  1. It's difficult to hit .318 and still be a below league average offensive player, but Hanser is pulling it off so far.
  2. The rumor going around is it is over an affair with a drug dealer's wife
  3. You may need to re-calibrate your sarcasm detector.
  4. This particular issue hits close to home for me. I've also been a short stocky fast guy for 35 years now. I feel his pain.
  5. The idea that Stewart is slow is coming from nowhere but his build. All scouting reports and Statcast data suggests he is an above average runner.
  6. Of course. As far as I'm concerned, you're good enough for the 2019 Orioles.
  7. 4 runs in 5 innings is over a 7 ERA. I don't think that's good enough even for a 5th starter.
  8. This is great news if he can keep it up. The groundball rate was the largest factor in limiting his offensive ceiling. If he can maintain a high flyball rate and keep his hit tool intact, this changes everything.
  9. Right, which is why I generally hate when people throw out oWAR and dWAR. Looking at other metrics he was average to slightly above, which is about what dWAR says too. That is not "loving" a player to me. dWAR loves Mookie Betts for instance, not Travis Snider
  10. dWAR did not love Travis Snider. He was -0.6 for his career and had more negative seasons than positive ones. As for Smith, none of the metrics have liked him so far but it's too small a sample to make any reasonable assertions.
  11. www.reddit.com/r/mlbstreams Hopefully your work doesn't block it.
  12. Ichiro would not have been a very valuable player if he were a defensively challenged first baseman. Davis needs to hit and hit for power or be cut.
  13. Way too early for defensive metrics to be definitive, but they suggest that his defense over his 328 major league innings has been pretty bad.
  14. It certainly doesn't come anywhere close to explaining the difference, but their ballpark contributes to suppressing runs.
