I’m kind of bummed that Mullins didn’t get a nomination.  Third in the AL in outs above average.

This! Good on Tony! And not undeserved imo either. He's much better than was expected. Better speed and better routes, and he CAUGHT what he got to..

Congrats to Anthony!

Too bad Iglesias missed such a big chunk of the season.

 

Maybe next year. Finishing on a different team?

Defensive stats are all over the place. And some are more important for one position than for others, of course. Which ones are the most revealing? I personally care less about range, which can be assisted with good intel and preparatory placement, than I do about being sure handed, and I’m more interested in accuracy on throws than brute strength. So what are the best defensive stats?

The competition in CF is pretty fierce.

Outfield is such a delicate balance. There were a couple years where Markakis could handle anything off the scoreboard or near the grounds crew bench and Jones had a terrific ability to range back to the 410 in center. I’m not sure what the metrics say about it, but outfield seems to have a lot to do with who is next to you, especially with those two. 
 

Santander was fun to watch this year, I can’t remember him making a bad play.

Definitely surprised! He just doesn’t pass the eye test for me as I’ve stated before. I guess looking shaky doesn’t matter if he still catches the ball.

I remember an error by Santander in the first game of the season.Joey Gallo accumulated 12 DRS in RF for the Rangers, best among MLB outfielders( and second-best overall behind Arenado) but he did it in 57 games.
Santander had 8 DRS in only 37 games. I don’t know how DRS is calculated, but 8 in 37 extrapolates to 12 in 55 so they maybe weren’t as far apart as all that.

on the other hand, at Baseball Savant, Gallo had 3 outs above average and 3 runs prevented, and Santander had 1 and 1. Again, in 57 and 37 games, respectively.
and this year the award is given based on “The society for American baseball research index” and that’s a private formula, so we have to wait and see.
Either way, I’m happy to have Anthony, and look forward to having him around for a while.

Just caught a graphic in a segment on Springer's free agency showing Santander (+9.4% from 15.3 to 24.7) atop a leaderboard of Greatest Launch Angle Increase last year.  

I do generally understand this to be an outcome a hitter can move with intention.

Another day, another tidbit - the '21 Baseball Forecaster gives him a bullish UP tag, lauding improved Eye and low H% as indicators he deserved more than his .261 AVG outcome.

Their xBA for his 2020 was .308.

    • I think you will be seeing “essential” workers begin to be vaccinated by Feb-March.  December and January will be healthcare workers and the elderly but this makes up probably less than 25 percent of the population. 
    • Umm..yes, you are wrong.  Several teams treat the position as of its a full time position.  That at bat stats is a fact you can’t argue against.  That’s the definition of “full time”.    
    • March should be early enough to book your flight and hotel.
    • I wonder if they would still be on the hook for the entire salary if they waited til after a potential announcement of a shortened season?
    • Nah, I’m not wrong. however, If I may my father’s comment half way through a performance of Mahler 8: ” well, I’ve had about as much of this as I can stand. Let’s go find something interesting to eat.“ And that is what I am going to do… God bless you and happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
    • I posted way back at the beginning of the thread that I thought it was possible Nunez had another level of improvement left in him.   If I’m guessing (which is all it is), I think Hays and Santander will be better hitters than Nunez at their respective peaks.    But I don’t know it for sure.   It’s sort of a moot point since we agree Nunez isn’t really competing with those two for at bats.   As to Stewart, I’m guessing he will not turn out to be as good a hitter as Nunez, though I’m not sure about that, either.  
    • o   The St. Louis Cardinals franchise has been around since 1882. That's 139 seasons. In all of that time (1882-present), who holds the all-time Cardinals franchise record for most consecutive strikeouts in a game? Is it Bob Gibson ??? Grover Cleveland Alexander ??? Jesse Haines ??? Dizzy Dean ??? No. While those superstars shined brightly for many years and many games for the Redbirds (especially Gibson and Haines), none of them holds the franchise record (1882-present) for the most consecutive strikeouts in a game. If not one of them, then who ??? Perhaps Bob Forsch, Steve Carlton, Mort Cooper, or John Tudor ??? Nix again. Believe it or not, it is none other than JOHN SMOLTZ. In 2009, in the twilight of his career and well past his prime, future Hall-of-Famer Smoltz struck out 7 consecutive batters on August 23rd against the Padres ........ IN HIS VERY FIRST GAME AS A CARDINAL. And mind you, this WAS NOT vintage John Smoltz. This was a 42 year-old pitcher who was hanging on at the end of his storied career, probably for no other reason than wanting to get every inch of love out of the game that he had been playing for the better part of his life. In fact, previous to the Cardinals signing him as a free agent that August, Smoltz has been absolutely dreadful pitching for the Red Sox (which is why they released him in the first place), going 2-5 with an 8.33 ERA. Smoltz pitched 6 more games for the Cardinals, and retired at the end of the season. Strange, but true.   o
