O’s claim IF Hanser Alberto from Yankees; DFA Susac

Recommended Posts

Alberto got profiled this week by the Statcast podcast guys - skills wise, he seems to be good-ish at the sweetspot launch angle (between 8 and 32 degrees), but is literally in the bottom couple percent of Hard Hit rate and exit velocity.  They suggested outfielders might start going all Billy Hamilton shallow on him if he keeps hitting enough for teams to really pay attention.

In the category of small samples, he's a few weeks away from perhaps joining an astonishing cohort.  He is hitting about .420 against LHP, one of the Top Four seasons ever if he can keep it there.  His fraternity for Best AVG v. LHP in a qualifying season would be Stan Musial, Mickey Mantle and Buster Posey.

I actually don't remember those unis, which remind me more of the WSox than the Orange & Black, of course.

This clip reminds me of why I'm not as negative about Belle's time in Baltimore as many other posters seem to be. He was an extremely determined player, a warrior on a team that also had Cal. I almost wonder if he was faking not getting HBP so that he could have a chance to wreak vengeance on the Angels with his 4th homer of the game--or to accomplish something like Frank did when he hit the ball completely out of Memorial Stadium after Tiant had dusted him twice.

The uniform was a one game thing. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/13778435/uni-watch-friday-flashback-baseball-turns-ahead-clock-1999

(most/possibly all of them were hot garbage)
