Goldy is making his big salary this year, for sure. He started slow but has been money for a while now. June 1 to today, he has a .313/.387/.548 line for a 152 wRC+. Not to mention, his defense has saved a ton of runs over the last few years. I’m sure Arenado loves having his Hoover glove at first.
If Ponce keeps going off on Yadi he will find himself in a different organization next year and that is not hyperbole. He might need to be in a different organization anyway considering his lousy performance this year.
You’re right on both accounts GScott. I think the frustration started when Yadi dropped the foul tip, and Ponce has to be stronger than that mentally. Instead of getting the man out, he walked him and walked two more after that batter
25 – I think it’s dumb for anyone to question Goldy early season again. I know most on this forum didn’t but he really hasn’t put up a bad season for us. Even 2019 wasn’t that bad. His numbers were obviously going to take some kind of hit coming from Chase to Busch, but he’s been great overall. He’s always been a slow starter too. I’d like to think his approach/swing isn’t one that leads to a dramatic downfall at age 33 either, but what do I know (so don’t quote me)
