    With all the starters that have a legit shot at being ready next yr i would rather see them get a shot than a 38yr old Happ in 21.

    I saw a report that Monty has been 93-95 even touching 96 this spring. I haven't watched him pitch yet, has anyone else seen him throwing that hard? That would be a hell of a velo jump from him when he pitched in 17. If i remember correctly he sat more 89-91 then. If that velo jump is legit his ceiling has gone from a backend starter to a 2-3 with the quality and command of his other pitches

    Also anyone know what pitch it is that Schmidt throws around 90mph. His FB is 94-96 and iwhatever it is doesn't seem to have the action of a 2 seem or cutter. Does he throw a straight CU that hard or is it something else?
    I think Montgomery was more 91-94 with the occasional 95 mph. 93-96 mph would still be an uptick.

    Dayne I think the 90 mph pitch is a 2-seam. His changeup is not that fast and neither is his slider.

    Thats what makes the sense velo wise but i just haven't seen it have the usual 2 seam action unless it's very late im just not seeing it. It seems to have more of a sinking action but i didn't think he threw a sinker. Its a very good pitch for him when he isn't opening his front side 2 early.

    The kid has great stuff and is going to be e very good starter soon but after that last start u can see he needs to get some more innings in AAA.

    He's got to work on keeping his front side closed longer and that should really help with command, especially when he doesn't have his best stuff

    Well, you all seem to keep this buried on page 14 in between ads. I guess I’ll have to bring it out today.

    It is starting to look like The Yankees screwed up by NOT signing Didi to continue to play SS.

    Glyber Torres has already made 4 errors in just 9 games so far. And those 9 games are not even full games for the kid. If you break it even further down he averages about 3-4 innings per games so that comes down to just 4 games.

    Then break it down even further. 4 errors in basically 4 games is projected to be 162 errors for a 162 games.

    Not good folks. All I hear on here is the talk of run prevention and air tight defense.
    AND WAR..Is Torres giving us good defense so far?

    At that rate his WAR will be in the negatives.....


    You can say what you want to say about Didi and how his bat declined after his surgery. But his defense will always be better than Torres ever will.

    Way to go Hal and Cashman, trying to save a buck.

    Well, it looks like it burned them! It’s going to be a long season folks.....

    It is not what everybody wants but this is what you people will be seeing if everybody gets through the rest of the spring unscathed.

    1. Cole
    2. Tanaka
    3. Happ
    4. Monty
    5. Loaisiga

    I expect a little decline in Cole from 2019 but he will be the ace no doubt. I don’t think playing in NY evens bother this guy. He is a machine.

    Tanaka will be good if not very effective and the elbow worries are long gone.

    Happ will be a roller coaster. I think he will start out hot and cool off mid summer and then turn it up in the 2nd half and finish with a nice season.

    Monty will have his ups and downs. I don’t expect him to last when Pax returns.

    Lasagna will be the surprise. He will be there all season and may force German to the pen. I think the kid will be so good that they can’t remove him from the rotation.

    Hopefully the Coronavirus subsides in warmer weather. At the very least the games could still go on with no fans in the seats. We can watch on TV. Just keep the games going.

    I have my auction for my fantasy team in a week. I currently have Judge from last season as I paid $30 for him and we can keep 7-9 players in our league with our freeze system on where you finished in the standings. If Finished 6th and can keep 8 players if I want.

    Now with his injury and doubt I might dump him and try to get him cheaper in the auction but people always overbid with power guys.

    Should I dump him or keep his $30 price? We play the standard $260 cap with 23 in the starting lineup. 14 hitters and 9 pitchers....Our 17 reserves are not bought, we have lightning rounds after the initial auction to fill your 40 man team. This league has been going on since 1989. I joined in 2001 with my buddy who was looking for an auction league to get in.

    Economically speaking, perhaps you should dump him due to the risk factor, but I would probably keep him, so that I could root for him wholeheartedly. Imagine, if you dump him and the guy who picks him up and you are going for the championship and you are partly hoping for Judge to flop. I wouldn't want to do that with Judge.

    Four errors in 9 games in ST no less at a position he hasn't played regularly in years

    In 5 minor league seasons he played in 321 games at SS, 2739 innings, had 1391 chances, 459 PO and 860 Assists with a total of 72 E's for a fld% of .948. Not great but not trash. Ozzie the wizard only played 1 season in the minors, he had 23 E's in 65 games for a fld% of .943 !

    I miss Didi as much as anyone. Give Torres some time before you throw him under the bus. After watching Didi hit for Philly.....

    In people under 65 and not with immunodeficiency, it is still serious but not nearly as deadly as to those within the above categories
    Right now numbers have it at a 3% mortality rate
    The flu, I believe is closer to 1%.
    That is not an insignificant difference but still nothing to get terrified by

    I also think, while yes this is obviously an issue. Not everyone who has it has been tested. Meaning that the fatality rate is probably lower. While still obviously a concern, we don't have all the #s.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.
