Can I puff my chest at the Astros having a gold glove winning pitcher?

Would you have Travis Wood your #1 over Arrieta? laugh.gif

I think that's from when Starlin was hurt and finished the year on the DL.

Starlin is the SS, Baez is the 2B as of right now. They are not planning on moving Starlin anywhere, unless Maddon has other ideas.

What a ******* joke Adrian Gonzalez getting the Silver Slugger over Anthony Rizzo. mean.gif

Gonzo had more RBI, and doubles and that's about it. Oh, 9 more Total Bases. eyes.gif

Rizzo had a better Avg, more homers, better OBP, better SLG, better OPS, better OPS+, fewer DP's, more walks, more steals, more runs, a higher WAR, and did so in 45 less plate appearances. indifferent.gif

It says last verified November, 6th, which is why I was curious. Couldn't tell if that was the Cubs tipping which middle infielder they were leaning towards trading this offseason.

Lobaton is a solid backup, but Conger is a better player in my opinion.

Heyward just needs to hit next year. Braves Offseason moves please get rid of BJ Upton package him with Justin Upton i don't even care. Sign/Trade for Starting Pitchers. Keep Gattis
"J-Hey Kid" is not a better defensive player than Juan Lagares. I'm sorry, man.

First of all, these awards don't really matter much, since most are popularity contest.

They are so close in every category, except RBI's. If you are going to cite the "45 less plate appearances, you should also cite that Rizzo gets to play in Wrigley and doesn't play in the NL West (Majority Pitcher friendly ballparks).

RBI's are still sexy to the old school crowd, laugh.gif

Again, doesn't matter.

The $200 million payroll gave people false expectations, laugh.gif

It's a slow build, but glad there is some home grown talent in the pipeline, just like in 2002-2005 when Russel Martin, Matt Kemp, Chad Billingsley, Jonathan Broxton, James Loney, etc. were all in the system and eventually became somewhat productive major leaguers.

Glad management made the moves to produce an instant playoff contenders, to appease the fan base, while the real build of the frachise happens behind the scenes. If we would've won last year, or even this year, it would've been an accident.

Your feeling is HanRam will be easy or difficult to replace?

Easier than people believe. He is still an offensive force when healthy, however, his unwillingness to embrace another position outside of SS will not only hamper him in negotiations but will also cause a major headache for his next team. Hanley wears his emotions on his sleeve, when he's unhappy, everyone knows it. It's going to be tough for his new team to move him to SS.

The team that gets Hanley is going to hand him the SS job. Don't see the Dodgers resigning him for that reason. Would love for him to stay.

@ChampCruThik you're only 26? Just reading your posts I'd swear you're in your 30s.

Champ's one year older than me but probably 10 years older from a partying and yambs standpoint pimp.gif

I sometimes wonder about how old everyone is laugh.gif

Anyone else see the MLB Japan All Star series roster? Pretty disappointing squad. Pujols, Harper, and Adam Jones all dropped out at the last second.

I started lurking Niketalk when I was a 15 yr old Sophomore. Now I'm 25 and been out of college for 3 years frown.gif

When I found out JPZ was 13 it blew my mind.

When the hell are the MVP's announced?

I'll take that as a compliment. I've been told I'm mature for my age, did a lot of growing up the past few years. From 18 to about 23 couldn't be further opposite.

You older or younger?

I try to tell myself the damage I've done to my body (liver in particular) was worth the memories and experiences with different women. I'm sure you'll have your pinnacle moments in both regards.
