Posted 09 February 2014 - 12:05 PM
350 MiLB OBP?
1/2 BB/K ratio in MiLB?
30 SB in AA, 21 in AAA
Wow, forgot all about this guy. I'm on him like white on rice. Cheaper than a Starbucks cup of joe on a rainy Sunday morn.

Anyways, perfect $1 guy in my book. I went back to my 2012 mixed auction results and De Aza went for $2. Pollock obviously doesn't have the power, but I'm more interested in that 80R, 20 SB ceiling.

The author seems to think that AJ is headed for a platoon situation, but looking at his minor league splits he doesn't really look like a platoon type guy.

Just wanted to jump on some preseason thoughts. Eaton's SB attempts were limited due to Gibson's disdain for "giving up outs" (Source: ARZ mlb.com) Now Ventura is talking about manufacturing runs for CWS instead of playing for the 3 run HR. Since Pollack is basically still a rookie to Gibson, and he hasn't exactly earned the green light, I'm somewhat concerned about his actual SB attempts. He's so cheap, it's not an end game anyway.
Anyways, just a reminder how coaching philosophy can affect SBs. It's one narrative I actually pay attention to and read between the preseason lines.
