    definitely not shocking or worrisome, but worth noting for now and it can't (and probably won't) continue.

    I don't think they are shocking.

    Not quite sure what you are talking about .... look at all the future hall of gamers we have on this team

    Freeman
    Markakis
    Acuña
    Albies
    Soroka
    Fried
    Riley

    Then borderline HoFers
    Folty
    Newk
    Flowers

    This could be an all time team here!

    i meant as far as Riley's development into a very good player goes...Riley could never hit the ball again and there's so much talent there that the team still shouldn't lose a game the rest of the season.

    Bats are closer to last than 3rd place. East is now a 3 team race and not sure how long the Mutts can hang.

    You’re wrong on Riley and he’s proving it almost every night. Keith Law is that you?

    Most MLB players have a hard time handling premium velocity...which is why premium velocity is so valuable.

    Riley is obviously not going to post a 1.200 OPS for his career, and he may not have a bat as quick as Javy Baez, but he very clearly doesn't have "bat speed" issues.

    He seems to have a bit of a long swing, and I'm sure pitchers will be able to take advantage to some extent. He may have to guess a bit to catch up to god velocity but it's not like he's going to regress to a AAAA hitter.
    I think he (Teheran) finishes with a FIP ~3.3. -CrazyTrain 3/25/2019

    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
