  1. When Judge is doing well or being consistent there are not many comments at all. Has a rough day, suddenly everyone feels compelled to comment. Feels like a lot of people want him to fail tbh. (For those that don't own any shares in fantasy at least)
  2. My boy Judge. Looking at his plate discipline numbers, I noticed he's swinging a lot less and I recall last year when he noticed the same thing and made a conscious effort to be more aggressive. I wonder if he'll turn that on again or this is a conscious effort to become even more selective.
  3. I think that's a good description of what we are seeing, if you watch his at bats, he definitely looks more refined.
  4. Where's the love for my boy Aaron? 3-4 against Sale including a homerun? A lot has been made about Judge's 2018 outlook and how he would regress from what he achieved last year, while that is very likely considering the heights at which he reached last season, you have to be encouraged by what you are seeing from him right now. Am I the only one? Still early of course.
  5. Great read.
  6. Well one thing I haven't seen mentioned as of yet, maybe I've missed it, is back in mid May his average against RHP was ridiculously bad which was uncharacteristic of McCutchen since he's not a platoon player. Now he's still only hitting .244 against RHP on the year, but I recall it being absolutely horrid in mid May. I believe if you were to look at his average vs. RHP from mid May to now it would be drastically improved. This speaks to me like he suffered a timing issue, possibly mechanical or otherwise and it was hindering his ability to hit RHP.
  7. I traded Odor and Paxton for McCutchen and C. Martinez back in mid may. Haven't looked back. I look at his peripherals, I felt he couldn't be as bad as he was showing and I was waiting for the rebound. So far it's worked out for me.
  8. From what I can see, he's falling behind in counts. I think his patience is being taken advantage of by pitchers, forcing him to dig himself out of a hole. He's not K'ing much, but he's making weak contact on a lot of pitches.
  9. Hopefully some signs of optimism! One can only hope.
  10. Can we get down to the nitty gritty and discuss what we can realistically expect from him? Looking through his plate discipline numbers, there's a lot to like: O-Swing% 20% Z-Swing% 66.1% Swing% 40.5% O-Contact% 74.2% Z-Contact% 85.4% Contact% 82.3% SwStr% 7.2% BB% 10.3% K% 17.6% The ones I've bolded demonstrate significant improvements over his 2016 numbers, yes small sample size, but I can't help but be really encouraged. The .395 BABIP ensures his .AVG will come down no doubt, but are there any other concerns that we may be witnessing a good season from E. Suarez?
