    Sitting in the lobby for a Dr. appointment this morning I spotted the new May 2017 Sports Illustrated and hadn't seen or read one in a long time. This kid was on the cover and the title is something like Lebron James in a Baseball Uniform. That's like 7 miles from my house but had never heard of this phenom before today. Certainly will be worth keeping an eye on his career. He's really accomplished in many areas of his life. LOL they're even throwing out the unicorn smack.

    Then again maybe it didn't need its own thread. But if Kobe Bryant had been his same HS phenom and from the valley he would have needed his own thread because of his prodigious talent.

    So that's why the Phillies lost 26 of 32.

    Shohei Otani is another pitcher-hitter. He is 6'3, hit 22 homers last year, batted .322, and went 15-5 with 190 Ks. Allegedly has hit 102 mph. Batting over .400 this season. He's 22.

    2nd to the Reds. Most think they'll use him with the safer bet as a pitcher but he'd rather play as full time SS. Can mash 450' shots at 17. Hitting the tougher gig in MLB over pitching conventional wisdom.
