    Agreed. As long as he has the arm he likely just projects better defensively to third. They actually played him more at 2B than 3B last year in the minors.

    30-40 pounds to shed is absurd. But yeah, he doesn't seem likely to end up at SS.

    Thomas was a TE at Auburn, so he was always a large man. I think the biggest reason he was never really suspected is because Thomas was outspoken about steroids and called for testing well before anybody cared about steroids usage. He was also the only player to interview during the Mitchell investigation.

    Hacking organizations and committing crimes that costs you millions and draft picks isn't smart, that's bad strategy. If you want to gain that type of information you just hire somebody from that organization. The upside is the same and it comes without the extreme downside risk.

    The best run organizations don't feel the need to hack other organizations. You could argue the Cardinals were the best run organization a decade ago, but they've clearly been passed.

    The Cubs traded Torres for 3 months of Chapman, I don't think them trading Candelario suggests anything about him. Hes blocked by Bryant and Rizzo and they needed bullpen help.

    Microline has been talking him up a lot but still surprised to see him this high so soon. Really looking forward to seeing how he progresses next year.

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    Trading for him is one thing, but to give a guy coming of a 5+ ERA in the National League an extension before he even throws a pitch for you in ST is just disgusting.

    Shea is not a baseball player.

    Willis did not have a bad contract, he didn't even have a contract. The Tigers could have simply non tendered him. DD wanted Willis to be included in the trade and he gave him the good awful extension.

    Harbaugh and UM have pretty clearly outcoached Meyer and OSU in the last two seasons.

    Not sure if it was with Anibal, but I recall Porcello really struggling after 90+ pitches for a few years.

    Is DRS a counting stat? Cause 18 in just 99 games is absurd

    2018 Draft Pick Watch

    There's pretty much no chance Iglesias will get a 3+ year deal. From now until he retires he'll be a player that signs 1-2 year deals. It'll just be a matter of offering enough money for the one year.

    9/5 @8:10 Detroit Tigers vs Chicago White Sox

    Really disappointing for sure, but crazy to see him go 4-4 with 2 HRs and a BB with a torn UCL. I guess it's better they figured it out now rather than in Spring Training.
