Bryan Reynolds Is The National League's Most Underrated Rookie

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   The Pirates had a pretty set outfield entering 2019. Starling Marte and Corey Dickerson manned centerfield and left field, and neither have had a large injury history in the past few seasons. Even with Gregory Polanco out, Melky Cabrera made a fine replacement until he would be ready. But an unforeseen injury that has costed Dickerson over an entire month to heal from, and a short, but 10 day IL trip for Starling Marte opened the doors for some unlikely heroes. The aforementioned Melky Cabrera has seen more playing time than what you probably predicted by...

2019 Comeback Player Of The Year Candidates

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   Comeback player of the year is one of my more favorite awards. Sometimes, it makes for a great comeback story, or makes a contract that looked sour in its first season look better. So with that being stated, I want to name what I think are the best comeback player of the year candidates for 2019. Carlos Santana: After the 2017 season, Carlos Santana left Cleveland and signed a long term deal with the Phillies. However, his time in Philly was not all that spectacular. He finished 2018 with a .229/.352/.414 line, 109 wRC+, 24 home...

By: Noah Wright   The #1 prospect is basically saying that you have the brightest future out of all MILB players. But #1 prospect doesn’t always translate to complete success.

Other times, the complete opposite.                                                                           ...

Adam Dunn; The Most Interesting Player In MLB History

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   Adam Dunn is one of the most interesting men to play in the MLB. He was the definition of the three true outcomes, was one of the most powerful players during his time, and also created some of the strangest statlines ever. This is the most interesting facts about the former big league slugger known as Adam Dunn. The Best Offense Is The Worst Defense: During 2009, Adam Dunn was one of the best batters in the MLB. He finished the season with a .267/.398/.529 batting line, crushed 38 home runs, and was 13th in wRC+...

Could This Be The Astros Year?

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   The Astros are off to a blazing start. They enter Friday with a 29-15 record. Now that’s pretty impressive, but their offense is absolutely amazing. Between Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman, Josh Reddick, Robinson Chirinos, Michael Brantley, and George Springer, the lowest OPS out of that bunch is Reddick at .832. Even then, he’s getting on base at a .388 clip, and providing his usual outstanding outfield defense (4 DRS, .8 UZR, .3 dWAR). When Jose Altuve comes back healthy, you could add another great bat to that line-up. The bullpen has also been stellar. Behind closer...
