  1. Baseball America on Fedde: Erick Fedde, rhp, Nationals. Washington’s No. 2 prospect—following the trades of Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez—Fedde has made an impression on manager Dusty Baker. “He’s one of the guys at the very top of the list in case something happens,” Baker told reporters. Fedde pitched five scoreless innings against a very representative Mets lineup, allowing just two hits and striking out three. Fedde was aggressive with his fastball, and has worked on improving his tempo this spring, working with pitching coach Mike Maddux.

  2. Statcast weighs in:
  3. Unless there are any objections, I will turn this into the "All Things Star Wars Thread"
  4. Another 1-2-3 inning for Fedde.
  5. Bill is waiting...lurking...watching...
  6. I try not to put too much stock in Spring Training--but I love seeing him stifle the Mets' regulars!
  7. I am really starting to like Fedde. Like a lot a lot
  8. I had visions of 2015 Jayson Werth and 2015 Anthony "Day-to-day" Rendon...
  9. Yay, USA. Glad they won. If they lost, I couldn't have cared less. Leyland sat on his ass, smoked his Marlboros, and just acted like he was still in the Springfield Retirement Castle. Nolan Arenado was secretly replaced by Danny Espinosa, K'd 9 times in 26 ABs, yet played everyday. Meanwhile Murphy, Josh Harrison, and Alex Bregmann got 6, 5, and 4 ABs a piece. Ian Kinsler, prior to last night was almost as bad. Yet, played every day. McCutheon had a big hit, but his OPS was .412. You're telling me he couldn't work those three guys in for players who aren't doing ****? This is a very strong case why the DH sucks. Jim Leyland didn't do a goddamned thing. He just sat there, and "won" the championship. The reality of the situation is: they were only in that game was a very good fielder for Japan got a bad hop in ****ty conditions. Otherwise, they would have lost to Japan--with a lineup that struck out 12 times. 12. But, hey, why would you use a player with a career 11.8% K-rate (and runner up MVP)?
  10. Typical Junkies BS. But, hey, at least they acknowledged the Nats existence.
  11. Max's finger is my biggest concern. The Junkies this morning were saying Strasburg's elbow is about to blow...
  12. The most annoying part is, it's not like Kinsler or Arenado are lighting it up. Arenado had the Gold Sombero last night.
  13. I was about 265 beginning of Winter; I'm about 270 now.
  14. Lots of talk about the US going "All-in" for the next WBC. If they had gone all-in this year (hard to predict 4 years from now), I'd imagine it would look like this: Lineup: Trout CF Betts RF Bryant 3B Rizzo 1B Harper LF Posey/Lucroy C Seager SS Murphy 2B (because **** you, Jim Leyland!) Bench: Stanton, Arenado, Goldschmidt, Crawford, Jones. Rotation: Kershaw Scherzer Douchebagdegaard MadBum Sale
