    God I am so impressed with how Soroka doesn’t mind pitching to contact.

    Not going to lie...Chip’s call on the Riley was 400 x better than Boog, Ross, and Chipper.

    Riley’s hands were SO quick on that homer.

    Riley murdered that ball...holy crap.

    Riley is a perfect example of a prospect most of us would be willing to move...he might end up being one of best hitters of the bunch. He has gotten better each year.

    Riley caught up to a center cut 90 mph fastball.

    Let's not pretend like we can analyze his swing mechanics or future based on that haha.

    I do look forward to quoting these comments in about a month.
    I think he (Teheran) finishes with a FIP ~3.3. -CrazyTrain 3/35/2019

    Gausman had a bad walk ratio for us -CrazyTrain 11/20/2018
    BB/9 with Braves: 2.72

    Fried, Newk and a couple other guys for Bumgarner and give him a pay day for 6ish years -CrazyTrain 10/15/18

    They are just excited about the kid, but you cannot help being an asshole. You're pathetic.

    I’m obviously a huge Max Fried fan but Soroka may be a legit ace. He’s just so composed and knows how to get outs.
