That's too bad. That guy loved the Detroit Tigers.
Lorenzen gonna mess around and get a no hitter?
Miggy hitting .260 now. Passed Gwynn and Yount and is now 19th all time. Probably will end up 16th overall behind Ripken or 17th behind Beltre. Would take a real heater to catch Cal for 15th and there is no chance of catching Nap Lajoie for 14th. 23 hits to pass Beltre.
Yep. He did it.
good thing Scott Harris got a weak hitting middle infielder for him. Avila 2.0
Not a bust.
Yikes. How did I miss this. Anyone know when this happened? I don’t recall playing the Mets.
MLB pipeline updated all the team top 30s. They have Clark at 15th in their overall top 100.
I wonder if we might try to sneak him some time in low A ball to end the year. He's got 3 doubles, 1 triple and 2 homers in four games in rookie ball.
His grandpa died and he's apparently having a hard time dealing with it, so I feel bad. But that edit is just too good not to laugh at this point.
Is he on quaaludes…that has to be the most pathetic home run call and that’s saying something
that was his worst call yet. Embarrassing
Another great Shep call.
What an awful call. Fire this loser
Dingler was promoted to Toledo.
he is going to be 25 in a couple weeks. Not much of a prospect any more.
Catchers age like fine backup QBs.
They actually came back to lose 14-13 and stranded the bases loaded in the 9th.
The entire Flyin' Tigers pitching staff is a BUST
Torkelson has 12 hits in 14 games this month. 6 of them have been HR (all in the last 7 games).
I don't know what to make of any of it, other than his HR totals would feel a lot better if it didn't feel like most of them came at the end of 0-12 stretches.
We are so good.
Carpenter: .868 OPS
Greene: .860 OPS
Torkelson: .742 OPS
The post-hype breakout isn’t compatible with the industry leading Vinegar Strokes bust system, so something is gonna have to give here.
We've already passed our team HR total from last year (110), but still came into today tied with Miami for 27th in the league with 115. It's hard to comprehend how embarrassing the offense was last year that this year's version is somehow this much better.
Greene a double away from cycle and will hit in 9th
Analyzing the inner depths of meaningless shit while tork is crushing homers
Almost blew it.
offensive juggernaut incoming
I'm confused looking at some of our AAA numbers in terms of how they fare in adjusted metrics.
For example, Parker Meadows is having a very similar season this year (.813 OPS) in AAA to last year (.820 OPS) in AA. But his wRC+ this is year 98 while his wRC+ last year was 122. Either Fangraphs has some issues in terms of its metrics, or I guess I just didn't realize how ridiculous the International League in AAA is offensively where an .800 OPS makes you a below average hitter.
How much credit do we have to give Avila
can we find a new role for him?
MiLB wRC+ might not be park adjusted (other than the overall league adjustment). I think it for sure didn’t used to be, but I’m not sure about now. But for example, ~.360 wOBA is roughly 100 wRC+ in the International League, whereas ~.370 wOBA is roughly 100 wRC+ in the PCL. It seems like .01 wOBA is too small of an adjustment between those two leagues, but maybe not.
But also, AAA is essentially full “AAAA” players who absolutely dominate the level but can’t stick in the majors.
That makes sense. I guess I would have figured there were more AAAA pitchers at the level who kept the numbers down at least a little, but then I look at the numbers guys like Tyler Nevin and Andy Ibanez put up in Toledo compared to the bigs and I get it.
Bring him to GR you cowards!
According to fangraphs, Anderson has been playing only 2B (with 2 games as a DH). Curious what they do with him long term, all our best infield prospects seem to currently project as 2B.
I could see him playing 2B, 3B, or 1B. Maybe even SS, he played there originally, but he wouldn’t be good defensively. But he isn’t great defensively at any of the non-1B spots and his relative hitting advantage goes away if he plays 1B. Likely a utility/DH guy unless he turns out to be the best 2B of all of them.
Spend some money and we winning the central next year. This team fucks
If we could play just the AL Central we'd win 95+ games.
Maybe stop putting the 9 hole hitter on.
It's hard for pitchers to pull off a single digit number, and Beau Brieske isn't nearly good enough to do so.
Nick Maton is so bad
Shitnero should be his name
I think you can go get him now, AJ. Although there's not much point now.
