    Epic Fail from fangraphs here. So many prospect websites missed on Chapman even though his talent was slapping everyone in the face. 4 fWAR in 488 PA

    I some cases yes

    But I'd still rather be paying Russel Martin 15M than have D'Arnaud at league min and needing two other guys to back him up

    Or you know, we could have split Martin and D'Arnaud time to take the workload off both of them. Yes I realize we probably don't sign Martin with d'Arnaud

    Guys like Luke Maile, Salty, Miguel Montero, Navarro, Josh Thole combined for tons of negative fWAR between the past 3 or 4 seasons

    And the knowledge that he chose JPA as the catcher. And fought to keep Sanchez out of the deal but moved Thor

    It's a such a poor narrative that no one he traded did anything. Only Thor became a star. In total Donaldson provided so much excess value that it makes up for the rest (and Reyes, Happ also put up some positive value)

    Musgrove 1.9 fWAR still hasn't hit arbitration
    Disco 5.1 fWAR but lost to injury now.
    Hendo Alvarez 4.1 fWAR trying to make a comeback from injury now.
    Marisnick 3.7 fWAR first year of arbitration
    Yunel 8.1 fWAR and $63M in excess value

    There was definitely some value that wound up going the other way in those deals although it's interesting that out of all those guys, besides Syndergaard, Yunel provided the most value. Most of the other guys providing value are back end pitchers.

    I think Henderson Alvarez' career as an MLB pitcher is likely over. It's been three years, which is a pity because I liked him a lot.

    Also I just looked Marisnick's stats this year. He has somehow managed to strike out in 47% of his AB's.

    4\5 with 3 HR for Austin Riley today in AAA. Just promoted to AAA last week. 21 yrs old.

    Braves / Spooge / Jets 3B of the future (like, next month)

    Bc he is human. Vlad is not human so he doesn't have slumps.

    MLB's a different animal, hence every prospect ever.

    Wasn't Riley a pitcher when he was drafted though? He's doing pretty awesome considering.

    I love the braves farm system, although AA will probably decimate it in the near future.
    I donít suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

    Maybe, but there's also the possibility he learned something from the debacle he put the Jays in and won't repeat it

    Does that mean we'll start hear less about him in the various threads?

    I was scrolling through Fangraphs leaderboards to see if I could find the last teenager before Vlad who combined a sub-10% K rate with a .200+ ISO in AA, but I gave up and I'm pretty sure it hasn't happened in decades, if ever.
