  1. RIP pitching stats this week. At least he's down to a more respectable 54 ERA and 7 WHIP from the 162 and 21 that I saw when I first checked my stats
  2. Kyle Wright, after 1 start, now leads MLB in HBP. Averaging 1 HBP/IP. That sustainable?
  3. There literally is nowhere to pitch him right now. He is not missing anything and even on that pitch clearly outside he hit it with some authority.
  4. Looks like we're witnessing the much anticipated Vladdy breakout season!
  5. Anyone know how fluid plate disclipline is within one season? Can he have such elite discipline now and have it just disappear later? Of course there are other variables that could result in what I would assume would be insignificant statistical drops/increases, but I'm talking about regression back to his career #s after what we've seen.
  6. Imagine if this early season plate discipline is even moderately sustained. Swing % on pitches out of the zone is top 5 in the league right now and K% is way down.
  7. F$*#()!*# hate h2h. The only guy who is performing better than me this week is the guy I'm facing (of course) and his offense is on a different level this week. I'm going to very quickly drop far back in the rankings at this rate.
  8. Exactly. But if you watch Twitter feeds, it's as if roids magically transform you into a skilled athlete and Bonds and other folks were only good because of steroids.
  9. Sorry, I should have been clear, I wasn't trying to say you have it out for him. Twitter constantly points out the long single as evidence that he is immature and needs to grow and it's just tiring at this point. He absolutely has shown tremendous growth as a person and a ball player but I stand by my comment that he absolutely has been an intense player since his call-up. The energy he brings to the team is infectious.
  10. Okay sorry, I'll revise it to 99.9999999999999% of the time he's an intense dude. Also, that "out of shape" guy had a great year that landed him as the 1/1 pick in most leagues this year. People (not necessarily on this forum) seem to have it out for him, especially after pimping what ended up being a long single. The negativity attached to him is bizarre.
  11. He's going to slump, there's no doubt about that but he's always been an intense player. He struggled with velo last year, hopefully he will be more productive with elite velo this year, - that might be the one thing that truly holds him back.
  12. 31 ft/s sprint speed! 30 is elite, beating out that groundball was just incredible! He looks to have unlocked a whole new level of play this year (yes SSS but we know what he is capable of).
  13. I'm sure there is some literature on this. I certainly would not compare MLB to NFL. There is zero reason they cannot time sync videos to the smallest of milliseconds to do an easy side by side comparison. Again, there are countless times it's quite obvious what the right call is but NY does not overturn because it doesn't meet the burden of proof that is required to overturn the call. None of that seems right to me and totally invalidates the purpose of replay which is to get the call on the field correct, regardless of what the original call was.
  14. Yeah he was traded. Don't believe he can go to another team.
