    That would seem to put basically our entirely team on quarantine for a while, right? Is he not constantly around all our pitchers and coaches?

    I would think if they get tested, they’re good to go.

    Hopefully these scouts drop him out of the top 5 so Al doesn’t feel tempted to draft him

    Yeah It's hard to shake the feeling that Rocker is destined to be a RP.

    I’m not buying the Rocker is a reliever part. He doesn’t need to develop a 3 rd pitch in college. He’s getting guys out with 2 pitches right now, and even with lower velocity. He can develop his secondary pitches in the minors.

    I’m still team Lawlar and Meyer, but would put him at the 4th best prospect right now.

    I’m excited to tune in for Skubal and Mize starts, which means this is the most excited I’ve been for a season since the rebuild started.

    Al says he hopes everyone gets vaccinated during this homestand. I’ll be curious how they stagger those shots, though knowing Al, he will have everyone go at the same time and then we will be the first team to go on the Covid list because everyone is suffering from vaccine side effects.

    Mize last two starts seems to have been real good for 4 innings or so and then falls off. Wonder to limit his pitches and keep up his effectiveness if they limit him early in season to two times through the order for a little bit

    he needs to put on his big boy pants and power through it. That’s how you get better man. I don’t see him going past 5 innings much to start the season, but they shouldn’t be taking him out after 4.

    Yea he can't do that forever, but I may ease him into the season with going 4 or 5 his first few starts and gradually stretching him out

    Al pulled up Callis and Law’s list and did a ctrl F for Stewart. When results not found came up, he felt good about making the call.

    Yea I see us having trouble scoring this game and Boyd is going to give up at least 4 in 4 innings before probably an early hook

    He’s just connecting the dots but if Correa makes the top of Rosenthal’s FA rankings, maybe it’s possible?

    Hopefully Avila is not around to any free agent decisions.

    his interview the other day didn’t sound promising either about spending this off season. And Avila usually a straight shooter.

    Anytime you can spend $300M to lock up a SS who has played more then 110 games in a season exactly once you have to do it.
