  1. this saddens me, but rodon might be a viable trade candidate after the season. he has a reasonable $27 aav, but if they want to sign Soto and go big on, say, a burnes, rodon could be a good chip.

    1. Then we should really, really hope they sign Soto before they realize it.

    2. my gripe w dominguez is that he strikes out a fair amount. that shit does not play against elite pitching, ie in the playoffs. bat to ball, bregmans and Brantley types are my strong preference.

      I’m not saying go all in ($18m aav) on yoshida types, but the sentiment remains.

    3. i added some links of jasson in the field performing admirably with some other notable metrics regarding his speed in an attempt
      to persuade anyone that thinks he would not be an adequate fielder.

      it was no approved or expired. anyway, you can search for the highlights of someone that has played 80% of their games in center.

    4. he had -0.8 fdwar. in 8 games. that’s a crappier rate than a non-fielding player

    5. 8 games is a tiny sample size. no errors. -.2 dWar on baseball reference fwiw too.

      “Dominguez’s well above average speed also allows him to make an impact on the bases and in the outfield. He has 30-30 potential, covers plenty of ground in center field and also features at least a plus arm.”

      i really don’t want to wait till next year for a guy who can make a difference yesterday.

    6. the totality of his numbers are not SSS. IMO.

      Many teams would have run him out of spring training last year after the show he put on: .455 .520 1.045

    7. KC makes sense – except, okay, perhaps except in continuing this subthread.

  2. I meant to note in the write-up that while I don’t even know that he necessarily is a GOOD announcer, Ricky Ricardo has about three million percent more personality than Justin Shackil, so if they have to pick one of their current radio guys to get the full-time gig, I think it should be Ricardo. He also gets along very well with Suzyn.

    1. How many quazillion percent more is that, then, than Flash has?

      And his name is freaking Ricky Ricardo! Okay, I know it isn’t, but it is, and that’s good enough.

      And if we could only convince him to announce in Ricky Ricardo’s voice… !!!!!!!!!!

    1. How much investment does it require? I used to know every player’s slightest stat, I now really just follow one team, so I’d probably get slaughtered, but I might give it a shot.

    2. well I think we’d all have to use steam. it’s not tedious like normal OOTP. idk cost

  3. Saw some crazy stats –
    Judge breaks the all time record for most HRs in the first 1,000 games of a career (and he’s only played 902)
    Judge had 30 xBH in 30 games; not done since DiMaggio in 1937
    Gil has the lowest H per 9 over the first 20 games of a career since 1920. (Dead ball era)

    Thats some pretty crazy stuff

    1. Only three times since at least 1901.

      players with more than 30 extra-base hits in a single-season 30-game span, since at least 1901:

      2024 Aaron Judge
      1937 Joe DiMaggio
      1928 Chick Hafey

    1. That was the case with the old site, too. Links are treated by most sites as “let’s hold this off until someone approves it,” ya know?

    2. I think they only need to be approved if you edit something within the post.

    3. I feel like sometimes I post a link and it doesn’t need approval but I dunno

  5. Just occurs to me that Volpe’s streak ends only after he loses TWO challenges in the same game! The first he should have lost, but it was a great and barely made catch, that’s normally a base hit. And the second might have brushed him – which means it really shouldn’t have been overturned.
    Crazy stuff, really.

  6. When we lose the division by a game will the Meredith ask about the game Judge and Stanton sat?
    Is it totally out of the realm of possibility there will be a situation where they need Stanton to play RF?

    1. It’s just total madness. And against a pitcher having a great season, to boot! While the Orioles are about to sweep the Rays in four games!

  7. There’s a level of play that compels Boone to sit you, an impulse too strong for him to hope to control, even if you’re Aaron F*ing Judge.
