It really isn't. You came to this opinion because Bichette hit two HRs today. For most of the season, Bo has been hitting opposite field grounders. It'd take you approximately one week to declare that the hitting coach had ruined him.
**** your asterisk.

Tbh I'd take Bichette over Vladdy right now. I truly believe he will end up being the better player when its all said and done. Better hitter and better defensively.

But Schads point, which was spot on, was that the exact same thing that you posted about Bichette was posted about Vlalddy, whom you are now calling for a demotion to AAA. You're like an unemployed Dr; no patience. (Yes, it works better verbally than written due to different spelling, but it's still childishly funny).


What exact same thing did I post about Bichette was posted about Vladdy. One was for a demotion the other was for a promotion. I don't understand the irony in all of this and your arguments. I also dont appreciate the unemployed Dr. comment. I guess its your style to come in here and post comments like this on this forum. Pretty classy of you gundysmullet.

That being impatient in wanting young players promoted feeds directly into being impatient if they don't immediately succeed. Baseball careers do not happen in a weekend.

Blue Jays re-sign Randal Grichukkk to 5-year, $52 million contract.

You are wrong Scad and I dont appreciate you putting words into my mouth. I didn't come to this opinion based on the 2HRs he hit today. Bichette has been hitting well all season long. The stats don't lie. Just have a look. Also why dont you take a chill pill while you're at it and relax. Because someone doest agree with you, you dont have to get all bitchy and defensive about it Mr. know it all.

I was startled. I remember most reaction around here was kind of blasé.

We are building for success/competiveness in 2021/2022. These things take time. If we're a bottom 10 team in 2022, I'll +1 you.

Heh, there is nothing remotely defensive about what I said. Bo was hitting .305/.364/.486 prior to today...good, certainly, but hardly spectacular, and boosted by a batting average on balls in play that is unsustainable even with his line drive rate. He has been hitting the ball on the ground at an incredibly high rate, and both ZIPS and Steamer project him to be a below-average hitter this year. All things that I would expect him to figure out, but no, he is very unlikely to be a day-one offensive star, nor does he project as the sort of dominant offensive player Vlad is expected to be.

Known as a late starter but it's late now. Didn't like that last at bat.

We have the worst gm in baseball. Double A might win exec of the year at this point.

AA winning the award would be pretty funny. He has done a good job, mostly because he has resisted the temptation to **** with the team built by his predecessor. 10 of the 11 players with more than 100 PAs pre-date Anthopolous, as do most of their pitchers (AA is responsible for Keuchel, who has been quite hittable; Gausman, whose ERA is over 6 (though that involves some bad luck), plus a couple relievers.

The Braves have been good for 21.7 fWAR on the year. Players acquired for quintuple AAAAA have produced around 3-3.5 fWAR of that (depending on how kind you want to be with the usual replacement-level fill-ins).
**** your asterisk.

Ha, they won't and aren't now even. I am happy to not waste my time on this car crash of a team. Haven't watched one game all season and quite pleased with my boycott of this tire fire of a front office.

And thusly the wheat shall be winnowed from the chaff, and lo, new fans shall replace the old, and we shall then present ourselves blameless; as if purified by fire.
