  1. Age 27 Max Kepler exploded in 2019 with 36 home runs and 90 RBI from the leadoff spot for the Minnesota Twins. Obviously, this is a productive lineup that Kepler sets the table for and with his ability to hit both LHP and RHP well, plus his respectable 10% walk rate and 80% contact rate, he should also push 120 runs scored in 2020 if he stays healthy. He's not a source of speed and rarely gets the green light so he will rely his solid skill set to help this offense click. Hitting in front of Nelson Cruz, Josh Donaldson, and Eddie Rosario provides ample chances to score. The home runs seem like a bit of anomaly given his raw power scores and flyball rates stayed the same but he did see a nice uptake in home run % compared to 2018 all while having the same # of plate appearances. What are your expectations of Max Kepler in 2020?
  2. What do you think of this, in a vacuum? I'm so enamored with Vlad Jr. I live in NH and watched him a TON with Double-A Fisher Cats, but the other part of me is like "one in the hand is worth two in the bush" Would you trade a $20 Vlad Jr. for a $20 Jose Abreu on a competitive team right now?
  3. You're just not going to see a lot of HRs from this guy right now, but he can hit. He's a great plug and play guy and will score runs but he just doesn't put the ball in the air much. I'd expect about 100 runs+ if he stays in the leadoff spot, but with a .330 BA, 12 HRs, and 12 SBs.
  4. Any ideas on what pitchers he won't catch for? I wonder because I'm not sure how much time he will see at 1B this year on non-catching days.
  5. Two DEEP flyouts today. I thought the one to end the game was going out but Santana caught it jumping into the wall.
  6. Can we move this discussion back to Ohtani and less about the administrative functions of various platforms?
  7. Hopefully Texas activates Beltre tonight from the DL. Sounds like he's just about ready.
