What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Hey guys, just found this on Cody Buckel, our 2nd round pick last year: Cody Buckel, RHP, Rangers (Low-A Hickory)You ever sit around wondering if it’s even possible for the Rangers to have even more talented young arms to talk about? The answer, of course, is yes. A second-round pick last year out of a Southern California High School, Buckel began the year pitching out of the Hickory bullpen, but he joined the rotation in May and has seen his stock skyrocket. He has a 1.98 ERA in eight starts, including Friday night’s outing that included a career-high 10 strikeouts in 5 1/3 one-hit innings. While hardly a monster on a scouting level, Buckel does have above-average velocity and command, as well as a good breaking ball and advanced changeup for his age. He just turned 19 in mid-June, and in a system loaded with young, talented pitchers, he’s now more than just another name in the crowd. Just wanted to pass that along........
In 47 innings pitched, he has 61 total strikeouts... Wow
We have a ton of talented young pitchers in our system. And to the guy who keeps asking about Cueto? Why would the Reds do that? In his 4-year extension? "The deal buys out all three years of Cueto's arbitration eligibility, plus one year of potential free agency." Why would they trade him? Not even a valid question or rumor?
Ricky, yes that is me... Check out this thread on the forum before you bash me: http://www.bbtia.com/forum/post/1534304 and http://www.bbtia.com/forum/post/1535471
Not bashing, just saying. His contract is more than team friendly, they are only 3 games out of 1st, and I never believe some generic guy who claims he knows a guy with organization "x"... blah, blah, blah. Not bashing you, just pointing out why it makes no sense. If I use a supposed fact or rumor, I'll site my source's name and quote verbatim.
I hear you Ricky... I don't think its true either... Apparently he has a conflict with the manager and the gm... Still no reason to trade him when they are 3 games out, and like you said he is under control for the next 3 years
