Giancarlo Stanton’s Concerning Contact Rate

Giancarlo Stanton has always had a lot of swing and miss in his game, offsetting all the whiffs with ridiculous power displays on his way to being one of the game’s elite sluggers. So when you look at Stanton’s 2016 numbers, it’s easy to just look at the overall line (which includes a 115 wRC+) and note the unsustainably low .256 BABIP — he’s at .324 for his career, given...

Puig benched for not hustling, cracks Don Mattingly joke

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was yanked from Tuesday night’s game against the Cincinnati Reds for admiring a long RBI single. Puig smoked a ball off the right field wall in the bottom of the sixth, scoring Trayce Thompson to give the Dodgers a 4-2 lead. When he hit it, Puig clearly thought he had an opposite-field home run, so he admired the shot for a moment. That...

Is Marcell Ozuna Breaking Out?

Marcell Ozuna is the third-best outfielder on his team. He can’t match the power and discipline of Giancarlo Stanton, and he can’t match the patient, contact-oriented approach of rising star Christian Yelich. Partially related to those two statements, Yelich and Stanton have signed contracts worth nearly $400 million total while Ozuna, despite possessing more service time than...

Christian Yelich Is Starting to Soar

You know who’s figuring it out? Christian Yelich! Not that Yelich ever didn’t have it figured out — his big-league career began with three consecutive 117 wRC+ seasons. He was as steady as anyone you could find, but he kept on occasionally hinting at more, and now he’s showing more more often. He’s 24, and he’s being coached by Barry Bonds. People everywhere kind of saw...

The case for Realmuto as the Miami Marlins leadoff hitter

Dee Gordon will likely be back in the leadoff position for the Miami Marlins once he returns from his 80-game suspension. Without him, Don Mattingly has the chance to experiment with his starting lineup. So far, he has made some interesting combinations. None, however, have been as startling as having J.T. Realmuto in the leadoff spot. Let that sink in. Miami’s starting catcher...

Marlins OF goes on 14-game hitting streak using Barry Bonds' bats

Marlins base-running error turns two-run home run into just one

When is a two-run home run not a two-run home run? When the batter hitting the homer passes a base runner in front of him at first base and just one run scores. One of the more bizarre plays you will see this season around Major League Baseball was witnessed in Miami in a game between the Marlins and Milwaukee Brewers. J.T. Realmuto took one deep over the fence in the bottom of...
