    I agree 100%. And you're right to call out that whether it's height-related or not, he's unlikely to stay there. I think all that needs to be said is that he likely isn't better than Starlin,...

    It's really not though, because it's part of the root of his inability to stick there long term.

    Did you even read what I wrote? How the hell did you extrapolate this from what I said? Yes, ALL defenders are automatically better than him because they're shorter...come on now.

    Just, no. The man is almost 6'6. It's ****ing physics people. There are no reports that his reaction time offsets his inherently limited range to make him even average at 3B long term.

    He didn't specify more AAV, he said more years and (naturally) dollars.

    He's also playing in a pitcher's league/one of the most humid parts of the country. Not concerned about the bat.

    Damn. Highlights his scouting report to the button: above average but not great range, impeccable footwork, cannon.

    This is my interpretation of what's going on as well. I don't really give a **** about paying him more his last year personally, but his "clock" towards free agency doesn't mean the same as other...

    While in principle I agree, the guy batting 2nd gets pretty substantially more at bats over the course of the season than the one batting 4th. And if the manager isn't a dildo and has a high OBP guy...

    Only? In a pitcher's league and very age appropriate he's totally fine. The .774 also doesn't incorporate both homers tonight...obviously not elite, but he's fine.

    Almora had been crushing it--but I honestly wonder if a chunk of the rationale is to avoid the ****** daytona weather. He's now the 6th youngest player in all of AA (Russell is now 11th).

    Basically the top-line is that he's hitting the ball to the opposite field all the time because he can no longer pull the ball with authority any more.
