Anyone else noticing that Russell is pretty shaky lately?
I believe I questioned the extension for Fleita at the time. The timing is odd though, I'll say.
Brett Jackson has 18 strikeouts in 35 plate appearances so far this year. This is pretty frightening.
7 years, $60 million according to ESPN.
The contract covers four years of arb (he will be a super two) and three of FA.
The concerns about Jackson's K rate seem to have been borne out and then some. Dude's striking out in over half his ABs (yet, with a decent walk rate and isolated power). I don't know if it's lack of bat speed or what, but THAT sort of inability to make contact is a huge obstacle to his being a worthwhile player. If he got the K's down to 1 a game, we could have a Granderson/Lankford type player on our hands, but that seems like a tall order. I wonder if there's precedent for a guy with contact issues this severe becoming successful at the MLB level.
Anyone want to explain what any of the players are doing on the major league roster?
I don't think Scott Maine is necessarily better than Hinshaw. Scott Maine sucks.
patient, lefthanded, and defensively sound version of Alfonso Soriano in that respect.
