I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Don't agree with taking Jake out
Agree. He's been hitting, Reddick has not.

Straw was just outmatched there. You can't stand there & take that pitch with 2 strikes. Gotta swing the bat. Otherwise, don't even take it to the box with you.

Man, am I ever ready to get all of our regulars back.

Sanchez is laughably bad at defense

Watching him frame pitches 6" off the plate looks like that little league gif that was posted earlier this week.

Almost unwatchable at this point. So horrible at doing anything with RISP. At least just ****ing swing the bat.

Straw has hit as well as anyone on the team. Had a bad AB, but he's not the problem.

Straw K'ed on a nasty 3-2 slider right at the bottom of the zone.

That was a perfect pitch

Then get a bat on it and foul it off. That **** is taught in LL. Can't just stand there with 2 strikes.

Solid outing by Brad.

Let's get some runs.

Looking back, Peacock made a pretty good pitch. It was low just barley catching a piece of the zone (as I recall). How Sanchez hit it 481' is suspicious.

I want old Breggy and Tuve back. They're sorely missed.

Time to test Sanchez for PED's. The difference between this year and last year is insane. Nobody develops that much in one offseason.


Some may say the same about Bregman.


Bregman Did what he did in his 1st full season.

Sanchez has played multiple seasons as an average at best power hitter who was an easy out in the playoffs. Now he has 25 HR's and 52 RBI's in June.

The comparison you made is awful.
Bregman
Year PA HR PA/HR
2016 216 8 27
2017 626 19 32.9
2018 705 31 22.7
2019 330 21 15.71


Sanchez
Year PA HR PA/HR
2016 229 20 11.45
2017 525 33 15.9
2018 374 18 20.8
2019 231 22 10.5

Bregman has shown a far more drastic increase since he came into the league. Sanchez started out slugging from the get-go.

ETA: Bregman gain between 2017 WS and 2018 spring training.




So Bregman got abs and realized his 1st round potential fairly early in his career.

Sanchez was an easy out who hit Homer's against bad pitchers. This pace he's on is suspicious. He's never been the guy to golf a low outside pitch 485 feet like he did tonight.

Your numbers show Sanchez hitting less HR's per AB each season. Bergman's trend has always been up, not down like Sanchez.

So there shouldn't be any Ks ever then huh?

Sanchez hit likely the longest HR i've ever seen in MMP off Giles last year. 485 feet tonight is crazy, but the guy hits bombs.

Take it it to the extreme much? It was a horrible at bat with RISP down by 1. Swing the ****ing bat, at least once while you're up there.
