Saw them in concert twice. That was a big step up for Carman.

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

"His shoulder injury might be permanently damaging him as a hitter but at least he had a .787 OPS in 47 July PAs before throwing in the towel" is peak Duke and he didn't even post it.

At least he died before we had to worry about his first big extension

Re: Politics & Current Events

Lol at anyone believing this might “take Trump down.”

There is already a tape of him bragging about sexual assault and this country cares way more about its white women than it does black people.

Counterpoint: The minor league forums fawn over lots of guys who end up becoming wet turds in the majors.

Re: Politics & Current Events

I'm paranoid as horsefeathers but I am like 60% convinced at best we are actually going to get a free and fair election in November. I assume that doesn't already factor in all the gerrymandering that has taken place as well as voter suppression? Not including ordinary levels of voter suppression. ...

It would be like if some guy claimed he could do a backflip and then landed on his head. The HR was legendary. The run around the bases ...

Re: Bat Flip Thread

That was a 3 out of 10 bat flip, arguably not even a flip but a drop, with a 17/10 run around the bases.

Re: How much is 1 WAR worth?

Also, the 2006 Red Sox finished with a negative run differential and accrued the 22nd-highest position player WAR. We're not the 2006 Red Sox. On Sunday, August 13, 2006, the Red Sox were 20 games over .500 with a +65 run differential and the second-best offense in baseball. But the main point of c...

Re: How much is 1 WAR worth?

We knew that this could happen, we were just in a little bit of euphoric denial. Pitchers are weird and Epstein especially does not really understand them, especially in comparison to the ridiculous track record this front office has in developing position players. It's just hard not to say "ma...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Matt Carpenter is having a more valuable season than Javier Baez, but that'd just make it even funnier to listen to the bitching if Baez wins MVP.

The good news is that this is exactly what happened to Epstein in Boston and they still got another WS win.

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

It's so weird to me that nobody seems to keep AAA scouting reports, or maybe the quality of pitching is so different it doesn't matter. Because it seems like we constantly have guys who come up and mash a little because the league says "lol here's your fastballs" before adjusting to whatev...

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

Bote isn't just hitting every ball hard. He's hitting everything close to his desired launch angle. That's a pretty textbook example of counting the same thing twice. Sure, there is obvious overlap, but they are also clearly two different things. Do you call people out who cite Baez's OPS and WAR n...

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

From May 2016: I think that Soler has been a little unlucky. His average exit velocity is 92.3mph, which is about the same as Rizzo's exit velocity. And his exit velocity has been stable - standard deviation is only 12.7mph. As a comparison, Harper's exit velocity is 91.7mph and standard deviation i...
