You know when a little kid goes into a grocery store and asks for unicorn flavored ice cream? You know that look all the adults give him or her? The “Isn’t is so nice that little kids can be so unbelievably full of wonder and can believe in the most far fetched things?”

That’s the look the guy gave me when i went into my local craft beer establishment and asked if they carried Heady Topper.

The guy barely stifled a laugh and told me " You cant get that outside of the state of Vermont and even then its hard to get. I do have some unicorn flavored ice cream if you want…"

LOL.

Travis Lakin

Summation : Lean, undersized frame profiles best as a reliever. Injury history led to transition into that role in 2018. Potential for two plus pitches in his fastball and cutter, with two additional pitches in his curveball and changeup to keep hitters off-balance. Has room for added strength and could add a little more velocity, although fastball has already played up in shorter stints. Prior to injuries, had a chance to start with a four-pitch mix, but bullpen role will give him a greater chance to stay on the field. Overall consistency of arsenal, fastball command, and control will be keys going forward.
