    Hech couldn't hit anything. Arencibia drew few walks and struck out at every level despite being college-aged.

    I've been following prospects for a long time now. I know that this is low minors, I'm not stupid. I'm also not blind enough to not realize that we're looking at a kid hitting .400+ with power all over the field and almost zero strikeouts...as a middle infielder. I saw him in that spring training game get jammed (or what looked like it) and he inside-outed the ball all the way off the wall in right-center. And that is the thing: he's not slapping the ball around and hitting .400 because he's outrunning poor defending on squibblers; he's been lacing balls going all the way back to last season.

    One time in 2014 I won 5k in a day in poker, does that mean I'll win 5k every day? No

    But it's more likely that you'll win 5k in poker the next day than someone who didn't

    Bichette can wait, let's get the Anthony Alford hype train moving. Guy is having an obscenely good year so far.

    They wanted him to get some work in catching, so rather than putting him on the Dunedin team DL, they just assigned him to Vancouver. He caught today in extended spring and you can read his progress in my post ( news from Dunedin) They will re-assign him when Dunedin returns home this coming week. Expect him to catch some games next week for Dunedin Jays.

    He has been fantastic to start the year. Maybe he is finally fully healthy and everything is coming into focus for him
    See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!

    That would be a monster. I'd gladly take that. In his prime, with plate discipline, Jones could have been a 6+ WAR player. He was between 4-5, consistently, without it.
