Here are some Galvis/Iglesias projections:
ZipS: Iglesias .296/.326/.428, Galvis .246/.300/.382
Steamer: Iglesias .278/.311/.399, Galvis .238/.294/.387
ATC: Iglesias .279/314/.398, Galvis .239/.295/.395
THE BAT: Iglesias .279/.318/.399, Galvis .236/.291/.388
THE BATX: Iglesias .274/.314/.384, Galvis .238/.291/.388
Marcel: Iglesias .279/.322/.418, Galvis .242/.299/.409
So, Iglesias in the .698 - .754 OPS range, Galvis in the .679-.708 range.
By the way, I’ve never heard of ATC, THE BAT or THE BATX. But Fangraphs is publishing them, so I listed them.
Once again we get these periodic updates that I have no comprehension of the meaning. This court says this, this one says that, etc.
Do we have any bottom line as to when MASN will have to cut a check to the Nats and how much it will be? Otherwise, this might as well be written in Greek for all I get out of it.
I’m violating Tony’s “don’t bump old threads” rule because it’s interesting to go back and see how patient our posters said they would be in 2018 when Elias took the job. My sense is that many of the natives are beginning to get restless.
Right now Elias is just about on pace with where I thought he’d be by now, though the short major league season and non-existent minor league season last year makes things a little harder to judge.
I do think that Elias will need to switch gears after this season. I’m not expecting a contender in 2022 but I do think the team will need to show very significant improvement to indicate that the rebuild has traction. Of course, I’m hoping to see improvement this year, but my guess is our winning percentage will be stagnant from last year, maybe even slightly down (we were on a 67.5 win pace, but fading badly in the last 25-30 games).
I think a lot of us (me included) predicted the O's would sign Galvis to a contract somewhat similar to what he signed. Where a bunch of us disagree is whether or not he's at the same level as Iglesias. Granted, until last year there probably wasn't much difference, and last year was a very short season. However, last year is the best we got for predicting what they'll do in the future. I hope he proves me wrong, but I don't expect that Galvis will play at Iglesias' level.
