    yep. and muno makes sense because he plays multiple infield positions and is a switch hitter.

    i also think montero tries to be a little too perfect in the big situations. he will often miss just...
  2. Sticky: Poll: montero sent down for muno. i think this makes a...

    montero sent down for muno. i think this makes a lot of sense. montero has shown flashes out of the pen, but it seems like it takes him a batter or so to get comfortable. hopefully they are...
  3. Sticky: Poll: Wilmer can hit at this level. Not everyone has to...

    Wilmer can hit at this level. Not everyone has to swing hard. He's a big boy and he has great hands. That's what allows him to have good bat speed and good contact skills

    Yeah the zone seems to be getting bigger and bigger

    Ump seemed to be squeezing gee and giving cosart a bit on the corners. Or maybe I'm just a homer
  6. low swing low contact is certainly not the worst...

    low swing low contact is certainly not the worst when you are talking about out of zone pitches.

    again, you are introducing outside information that is anecdotal.

    and to the second point, I'm...
  7. a guy who swings and misses a lot has to do...

    a guy who swings and misses a lot has to do damage when he makes contact to stick.

    this makes is so that any guy in the majors with a low contact obviously does damage when he does.

    they are...
  8. again, you are talking about guys who are in the...

    again, you are talking about guys who are in the major leagues. guys with low contact HAVE TO HAVE POWER to be productive. so of course guys in the majors who have low contact have high power.

  9. sorry, i was referring only to out of zone...

    sorry, i was referring only to out of zone pitches. not overall.

    this has also already been subset to major league players, who are productive enough to get playing time, where as i meant it more...

    high swing, low contact = bad (because you will k all the time)
    high swing, high contact = not quite as bad (you will make bad contact, but at least put ball in play)

    i am not sure which is...
  12. id rather he not swing at all. which is what he...

    id rather he not swing at all. which is what he is doing. and sometimes with 2 strikes, or when you are fooled, you have to go out of the zone. id rather he foul it off or put it in play and give...

    those are his k percentages. they improved at mlb level. but he is also citing, by far, flores worst minor league season in terms of k percentage.

    most relevant though, because most recent, and...

    55 games.

    he also had a .245 ISO and a 137 wRC+ so there may have been some tradeoff in approach

    i would be remiss if i did not note that he had ~240 plate appearances. above the threshold for...
  15. i would expect that there is a lot of interaction...

    i would expect that there is a lot of interaction between z contact, o contact, and o swing when predicting BABIP.

    if you barely swing at pitches out of the zone, regardless of your o contact, it...
  16. edited my post. and having high o contact...

    edited my post.

    and having high o contact certainly is not a explanation for more strikeouts.

    his lower z contact might though

    he has never had a k% above 14% in a full season
  17. he has cut his o swing percentage in half this...

    he has cut his o swing percentage in half this year. one of the first indicators to stabilize

    also, his z contact percentage from last year puts him in the top 100 thus far this year. and im...

    hes got a nice little gut now. he put his stomach behind that swing. his range is not what it once was.

    hahah that was dumb as ****. i switched the order on everything else, but put the wrong ballpark up. good thing those are images you probably already had on deck
