His baserunning, speed, defense, and baseball IQ have all been vastly overrated

He also hit .340 in his rookie year

I know there is a lot of push-pull "madrigal is nellie fox" "madrigal sucks" stuff but yeah what has annoyed me about the sunshiners was just the absolutism in the statements that he was a good baserunner and gold glover on defense despite very little evidence beside the paragraph writeups when he was drafted.

It hit the lip of the grass

He's had two grass lip errors in the last 2 weeks.

 

It's like he doesn't make adjustments.

Couldn't be a worse start to this one. Looks like DK doesn't have his stuff today. This is the only way the A's win. Get a early lead go to their lights out bullpen early and it's a done deal. Sox bats have to somehow come alive.

Yup.  Honestly he's looking exactly like the 2 WAR player his doubters described.

He’s going to need to pick up his base running and defense to even sniff that

That's kind of all he did, everything else is sorely lacking. I don't think he's a playoff caliber player right now at all.

Battle back boys - lets grind out a run here.  Forget and move on - lets do this!

I'm beyond pissed that the game has moved to ESPN News, which I don't have a subscription for. I don't have MLB Network either.

XFinity is hot garbage.

Did I really just hear "fastballs are his jam" on an actual professional broadcast?  I'm also glad EE is batting fifth you dumb fuck Renteria.

This is exactly why I was against signing him last winter. 

That's not what he usually does tho. His exit velos and hard hit % are all really good.

He’s just not strong or fast enough. Great hand eye coordination, but that’s it
