  1. Thanks for reminding me. And I call myself a hockey fan.
  2. Greatest winner ever in sports history. RIP.
  3. As a lifelong Mets fan, that's a painful observation. That's exactly how they beat us in the 2015 Series.
  4. Lots of work to do. On the trade front, seems like most guys think the Padres will be the most aggressive on Soto. Also, more important to us, what are the Braves up to.?
  5. I would add our OC to the list as well. He's not a rook anymore, and he really got tons better toward the end of last year. I think that will be huge this season.
  6. Absolutely...the Orioles dominated the AL for year with Mark Belanger barely hitting.200. That was always a position where your hitting was overlooked because of your defense. Today, absent a few outliers, it's C.
  7. Data is fact. That said, you keep referring to whatever QB you're dissing as the 3rd pick in the draft. Since Zach was the #2 pick, I guess you are killing Trey Lance?
  8. Can't come soon enough, and when they put in and enforce the pitch clock, we'll actually be getting back closer to real baseball.
  9. Anybody know a team that has pretty nice depth at DT? A team who has a large number of fans who are always interested in acquiring certain 49rs players?
  10. Probably the hardest thing for a young, fairly mobile QB like Zach is to learn to go through your progressions and give the play a chance to develop, not run at the first sign of trouble. From the early returns, it sounds like that is what he has learned and has started going through the progressions faster.
  11. Ohtani is the target.
  12. Interesting quote from the Reds GM last night, something to the effect that " this was the best return we could get for Castillo." Looking at the two big deals so far, teams that are buyers don't seem to be willing to part with the "gems" of their systems. You know the Yankees had to be in on Castillo but wouldn't budge on either top SS prospect. Mets did trade with Cubs last year, and gave up Pete Crow Armstrong for that Bum Biaz, but that wasn't Eppler, I believe. Wonder if the Mets would include McNeil in a deal in lieu of a prospect? I have a sneaky feeling the Yanks may try to get Ohtani. In that case, doubt any prospect would be off limits.
  13. Defense will be much improved, but the offense has way more talent.
  14. La Greca and Rothenberg are the only two on that list I would even consider listening to. Don't know how the FAN is still in business.
  15. Happy Birthday @Lith. All the best. Really looking forward to seeing you and Chris and some of the other guys on opening day.
  16. I agree with you here......you just never know about 18-22 year old kids. These two moves remind me of the 2015 moves bringing in Uribe and Kelly Johnson....two professional hitters and good teammate type of guys. Also shows the trust Cohen and Eppler have in their analytics team....both guys have over career .800 OPS vs righties. FWIW...Vogelback was on base 3 times in both of the last two games. As Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) said in Moneyball...." why do we like Hatty? Because he gets on base." All that being said, feels like they are still working on the "big one." The Cub deal for Contreas and Robertson makes sense, buy think it will be something else. Also, how far has Kelenic fallen? it would have been inconceivable a year ago for Seattle to get Castillo without him being in the deal. Unless he is still untouchable ( highly doubt it) it just shows that as highly touted as these guys are, you just never know.
  17. If you look back at their first 2 years, Elway and Aikman would have fit that bill too.
  18. After the spread you guys hosted two Jet trips ago to Charlotte in the corner parking lot, never.
  19. You may have a visitor who is currently in Cleveland that will probably have a bunch of free time come September.
