    Aggression with prospects is fine, but being stupid is not. There should be a way to find a happy medium between a Pirates like idea of being overly cautious with prospects and going stupidly fast with prospects.

    Right, the Braves made mechanical adjustments to Minor's delivery and he had increased velocity almost immediately. His strikeout numbers were absurd. This is who Allard is.

    Speaking of “improvements”: pretty good article from The Guardian this week on the community blight of @Enscheff’s favorite, the Dollar General, which sells itself to towns as an improvement, but actually further chokes them down into destitution and irrelevance, diminishing them faster than Allard’s prospect status.

    Allard apologists are going to defend him until they are blue in the face because they canít admit they were wrong about him. At this point all we can do is hope he beats the odds and adds significant velocity.

    I doubt he ever does. But here is my theory. High school he killed it. Hitting mid 90s. Back problems cause major surgery. Comes back and is drafted and back is hurt again. Minor back surgery. Comes back and coaches tweek delivery to relieve pressure on back at the cost of velocity.

    I think if he ever wants to be successful, he needs to find that velocity he once had. Even at the risk it could have on health. His other stuff is not good enough to carry a hittable fastball.

    Allard was mid-90s for 1 single innings in a showcase game. The Braves bit based on that bump in velocity.

    Allard was always low-90s. The hope was he would grow into more. He didn't. He probably won't.

    Kiley McDaniel: Allard was 90-93 as an amateur and was 92-96 for one inning in the PG All American game in August before the draft. He’s basically been 88-94 every outing of his life except for that one, but he was an athletic 16-year-old with three pitches and feel so, despite not being projectable, some thought he would mature into more velo. The back issue didn’t help, but that was always a bit optimistic. This is about what he is.
