@Dustin Nosler @snaggletooth1 @I Digesti I'm thinking they changed his change classification to cutter.

@snaggletooth1 Nicasio has averaged 93 for his career, and that is as a starter.  Davis had similar velocity averages as a starter.  He jumped to 95 as a reliever last year.  Not a stretch to see Nicasio gaining 2 mph as a closer.

@Bay_of_Puigs @Montgomery Burns He was pretty chubby.  Way too chubby for a 16 year old.

@Purple Drank @I Digesti Which can be linked to a swing that isn't dialed in.  Bat speed suffers when a swing isn't right.

Ethier has a very specific swing and screwing it up screws him up.

Totally want Olivera on this team.

@DroogyDodger Yeah, he seemed better against the best than anyone.  Probably because these two were such awesome strike throwers, Tony just took what they gave him and swatted it.

@Batted Bob Is it me or did he use a fountain pen?  If so, classy.  Too bad he's been a dick to me both times I met him.

I wonder if the Jays saw this coming and doubled down on Martin because of it?

DH is dumb. Keep things the way they are and have pitchers hit eighth.

I can totally see Uribe slide into the Manny Mota role.

@Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @I Digesti @efb @DBrim There has been a measles outbreak centered on a Citibank in Camarillo.  I thought someone was confusing the two.

@0ptimus @I Digesti Yeah, but that has nothing to do with being in shape.  It has to do with not swinging at garbage.

@brincon @Still PFP Trade Kemp for Russell Martin

2 months, 1 week ago on Dodgers-Padres trade being held up by Matt Kemp’s arthritic hips

Reply

@Mike Petriello @I Digesti Bo's injury was significantly more serious than even what Mike Napoli had.  Plus, Bo probably could have continued baseball if he had better early career training.

Reply

@TellMyWifeISaidGoodbye @I Digesti I know.  Hence why Kemp having "arthritis" is not something we necessarily have to worry about.  He could just be 30 and not one of the fastest guys in baseball going forward.  I bet you can find arthritis in Jayson Werth's hips too.  He's merely above-average fast and still has an incredible arm.

I still don't like the trade.  It doesn't sound like he has avascular necrosis, or anything serious like that.  Not to mention that Mike Napoli still plays a very excellent 1B with avascular necrosis in his hip, and Bo Jackson came back and still played the OF with just about the worst case of avascular necrosis ever.

@BIah @I Digesti @PagansOedipalComplex @Iron Man Returns Not really, given that arthritis can mean a lot of things that aren't a huge deal.

I never wanted Kemp traded. Not last year and definitely not this year. The further we get from that trade with no real return, the more angry I get.

If Rosenthal is right, and no other parts to Kemp deal, this Fucking sucks

If he has a .350+ OBP and a 20/20 season with 40 doubles, I'll be very happy. Especially with a K rate of 25% or less. Though, I would much rather move Crawford and $40m

Brown was an older pitcher with arm problems. Kemp is still young, plays a low injury position and is a need (offense)
