@LiterallyPFP @Purple Drank Regardless, after spending way too much time looking at Nicasio's numbers, I'd rather have him in the BP than several other guys

@LiterallyPFP @Purple Drank yeah, but we can still cut him if a better opportunity comes along.

As opposed to Ryan Jackson?


If they find somebody better, they can just cut his ass.

@LiterallyPFP @Purple Drank so then why the criticism for Nicasio? If his K Rate is better than League's but he still generates ground balls?

@LiterallyPFP @Purple Drank People were on twitter all fucking year arguing that League should be the 8th inning guy because he's not Brian Wilson.


I mean, look at his ERA! What a great ERA!!!

@LiterallyPFP @Purple Drank IMO, if you can't fucking miss bats, then you shouldn't be a relief pitcher. period.

@LiterallyPFP @Purple Drank he's a replacement level relief pitcher making $7+ million per year. We, as fans, have every right to criticize his performance.


also, no. everybody on twitter is arguing about how great League was because his ERA was fantastic. fuck that. League--with positive regression--barely was replacement level.

@LiterallyPFP @Purple Drank even with his starting pitcher peripherals, his numbers are better than League's. He generates groundballs. He still strikes more batters out.


It's almost--almost--as if you defend League b/c Ned acquired him.

@LiterallyPFP @Purple Drank it's just odd how you talk about how Brandon League is a "useful" piece in the BP despite his awful salary, yet when acquiring Nicasio for nothing comes up, you have to critique it all the goddamn time.

@LiterallyPFP @Purple Drank you mention that brandon league is useful all the fucking time on this site. literally everytime when I mention how fucking terrible the bullpen was last year, you defend brandon league

@juanhenry yeah, and it goes the same for hitters. it is another flaw of WAR and projections and stuff.

@LiterallyPFP we're just pointing out where we think you are being a hypocrite.


because literally nobody thinks much of this Nicasio acquisition, yet you decide to play debbie downer while arguing that Brandon League is 'useful' at every time his name is mentioned.

@LiterallyPFP @Purple Drank you are right. I hold Juan Nicasio in the same high esteem as Manny. That is why I asked if he's guaranteed to be on the roster all year.

@LiterallyPFP LOL. you've repeatedly defended Brandon League to the death, and you've tried to counter any sort of defense of acquiring Juan Nicasio.

@LiterallyPFP oh, please provide the quote where I say "Juan Nicasio is going to be amazing"

@LiterallyPFP @Purple Drank @DBrim as has been pointed out at least 8 times in the last 5 minutes, please stop combining Nicasio's starting stats with his relief stats.

i wonder if this means Nicasio is guaranteed to stay on the roster all year like last year's low-risk bullpen guys were.

@worddot well, let's see.


we gave up not that much for a bullpen arm that would have had the 2nd highest WAR in the bullpen.


yeah, I like that.
