Juiced MLB ball really helping Ke’Bryan’s power numbers.
His exit velocity has been insane all spring. So I don’t think that’s a juiced ball thing
I hope it’s for real. He was just an unremarkably average bat until he was promoted last year. 265/336/415/751 in AAA doesn’t just magically turn into a 900+ OPS player in the majors... unless it does?

Without looking up his numbers, wasn't Cutch a similar MiLB player?

The Cubs lineup is still elite, and will destroy pirate pitching all year.

But rooting for the #1 pick, best case is kebryan becoming elite and the team stinking

Better but similar until his partial final AAA season at 303/361/493/853. I guess that could have been Hayes last year in AAA if it wasn’t cancelled.

I didn’t even see that, was just looking at the pitch count.

Isn’t there some kind of rule limiting the number of pitching changes?

That Underwood dude struck out the side in his inning as well.

In other news, Glasnow is dominating the Marlins. I think Glasnow was the biggest **** of the Hurdle / NH regime.

Some where are they now:

Taylor Hearn pitching long relief for the Rangers, 1.2 innings of hitless baseball after the Rangers' opening starter Kyle Gibson couldn't get out of the first
Elias Diaz is the Rockies' starting catcher, I assumed he was in Japan or Korea or some such league

Meadows, Dickerson and Marte all starting in the Rays / Marlins battle of Florida gam
