Mike Soroka Is Having An Amazing Rookie Season, And Nobody Is Talking About It

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   One of the Braves top prospects entering 2019 was RHP, Mike Soroka. He got a short glance at the MLB last season, but didn’t do anything too special in his short 25 and a third inning sample size. 3.51 ERA, 2.85 FIP, 1.442 WHIP, decent control, ok strikeout stuff. Regardless, he was still a front runner for a starting job for the Braves behind Mike Foltynewicz, and Julio Teheran, and one of the team’s top pitching prospects. Needless to say, Soroka decided to take advantage of the opportunity, and is pitching like an ace. Let's first...

Will The Mets' Off Season Spending Spree Payoff?

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   We see teams decide to “go for it”, and add tons of pieces to their team in hopes of making the playoffs. Sometimes, it doesn't always work. See the 2015 San Diego Padres when they acquired Craig Kimbrel, Matt Kemp, Justin Upton, Wil Myers, Derek Norris, James Shields, and Yangervis Solarte. They finished with a 74-88 record, and missed the playoffs. Sometimes, teams overhaul their roster, and it fails. The Mets did add tons of pieces to their roster, and it looks to be working so far. They’re off to a 6-3 start to the season,...

Braves Weekly Recap: Opening Series

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Austin Davis   3/28: Braves @ Phillies 10-4 L 3/30: Braves @ Phillies 8-6 L 3/31: Braves @ Phillies 5-1 L In short, the Braves did a horrible job in showing people that they have the talent, in the very least their current state, to pull off a second division championship and making a deeper postseason run than last year. And while it is just three games, with how the bullpen has been performing and the state of the rotation being as it is, it may be time to panic. However, before we get too hard on the bullpen, the starters didn’t...

What Will The Mets Do With Dominic Smith?

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   Before Peter Alonso, there was Dominic Smith. Smith was the team’s first round pick during the 2013 draft, and steadily rose through the minors, improving every year. By the end of 2017, Dominic had been called to the majors after a season in the minors where he had a .905 OPS, and 134 wRC+. He had also been given good ratings for his glovework at first. Smith may have struggled in his initial call-up, but at just 22 years of age, he was still considered the future of 1B for the Mets. However, Smith’s fortunes would...

What I Think Of The Bryce Harper Signing

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   On the 28th of February, outfielder Bryce Harper signed a $330 million mega deal for 13 years with the Philadelphia Phillies. It was the largest in free agent history to date. Even though Harper could be a great player, there is a lot of risk in this deal. The main risk in this deal is Harper’s inconsistency. Harper’s numbers in terms of WAR are all over the place. Just look at his WAR since his rookie season: 2012: 5.2 2013: 3.7 2014: 1.1 2015: 10.0 2016: 1.5 2017: 4.7 2018: 1.3 Harper has yet to put...
