I get it.  I am someone who believes you cannot teach effort.  Because of that I don't think you can "unteach" effort in a way.  I still play sports and I just naturally play balls to the wall.  I just don't think it's in some peoples blood no matter the stage (ST or world series).  But yes, I am with you, let's not get hurt in ST.

Trying to not overreact to Moncada striking out in 3/4 of his ABs so far....

I like you Jack, but things like this are absolutely wild. Funny, but wild.

I get your point, and he should STOP SLIDING HEAD FIRST PERIOD (this makes me crazy), but you're not going to take that competitiveness out of him right now. He's going to bust it right now as a young guy. He hit that and his brain just yelled triple. The sliding thing needs to stop though, for everyone. It won't happen though. Jammed wrists, thumbs... had my hands stomped on by a metal spike. Nothing good comes of it.

And replay makes sliding feet first even harder when coming in at full speed because they'll call you out if you pop off for .01 seconds. Really dumb of baseball.

I agree and here's how you solve it: 1K fine into the kangeroo court for anybody that slides head first in spring games.  At the end of spring if Robert has to buy 10K in drinks and steaks at the finest steakhouse in Scottsdale I think he'll reconsider his slides.

Still a far cry from the 99-101 (t102) he regularly hit in the past, but it's great to see him out there and healthy.

Is this supposed to be good news on his velocity?

I'd say being at 97 without max effort is a good report. He may never sit 100 like chapman again, but his slider is real good and his velocity will play fine at 97-99 I think.
