WHen it comes to Mitch it is obvious the team is working to make him better. The off season coaching changes show this.
Mitch's issues primarily come from reading defenses pre-snap and post-snap. I think what happened is that NAgy and company were far too concerned with getting Mitch to...
"To close with a general idea: home/road splits tell you a lot about what’s happened. But wRC+ tells you more about what’s going to happen. Sometimes a player really might be a product of his environment, but those cases are less frequent than one can be led to believe."...
Looks like I am the first to say this, but hell no to a Bryant/Arenado swap.
Arenado screams of a player that benefits greatly from Coors. His away WRC+ is at 109, where Bryant is at 133+.
This would be a major blunder by Theo and I hope to god he is looking at those home/away splits.
@beckdawg I am thinking the Cubs are collecting all the BP arms to see which ones have a good first half. If the Cubs are in contention they will stay pat with the arms, but if a few play great and the team is out of it, it means great trade bait to retool.
Baseball America Rankings:
Amaya didn't crack top 100, but I think it is fair to say the system is much better than the last few years. I expect a BeckDawg write up pronto.
Also don't do Portillo's or Lou Malnattis, they aren't as good as advertised. The best deep dish is Pequods, and POrtillos is just a hot dog joint with decent sandwiches from the suburbs. If the wife loves Japanese food the recommendation of Sunda is seconded.
