I've read... Bessie Smith was a HUGE star in 1920-whatever. HUGE! She was pissed this young 17 year old Louis Armstrong came in and stole her thunder. She never worked with Louis again.
He went on to his own fame btw... 😛 BIG time!
This take is insane. You're not going to penalize late-career Peyton Manning or Drew Brees for not throwing the ball more than 15 yards past the LOS. Why are you penalizing Lamar? Lamar can be an MVP level QB even if 95% of his passing game is within 15 yards of the LOS, especially if he's completing 67-70% of those like he did in 2019. He brings enough else to the table that it's okay if he can't do it all.
Both his intended air yards per attempt and his completed air yards per completion is more or less the same as Mahomes. Mahomes does throw more deep balls, but that means that it's balanced out by the fact that he also throws more short screens to the LOS (and I've already discussed why screens aren't really an option for the Ravens.)
If 2022 is like 2012, and Gunnar Henderson plus one whole summer of "Skill Development" can approach Machado's precocity.
I do hope the need to slide to 3B is for something a bit more fun than JJ Hardy though!
If Henderson can outplay Westburg for the Baysox SS gig and hold his own at 19/20 in AA, I don't know where else but the next year picture there is to go (we do like AAA MVP awards though).
With all the thoroughbred hype, an Aberdeen/Delmarva starting assignment pair for these two is "C'mon man" material. Vavra was a college guy who went to the Sally and was MVP, but he was a 3rd rounder.
I grant AA for either of them is a big ask, but don't know how you work it if you think both are SS and need the game reps.
