  1. He's hurt. Probably done for the college season.
  2. I'm glad the Sox didn't draft Singer, but I'll be really rooting for the kind now.
  3. I wouldn't be surprised to see Singer fall a bit more. Happy with the pick.
  4. In general I'd be OK if they just stopped drafting arms in the 1st round period.
  5. I keep expecting to open the box scores and see an inning pitched from Hansen somewhere. Dude's been throwing bullpen sessions for a month, no? Might as well have him throw some live innings.
  6. All things considered you have to give Hostetler some props for 16/17 drafts. He gets a pass on Burger as no-one could have seen that coming, but I feel really good about a lot of the arms added from these last two drafts. My only complaint is if we're going to take advanced college players we need to challenge them faster. I don't think there's a lot of value in guys like Gonzalez hitting the crap out of the ball in low-A ball or Henzman throwing a billion ground balls a start. We have way to much dead weight in AA/AAA where we could just push bodies up that may have some future value.
  7. After watching a bit of Singer today I'm on the anyone but Singer bandwagon. I'll be happy with any of the 3 big collage bats.
  8. Just noticed between the three of them, 0 walks.

  10. After reading all the futuresox pieces I can't tell who i want anymore in round 1, so I'm just going to root for Beer in round 2. Just give me two solid collage bats with 1 & 2 and I'll be satisfied.
  11. Anthony Villa through 100+ PAs is somehow putting up a near .500 BABIP. That's just crazy. That dude needs to pick my lotto numbers.
  12. What's the deal with A.J Puckett? Haven't heard anything in a while on him.
  13. My original post was on May 4th, when Rutherford had exactly 0 home runs. While it's nice to see him show some pop I'm still not a believer.
  14. In my defense when I made that comment he had not hit a single HR this year. Maybe he saw me talking shit and decided to prove me wrong.
  15. I've just never really seen him turn on a pitch and launch. I've watched a decent amount of his ABs and it's a lot of ground ball singles or low lying line drives. His physical appearance might play a part, he's a god damn twig.
  16. Madrigal's contact rate is insane. It's hard to pass on a kid that never strikes out.
  17. It would be nice to see Eloy take a few more walks. He might be a little too good at making hard contact.
  18. In the last couple of weeks it looks like both Call and Fisher regained some prospect shine. Call now spots a .878 OPS with a very respectable 15.3% BB% / 19.1% K%. Fisher is at .755 OPS with a lot of room for improvement on a 8.7% BB% / 32.5% K%. If Fisher can cut the K-rate down into the low 20s he'd probably be sitting on a .850+ OPS.
  19. Guerrero is not struggling. Just having terrible luck. Coming into today he was sporting a 10.81 K/9, 2.39 BB/9, 0.34 HR/9, .420 BABIP, 51.7% LOB%, 27.8% LD%, 2.26 FIP. This is probably as good of 6 starts as he's ever had in his career, but it seems like just about everything being hit in play is finding a hole and at the worst possible times (high line drive rate and LOB%)
  20. Blake Battenfield had himself a day. 8 IP, 3 H, 0 BB, 10 SO. ERA down to 1.34, he came into the day with a .209 BABIP and a 89.9% LOB%, so he's been fairly lucky. But still good to see a guy put up numbers.
  21. 1A) Kopech 1B) Hansen 3) Cease 4) Dunning 5) Stephens 6) Guerrero 7) Henzman 08) Adams 9) Puckett 10) Clarkin Flores/Lambert/McClure not far behind I don't think the gap between Kopech and Hansen is that wide. I still have some doubts on Kopech's and Cease's command at the big league level. Clarkin is hanging on by a thread.
  22. Let's not forget the rather long list of depth we have across the entire org in terms of starting pitching. There's a good chance someone outside the blue chip list sticks in the rotation. I was hoping Guerrero/Stephens would be pitching in Charlotte by now with a plan to get them some major league starts before guys like Kopech/Hansen/Dunning are ready for the show. I wouldn't rush any of the blue chip guys, but start throwing the second tier guys to the sharks to see if they can swim.
  23. Not a lot of love for Stephens or Guerrero but both are off to great starts again. Stephens: 8.55 K/9, 2.41 BB/9, .358 BABIP, 2.99 FIP Guerrero: 10.94 K/9, 2.39 BB/9, .420 BABIP, 2.29 FIP I like what I'm seeing from Lambert, but it's hard to make a case he's the next in line after the big 4 when Stephens/Guerrero are doing quite well a level above. There's absolutely no reason there's guys should still be in AA while we throw absolute trash out to pitch in Charlotte.
  24. I'm convinced Zavala has elite exit velocity. I've seen him just absolutely destroy baseballs.
