The A.J. Pollock Signing Made No Sense For The Dodgers

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   One of the most puzzling free agent acquisitions over the 2018-2019 off season took place on January 26th, 2019. That day, the Dodgers signed center fielder A.J. Pollock to a 3 year, $60 million deal with a player option for a 4th year. The deal was a bit questionable at the time, and more so now. The first thing that made the deal questionable is the amount of years/money dedicated to a player who has only played more than 140 games once in his career. That came back in 2015 when he played 157 games. In...

Cody Bellinger Is Becoming MLB's Second Best Player

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   No doubt, Mike Trout is the best player in the MLB. There’s no argument. He’s put up 7 straight season of MVP worthy numbers. Trout has been very comparable to Willie Mays from 1954 to 1960. Trout has the better OPS (by .001), and has a much higher OBP. While Mays still stole more bases, and hit more home runs, Trout has a higher WAR than Mays in the same time span (63.8 to 63.1). Most people will say that Mookie Betts is the 2nd best MLB player. He’s a 5 tool player with 2 MVP...

How A.J. Pollock Fit With The Dodgers

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Enrique Medina   Without any doubt, this past offseason, the biggest acquisition the Dodgers made came in ex-Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock. Pollock, now 31 years of age has spent the entirety of his 7 year big league career with Arizona. In Arizona, Pollock was one of the most productive outfielders in the game when healthy. Pollock’s breakout year came in 2015 when he hit 20 home runs with 76 RBI’s all with a .315 batting average. This same season Pollock stole 39 bases had a .367 OBP, .498 SLG, .865 OPS topped off with a 7.2 WAR. This...
