    Kyle Tucker went 1-for-2 with a 2 out, 2 run single and he now leads the majors with 17 RBI. His numbers are very similar to Acuna, he just doesn't get the same attention because, well, he's not Ronald Acuna
    Acuna .410 avg 4 HR 10 RBI 1.255 OPS 4 SB
    Tucker .410 avg 4 HR 17 RBI 1.224 OPS 2 SB

    Random stats from a couple other kids I'm prospecting who are doing well:

    Brendan Rodgers .302 avg 3 HR 7 RBI .910 OPS 1 SB
    Scott Kingery .364 avg 3 HR 5 RBI 1.097 OPS 4 SB

    I wish I could be including stats of Eloy Jimenez & Bo Bichette but the Jays never use Bichette (except in games where stats don't count toward ST numbers) & Eloy was sent down after hitting 2 bombs in 3 at-bats. Pfffttt...
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    The Astros vs Braves game is televised today and I was so hoping I'd get to watch a game with both Tucker & Acuna. Couldn't they just have waited one more day?

    Ah man, Acuna must be off his game today. He's just 2-for-3 with a measly RBI, run scored and NO home runs!

    SELL SELL SELL

    Whenever Ohtani's mechanics start to click and he gets comfortable with his new surroundings I wouldn't expect to see his offensive stats improve too much more than where they are at right now but I'm assuming he'll look like a completely different pitcher.

    I never projected him to become a frontline starter and I always thought fangraphs/mlb.com's #1 placement of him in their top 100 rankings was a little ridiculous (I would have put him 3rd or 4th. Acuna, Guerrero & possibly even Eloy are budding superstars with too high of a ceiling for a pitcher to be ahead of them. I realize it was the fact he was considered both pitcher & hitter that got him that 1st place ranking but they should have known better that offensive stats from Japan don't translate to upper level milb or mlb numbers) but I'd be surprised if he doesn't start pitching like a solid #3 starter by midseason.

    Big JV, the GOAT has tossed 3 scoreless innings against the Mets so far. He'll likely get a couple more innings of work.

    Acuna is not in the starting lineup today. Braves must have felt it would be unfair to the Blue Jays to do so.

    Julio Teheran is quietly having a great Spring, heck I didn't even notice. 4 scoreless no-hit innings with 3 strikeouts. He's currently sporting a 1.00 ERA & 0.88 WHIP in ST

    Make that four scoreless innings for Verlander with a couple k's and no walks.
