Good solid catch but I thought the chest thumping was a bit much. Act like you make that catch every time because you should. It's not like he saved Game 7.

That was more than a good solid catch and it's far from caught every time.

That’s easily a 4 star catch.

Awesome catch, and personally, I love the passion. Did someone post the statcast catch probability on that? I haven't seen it yet.

Buck allowed AJ10 to carry on with the pie stuff, which I always though was beyond silly. I couldn't stand watching the post game pies. Beating on the chest after making a great catch, that's not my idea of baseball. Especially 100 loss baseball.

booooo. Loved the pies.

Yeah he totally should have robbed a homer and instantly thought "Man, I wish we were over .500 so I could be excited by that." and thrown the ball in. 🙄

Why even try to catch it in the first place when you are under .500?

Fine play by Hays. Obviously VGJR had no issue with the enthusiasm. In fact, if you look closely as the camera switched to Ynoa, you see VGJR running right past him, and it looked like they had a quick lighthearted exchange as well.

Lol, you guys have been too used to Wilkerson/Santander/old Jones.

I did not say that that ball is caught every time, but you should act like you expect to catch it. It was a catchable ball and he caught it. 

I am very excited that he appears to be a bona fide CF, something we haven't had in several years. To the eye test, he may be just as fast as Mullins but gets way better jumps, going back as well as coming in. If we can finally move on from Mancini in the OF, I am excited to have an improved defense out there with guys who can catch the ball at all three positions.

@Ohfan67I hope you didn't think I was being serious and that is why I got downvoted. If you did think that was serious...yikes 😂. Not that I really care about the votes.

I think Mullins is still better at getting to the ball.     But Hays looks like a credible CF out there, and of course his arm is far superior.

MLB Network had it as a four star big deal. I'd say you are in the minority on this one.

Looking at Hays’ Statcast stats, he is one for two in four-star catch opportunities, so I assume last night’s play is the four-star catch he’s made.   A four-star catch is defined as a play where the odds of the ball being caught are between 26-50%.     Five star catches are made 0-25% of the time.   Hays is 0-2 on those.    He’s 100% on 1-3 star catches.    I think the four-star catch he missed was the one where he got a late break coming in on the ball, made a headlong dive, and actually gloved it a few inches off the ground but the impact of hitting the ground jarred it loose.

    • Houston has also been able to acquire arms late in the draft or cheaply in the international market and develop them into trade assets. I'm prepping for Rule 5 draft stuff and it's unbelievable how many good arms they have in the minors that came out of nowhere (10+ round pick or older international signees). They all throw hard and miss bats. 
    • Hopefully the Nats finish this thing off today.  They have gone I think 81-40 since starting 19-31.  That is remarkable.  The Cardinals do what they always do in October....overachieve.  Thankfully, they are about to get stuffed by the much better team.  This will be a really good WS matchup regardless of who comes out of the AL. 
    • Eh, I don't really buy that in this case.  Liberatore is a lefty, has better mechanics, and more projection remaining, so I think there is a fair case for Liberatore then and now. It's really close though, Rodriguez is the better pitch at the moment, but no one really cares who is the better pitcher at 19 in low A ball. 
    • The old Liberatore vs Rodriguez debate. I think most “experts” will always try and rank Liberatore slightly higher than Rodriguez because they all criticized the O’s for “reaching” for Rodriguez. 
    • Someone pointed out before that Vaughn got pitched around his last year in NCAA. Let’s see what happens to Torkelson when/if he gets that treatment.  I don’t see how we could draft Torkelson.  Even if we trade Mancini, Mountcastle is still likely a 1B.  When team building I don’t think you pencil in your future 1B and DH spots first.   I’d like to see us draft a bat, but if the best SP is available then I’m open to that. I think that bats are safer picks and would help the system more.  Hopefully Detroit makes a mistake at 1:1 and we get the player Elias thinks is #1 overall. Lots of baseball to play till the draft. 
    • HOU got burned with taking Pitchers Appel and Aiken high. HOU has been grow the bats and buy the arms since then. Using their prospect bats to acquire proven SP.  I do think bats are safer picks over pitchers. Last draft we took lots of bats compared to pitchers. It could’ve been lots of factors at play, but I think it was a strategic decision.  Not having the number one pick in next years’ draft means we’ll likely be deciding on the 2nd best SP, Torkelson, or other NCAA and HS bats.    
    • I hope Buck gets the Phillies job.
