*going through the rolodex in my brain* Ah, yes, that was a good time in the summer of '99...Oh my, that's where I left my keys in December of 2012...Oh, shoot, the finale to Breaking Bad--Eek, don't want to revisit that, I might rewatch it at some point....

Would you consider this a high-octane, high-offense, get-high-in-48-of-50-states-but-watch-your-stash-in-Alaska-type of environs? Present day baseball, I'm saying. Would you consider it a home run happy environment? Not to answer, but to nod along like you...

A big part of 2021 fantasy baseball drafting is going to be not throwing out the baby with the bathwater. The "baby" being a player who had a terrible 2020 season, and the "bathwater" is the player who had a great 2019, and was primed for a breakout before...

On the big league side, the Giants employed three specialized hitting coaches to great effect in 2020. This made an immediate impact on the field--a field that shrunk a little before the season when the front office decided to bring in the outfield walls....

Alex Kirilloff has the same number of hits in the playoffs as Mike Trout. Sorry, I forgot my parasol, so I made my own shade. An important aspect to him starting a playoff game shows -- Oh, by the way, in case you didn't hear, Alex Kirilloff made his...

Andrew Vaughn, hmm. A classic case of team ready to win, having the parts to do it, but are they thinking long-term to save money? Like Altuve trying to get cereal, going with the latter always wins. Never trust teams to promote prospects. It's good self-care...

The Padres took a turn as America’s team this summer, partly because Fernando Tatis Jr. hit a grand slam on a 3-0 pitch when his team had a three-run lead, partly because the whole team pitched in to make the name Slam Diego stick, partly because we...

I was tempted to do a rookie outlook post for the entire Marlins organization. Here's me putting guys in categories in my brain: "Okay, Jesus Aguilar, you stay where you are. Everyone else take a step forward." Seeing one player with his head low, "Wait,...

Predicting rookie call-ups is a lot harder this preseason than in past, because of the previous year shizzshow. Usually a team calls up a guy in September, lets them play for a few weeks, then they appear ticketed for an April call-up in the next season. Or...

The champions enter 2021 with more answers than questions, just as they’ve entered the past few seasons but now featuring the added benefit of some shiny new rings to verify that they are in fact the best as this game.  Their minor league system,...

So, there was some high drama behind the scenes for this rookie outlook post. Prospect Itch does not, under any circumstances, agree with me writing or promoting Cristian Pache in any way. Thinks he's overrated and might struggle to hit .220. Others in my...

Inspired by JKJ's recent lament on the St. Louis Cardinals, combined with my First Year Player Drafts informed by The Prospect Itch and Hobbs, as well as noted scout John Sickels' "Shadow Twins" series of articles, I wanted to reveal my own mourning process...

"Is everyone still a rookie?" That's a good question, Left Side of My Brain. "What is a rookie?" Shut up, Right Side of My Brain. Ya know, sometimes I’m very left side of my brain, sometimes I’m very right side of my Brian. This brings me...

There's a few categories of rookies. One category of rookies is guys who could be extremely valuable if they get an everyday job out of Spring Training -- your Wander Francos, your Royce Lewises, your Brendan Rodgerses (Rodgerii? Rodge on rye?). Then there's...

The temperature reads 23 degrees as I write this sentence, so Arizona sounds pretty great to me right now. The high for Sunday (today) is 82.  That’s probably cold comfort for Diamondbacks fans, who find their club somewhat adrift at the tail...

"Wonder Twins power activate! In the form of a string bean!" That's what goes through my mind every time I see Triston McKenzie. If Triston McKenzie and Deivi Garcia were ever on a seesaw, they'd both be in the air with their legs dangling. Triston McKenzie...

Don't want to this post to be 500 words long to get to the conclusion, "Meh, maybe, if Nate Pearson is healthy," so, yes, he had elbow tightness, which is a concern, but he threw two innings in the playoffs -- yes, two whole innings! -- and his velocity was...
