    The rules are indeed the same but by dynamic I mean the way in which teams and players are operating within those rules. I have no data to support it, but it seems that more players who reject the...

    Good point. The QO dynamic has changed, though Desmond's poor year (and turning down a fine multi-year deal) is mostly to blame for his predicament. Best scenario is Walker has one of his better...

    Agree. Though I suspect Conforto will have to hit his way into the #3 spot, rather than have it given to him. Conversely, veterans, especially Wright, will be given the benefit of the doubt.

    Matt kills the English language with a trident every time he presses "Post".

    "I'm Brick Tamland. People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks."

    The title of this thread is an oxymoron. Dude can't write, can't report, is devoid of insight and regurgitates the obvious with annoying, flip-flopping regularity.

    "If they are scouting him, they're looking for velocity, pitch movement, arm angles, mechanics, etc...the results are secondary"

    Yes. And if all or most of the above impress them, or any other...

    If Niese pitches well tonight it helps us in the standings, against a potential WC rival, and it gives his reputation a badly needed and well-timed boost in the eyes of those allegedly interested in...

    Not what I said. I'm assuming Muno goes down when Wright returns; Campbell remains.

    Deeper into the season I'd like to see them move Tejada and have Reynolds promoted to assume his bench role. ...

    When Wright comes back the team gets better and deeper. Campbell knows how to play and will help us beyond third base. I'm guessing Muno goes down but my ideal situation much farther down the line...

    I'm disappointed that I won't get to see if he could develop into a force every fifth day this year.

    But since he will eventually come back and we have capable near replacement backups, what...

    I'd take that. Definitely a physical resemblance.

    What makes Nimmo an enigma is his unorthodox past, starting with a lack of observed reps at known levels to project against. It's much easier to...

    Share your concern about needing to improve his lefty splits yet also agree with Sick's outlook for Nimmo. Yes, it's another fluff piece but there have been a number of encouraging, if not glaringly...

    Apologies for the stream of conscious Metro North heading into a tunnel nature of the post. I was ready to be bashed for content, not style (since I write for a living). But you boys are right.

    I don't think the buyer/seller construct is the way to look at this. No way they give up any part of the farm for a rental player or to take on a salary dump (my definition of buyer). They're...

    I think it's the opposite. Valverde's problem is he is going after batters, all out, without recognizing the fact that his fastball isn't what it was. Not the same velocity, location or movement. ...

    For a start or even two it makes no sense. Plus, they may eventually push them each back a start when they reassess but so far the reporting has said that they don't plan on it. Mejia's due for an...

    Blister or not, tired bullpen notwithstanding, I'm glad they pulled Mejia after 5. An unheard of 9-0 lead in an April game for a young guy coming off a rough start and whose innings will be capped...

    He was out by a mile.

    The ball kicked around in a weird way and ended up taking the worst possible of paths.

    Well aware of the rule change, FOC. Too bad Tejada was not. He could have done a number of things, from a fade-away slide to getting into a rundown. But he stopped. Played possum. Quit.
