    Rodon to IL; Giolito activated

    edema within the flexor mass is essentially what you would see with a flexor muscle strain. Unlike golfers or tennis elbow, which involve the tendinous insertions from the proximal arm , this involves inflammation around the tendinous insertions or within the flexor compartment of the forearm. Of course they dont comment on the integrity of the ligaments (ie the UCL/ tommy john ligament), but i'm guessing none of this portends a positive outcome.

    2 more HR for bleday. 19 on the year. I still don’t think he’s the right pick at 3 but it’s getting to the point where it would be hard to be mad if he got taken at 3
  3. yonder might be slower than konerko
  4. apparently that GIDP had 110 mph exit velo.

    Bleday has been on an absolute tear. Been a pleasure to watch. Can't believe the power has developed to this extent - always had a great balanced left stroke. Hit and oppo bomb yesterday that hit memorial gym - serious power
  6. Thoughts on schedule for how difficult their schedule is (ie playing NO, LAC, LAR, KC, Phi) they have a few nice breaks.... First part of the season...have a chance to be 5-0 going into BYE (not predicting it by any means - but should certainly be minimum 3-2 and hopefully 4-1. road games are against favorable opponents. Long week before they travel to Den. Oak loses home game by playing in London really tough stretch coming off the bye, but.....at least we get NO playing outdoors and coming off a bye week. LAC at home followed by @ phi (feels like one of those two games will be flexed to primtime) is tough. Then Giants, @ lions again on thanksgiving. Kind of a bummer they dont get the extended week to host dallas and have to turn around again on the following thursday, but at least its at home. Really important and tough stretch to end season - @ GB will be tough. At least we get KC at home in cold weather. @ min tough too, but vikings could be out of it by then potentially.

    bleday on fire lately with 5 HR in last 14 ABs. .362/.458/.733 11 HR 20BB 22K as a team my commodores are hitting .325/.427/.503. Pitching traditionally our strong suit is finally rounding in to form too. Hard to say because in a 3 game super regional anything can happen, but anything other than Omaha will be a disappointment
  8. IIRC the rumor got floated like a day or two before dodgerfest (or whatever their equivalent of soxfest is) and Joc had a prominent PR role in it. While we are all uneducatedly speculating as to what might have happened - Seems plausible to me the dodgers said β€œwait a week to let anyone know,” then they saw the likes of WSD, Richard roeper and Peggy kuszinskis son for crying out loud tweet about this. They got pissed and backed out

    before the season started I was hoping there would be a chance bleday would be available in round 2, but it hes played himself into a top 10 or top 15 pick it seems like. Bryant certainly is the natural comp for Vaughn - although bryant turned himself into a valuable piece as a defender and baserunner, something vaughn likely won't do.

    Vaughn with 2 more HR today. Up to 7 on the year already. Tanking matters. And it matters to be number 1. Not number 3. The data supports that (even if Vaughn is available at 3 still - which he still could be)

    3/3 vs Cubs, 2pm

    probably gonna be in the conversation for 1/1 again next year. which is fine. we still desperately need talent since its clear we cant attract top talent via FA

    Can’t pick Vaughn. We have yonder there. Ok obviously kidding. Vaughn and rutschman clearly top college players. I don’t know much about the HS guys (nor can anyone who isn’t a National scout) but seemed like a few months ago Witt was being talked about as 1-1. Obviously one of those three will be there. these drafts show you just how important each draft spot is, and how much better it is to pick 1 or 2 than 3 or 4. Tanking matters
