  • All I can say is that is one hell of a pretty swing. Can't help but get even more excited about the guy after seeing that.

  • In reply to kylejo:

    It is nice. Pretty high leg kick, wonder if he may end up taking it down a little.

  • In reply to John Arguello:

    But yeah..otherwise very sweet, polished swing.

  • Who is our OF for 2015 or 2016. Could we have a starting 8
    all produces from the farm system except for Rizzo?

  • In reply to emartinezjr:

    Soler and Almora are good bets and that is quite possible as far as a starting 8 coming from the system. Pitching is a different story, though.

    I really hope not. I can't imagine all these kids(7 of em minus rizzo) are going to be contributing enough on a playoff team. ( yes, I expect and pray the Cubs will be in the playoffs if not in 15', then 16)

    Great Video John, thank you very much for finding the link and posting it. That didn't even look like your typical meatball. Looked like it was a tad up and inside but he got around on it so fast!

  • In reply to Jim Odirakallumkal:

    Reader (cowboy) actually told me about it. I did watch Boise and saw it live -- and the announcer did say he was going to post it at some point, but I missed it. Thank goodness we have great readers.

    Well you deserve a thank you for all you do around here anyway!

    Thank you reader the cowboy for finding this gem!

  • In reply to Jim Odirakallumkal:

    Thanks Jim!!

  • Just comparing his batting stance, it reminded me of Chipper Jones. No? The announcer in this video also taught me the correct way to say Jeimer Candelario's name (Jaymer). Cool, I've been thinking High-mer the whole time.

  • In reply to HefCA:

    Candelario was born in NY, so i wonder if there is some Spanglish going on there. J should should like an H. Should be more Hey-MER, I thought. But dialects are different and my background is not Dominican. Plus I'm sure that's how Candelario says it, so we'll go with it.
