    I have to see more, but I thought he looked around the same speed as Mookie. I think 30 SB could be tough for him unless he gets on a ton. Players generally slow down a bit in their upper 20's, and...

    One thing that I've noticed is his speed doesn't seem elite like it was suggested by some reports. Hes fast, but there are many players faster than him. I think that's something you can judge...

    He's the best hitter in baseball this year. Every team massively underestimated him, despite it being well known that he was the best player in Cuba for years.

    Sandoval hasn't OPS'ed above .800 since 2011, why would we want that as our DH? The value he has comes from playing 3b. His offense is also massively better at home over his career, there's no...

    Pray for Stanton. I think that's when he is a free agent.

    WMB never seems to get the proper evaluation for his play from the organization and the media. They're still influenced by his fluke hot streak to start his career. He's hitting worse than JBjr. It...

    I'm not sure about the wisdom of doing both. You don't want to wear him out having him play a good portion of the offseason.

    I hope not. Very overrated player from what he did earlier in his career. Also it seems like every other year the Giants are pissed off at him for getting way out of shape during the offseason. Once...

    Not interested in Maeda. From what I briefly read he pitches in the high 80's to low 90's, with no real great secondary, just great command. It's hard to project how Japanese pitchers command will be...

    You can play in the AFL after getting called up. Trout played in the AFL after his first season. Winter league is definitely more likely though.

    Of course we win 3/4 vs the Royals when I want the Royals to win the central. Xander is on fire since getting back from the concussion DL.

    With Pedroia and Holt out I don't see why not. I think it's a very good and rarely done thing to give these players position flexibility at a young age. Being able to play multiple positions is very...

    I assume it's because he is on an innings limit. He's in the bullpen, but it's not as a reliever. The plan seems to be for him to pitch 2-3 innings around every 5 days.

    That would also make him attractive to a team like the Marlins. Kelly has high velocity, but his peripherals are lousy. I can't see him being anything but a bottom of the rotation pitcher. He's going...

    It's completely different than Bard. Bard was converted to a reliever after one terrible season starting in the minors. After that he soared through the minors. Bard's stuff was obviously top of the...

    Workman really has no business being in the rotation going forward. It's extremely clear that the bullpen is where he is best suited. At the very best he is a #5 guy in the rotation, nothing more...

    It's 20 ab's with what is probably a terrible travel schedule. Can't take anything from that. They already said he was going to be in the majors after the minor league season ends, so we will...

    I don't think anyone can say how much he has left in the tank. Sometimes players his age just lose it, players his age are also more prone to significant injuries. Konerko went from being a great...

    He looked good in his 3 inning debut. Had a good amount of swings and misses, his changeup surprisingly was getting a lot of swings and misses. His curve had nice movement, but he hung it a bunch of...

    I don't feel like looking up his LD rates, but he definitely seems to be pulling the ball a lot more this year with lots of fly balls. His increased batting average the last few seasons came from him...

    Sounds like he was playing hurt basically the entire season. Still had a valuable season because of his tremendous defense. I wonder if there's any connection with his hand injury last year or if...

    I would say Webster completely fits that definition as a guy that might take longer to figure it out. Webster is only 4 months older than Barnes. Barnes just got to the majors and has only been in...

    Yes, Cespede's power is such a rarity that he ranks 33rd in SLG% this year, 61st last year. Coco Crisp had a slightly higher SLG than him last year, so did Nava. Sure he has raw power, but its never...

    I wonder why Cespedes has so many RBI's. For months he hit behind Coco Crisp who had a .387 1st half OBP and lots of speed, Jaso who had a .353 first half OBP, Donaldson when he was playing like an...

    I'm not saying power isn't down in the league, of course it is. At the same time I'm pretty sure OBP is down as well. What I'm saying is that it's not hard to find players who have a lot of power,...
