Rowdy Tellez with an RBI double in his first MLB at bat. Never doubted Rowdy.

After watching his post-game interview, that double goes down in the books along with Johnny Macs fathers day dinger.

Increased pressure to perform early on, too much rotation and velocity and volume at young ages while the body is still growing. That's my guess, anyway.

Ohtani is getting TJ, and they announced it this afternoon. Tonight he hit a dinger.

They always were. It was just after TJ you became a knuckleballer or retired. So you never heard about the minor leaguers who ”busted”.

The only guys who survived were the ones who didn’t break down.

Gibby doesn't want to work through a rebuild. I don't understand the drama surrounding this.

It's just clickbaiters trying to fan the embers in hopes it creates a fire.
All of the more transparent sports media ppl like the TSN overdrive crew don't even treat it as a story.

SRF has been unreal today. Still walks too much, but his fastball location early in counts is fantastic. Hes growing/learning. He just made cutch and stanton look like theyre swinging a pool noodle.

Sanchez is a poor comparable, SRF actually induces swinging strikes and doesnt have the same GB rates. His command is a work in progress, but still probably better than Sanchez.

Tantalizing skill + no control. Perfect comparable. All that other shit you listed is whatever.

Also, love denting the Yankees home field advantage.

Like I said, stupid comparison, SRF had better walk rates than Sanchez in the minors too.
