    No stat is perfect as a standalone though, right? BABIP explains much of what's happening to Utley, but the average speed of his batted balls compared to the league provides perspective too.

    Well, Joc does not seem to have nearly the power potential of Dunn. To be fair, not many in baseball history have.

    If you look back, Dave wasn't saying Joc hits like Adam Dunn, just made the...

    In fairness, he is 10 of his last 22. He was actually hitting .288 coming into today. He still has less than 60 AAA at bats.

    Not suggesting we bring him up now, just thought I'd add an outside...

    Lol. Couldn't hurt, right?

    Hopefully he comes around. I was always huge on him as a prospective Johnny Damon type, but it seems he was determined to become a power hitter these last few minor...

    Quite an eerie comparison. Power definitely seems to be there too, though Gibbons was an early count hacker if recall. Nowhere near the walks and k's,...

    Utley is actually not playing bad, he's just been the unlickiest player in baseball to this point in the season. Some team may get a discount there if his numbers don't improve in the near future...

    He seems to be pitch-guessing a lot of the time. I guess that makes sense because, while he's not a huge guy, he swings a pretty damn big bat.

    In either case, he's doing what I thought he would...

    I would say the former is the most realistic scenario, but IF it did happen it would require a huge package (stop giggling) from us.

    Agreed that if you're going to bunt there, you need a good bunter in. Can't afford failure. But whether or not it was a bunting situation depends on perspective I guess.

    Tartt seems to be drawing a lot of comparison to Chancellor. If he's truly that good then I don't care how much of a reach it was, that was a good pick.

    that was kind of my point. If we can't trade up for Cooper, I'd rather sit back at 15 or trade back later end of the first in such a deep pool at wide receiver. no way we get Cooper at 9, and I don't...

    Parker is growing on me, I just can't see trading up to 9 to take any receiver not named Amari Cooper. IMHO, I would prefer to trade back for a later first plus a second. I would thentry to use the...

    Good thing too, or he'd probably be in here trying to argue the reward potential of the McCarthy signing was still worth the risk.

    Yes it does matter.

    Shields pitching around his average, "sometimes better, sometimes worse", will give his team a chance at staying in every game.
