is there statistical evidence of guys outplaying their norms in contract years? Or do we just remember those that did, and not make note of those that didn't

August: love that first name! Dan Z. said yesterday he doubts that the O's will pony up the 300+ million necessary to keep Machado in town. Do you agree with that opinion? THX.

I do

How good is Jake Lamb? Could you see .280/.360/.450 with plus defense at the hot corner? He looks fantastic so far this season

I'm a Lamb fan. Reportedly re-tooled his swing in the offseason. I'm buying
Carlos Gomez

I'm always panicking. What's unique about me in April that it is legitimately worth panicking about?
august fagerstrom
1:07
Literally almost everything. I might write about this soon. Worst exit velo in the majors, 0 walks, tons of strikeouts, getting nothing in the air
You couldn't look more broken

Don't think you've fully recovered from last year's injuries

How do you view Pat Corbin's future? #3 starter material?
august fagerstrom
1:08
Could be a No. 2
Already probably is a No. 2
1:09
Depending on your definition of "No. 2" and "No. 3"

There are only two players left in the league who have made contact on every pitch they swung at in the zone. Can you guess those two players?
august fagerstrom
1:09
man I was just looking at this the other day. Pretty sure one is Jean Segura
1:10
Martin Prado
?
gotta look it up now
Brett Gardner!
wonder what happens first, one of those guys swings through a pitch in the zone, or Kevin Pillar takes a walk
oh. looks like Kevin Pillar has already taken a walk
1:11
That was an easy question. Replace Pillar with Andrelton Simmons, then
Rick

Castellanos sss improvements skill based or just better luck. Do you think he will be solid 3B long-term?
august fagerstrom
1:11
Not buying it

Why isn't Carson doing NERD scores this year? Has his ascension to the French aristocracy made him too good for menial labor?
august fagerstrom

They'll be back soon
