    It’s splitting hairs but Cerny can absolutely fly. Not sure he would be faster than Leon if he keeps filling out though.

    Cerny is really interesting. He is projectable but he is running out of time.

    It’s obvious Whitley still has a lot of tools. I have some questions about how those tools will work over a period of time, and I question his fortitude - but I would love to be proven wrong.

    Let us pray to the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He can do it.

    Would be exciting as hell if he can keep it going for a full year.

    That leg kick and swing path reminds me of early Bryce Harper.

    Not really a leg kick, more of a timing step, but I get your point.

    Here's rookie Harper for comparison:



    At least Gilbert doesn't have a mullet, as far as I know.

    Was hoping we’d get a good idea of who will be in AAA based on todays rosters but looks like they are just taking everyone who will be in the upper levels to Houston for these next 2 days. Probably will not see minor league rosters released until Friday.

    RHP Michael Horrell
    LHP Kevin Dickey
    LHP Bryan Sammons

    Horrell and Dickey were 2019 draftees.

    Sammons had signed a minor league deal earlier this offseason.

    AA would be a pretty aggressive assignment for Palma and Hurtado. But it would be a great sign for all those young guys to be fit for the upper levels.

    I remember back when Nova was the SS of the future in case Carlos left.

    Sugar Land Roster appears to have been updated but is 12 players over the 28 player limit so probably more to do.

    It was just updated with everybody who was available in the 2 game set against the big league club. My guess is we will get updated rosters sometime Thursday afternoon or Friday morning.

    I never understood that one man. Did I get caught on Singleton? And Reed? And a couple other guys? Sure. But I never saw the Nova shine as making any sense.
