Re: BP: Reds Transaction Analysis-Wily Mo Pena, Ross etc.
while overvaluing RH's that have trouble with LH hitters, flyball pitchers in a HR park and topping 200 ip once. at age 29.
Never said my opinion was infallible. IMO this arguement will be settled sometime in October. Thing is WMP is likely to still be playing meaningful games. playoff games.
I know WMP has a low OBP. I'm of the opinion that is something he can raise. He's said it was a problem area that he intends to work on, and I think he'll be around .325 this year. And yeah, that is still pretty bad, but he'll SLG over .500. Plus he has a strong Dominican contingent around him, which could help.
“I’ll just take my walk,” he said, to laughter. One reporter followed up that Hamilton might be able to score from first on a single. “If he does, that’s great. Isn’t that crazy? Think about that: I hit a single and got an RBI. Like I said, crude stat, right?”
