take your L and walk it off.
I think its actually funny that you are using career statistics for trying to **** on Detfink's statement when you literally typed on this board the other day that Hicks is a 380 OBP, 850 OPS and 20 SB kind of player. Meanwhile in your world for knowing EXACTLY who a player is going to be let me clue you in on something.
Aaron Hicks career at bats: 1,540
Career Batting Average and On Base Percentage:
.231 BA/ .316 OBP
And I get it, you want to use Hicks 300 AB's last year as some sort of absolute, unequivocal concrete data that speaks to you thinking he is the player you claim he is. But there is an extremely high chance that you are dead wrong. That Hicks is nothing more than a 348 OBP, 244 BA, 780 OPS type of player. The best part is I really don't like Austin AT ALL. I just don't know why the concept of him potentially hitting 270, even when he said he wouldn't bet on that in Vegas would seem to irritate you that much.
Ahhh yes. My favorite thing to do. Find old posts of people berating me, yet being unequivocally incorrect.
Hicks is 45th in the entire MLB for pitchers and hitters combined in WAR.
Hicks is top 30 in OPS in the entire MLB.
Hicks is 25th in SLG.
Hicks is an elite glove with ++ speed.
Tyler Austin is still a career .228 hitter in MLB level in 268 AB's and currently in AAA.
Didn't know Hicks was up that high in those stats. Interesting.
Also Tyler Austin sucks haha. At least he threw down against the Red Sox in that mini brawl.
