  1. It's a balancing thing. Al Kaline wouldn't be rated as high as he is among all-time rightfielders if it wasn't for his defense, which WAR gives him a lot of value. Alternatively, people overrate Jeter's defense, whereas WAR shows that his defense is average to below average.
  2. There was probably a half truth in there. Like Darwin Barney has a better defensive rating than Miggy...and that's it.
  3. Victor Reyes has always played the outfield, even in the minor leagues.
  4. The problem I have with Reyes is that he had a .384 BABIP last year. He is surely going to regress this year if given enough playing time. And he only had a 4.8% walk rate with a 21.9% strikeout rate. I don't see him having much success, let alone as a leadoff hitter that I'm afraid Gardenhire will try to use him as. Jones' defense numbers are weird. In 2018, he had a 10 DRS, which is very good considering the amount of playing time he had. In 2019, it was -13, which puts him in the bottom 3 among outfielders (min. 700 innings). Those are two extremes and I don't know which one to believe. As far as batting, his power kinda surprised me. I wonder if he's about to have a .200 ISO in 2020. I have no faith in Demeritte. I'm still holding out hope for Stewart, but he's going to have to show something in 2020. I still want them to put Goodrum in RF and Harold Castro at SS. Goodrum at SS has disaster written all over it.
  5. MiLB tv is $15 for the whole season. Not sure what the blackout rules are though. https://www.milb.com/live-stream-games/subscribe
  6. Knowing Gardenhire, he'd just play them at SS and 3B anyway.
  7. Verlander did have arm troubles in 2014-15 and it did result in loss of velocity. Some people believed it was the start of his decline. Then he recovered, regained his velocity and dominance.
  8. This is the reason why circumstantial evidence doesn't hold up in court.
  9. It wasn't me who laid it out, it was someone else.
