    I'm guessing the reason why called a lot of fastballs this series is because very few of our pitchers could get a breaking ball over for a strike.

    I wonder if we're going to see more of this going forward seeing as Cleveland is in sell mode.

    God, when he's on, he might have some of the best stuff in the league.

    That's beside the point. I grew up in Yankee country, and there was definitely a vocal part of that fanbase who never thought he was that good.

    Moncada seems to have become the new Robinson Cano, in that people will endlessly debate about how good he is. Those types of debates have a tendency to get irrational and nonsensical. For example, someone on The Athletic's fantasy baseball podcast said Moncada would have a bad year because he released that single over the offseason. It's shame because the dude has worked his butt off. The fact that he was able to still play last year as a COVID long hauler is a feat in itself.

    25 mil for a 5 WAR player is dirt cheap.

    There was a period where WE would kill for a player like this. Even if he settles with 25 HR power, you basically have Anthony Rendon. I feel like his bad 2018 still sticks with people. Even in 2019, people were expecting the wheels to fall off at any moment.

    And there was a period of a year that spanned 2 seasons where JRam looked like a DFA candidate.

    Depending on who you ask, Kopech was always the best prospect in that trade. I don't really get the point in comparing the two. Even if (hypothetically) Kopech has the better career, i don't see how that makes Moncada some massive disappointment that some are claiming he is. It's a weird argument to make, imo.
