Manning making his season debut right now in Connecticut.

So far first 4 batters have struck out swinging.

Edit: Note that this is the guy, out of everyone (Burrows, Funkhouser, Faedo) that has the best potential to become an ace.

Does the organization see him as an ace or is it your opinion?

Nearly every person see that kind of potential in him. From when was drafted it was always "top-of-the-rotation" arm stuff.

I have never saw him pitch but I hope the scouts and organization have plans to fast track him and get his ML career started. Or do we have to wait until 2019?

Not even at low-A ball yet, it'll be a while. Even if he's truly the next Max Scherzer, maaaybe you see him late in September of 2019. Not speaking off of any particular knowledge but that's generally how long it takes even for elite talent.

He's not the type you generally fast track, he's a high-school arm and didn't even pitch as much in high school as most (played a lot of basketball too).

But 33.2 IP 55K 8 BB over this season and last. It bodes well for a current 19 y/o.

Him and Beau are probably more 2020 timelines. Then you add Fredo to the mix on a similar timeline. That's why I'm a bit more bullish than most on the rebuild. Everything should gun to 2020, in terms of adding young players from JD Kinsler etc. Then in 2020 you have the young guys and the three pitchers (and yes at least one will crap out) to go with Miggy in hopefully and Ortiz role and a Verlander in a Kenny Rogers role.

....Pelfrey.....  Oh, yeah, that guy.  4.38 FIP and 1.257 WHIP in 11 GS this season.  Wango tango foxtrot.  Should'of offered him only the second year of that deal to him.

But, alas, only 2 QS.

And Jim Johnson is having a fine season for Atlanta, but at least we are not paying his salary.

Kinsler now tied with Brady Anderson with 44 leadoff homers. Of Course Anderson's all came in one roided up year.

Nick's lack of plate discipline costs a run.  If he takes the walk, he's on second for JD's single.  And there would still only be 2 out.  Those are the little things about this team that drive you mad.
