    If itís determined that Bryant is being traded, it would be hard to argue that isnít very good value. If heís traded for prospects, Iíd guess the actual return is a less than that idea. It still...

    Has anyone seen this quote from anyone other than Heyman? Thatís a lot more blunt than the FO typically speaks.

    Whatever. 4.8 in 147 games and weighed down by outfield defense. He was easily 5+ as a full time 3b.

    Sure it is. But good luck. You need to immediately improve on a 5-8 win player with his trade return and $18 mil. Itís most likely if heís traded that itís a net loss for 2020 and hopefully a net...

    Iíd be cautious to say that he has improved his framing. He may have made some progress in his framing but overall he rated very poorly as framer, so at best the jury is out.

    Not that I know of, but his UZR/150 at 2b was 1.1 and he had 7 DRS (in line with his norm there). As an OF he had a -8.6 UZR/150. Thereís about a 10 run positional adjustment between RF and 2b. Iíd...
