    I'm sure you're right but Keibert's AAA promotion could set off a chain reaction where anything could happen.

    I think he would look great in those Pirate throwbacks.

    Also think Vasquez would look fetching (very homo) in Dodger Blue.

    That would take a HAUL and doubtful it will happen and I hope I'm wrong. I know it won't be Brad Hand because the Tribe are 3 games out of 1st in the loss column.

    I just don't see how Ruiz being called up impacts 2B or SS.
    But, again, I would love it!

    Well the 1st premise was that Ruiz up would logically move Will Smith, if they want him to play, to the infield. I maintained that it could also make Lux move from the infield to the majors. ALL speculation but I'm not sure why else you would call up Kiebert who wasn't tearing up AA by any means while Lux has performed so well at AAA. Just spitballing.

    I can see Smith messing around at 3B, but not the middle IF.
    Granted, I don't really pay attention, so maybe he has played there.

    Well a pretty nice debut by Kiebert last night. 2 - 4 with a HR and a season high 4 RBI.

    I'm going to see OKC here in Vegas on August 4th, hoping to see Dustin May. Will report back on whoever I see...

    Had the same thoughts but will not be making the 4 hour trek. Not a crazy Vegas guy and have already been there twice and scheduled to go back later this year (bowling). Hopefully you'll get a chance to see him IF he's still on the team.

    Lux has played well in AAA but we must temper the excitement. The power output is encouraging but we can’t realistically evaluate players in that environment with the incorporation of the “juiced” ball. There being more HRs at the ASB than there were in all of 2018 is telling...

    Granted PCL is a launching pad but AA isn't and he was solid. Your juiced ball theory has some legs obviously but it's been that way for everybody and he has been crushing. His ascension through the ranks of prospect rankings has been been remarkable and rapid as well so there is something there I mean really there. Small sample size I do get it but .482 in 85 PA's is mind boggling. DJ Peter's my man crush as seen my some posters on here has been real good too. Dustin May after an initial rough patch has been settling in. I'm glad CKWG has been enjoying his trip but I need some back up lol.

    Both AA and AAA for the first time this year have integrated the same ball that they are using at the MLB level. I guess they were using a slightly more depressed/synthetic ball in the past since it was cheaper. It’s why in recent seasons you’d see more instances of some guy coming up from AAA that had shown iffy/good power, then would be crushing everything in sight(Max Muncy for example). Not saying that Peters and Lux are both 1.200 OPS guys, but reports on them are incredibly impressive, numbers aside.

    Lux at 10, May at 35, Ruiz at 36, and Smith at 57. That's ridiculous and awesome

    I doubt they move Lux or Smith. MAYBE May, and I'm betting they do move Ruiz.

    Pirates want the moon AND the stars. Close to major league ready. Ruiz a year maybe 2 away. Smith ready and Lux/May (can't have both) are on the cusp depending on the rest of the AAA season.
