I know why people are saying what they are about changing the roster and calling up players.I think what people are really asking for is a personnel change with the team. They are all hoping bringing up Bradley, Johnson etc will give us a better overall offense and help this team win more games at the end of the day. Even though people seem to overall want to punt the season, doesn't mean they don't hope the young guys don't produce and still get us a wild card spot at the end of the day. I think people want to see a change and they are hoping for these guys to bring a spark to the team that we need.
I’m not saying these guys aren’t good. I really like both players as prospects and my post history proves that.
I’m just saying that if you’re using the box score to scout a prospect to determine their readiness for the MLB, it’s not a great determinant right now with the extra juiced ball in AAA.
I mean, shit, 7-8-9 hitters in AAA have an OPS in the mid .700’s or higher. It’s crazy. The home run rate in AAA has gone from 0.8 per 9 to 1.3 per 9. Based on MLB home run rate stats, that’s like going from 1990 to 2019 and MiLB did it in one season.
