NoGainDayne : 9/16/2020 9:35 pm : link
his strikeout karate enthusiasm. He really gets that chop going to ring people up.

Higgy, to me, has to play more over Sanchez right now.

Also I just noticed that they really overlooked in the MVP Voit conversation what the WAR actually was, he's 21 in the AL in WAR right now. I'm just not sure that is high enough for the MVP as much as I am a huge fan of his.

Really shows how flawed WAR can be. Some of the names above him is absolutely joke.
Well, Higgy has always had good power  
Greg from LI : 9/16/2020 9:45 pm : link
Never been good at getting the bat on the ball at this level, but he can give it a ride when he does.
Not to mention  
terz22 : 9/16/2020 9:47 pm : link
the Angels have 4 players in the top 20 in WAR and still are 9 games under .500. How the fuck does that work?
Man, I bitched about somebody(Higgy)

What do you think a guy like Kiermaier is worth then? He gets like a 2-3 dwar. And Hit a Tina sub 100 OPS+... I think Hicks is worth a lot more.
And Greg what do you make of Sanchez?

He's struggling mightily. Are you still staying the course on him?

I mean....I'm not giving up on him entirely, but we're nearly done with the season. If he doesn't start hitting in the next ten days, I think you have to give Higashioka first crack at the playoffs.
Was that Mike Piazza  
Carson53 : 9/17/2020 10:36 am : link
or somebody they call Higgy. Who would have thunk it.
They are bashing at the moment, keep the train rolling.
Cole looks like he is back on the beam!
A sweep would be nice, they have to go to Buffalo next week for four games.
A little cushion would be nice at this time.

will start El Gary when the playoffs start, you can book it.
Good Lord, they still use him as a DH at times.

He will not get better on the bench. Of course they are playing him now. Just looking for something to jump start him. I thought he was a bit better last night, going to right. Seemed to recognize pitches a little better....or maybe it was wishful thinking on my part.

If he doesn’t pick it up offensively, I don’t think they start him game 1 with Cole on the mound.

No way they risk Cole being less comfortable on the bump unless there’s a significant chance of it paying off with a solid offensive game from Gary.

That’s if everyone else is healthy. Judge in RF, Frazier in LF and Stanton at DH leaves no room for Gary if he’s not catching.

I know he won't be a DH when people are healthy,
that's not what I was talking about....Based on his performance, no way he should have been a DH this season.
It's just as I have said previously, they have coddled this guy for far too long now.

I got what you were saying and I was just trying to clarify my post disagreeing with you saying they won’t sit Gary.

In my initial reply I was saying why they would sit him as a catcher with Cole on the mound and realized I forgot to finish my point about how and why he’d also sit that game as DH.

Basically, regardless of how they’ve coddled him in the past, if he doesn’t come out of this offensive funk, he’s riding the pine in game 1 imo.

Agree Eman11. But they will continue to play him to try and get him out of his funk, up until the playoffs. Boone admitted that Higgy is catching Cole
No doubt Section  
Eman11 : 9/17/2020 2:56 pm : link
And I think they should try and get him out of his funk, unless it jeopardizes them getting in the playoffs but I think they’re in good shape there.

Gary hitting would be a huge boost to the club and no doubt the team and all of us would love to see it. Problem for me is I’m not seeing many positive signs he’ll get going, and I don’t think he will. Fingers crossed I’m 100% wrong on that.
