Hopefully that is an error by Roch.  As Presley had a .558 OPS in 2016.

He's probably talking about last year when he batted .314 with a .770 OPS and was still a replacement level player.

Oh yeah, I definitely hope this isn't their big offensive signing.  I guess if anything, it would signal that RF is Hays' to lose. 

I'm sure this does not stop us from signing someone else. Personally I'd like Dyson and one of Cobb/Lynn and call it a day. It is time we get back to focusing on pitching and defense.

Fine with me.  Dyson or Jay (both of whom I prefer to Dickerson), and Cobb/Lynn.  Then, you may realistically have a shot at a wild card, be in the same boat as LAA/MIN/SEA/TEX.

I'd rather they play Hays in RF.

I think so too.  

It just seems like this team does that are backwards. Why Presley when they have Hays and other minor leaguers that are younger and better. What's their fascination with these washed up players? Washed up players and pitchers. Whoopie. What a poor run organization. IMO

I think Hays makes the team. He kills lefties.  Holds his own vs righties.  Brugman/Presley can play vs tough righties.   Defense will be an important element of the decision of who is in the majors IMO.

Quote

The Tigers are looking for a centerfielder. Do you feel you have a shot here? “I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think I had a chance. I’m just trying to go out and played well.”

What do you like to do away from the game? “I like to play guitar in my spare time.”

What kind? “I have electric but I like playing acoustic a little more. I definitely play it more. With the electric, you have to set up the amp. I just pick it up and play.”

How did you learn to play? “I just picked it up. I never had lessons. I watched stuff and figured it out. I’m pretty good. I’m not the best.”

What type of music? “I like rock songs. Some country. I like a lot of the ‘90s grunge bands. Nirvana. Alice in Chains stuff. They had some unplugged stuff. I love that stuff to see how they do it and go from there.”

How many guitars you own? “Five, I’d say.”

Can you sing too? “Heck no. I don’t even try to sing.”

Hope Presley is going to play in Norfolk, his dWAR was awful last year.   Plus his batting average is wildly inconsistent year to year.  Would rather give Hays or Satander a chance.  

I don't buy the fielding stats. And dWAR is not really even that, no?

So is Santander a lost cause? Nobody's talking about him much. Still an intriguing player, no?

    • Given our division, until we are league average players in the international signing market then we are always going to face long rebuilds. 
    • I tend to agree that Sisco is not .100 worse at the big league level than he was in the minors. Seems to me that he is likely the kind of guy that you need to go with everyday. 525 ABs over for seasons means he's played sporadically at best.
    • The answer is so obvious that “yellow” shouldn’t even have been an option. BTW when I first saw this I initially thought the first option was “Nate’s HAIR is called Fair.” And I was, like,”well duh. Of COURSE it’s fair. He’s Blonde.” If we subtract the no-brainer answer, Nate’s home run would be my choice.  in 2014, even without Manny, we won 96 games, and the Royals were so lucky that I’m not sure a phalanx of archangels could have beaten them. In 2016, we were enjoying a dead cat bounce,  and even if we’d pulled off the WC game, it’s doubtful we’d have gone any farther. But in 2012, we had a great team, we were on the rise, and the Yankees had serious problems. I’m not sure we’d have gone on to win that game 5, but golly, that would have been one of the all time sweet memories, regardless of what happened next.  
    • That’s the one I would choose if it was an option. The 1996 ALCS might have swung differently if Richie Garcia does his job.
    • They all sucked! But I’m going with Nelson Cruz.   Also ...missing is the Mayer interference not called!
    • The bigger impact was the repercussions of the mistake internally. I feel like Angelos got gun shy in free agency after the Albert Belle deal. But with the Glenn Davis trade they gutted the depth of a team that had trouble developing talent. As a kid after Cal Ripken there was Boddicker , Mussina, and a whole lot of disappointment in player drafting and development.
    • I know most will say Chris Davis but some things cannot be measured  by cold hard dollars.  The Glenn Davis trade not only  was lopsided with the talent the Franchise gave up for him, but also the psychological damage it did to the fan base.  Glen Davis was to be the RH power hitter needed, it seemed like forever,  and was thought to be a sure thing, but was not to be.  I know I felt crushed for such a long time by how that turned out.  We all make mistakes and both of these situations were mistakes,  big time.
