Mancini Trade Package

I don’t think draft status matters much to fans.    The pundits seem to be the ones who have trouble getting past it.    

Mancini’s a solid hitter, without question.    The main issue is whether he can take it to a level beyond last year.     I agree he’s looked good so far this year and that his stats don’t reflect how hard he’s hit the ball.

Eh, I think it matters.  Hype matters to fans, which comes from the pundits.  I mean, fans are excited about Acuna and that comes from reading the hype train.

I think it matters up to them being say a year in the league.  No one cares that Joey Votto was a second round pick or that Max Scherzer was chosen in the 11th round.

Once you establish that you can or can't play draft status is done.

Pedro Alvarez was drafted in the first round, #2 overall!

How lucky are we to have him, eh?

 

Timmy went 1-1.  Picked ahead of Posey!

Not really, Mancini's first full year was last year.  There was a decent amount of speculation heading into this year if he was a mirage or if he could maintain or maybe even better.  That is due to the lack of draft status and hype.

I certainly don’t think he’s a mirage, as in a flash in the pan who will be out of the majors in a couple years.  But I could see him being either an .850 OPS guy or a .775 guy going forward.    And it certainly matters which he is.

I don't think it has much to do with draft status and hype.  He switched positions at the ML level and the views on his performance are mixed.  I think any new player who puts up a 1-2.5 win year in his rookie campaign is still going to be questioned going forward.

I think that was mainly his defense that brought him down overall. He had almost 3 bWAR if you take out his defense last year

It was.  But there is no guarantee he improves.

In terms of bat or defense? I've seen defensive improvement outside of the hickup in Houston from him.

You think the defensive metrics were not accurate on him?

Dan cares. The latest in his stable of obscure former #1 picks: Jace Peterson.

I think they were a tad bit negative, as we’ve seen with Jones and a few other players across MLB. His defense is average at best

Mancini is horrible out there.  Trumbo is bad as well.  Hopefully next year neither is playing outfield for us.

    • I guess the O's hadn't used the cheating technology yet.        
    • Does Cashner require an MLB deal?  Colon would at least draw some press. 
    • I think that was a great win.  Indiana scored on every single trip down the floor to start the second half.  It had to be 13 times down and 13 scores.  Even when they missed, they got the offensive rebound and scored.  I don't think they even made any free throws in that stretch.....it was all made baskets. Sometimes, the other team just decides to try harder and stops missing shots and they did a great job.  This had loss written all over it, so I have to give credit to the Terps for winning a game that they should have lost....which is very rare in the Turge era. 
    • I did in fact create a spreadsheet.     As mentioned, many of the pitchers were on the BA list more than once.    So, I've sorted them into four buckets according to the highest ranking they attained. BA 1-25:  30 pitchers achieved this level, and that group averaged 12.5 rWAR.     Of the 31 pitchers I categorized as "reliable starters," from this bucket you have four of the No. 1 Studs (Kershaw, Price, Strasburg and Bumgarner), one of the Solid No. 2's (Teheran), two of the Mid-Rotation guys (Buchholz and Porcello) and eight of the Middle/Back of Rotation guys (Bailey, Anderson, Tillman, Cahill, M. Perez, Hellickson, Moore and Wheeler).    So, that's 15 of the 30 who became reliable starting pitchers by my definition.  Two of the Stud Relievers, Davis and Chapman, also came from this bucket. BA 26-50: 26 pitchers achieved this level and the group averaged 7.3 rWAR.    The group includes one No. 1 Stud (Cueto), four Solid No. 2's (Gonzalez, Carrasco, Zimmermann and Chacin), one Mid-Rotation guy (Kennedy) and three Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Jurrjens, Holland and Gibson).    Nine out of 26 became reliable starters.   Stud reliever Britton also came from this category. BA 51-75: 23 pitchers reached this level, averaging 6.1 rWAR.   They include one No. 1 Stud (Scherzer), one Solid No. 2 (Arrieta), one Mid-Rotation guy (Leake), and two Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Niese and Cashner).   5 of 23 became reliable starters. BA 76-100: 20 pitchers were in this bucket.    Only two became reliable starters: Samardzija in the Mid-Rotation category and Jonathan Niese in the Mid/Back of Rotation category. Hall and Rodriguez both fall into the second bucket for now, though it's possible they could move up in future years.
