    He might be Chris Carter 2.0, but he’s had less than 200 mlb plate appearances. Something seemed to click with him in AAA (I think a poster mentioned a swing change - leg kick) and his avg/walk rate went way up. It all depends on your league, and needs. Plus all bets are off this late in the season and playing streaks can really help you. I need power in a deep 5 OF and this guy has provided it big time and possibly without a hit to avg. Has anyone been watching him - does it look like he’s improving or getting lucky since being recalled?

    Definitely holding. He has been faltering, but his rest of season matchups look great (if I’m reading it correctly on my phone - TX, KC, KC, Det, Det, WSox). I’m in a pretty deep league and he’s done a lot more good than bad for me as a 6/7 starter. My waiver wire is barren though.

    When I evaluate whether someone/or thing is cheap it’s about the overall hit to them. If they are getting reimbursed that amount they are not truly spending the amount listed, and it’s a significant amount. I don’t give a rat’s keister if it counts or not towards the cap, they didn’t actually spend it in the end. In addition, the past two years were the years to break the bank and to hell with the cap - it was their window and if you’re the Mets those are small and rare. I don’t love letting payments for past work accumulate. I don’t love Bonilla’s contract .

    Yes, one shows fifth. Most of the others showed 11th or later. I didn’t include all of the ones I found.

    Not trying to start a fight, but I’m genuinely curious. I (quickly) looked up several (only included two randomly and no idea of the legitimacy of the sources) but do they really rank top 5 consistently? What is the most accurate source ? Most of what I found showed 11th or twelfth highest, plus does this include Wright’s salary portion that gets reimbursed by insurance? Subtracting that would drop them even more. There’s also Bonilla’s salary and another crap one I’m forgetting, and they really should not be included. I find this organization cheap with intermittent reactionary terrible decisions that cost them long term leading back to being cheap. http://www.stevetheump.com/Payrolls.htm https://www.statista.com/statistics/236206/payroll-of-major-league-baseball-teams/

    Thanks for the post. Interesting ... Hmm, have his Lefty/Righty splits completely flip-flopped from prior years? .274/.205 L/R 2018 and .152/.272 L/R 2017 per Fangraphs Just curious, what do you see as his upside full season?

    On the dL for a hammy again....

    Something sure seems different. His walk rate is nearly double his next highest year in the majors (13.9%) and his hard hit % is the best ever as well. I grabbed and am holding to see for now.

    Please some talking him up so much - you’re going to jinx him. I hope I’m wrong but I feel like you’re Mush from a Bronx Tale for players you like.

    Dude that’s so rasc... positionist, or position-o-centrist.

    Wait, I may be wrong, but aren’t you a Philly fan? If so, Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. And I’m no Yankee lover

    Highest Hard Hit % ever 37.4% too. GB% (26.3) seems to be much down, with much higher FB (53.7) and around his usual LD % 20%
  13. Matt Adams 2018 Outlook

    Is this guy a grab? Playing time is of course a concern when if Eaton/Murphy come back. Zimmerman is always an injury risk though highest walk % ever 14 LD % way up - 31.4 soft hit down - 9.8 Med 49.6, and hard hit up 35.9 https://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?playerid=9393&position=1B

    Why the hell did they bring Castillo out for the top of the 7th?!? He was at what, 100 pitches then. Let the guy build up some confidence at this point and pull him there.

    https://twitter.com/ESPNStatsInfo/status/990686565235126277?s=20 What a first start. I’m definitely adding to the end of my bench to see if we’ve got anything here.
