Last year, the Braves had many on the list. Acuna was the #1 prospect. He is doing pretty well in the majors. They still have 4 among the top 45.
I don't like giving up prospects for veterans, especially those with large contracts. What in the world made the Mets' new GM (a former agent) trade two of our top prospects for Robinson Cano and a closer?! The two young prospects we gave up are among the top 100 (#24 Kelenic and #67 Dunn). I would learn later that our GM was Cano's agent.
That sounds like what I say about Mets acquisitions. High-priced free agents from other teams often disappoint. That is why I prefer going with young, home-grown players. They seem to be more hungry and play better. It seems like when star players move on to other teams, they disappoint. I think Harper and Machado have not performed as well as was expected for $30 million+/year. But Mike Trout is still doing well with the Angels after signing that big contract.
I wonder what @Jay Kirk is thinking. He loves his Cardinals and is usually optimistic. This must be difficult for him to watch.
Is there a video of this we can watch?
I really want something with Ebron on it but going to wait and see if he stays here. I think I am going to get something with Moore’s number on it like a sweatshirt
I didn't see a topic for this. If there is one, please feel free to merge.
On Tuesday, the NFL Network had their AFC South day, which aside from Darius Leonard being featured on Total Access, included the 30 minute season reviews for all 4 AFC South teams.
I've watched a couple times already and it's got me stoked for the next season. This episode really seemed to highlight Ebron and I can't say enough about how much love he shows for this team. My son has outgrown his size 2T Hilton jersey, and I think Ebron might be the next one I buy for him. Either that or Leonard, who is understandably featured a lot in this episode as well.
Last year was a hell of a thrill ride. I think, partially, because the expectations vs the reality was so different in a positive way. This year should be just as thrilling, but only if we can keep the enthusiasm with the higher expectations. I, for one, am PUMPED!
