    No 2020 silly.

    Pitching is different. As long as the stuff is there, if the guy can harness it they can be good.

    It would be one thing if these guys were hitting .220-.240 in AA, but they're hovering around or significantly below Mendoza. That goes well beyond normal prospect growing pains. Even Gonzalez hitting .227 is concerning because he's 24.

    Lopey has been fine after his first 3 starts. Go look at his game log. His first 3 starts were bad, as was the one vs. Boston where he had to take one for the team with a depleted bullpen. He was done after 5 innings in that game, and Ricky threw him out there for the 6th and left him out there to die because the bullpen was taxed.

    Glad you admit it.

    McCann Extension

    I'd wait until next Memorial Day. They control McCann for another season, so no reason to jump into anything.

    Colome has a really good chance too. Moncada won't make it because of Bregman and Devers. Boston guys are a shoe in.

    I said zero or 1 but I'm shocked about the last two days. I don't think the Sox can catch the Twins but I do think they can finish 2nd with around 81 wins.

    I agree with this, but if he allows a baserunner, pull him.

    This. So much this. His change and slider are great pitches as well and his curve has morphed from bad to OK.

    What do you guys think, give him a shot to finish?
  12. Jack Parkman

    Yeah.

    No kidding. If Giolito keeps pitching well, he's going to start getting calls on the fringes and his K rate is going to skyrocket.

    Moncada screwed by the Ump again.

    They should send him to Uranus. You did the joke wrong. When launching a shitty player into outer space, the correct planet is always Uranus.

    Me too. Castillo should get Covey and Banuelos.

    I think it is time to DFA Castillo and Alonso and bring up Collins and Palka.

    Ehem. Yes it feels great.

    Yeah defense and pitch sequencing outweigh offense at that position in the post-steroid era. You're not going to have Mike Piazza types hanging around all that much. Those guys are rare.

    I think McCann has a lot to do with it. A catcher who calls a great game and has the confidence of the staff is invaluable. It was an incredibly underrated part of AJP's game.
