    While people are on the topic of these imo rather fun but not that usefull charts, look up Addison Bargers chart for some fap material.

    Probably likelihood of him achieving some WAR threshold. Like 4-5+ WAR in a season or cumulative performance over career/team control.

    Insidethepark covered it. Basically experienced players that would be at A+ have been cut in favour of less experienced projects / prospects that in previous years would be playing at a lower level.

    Are we going to sit here pretend this chart means absolutely fuck all? I literally cackled when I saw the comparison to Acuna and I didn't even know I was physically capable of that.

    Maybe the comparison is acuna right after he tore his ACL

    Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has had a bit of an up and down season, but aside from a 5 week stretch early on where he really struggled he's largely been excellent with the bat.

    Vlad started out hot in the first few weeks of the season. He was squaring up baseballs regularly and ground balls were kept well in check.

    April 8 to April 23

    .333/.393/.648, OPS of 1.042, WRC+ 185
    Average exit velocity 94.2 MPH, barrel rate 19.5%, launch angle 10.5 degrees
    ground ball rate 36.6%

    Vlad hit the skids in the 5 or so weeks to follow. Average exit velocity dropped but was still very solid, hard hit rate was still very good as well, but his ground ball rate skyrocketed and he stopped barreling up baseballs.

    April 24 to May 31

    .209/.319/.339, OPS of .658, WRC+ 83
    Average exit velocity 92.6 MPH, barrel rate 6.2%, launch angle 2.7 degrees
    ground ball rate 56.7%


    Vlad has been really caught fire since the All Star Break, but going back further to the start of June he has been on a very nice run at the plate. Average exit velocity and hard hit rates have remained pretty constant from the period where he struggled, however barrel rate has jumped as he's hitting the ball hard in the air more frequently. Ground ball rate is improved but still a bit high while average launch angle has crept up a bit.

    May 31 to Aug. 5

    .318/.377/.57, OPS of .948, WRC+ 165
    Average exit velocity 92.7 MPH, barrel rate 12.2%, launch angle 4.4 degrees
    ground ball rate 48.1%

    Hopefully Vlad can hit another gear to end the season to help carry the club into the playoffs. He can provide elite offence in many different ways, whether it's when he goes on home run tears, or is producing tons of line drive base hits. We haven't seen a stretch where everything comes together for him as he's been a bit swing happy at times and looked a bit in between in his approach at times as well.

    I mean, he’s older than Julio right now. Julio is the next him.

    Does this guy have historical stats so we can see his hits and misses?

    I shouldn't be surprised that is all you took from the chart. If percentiles in key offensive categories isn't enough for you, how would you suggest we measure players?

    Mayza, Springer and Strip to the IL. They knew about the last two.

    Deadline moves looking even more minimalistic juxtaposed against our competitions.

    Really need a Twins split today.
