    Kris Bryant is dominating spring training!

    Spring training is meaningless, but with two weeks to go his numbers were already up there with the best spring training performances of all time. It's been fun to watch for what it is regardless of...

    I wouldn't call it a calculated risk. More like a "we don't need to calculate because we're rich, *****" risk.

    Kris Bryant

    True. By then we should know if we're a contender or not. There's very little that's more predictive than the first nine games of the MLB season.

    Where did you read that? It's not what's been reported anywhere I've seen.

    They've shown and stated multiple times that they prefer bats with an early pick. Specifically, they've said they consider college bats the best bet and college pitchers the worst bet in the draft,...

    It's dumb any way you slice it. That list of players who came up opening day that Boras was screeching about didn't all play 162 games their rookie years. Bryant could easily come up and play 140+...

    I didn't say it was bad, per se. I just said he was a "meh" player who probably owes Puig and Abreu a round of drinks for the current reactionary market for Cuban players (I felt the same way about...

    He probably predicted comments on the Cubs facebook page pretty accurately, though.
  9. Cuban INF Hector Olivera agrees to deal with Dodgers

    Surely you didn't think you could just take his Cuban numbers at face value? That's like looking at minor league player in his late 20's who's been playing in the A+ Cal league for ten years and...

    Again, he's a 30-year-old "third baseman" with mediocre translated Cuban stats and a reportedly bum UCL who hasn't played in the field since missing a year due to his serious genetic blood disorder...

    I don't think it's a coincidence that he ended up getting signed by the team that can afford to flush money down the toilet.

    What's uninformed about it? He's a past-his-prime hitter with relatively mediocre Cuban numbers. He hasn't played defense in years. He lost a season due to a genetic blood disorder that some have...
  13. Cuban INF Hector Olivera agrees to deal with Dodgers

    He's a 30-year-old DH with a serious blood condition who might need TJS. You'll forgive me if I didn't catch the vapors from some dog and pony showcase events that didn't actually seem to impress...

    I think this is another "meh" player who owes a huge thank you to Puig and Abreu. Could be worth the chance for a team playing with Monopoly money like the Dodgers, though.

    That's about MLB breakout players. This is asking about lower level players who could become top prospects.

    And I'm picking Gleyber Torres to rocket up prospect lists.

    Well yeah, if he's not breaking records then he's just another agent coasting on reputation and fending off rap moguls.

    This goes right back to my point that Boras's single-minded pursuit of...

    In what way? An auction isn't really a negotiation, and that's essentially his business model. Hoard the best players he can and put them up for public auction.

    Whereas if he gets injured or flames out, he could stand to make $0 and $0 in those seasons. He's obviously giving up some potential upside for earnings certainty, but if he wasn't, there would be no...

    Has anyone publicly given Boras **** for how much money he cost himself by holding into his Robinson Cano lottery ticket too long and getting it snaked from him right before he could cash it in?

    I could see that, too. It also depends on what they do with Baez. I wouldn't necessarily want Baez and Olt in the same lineup.
