Pretty sure the guy at the end of the clip was Marlins man and it sounds like he might've bought it.

Mattingly keeps, making pitching changes and they keep backfiring. laugh.gif

Horrible management of a **** prone bullpen.

Cano was my favorite player, still mad about him leaving but that was a huge payday. I don't think he went there expecting mad thick Dominican broads and winning crazy games. He got his huge check and is on cruise control for the rest of his career. He'll probably be in DR, NY and FL the entire offseason making up for all the bad ******* he missed during the season.

It's not even that. He lobbied for Cruz, he is bros with King Felix, he expected a winner. But HE is aging, bat speed is slowing down, k rate is sky high, etc.

He's basically rapidly aging before our eyes.

Seattle will age anybody quick....who's really surprised by his drop off?

Sale's slider is filthy

What's happening to Cano? There's no way he's aging that quickly.

Grandy 7 k's in three games at Petco Park mean.gif

Joc Pederson - another homer? oh geez

Gallo - second homer (upper deck again)

Tanaka is such a beast when he has his velocity

Anibal Sanchez has been pitching terrible this year

i did a piece on cano. his contact% is down by 5%. his contact% on pitches down and in is down around 10% from last year. his zone contact% is down 5%. his groundball rates are up. his walks are down 5%, k's up 5%. going the opposite way about 5-7% less than he usually does. going up the middle more. my theory is either his bat speed is declining, he's getting old and losing strength (incapable of sitting back and driving the ball), or he has something going on with his eyes because he clearly isn't seeing the ball well. i wouldnt want him on my team with these issues in year 2 of a 10 year deal.

Me neither. I don't want Cano on our team.

I was really surprised to see his terrible numbers. I expect to see him putting up better numbers than last season. I thought acquiring Cruz would be good for Cano so Cruz takes pressure off Cano. Roberto Alomar put up better numbers when he was Cano's age.

Seattle is a bad fit but you gotta take the money when it's there
post #37906 of 77538
what really worries me is the contact numbers and the BB and K%. one thing if a guy is in a slump, but he's obviously just not seeing the ball well at all.
post #37907 of 77538
Damn, if those numbers and analytics are real. I thought Cano would have a solid 5 years, 6 was the max. He's a thick guy and in his early 30s so I was hoping the Yankees wouldn't over pay him. I didn't think he would stay in Seattle more than 3-4 years.
post #37908 of 77538
he had a god awful slump in 2008 but a bad slump at that age vs today is a different story. maybe he recovers but i dont think hell ever be an elite 2nd baseman again.

When clicking on that video, I was ready to make a joke about the painting sucking, but it's pretty sick laugh.gifpimp.gif

Reid Ryan just cited millennials as a reason for the changes the Astros are making to the OF area.

Dude must be having conversations with Vince McMahon.
post #37919 of 77538

Surprised/pleased to see Rendon back.  Thought they'd give him a little more time but I guess the fact that he played both games during the doubleheader was enough.

Jew looks like Archie Bradley is on the DL with your favorite injury, inflamed ERA.
