Thread: Castro..

  1. #1

    Castro..

    Perhaps he's a bittttt better than people on this board have given him credit for...

    As I stated before the season began, he's still only 26 (just turned 27), some are late bloomers, always had the tools..

    Imagine how good he would be if he had any kind of plate discipline.

    The talent was always there. Some guys just take longer to figure it out. Hopefully this is him figuring it out. He's on pace to set a career high in walks. He might strikeout 100 times but that's standard now

    He's probably outperforming every MI out there. Haven't looked at Lindor's numbers.

    He is doing good. As was said though, not to be greedy, I wish he walked a little more.

    Yeah he's hitting like 380 right now so I could really care less how much he walks. He could've walked 0 times this year and he'd still be the most productive 2nd basemen in baseball. Is OBP and AVG are both about 40 points higher than any other player at the position

    Avg is 3 points lower than The highest OBP for second basemen

    This is true. Dude had three pretty good offensive years for the Cubs, so it shouldn't come as such a big surprise, even if he sucked balls more often than not as a Yankee.

    Still, because of his age, I always held out hope for him (I'm on record) and saw some talent that betrayed his stats, though I do understand some of the hate, and let's face it, some of it is downright entertaining (Clown).

    so far castro is having the better season and there isnt a debate. And isnt he playing shortstop? Nevermind he said Middle Infielder but my original statement stands

    Maybe you should read the statement again. Castro is having the better season. No one said he was a better player

    Yes. so fWAR trumps all. Let me know how many games Lindor won the indians with his glove this year

    if you look at batted ball, lindor has the better profile too. castro does have quite a lot of babip luck so far

    good hitters know how to hit tough pitches. So what if it is not hard hit. Stop looking for reasons why castro is not out performing Lindor, because he is. That might change. but Castro is batting almost 100 points higher than him with more RBIs and two less dimgers and a Higher OBP and OPS.

    what is your point with this projection. It has no relevance to who has been the better player this season

    it's basically a luck neutral metric of their batted balls so far.

    Okay you said expected so that sounded like something that was projecting end of season stats, I dont care about whos had better luck. I care about results. A line drive at a middle infielder is not better than a bloop hit. The results are what they are. Yeah, that may Indicate Lindor will end the season with better numbers, But thats not the case right now. Castro has been the best second basemen in baseball this season to this point.

    Re: Castro..

    it's basically saying that lindor's offense stats should be better than castro's if we assume equal luck. there is a bit of leeway with the spread of the batted balls relative to the defense, but it's not that huge.

    Shoulda woulda coulda. You do not win baseball games with that. It is what it is right now. On May 7th. Castro has better results. That may be different come september

    Re: Castro..

    i'm approaching the question as, given their performance so far, who is the better player.

    it's a bit different from 'who's had the best season so far.'

    I clarified that a half hour ago and you said lindor was having a better season because his fwar was .1 higher than Castros

    And the original question was talking about outperforming, which means who has the better statistics, not who the better player is. I mean it is obvious going back and reading that you said lindor was a better player, and I didnt dispute that, just said castro was having the better year, and you refuted that, which was quite absurd
