Humor

Post by ratman44 » Fri Jan 17, 2020 6:24 pm

I just read the comment on Hernandez for the trade block. Sorry I find that absurd. “Rare to find a catcher that hits like this.”

He has never started an all star game, so someone has always out hit him. Then he has only been to 5 all star games. Baltimore now has 2 catchers that are better hitters and then Kokos in Cleveland is better. He doesn’t seem so rare.

I know it was the past owner who posted the message but just laughing at the absurdity.

I know I just got here but, ouch. I can't speak for all-star appearances in this league but in my opinion a career OPS of .800 is pretty good for a catcher. I just removed him from the trading block to avoid further ridicule.

Where it looks like the prior owner really went wrong though was letting him convert to RF. Once a catcher over a certain age changes position, even if he played his whole career at C before this, he won't be able to convert back.

Sorry, obviously wasn’t a knock on you, but you said .800 OPS, but Kokos is .896, Segelke is .890, and Drake is .850, but he is just hitting his prime so that should go up. So my point was he wasn’t rare.

Sounds like this is a league with many great hitting catchers, which is even more rare around the site.

Then I guess I am spoiled too. I have had guys like this who were legitimate assassins at catcher.

I dunno, if Kokos, Segelke, and Drake aren't on the market, then Hernandez is rare. I wish I'd have gone after him rather than the back-stop I picked up.

I think this league puts in the effort to convert prospects into catchers, which is a definite plus for any team if you've got the patience.
