Good to hear.

Here's what I posted in another thread last week:

Quentin would be a great acquisition, Petco is smothering him right now.

Could be a hell of an under-the-radar pickup. I have him on one of my fantasy teams, and he's done very well for me despite a very low ownership rate in other leagues. He has better plate discipline than you might expect(96:67 K:BB over his last 554 ABs), and his road numbers would suggest a potential breakout if he were to move to the smaller parks of the AL East. Let's do it.

KRod and Quentin. We have a team of real saints.

Not gonna have a team full of Choir Boys. Do you really think right now all 40 players on the Orioles roster are Choir Boys? Brob Roids I rather have Quentin and his fighting ways over a cheater.

Weren't roids legal when Brob did it? So how exactly was he cheating?

Not that I really care that much, but Roids and a DUI don't compare to beating women and breaking other mens bones.

What Krod did was bad and get's no pass. Quentin fighting with Greinke is baseball. They had a long history going back to when they played with Royals and White Sox.

    • I don’t think I’d put it this way.  The Mets have had a remarkably consistent year.  They’ve been above .500 every month (15-10 in Sept.).  They’ve played .600.+ baseball in every month but one (13-12 in June). They’ll end up between 98 and 104 wins.  That’s a great year.   The fact that Atlanta has nearly caught them is more a testament to Atlanta’s hot play than any sputtering by the Mets.    
    • Thanks Frobby for beating me to the punch, but yes, Chuck did Youmans work this year. He did it every single day througout the season. Amazing work. Thanks Chuck!
    • I have zero issues with Judge hitting his home run against the Orioles as long as it's in a loss. Walking him a bunch in an attempt to deny him is unsportsmanlike and petty and I can guarantee Hyde would have nothing to with that kind of stuff.
    • Good analysis, but of course in the real world it also depends who your alternatives are in COF or as DH.  Santander’s WAR couid go down but the team WAR could go up if you have a better defensive alternative who saves more on defense than you’d lose on offense by playing some other guy at DH. Just to look at this in a concrete way, are you better off with Santander in RF and Mancini at DH, or McKenna in RF and Santander at DH?  The fact that Santander individually loses some WAR by moving to DH is irrelevant.   
    • In his career, Judge has homered against us 35 times in 84 games (79 starts).   That’s more than .4 homers per game.   So yes, I’d say the odds favor him hitting one against us this weekend. I just want to beat the Yankees.   Anything that happens in an Orioles win is okay with me.   
    • Let the man hit.  Judge is a decent guy and the major league record is 73.  I don't consider Bonds' record a "real" record because of all the steroids he was on, but it's still the record.  Not sure what the insane level of hate for Judge is about.  I have no problem hating Yankees who are d-bags, but hate of random Yankee and hate of players like Roberts who went to the Yankees because no one else wanted him are over the edge. I think what I really hate are Yankee fans.
    • Is it really a big problem?    Walking guys is only rarely a good strategy.
