Fangraphs: Orioles have good reason to be excited about Trey Mancini

Odd that they can't pinpoint a reason for the improvement.

Folks already have. Plenty of evidence of swing changes. But don't let that stop your weird agenda.

Did you read the article or did you just want to take a shot at me first?

The shot one, honestly.

I hope someday an Oriole will be worthy of your fandom.

By the way, is anyone else getting messages on Fangraphs saying “your iPhone has been compromised,” etc.?

Hijack ads are really bad on Fangraphs from mobile.

What do you think the reason is? Are you not buying what he's said about working on his swing? Or the evidence thereof?

Between that and their constant begging for $20, their site is a pain to use.    But I like the content often enough.

At least you're honest about your motivation.

Could you remind me what the evidence is (other than better results)?    I think you may have cited something before but I don’t remember where or what it said.  

As for me, it could just be a hot first half like he had in 2017, or it could be something more sustainable.    If you believe the old adage that it takes about 1500 plate appearances to become a mature major league hitter, Trey is about there (1560 PA).

I actually gave them $50 last month. I figured I use the site often. It’s really something I should be paying for.

I probably should too, to be honest.   Just haven’t done it yet.   

By the way, I saw that they have added service time and options remaining info to the player pages.   The latter will certainly be useful, since BB-ref doesn’t have it and I’d rather get it from Fangraphs than Roster Resource (which has now affiliated with Fangraphs, apparently).   https://blogs.fangraphs.com/instagraphs/milb-options-service-time-and-updated-contracts-are-now-on-player-pages/

Meh.  

Honestly, just wanted to take a shot at you too.  Not that you care.

K rate down 4%, BB% up slightly, Hard% up nearly 4%, Line Drive% up 5%, less pull happy and a juiced ball. All things that spell better results.

    • Bleier trade continues to bite the O's last night.  Fry  could not find the plate especially against right-handed batters. Needing to face three batter in not Fry's game.    It didn't affect the outcome because the O's didin't  hit.  However, Fry does not look up to being the 2nd lefties in the pen  which shows how much the O's miss Bleier.  Fry would be a candidate to be sent down but there is no lefty to replace him so he will probably stay in the majors.
    • SummerSlam ‘92 is on FS1.  Quarantine + Nostalgia = Mullet for backwardsk ?
    • I missed another game. My sleep schedule sleep patterns are SOOOOOOOO screwed up... I laid down for a quick nap before the game about 4:30. When I woke up at MIDNIGHT I had missed the entire thing. Turned on the TV to watch the 11:30 replay and THANK GOD the Gnats are back playing! They're the replay tonight... fml     So.... I'm not going to read the thread or the board. Or Roch. It's 1:30 am. I'm having my "morning" glass of coffee (yes BIG TALL GLASS) and I'm going to watch the 9 am MASN replay "live". So I have THAT going for me. 🙃 GO O'S!!!!
    • And now for something completely different...   NSFW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpx_VXRG_qc  
    • Now that does make sense: greater risk, greater reward. So do healthy pitchers make more than healthy batters? Serious question.
    • On his pro-rated salary, Cobb would earn @ $4.5MM the rest of this season. That would be nothing for a contending team to take on if they were sold on him putting them over the top. But I can't imagine being so desperate on August 4, 10 games into a 60 game season if I were a decision maker to take on the entirety of his contract.  If a team really wants to gamble a little bit of cash on Cobb to win this year's WS, they may be wrangled into taking half the burden on the 2021 salary, while the Orioles pay half of this season's $4.5MM remaining. This is starting to sound too good to be true!
