    Arenado with his 42nd HR and 42nd double and now 130 RBI

    Rockies up 6-1 (I don't care at all about that score just like following excellent players as they excel)

    Looks like Balester is on board with the plan, leadoff 4 pitch walk.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    He is on the verge of being a megastar. But his OBP is holding him back. Only a wRC+ of 117 and a WAR of just over 4. Not a Coors mirage as his H/R splits are similar. Interesting guy to follow.

    Could never figure out that mentality. What exactly is the difference between a 2nd or 3rd draft pick? is there a Jordan out there? An Aaron Rodgers. Oh that's right Jordan wasn't the top pick. And Rodgers was what... #24?

    It is what it is at this point.

    Specific examples aside there are graphs out there that show the type of player you should expect to get exponentially drops for the first few picks. I understand never rooting for the Reds to lose. But I don't understand the guffawing at the thought of the 2nd pick being better than the 4th.

    He's one of those guys in a position that I'm not quite as sure about....yeah he needs some more walks but batting 4th without much of anything behind him....I wonder how many of his 88 extra base hits came when he maybe could've been more patient and took a walk later in the AB....yeah he obviously increased his total of outs made but 88 extra base hits....hard for me to fathom taking those extra outs made combined with a huge extra base hit number vs maybe working a 1 or 2 out walk with not much behind him to knock in.

    I don't want this post to blow up the board but I have trouble believing his team would have scored more runs unless he had a great amount more walks.

    Cheesehead here. packers beat Dallas the last game of the year and got Mandarich instead of Troy Ackman. I'd still root for the Pack to win that game and I don't think whether you pick 2d or 4th is that big a deal. (barry Sanders was the 4th pick that year). Particularly this organization. Not guffawing about any aspect of the 2015 season though.

    I don't think guffaw means what I thought it did.

    Reds lose. Second picked locked up. Root for Phils to sweep a doubleheader tomorrow. Good night.

    I don't know if he is getting dinged a lot for Coors or what. I agree to my naked eye his wRC+ doesn't make sense...but I trust it. Heck Francisco Cerevilli (who is having a great year) is a couple points higher than Nolan in wRC+.
