Fangraphs has him at 1.9 last year which is where I got league averagish from. Sure he’s been valuable relative to cost but I’m certainly not planning my future around a guy who was a below average offensive player even in a year he hit .305. High average, slap hitters who don’t walk are simply too volatile and too low ceiling. He’s fine, but I’m not penciling in Hanser Alberto as a long term everyday player on the next contending Orioles team.
Viruses weren't even discovered until 1926. Limiting our thinking today to fit our ignorance of 100 years ago is no absolute justification for anything, whether related to baseball or anything else. If it were, you should give up the smart phone and internet connection.
That supports my impression that there hasn’t been much in the way of a shift in strategy so far. It’s just that the odds have been changed. Maybe that will adjust as folks get used to things. Still, (if we have to do it) I would prefer something that might more aggressively force a radical change of approach in extra innings. Like (in seriousness) getting rid of a position player for each inning past 9, or adjusting the strikes needed for a k, or the balls needed for a BB. Or, if you have a robo ump, the size of the strike zone.
