They are using the Baseball Reference WAR
What about rWAR? (Racist WAR)
Watching these other teams reminds me how much I miss the shiny helmets with sticker logos. I hate the matte finish and pop-out insignias
after leaving them loaded that really stings
maybe the crowd can lift them back in it
doesn't appear they're too confused by Manaea
Welp.... this does not seem to be going great.
Bob Melvin also fucked up by not getting to the pen sooner. Maneaa wasn't fooling anybody
Still a lotta game left.
There may not have been a worse trade this decade than the Chris Archer trade. Glasnow looks like an ace after the mechanical fixes, Austin Meadows is a legit stud who posted .922 OPS and Shane Baz is chucking 100 MPH and is looking like at least a mid rotation starter. Archer has been nothing short of awful in 1.5 years with the Pirates... but yeah it is all the coaches fault.
boy that would have been a dumb out at third
Yandy Diaz is in there to hit and that was catchable
Glad we never gave up what the Rays wanted for him
Didn't want him regardless of the price, honestly.
Always seemed overrated to me
what are they feeding D'Arnaud up north?
we gave the guy 1 ab lol
He was good from '13-'15, but has been nowhere close to an ace since then. All the media people saying he needed a change of scenery when really he was part of the problem.
meh, very good June, otherworldly in July, terrible in August and September. Coulda been useful in those earlier months, but he would not have gotten the AB's and Will Smith is just better.
I can't help feeling I'd rather see a Smith/ d' Arnaud catching tandem than Russell. Always have.
But you never know...maybe Russell has some magic left.
wasn't suggesting he's better than Smith
but he seems to have more juice than Martin although at the time he looked like a zero
went to the Mets and did nothing as well
just didn't think he had much of a chance
d'Arnaud is generally regarded as a pretty shitty defender/framer so everything is in his offense and beside that hot start with the Rays, he wasn't anything special the last 40+ games. In all, he barely beat out Martin in WAR while having 150 more AB's than him. I think in terms of a backup, you prefer Martin.
Tie it up
