    Funny thing about this; I tend to believe that strikeouts arenít a big deal if the player has a great ability for BABIP, but I also wouldnít construct an entire roster full of those players. One Adam Dunn with a bunch of high OBPs in front of him will drive in a lot of runs. 8 Adam Dunnís are going to come up empty a LOT.
    I just feel that the players that K a lot tend to choke in the postseason against better pitching.

    I'm shocked that Belli won MVP after hitting 263 for the second half.

    Cody bellinger is the 4th player ever to win rookie of year, gold glove, silver slugger, and MVP all before age 25.

    I honestly wouldnít have been shocked if yellich won it. Couldnít go wrong either way in my opinion but obviously Iím happier with this outcome

    Looking at the splits for Christian yellich, his first half splits are almost identical to his second half splits (and projections). Thatís consistency

    Codi better not turn out to be Keshaw 2.0. Great in the regular season and chokes come playoff time. Last 3 seasons he hasn't performed come playoff time.

    I guess an MVP makes those second-half struggles just wash away. lol

    Sounds like Kenta is not happy with his role.

    Dodgers tried to restructure his contract so that he would make more money in a swing role but he wasnít having it; he is adamant on being a starter.

    That said, if the FO does decide to go all in and break the LT threshold then I could see them paying good money for a starter/s and shipping Maeda elsewhere - maybe as part of a Lindor package. After all, Maeda has 4 years left with a minimum of $3.125M to a maximum of $11.125M against the LT per year. That makes him a very valuable trade piece for a small market team like the Indians.

    For general context on the team-friendliness of his contract - due to the structure of his incentives, Maeda could start 28 games, pitch 189 2/3 innings, win a Cy Young award and still only earn $8.625M for the year.

    Yeah Iíve seen that and heís posted an updated 10 minute long video that talks about more things too. Heís a fun guy to watch on YouTube. I think the asstros probably figured out a way to do it differently during the playoffs because the playoffs is a far bigger scale of viewership than during the regular season obviously. It could be possible that they use mics underneath their helmet or something.

    I'm actually glad that they're getting rid of a lot of minor league teams so they can have a clean A, AA, and AAA with nothing in between.
