It seems obvious to me it's not going to be chase, wright is in, LaRussa is going to bring Freese, if he's not already in. Then it's
Hanley Ramirez or Chase Headley? Obvious choice IMO.
He's not going to have 4 3b on the roster.
How many gold glove does cement shoes have. Zero or something I think. If he gets the nod it is our of pure mercy. Average players typically don't go to the ASG.
Really highlights the sad current player situation in padres land. When we don't have even one standout high ceiling player. Not one.
Since gold gloves are a good measure of defensive ability...
Chase Headley isn't just average for his position. Something you continue to ignore.
Well what you are looking at are raw stats which do not take into account he plays half his games in the worst offensive park in baseball. Apparently you do not take that into account either. Something you still should have noticed though is his OBP is much higher than anyone but Wright. This is a huge advantage for him over Freese, especially when park is considered. OPS+ shows him to be better than Freese to date and he is a better defender than Freese.
Here is an example for you. Home his slash is 266/366/370, but the NL as a whole is only 227/303/341. While you may consider his home numbers poor, this shows they are well above average for Petco. He is an outstanding hitter for the park.
what's the latest on Sandoval's legal problemthat story just seems to have disappeared from the news
LaRussa is rumored to now be leaning to taking Grandal....LOL
I didn't know Sandoval had any legal problems. I don't visit the Giants site. Cooties.
Can you believe Giant fans actually voted for Crawford at SS (1.3M votes)? The Dbacks have pitchers that hit better than him.
