The Phillies bullpen is full of incompetent, underachieving dildos.

I'm going to start talking about the Indians or the Astros because it's a team I don't see in here much.

Astros are going to rebound in the second half and take a wild card, count on it. Chris Snyder will turn into the flash and steal 20 bases the rest of the year.

Minus Chooch, Pierre, and Rollins as of late, agreed. Agreed 100%.

Rumor has it that Hamels might be shopped. I would love to see him come to the Rangers. We could use him.

Altuve has the highest OBP of anyone on the Astros, at .344


God that's terrible.


Edit: Rangers need anything?

Another solid starter. We have Lewis, Harrison, Darvish, Holland, Oswalt, Feldman, and Feliz. Lewis, Harrison, and Darvish have been solid. Holland has been pretty decent at times but nothing like the last half of last season. Feldman is 2-6. Feliz was okay but is still hurt and I think he belongs in the pen. Oswalt gave up 11 last start and I'm not sure what we will get out of him.

I think it'd be just hilarious if the Rangers make it to the WS and lose again.

Tyler Skaggs taken out of a Reno(AAA) game, he was solid through 3 with 42 pitches. They've been doing this a few times already with other guys after only 50 pitches or so.

Not sure what this rotation is going to look like post all star break. Something's got to change if you get swept by the Padres and have lost six straight now. Probably make a big trade as they have a few guys in AAA that are mashing the ball but have no place in the majors for Arizona. Not sure exactly what the team needs, it changes every week it seems.

Damnit, someone else be an Arizona fan so I feel like I'm not talking to myself every time.

I need to wait until they update, it was just a rain delay. Derp.

I pay way too much attention to this ****. I should apply for a job. I'll be a hot dog vendor who also scouts player stats.

Giants signed that international prospect on the 2nd or whatever the date was. Supposedly he's fast. Like faster than any other prospect.

Scouts were clearly there to look at Gustavo Cabrera in game action. One thing they got to see was his speed. Cabrera walked twice and was also inserted into the game once as a pinch runner for a player who’d been hit by a pitch. He stole 5 bases, most of the “no contest” variety, and was clearly going to take any opportunity he got.
Quote:
The day began with several players running the 60-yard dash. These times were all recorded on a hand-held stopwatch:
6.34- OF Gustavo Cabrera
6.72- MIF Yancarlos Baez
6.78- MIF Lugo Octavis
6.87- MIF Felix Suarez
6.88- OF Jose Pujols
6.94- MIF Richard Urena
6.94- OF Natanael Delgado
7.09- OF Ronny Carvajal
The 6.34 time Cabrera posted is exceptional. Seeing it understandably will leave many skeptical. Let me first add that I checked with two other scouts standing nearby, one of whom had the exact same time, the other was within several one-hundreths of a second. Cabrera did begin the 60 running with his shoulders square, while players who run the 60 yard dash at a Perfect Game showcase are required to begin turned sideways, simulating running from first to second on a stolen base. Even if you factor that advantage in and adjust his time as high as a 6.50, that is still incredibly rare for a 16 year old player. It comes as no surprise that Cabrera steals bases during games at will. After watching the workouts over the past few days my curiousity finally got the best of me, and having already taken thorough notes on the defensive actions of the players, I grabbed my radar gun and went behind the fence on the left field foul line to get throwing velocities of the outfielders on throws to third base. The two that stood out the most were Gustavo Cabrera (90) and Luis Barrera (89). It should also be noted that many US players attending a showcase throw for the radar gun rather than simulating actual game action, and while this is accounted for in the scouting notes and reflected in their overall evaluation, the raw workout numbers are often skewed higher as a result. These players were not throwing for the radar gun, they were their legitimate game throws.

yeah it doesn't mean much but giants dont have any real interesting prospects outside of Crick, Blackburn, and Duvall. Maybe in 4 years he'll be our version of Trout
