I can't see how his defense would be worse that oven mitts over there.

At this point, I'd take my chances with Chas or Jake playing first.

According to Fangraphs the lowest single-season WAR in the modern era was Jerry Royster in 1977 for the Braves with a -3.8

Abreu came in -1.1 and went 0-4 plus the defensive fail. The pace is promising.

One other potential option at 1B: Matt Mervis. He was a highly regarded prospect a few years ago for the Cubs who flopped last year but has been raking at AAA. I doubt he will ever be good given how much he K's but he should be cheap given he's already blocked at 1B by Busch and the fortunate thing about our situation is bad is actually an upgrade from historically terrible so it doesn't take much to add value.

The man can do anything, he's rumored to be in the lead for Ohtani's new interpreter

I know some posters on here love Jake… but I just like Dubon in the lineup everyday over him. If they won't play dubon at first which I don't think they will… then he needs to be the everyday CF. He's just a better overall ball player than Jake in means of actual production on the field… not advanced stats… production.

And only 1 RBI. Dubon has 11.

Dana and crew need to look at the YTD baseball card stats.

Corey Julks actually had an outfield assist from RF to himself at 1B. He's a 6 tool player.

I must have imagined numerous posts that I can no longer find on this thread. I'm beginning to question my memory.
I love Texas Aggie sports, but I love Texas A&M more.

Or, he could actually be used as a utility guy like he's supposed to as well.

Jake needs playing time.

For all the crapola we have been watching this year, we are 4 games out do the division lead, and 6.5 out of the coveted bye.

Just have to get healthy and get our freaking heads right

Anyone have any idea how long they're gonna give abreu?

Same question for Hader though I'm sure that's a long leash

Didn't Qualls go to Arizona or Tampa or somewhere like that after us and actually do pretty well? It seemed to be another guy that got better as soon as he left the organization but maybe I'm not remembering correctly

No you're right.

I thought he sucked with us then went to ARI and was really good for them then came back to us and sucked again.

I remember him having two stints with us.

The thing about Dubon or Jake... one of them needs to play 1B. They are all better hitters than Abre-doodoo

Agreed.

If you make him the everyday CFer then you're getting more Kessinger. Not sure that's the move we want.

Dubon has been doing well. He's not outhitting Jake yet based on actual results. They're fairly similar. If you look at the batted ball data plus K & BB then Jake's production is more likely to continue vs Doobie's assuming they continue to hit the bal as they have.

Dubon has basically been Barry Bond, Mike Trout, & Babe Ruth rolled into one with RISP this year. Where most of the team has **** the bed, he's excelled. It's clearly not sustainable though.

Defensively Doobie has had a few miscues. Hes 0-2 on 5* (no shame in that). Only 10 of those have been made all year. He's also 0-1 on 3*. Jake leads the team in defensive value.

They both need to see the field. Jake more so in CF. Dubon more so as a 5th OF/UTL.

Pretty impressive to be sitting at -1 WAR only 20 games into the season.

What's even more impressive is he's only played 16 games.
