Not me, I think he'll be what Detwiler was supposed to be.

I'm still trying to figure out who "bashed" Solis.

Haha.  It's been so long since we've seen it that I almost forgot about the patented sportsfan "Where are all the X that were bashing Y <lmao>" cut-and-paste "victory" dance.

How long have you been here with Sportsfan active? Just curious. He will make many posts like that.

I've got him on ignore.  It took about a week to figure out he had achieved an inhuman level of asshatery.

Ok cool. :lol: Posts like that aren't out of the ordinary. He will post some decent stats but then make a ridiculous comment to follow them. I kind of enjoy it. :lol:

Sportsfan is one of the most entertaining people on this board, and a pretty good guy. Of course now he'll say something that makes me totally regret it.

Norris and Harper both 2-4 tonight.  Carr with a solid 8th in relief and Kimball with a perfect 9th.

Just saw the AFL championship will be on the MLB Network Sat. afternoon.   They're advertising it as a chance to see Harper.

Kimball is on fire.

AAA closer, possibly MLB arm to start the year?

I know he throws 96-97.

Honestly, I'd trade Storen while he still has 'top draftee' attached to his name and get him for something worthwhile.

Can't imagine Balester, Clippard or Kimball doing any worse.

He and, to a slightly lesser extent, Carr have at least earned a ST look.  Makes it a lot easier to package one of the MLB pen arms to get something more needed if guys like this keep putting up good numbers.

Can't imagine Storen's value is high enough yet.  If he gets moved I would think deadline of 2012 or going into 2013 at the earliest.  Right now you may get his current value but he's too much of an unknown to cash in on potential just yet.

That's why we trade him now... no one knows what he's worth yet, only that he was a Top 10 pick... that title brings clout in trade talks.

As with Willingham, strike while the iron is hot.

If KC said Desmond and Storen as the base for getting Greinke then sure.  Same if Tampa wants him as part of a deal for Shields or Garza.  If he can be leveraged for proven talent that improves a more important spot then absolutely move him just like Capps was for a top prospect.

Jonathan Mayo from MLB.com ranks the top 20 AFL prospects. Check this out:

Quote
1. Bryce Harper, OF, Washington Nationals: Playing just twice a week, the No. 1 pick from the 2010 Draft made quite an impression, creating a buzz with his plus-plus power, his plus arm in right field and his surprisingly strong running skills.

11. Derek Norris, C, Washington Nationals: Norris rebounded from an injury-interrupted season and continued to show excellent on-base skills, along with some pop. He still needs work on receiving, but his plus arm allowed him to throw out better than 46 percent of would-be basestealers this fall.

13. Sammy Solis, LHP, Washington Nationals: The 2010 second-rounder was making his professional debut, more or less, in the AFL (having thrown just four innings in the South Atlantic League), and scouts came away impressed with his size, stuff and command. It wasn't much of a surprise that he was chosen to start the championship game for Scottsdale.

[Norris note->] 18. Devin Mesoraco, C, Cincinnati Reds: There was some debate over which backstop had more upside, Norris or Mesoraco, with some convinced the Reds prospect has a better chance to be an everyday, all-around catcher in the big leagues. That said, he didn't perform as well on either side of the ball -- hitting or throwing -- this fall, though it was an admittedly small sample size.


I was kind of hoping Bryce Harper would get on the list, despite his 2-games-per-week status. But #1? Dang. Kid must be legit.

Odd, Jonathan Mayo just tweeted that Bryce Harper is now starting instead of Michael Burgess.
