good match...maybe fill 2 OF spots
Adam Eaton + AJ Pollock?
"who cares if you hit 40hrs?"
Really? Lol...first off who said his OPS would be .795? He isn't going to hit .220 again...
well yea, I accounted for avout a .025 increase in OPS from last year bringing him up to about .795
but in all seriousness i cant see Ike really above an .815ish OPS, which is solid..
but we can trade him and get more than he's worth
40HR and 100RBI with an .815 OPS is not a real middle of the order slugger..more of a 6th hitter
word has it we can get a good deal for Ike
he isnt a future MVP candidate
You're absolutely right, his power means nothing if his OPS is sub .800
Hopefully he rebounds this season.
"40HR and 100RBI with an .815 OPS is not a real middle of the order slugger..more of a 6th hitter"
if you hit 40hrs with 100 rbi, you are a 3,4, or 5 hitter....not even a question. How many 6th hitters hit 40 hrs last year?
"he isnt a future MVP candidate"
There is no way you could know that...if he has a sick year hitting .290 with 45 hrs, you don't think that would be MVP worthy?
Last night on here I suggested: Niese to Arizona for AJ Pollock (Leadoff LF/CF/RF), Adam Eaton (Bat 2nd LF/CF/RF) and Jake Barrett (future closer).
Too much to give up? Not enough?
I hadn't thought about that actually. This does open up the trade market for Niese.
if Ike hit .290 with 45 HR he could win the MVP...assuming of course his OPS was close to 1.000
