Was Villar good?
Overall, he was very frustrating.He drove me nuts.
Who is good?
Puig is not a bad player, Though there have certainly been multiple comments about his attitude, but signing him will not give us a “trade chip” because anybody who wants him can sign him now, and he certainly isn’t going to get more valuable after 25 games with the Orioles.
It’s much better to give playing time to the guys who have a future, and let them develop, or to the guys who have no future, and give them a reward for their hard work.
I was surprised to see Nick Markakis and Manny Machado tied at an average of 91.2 mph, ranked #32 and #33, overall.
Shocked to see Mike Trout down at #50. Guess he has some extra special voodoo in his bat.
Yeah but you got your "point" mixed up. If his slugging was .475, Iglesias and his .315 OBA would be a perfectly reasonable 6th-hole hitter. It's not a matter of his OBA. It's not a matter of Iglesias not being known for his bat. Nor is it a matter of "the O's batting order is so bad that a hitter with a career 315 OBP should hit sixth." (emphasis: mine)
Meanwhile, Iglesias' .371 lifetime SP is higher than Ruiz's and Severino's.
I doubt Iglesias will hit sixth in many games.
Episode 3 of The Secret Monkey Quarantine Half Hour Show, featuring our guests this week, Daniel & Danny Chavis of The Veldt, a pioneering African-American psychedelia-soul outfit from Raleigh NC.
Our song to kick off the show was a cover of The Cowsills' "The Rain, The Park & Other Things" culled from video from 2 shows we did just prior to the stay-at-home orders and one from a driveway concert we played for our neighbors as they watched from their yards.
