It’s a bum eat bum world out there. You either slay bums or be a bum


or eat bums, apparently.

I’d like to see more Lamb perhaps at DH vs RHP and give some time off to Yermin who seems to need it.


I guess things are going well when we can argue who the 3rd string CF’er should be…

but in my opinion it’s Hamilton and it’s not close. He’s a better fielder than Garcia. Hamilton has been a crap hitter, but he’s been brighter shade than Garcia. Garcia’s ISO is a ridiculous .057 all while Hamilton’s BABIP is the lowest of his career.

And Hamilton is a slightly better baserunner. Weird stat: Hamilton hasn’t grounded into a DP since 2019. And only 2 since 2018. Leury Garcia has grounded into 5 DPs this season… that only trails Yaz & Abreu. Yuck.

From Jim’s post about Hamilton over the weekend:

Since the start of the 2019 season:
García: .672 OPS
Hamilton: .554 OPS

García is a better hitter than Hamilton. You can argue for Hamilton for other reasons but arguing based on hitting is a tough sell.
