    Francisco Lindor just hit his 36 HR on the season, a line drive that went out of the park faster than any other I have ever seen

    Comparing these players to Mays, Mantle, and Musial. It's hilarious.
    I'm not taking anything away from Acuna Jr, Soto, Ohtani, Gleyber Torres, or any other player.
    But after these guys are in the majors for a year or so, they will get charted, scouted, etc..
    And they will all come back down to earth like 99% do.
    It's no different than when Jay Bruce made his debut, Yasiel Puig, etc, so many get called up and burn it up for a while.
    And then all of a sudden it's like "What happened to that guy?"
    There are only a hand full of Trout's, Votto's, and Mookie's out there. Who plays like an all star or mvp for 10+ years.
    Ozzie Albies another great example.

    Those guys are not the same as Jay Bruce. Bruce was averag-ish for his first few seasons. Soto and and Acuna are putting up OPS+'s of 150...as teenagers. Bruce topped at at 124 at his peak.

    Nobody should say they are locks for the HOF, but they are special.

    Riddle me this: can we look at Reed as a serious rotation candidate for 2019 based upon pitching well against the Marlins?

    Doesn't bother me that it's the Marlins...You still have to be decent to dominate a AAAA team.

    I would be disappointed to say the least if he opened next year in the rotation. But I assume he has options, so it wouldn't be a bad thing to have him 6th or 7th on the depth chart showing some promise.

    His stuff looks good today. Movement and location.

    I think it was the new glasses for Reed. He doesn’t act like a nervous wreck any more.

    Perhaps you have forgotten about his 10 strikeout performance against the Cubs last week.

    5 innings, 6 K's, and 7 GB to 1 FB.

    Isn't that what we are looking for?

    I pencil Reed into the 2019 rotation as a No.5 with it being his spot to lose.
