Hibernation, as longtime commenter and e-migo Souldrummer suggested, seems to be in order as things have slowed down considerably, this being just the second post of 2023.
The last BA transaction update had one signing: journeyman RHP José Mujica. Two days ago, the big club converted a waiver-wire pickup (A.J. Alexy) into a turning-19 RHP Christian Jimenez, who has the same name as many athletes, including a defenseman for Harvard. So not much in the way of a scouting report aside from the boxscore: a line of 3.38/2.42/1.15 in 37⅓ innings (10G, 7GS).
Next week, we should get some news about the IFA signs, with Elian Soto the most-rumored signing to be after January 15. While we may want to him the Lloyd to Paul of the Waner Bros, I’d be happy with Elian merely being the Dominic to the Joe of the DiMaggios.
As the pic suggests, I have begun working on the watchlist player capsules, knocking off a couple of categories already but that’s before I get to OFs and RHPs, which may take a wee bit longer. And, as promised, I’ve updated the Road Trips page to include Salem and Charleston.
And with a post to confirm the site hasn’t gone dark, I return you to trying to avoid the latest entitled white man without a clue.
