Looking at Straw's stat line, is he batting about .034 since getting into it with Yankee fans? Because at that time, I thought he was mid-high .200s and now he's around .190.

No clue. But he started the season hot. Was still hitting like .270 almost a month in. He has been horrendous since then.

Reyes has been good since his return, too!

I remember Ironman92 being all up about us getting Reyes in that Bauer trade. 

I wonder what is going on with Puig these days.

I would’ve guessed a great DH for many years.


Puig has a really good arm but on another continent last I heard

Without the juice in the ball MLB teams might move away from these All or Nothing “hitters”

Well, Oscar cleared waivers and is back in CBus just waiting for the next call up.

He’s 27….gotta still have hope if you are him of hitting his prime. Maybe his next chance he gets going a bit and catches on ok with another team….maybe bounces around 4-5 more years. Be a lot of cash he will need down the road.

As a Pirates fan, I totally expect him to end up in our organization at some point, as we're the kings of picking up well-regarded prospects who failed in their initial go of it in the hopes that a change of scenery will do the job. Current success rate: 4.51%, but that doesn't stop 'em from trying!

I wouldn’t worry. He was never highly regarded. Came up in a loaded roster and saw nothing but fastballs as a rookie. You could tell then he was not good —  but had enough clutch hits to get an insanely long leash once the tear down happened and pitchers could actually attack him.
