Baseball America: Major League Best Tools

Recommended Posts

To summarize for the O's:

Trumbo and Davis 1-2 in the AL in best power.

Manny best defensive 3B and best IF arm in the AL

Britton 2nd best fastball in the AL (Chapman), best reliever in the AL

Buck 2nd best manager in the AL (Francona no. 1)

Note: But Buck and Francona are in their 4th spot as manager.

I have no problem with they said, except, the homer in me, has Buck ahead of Francona.

No love for Schoop in defensive 2B category?

I don't know if Schoop belongs in the top 3 but if Altuve is the best in the AL than he has improved a ton from a few years ago.

The thing is that with shifts you don't see too many of the diving plays, web gem types, from your middle infielders. Seems like more opportunities are there for the 3rd basemen. Playing SS isn't like what it used to be. I don't know what the metrics say but just from watching the games it seems like 3rd is the new SS.

I have a lot of hesitation trusting the judgement of a group that decided Gibbons was a good manager.

I don't understand that selection either. The Blue Jays have underachieved based on their Pythagorean record every season since he's been with the Jays.

Is there any reason to believe that has any connection to the manager? The manager is like the President. He has some usually small influence over a lot of things, but gets nearly full blame or credit for almost everything. I'm sure Buck, Earl, and James K. Polk had years where their teams fell short of their Pythag.

1972 comes immediately to mind. The O's underperformed their Pythag by 10 games that year with Earl at the helm.
