  1. The problem right now with sending Miranda down, who plays first? Arraez some times, but who would back him up? So I think Miranda has to stay and work through his batting issues. Correa and Larnach are soon off the IL, but neither plays first.
  2. With starters not making 6 innings anymore, I see a lot of piggyback situations developing here.
  3. Is Toronto a better hitters park than Minnesota? Are the Eastern Division teams better overall hitters than the Central? His current numbers might be reflective of what kind of pitcher he will be in Toronto.
  4. Grey, Ober, Sano, Correa, and Kirilloff out with injuries. Also Maeda and Alcala. Arraez and Bundy tested positive for covid. Injuries and illness will catch up with them sooner tor later. If not the team will make an amazing run when everyone get back. For now 14th may be high.
  5. Pretty sure Buddy tested positive for covid the day of or after his last start. He probably shouldn't have been out there at all.
  6. E.Rod. 19 years old. 14 games, 16 walks, 8 extra base hits. 5 Homers. Good start. Worth following. I hope it's real.
  7. As far as baseball times goes, there is usually about 5 weeks from the first spring training games to the start of the regular season. Right now we are about 5 weeks since the start of spring training this year. Add a couple of weeks to that for work outs prior to the first game of spring not counting guys who report early or are recovering from injuries, and players still haven't reached a normal time frame for the start of the regular season. Game timing whether pitching, hitting or defense is still off, although the starting pitching does look the best aspect of what we have seen so far, Hopefully the starters will look this good when the hitters start to show up. Although they count, I'd look at stats starting from May 1 forward.
  8. The way the bullpen looks, I think I may continue with the 6 man rotation and try to push the starters more into the 7 innings range. With that extra day between starts it wouldn't seem to be a problem.
  9. If you move Urshela to SS due to injury, does that downgrade the third base defense significantly? Arraez has looked ok there. I would much rather have Arraez in the lineup than Gordon. Leave Polanco alone at second base except for the occasional day off.
  10. Remind me never to pick up on a Doc post again. I'm really tired of these "lets all be negative" posts.
  11. When you watch him pitch he looks like a front of the rotation starter. He didn't pitch in 2020 but how many minor leaguers did? I'm not in the camp of always turning our most promising starters into relievers. Obviously our full season "train on your own" in 2020 was not well managed for our minor league pitchers. But maybe with the way the rules were set for that year it was as good as it could be.
  12. This team has a lot of sticks. Getting them all regular bats will be interesting. Hopefully the lineup will start the year hot and it won't matter who gets too DH on any given day.
  13. For however long Correa is here, this is a good deal. Following the long term signing of Buxton with the signing of the best(?) free agent shortstop in the game, maybe the reputation (at least by fans) as a place free agent don't want to come too will change.
