If you play Texas, they are excellent Vs righties or lefties.
OPaCY is much tougher on lefties (and righties) than Globe Field is.
So, you may go with GRod in game 2 because the lefties are going to struggle to hit more in OPACY anyway but at the end of the day, it may not make of a difference.
They also may just want the rookie pitching at home.
Kyle Gibson is intriguing. He has a high OPS against the Rangers but he pitched for them in 2021 And he has a sub 3 ErA at home that year. In its first full year, Globe had a 97 park effect. This year it’s 106. So that’s a factor too.
Thanks for a great detailed report @Frobby.
I'm not sure I understand how the stats for Rutschman and McCann warrant identical B- grades. Sure... Adley missed high expectations and McCann was better than last year's backups, but for me their "test scores" would not each receive the same grade.
Well the A’s did obtain their recently chosen MILB player of the year (Darell Hernaiz) from the Orioles so we share!
