    How long is Goodrum’s leash? He has versatility but he’s broken at the plate.

    He doesn't seem like he's very good offensively given his history and age. He's 29 and has a career OPS+ of 89. He's a reserve and not a great defensive one at that. And he's 2 years older than Harold Castro (also not good at anything, but walks less).

    Why are both of Castro and Goodrum on the roster?

    Goodrum is probably on the roster until Willi Castro proves he can play SS every day defensively. Harold Castro barely has the arm for 2B, and SS isn't an option for him. Zack Short is probably the next closest thing to a capable SS defensively above A ball, so I'm guessing Goodrum sticks around for a while this year.

    Goodrum and Harold Castro are different players. Harold has some contact ability at the plate that for whatever reason people in the media and the front office like. He can't really play some of the positions they throw him in, though. Goodrum can't make contact, but can play SS and has some pop.

    They won’t be in May if they can’t hit. Parades and somebody else will be called up. It’s pretty pathetic I can’t think of anybody else who would be a contributor on this team. Thanks Avlia.

    Yes, I didn't mean they're duplicative of each other, although the Tigers seem to want to pretend that Castro is also a super sub, just that they both will probably never be that good enough to start. I can understand the value Goodrum brings to a roster, but not at the rate the Tigers try to play him. He's a utility guy rather than a super sub.

    Haven’t watched MLB in two or three years. Recently bought RBI Baseball ‘21 and started a ten year dynasty with the Tigers. Holy Fuck they are bad...not sure what’s worse, Xbox Tigers or real life Tigers

    I did that last year, RBI isn't a good game. The Show is coming to xbox this year, it's probably worth eating the loss and buying it instead investing a lot of time into RBI

    Jim Bowden in the Athletic on Akil Baddoo:

    "If the Tigers play the athletic Baddoo every day, he might end up being one of the best Rule 5 stories in baseball history."

    We need to get Bowden a GM job so Al isn't the worst in the majors.

    He is trying to paint the corner with every pitch. Once he gets over making every pitch perfect, he should be great.

    Gibby just screamed "Come on Jacoby, you can do it" like he was a fan screaming from stands

    He also spends 50% of the broadcast talking about sending runners

    Offense in MLB seems to be a lot easier when you have a team full of guys who hit a bunch of HRs like the Twins

    Batting order generally isn't that big of a deal, but that's one of those things where Miggy is getting an extra AB in the 9th in a huge spot instead of Candelario and that's probably not what you want.
