I didn't realize "this site" was supposed to have a collective opinion or that in this age there was such a thing as an "acceptable batting average."

.230 - With an .800 OPS and not for a SSS.

But Broxton is better than Mullins was supposed to be...

Broxton wasn’t on the team in February. I suspect you wouldn’t have seen that post if he was on the team. I just wasn’t excited to watch Joey Rickard play replacement to slightly below replacement level baseball for the third straight season.

If a guy hits a ton of singles but has no power and doesn't walk should we be impressed with his 320 BA?

I guess that depends on what else he does.  You basically described Ichiro.

Also Tony Gwynn who only had one season when he drew more than 60 walks and had a career ISO of .121.

I don't look at batting average except in passing.  I'm more worried about wOBA.

I mean if a guy can hit for power and get on base, do we really care how many singles he hits?  If a guy hits a ton of singles but has no power and doesn't walk should we be impressed with his 320 BA?

Gwynn: .338/.388/.459, 132 OPS+

Ichiro: .311/.355/.402, 107 OPS+

Alberto (2019): .303/.320/.388, 91 OPS+

They are not really very similar.   Also, with Ichiro you sort of have to adjust for the fact that he hung around into his mid-40’s.

Related question: would you rather have a modern baseball 91 OPS+, say 2015/17 Chris Davis with a .200/.300/.420 line, or a 91 OPS+ throwback Alberto line of .303/.330/.390?  I think I'd take Alberto, even if the production is roughly equal.  More action, less standing and watching and walking around.

I think you can look at this two ways:

1.    Which is more aesthetically pleasing and fun to watch?   I’d have to go with Alberto there.   

2.   Which is likely to generate more runs?   Alberto wins again, since OBP>SLG in a properly weighted wOBA type analysis, and H/PA should be weighted more heavily than BB/PA in that same analysis.   

So, in that example, no question I’d go with the Alberto line.   

Now, if the example had been jiggered in such a way that one was more aesthetically pleasing but the other yielded more runs, I’d have gone with the latter.    It’s all about runs, baby.

Sisco double, what do we do with Adley? 

Shouldn't we wait until he signs first before we worry about it?

It looks like he has a very quick swing. If he can continue to get on base and show any modicum of power, he could be a productive major leaguer.

It seems a bit unfortunate that Sisco would hit his double right after the draft. Maybe we can let Adley go unsigned & give Gunnar 8 million overs lot. We could have had Bledlay or Priester — Sisco isn’t an OF or SP, this should have been obvious.

Everyone thinking what I'm thinking?  Yup... Severino at SS and Sisco at 2B.
