Makes me sad. I really like Didi, as a player and even more as a person.


But he'll be 30 in February. The Yanks got what was probably his peak, ages 25-29. He still doesn't command the K zone. When he loses some bat speed, he'll be a bench player. When he loses some more, his career will likely be over.




Well said, but it's a tough call. The Yankees could really use his lefty bat in their righty dominated line up. I hope that they re-sign him. He seems like a nice guy and a good team player too.

Bomber, think about why that is.  They are being told what to do and have to read cheat sheets to know where to stand. C'mon man, you know better than that. Do something voer and over again and you get better at it. Sit in your house on the computer and watch what to do, well, good to get an idea but you have to do it, not learn it or read about it, or play it on a computer and think, Oh, yeah, I can do that! When you try, you find it not so easy. Just saying paractice and doing makes perfect. Thinking for yourself gives you instincts during an actual game.

you miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

I'm not trying to be a wise guy,  but I have no idea what your response means. Are you saying something about analytics being bad for the game? I'm lost.

Most teams just offer the offer to players that are most likely leaving so they can get a compensatory pick. Hopefully they can work out a nice 3 or 4 year deal. Sometimes the players clubhouse value is just as important as what he does on the field.

I meant that players are getting used to being told what to do, instead of learning how to do it by playing more and reading about stats less. I know you, and I know your not trying to be a wise guy. No problem.


I don't like the launch angle stats, it makes hitters try and do justthat instead of putting the bat on the ball and staying in the middle of the field when they are slumping. I don't like Velo stats it makes pitchers want to throw harder than they should be. I don't like strike outs. I don't like jumbled lineups every day it makes hitters in consistant.


All those bad traits these kids are picking up are due to analytics right? Some analytic information is very helpful and really good and very helpful and some like what I mentioned just aren't. Everyone is not a home run hitter but they all try to be now, that's where the big bucks are. BTW, don't forget, chicks dig the long ball.lol...

 Ok, Now I understand. I am definitely not a fan of all these analytics, as you can tell from many of my responses. I understand that there's a place for them, and that they can help coaches make decisions. But I think the game has become way too analytic driven.

That's why I said I know you and I get where your at. I think and feel the same way as you with this analytic business. Its a good tool, not a bible! It's a guide and information how to be more successful in certain situations. It is not a baseball rule or a law!

Yankees are too right handed for the Stadium. Re-sign Didi.

There's been talk about Lindor (not sure if that's the way you spell his name) but he's a switch hitter, but I think that's more rumor than a thing ?? But Didi being a left handed hitter will be the reason they might bring him back ?? It takes two to dance, I just hope Ca$hman and Didi can find a song they like, and they don't get into an argument on who leads ??
