Polanco will likely never be a "smart" baserunner but he does have a ton of BR value in getting the extra base.

I don't mind the aggression there. He's pretty quick, Grichuk was really deep, and he had to make an excellent throw to just barely get him out

Believe me, as someone who watches every pirates game, that was one of the best slsides of polancos career. It's a miracle he doesn't get hurt every time

Do you like the parks with random ball generators in the OF (weird angles/materials that can cause goofy caroms)?

I love them.

Who do you think has a better career, Grichuk or Piscotty? And how long can Grichuk hang in at CF?
august fagerstrom
3:29
Grichuk's injury history scares me
Like his talent more but Piscotty seems safer
Incredulous Doubter

Final Boss is such an awesome nick name.
The Dude of NY

Why is the Final Boss pitching in the 7th inning? That seems more like a midgame boss.
