  1. He did, but he also said he stood by his statements when they acquired Osuna.
  2. Nothing he's done so far to suggest so.
  3. Houston has had their asst GM snatched by other teams twice in the last four years. The new guy has been in the position for a year.
  4. So what first round prospect isn't scouted throughout school and at showcases? And which team at the top of the draft doesn't draft an elite prospect?

  6. Well then that's a really silly comment, because literally every team drafts "famous" players by that definition.
  7. Yeah Clemens and Manning both have pro athlete dads, but it's a little ridiculous to say they target famous people based on two such picks in three drafts.
  8. Not really scary until they actually have a team that doesn't suck.
  9. He's a DH with a 106 wRC+ who spent half his season playing a terrible RF. Him having a WAR of 0.7 is far down on the list of examples to question WAR with.
  10. Paredes 2-4 with a 2B and BB. Hill 1-4 with a 2B.
  11. Paredes went 1-2 with a HR and 2 HBP. Azocar 1-3 with a 2B and a BB.
  12. It's just absurd to suggest that a player is simultaneously good enough for the team to hold him down in order to manipulate service time and bad enough that it takes the player 3.5 years from the time he first reached AA in order to make the majors at the earliest. Barring injury, no quality prospect takes that long to go from AA to the majors, and I doubt a team has ever held a player down that long in order to manipulate service time.
  13. Prime Miggy hitting these juiced balls would be an amazing sight to see.
  14. It wouldn't be really surprising for somebody to establish themselves as the clear number one next year, it happened with Mize last time.
  15. I'd be surprised if he stays in AA. He's already got more than a season at the level and he's performed well. He's not gonna be challenged there anymore. Curious to see how he performs with the juiced balls in AAA.
  16. His fly ball rate and ISO numbers don't support this at all.
  17. Gotcha, thought you were talking about I'm the ESPN article you quoted.
  18. Obviously he's not hitting for that type of average and is hitting for more power, but his current slash line has the same OBP-BA difference of .80 and his OPS of .919 isn't far off from my .920 prediction. P.S. There is no reason to read anymore of that old thread, my prediction then was 100% serious.
  19. The Dodgers did it by hiring Friedman from the Rays.
