewis and Celestino are reasonably close defensively. IMHO there are more pressing matters.

    You will not hear Cavaco mentioned without the word raw. As a 3B/SS, he plays positions of our favorite teams greatest organizational position need. Solid pick.

    When I lived in Philadelphia there was a story circulating about what bad fans they are.
    It was said if they opened the stadium so young children could hunt for Easter eggs, the fans would boo the young kids who didn't find any.

    If I hadn't read somewhere that Falvey was considered to be a pitching guru, I would think our favorite team is looking to play Beer Ball.

    90%+ of all teams won't find an ace in free agency. They will start loading up on pitching at some point.

    Andy MacPhail used to say buy bats, develop pitching. My guess is most of our starting pitching will be homegrown no later than 2022. 5th solid first round pick in a row.

    If it's not broken, don't fix it. I can't be the only one on the board that coached.

    It's not speculation. On MLBTR and/or MLB.com he has been referred to as a pitching guru. And no, I don't have a link. I do understand how painful it is, for some members to hear positive things about our FO. Get used to it.

    I give him an 80% chance of having a long and productive career with our favorite team. Kind of reminds me of board favorite Aaron Hicks. Expectations can be a bear.

    IMHO our bullpen had nothing to do with it. Our star power was hobbled and our starting pitching did not match up well. We will be ready for the Yankees this time.
