    Yea, I am not an expert on Alonso, but it looks like the Reds traded him at his peak value.
    Career OPS at home 759
    Career OPS away 752

    Most of his career has been in SD, and he actually hits better at home, so it's hard to blame Petco.

    I know he said he redid his swing because of Petco, but a 1b that only OPSes 760 or so is not incredibly valuable. Maybe in time, he'll improve, but I'm glad we didn't move Votto to LF to make a spot for him
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Stubbs has come crashing back to earth as expected. He's 0-for-3 so far today and is now batting .248 on the season. His OPS is .660 (below his career OPS of .696).

    Honestly, after telling all my Indians fans friends how awful he was, it would have made me look bad if he went out and had a good year. Course, the chance of Stubbs having a "good year" are miniscule, IMO. Nothing has changed with him. I watch Tribe games occasionally. Terrible approach at the plate. Rarely walks. Strikes out a ton. Not much power. Sound familiar?

    We need Stubbs to continue his career trajectory to balance out the HOF career Mariekson Julius Gregorius is on pace to have.

    I'm just going to cherry pick some Chris Dickerson stats and mention he's 2-3 with his 2nd and 3rd home runs.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    Good to know. I was wondering if he was still in the organization or not.

    Always wished the Reds had given him more of a shot.

    I don't think the Reds handled Dickerson bad at all, he simply couldn't stay healthy and on the field. My only regret is that the Reds didn't sign him over the last year or so when he was bouncing around various AAA teams because he would be a nice piece to have around, recent hot streak or not.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I just think Didi could be the type of person that really gained confidence by being coveted in a high profile trade. That's my explanation.

    Gaining confidence might help a bit, especially short term, but in the end his talent level will make or brake him.

    Re: Tracking - Alonso, Grandal, Volquez, Boxberger, Sappelt, Wood, Torreyes

    Here's a question for those familiar with Gregorius: what is behind his power surge so far this year? His BABIP is higher than you'd expect, but it's not outrageous. It's the ISO that's currently higher than Joey Votto's that's a mystery to me. I always thought of Gregorius as a light hitting SS. Am I missing something, or is this nothing more than a hot streak in a small sample size?
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
