You guys nailed it, they absolutely screwed themselves in the off season that was the time for major upgrades , relying on the trade deadline with limited financial flexibility and a terrible farm system was a horrible plan.


I have 2 deeper dive questions about our system; specifically in High A:

  • How is the Tyler Osik catching experiment going? I see he is getting a bunch of DH at-bats, but how is his catching coming along?
  • Has Luis Mieses approach changed/improved at all? His K% has dropped to 16.6% and BB% up to 6.0%. Is that just seeing this level a second time or is there approach changes?
