    35 steals, 5 caught stealing
    Only 15HR because he changed his swing to become more of a slap hitter that uses his motor to get him lots of singles and legged out doubles.
    Vs lefties and in one of the first two spots in the lineup the guy puts up a nice slash line of .290, .360, .400
    With that speed it gets the job done nicely.
    He can play a mediocre CF, SS, 2B, and 3B though. Not a real good defender anywhere.
    I prefer Kike and we have Taylor but if we lost one of those two you know I would be calling for Villar to become our new utility man extraordinaire.
    Too bad he was sent to the Maryland gulag known as the Orioles.

    That's "Short sighted", and another thing you can learn. ;)

    Peter Dinklage is short sided.

    I’d be ecstatic to watch the Red Sox destroy Verlander

    Perhaps Verlander has a deal with the umps.

    38 games against the O's and Jays can help with that total. Then the entire AL Central was pretty much rebuilding as well. Doesn't mean they aren't a good team, just that good AL teams got to feast on a league of shit.

    I just can’t remember that flawed of an elite team. They have like 8-9 good players.

    and it is not like their starting pitching doesn't have holes too(when it comes to postseason performance). They have been carried by a great great offense and those usually can't carry you alone.

    The Astros are terrifying. I'm not sure they can be beat

    Probably not. But then I thought LA couldn't lose to them last Fall either.

    If LA makes it that far, it'll be painful to watch them get beat on, but IF IF IF three or four of these hitters (PUIG, CODY, TAYLOR) were to just go crazy, anything can happen.

    Even if it goes to shit, and even when this team pisses me off often ... I'm glad I'm not an Astros fan. I've been to Houston. I'd prefer Istanbul. Houston sucks ass.

    And they have two of the best hitters in the game, two really good hitters in Benentendi and Xander, and then garbage. Even the offense isn’t like, deep or historically great

    Been there a dozen times. Worse than Cleveland. Other than Goode Co BBQ a nuke could hit that shithile and I wouldn't even blink.

    Their XW-L was 103 wins, so they overachieved there. Still good, but not a historical pace.

    Houston XW-L 109 wins
    Dodgers XW-L 102 wins
