re: What has Ole Miss done Freeze is 18- 19 in the SEC. - JasonMason
What you fail to realize is that he inherited a team that was 0-8 in the SEC in 2011 and 0-14 in their last 14 SEC games before he got to Ole Miss. So the fact that he's 18-19 in the SEC is actually no small feat considering the West has been the best division in football probably as long as he has ...

re: Ken Griffey Jr. MLB the Show 17 - JasonMason
[quote]most boring my career out there now[/quote] I've always been a career mode guy in the show, but this year I got sucked into diamond dynasty. Conquest mode and the missions were the best thing to happen to this game for me. I've grinded so many hours and still not unlocked many of the legen...

re: Is Yadier Molina a HOF Catcher? - JasonMason
[quote]If a greater percentage of Molina's value comes from his defense than offense, relative to HOF catchers, then a more accurate statistical measure that increases that defensive component will increase his total statistical value more than the other Hall of Famers, thus narrowing the gap. This ...

[quote]I'm not going to put any stock into a stat that you yourself won't bother to vet. You can keep posting it all you like.[/quote] I haven't seen any other defensive stats posted. [quote]Catcher data looks at stolen bases allowed, caught stealing, errors, pickoffs, passed balls, and wild p...

re: Is Yadier Molina a HOF Catcher? - JasonMason
[quote] Matheny has a lot of gold gloves, too. His advanced stats don't appear to justify that reputation. I don't put a whole lot of stock in gold gloves. Others are free to put as much stock as they like in it.[/quote] Matheny doesn't have nearly as many as Molina or others at the top of their...

re: Is Yadier Molina a HOF Catcher? - JasonMason
[quote]That's ridiculous.[/quote] I've already posted this link, and admittedly I haven't done the research to see what all metrics it's aggregating but Charles Johnson isn't close. He also has half the gold gloves of molina in the same amount of time. [link=(http://www.baseball-reference.com/...

[quote]If Charles Johnson isn't a hall of famer, I think Yadi fails for the same reasons.[/quote] Charles Johnson is a good comp as a hitter, but as good as Charles Johnson was a defender, he's not on the same tier as Molina....

re: Is Yadier Molina a HOF Catcher? - JasonMason
[quote]It's a commendable effort, but you don't put guys in the HOF because he played a lot. His hitting is just too poor.[/quote] That wasn't really my point. I guess I didn't really relay it properly. My point was that he wouldn't be playing that many games and innings at the position as a leag...

re: Is Yadier Molina a HOF Catcher? - JasonMason
[quote]And the reason Posey plays so much first base is because his bat is actually worth keeping in the lineup when he isn't catching. Yadi is has been a replacement level hitter or worse for all but 3 seasons of his career.[/quote] The flip side to this is that they value his bat over his defen...

re: Is Yadier Molina a HOF Catcher? - JasonMason
[quote]Thats great but regardless of defensive skills, hitting is still and giant portion of a players value and Molina is not even league average for his career. [/quote] Not disagreeing that hitting plays a huge part. I'm just simply saying that he's probably top 5 defensively at catcher all t...

re: Is Yadier Molina a HOF Catcher? - JasonMason
I think Molina's argument is defensively he's one of the best catchers of all time. His offense isn't elite, but it's also above average. [quote]Joe Mauer Jorge Posada jason Kendall Russell Martin Brian McCann[/quote] None of these guys are close defensively to Molina. I'm not sure he'...

re: Is Yadier Molina a HOF Catcher? - JasonMason
[quote]Yadi Molina is 2 tiers below Buster Posey as a player.[/quote] Buster Posey has already played a full season's worth of games at 1B and not even close to the same defensive player at catcher by the metrics. So I'm not sure that's a completely fair comparison. I'm not sure the significan...

[quote]No you are still an idiot, Pujols was 19 when they made those PROJECTIONS and yes clearly he is better than hi projections and YES the scouts were off predicting what type of player a 19 YEAR OLD KID will become but when looking at at 29 YEAR OLD FULL GROWN MAN they have a pretty good idea of...

[quote]I mean there will be outliers in any statistical metric. [/quote] I agree with you. My point of posting that was just to show that scouts can be wrong. Some of the more irrational types are interpreting it that I'm comparing Tebow to Pujols. That's dumb. I haven't seen anyone say anything...
