Yeah but it could be at 80% if it wasn’t for that damn Hamate. 

ham ate the power, Olson at the ham, now he has even more power than before ham ate.

He was HBP in the 1st, then drew a walk followed by a K.  Mark Canha pinch hit for him in the 9th, though the A's were down 6-0 at the time.  Doesn't seem like anything to be concerned with.

Ah ok thanks for the info.

How many hamate bones does this guy have? Rotoworld claimed a sap of some sort. I demand an explanation.

 

they also said Sandoval was putting on weight and that could add power.

Before he hit #11, he tried bunting for a hit against the shift. It went foul, so I guess he decided to launch the next pitch over the outfield wall.

 

What's really scary is his hr/fb rate is slightly high, but within the realm of sustainability (as opposed to his rookie season).

Rotoworld Blurb:

Matt Olson hit his 14th home run of the year in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

Advice: Angels starter Griffin Canning was pretty good on this night, but in the fourth inning he left a pitch where you don't leave a pitch to power hitters like Olson. The 25-year-old made him pay, launching a 431-foot homer to center to cut into the Angels' lead. It was the only hit for Olson in four at-bats on the evening. Having the hamate bone removed from your hand is supposed to sap your power, at least anecdotally, but Olson must have missed the memo -- in 46 games since returning from the injury, the first baseman has 14 home runs. Sap that.

 

They are still at it with this sap thing.

Wish I had the good sense to take a chance on him with the injury.  Congrats guys.  

Frustrating because I knew he was one of the premier power guys and still didn't roll the dice.

The moment he came back I have started him with no regards. Yes, he'll have his 0-4, 3 K games, but the dude will NEVER be on my bench due to his immense power. There are just some guys I play with no regard for matchups. If Oakland benches him, then I'll make a move, but guys who can easily hit a ball 450 feet don't go to the bench.

well, this thread has certainly quieted down.  This is my post to get Olson going again.

 

He was on base 3 times tonight. He is really doing a good job of not being such an all or nothing player this year and his at bats are really pretty solid, but I am ready for some more ALL.
