His career whiff% on 4SFBs is egregious and so are his numbers against off-speed pitches (not-breaking, but specifically Changes). Neither of these things have changed in the early season. His overall whiff% is really high makes me think he's going to strike out 30%+ anyway, but he's a curiously good breaking ball hitter early on. Teams will figure that out. If he can't touch 23% of 4SFBs I think he'll fall apart at the seams. His career nubmers on 4SFBs aren't even bad in terms of BA/SLG, but his K total is and I think the Whiff/Ks will win out in the long run. Still only 180-200 PAs career so those are the numbers that matter to me. 

 

And again, small samples, but his problems in this regard pre-2019 are still absolutely prevalent. I consider problems for Whiff% (4SFB) at like 10%. 15% starts scaring me bad. He sat at like 23-24% prior to this year at 22% this year. EGREGIOUS. And on his career he has a sub-.100 BA on changes with 1 BB 1 1B 1 2B in I think 23? ABs. 

 

I don't know when it happens, but I think when scouting reports get good on this guy they will demolish him into a fine powder and send him to Japan al-a Christian Villanueva. I'm being a little extreme and hope I'm wrong but that's what I see. If I'm a scout working for a team and see walker right now I'm screaming to talk to the Catcher and make sure he knows how to call this guy. 

The 2nd paragraph is gold with the fastball whiff %. 20+% is unreal

Lol obviously doesn't have any fantasy relevance, but Greinke's OPS is 1.731

I dunno how Stripling keeps doing it, but he's getting it done.

1st inning the cubs ran themself out of inn. Next inning Contreras gets thrown out at home on a ball to the pitcher.

Two liners with exit velocities above 100mph and nothing to show for Turner.

I need Trevor Bauer to pitch a C.G shutout every time out with a .50 WHIP.  No sweat Bauer power can handle it.  I enjoy watching this guy pitch.

While he got a hit today, what a heaping, stinky mess of sadness AJ Pollock is. I'd rather have the inevitable prolonged injury than this ineptness crap.

I guess I just have to accept Freese is the 3 hole bat for the Dodgers. 

This is my life now. 

Thank you Dave Roberts, may I have another?

A.J. Pollock is straight up pathetic 

I want to drop so bad.  I think he might get grabbed and go crazy.  I have Matt Carpenter flashbacks from last year instilling that fear in me.

76 pitches for Stripling. Captain Hook showed up way to early. 

4.2 innings.
