    LeBlanc is 36, yeah, but Morton is 37 and just looked like he would no hit us.

    My brother who has lived in California for decades says LeBlanc wasn’t a bad hitting pitcher years ago. I wish him well, but when you add that signing to all the Indy guys its as if we had a plane go down in a horrible tragedy are scrambling to field teams at every level. Can anyone explain what on earth happened to the pipeline?

    We did have more guys hit by pitches than we hit with pitches, so maybe things are turning around.

    His stats don’t warrant being cut loose by all those organizations so clearly it’s his age and making room for the younger players.

    He’s not great by any stretch but he’s not bad either.

    I’ll bet he’s a solid clubhouse guy.

    In case anyone was wanting a distressing observation, Carp’s OBP is the same as Goldy’s.

    But Goldy is better in Avg., HR, RBI, BB’s, SLG, OPS, and much better at defense.

    True gscottar, but if you can’t get on base at a better clip than Carp you are hurtin for certain.

    Seems like a lot of double counting there. For instance, avg and BB’s (along with HBP) combine to make up OBP.

    OBP + SLG combine to make up OPS.

    Saying he has more HR”s and BB’s? Yeah, he also has twice as many ABs.

    RBI’s are determined by who is on in front of you.

    This year, he is really just better than Carp in slugging and defense.

    So two out of three categories then?

    In fact Carp has a better OBP than Edman, Arenado, Molina, DeJong, Bader, Knizner, and Thomas. Why single out Goldy?

    Carp takes a bashing in the GT’s, but recently it’s not deserved.

    Three singles yesterday, Goldy, Carp and Rondon.
    Two HBP, Carlson and Carp.

    Unless he’s producing 2018 numbers he’s a bum. The narrative has stuck regardless what month it is. June splits above.
