  1. Akil Baddoo is just a joy to watch. Should be talked about way more than he is - the way he battles in the box at 22 years old (as a rule 5 pick, no less) is just impressive.

    2-run HR in his 2nd AB tonight against a guy that’s at least in the Cy Young discussion.

    Works out of an 0-2 count to draw a walk in his 3rd AB.

    Fights off a 1-2 offering from a lefty for a 2-run single in his 4th AB.

    The Tigers have a table setter.

    Logan Webb returns from the IL to strike out 3 Nationals in the first inning, including Soto. Will be on a tight pitch count tonight but could be making regular starts soon.

    He was dominating his last few starts before getting hurt and is available in many leagues, especially those with limited IL space. Highly recommend picking him up.

    The 2-seamer to strike out Soto was incredible.

    Again, how is explaining what s happening the same as supporting what is happening.

    I'm a fantasy baseball "player" and I would love for ALL my prospects to get called up and youth to play over vets.  But it isn't going to happen.  That is all I have been saying.  This isn't how real baseball works and it never has been.

     

    But are you even explaining it all that well? You yourself said that the Red Sox don’t need them both, and that they are slot clones of one another.

    You also keep using one bad at bat as a strike against Duran, but he followed up that one at bat with a great at bat, which is one of the things that the Red Sox very own front office claimed they needed to see. 

    You can keep citing “real baseball”, but there is no law or rule book that dictates what “real baseball” must look like. Teams do as they will, and that makes criticism fair game. Especially when a team continues to play subpar performers. Definition of insanity right?

  4. Just spitballing here, but I feel like they either call him up tomorrow (beginning of a 7 game home stand) or wait another 2 weeks (beginning of the next home stand).

     

    Without being able to cite a source besides my shoddy memory, it seems these top prospects get called up at the beginning of a stretch of home games.

  5. This guy has been money over the last month (OBP leagues, especially).

    Feel like the numbers can improve as well. He’s batting leadoff for a force of a lineup and getting on base at a 44% clip over the last month. I think there’s more counting stat upside to be tapped into and statcast numbers are backing up the performance.

    Looking forward to getting 3 games in Coors to start the week, where he’s a .423 career hitter.

  6. Anyone got an optimistic take here? I’ve seen Solak once in person this past week and watched several games over the last few weeks, and he just seems completely lost by my untrained eye. 
     

    I don’t see anything from the advanced metrics that gives me any conviction to hold either. Curious to see where everyone stands.

  7. Really like what I've been seeing from Frazier lately.  Average up over .300 after last night's performance, with an OBP sitting at .421 on the back of a career high walk rate.  Strikeout rate is also a few ticks down from his career average, which never hurts.  As a bonus, he's pitched in a couple of steals over the last week.

     

    All in all, he's absolutely destroying the baseball and Boone is going to have to keep finding ways to keep his bat in the lineup.

  8. Won't show too much in the stat sheet, but another huge game offensively for JD last night. Home run to break the ice early, but his most impressive AB was probably his last.

     

    Got down 0-2 with the bases loaded in a tie game, looked completely composed at the plate, and spit on an 0-2 slider for a deep, opposite field sac fly that ended up being a game winner.

    Grisham got the start against the RHP on coincidence because Cain got the breather for that one. Cain doesn't need that many days off. 

     

    Grisham is likely there to serve notice to some of the struggling lineup guys - if the offense doesn't start clicking soon, I think that playing time will ramp up. I'm holding for now.

     

    Completely disregard what I said 😂
