    How are September and June contiguous?

    Lemme rephrase it then, from 2018 to today, Gary has a 38 game stretch of hitting .264 with a .979 OPS. Outstanding.

    The only problem is that stretch is only from Mar 18th to May 31st of 2019. Outside of that hot block, it's been 132 games of sub .700 OPS.

    If that doesn't interest or concern you, then fine we have nothing to discuss.

    Not true. Sanchez hit very well for most of June. As I look at it, his slump began on June 24 and has persisted only through his last 24 games. He hit very well for his first 57 games this year.

    Gary got two hits last evening. He needs to consistently churn out multiple hits games to elevate his BA and that should be his primary mission.

    Definitely had better ABs yesterday. As did Judge. But it is Baltimore.

    Gary boomed a 3-run HR this afternoon. That's 5 RBI in two games.

    Gary subsequently walked and produced another hit. 2-2 so far, bottom of the 6th.

    He doesnít need to go on a binge to raise his season batting average. He just needs to start getting on base at a better pace starting now.

    Haha yeah. As others have said, might just have to accept that he's an insanely streaky hitter.

    He plays a position that is very hard on the body, and he appears to hit worse when injured. There are not many catchers who hit consistently well.

    Good idea to rest him plenty the rest of the way, Romine is playing well enough that it should be easy especially in September with Higgy also up making DH days easier to manage with risk of losing the DH. Need to keep or get him in a rhythm with key starters but otherwise lots of rest for him from here on out.

    Soooo it looks that he shouldnt be traded for a bag of balls after all....

    Maybe he needs a hustle chit so he doesn't tweak his groin on the basepaths again.

    Re: 2019 Gary Sanchez performance thread

    The weird thing about Sanchez is that all his peripherals are almost idential to 2016 and 2017, yet his BABIP this year and last have nosedived. BABIP/LD%/GB%/FB% by year:

    2016: .317/16.4/49.3/34.2
    2017: .304/21.1/42.3/36.6
    2018: .197/14.3/42.9/42.9
    2019: .246/22.3/31.8/45.9

    He's hitting the ball has hard as ever but one major difference is that this year he's hit much less grounders. I believe grounders have a higher BABIP than fly balls so if he would hit the ball on the ground more, along with the same line drive rate, his luck should increase.

    Per 100 at bats, he’s hitting about six more infield fly balls than he did in 2016 and 2017. Those are basically automatic outlets. That doesn’t fully explain the difference in production, but I think it’s a significant part of the picture.

    Yes thanks for that. Definitely a factor.

    His BABIP is lower relative to '16/'17 because of the shift. Also, HRs don't get counted in BABIP. He found success earlier this year because he hit fewer groundballs. It's pretty clear that the last thing a slow running catcher should do is hit more of them.

    To add: "luck" doesn't increase or decrease. When analytics people talk about "luck", it's just a word used to stand in for variation for which we have no current explanation. There is no actual such thing as luck.

    Re: 2019 Gary Sanchez performance thread

    Most encouraging thing I saw yesterday was Gary taking those pitches on the outer third to center field. He was patient in all 4 AB's too. Seemed to be a very conscious game plan. I hope that's the Gary we get through the west coast trip.
    Supports: smart spending, roster flexibility and depth. Does not support: reckless spending and extreme prospect hugging.

    Thatís probably the first time Gary Sanchez has ever been described as "fastest position player."

    Kind of disgusted at this hackjob of an article. Posting here:

    Sanchez plays his position as if under a spell, a fog that fills him with indifference. He runs the bases — when he’s in the mood — as if he’s lost beyond anything more challenging or thought-worthy than a home run trot.

    This kind of armchair-psychologist "mind-reading" editorializing wouldnt be tolerated very well on this forum, but this clown Phil Mushnick can have his own column in which to do it
