I'm laughing at using OBP rather than OPS when the latter literally has OBP built into it. ...

[quote]would you rather have a top 15 percentile defensive player in the league with a .403 OBP or a bottom 5 percentile defensive player with a .384 OBP. [/quote] :lol: at using OBP. But to entertain your point, there's a 19 point gap between the two in OBP. There's a 121 point gap in OPS. What'...

[quote]Sure, but it's just another point to bring up how Seager hasn't had a poor season at the plate.[/quote] It'd be tough to find anyone who thinks Seager has had a poor season at the plate. Not hitting as well as Zimmerman has to this point doesn't mean Seager has had a poor season. [quote...

re: Almost Mid-Season MLB Awards - BenDover
[quote]fwiw xwOBA suggests that Zimmerman has been playing over his head a little bit at the plate, he has a xwOBA of 405 and an actual wOBA of over 420, and Seager has been underperforming, a xwOBA of 410 and an actual wOBA of under 390[/quote] Not sure the relevance of posting a stat would "sug...

re: Almost Mid-Season MLB Awards - BenDover
WAR should compliment your argument, not supplement it. It's a decent stat but Seager being .5 better in WAR doesn't overcome the difference between the two at the plate. It's really all a moot point because Goldschmidt is running away with the MVP so far....

re: Almost Mid-Season MLB Awards - BenDover
Outside of walks, Zimmerman is better than Seager in literally every offensive category. I know Seager is better defensively and plays a premium position, but I just don't see how that could overcome how much better Zimmy has been offensively. He's leading Seager by more than 100pts in OPS and ha...

re: Almost Mid-Season MLB Awards - BenDover
Goldschmidt has been amazing but Ryan Zimmerman hasn't gotten nearly enough recognition for the year he's had. He's probably my #2 for the NL MVP at the moment. I agree with all your picks...

re: Wait. Can the cavs get George and Carmelo? - BenDover
Right lol. People keep saying "theres no point, no one is beating GSW". Well shit, everyone knows they're the favorites but are they supposed to just give up and not even try? I may not like the way their team is constructed but I appreciate them not just rolling over...

re: NBA Trade Talk - BenDover
[quote]He has one year left[/quote] Right. And what're the odds he extends? If he doesn't, you're right back to where you were before they got him last year-- bottom of the barrel. And that's with AD. If you make the AD trade, and Boogie still leaves, you still have 4 high potential guys to bu...

re: NBA Trade Talk - BenDover
I know I'm in the minority, but I'd probably consider that if I was NO. They're not going anywhere with him, let's face the music. That package is literally building your team with 4 top 5 picks and you've still got Boogie. They'd be in a better situation after taking that package than they are now ...

re: NBA Trade Talk - BenDover
If we're being honest no one has a realistic shot of beating GSW in a 7 game series barring injuries to KD or Curry. But that Boston lineup I posted has at-worst the same chance CLE has and I think a better one really....

BKN '18 is untouchable if I'm Ainge. If Phil says he'll only do the deal if Boston includes that Nets pick then I pass, take Jackson and take one of the 4 prospects that you mentioned and take my shot that way....

re: NBA Trade Talk - BenDover
I agree. But if NYK fans are being rational (longshot, I know) they should be on board with that haul. It keeps them from voluntarily tanking and they'd still be putting a decent product on the court while developing and building towards the future....

re: NBA Trade Talk - BenDover
On top of that, Boston still has BKN's pick next year which undoubtedly will be in the top 5. Admittedly I'm not privy on who the top college prospects are but if there's an elite PG they could take him and avoid paying IT 30+m when he's going into his 30's and run the offense through KP/Hayward. ...

re: NBA Trade Talk - BenDover
I think it does. It has what the Cavs lack-- depth, and legitimate post presence. It's really not a bad deal for either side IMO. Boston finally cashes in on the assets they've been collecting and NYK can start their rebuild. Look at it from NYK perspective. IF they accept the deal I proposed ear...

re: NBA Trade Talk - BenDover
I wouldn't include Brown in that package. #3, Crowder and the SAC/LA pick should be able to bait Phil's senile arse into a deal for KP. That still allows you to go after Hayward too. PG: IT SG: Bradley SF: Hayward PF: Horford/KP C: KP/Horford And you still have Brown and Smart coming off th...

re: How about a national recruiting board? - BenDover
What fans would even post on there? We've got a decent number of Buckeye fans, they'd post. You'd obviously be on there trolling like you do every other board. And we've got about 4 USC posters. Doesn't make sense ...
