We have a useless baseball player currently on the roster, his name is Torres. Not as good defensively as he was advertised, no pop in his bat. Not as fast on the basepaths as Pagan.
Pagan has 8 stole bases, which would lead the team. Pagan has 4 hrs, which would be 2nd on the team. He's hitting near 300.
I dont care how dumb Pagan may have been at times, but atleast we could count on him to hit. He would also be the best defensive outfielder on our team.
Sandy failed us on this one.
Pagan was pretty good offensively for us when he was here. The problem people had with him was his lapse in concentration and making dumb decisions.
I know it may be "early" but how many games have we lost due to Duda's bad defense out there. Or dumb errors by Kirk.
Yet the team still has a winning record. Here's my post from another thread on this same subject: TorresScored 13 runs in 22 games
PaganScored 22 runs in 40 games
Torres10 RBIs in 22 games
Pagan13 RBIs in 40 games
Looks to me that in spite of Torres being out with that calf injury, they're pretty close in OBP and Pagan has just 3 more RBIs than Torres, even though Pagan played in 18 more games. If you extrapolate Torres's runs scored in 22 games vs. Pagan's runs scored in 40 games, Torres actually wins out there too. The big difference is avg right now. Based on their career avgs, you'd have to believe that'll probably even out by the time the season ends.
Too early to call whether this was a good swap or not.
Nah I am still not convinced
"Sandy failed us on this one."
Oh yeah, absolutely. If we still had Pagan in CF with his .270 or whatever average, we'dbe favorites for the WS!
I know I exaggerate, but seriously?
"I guess since two months tells the whole story 100 percent of the time, then Albert Pujols is a huge bust signing. "
Let's not forget Reyes too. .250 average for a former batting champ? Pfft.
