Minor 80-grade skill: Matt Kemp's ability to look absolutely terrified when a sharp liner is headed his way.

Would a guy with 20 years of averaging 3 WAR, let's say he never breaks 5, get in the HOF? A guy needs the peak right?

Peak is important

I go through phases

One of those things where I always get overwhelmed by how much of it's out there that it's hard for me to branch out so I stick to my guys
mostly fusion stuff. Hancock and Sun Ra are the go-tos

AJ Burnett used to have an 80 grade "Pie to the face after a walk-off" back in his yankee days

is "getting HBP" too major to be a minor skill? Rizzo, Carlos Quentin, Starling Marte

Yeah, I think the thing that makes a true minor skill a minor skill is when it can't be isolated/quantified, i.e. the tag, swim-move slides, Rizzo climbing on tarps, even base-rounding to an extent
very easy to suss out the value that those guys create with their HBPs

alrighty, I gotta bounce guys
this was my favorite chat ever, so thanks for hanging out
same time same place next week
