Watching BP today, a couple things stood out. Chris Davis' BP is not even good, Rio Ruiz has less raw power than I expected, & Richie Martin has more raw power than I expected but won't hit many due to his swing path. Mullins needs to give up RH batting as well.

Renato Nunez may be batting .133/.611OPS but he leads the team in EV (95.5), Hard Hit% (60%) and is 2nd to Mancini in xWOBA (.426), xBA (.271) and xSLG (.614). The "x" stats take EV and launch angles to determine the expected stats based on how they hit the ball.

Cant wait to see these fast guys run on Sanchez. I thought we were going to try and steal some bases this season.

I think it makes sense to go with Nunez and give up on Ruiz.  Frankly, Ruiz hasn't shown much defensively, either - despite a good defensive rep.  Remember, he got beat out in Atlanta by players like Adonis Garcia - who was awful defensively - and Jace Peterson.  But... he does have a very cool name that kinda sounds like a most excellent poster here.

Someone named Rio posts here?

Nunez has the highest EV in either starting lineup, edging out Judge by 0.1!

Meoli from the Sun in a feisty mood today. Also complained about the pregame playlist. 

It just seems incongruous with the idea that right after mentioning the rebuild and the new front office, the second thing Jim Hunter touted about the organization on the field is Kids Cheer Free. But what do I know?

    • What a horrific article.  If you want to call it that.  If you clicked all the way to the end you deserve some kind of perverse medal for enduring pain for no apparent reason. And it's interesting to note that there were no terrible defenders prior to about 1995.  Or at least not among the catchers and a few first basemen, which is as far as I got. (In reality almost all of the worst MLB defenders of all time would have played over 100 years ago.) Also, with any list of worst Major Leaguers there should be a huge caveat: these are the worst defensive players who were allowed to play this position in the major leagues after having been selected as one of the very best overall players in youth baseball, high school, college and the minors.  Except for maybe the guys at first and left field, they were all chosen by their teams to play this position despite the option of moving them down to an easier position or DHing them, meaning that their team's assessment of their abilities was that playing them there was better for the team than doing something else.  The teams that played Ed Taubensee or Ryan Doumit at catcher were doing so because they believed that was the most productive alignment of their teams.
    • Did not know that. At one time, their extended family also had a sub shop in Gambrills, but sold off a few years ago and has gone out of business. I think my family in florida would disagree with you about taste, but its all good. On a positive note, Im hearing from friends that the crabbing coming out of the bay here, is looking pretty good. very good size and flavor.
    • The Olive Grove is owned by the same family as G&M. I believe the guys are brothers. Most of their menu is Italian so they really dont compete for the same dollar.   The Maryland way of cooking crabs with Old Bay is certainly unique and I agree that there is really nothing close. But, there is no difference between Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab and Louisiana or Texas blue crab. Except the crabs coming up from there tend to be larger than what is being harvested here and mainly because they are more plentiful in the gulf. Another thought is they probably have a different sluff cycle than Maryland due to the water temperature. The Lousiana fishery is actually a bay thats attached to the gulf but a bit further north and likely cooler water than the gulf itself.
    • Not a grammar specialist but shouldn't you have used "whom"?  😉. I'm here for being reprimanded by "TEECHUR".
    • The Olive Grove is just down the road from G&M, and I hear they are as good, but cant say, as we never ventured there. My family is from here and well versed in cooking crabs the "Maryland" way, and like you said, its not the same thing.  
    • Sunset is another good place!    For all of the G&M hate by Beefsupreme, When I go there they are always very busy  and as you pass the tables to your seat most/many are eating the crab cakes.    It kind of reminds me of the claim that people made years ago that they could tell the difference between Maryland Blue Crab and Louisiana Blue Crab. Just just can’t .... it’s plain and simple.
    • Shoreline Seafood Company in Crofton MD.....available year round   I would take them every holiday to my parents in Jacksonville Florida every Christmas. They pack them with ice packs in a styrofoam insulated box. I also added crab meat and or soft crabs to the container.    They definitely ship them!   http://shorelineseafoodinc.com
