It's pretty crazy how far he's dropped off though. Just a few years ago he was probably the best all around player in the league and talking 50-50 club.
Now we cant even trade him for decent prospects.
Unfortunately this is still a Laker town. If this happened with them there'd be riots outside Staples.
I guess DirecTV doesnt think it's worth the money with the ratings the games get. TWC need to face reality that this is a distant 3rd most popular sport in the US. Fans shouldnt suffer because they vastly overpaid for a TV deal.
20-27 hrs a year. think of him like trumbo but with better patience at the plate
give him more time.
still early in the season. dudes an A-gonz vs d-backs series away from bumping that avg up.
way more concerned with the k -rate though. he's still manning the outfield pretty good ( that running catch towards RF). he's got 2 stolen bases, and thats a real good sign. while im not sure if he'll get to 40, stealing at least 20-25 would be great. Donny said from the get, that they'd ease him in but once he gets a bit more consistent and maintains the health he'll be in there everyday.
He's looked rode hard and put up wet for sure. I'm worried about the bullpen more than anything right now.
dude is an avg outfielder with big pop. mark trumbo was a converted 1st basement so SVS is already better than him defensively. a player of their skillset, its not hard to hit at least 25 HR's...think Mike Morse, corey hart, carlos quentin.
20-25 HRs and a 250 avg...a lot of teams will take that, especially on a team friendly deal. Recently heard on a podcast that guy like SVS would def be starting on teams like Houston, NY mets, florida marlins
morse is 32, and had a breakthrough career 2-3 years ago with the Nats. svs is 28, same could happen to him. he has a career avg of 295 in the minors which could translate to an ok avg in the majors. over his career he's had 11 HR's with 200 plate appearances in the majors. with consistent playing time he could hit at least 20.
agree to disagree though
catch me the Chavez Ravine tonight, pavilion sec 307
on point with the playing time here in LA. what i meant is he could put numbers if he did get the playing time on a different team. not as much as a roster like this considering the talent in front of him. he wont put up all star #'s but given playing time, i think he'd produce
