2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wait a sec, Jeff! Last two years I've had wRC+ of 135 and 143. I'm fat AND phat! Are you underrating my bat, or are you saying Oscar is going to be a hitter of epic quality? Thanks for chatting!
(Matt Adams from Harrumphing)
Ok Matt, you're really going to make me say it, aren't you? Fine, here goes. You're a platoon player, Matt. Your career OPS against left-handed pitching is .596 (versus .893 against righties). Against lefties, you're basically Steve Jeltz. You can do one thing - hit right handed pitching - and you do it very well. There is a role for you in the big leagues as a platoon first baseman, but you're going to get overexposed as an everyday player. You're getting away with it right now because of a .376 BABIP, but it's coming. And the huge drop in walk rate is only going to make it worse. Most importantly, you are not Oscar Taveras, who is very, very good. I'm sorry, but you brought this on yourself. Now stop calling me and I'm blocking you on Facebook. (Jeff Moore)
