    Seems like an inexact science to me, which is why I never understood setting an exact number of innings as a limit for the season. Are 7 innings where the pitcher throws 90 pitches the same as 7 innings where the pitcher throws 115 pitches? Should we be comparing a 6’6” 245 lb frame to a 6’1” 185 lb frame for previously established precedent? There are so many factors that make each situation unique imo.

    Agree here.  If you just assume everybody is a little different, then I wish it was just as simple as Garrett letting the team know if he’s feeling general fatigue.  Keep going until he feels it.  

    But that’s inexact as well because a player may be tempted to push themselves for personal goals and wealth.  

  2. I’m not sure being concerned about Thorpe’s fastball is an opinion.  It’s his whole thing.  He has a slower fastball- that’s his whole write up.  

    I don’t know what I’m exactly trying to say here, but like, there isn’t a person on earth who doesn’t see the MPH of his fastball and note it.  

    There isn’t a camp of people unconcerned about his slow fastball and then a camp of people who are concerned.  Everyone knows about it.

    I thought the advantage of promoting Getz to GM was that he wouldn’t need an entire year to assess the state of the team, like an outside hire would have?


    So many adds on the site and you’re the last post, so for a second I actually thought wow an add for clown shoes seems so appropriate for this thread

    Removing Kopech won't make much of a difference, but if you add DeJong, Pham, Flexen, Wilson, Banks, Clevinger, Crochet, Robert, Jimenez, and Moncada all together, you'd have to expect closer to a 15-25% winning percentage.

    Obviously, Robert and Crochet might not be matches right now (value wise), and Moncada and Jimenez could be stuck with the team and vice versa, but yikes.


    Honestly don't even have any idea what the remaining rotation would look like.

    I guess Thorpe, Nastrini, Cannon, probably Clevinger...then whoever they decide to go with from the Barons' remaining list of guys, other than Schultz.

    Which means Berroa, Inciarte, Bush, Eder, Adams, etc.

    Nice post

  5. I feel like we’ve probably been near the bottom of this category for a really long time.  

    I can’t count the time Abreu’s dumbass couldn’t even tell he was being pitched around.  Maybe every single time it was happening?

    I don't think they will shut him down nor pitch him in relief but there has to be at least 1 or 2, maybe 3 phantom 15-Day IL stints coming, right?

    Man who knows.  I wish it was as simple as waiting until Crochet says he’s feeling fatigue.  Let the big dog eat til he’s full

    Keener had a good start 5.2 2H 0R 0ER 3bb 9K. Sox have tremendous pitching depth. What a difference a couple of years makes.

    It’s insane.  I don’t know half these guys but the stat lines people are posting don’t lie

    Would be nice if Taylor becomes something 

    This might be one of my more optimist opinions of our farm in the last 20 years.  Mostly before was completely irrational optimism, but this feels different.  Getz might get the nickname Getzy Big Balls soon

    Quero hits 6th HR tonite. Montgomery 1-2, homer and 2 walks. Thorpe 5.2 of shut out pitching e.r.a.1.01

    I don’t give a s%*# what anyone says…LuBob has always been, and will always be a cool nickname for Luis Robert. It’s fun. 


    The La Pantera thing reminds me of Hawk at the end of his days trying to force some nicknames for Abreu.  Has the same cringe feel to me.  

    LuBob flies out like home cookin

    I'm not concerned yet, but there's reason to not be sold on him. I'm just not sold. It's still early. 

    Nobody is sold.  He’s in the minor leagues still.

    Getz should also go.  His off season moves have been really bad.  He just brought a bunch of older journeymen.  The team is much worse than last year so far.  

    He knew he brought in old journeymen though.  

    I think the why is more interesting than the what.
