-0.1 rWAR. 

He had a bad drop yesterday.

One out above average per Baseball Savant.

He is fine defensively. He may look oafish, but he is fine.

 

No he is not "fine." This is a perfect example of when the "stats" distort reality. He has had numerous bad drops. He got away with one on Saturday that should have been his second error of the game.

You're right. The stats are wrong and your eyes are right.

It's like seeing a 5-foot waves and being told, "Nope, surf forecast says 2-foot waves. Don't believe what you are riding." 

Sorry I have actually been watching the games and not just quoting sss metrics.

Remember when folks thought Davis was pretty good in the outfield because he looked smooth out there?

Good times.

The folks were, of course, incorrect.

I get it, that drop the other night was bad and it is hard to forget the ball hitting him in the head. That is why we have defensive stats. Because your mind plays tricks on you. He is fine.

Right. The rest of us only read metrics and don't watch games. He is fine.

And Sisco is a fine defensive catcher.

And until tonight, Dean Kremer is a sub 2.00 ERA pitcher.

Hey man, Derek Jeter won 5 Gold Gloves. The stats must be wrong.

The first thing is not and has never been backed up by defensive stats. What is also not backed up by stats is that but that a lot of people swore was true, is that Severino is a good defensive catcher. I got into several arguments about that last year, and this year the eye test seemed to catch up with the advanced stats and I haven't heard nearly as much debate to that point.

The second was factually accurate, but clearly not a guarantee of future success. I don't know what type of point you think you are making.

Dude, he fell down making both of those catches.

How about you find one where he stays on his feet?

Stewart is terrible defensively and uncoordinated regardless of the attempt that current stats try to qualify talent. He's had five plays since Saturday that would embarrass a player at any level. But, sure, hang your hat on sss and misleading stats. He'll prove you wrong in the end.

I love defense stats and I’m a big believer. But they take a long time to normalize, and the eye test is also meaningful. Stewart is faster than he looks, but he does look clumsy, he doesn’t seem to follow the ball well, he appears to get late jumps, plays the ball poorly off the wall, and doesn’t seem to have a strong or accurate arm. His actual errors have been pretty egregious, but in addition to those, he doesn’t seem comfortable in right. It’s early days yet, and of course he needs time to work out the kinks, and the stats will normalize and be more accurate.

I don’t know which traits can be fixed with time and practice, and which traits are what they are( he’s certainly not going to get any faster, for instance) So I don’t know how much he can improve and in which areas, but for now, we have to hope he does improve.

Regarding catchers, ours are BAD. But they hit, and so no one cares... I wish someone would.

    • The same that you could put on any oline that had to deal with 5 to 7 players every play! Its the Ravens fault for not leaving the pistol formation that would allow the screen and more passes to be there. There were open receivers that Lamar missed. But, the formation again didn't help. The bolded part! He's the QB and they shoulder the load good or bad. In our case he's in control either passing or QB running 66% of the time. So its going to be more on him than on an offense that throws and runs 50/50. The drops didn't help but that happens some times to all teams
    • Ok ...Thanks   So I am not sure he's referring to injury. Even if he's not seriously injured running Quarterbacks dont tend to age well is the poster's point.   Vick played until he was 35 but wasn't a full time starter after 32. I think is pretty safe to assume you cant count on after 32. But that doesn't even matter right now.  
    • Its a good point the OP makes, there are a lot of question marks and I would suspect these teams aren't done yet either.  There is a reason the MFY just freed up $10 in space with the Ottavino trade.  They also have German and Montgomery who could help.
    • With the broadcast team announced...  Palmer, Brown, McDonald... okay! Arnold, Hollander, Long, Newman...  meh.  We'll give them some time. Garceau... my soul died a little.
    • Assuming most of the good Bowie pitchers have to try to do Norfolk world domination before maybe an Akin/Kremer sized sip, would anyone want Jake Arrieta at ANY price for the Sutcliffe things? Floor starting pitchers with little October upside are the one group (Happ, Quintana, Lester) of players falling far short of Fangraphs guesses among recent signees.   I somewhat suspect no one very good really wants 2021 Arrieta pitching for them, but as ever...we may have a job for some qualified major leaguer. He'd be more entertaining than a Milone clone, but does the regime feel he's anyone for Kremer, Akin, etc. to be around (non-Cobb category) for a year.
    • I agree with all of your points.  Flacco was 27 when we won the Super Bowl. That's 3 full years away for Lamar FWIW
    • How much of this can you put on the O-line and lack of separation by receivers?  I feel like he shoulders so much pressure with the "If I don't make the play, no one will" attitude, that yes he does tend to hold onto the ball too long instead of throwing it away.   What about the two HUGE drops by Dobbins wide open in space?  That first drop was game changing in my opinion.   People love the traditional stand back in the pocket and sling it everywhere QB.  Which is why everyone now loves Josh Allen.  People love to pile on Lamar for being 1-3 in the playoffs.  Josh Allen is 2-2.  Lamar has an MVP to his name at 24 (Josh played at an MVP level this year).  He was awful in that Chiefs playoff game.  I imagine Josh Allen will be looking to get paid this offseason as well.  Market shows he will be in the same 35-40 million dollar range, now that Watson signed the deal in Houston. Hard to say you are getting less than all of these other QB's that, in theory have produced equally, or less than Lamar has.  I get it and the thought process.  But, its either pay the man or risk being awful, while attempting to find your next franchise QB.     I pay the man.
