Not to harp, but just as illustration, how can anyone look at the way this BP has been building the last couple of years under Avila and think we were seeing his hand in Dombrowski's regime?

I’m not picking up what you are putting down.  is this better BP construction?

19 Ks in this game so far.  The problem I can see looming is that if the ball really is deader, but the lead time between when HRs go down and hitters return to a higher OBP batting style, offense will fall so badly the league will pull the plug and make some long term totally counterproductive move to compensate. IOW it's going to have been a lot less painless to evolve into the current situation than it will be to evolve out of it.

joe sheehan made the same point.  said we will experience a huge shift in favor of the pitchers.

the obvious move would be to clamp down on the top of the K zone a little, but it's not trivial to get Umpires to change either even if you assume they would be willing.

Just saw the replay of Baddoo's HR. Yeah - it's just one talent among many that have to work together, but the kid's bat speed just jumps out at you as crazy fast. I wonder what weight bat he is swinging.

Selecting Baddoo was one of the smarter decisions of the Avila era. Even if it doesn't work out, it is rare to find his power + speed combo in the Rule 5 draft. Selecting Mize, Greene, Torkelson and whoever they pick at #3 this year is easy. It is the smart under the radar moves that really separates organizations and there hasn't been enough of those thus far in the rebuilding process. But, Baddoo was at least a step in the right direction.
