2018 Futures Game

Recommended Posts

Looking at that World lineup I went from excitement to sorrow in like two seconds.  Regardless, pretty cool that Basabe is leading off and it shows just how good of a year he has had.

There are 3 guys in starting lineup Sox could have easily obtained if a few things went their way (Luzardo was supposed to be in DRob trade with Nats, Tatis Jr. and then Adell or Hiura if they slipped one spot in the draft.

How many Burgers are Adell and Hiura worth at this point?

Adell looks to be a future superstar. For as raw as he was supposed to be, it's impressive to see how well he's doing.

Basabe just hit a homerun off Hunter Greene in the futures game off a 102 mph fastball.

that was pretty sweet...wasn't a cheapy either.

Swing reminds me a little of Willie Harris

Where is Cease? 

He must be coming into the game in the 9th.  It would seem pretty shitty not to use him after he skipped a scheduled start.

Yeah, after he wasn't in early, I figured they were going to use him to close potentially.

The Taylor Trammell triple that he thought was a homer was really funny, and his reaction and interview after made me a fan. Hope he’s a good big leaguer.

Basabe looked good in center field; good throw to get out Lowe at 2B and to hit that homer off a 102 mph fastball was a bit special!

Didn't see the end of the game, was Cease good in his short cameo appearance?

Read he was consistently at 97-98 that inning...let’s hope he can sustain better than Giolito.

Yeah, he was 98 pretty easily and he didn't even really have time to get up to top speed because he only threw 8 pitches and a decent number were curves.
