As someone who had Covid and was recently tested for anti-bodies, which were robust. My doctor informed me she doesn't want me to get vaccinated at this time.  I am not a risk to anyone else,  and following doctors orders and am not vaccinated.  Yet I am not exempted from the vaccine passport requirements some businesses are putting in place. 

You aren’t exempt because people who where infected are still at risk from reinfection with the variants. People with previous infections are still recommended to get the vaccine.

I saw Hoffpauir play quite a bit in Jackson…he reminded me quite a bit of Mark Grace…

He may not be Muncy or Turner, but he's at least still on this side of hope.  I'd rather pull for him than wait for his failure.

Little Sergio Alcantara has eleven hits in the big leagues.  Eight have gone for extra bases.

Twelve and nine.

Mentioned Muncy and Turner because Jeff noted them as older-guys-who came-out-of-nowhere—as role models to aspire to.

Nobody is predicting that for Wisdom nor is anybody waiting for Wisdom to fail either. As I noted, every guy is different and who knows—as we also have the LaHair and Hofpauir examples too.

Part of the fun of baseball. Sometimes, guys come out of nowhere and succeed. Sometimes, premier prospects disappoint.

Where does Hoyer get off?  ....  He needs to go.

It may be that maybe Hoyer and management deserve more credit than they've received for their creation of value out of nothing?
*Chafin
*Tepera
*Alcantara 
*Wisdom
*Duffy
*Pederson

Those have been some really good contributing pickups at no cost in traded-talent and negligible cost in $$.  (Pederson at $4.5 and Chafin at $2.1.).   

Jeff has mentioned the importance of creating value out of nothing.  Theo had some success like that in Boston, with Mueller and David Ortiz.  With Cubs in 2015 breakout, Rondon was a huge piece, Chris Coghlan was an under-appreciated piece, and Dexter was picked up pretty cheaply, too.  Maholm and Feldman. 

Some of the present contributors might fall off the earth, we all realize.  But I've got to give Hoyer and his scouts credit.
