He pitched 4 innings and only gave up 1 run.

 

I read he was having a little trouble controlling the fastball and he hit two batters against Rangers. He only gave up one run in four innings so I’ll take it!

Spring training half over , any youngsters showing promise for your respective teams you had not counted on before camp began ?

after being shut down for a short time, Sonny Gray of the Reds oitched 2 games. 2 innings of shutout ball and 3 perfect innings the next. Not sure how many major league hitters he faced.Last I checked Nick Sensel ws doing pretty good. I think the Reds really hope he can play center field.

There are a few good pitchers out there who have not gained total command of the fastball. That will come the more they pitch.

I watched rhe Reds and Indians today. Nick Senzel, last years #4 overall prodpect is becoming a center fielder. Reports are good. However, today, he was calling for a ball, playing in CF, and had to drift over maybe 8 steps.  Puig, playing right, comes charging over like his hair was on fire, calling enzel off and dropping the ball. I see Puig doing a lot of this, but my main concern was Puig fatally running over Senzel.:funny:

 

Puig also made a useless throw home, allowing a runner to advance from first to second.  Luis Castillo was pitching and looked pretty irritated about loosing the possibility of an infield DP.

That's a bit scary. Let's hope there was a lesson learned and this does not happen again. 

 

I don't know what to think of the Mets. I will wait until the regular season starts to see what to expect the rest of the year.

 

Baseball is almost here. It could not come soon enough.

Crazy money for someone that has only been to the playoffs once. I get he is great though.

 

I like him a lot but $430 million is too much for any player. :thmdown: The Angels give out tons of money. They signed Pujols to ridiculous money. They also have Ohtani, the player who is a starting pitcher who also plays in the field. What is he worth? (Shaking my head)

 

The Angels owner spends money like the late George Steinbrenner did. But at least the Yankees won championships. The Angels won a World Series a while back but that was before they were signing expensive players like this. Let's see what happens.

Cardinals complete a steal in my opinion . From all sources Paul Goldshmidt signed a 5 year ext with Cards for 130 mil . Love it ! Press conference tomorrow. :yahoo:Then Houston with the Colts been a great beginning to the weekend.

 

I agree, Jay. I read about the extension earlier this week and thought "The Cardinals always do things the right way." They did not overpay like the Padres, Phillies and Angel's did. I loved it. Mets fans on the Mets blog are tired of me bringing up Goldy. Lol.

Ichiro is the greatest hitter of all-time, screw Pete Rose :sarcasm:. Ichiro 1st ballot easily. Yeah I can't wait for Thursday. 

I don't think Rose was ever the greatest hitter. And he is my all time favorite player. Just not on my list of favorite people.  Williams in my opinion was the grestest hitter.  He lost several prime seasons due to 2 wars. Imagine his counting stats if he had played them . Staggering. Ichiro isn't too far behind him though

When I said screw Pete Rose, I was actually being sarcastic because off the field he did some shady stuff. Ted Williams definitely has an argument to being the greatest hitter ever.

I am not sure why, it could be they just have a ton of depth as of now. Better players to fill his role.

 

How do you feel about this year's Cubs team? Is there an area of the team that you are concerned about? How has Yu looked?

The starting Pitching staff has some age to it, so I am concerned there. We have no legit closer either as in a Chapman type. Yu has looked good so far. I see the Cubs as a playoff team, the batting lineup has a lot of talent.

Any reason given? Wasn't he a starter or platoon player last year?

They want him to work on making contact. His 2nd half last year and now spring he's hitting under .200. They did this with Schwarber too so that hope is it will clear his mind and get him back to understanding. Also to give him some consistent time

    • I think even if we lose tomorrow, our chances of making of the playoffs are still around 50%. I have looked at the other teams schedules is why. We need to beat the Raiders and Pats regardless that is what it is going to come down too assuming we do win at Houston and at Jacks. Beating AFC teams is a gigantic key because of tie breakers, it started last week at Buffalo and we got that one. 
    • Also, when you pound the rock in the RZ, you are basically doing so to settle for a FG because you figure the FG goes a long way towards winning the game. If you need to score TDs at that point in a game (nearly every point in a game for us (how that compares to NFL averages is irrelevant), a team is going to pass the ball a lot, and then settle for the FG where they are on the field (in case you're throwing to Dulin and MAC since results prove those targets result in incompletions, LOL).   For us, its smart to not pound the rock in the RZ,  Unless your personnel is matched up like it was against an undersized Dline at BUF, where you figure that you can string together 4 to 5 to 8 yard runs by pounding the rock a lot despite having a short field.
    • We may need to lean on Wentz quite a bit to win this game. Not saying Taylor won't do some Taylor things but they are very good against the run. We signed Wentz to win games like last week and this week. Should be a good game.
    • They absolutely are on the rise. Without really looking at their respective schedules I feel that teams in the West and North will beat each other up and hand each other losses.
    • If your attention span got you bored during my long post in response, read this summary:   Ballard traded up fro JTs sprinters speed.  He did not trade up for a 6'2 230 pound rock pounder.  Results prove that when JT breaks off "Z" type of plays from getting handoffs, we win.  That is the goal when running JT in close games.  Pounding the rock is the goal when we are enough ahead so that the opponent cant come back (with our D, that's hardly ever far enough ahead).   If a HC is game planning against a specific D personnel and figures that Z type of plays are going to be minimal, he game plans a lot of short passes.  If a QB sees that Z type of running plays are not happening, he checks out of running plays because he's not looking to pound the rock at that point of a close game.   No, neither the game plan or play calling in either TEN game that resulted in a pass heavy ratio was dumb.  It was smart.  It simply was not executed well enough to win, and in the second game was put into a hole by one very bad play call on that screen pass.
