SMITTY!!!!!! Quit typing so fast!
Did other teams make trades based on expectations of suspensions?
The way people are describing Iglesias, it sounds like Brendan Ryan, more than Andrelton Simmons, is a good comparable?
Iglesias is 23 and doesn't have to do much at the plate to contribute in a positive fashion. he will be playing for a manager and organization that will let him do his thing without nagging on what he doesn't do.
Can somebody explain Iglesias' contract situation. I thought he got a MLB contract so he would have two seasons left before FA, but bb-ref has him as an FA in 2019. He is out of options, right?
Arbitration and FA eligibility depends on major league service time, not 40-man roster service time.
I hope they don't trade for Young. Apparently he told PHI that he will only agree to be traded to Texas.
I read the whole thread, and didn't see this point: Iglesias might be a better offensive fit in Tiger Stadium than in any other AL ballpark.
Iglesias is *23*
And a run saved is a run scored.
The Belliard comp looks pretty much perfect to me.
Some foreign professionals get early FA in their contracts. Cespedes did.
Somewhere between Belliard and Brendan Ryan, Ryan was actually a much better hitter than Belliard (which tells you all you need to know about Belliard's bat)
The Belliard comp looks pretty much perfect to me. Tremendous, tremendous glove, good enough that Belliard stayed in the majors for 17 years, but was never quite a regular because he hit like a pitcher and managers were usually trying to get some extra pop in their lineups. Seems likely Iglesias is headed for a similar career. But for now he's a good option to plug the Tigers' shortstop hole until someone that can play shortstop and OPS+ at least 70 comes along.
Bogaerts (impossible to be worse than WMB and probably would be better than Drew)
They go with
The fact that calling up WMB wasn't their immediate move is weird and a bit scary, though.
NOT his initials.
It's fairly rare, outside of guys coming from Japan. I'm pretty sure Iglesias did not get this.
If you have to invent data to prove your point, your point is crap
And a run not scored is the same as one scored past a diving Jeter.
but Iglesias is gonna have to have a GREAT glove (not good) and he's going to have have had to improved substantially and atypically as a hitter if he's gonna have a career as anything other than defensive sub
A. Simmons leads all SS's with 4.0 Bwar....his line is lower than what ZIPS has for Iggy moving forward this year.
IOW, I disagree.
ZiPS projects him to hit .273/.318/.330 the rest of the way, my money is on the under
but its not like he'd be the only player who made large strides after making the majors
I think people would be more inclined towards this POV if some of his peripherals were better (iso, isoD, walk %, etc) but it's really just an absurdly BABIP rate that's driving his slash line and once that falls back to normal there goes any offensive value.
68? You're very generous. I accept. Name the terms (and, let me say, without any bitterness, that I haven't collected on my Wily Mo bets made here some years ago...not that you were involved in that...just saying).
