"I wish people wouldn't lump Cecil and Lind together. Lind has had a great season...and through his struggles the last couple years has maintained his power."
What numbers are you looking at when you say he has maintained his power? His XBH's have fallen from 81 to 58 to 42 since 2009.
just looked at the boxscore... holy smokes
cecil's home is in somebody's bullpen
"cecil's home is in somebody's bullpen"
anyone in the home run derby this summer would be insane not to ask Cecil to pitch to them...
sure... if the situation is that you want to give up some runs to let the other team back in the game. that would be a fitting role. he has less than mediocre speed with no control. I dont see him not getting crushed in any role.
if cecil cant learn to hit corners consistently, he is done. 19 year old AA hitters crush 85 MPH center cut fastballs.
i can see him morphing into a Downs type
"Why does everyone love Jenkins all of a sudden?"
What I like about Jenkins is so similar to what I said several years ago about Richmond...pitch the living <shit out of him, who cares about his future.
