I am going to go with lucky #13. He watches the family film Arachnophobia, has a nightmare, and falls down a spiral staircase, whereafter he applies for permanent disability.

Didn’t know this thread existed and I’m glad it does. I don’t care how unfair it might be, don’t like this guy and his contempt for the game I love. And he can’t even pretend to give a damn while being paid tens of millions to sit on the trainer’s table.

I’m gonna say 41 games, OPS between .670-699, and he screws up his shoulder somehow.

4 games played, he is 0-15.

Since Rendon’s last hit (July 3), Adolis Garcia has homered 29 times. Yes, that’s correct.

Looks like Rendon missed his first game last night. Not sure if it was due to injury or because he’s yet to get a hit.

162 is off the table.

I’m sure that having the game taken from him is absolutely soul crushing. The same kind of crushing I felt whenever my shift was over and the next group came in to take over…
That's hardly fair, I sincerely doubt you were making $38m before your next shift started.

I just want to share that when I read "How will he be used?", my first thought for some reason was as a paperweight.

I was thinking similarly. Like, what kind of question is this? He'll play third base or DH and hit in the top half of the order, what other ways can he be used?

Here's a philosophical question: would you rather have your abysmal signing be a guy who puts up a negative WAR but is fairly healthy (e.g., Javy Baez this year) or a guy who puts up an above-zero WAR but barely plays (Rendon)?

I also wonder who has a worse impact on the clubhouse.

I think Baez is preferable since there's always a chance he'll bounce back and provide a little more value, even if you might just be getting extra helpings of a shit sandwich.

The always-injured guy can be replaced on the active roster and after a while you no longer factor him into your plans, so he can be "out of sight, out of mind" to some extent. A guy like Baez is there every night accumulating negative value and reminding you of the mistake.

I also try to remind myself (sometimes unsuccessfully) that sports injuries aren't proof of moral shortcomings.*

*Not denying that there have been cases of a player who got paid and no longer put in the work and effort. (and maybe Rendon is one) but it's pretty rare, despite what most fans seem to think.

Agree. There's also something to the "team" element of it all; from a distance, Baez appears to be a hard worker despite the failure, that's a good example. Something tells me Rendon ain't showin' up early for extra cage work.

It's Rendon, right? Rendon is the one telling you that?
