What Manny has over Hardy in terms of speed and arm strength he gives back in flashiness and being cute.

I don't think that Manny is better than Hardy right now.  I do think Manny is very good over there and will be somebody's SS in 2019 if not sooner.  He's absolutely capable of being a fulltime SS and one of the better defensive ones around, IMO.

Rehabbing tonight in Bowie!

 

Hopefully he only needs 3-4 games and is back sometime this weekend.  Seems fairly likely that he'll be back before Manny has to go on his suspension, which will be nice.  Would suck having Janish and Flaherty playing together on the left side.

He wasn't running well yesterday. That's for sure.

Homers in 2 of the last 3 games, OPS climbs up over .700.

 

Current 9 game hitting streak, which also includes 4 doubles.

As shocking a stat as anything on the team IMO.

Now, I think it helps that he missed a lot of time but still, that's a very surprising number.

Not that surprising at all. Could see in ST he was back to driving the baseball.

Agree with BN...no surprise imo.

Do agree (and have made same point) that Rob did...the time on DL a bit of blessing. He is fresh.

Hardy has had a sub 700 OPS in 3 of the last 4 years, including a sub 600 last year.

He's getting older and has had injury issues the last few years and those injury issues have been relatively major.

So yea, I think it's pretty surprising no matter how he looked 5 months ago. It's still a grind of the season that will wear a guy down, especially an aging MIer coming off back and shoulder issues.

I do feel he isn't close to where he was with the time off though. I said in the offseason that Buck had to rest him
a lot more for us to get the most out of him.

Now, the injury made him rest him and that was likely a blessing in disguise but I'm still shocked at the level of production we have seen from him.

He had a torn labrum last year.  He was clearly limited physically.  He was no longer physically impaired when ST arrived.

He's a .722 OPS guy for his career....   him being at .671 in '12, .739 in '13, .681 in '14, or .743 here in '16 is all in the range I would expect.

 

The only outlier was last year.

 

Do expect the OPS to come down a bit though.

Right. Last year was the outlier and its clear the injury had sapped him. .740 might be a bit surprising. In particular, the batting avg. Always expected a resurgence back to around the .700 OPS level. Never thought he was washed up.

Sure, the injuries last year were a big issue. Of course, this is another aspect of things being surprising..the fact that these injury issues haven't cropped up this year. Usually, that isn't the case for middle IFers at his age.

What he has done in his career matters little at this stage in his career. He used to be one of the best offensive SS in baseball. The fact you can say that about JJ 6+ years ago means little to a player of his age.

And you just said, you would expect him to be in that range is true...sure, something in the 650-700 range wouldn't have been surprising.

The fact that he is knocking on the door of 750 is surprising IMO.

A torn labrum isn't normal wear and tear of age.

Well yes and no. The labrum can fray and weaken over time, which makes is more likely to tear...especially with his throwing motion of being so over the top.
