I mean, it's like they don't even know the most basic thing in baseball.

You get 4 runs in the bottom of the 9th when down by 3 with a bloop, hbp, walk, blast. Who doesn't know that.

Regardless of the fact that Cabrera needs more time in the minors to get his stuff where it needs to be; not going to win many games when the offense consists entirely of a lead off home run.

That's why we're so inclined to draft a bunch of college hurlers. To make us forget how quickly our depth evaporated after Hudson and Jack.

Hudson isn't [expletive]. Jack is all they have and he has some issues with the longball. Mikolas has a 4.68 FIP and is still hard to comp and project.

We have not only no depth, we have barely anything above replacement level.

Completely out of character, but I'm still hoping we can get someone closer to Kluber when Huddy adds another pitch(refines?), and a couple of years under his belt. If not, he's an elite roogy.

He's Seth Maness with a more durable arm.

Hudson annoys me because all he has to [expletive] do is throw strikes. The contact is fine because he's a wormkiller groundball guy, supposedly. Though at MLB level, that seems to be not happening like it did in homer-happy PCL. But the dude walks way too much.
