A lot of the credit needs to go to the coaching staff as well. They completely turned him into a new hitter, and we've seen them do it with other guys like Chris Taylor and Justin Turner. He's a completely different hitter from his Oakland days.

Don't forget they revived the corpse of Matt Kemp

Need that one last start at 2B. Come on Roberts!!

 

Also though he has started NO games in the OF he has made SIX appearances there according to Baseball Reference.  So a decent chance he gets four more to gain OF (LF) in Yahoo (5 starts OR 10 appearances) and other platforms that use appearances only (ESPN maybe?).  Nice to own someone doing this well who has 1B, 2B, 3B, OF (LF in OF specific leagues) listed next to his name.

 

So start him at 2B then shift him to LF later in a few games now please, Mr Roberts.

Are you not entertained ?! 

 

The Matt Olson of 2018!

 

Maybe the power of Matt Olson but otherwise anything but Matt Olson. Matt Olson was a K machine who didn't walk nearly as much.

 

 

In fact, Muncy is #2 in the league in BB% behind only Mike Trout (the leader of Intentional Walks)....BB% is a stat that stabilizes in about half the ABs Muncy has had...So we are past the "lucky" streak.

Like a car engine, you don't want him to overheat.

...and then he'll play 1B  vs. LHP.  Obviously I added that last part, but it's pretty obvious he's not going to all of a sudden be part of an actual platoon now in terms of playing time.  Regardless, bring on that 2B eligibility (even though I will technically have that starting tomorrow already).

I'm always a fan of added versatility with my players. Next year he'll have 1B/2B/3B eligibility in Yahoo leagues, and if he gets 4 more games in the OF (not starts, just games), then he can maitntain OF eligibility, as well. That certainly adds to his value in keeper leagues.

Would love to have him at 2b.  So i can dump J. Schoop

 

I am trying to trade for Muncy for the same exact reason.  I'm fed up with Schoop!

So quit sitting him Roberts, you idiot

I actually don't have a problem giving him a day off if he plays for roughly 2 weeks without one, but Roberts picks the strangest times to give him one.  When I went bonkers on here a little while back, it was after he had hit HR's in 4 straight games.  Giving him one this week after hitting HR's in back-to-back games doesn't make a whole lot of sense either.  Granted players that are really hot can take a while to cool down to where you can rest him after a slow game, but Roberts needs to at least give it a shot instead of the days off in the midst of a big hot streak.  He should have tried it on the 26th right after an 0-2 game.

 

In the end, it's more frustrating than anything else since Muncy just goes back to doing what he does best, even if it takes him a few games.

While I'm not quite sure he's really going to make a run at a HR title, what he is doing is still mighty impressive, and now he's all of a sudden a borderline elite 2B.  At least a pretty damn good one.
