Reyes could be the answer but what is the question?
Jeffrey Todd

Man I love this guy.
Josh Hamilton

Do i ever reach the big leagues again?
Jeffrey Todd
3:31
I'll guess no, but you overcame the odds once before.

Kelby Tomlinson and Tyler Beede for Yunel Escobar
Jeffrey Todd
3:31
Whoa, that sounds like too much.

Where does Greg Holland stand in terms of rehab? any shot at him returning in August as previously reported?
Jeffrey Todd
3:32
No talk of that that I'm aware of. He'd need a full month rehab assignment, and we don't seem anywhere near that, so ...
Mark Shapiro

If I'm interested in Jay Bruce, does it stand to reason I'm interested in Cargo?
Jeffrey Todd
3:34
Perhaps. Similar age/contract (Bruce cheaper). Depends on scouting assessments, but could be part of same market for sure.

Is jp Crawford up this year?
Jeffrey Todd

September.

Walks are now accepted as a positive outcome for hitters. Why are they still a negative outcome for pitchers? Thinking Glasnow in the Minors... yes he averaged 4.5 BB/9, but only 5 H/9. Isn't that the same as 9 H/9 and 1 BB/9? Why the negative steriotype?
Jeffrey Todd

Not sure I follow exactly, but ... a walk is better for a pitcher than a hit. (No possibility of error, runners on don't get extra bases.) But high walks = free runners & suggest other problems (poor control or poor stuff).
Wow.
Sorry
Jotcast is not having this - totally locked up.
3 more and we'll wrap up - and I'll try to deal with this issue.

Why is Evans waiting to get bullpen help? Giants would have 60 wins easy with even an average bullpen.
Jeffrey Todd
3:41
Everyone waits. Always. Teams don't have enough certainty.
Hard to hate on Bobby right now!
Billy

Panik, Shaw, Blackburn for Andrew Miller?
Jeffrey Todd
3:42
Don't think you give a regular 2B up.

Hey Jefferey. Thanks for the work you do. Is it too early to be concerned about the lack of progress from some of the Braves pitching prospects? In particular ( Matt Wisler, Mike Foltynevic, Aaron Blair, Williams Perez)
Jeffrey Todd
3:43
None were can't-miss. Not worried. Wisler has been pretty decent IIRC.
Billy Cub
3:43
Andrew Miller is too expensive, what about Jake McGee? Decent alternative option?
Jeffrey Todd
3:43
If he can return to health and start striking people out again, sure.
3:44
Doolittle was my fav Miller-lite before he went down.
We'll end with that witty line.
Thanks, sorry for the slow responses, and have a great week!
