Don't want to make the same mistake that was made with DOM and promote him too early, stunting his growth.

Iwakuma still getting it done. How long will this continue?

Flex I've banned myself from the chatbox for the rest of the day. We can talk here!

I agree. I'd say only 1 out of every 5 pitching prospects make it their first time they're called upon. Gausman is struggling, too. That's why guys like Shelby Miller, Harvey and Dylan Bundy (to a lesser extent, last year, as a reliever into the playoffs) impress the hell out of me. They seem to be an anomaly of sorts.

Not sure, because Kuma doesn't have the greatest stuff. 89-92 MPH fastball, at best; lots of secondary pitches, but doesn't have a true "wipe out" pitch. Pretty impressive how accurate he is at painting the corners.

Ya the guy is all about location about variety. He uses all his pitches.

Javier Baez had 4 HR's in 4 at bats for the Cubs minor league affiliate yesterday. Plays the same position as Castro and has made 27 errors so far this year at SS.

That's what I thought watching him. He'd be down by 8 or so runs against a good hitting team tonight.

I agree, MrMister. I think his change up is nasty, however. Just needs a little more time to hone his breaking ball and work on command. He's settled down quite a bit now, but still, Wacha doesn't look ready.

My hitting has AIDS again. Pretty cool that I get Giancarlo back and will probably lose Braun (not like I had Braun for the past month/few weeks though).



Oh yeah, how did/does Gerrit Cole look? I forgot he was pitching like I thought I would.

I didn't watch it, but the numbers are impressive. 2 R, 0 BB, 2 K's and 81 pitches in 6 1/3 innings.
