    I googled Percival and juicing and all I get are juicing baseball references...

    It was the era of juice so who knows though?

    So, modern day baseball.

    Albies and Acuna in Atlanta?

    The upcoming of the WHOLE Toronto farm team?

    Anybody watching?

    A's Farm teams too?  Austin Beck, AJ Puck and Kevin Merrell.  Anybody know these names?

    A lot of young players out there to be excited about.  As a white sox fan, I've been much more interested in watching their minor league games than the big league games.  I expect to see Kopech and Jimenez up towards the end of the year.  A lot of other guys in the pipeline too....so happy that they finally committed to a full rebuild.

    Maitan is having a rough go as of yet but I still have faith.

    actually, the 4th.

    and the second to do it with “help”

    barry bonds 10x>poo holes.
    Pujols 2 rings.  Bonds 0 rings.  I watched Bonds almost single handedly defeat my Angels in the WS...

    But I still agree with Bonds being the best player I have EVER saw play and AROD was second.
    I went to Game 2.  Sand Frog with the huge homer.  K-Rod was amazing.  Bonds hit one about as hard as you are going to see a ball ever get hit.  (Still lost)
    I sat next to Giants fans.  A 'Stealth' flyover prior to the game was pretty awesome as well.
    A great time - I still have ThunderSticks in their wrappers.

    Albies and Acuna are fun to watch. I've been a Braves fan since the late 80s and this is one of, if not the, most enjoyable team to watch. I'm still tempering my excitement, but if the starting pitching gets more consistent, they could be a playoff team. Way too early for that kind of talk though.

    That was the game Salmon was seen saying “I’ve never seen a ball hit that hard.” or was it “so far”? percival pitched to him becausethey hada two run lead and bases were empty. every time bonds came to bat, he was “ a man in scoring position.”

    The hapless Pads get no hit by Walker and a string of relievers. Kid could be good if he gets his control down and extends his innings a bit.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Molina needed surgery after a foul top to the groin.
    Oh.
    Ow.
    I do not like Cards nor Yadi.  That stated, I feel badly for him.

    The two teams I'm interested in watching and their futures are the Braves and the Bluejays.  Man are there some talented players coming up!

    The Braves organization is run properly so they should do well in the future.

    Rough go of it for Piscotty. Love to see that guy bounce back after his last year or 2, once he has time to cope. Check out the SC story they’ve been running the last couple days. ALS is a dirty dirty bitch. 

    Incredible gesture by Darvish for a dude he’s never played with or against.

    This amazing Darvish story even though the writer thinks Piscotty is a pitcher...

    Also a player I am following.  Vlad Guerrero Jr.

    https://www.sbnation.com/2018/5/7/17328248/vladimir-guerrero-jr-blue-jays-opposite-field-homer-tee-what

    You'll know about him soon though even if you haven't been paying attention to the Blue Jays' minor league players.

    Oh and they have a few others to keep watching.  You just wait.

    Vlad Jr is gonna be exciting to watch!!  That tee shot is great, but did you see the one that hit the hotel during the game?!

    His 2nd HR of the night last night, a 5 RBI outing. 

    They also have another HOF son on the team - Cavan Biggio.  He went yard last night as well.

    Oh shit! Who all is in this class?
    Chipper, Thome, Hoffman and Vlad. A pretty good one.

    He was an amazing hitter. One of the few in the modern game that you'd see without batting gloves. I can still picture his swing in that Expos uniform.

    I'm glad I got to see Thome play in person for that nice bounce back campaign with the Twins at the end of his career. He just crushed the ball.

    Oh yeah, that's right.  I was like "did I miss this year's class?"  No, I think my short term memory is just getting worse.

    Biggio, Bichette, Walmorth, Alford are the others to watch also.

    I just saw that Matt Harvey was traded to the Reds. Good luck pitching in that Park where the ball flies out of ther.

    He won't ever come back.  He still thinks he can blow the ball by batters.  He needs to learn how to "pitch"...

    Speaking of Mets, apparently they batted out of order today...
