  1. Ok I'm going to agree with this. Considering how many starters the squad needs next year let's give Jax another chance as rotation depth.
  2. @big dog Guys like Jax and Barnes sure got a lot of time in the bigs, though. Head-scratcher. Perhaps because they were healthy. Duran, injured. Winder, injured. Balazovic, AA not ready. Drew Strotman was ineffective and maybe not ready, but since he is on the 40 man I could see an argument for him. Cano is not on the 40 man and I can't remember why but there was an advantage to waiting till next year for him (it was mentioned on TD, of course). I'm not sure who else could be causing your itchy head. We got to see more rookies this year than I ever remember happening. Out of the pitching auditions we can be excited about Ober and Ryan in the rotation and perhaps Jax and Moran in the pen.
  3. At the time Wells was the one that had me shaking my head. Starting pitcher of the year, big fastball, really good stuff and a huge frame at 6'8". C'mon man!
  4. Any reason Woods-Richardson came out after only 3 innings? I like him as a prospect, but starters only throwing 3 innings in AA doesn't exactly make my socks roll up and down. Since they didn't use him in the Olympics, he didn't pitch for weeks. They are cautiously building him up.
  5. Agree. My sports "career" was very limited, but I did play Y rec league basketball in my 40's and was very inexperienced when I started. Consequently my pinky finger was broken in a scramble for a loose ball. After that I learned how to protect myself better and I believe that is a skill. It would explain why some players seemingly never get injured while for others it might be the opposite.
  6. I think Miller went 6 for 6 or something like that the other day. Hell get there. Another outing like this from Strotman and perhaps a start for the big club is in order. He is on the 40 man. He could even give Ryan a week off although he is one day behind him pitching schedule wise. Miranda's mini slump is ova and the power stroke is back. Gleeman may be right about not calling him up. He is not on the 40 man yet and let him finish his green of a season on a high note right where he is. He won't be up until a ways into next season anyway
  7. Dang this kid is something else. Pissed for not protecting himself. I think we got a good one here.
  8. Nice to see Miranda bounce back after a mini slump. He got his slugging percentage back up this week. Celestino took some lumps with the big club, but you gotta like the grit he has shown in bouncing back.
  9. Had a couple and got a little obnoxious the other night, I apologize.
  10. This can be true, but if you are a 300 pound giant with knee trouble, you are probably plenty strong at 260. 275 whatever. The guy looks so uncomfortable all the time it just seems obvious.
