2019 Official MLB Offseason Thread vol: Mike Trout, Loan Me Some Money $

Discussion in 'Sports & Training' started by CP1708, Mar 23, 2017.

  1. Just thinking how sick the Pads's INF finna be for years to come. Hosmer, Urias, Tatis Jr., Manny across the board. Francisco Mejia can rake, I wasn't happy about parting with him for Hand. Professional hitter. Probably has to move from catcher. Then SD got the arms too, Paddack and Gore growing up while Lucchesi leads the way. Franmil has star potential also. @suavamente, I peeped you listed him as a fantasy sleeper. He's going to be the Padres's best OF for many, many years.

    Shout out to the phillies today



    heres video of it
     
  7. These takes may not age well but I stand firmly entrenched behind them, after pondering a while. I’m predicting Eloy Jimenez has a better career than Harp when it’s all said and done, same with Devers in comparison to Manny.
     
  8. I’ll give you eloy but not devers.

    Man look at dudes motion and mechanics. Nothing shocking about his lack of command at all. Dude is just jerking the ball to the plate.

    Would this count as a Phillies fan crying about Harper getting HBP?

  15. AL MVP:
    Bregman (lettuce be cereal, Trout is gonna win for the third time but I just wanna pick someone different)

    AL Cy Young:
    Bauer (especially if my Tribe trade Kluber)

    AL ROY:
    Eloy Jimenez (this my favorite award to predict; everyone will pick Vlad Jr. but the oblique strain will slow down Guerrero train)

    In contention, I also like Luzardo, Josh James (even though he won't start the season as Houston's #5) and Kikuchi.

    AL MOY:
    Rocco Baldelli (obviously don't want it to happen but got the Twins winning the AL Central in Rocco's first year)

    NL MVP:
    Kris Bryant (his shoulder was messed up all last year, killed his power)

    NL Cy Young:
    Aaron Nola (another contrarian pick when people inevitably choose 'Mad' Max)

    NL ROY:
    Robles (Toussaint and Hiura runner-ups)

    NL MOY:
    Bud Black (when Rockies win the division)
     
  16. If you want your dark horse, I'll give it to you...Byron Buxton.

    He's raking in Spring and it looks like the 20 lbs of added muscle is already showing itself. If the Twins are out front in the division like we both agree they could be, he's gonna garner a lot of attention and grab at least a few votes. He's hungry.

    Carlos Santana a real one for that :lol:

    Based off random pics I've seen from the Phillies in ST, their dugout looks lively as hell. Going to be fun to watch them.

    Have the Cubs done much to improve? I feel like they are in this weird standstill since the WS win.

    I want to see both Philly & ATL make it thru.
