Oh...wait a minute. This damn clown did it again...traded a 20 year old in Rookie league, for a 28 year old journeyman OFer???

AND, Julks was DFA for Houston before this? So stupid.

Stop treating the organization like your personal save of MLB the Show, asshat.

Obviously those 3.2 American innings told them everything they needed to know.

Looking the numbers, Julks has actually put up some impressive numbers in AAA the last few years, over .800 OPS in all of them including 30 homers two  years ago.  They are PCL numbers though, so probably inflated to some point.  Honestly even his .650 OPS last year with Houston in his first pro play would look nice in this shithole line up.

Lol.

Burger was way too young compared to some of these guys.

Apparently...the goal is for them to gel together and hit the ground running when they are all in Years 30-32.

It's ridiculous Ortega even got so much play in the first place.

 

One thing Burger at least had last year was elite EV/bat speed compared to the majority of his teammates.

Julks is actually somewhat interesting.  Has big time power, has speed and is a decent OF.  Still has two options left.  Don't love giving up a lottery ticket for him, but happy to give him some reps down the line. 

Nothing about his time in MLB last year suggests he has big time power and his 31 home run seasons is insanely PCL inflated. Lewis Brinson who is now playing in Mexico hit 22 home runs in 85 games that year playing for the same team.

He did put up some pretty impressive exit velocity readings with Houston.
