    It can't be understated about how much of a gamechanger it would be if he arrived this year. A kid with MVP upside being added to this lineup would be an embarrassment of riches.

    I did not watch the game too closely last night as I was trying to relieve some stress with some video games, which doesn't help since I fucking suck now at like every multiplayer there is... anyway

    • That swing by Busch was sure fucking sweet and he made some loud contact on the at double. The dude also seemed to be moving much better than I anticipated. This kid is going to be one to watch.
    • James Outman is one of those guys on nobody's radar, but our people behind the scenes are apparently raving about the dude. Nice couple of catches he made last night and drove in our only run. He is going to have to really shine though as he is already kind of old for a prospect at the levels he'd be playing at.
    • Andy Pages looked good in his first AB, but yeah he ain't gonna be able to get away with the shit he pulled last night in the field. There have been a lot of comparisons to Puig with him and we saw one of the reasons why with the lackadaisical approach on that grounder to him.

    saw that play
    no excuse for that
    especially in spring training where you’re supposedly trying to impress
    he’d be on my short list of players to include in a trade

    Yeah... he is getting a lot of superstar ceiling projections and possibly the best prospect in our system. Let's tap the brakes on this one.

    perhaps
    but we’ve also seen this before
    and not just with puig
    there was once a guy in the dodgers system getting similar reviews
    he was said to possess all 5 tools...
    but he also had a poor attitude, sometimes chose not to hustle, would overthrow cutoff men, etc
    his name was raul mondesi

    not saying we give up on pages
    but he shouldn’t be untouchable either if an opportunity arose

    Bobby Miller pitched last night. Looked like he’s going to project out as a STUD. Good hard fastball and secondaries looked impressive. Hit a guy going in on a 2-0 count to start his inning but proceeds to get out of it with an inning ending DP on weak contact. Excited about this kid.

    Struggled locating his pitches tonight and got the feeling the Cubs kind of knew what was coming as they spoiled a ton of pitches. It would not surprise me if they figured out what our guys were working on and just fucked with us.

    Bauer had a nice comeback after letting two guys on

    Granted it was against the SD scrubs but can’t complain

    Ineffectiveness, injuries and battling for a spot on a deep roster.....not looking good for him.

    Joe Kelly seems to be hurt or something. Looks like they're going to play it real slow with some relievers, including Kelly/Morrow/Nelson which makes sense. Other guys can handle the beginning of the year, get at least 2 of those guys right and your bullpen is deep

    Offense seems about as locked in as can be. Bench will prob be McKinstry/Neuse/Taylor/Rios with Beaty/Peters/Davidson right behind
