    Trevor Bauer Thread (Mazara Free Zone)

    Palka was terrible. I’m assuming you were just kidding about bringing him back. Pitching is always the number one priority. I could live with Rutherford. He’s a big guy so hearing that he has some power is not out of the realm of possibility. hahn hasn’t signed a good DH or right fielder since Dye showed up here. If we sign Bauer we wouldn’t need a beast in RF. I’d let Rutherford or someone like him see if they can take the position.

    Success is generally achieved when you have better players than the other team. Give me the best roster in a league and I’ll beat you 60-65% ofthe time even in an arbitrary game like baseball. In hockey I’ll beat you 80-85% of the time with a better roster. that assumes I’m not a complete idiot and know nothing about the sport I’m coaching.

    Sox pitching development

    Was looking at Bob Gibson’s stats today and his first two years were pretty bad and he started to turn it on in years three. Sox need another vet pitcher So the young guys have a few years to develop. Get another vet pitcher on a three year Contract.
  7. Yea, there was possibly a lot nobody here knew. How do we know what kind of person she was? Maybe she was harassing him and he came over to discuss and she pulled a gun on him and in a struggle she was shot? how about the guy roommate that was there? What’s his role in this? there was so much nobody here knew and to act like a sub human is pretty ridiculous.

    Dallas Keuchel leaves game with back injury

    Lopez has certainly regressed from when he got here. I remember watching a video of him pitching for the Nats and he was striking out a hoard of guys. What was weird in the video was that the scoreboard showed the nats losing like 5-0 in spite of all those SO. So maybe he was giving yp dingers in between SO. hopefully someone can get him on track with his mechanics and mental approach. It’s been done before.

    The guy that was drafted the same year as Courtney Hawkins was a first baseman. First rounder I think.

    Dane Dunning - Expectations now and going forward

    Dunning can get his fastball up to 95 when he wants to. He doesn’t to do it as every pitch he throws moves including his FB. If he threw 95 all the time his fastball might be straighter and get hit. collins used to play against dunning in college he told the story of him and his teammates in the dugout trying to guess which pitch dunning was going to throw and where and they were wrong most of the time. He just pounds the glove with good to great stuff.
