Re: Tracking - Alonso, Grandal, Volquez, Boxberger, Sappelt, Wood, Torreyes
Yonder Alonso now has a .730 OPS in just about 700 plate appearances since being traded. Remember when people wanted to keep him instead of Joey Votto?
Dave Sappelt has yet to accumulate 100 plate appearances on the rebuilding Cubs (despite now being 26 years old). His OPS this year (in an obviously small sample size) is .250. Remember when people thought he was the starting CF of the future?
This regime has PROVEN that it really knows what it's doing when it comes to trading prospects. No one gets it right all the time, but I have full faith in their ability to sort out who to deal and who to keep.
It will be interesting to see who, if anyone, gets dealt in order to upgrade the OF, the only noticeable weakness on the roster.
*Of course the jury is still out on Grandal vs. Mesoraco, but I don't think anyone is lamenting that decision based off of current performances...
