    If Connor Greene can keep the walks under control that would be great

    Grant he's been throwing 100 for a decade now and nothing has changed

    Is he getting a steady diet of off speed pitches?
    I donít suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

    Maybe. I haven't watched.

    Hasn't had an XHB since he homered twice on opening day. His profile hasn't changed so I'm not concerned. He could go on a tear over the next 4-5 days and his numbers would be back up to normal.

    Tellez takes a while to adjust. He was hitting .164 in April of last season in AA before going on a tear.

    Granted this is a little bit different. He still managed a .345 OBP in April meaning he was still walking quite a bit last season. Right now he's sitting at a .244 OBP. I'm not too concerned though. I'm sure he'll be fine.

    DSJ continues to mash.
    Tellez dropped in the order
    Jose Fernandez 2.0 continues to dominant (anyone have any reports on him? what's changed?)
    Mayza seems to have turned it around.
    Bradley Jones played 2nd base last night? I thought he was a 1st baseman?

    Never been a huge fan but he started to win me over last year. Seems to be a hard worker, let's see if he can adjust.
    Other than that, the farm doesn't seem to be in too bad of shape. A lot of lower levels, but pretty exciting to follow right now.

    If find it incredibly exciting to follow the farm system (through box scores only). It kind of reminds me of when I was 12 years old (before streaming, before lots of non-blue jay games were on tv, heck, before all the jays games were even televised). I can't thank King enough for doing these reports (as I probably wouldn't bother looking up the box scores on my own otherwise).

    While the big team is shitting the bed, some of the prospects are off to a great start. Bo and Brad Jones are 1st and 2nd in BA in low A, Jansen 2nd in High A, Alford leading the league in AA and Dwight Smith having a good year in Buffalo. Looks like there is some hope for the future.

    I know the sample size is stupidly small, ~130 PA, but man Bichette's line is silly.

    .419/.512/.571 23:13 K:BB across two levels as an 18/19 year old

    Stilson going 4k's without a walk should have got him honourable mention in the three stars.

    Gurriel coming out of the game I assume was a planned thing?
