Probably a little gun-shy from Tucker last year. He looked like a kid whose balls hadn't dropped yet trying to swing Babe Ruth's bat.

Yordan is a man.

Maybe, but more so I have a better appreciation for a compact swing, like a Bregman, in which it is short and quick.

He was safe. Not sure why the Astros didn't challenge.

Trying to get on Toronto's good side by not running up the score in hopes of a bargain for Stroman

So do I, but Yordan's reminds me of a LH Dave Winfield. Dave did OK with his.

Reddick keeps hitting. Straw keeps hitting. Yordan is destroying the baseball. Brantley is having an all-star season. George was having an MVP season.

Straw and Yordan ain't going anywhere. I believe Jake has an option remining. Will be interesting to see what happens.

I'll take a Dave Winfield.

Jake is a fast, great runner and defensive super plus. Perfect for a late inning sub in the playoffs.

Jake is out of options. I'm almost certain so is Kemp and so is Stassi.

Man you aren't lying, what a great comparison.

Very true, but you can't have 2 guys in that same role. Assuming full health you've got to have George, Brantley, Reddick and Alvarez in the OF and Yuli, Altuve, Correa, Bregman and Diaz as infielders. Plus two catchers that only leaves room for 2 position players.

Maybe they are comfortable enough with Straw and Jake as the 2, but you'd think they would want a guy off the bench with some pop like Tucker.

I get it. But guys that can save runs in the playoffs are always valuable.

Jake had 2 options coming into last season. Doesn't that mean he has to have one left?

Jake will be on the post season roster.

My bet for the other spot at this time would be Straw.
