  1. QUOTE (wrathofhahn @ Apr 1, 2018 -> 08:14 PM) Kahnle and Drob are not off to good starts. 6ER in 4IP. Robertson always ran hot and cold can’t really be upset about him being gone. Kahnle always looked like a one year wonder but I don’t know if he’ll ever be closer material. Eaton is red hot to start this season.

    Phew that inning could’ve gotten really bad fast. Looked a little out of sync with mechanics that inning.

    How Close is Dylan Cease

    I don't think you can extrapolate much from the low minors with Hansen. I wouldn't put too much emphasis on good stats below AA. You always want to see it but I don't know if it's all that predictive. A lot of players at those levels won't ever see the majors or even high minors. With his cup of coffee in AA and spring training this year he belongs in AA the whole season possibly with a late season promotion to AAA unless he's dominating the competition. In that case probably AAA a few months in and a late season call up.

    Hard to not get excited about this offense and how it is going to look in a year with how bad it has been for so long. And the thought we could potentially add Machado on top of Eloy and Robert. In no particular batting order. 2B - Moncada SS - Anderson 3B - Machado 1B - Abreu DH - Davidson RF - Eloy CF - Robert LF - Avi C - Castillo/Zavala or Collins Bench Delmonico Engel Sanchez L Garcia That lineup looks so stacked and deep.

    Anderson scores from 1st on a single? Lol awesome

    Davidson needs to play 3B again soon. Imagine adding Eloy to this lineup for Sanchez and Robert for Engel. Crazy. Don't know if Zavala or Collins would be upgrades on Castillo (probably not). Sanchez, Leury, and Engel make this team so versatile off the bench too.

    QUOTE (chw42 @ Mar 29, 2018 -> 04:00 PM) Shields in line for the win. Never thought this would happen after that first inning. Amazingly he has held it together with his 88 mph fastball. But KC's offense is pretty bad.

    This team is going to be beastly once we get everyone up. 2019 and 2020 should be really fun.

    If Shields lets anyone to or past 2nd base get someone up

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Mar 29, 2018 -> 03:54 PM) It is raining and 45 degrees in one of the better pitcher’s parks in baseball, and there are 6 long balls. Looks like the balls are juiced this year. Heh, whatever you say. I'm not complaining.

    QUOTE (bmags @ Mar 29, 2018 -> 03:12 PM) Just gonna throw this out there, i'm not sure losing the first four innings of opening day with james shields on the mound in kansas city is a doomsday indicator. Doesn't change the fact he's a gas can and needs to go. As many have been saying since he was acquired. KC's offense is not even good.

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Mar 29, 2018 -> 02:42 PM) I think Rodon first. What is his ETA? I had pretty much written him off until mid season, but hopefully we don't have to endure that much of Shields.

    QUOTE (chitownsportsfan @ Mar 29, 2018 -> 02:38 PM) he's not going to do anything but lose games and tax the pen. Cut bait on this guy. He f***ing sucks. Literally could not do worse giving the starts to Dylan Covey. Santiago should end up in the rotation next unless they bring Kopech up early.

    **2018 Opening Day Game Thread**

    Never knew what they saw in this gas can. It's not like this was the only guy they could've signed or traded for at the time. He was total garbage then too.

    James Shields folks. The guy who gave up the home run to Bartolo Colon right before we traded a future all-star for him.

    How Close is Dylan Cease

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Mar 29, 2018 -> 07:41 AM) Hansen has already hit AA. There are guys who go straight from AA to the majors, but even if he spends half a season at AA, two months at AAA, and September call up... that isn't crazy at all. It’s obvious from the spring he’s not ready. Kopech is going to end up spending 1.5 seasons between AA and AAA and he’s shown much more. I’m not sure what you have seen from Hansen over the last month that would make you think he is going to be pushed faster than Kopech.

    How Close is Dylan Cease

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Mar 28, 2018 -> 02:25 PM) Hansen has an outside chance of being in Chicago at some point this year. Neither Cease or Dunning really do. Re: Hansen - With how slow they have brought along everyone else I highly doubt he sees the majors before 2019 season probably as a mid season call up. I’d like to see him duplicate his previous effort but this time in the high minors for this entire season he doesn’t look ready for the majors yet. I think we are looking at Kopech mid season ‘18, Cease and Hansen mid season ‘19. Dunning TBA could be mid season ‘19 or ‘20. Lopez probably goes to the bullpen in ‘20 if he can’t stick as a starter. I think Rodon gets traded once he puts together a healthy half season - maybe next offseason. If they think Hansen is ready going into the ‘19 season that will probably happen. Fulmer is a full time reliever by ‘19 if he can’t stick in this year’s rotation.

    1 surprise, 1 disappointment, 1 dark horse

    Lopez to me is the question mark not sure if it’s conditioning or focus later in games or what. Maybe a lack of conditioning affects his focus later in starts which is flattening out his pitches. That’s my guess but could be wrong. Needs another pitch or two to succeed long term as a starter.
