Lol. I don’t even understand where people like you are coming from. “If you hurt the pitchers feelings, he should be able to fire a baseball at you.” Lol wut.  I wonder why kids don’t watch baseb

Wrong. He threw the bat at his own teams dugout and screamed at them “let’s go!”. He didn’t scream or run into any of the other teams players. I was watching the game. If that is being a punk then I h

Everyone: "baseball's dying because it lacks excitement and energy" Players: (bat flip after a homerun) Everyone: "oh no you can't do that, this is a gentleman's sport" Can Joe West jus

Hey MLB it's probably not a great idea to bury the personalities that are good for the game while continuing to support Joe West who thinks he's greater than the game of baseball. 

 

Throwing your bat like a jagoff is not a "personality good for the game"

Let's talk about Tim. After starting the night 0-2, he goes off for 4 straight hits to will his team back from a 9-2 deficit. Another SB (THATS 10) and a walk-off jack to seal it. Oh and he's great at SS. Tons of range, smart and smooth. 

He's fun to watch right now.

Well s---, I guess I should not have turned another game on after Rodon got shelled and Eloy got hurt. 

 

I'll echo what someone else said about selling high -- 30+ SB guys who aren't garbage in other areas are so rare. If I owned him anywhere I would demand a ransom to give him up. We don't even know what his upside is. 30/40? Doesn't seem crazy at this point. Even when he regresses, the power and speed are good enough to get him close to that.

The thought of selling high for me is done. This guy is awesome.

I can understand both sides of it (wanting to sell high and wanting to hold).  One thing is definitely certain is that he's not hitting .400 or anywhere near it all season.  One can't argue with the rest of his stats though...

He’s always been a good base stealer in terms of %.  85% (51 for 60) over last few years.  10 for 10 this year already.  Is it safe to say he should be knocking on door of 40 SBs?

What do you think a good sell high offer would be? Have you tried to trade him?

I think so. He's got the right mentality to match his speed and effectiveness. A good base stealer has the confidence to steal a bag anytime they're on base, and that's def him this year. Feel like he's stolen 3rd at least 3 times.

The thing is no one thinks he's gonna do that so in terms of the "sell high" it doesn't make it into the equation. Unless you're in a league where there's someone less inclined to look deep into numbers.

Actually, I don't own him (unfortunately so far).  I venture into threads for players I don't own at times. 😀

 I mean honestly who better are you going to get for him?  You get players to play them and when you strike gold you don't throw them away.  You let them carry you to a championship.

BABIP sitting at .448, highest in baseball by 20 points.  Last year his BABIP was .289, in 2017 it was .328.

He's also swung at 45.5% of pitches out of the zone, 2nd highest in baseball.

 

Regression is coming.

I think everyone knows that.

For sure, what he is doing now is not sustainable at all. 

That being said, I totally think he can outproduce last year's final numbers by a decent amount. In the minors his BABIP has always been above .365 and he is a career .265 hitter in the bigs. I feel like everyone thinks he is, and always will be, a sub-.250 hitter. The dude may actually be able to hit around .280, and if he does that I do think there is potential for 25-40 or even more.

Reading through the past 2 pages, I disagree.

If you're gonna cite his O-swing you should probably include his O-Contact, especially considering it's the highest of his career at 68%. He also has his lowest swinging strike rate currently. 

NO ONE EXPECTS A .300 AVERAGE

We're here for bags, bombs, and batflips.
