Mancini Trade Package

So you’re saying offensively he’s similar to Gordon?    Not a terrible analogy, I suppose, though Gordon has more plate discipline.    Gordon’s been all over the place offensively in his career, so it’s a little hard to know which version of Gordon we’re comparing him to.  

Yes, except for the speed. Moderate pop for an OF with a decent batting average. Take away the stellar defense though and I think it makes him a very mediocre player. Another comp would be a poor man's Adam Jones without the defense.

Getting rid of Trumbo will make it simpler.  Mancini can play 1b and make Davis the  DH although they can switch out at times.   Unless ownership agrees to eat Davis contract..unlikely for 2019 at least, imho.

I don't think Mancini is any better defensively at first than Chris Davis.

Yes, well that will be the least of our problems going forward.

Maybe this would be the time to see if Mancini can be a productive hitter while dhing unlike Trumbo, who hit much better when playing in the field.

All I'm saying is that Trey will be a solid player...the Salmon comp wasn't supposed to be a statistical one...i was using the analogy to say Mancini might be a Salmon type player...beloved by his home fans and not really well known around the league. And by the way, even if I over stated Mancini in his comparison to Tim, who's to say I'm absolutely wrong...we don't know what the future will bring. Its still only his second full season, and Trey could get stronger, smarter as a hitter and become a 30 HR a year guy. If Im wrong....who cares? SUE ME.

He should not step foot in the outfield again in his career. Very solid player as a DH/1B and easy to root for but I have no faith in him having much value if Buck is still the manager and still putting him in the OF.

That's called "turning the pitch inside-out."

And over the rightfield wall!

He has absolutely trended up. Since not having to pretend that he is a left fielder.

I actually think we see more than one 30 HR seasons from Mancini. His 162-game pace in his career is 27 so it's not unrealistic to think he goes to 31 or 32 a couple times. That said, 30 HRs today is more like 20 HRs of yesteryear. The pop with a career .323 OBP still leaves him as a solid-to-good hitter at a position where you really need to be well above average with the bat to offer real value.

I think, ultimately, with Mancini we have a solid 6-hole hitter on a good team. That's not great, but certainly has value.

Certainly has value. As a DH.
