He should be embarrassed that he looked like a middle aged dad with 3 kids who has limited time to exercise.


I resemble that remark.

Yep. And I only have 2 kids.

I have 3 kids and resemble that remark as well, unfortunately no one pays me to be an athlete like they do White.

JD Davis looked totally overmatched at the plate in every opportunity he had. Sometimes guys just need a change of scenery.

Laureano is a different story. Because of George, he's blocked here and he never showed this in the minors. And to be honest, while he has a plus arm he's a horrible CF. He takes bad routes and misplays lots of balls.

Lauerano makes some great plays but I've also seen him botch some pretty routine plays and take a few bad routes on balls.

I think Jake is easily the better defender.

Jake is an elite OF. Top 10, probably higher.

Laurerano is below average.

Laureano is also going to be prone to severe ups and downs due to BABIP. He's a high K%, low BB% guy who can really be a black hole when the ball in play is finding gloves regularly.

And it does seem like he's an Astro killer a la Mitch Haniger.

One of those guys who never really does anything special at the player until he plays us.

I love Jake, I had always hoped that he could be a plus hitter, unfortunately he just hasn't developed into one.

Jake is the better defender but I think some of you maybe haven't kept track of Laureano's offensive stats.

He's got a real chance to be a guy that hits .300 with 30 HR and 30 steals...he may even do it this season. Plus he plays at the very least a solid centerfield and would be a plus corner outfielder. Would be pretty nice to have a George and him and Tucker as the future of the outfield.

Because he plays in Oakland, Laureano has become a very good player under the radar. His first 155 MLB games:

.285, 38 2b, 26 HR, 77 RBI, 19 SB .847 OPS

As an overall player, Laureano much closer to George than he is to Jake. Jake plays better defense but he has a career .282 OBP. He will never hit well enough to be a regular on a great team.

Really, you're not signing autographs...it's hard as hell to read that. I'll have to google our lineup to see who's playing

sub out Reddick for Diaz's .751 OPS or Jake's .757 OPS

Those numbers are borderline stupid. Possibly the most pure hitter in the lineup...Uncle Mike...has the lowest one of the 7 main hitters. And its not like it sucks either.

How embarrassing. It's like when my sister wrote down all the boys she liked in her junior high journal. What's next, calligraphy?

Love Jake but depending how Luhnow puts together the OF for 2021 I feel really good about having Straw in our back pocket as the 4th

Why don't you stay inside the lines of your own GD business. Cuz you're way over that line.
