    • Basically if he can cut down on a little bit of the swing and miss in his game, he could become a perennial allstar
    • More and more, I’m hating the use of the term “luck” any time wOBA and xwOBA are significantly different.  You hit a lofted ball 380 feet within 10 degrees of the RF line, it’s a homer.  You hit a lofted fly ball 380 feet within 10 degrees of dead center, it’s an out.   Nothing lucky about it.   And xwOBA doesn’t account for the direction the ball is hit.    For me, there was nothing that lucky about Cowser’s early performance or his more recent performance.  The big difference, I think, is that opposing teams have identified his weaknesses, and he hasn’t successfully adjusted - yet.   Will he be able to adjust?   That remains to be seen.   
    • It's too bad they made the three batter rule. Otherwise I would be tempted to have two openers (LH/RH) to deploy in every game of the series. Plus a LOOGY for Soto in the later innings.
    • You don't need to worry.  They need right-handed power for the future.  He is going nowhere.
