He is weird. He looks great on some takes, then swings are absolute garbage.

It makes sense to have SVS in his role as lefty masher.

I think the thought on Ethier at first is that he is left-handed, which gives him an advantage at first

I'm still not convinced on Abreu. Needs to walk more and play better defense

Oh wait - JP Howell in a high leverage situation?  How dare you use your second best RP like that!

Its kind of sad that Beckett is hurt so badly.  He really seemed to be recapturing his form.

I wonder if all the idiot, race baiting reporters ever consider the fact that Vin thinks Puig is the most awesome thing ever?  They should.

Vin is clearly the biggest Puig fan on earth.  He absolutely loves him.

@Pie Fucker @I Digesti @TellMyWifeISaidHello @Dodger in Florida 

1) Martin didn't play a full year in his final year, and was injured.  Year before was a down year.

2) I'd imagine the bad blood was due to McCourt being cheap.  That said, Mattingly didn't help by sucking off Barajas, who sucked.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Pie Fucker @I Digesti @Dodger in Florida I think most projections see Martin getting 3/40 or so.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Pie Fucker @I Digesti @Dodger in Florida You are incorrect.  He was a 3.7 win catcher 2 years ago, and a 2.2 win catcher last year.  Has never even been a 1 win catcher the other years.

@Pie Fucker @I Digesti @TellMyWifeISaidHello @Dodger in Florida I think its rather clear that A.J. is playing at less than 100%.  He has always relied on his lower half, even in hitting.  He's a weight shift, as opposed to a kick guy and it seems that he can't really get much on his swings.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Pie Fucker @I Digesti @Dodger in Florida Martin had ONE injury, which healed perfectly.


On the Yankees, he was the victim of exceptionally bad luck with BABIP, and was still good.  Also put up the best ISO numbers of his career, despite being a RHB.

@Pie Fucker @I Digesti @TellMyWifeISaidHello @Dodger in Florida To A.J.'s credit, he's actually kept his OBP shockingly high relative to his AVG. 


That said, I think its best for the team and best for his career for A.J. to split time.  The leg injuries don't seem to be going away.

@Pie Fucker @TellMyWifeISaidHello @I Digesti @Dodger in Florida Careful.  Mike might get mad at you.


Anyway, I like A.J., but he really profiles more as a high end backup than a workhorse starter.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @I Digesti @ tomato @Barney (Not Darwin) Martin has been more than a 2 win player in every full, healthy season except 1.  And that doesn't include framing, which he is among the best at baseball at.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Pie Fucker @Dodger in Florida Actually, he's not a good defender.  His arm is solid, though he catches a staff that holds runners very well.  His blocking and framing suck.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @ tomato @Barney (Not Darwin) The French Guy.  Would be so happy with Martin as the primary and A.J. as Clayton's personal catcher and the spot guy.
