Just for fun, Mancini vs Machado...

Mancini...    280/351/529/879, 33 2B, 34 HR, 99 R, 88 RBI.

Machado... 255/334/460/794, 20 2B, 30 HR, 79 R, 82 RBI. 

Their WAR's (bbref) aren't far off (2.7 vs 3.1) as I'd expected. Thought Manny would have walked away even with the lackluster hitting.

The 40 games at short cost Manny probably half a win or so.

Any idea if Mancini will attract trade suitors this offseason?  Who needs a 1B or RF?  Top 100 Prospect in return?

Manny has been in a hellacious slump for nearly 7 weeks now, hitting .197/.300/.318 since August 1.   I think his WAR was up around 4 when the slump started, and it looked like he was on his way to about a 6 WAR season.    But he’s really been struggling.

The Nationals could use a 1B, but I don't know if the Orioles and Nationals could agree on a trade with the MASN lawsuit still in progress.

Mancini went 4 gotr 4 with two doubles and an HBP tonight, raiding his OPS to .892.   That’s the highest it’s been since July 2.   Would love to see him crank it to over .900 at the end of the season.

He was going to get 6-6. He’s sitting on an even .900 OPS. That would rank him 6th overall for 1B in all of MLB. 13th for OFs. 

But just like Ted Williams when he was hitting .400 near the end of the season, Mancini will keep on playing.

Trey will be even better next season....you heard it here first.   He will turn into Paul Goldschmidt.   And Trey has had a better season than Goldschmidt this year too.

I want to know what they're doing with the ball next year.  If they go back to 2014 baseballs a lot of players will go from 35 homers to 22. I'm guessing they want to dial back homers by 10-20%, but they've never been really good at that kind of fine motor skills.  In 1987-88 they tried to get things back to normal and homers dropped 40% and offenses fell 2/3rds of a run a game.

really good point and it does make one wonder.

My guess is they will try to adjust the ball to something between the 2018 and 2019 ball.  Back off a little to limit the HR records but keep it lively enough to make the game action interesting.

    • If you think trading Villar for scraps is a good idea (which is the same thing as "cash dumping" Jim Johnson, btw), then non-tendering him really isn't a big leap from there and it likely has the same end result. My point in all of this has been that non-tendering Villar to save money isn't some preposterous outcome. It's very defensible, and it's possible that no other team wants to touch him at his arb-salary while giving up anything of potential future value in return.
    • I think Luke's pretty high on Cumberland.  But other than that I generally agree with your take.
    • Major leagues definitely needs the minor leagues.  Players don't go from college straight to MLB.  Scrimmages are not going to make you major league ready.  It would cost them even more money to have games without fans. Plus how much would it cost to shuttle players back  and forth from Florida to say Detroit?   I think you are truly under estimating the value minor league baseball provides to MLB. I think this is all about the lawsuit from minor league players saying they are being paid below minimum wage.  I guess a simpler solution is lower the amount of bonuses you pay drafted players and increase salaries.  That would make the pay more equitable.  And provide housing for the players.  And cater their food.     
    • I hate to ruin this guy’s narrative, but Kevin Goldstein is hardly one of the “young finance and Wall Street bros.”    I don’t know exactly how old he is, but he’s got a 21-year old son, and so far as I know, he has no background on Wall Street or finance, having previously been a long-standing scouting guru for Baseball Prospectus.   And, he didn’t “immediately” send out his email after getting hired; he’d been working for the Astros for 5 years at that point.   
    • Just based on the eye test, this is the best team in football.  They are a more complete team than anyone else.  You do worry about Jackson getting injured, but I think every player other than Brady (somehow, in spite of his middle age) is susceptible to injury at any given time.  Just looking at the schedule, I think the Ravens will get the 2 seed.  It isn't that they can't win their last 6, because they can.  I just don't think New England is losing any more games.  The Patriots are not the Patriots of old and their final 15-1 record will be more indicative of their fortunate scheduling (having Dallas and KC at home helps a lot, as does 6 games against a pathetic division).  The Chiefs are not beating the Ravens twice, especially if the game is in Baltimore.  And no other AFC team is capable of winning in New England in January.  So I think it comes down to yet another Ravens-Patriots showdown in Mass.  The good news is this may be the only franchise not scared of the Patriots "aura and mystique," but they will have to beat them twice.  Hard to do. 
    • So baseball want in increase their fanbase and tweak the game, and keep current fans, bring back old fans, and attract new fans. So you go and screw with everybody minor league system.  
    • My granddaddy shot a 72 on his 72nd birthday. I shot a 60 back on my 60th, those rotating ducks was no match for me.
