Then you missed my point.
A little while ago, Salas had given uo zero HR's.
I mentioned previously that Salas was giving up sufficient FB's to suggest he should be giving up a reasonable number of HR's.
He then gave up 3 very quickly, suggesting he was simply regressing to the norm.
That's what saberstats told me.
I never said he would give up a inordinate amount of HR's, just that he would regress to the norm. Which he did.
Much like "clutch and late" hasn't been very clutch either late or anytime else these days.
Since I believe "clutch" is not a repeatable skill, and especially not with a AAAA player like Daniel, I'd suggest that he's simply a victim of regressing to his norm in terms of cluth hits.
He has over 200 PA's of .666 OPS.
Guys like Descalso can he OK if their AB's are very limited.
Now, lets discuss Berkman. I can't believe he's still hitting, but he keeps doing it, even against LH pitching. So, do you give him an extension? How much and how many years. How far would you go?
