Trying to Salvage a Game (vs. D-RAYS, 7/03)

I think Richard has more chance of being productive than Broxton.

Rickard (849 AB)

.245/.299/.372/.671
OPS+: 81
WAR: 1.2


Broxton (840 AB)

.214/.300/.395/.695
OPS+: 82
WAR: 3.3


So, based on what? Almost the same amount of ABs. Broxton almost triple the WAR of Rickard and has better tools. That's probably Rickard's ceiling. If Broxton's contact tool is a little better, he's likely a starter. He's really one average tool away from it. Don't see your basis in saying that. Broxton has been better than Rickard in almost the same number of ABs.

Anyway, don't get the love affair with Rickard. He wasn't good and couldn't have gotten much better. Broxton at least has potential in that area, but doesn't look like he will realize it due to his very poor contact tool. Broxton was completely worth the flier. Nothing at all wrong with trying.

Pham just pulled a Davis right there. How you don't swing there is beyond me. Armstrong made a fantastic pitch but man....what are you doing?

 Of course Broxton isn’t part of the future, but I think he shouldn’t be part of the present either.

On this team this year, he's not hurting anything. The closer to another 1:1 we can get, the better IMO.

That was a really nice strike.  

Shut up, Hunter. Stop acting like it's a playoff game.

With the way the O's CFs have played this year, they probably should have brought back Jones if he had interested in returning. He could have at least been a cheap one-year stopgap measure.
