Tatis Jr. makes Padres opening day roster

Recommended Posts

This is going to backfire. He had a 28% k-rate at AA. Yeah, yeah, he was 19. He's going to get destroyed in MLB for the time being (and in my opinion, for the future too).

Shocker.I'll be surprised if he does well. Seems like a year too early .

They rushed him to AA too but he held his own. Now this on the other hand is a whole different animal. Kid is really good though so it wouldn't shock me if he held his own in the show too.

I'm just surprised they would burn a year (unless Preller decides to do what we did with Eloy).

I guess we will all get to quickly see what the left side of our infield could have been.

Our left side of the infield looks pretty good to me.  Look for both guys to make major strides.

So why do we have 2 Tatis threads and no Eloy threads ? I know we just had a long one because of the contract but yeesh . Let's love our current prospects , the ones who aren't injured anyway .

Eh, I’ll take the Padres version.

Why wouldn't they at least wait a few weeks to not waste an extra year of control?

Yeah, pretty crazy.  I don’t get it either.

Yeah, I'll take the Padres version with Moncada at 2B. 

And I'm going to guess both sides are confident that they can work out an extension.

Some teams suddenly care about having the best 25 guys on the roster, service time be damned. There were a few other guys that made the majors this week in similar situations.

Yeah, Alonso on the Mets as well. 

I wonder if the teams expect to send them down for a few weeks at some point or if they believe they'll sign Eloy like extensions. Or maybe they just aren't worried about control 6 years from now, considering the new CBA might change the rules.

If something about service time/free agency changes in the new CBA, I would assume any player already in the MLB would be grandfathered in the old way.

Alonso is almost 25. Not really the same thing. Don't think the mets were worried about having him for his age 32 seasons. Mets are trying to win a division.

Has it been mentioned Tatis/Shields trade may ultimately be deemed the worst in Chicago baseball history? Currently it's Broglio/Lou Brock.

The White Sox aren't popular enough.
