re: 2018 Question: Do we have enough quality pitching to keep Hess in The Pen. - JustSmokin
[quote]For same reason Rivera was not a starter for the Yankees and will be in Hall of Fame as the best reliever of all time. [/quote] You must have a solid starting rotation in college to get to Omaha. You can get by with two studs and one serviceable Sunday starter. It's pointless to have a stud...

I don't think so. As fun as it is to see Hess as a closer, he'll be more valuable as a starter next year....

re: Will Hess easily touch 100mph - JustSmokin
[quote]So you're saying as a starter he'll hold back some on his fastballs?[/quote] Pretty much. Starters can't give max effort on every pitch and expect to go 7-8 innings. In critical spots they'll go max effort. ...

re: Why are umpires allowed to have their "own" strike zones? - JustSmokin
[quote]It is impossible to know if they are awarding a good pitch or if that is how they perceive it. Again, presentation by the catcher/pitcher is key[/quote] Another example of this is when the catcher is set up outside and the pitch is missed to the inside (or vice versa.) It's often called a ba...

re: DH coomes and Slaughter 1B - JustSmokin
Neither are hitting the ball lately since the SEC tourney began. Jordan struggling at .242 (8-33) and Slaughter a meager .214 (3-14). I don't know if it's good or bad to make a change. ...

re: Went to Brq yesterday (review) - JustSmokin
Loved the brisket and cornbread. The pit beans were solid. Will definitely go back. $2.50 for an 8 ounce bottle of coke is a bit much. Also not a fan of no ice in a small glass of water. The waiter did return with a larger glass of ice when asked. ...

re: Paul Mainieri 9th inning management - JustSmokin
PM gets roasted no matter what had it not worked out. It was a tough call to make. Poche pitched well, but he's not a closer. Hess has been on fire recently. It worked out, so he got it right. ...

re: What's the correlation between draft position and making it to the major leagues? - JustSmokin
Posted this on the rant earlier today. Might answer some of your questions. Here's a study comparing college vs high school draft picks for the first 5 rounds. College players do better in the early rounds but it balances out in later rounds. Bottom line is it's hard to make it to the bigs and...

Here's a study comparing college vs high school draft picks for the first 5 rounds. College players do better in the early rounds but it balances out in later rounds. Bottom line is it's hard to make it to the bigs and stay there. Interesting study if you're into this stuff. [link=(https://d1b...
