Great catch by Stewart, non-goober outfielder.

Hopefully everyone saw that.

The Stewart catch is up at MLB.com if anyone wants to watch it again.

If Gurriel hadn't been jogging he might have gotten an extra based on the bobble.

If Gurriel had hustled he might have made 3rd when Hays couldn't pick up the ball right away.

Hays was just baiting him trying to rack up another assist.

Not quite as good a catch as Stevie Wilkerson's in RF on the last day of the season last year.

Just a year ago but seems forever.  Gary Thorne on the call, fans in the stands...

So if I understand it correctly Toronto will be the #8 seed and go to Tampa unless they win, and the Yankees lose.  Then Toronto would be the 5 seed and play the AL Central runner-up, and the Yankees would be the 8 seed.

Marlins just went up 3-0 on the Yankees.

Crazy how Sisco starts hot every year and then cools off.

Still had a better year than Severino.

His defense has looked better to me, but that may be affected by my seeing a lot of Severino's defense.

Is Rutschman expected to be a true switch-hitter,  equally effective (or close to it) from both sides, or does he have a strong side that should be taken in to account when thinking about back-up catchers?

    • Lets look at both Santander and Nunez offensively at 26 years old Season WOBA WOBACON Barrel % Hard Hit % Exit Velo XBA XSLG XWOBA XWOBACON Renato Nunez .341 .453 12.1 36.4 86.3 .228 .433 .301 .388 Anthony Santander .358 .404 10.2 36.7 88.6 .286 .510 .338 .378 MLB AVG .317 .370 6.4 34.9 88.3 .250 .414 .321 .376 They are not significantly different though Santander is ahead in the most important OBA and especially XWOBA categories.  The key here is defensively value and cost. Santander is a switch hitting plus defensive RFer while Nunez is a DH. If Nunez played any position effectively, he'd be offered arbitration. Santander's issues have been staying healthy and he doesn't walk much, but then again, he doesn't strike out all that much either. Overall, Santander is a more valuable player than Nunez and this is coming from a guy who think Nunez is worth more than obviously the rest of baseball does.
    • Late to this thread but here's mine. Santander I don't expect any more than he gave us this year before he got hurt. But that's ok. A whole healthy year, that's a solid MLer. Hays... health is the biggest question. Total wrench in the gears. In a full year I would expect BIG things from him. He's not going to hit 30 HRs, but he might hit 30+ doubles and steal 30 bases. Play a stellar CF. I like Austin a lot! For a CFer he's what you want, a take charge guy. If there's a Bermuda Triangle pop up, and he can get to it, he will scream out and call everyone off. I noticed that from his first few games up. Not intimidated when he hit the bigs.
    • The original recording has a girl speaking Spanish in the background in a sexy voice. Like 40% the volume of Burdon. At one point she says in English "Are you listening to this?" Right after 3 minutes in. This 45... on the MGM label!  
    • YouTube came up with another of my favorites. That I have history with. 40 years ago my sisters and my cousins would listen to this 45 record endlessly! I was blown away by this song at 11 or 12 years old. Then 20ish years ago I found this live video online and was blown away a second time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3i0DMbCKnAg click it
    • I don't know how other folks classify this... avant garde? To me this is Punk. Like Devo. An influence on Devo!  
    • Then what makes you think another team would give us value for him?
