  1. Maybe Adrian should put his hand down on the plate next time.
  2. So last week Eloy hit a ball 119.4MPH, no one other than Stanton has hit a ball harder since the emergence of statcast.
  3. Yeah, 22 year old kids who put up 3.9fWAR are awful. He wasn't the seventh most valuable SS in all of baseball or anything.
  4. I was referring to overall player, not just offense. In a regular year Heyward is near twice as valuable as Pence usually is.
  5. Offensively perhaps, but defensively and on the bases Heyward blows him away. Also, in a regular Heyward year it's not even remotely close.
  6. There's a reason he was a top 10 prospect despite the enormous risky K rate. His upside is absolutely enormous. One baseball writer when asked about Baez's upside said "Javy Baez could become a religion". He's pretty much far and away the best 2B defensively, brings his tagging ability, is a plus runner, can play several positions and his .737OPS this year is just scratching the surface of his offensive potential.
  7. Simply put there isn't a lot of new information out there right now so there isn't much of anything to share. Once we start getting winter league news and end of year lists things will pick up.
  8. There are really no words that quantify how terrible a decision this was. There's no way he can justify it and maybe we're seeing why Buck's team's always win their WS after he's gone.
  9. Sad for Britton and I believe there's an 80% chance he's not with the Orioles next year. They're losing Wieters and Trumbo and there's no money and no farm to replace them. Their best option is to trade Britton and start to rebuild, especially since he's no longer going to be cheap next year. Looking at about 10M in arbitration.
  10. First time in a long time his slider has looked like it did last year. Let's hope this is the beginning of a nice run.
  11. My understanding is that Mancini can barely play 1B let alone an OF spot so he's pretty much going to be DHing if the Orioles go that route. With that said, he had a pretty disappointing second half of the season.
  12. My understanding is that Arrieta wont be pitching game 1 or 2 if they're facing either LAD or SF anyways. Lester will almost without a doubt pitch game 1 so he can get two starts as both SF and LAD suck against lefties. Hendricks will get game 2 because he has been especially dominant in Wrigley(1.32ERA).
  13. The Cubs don't rely on the long ball. As far as HRs go, they're only average. They've hit 184 which is 14th in baseball. What the Cubs do really well is get on base .341(2nd), OBP skills work anywhere.
  14. I barely squeaked past the semifinals, but now I'm only one more match up away from the promised land in my dynasty league(team in sig). It makes it worth trading all the minor league talent I did this year.
