    Time for some changes, Rick

    Oh, casual fans will hate Collins, but I couldn't care less. He's gonna be a very solid offensive player.

    You think Mendick and Collins would be rushed if they were called up in the next month?

    Moncada

    What has gone the wrong way though? Is a marginal increase in K-rate over a 3 week span really that big of a deal? If you ask me, the biggest difference between April and May is that his BABIP dropped from .370 in April (slightly above career average) to .326 for May (slightly below career average). His overall numbers, as a result, seem like a decent indicator of what he'll be moving forward to me.

    Moncada

    So basically, you're both establishing that K-rate over a small sample is meaningless

    Moncada

    A lot of the skepticism seems to be from people thinking he's in a slump. However over the past 2 weeks he is hitting .263/.349/.526 for an .875 OPS.

    Sox and Stros 7:10 Central

    They'll look foolish within a month

    Somehow tying/winning would be extra satisfying with Osuna being the pitcher.

    Yup. That out was 105 MPH. Good shift

    What did they say about Eaton yesterday?

    It's awful

    Of course Leury and Moncada hit liners right at guys to start the game

    The Crawford Boxes should be scared of all the baseballs he's gonna hit out there.

    Same. Not sure why I waited so long!

    Palka time

    Right. I'm just speaking to the hypothetical where they both got Alonso and Jay and were the high bidder

    Palka time

    It can't hurt, in that case. Take every advantage you can get for a generational talent.
  16. Jose Abreu

    Palka time

    It was received that way because it was (wrongly) assumed that we would also be the high bidder

    Yoan's longterm position

    How is he gonna be a full time catcher when Tim Anderson already has it locked down?

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    I was about to complain about whoever reopened this thread of pain but this is actually useful info, thanks. Confirms my suspicions as well. We probably offered him something like 10/280

    How many wins do you expect out of this road trip?

    Maybe, but it's less of a reach than expecting 0!

    How many wins do you expect out of this road trip?

    4-3. This is baseball, not football

    Yoan's longterm position

    The Fangraphs update just gave Moncada a huge bump defensively. He is now at a -0.1 defensive rating, way up from ~ -3, and 14th in baseball (among 3B). As a result, he is currently sitting at 1.6 fWAR and is on pace for about 5.8 fWAR. I was against moving him to 3B originally, but I want him to stay there now.
  22. Disappointed but not surprised that that's the only move. I was starting to buy into the idea that Mendick was out today because he too was getting the call.
  23. Yup. Pretty much the reason we lost right here.
