    Gents, I don't know if this has been brought up before, but our very own Dominique Dunne was referenced on a Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning show....

    The long and the short of it is this...

    Dominique's father was a man by the name of Dominick, a fairly famous writer for Vanity Fair. His most famous piece of work was his coverage of the OJ Simpson trial, where he was in the court room every day, and was assigned to sit next to Ron Goldman's family by the presiding Judge. This was allegedly done intentionally, because Dominick was supposed to be able to show compassion and respect the privacy of the Goldman family as best as a media person could do, given how empathetic he could be since a similar senseless murder happened to his daughter a few years prior.

    Now here's the best part, this ENTIRE FUCKING THING is captured in a scene of Emmy and Golden Globe winning "The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story". They reference our little Dominique for a whole fucking scene, with the entire point of the scene being to show the impact of her death on her father, who later became this big shot journalist for the most important murder trial in American history. Dominique is really big deal in a sense, and we had no fucking clue.

    Now, what is the implication of this... How did our very own Spanky come up with this name in a drunken stupor. Is he an American History wiz? Was he a big follower of the OJ Trial? It's hard to say really, but it is suspicious....

    I'm not saying Spanky was actually the one who murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, but I'm not saying he didn't either.

    Keon Broxton projections now that ZiPS is out:

    ZiPS = 216/297/408
    Steamer = 222/304/379

    Perfect time to buy cheap (although not from me). Those sad, antiquated projection systems don't even consider his elite exit velo.

    I think Steamer does. Not 100% sure on that though.

    3 of the shrewdest owners in this league have already inquired on him down low. I won't name names. I'll probably hold him just because I have so little invested in him and the payoff is substantial. He has very little trade value at the moment. I don't always talk guys up with the intention of trading them, sometimes I'm just a fan. He can marry a .200 ISO with elite BB% and ~40 SB. He's kinda like Chris Carter but trade some HR for SB and give him CF eligibility. I think his counting stats can look like peak Carlos Gomez.

    Let's change the topic and talk about Top 50 prospect Francisco Mejia.

    Best C prospect in the game.

    But, how much are catching prospects even worth? Might be less bankable than arms.

    I can't believe the lack of love Min is getting for his post. Has DD jumped the shark?

    Did you learn nothing from Gary Sanchez? C prospects that pan out are the Holy Grail. Most sites have Alfaro above Mejia, but I'm with you.

    Yuck, how can anyone like Alfaro more? Seems objectively wrong

    I'd never seen Poltergeist until the other week and when her name came up in the intro credits it was a bit of a trip.

    He has an incredible arm and plus power. His approach is... questionable. However, he has been an above average hitter at every level. Scouts also routinely say that his raw power is better than he's shown in games. Actually his profile is a lot like Sanchez before he broke out.

    Alfaro AA line (167 games) - .273/.324/.449
    Sanchez AA line (191 games) - .265/.335/.424

    Catcher development is non-linear, as they say. You can't teach tools tho.

    I was just going to make that comparison, also prospect fatigue with catcher prospects probably gets even more pronounced.
