    Who had Espinal leading the team in fWAR with 1.2 by mid-May? Very cool.

    Gausman has double that.

    But if you mean strictly offensive players…I think we all did. Vlad who?

    This autopsy in the media about the Brett Gardner signing attempt is annoying. I do not want Brett Gardner for any million.

    Surely we can do better in adding depth on a team that wants to win the WS.

    Best lineup of the year for today's game. Vladdy finally hitting second is what I desperately wanted.

    Yeah

    How many games have been lost with Vladdy waiting on deck?

    What's a little concerning is that Shatkins actually made the offer.

    Vlad hasn’t really been hitting much the past couple weeks anyways, does it even matter?

    Yes it does, he hasn't been last years Vlad yet, but he's on a 12/13 game hit streak and still hit well above average in the last 2 weeks, that's silly, the more AB's the better.

    This is true. He’s clearly off right now (this hitting streak includes more than a few ground ball singles) but he’s still the best hitter on the team.

    Lets see how long he lasts in the 2 hole this time

    Springer, LGJ, Chapman and Tapia have been black-holes in this time frame... like WOOF, bad. I love Vlad in the 2 hole. These fuckers need to get it together like, yesterday.

    I know it doesn't seem like he's been his normal self, but he has a 132 wRC+ in the past 2 weeks. What's weird is that he only has 3 extra base hits in that time.

    Strikes me as so indicative of our offensive woes to lose at the Trop yesterday on an inning set up by 2 LHH (Lowe & Franco) who flicked soft singles away on 2 good pitches away by Manaoh. Then an E by our best defender who has been great. Boom 3-0. A lead which seems insurmountable these days.

    While we celebrate EV, and for good reason, sometimes you just have to take what the pitchers are giving you for the scoreboard sake.

    Seriously how does Jeffrey Springs shut down Toronto's offense?

    The Jays hitters are all headcases right now. They need multiple sports psychologists.

    Things are so weird. Is it possible the ball is not only dead but wildly inconsistent?

    Vlad hit 3 line drives yesterday, all with EVs of around 95. On TV all looked squared up. Maybe he's just missing them and it's hard to tell on TV? Manoah said something about balls being inconsistent and some feeling squishy.

    Or maybe in some stadiums balls are humidored too much? Like maybe the Rays are doing this on purpose and they know it. An exit velocity approach is a fools errand against highly humidor treated balls. lol. Not that I know much about this.

    What happens if you put a ball in a humidor and crank up the settings? Could a clever team use this to their advantage? Let the other team hit drives that will go no where, while they know it's a fools errand so just try to slap singles the other way?
    If we don't win this year we'll win next year, if we don't win next year we'll win the year after that.

    Its a possibility. MLB should be policing/enforcing a set humidity rate but I wouldn’t be surprised if they haven’t been monitoring it. We already know the league is extremely inept.

    I have a feeling the whole humidor thing was rolled out in the first place so that MLB can tweak the humidity settings throughout the season and bump offense up or down on command.

    The question is, are they even policing the humidor settings in each stadium? Is this the Umpire’s job, or the equipment manager? If its the latter… we already know teams cheat in convoluted ways
