|2013-08-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)||I love Rage Against the Ozzy. My favorite song by them is probably "Mama I'm On Parade". What do you think of Taylor Jordan? He's had his ups and his downs but seems to me like a credible 5th starter for next on a team that hopes to be a contender, even though he didn't make much prospect noise in the minors. |
(Charlie from Bethesda)
|HA! Great call - I'm a fan of "Bomb Pigs". The jukebox switched songs on me while I was typing, and I ended up with a blend.
I like what Jordan brings to the table, especially that heavy sinker. His mechanics are good not great, lots of average grades on his mechanics report card, and I would prefer if there was more velo separation on his change-up and breaking ball. He is in a great organization when it comes to pitcher development, and I think that your 5th starter assessment is a good one. (Doug Thorburn)
|2013-07-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)||20 team dynasty, h2h 7x7 (xbh, obp, hld, qs). My offense is filthy, and my pitching has a bright future, but is a bit under developed. Strasburg-Moore-Cain-Wheeler... then Taylor Jordan. I have Taillon, Gausman, and Martinez (StL) on my reserve/bench. I also possess the likely 1-1 prospect pick. I have two suitors for the pick.
I can hold the pick and grab Buxton next year, or deal it to a team with the 1-3 pick (he's one of the favorites to win the league title this year), or to a bottom 3 team with the 1-20 pick (these teams coincidentally own each others picks). Would you deal the rights to Buxton and maybe one of my high end 'spect arms for the 1-3 and a SP (His SP: Zimm, Grienke, Darvish, Weaver, Scherzer), or deal with the cellar dweller (owns Taveras, S. Miller, W. Myers, T. Walker).|

|I generally prefer to invest in hitting, but if your hitting rakes then it seems you could use pitching NOW so I'd lean toward Darvish or Scherzer. (Paul Sporer)|
