  1. This is what my brain prepping for a statistics final came up with:

    2023: $30M

    2024: $26M, becomes $30M with a Top 3 CY finish in 2023

    2025: $22M, becomes $26M with a Top 4 CY finish in 2024, becomes $30M with Top 4 CY finishes in both 2023 and 2024

    2026: $18M, becomes $22M with a Top 5 CY finish in 2025, becomes $26M with Top 5 CY finishes in both 2024 and 2025, becomes $30M with Top 5 CY finishes in 2023, 2024 and 2025.

    2027-2029: If 180+ IP the previous year AND 450+ IP the previous 3 years, $30M club option with $15M buyout, otherwise $18M club option with $4M buyout.

    One of the biggest issues is the quality of finishing.  I watch teams in the world cup and their shots on goal.  Quality hard shots happen multiple times in the game.  We get lazy headers directly at the goalie, or guys who are trying to audition for the NFL crushing 40 yard field goals way over the goal mouth.  Our players hesitate and mess up their shots over and over.   This needs to be the focus in the youth program.  How to deliver quality strikes.  


    The other thing, why is one of your best goal scorers delivering the corners.  Its insane.  

    Especially since he seems to be not particularly good at it.

    Has there been any mention of a revamped analytics department?  I know Grifol has said he embraces the data, just curious if they cleaned house there too and can’t remember either way. 

    It's very possible that the analytics people were doing valuable work and were just being ignored. Don't necessarily have to clean house.

    Wales was a perfect game for him to be used. The US was clearly dead and did a poor job utilizing substitutions and even the England game we had a shot and could have used that injection of energy up front and they were very slow to  bring him in. I agree he may not be able to start - but leveraging him more in the back half of the game would make a lot of sense.  

    Bringing him on for Seargant today instead of using Wright would have been good as well.

    If and when Eloy is healthy (I know that's something you can't count on), he's a better power hitter than Abreu. Which is what the DH position needs to be. But...you can't count on Eloy's health.

    If Eloy is going to be playing more DH and less LF, that should help his health.

    Ugh, we are going to regret this.

    Unless someone was willing to trade for Eloy or Vaughn and massively overpay, we would have regretted bringing him back, so I think it's one of those things that was really a lose/lose proposition.
