    Mata went another 6.0 innings on Friday, giving up 3 hits, 0 r, 2bb/5k. He's still 20 and saw an uptick in stuff last year so who knows? Brainer Bonaci continues to impress too, going 3/4 with a HR on Saturday and 1/3 with a double and a SB (11/11) today. He's hitting .426 in his first 60 PA...

    Just for reference: First 145 PA: .144/.245/.175, .217 BAbip, 4 doubles, 0 HR, 16bb/43k, 11.0% BB rate, 29.7% K rate Last 87: .307/.402/.653, .362 BAbip, 8 doubles, 6 HRs, 8bb/22k, 9.2% BB rate, 25.3% K rate If his "cold" half this year is only 145 PA, he's going to have a great year. He...

    DSL2 game just ended and the previously mentioned Elio Prado hit his 2nd HR of the year and stole his 5th base in a 2/5 performance today. Now up to .326/.431/.581 in 51 PA with 8bb/9 and 5sb in 5 attempts.

    Dominican League Bryan Gonzalez continues to mash. In just 11 games, he already has 5 HRs. He's slashing .341/.423/.773 in 52 PA with 5bb/11k. He has 2 sb in 2 attempts for good measure. Albert Feliz also hit another HR this past week and has 4 for the year. He's slashing .318/.354/.705...

    His good and bad stretches are so long. He has to be incredibly stubborn about adjusting his swing or something. If he ever put it all together for one season, he'd might win an MVP award. If he ever struggled for an entire season, it would be one of worst seasons in the history of MLB. It's...

    Michael Chavis, SS: 2014 MLB Draft 26th overall

    He's had better results the past 6 games but since 5/5: 147 PA, .211/.286/.353, .311 BAbip, 12bb/54k. 36.7% K rate. Awful Last 6 games: 25 PA, .273/.360/.500, .500 BAbip, 3bb/11k. Still striking out way too much.

    Streaky hitters are supposed to be more valuable than consistent hitters. If that's the case, most metrics are probably severely underestimating his total value.

    HRs used to be hard to hit in the DSL. Maybe the launch angle revolution has hit the DSL too but it isn't all that uncommon to lead your team with 3-5 HRs at the end of the season. Xander hit 3 in 63 games, Devers hit 3 in 28, Margot had 4 in 68. Either way, there's definitely some exciting...

    Kimbrel to Cubs

    Is the $45 prorated? It's probably closer to $40 mil? How does that work with the cap?

    Dalbec 4/4-5/5: 26 games, 106 PA, .200/.358/.318, .283 BAbip, 4 doubles, 2 HR, 20bb/30k Dalbec 5/7-6/4: 25 games, 106 PA, .290/.377/.688, .309 BAbip, 5 doubles, 1 triple, 10 HR, 10bb/28k Thought this was an interesting line: Josh Ockimey since May: 122 PA, .191/.361/.500, .196 BAbip. 18 hits...

    2019 Trade Deadline

    Yeah. I could see making some other small moves but none that matter much or make sense roster wise. Another idea for 1b if Moreland becomes an issue is to just go with Josh Ockimey. He is completely useless vs lefties but he can mash vs righties. This year vs R: .261/.427/.626, 11 HR...

    Mookie BBetts - 2019 Campaign

    I don't think this is his true hitting talent level but I don't think last year was either. If last year was his true hitting ability, coupled with everything else, he's be one of the 5 best players to have ever played the game. I'd guess his true hitting level is right around .300/.400/.500...

    It's a fair question to ask though. He basically said "I can see the ball now." How does he go through such long stretches where he doesn't?

    Keeping the Sky Up. What is going right?

    Vazquez has a career high 7 HRs in just 156 PA. Following this year, he's still signed for 3 years, 17.45 million total. Right now he's looking like one of the best contracts in baseball. Funny how that works.

    Jose Iglesias is having a pretty good offensive year so far: 189 PA, .306/.339/.444. He already has 4 HRs, his career high is 6. I was slightly disappointed when the Sox traded Margot as I thought he was going to be a very good player but he just hasn't hit at the MLB level. He's at...
