At least with Robbie Ray, we don’t have to collectively panic if his fastball is 0.4mph slower at this same time three spring trainings ago. With him, it is usually about efficiency and two walks over an inning and a third might be the key stat to overreact to today. Christian Walker got a home run and Yasmany Tomas got a hit. Goldy who?
I thought Lovullo’s plan was to ease Ketel Marte into CF after playing in the infield for a while. But this makes sense, he needs more practice playing CF than 2B. If anyone goes to the game, please let us know if he misplays any balls so we can overreact accordingly.
The Vegas numbers are 80-1 to win the World Series and 25-1 to win the NL West. The odds of making the playoffs are 6-1. So if anyone wants to tie up some money with a sportsbook for about 8 months on longshot bets, good luck to you.
I almost forgot about him. I definitely forgot how to spell his name. But good for him.
It is easy to be cynical about one of these annual Tomas ready to be great stories. He’s got to play 1B and not horrendously. He’s got to hit some HRs. Maybe pinch hitter? It’s not time to party in DC yet.
Who knows, missing out on paying $300 million might be a good thing.
I guess it is nice that Goldy gets to go to a town where he will appreciated to the fullest.
