Let me ask you, if I put the over/under at something like.... 30-doubles, 3-triples, 15-hrs, 90-runs, 80-rbi and 30-sb do you think Holliday would get that? Less? More? A lot more?

That's the deflated version (because Mack got mad at me last time I posted it at 720 ABs) of what Mateo and Frazier did last year.

I think if Holliday produced that and showed up as much in the Years highlight video as Frazier did last year, everyone would be over-the-moon declaring victory....but that's what the guys everyone thinks sucked produced.

I think a Mateo/Wong (just using Wong now, Maton, Urias, other) platoon would produce similar numbers in 2024 as Holliday would. Mateo and Wong are both GG caliber guys. Mateo adds a lot of running value.

I wouldn't expect much difference (Holliday vs Mateo/Wong) in the results in 2024. There's an outcome where Holliday outproduces 'other'....but there's also an outcome where 'other' outproduces Holliday. Both of those (for me) are more fringe outcomes. The one-sigma answer is not much difference, if any.

The expectations for Jackson Holliday long-term are much, much, much better. I would project him in the 2025 lineup like everyone else. I'm ok waiting, apparently no one else is. Time will tell.

Well if Mateo/Frazier got to those numbers with a combined .280 OBP and .650 OPS, I will be ecstatic to take the latter considering rate stats are much more important.

Mateo had a .607 OPS last year, Wong .519. I’m not so sure there “wouldn’t be much difference”.

He conceded defeat in a 2 letter post. The perfect statement if you ask me.

I don’t have the history with Dude that you do but I’m guessing that wasn’t a concession. LOL

It’s never too late to sign Jonathan Schoop.

I am curious what you think I conceded. 

 

Mack stated an opinion and said he didn't want to talk about it anymore.
