That's what I've seen. He's definitely not just a breaking ball hitter. His bat speed is more than enough to catch up to quality fastballs. And the fact that he uses RF so much means he shouldn't have problems against good heat.
Sands has the foot speed and arm strength for RF, though he's not going to win any gold gloves. I've also seen that he quits on breaking pitches and often swings thru them. It'll be interesting to see how Double A pitchers adjust and whether or not Sands can react.
Yeah, I wouldn't expect JC pitchers to worry much about holding runners, but Bryce Harper has a Tim Tebow-like release.
Thanks for the link, Jay. However, I have a question about the salary listed for Manny Ramirez. It says he made just under $24 million, even though most of his salary was deferred over the next 4 years. According to Cots, Manny made $10 million in 2009, will make $10 million in 2010 and will receive payments of $8.3 million each year from 2011 to 2013. Why is his listed salary so high?
Shawn, where are you getting your payroll figures? Are you saying the Dodgers spent $132 million on player compensation in 2009?
Considering Javier Vazquez has a no trade clause that includes any NL West team, I nominate this one.
Where would George Sherrill rank on this list? /sigh
Ah, didn't see that. Still, he managed 6 more hits over the weekend and with KG's mancrash, I thought he was a surefire nod for today's list.
Can't believe you, of all people, wouldn't mention Dee Gordon, who is riding a 10 game hitting streak, had 7 multi-hit games in a row and hit .533 last week.
Shoutout for Brian Cavazos-Galvez, who has 7 HR in his last 8 games for Ogden in the Pioneer league. And one for Nathan Eovaldi, whose ERA since June is under 1.
Since you told me the Dodgers were in on a bunch of prospects, can I blame you if they end up not signing any big names?
Thanks again, K Mac. Have you hard the Dodgers tied to anybody recently?
Oh, and I LOVE Mateo's swing. Really hope the Dodgers get him instead of the Gnats.
Excellent work, K Mac. Is the pitching market down this year?
Now that is surprising, since it seems like since McCourt took over, their budget has been about $15. lol
Thanks for the info.
Great article(s), Kiley. Really looking forward to the scouting reports so I can see who the Dodgers aren't going to sign...
6 IP, 1 Hit, 1 R (0 ER), 2 BB, 7 K\'s
I\'m really anxious to see how Gerrit Cole does today.
Regarding Billingsley: Will hates big butts and he cannot lie.
103 pitches with 2 walks? Sounds like foul hell.
Proponents of salary caps (and floors) are more concerned with competitive balance than maximizing profits for owners or players. And using 1 year to show that the \"competitive edge\" of spending more is \"neutralized\" is an extreme case of sample bias. And in that year, the Cards had the 11th highest payroll in the majors (http://content.usatoday.com/sports/baseball/salaries/totalpayroll.aspx?year=2006). While the playoffs are incredibly unpredictable, there\'s still overwhelming evidence of high payroll correlating with reaching the postseason.
