Anyone see Verlander at the Pebble Beach Pro Am this weekend? He hung around until Sunday and ended up 3rd. When you got it, you got it!!!

He had 399 ABs last season and has never had more than 510 in a season. He will never reach 1000 combined over the 2 years. Astros won't have to pony up $15 million for him next year.

And I would never trade Tucker for Realmuto.

Glad to hear! Yes he won't reach all of those. 1 of them he might.

I like him and think he will do fine this year, but he is patchwork for the future. Need to draft a good catcher and also sign/trade for one. But do not give up Tucker.

I like Gose's attitude! If you get a chance to here his interview today, do it. Asked about his confidence he said it was high. Said he's a lefty and throws 100, how many guys do that?. Asked about his other stuff, he said he has a curveball from hell

Proposed Thread rule: we do not use that four letter word this season. Ever.

He got a ring (unearned). Why cant he just retire with the bank hes already got for doing nothing but hurting this team.

A friend of the family told a San Antonio station Whitley took an adarol(sp) to stay awake on a late night drive home. If so, stupid on his part. Hopefully he learned his lesson and will be ready to help out for a playoff run at the end of this year.

Yes sir. When I was 20 years old, I probably would have taken it to stay awake for long drives to certain college campuses. Back then the best thing I could find was nodoze.

Adderall is good stuff. And for him without a prescription illegal. But very easy to get a prescription for it as it is used for ADD and ADHD.

It is also taken alot around the baseball community.

At least it isn't for "PED's" even tho it does enhance your performance.

Like mentioned above, a late september callup anyways so hopefully he is ready and has no more issues

They are saying it is an old injury but the pain just happened. Removed a bone spur and no one seems concerned. This will take him to about mid April so missing 10-15 games based on injury but technically the suspension has to be served after the DL stint is done. Reed or Davis will make the team for sure now out of ST and get a longer audition to impress.

White not in contention? Reed..is still suspect to me at the show.. he may be tearing it up in AAA ..but his bat never really showed up ...

I know they spoke highly of kent being used as a marwinized player..

I think White is the frontrunner for the 25th spot with Kemp in the running. Im saying the other two are choices to take Yuli's spot while he is away from the team. Im secretly hoping Tucker plays so well he makes the team as the LFer and Fischer goes to AAA but that aint gunna happen.

Nah. Fisher already has his clock ticking. They will wait until later for Tucker, so they don't burn a year on his service time.
