[quote]If you look at football and basketball there is movement between the two especially in football. But you never hear of any successful college baseball coach being considered for a job any job in MLB--not even coach in the minor leagues. I suspect it may be due to the following. 1.

Lange for sure. Deichmann is super interesting to follow. There's a lot there to like, and a lot to dislike. If the power stays real then for him it'll be about adjusting constantly to pro pitching, getting stronger and finding a set position. He's got a chance. Freeman I won't be surprised ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Don't forget about Cannizaro - LfcSU3520 on 6/12/17 at 1:06 am
he managed them right the frick out of this game. He's got a pile of nothing in his bullpen and he yanks his starter after 14 pitches. Nonsense overreaction. Starter gives up 5+ then I get it, but with this pen you need all you can get out of him. No way he doesn't think this pen was going to...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (9)

re: MLB Strikeouts - LfcSU3520 on 5/25/17 at 2:20 am
pitcher velocity and stuff keeps going up and it's getting to the upper limits of most players' hitting ability. The raw stuff is so much better with each new generation (it really is getting crazy) and the data is now so thorough that it's hard for non-elite hitters to hit anything but mistakes. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Could an MLB team go undefeated playing a college schedule? - LfcSU3520 on 5/19/17 at 3:22 am
if you did ten seasons of this I think a college team would win A game in 6 of the years. Never more than 2 but I don't think that would ever happen. Like everyone has said, it would take one pitcher throwing out of his mind. The problem for the MLB guys would be infamiliarity with who they ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Predict Alex Lange's pro career - LfcSU3520 on 5/12/17 at 5:44 pm
spin rate isn't what I'm referencing although I'm willing to bet it's really high on his CB. I'm talking about the scouting term in that he can spin a breaking ball well. A lot of guys can't and they forever struggle to develop any sort of a working breaking ball. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

also mid-first no later than 20th pick. Then everything from there will depend on how good the coaching he gets is, and how hard he works. Mechanical consistency and some pitch tinkering and he has a shot to be up in late '18 or '19. The minor leagues are a humongous fricking crapshoot bu...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
