batting average can be used just as effectively as war when it comes to baseball conversations. an average will give you a good idea about how often you can expect a hit from a player. sure some players struggle at situational hitting and there are other factors but its a viable gauge. sure war has its uses and a lot of people love it but I don’t feel its needed for me to evaluate cardinal players cause I know enough about baseball to evaluate what I see and I mainly watch cardinal games. it might help for players on other teams but im not interested in those players much outside of a few. also since I know that a lot of these new stats don’t devalue some things as much as they should, I don’t trust them at all.February 17, 2020 at 9:25 pm #122722
Once again, would you please kindly capitalize the first word of your sentences like everyone else does. It will be much easier to read. Thank you very much.February 17, 2020 at 9:53 pm #122723atripleshyofthecycleParticipantFree
Fancy stats won’t show us how Yadier Molina was a better hitter than Paul Goldschmidt and Marcell Ozuna last year. Not sure what the manager is thinking when putting the lineup together, though.February 17, 2020 at 9:54 pm #122724

bccrabby? Please explain, ChiTown. I don’t understand your post.February 17, 2020 at 10:31 pm #122729Brian WaltonKeymasterPaid - Annual
Let’s just stop here. You asked politely once, but did not get a response. Better to let it drop, please, than to continue. Different people are going to have different posting styles. My advice is that if you can’t read it, skip over it.February 18, 2020 at 8:12 am #122746
Will do, Brian. Thought he might have missed the first request.February 18, 2020 at 9:45 am #122774
Supposedly the no batting gloves, LHH, and bat resting on his shoulder as the pitcher goes into the wind up, reminds many of Carpenter.February 18, 2020 at 10:32 am #122783
Put “Brad Miller Video” into Google and enjoy his 2018 highlights. We may have a very productive addition.February 18, 2020 at 11:25 am #122791Minuteman3ParticipantFree

Oh no. Say it ain’t so Joe. One of those is enough.February 18, 2020 at 11:30 am #122794stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual

Miller is the kind of signing the Cards used to crush. Hopefully this will be another one.February 18, 2020 at 11:40 am #122799
Amen ST25. Let’s hope he isn’t Ty Wigginton “light”. I mean with the bat, not the actual weight.
BC, I don’t know if we watched the same video, but in the one I watched, his glove looks a lot better than expected and the clutch hits are promising. I’m still in the great signing camp.
His swing sure does look a lot like Carp though…. that is worrisome, but at only $2M vs $38M, it makes it more acceptable.

Miller video was impressive. Hope you don’t mind but I went looking for a Dylan Carlson video and he is not too shabby either despite it all being in the minors:

I agree. His defense looks a lot better than some have mentioned.February 18, 2020 at 5:29 pm #122840
Well bccran I actually did miss the first post. I cant promise that im gonna put capitals on every post. it isn’t my style not that I have one. if I remember I will but don’t count on it. im just putting out general information. im not trying to write an editorial but if I remember, ill try.February 18, 2020 at 8:13 pm #122853mspaidParticipantFree
Willie, I like the substance of your posts but the grammatical errors are annoying sometimes. im and ill need to be capitalized AND an apostrophe.February 18, 2020 at 8:49 pm #122857
Willie, no judgement like some, but I am curious….. What device doesn’t auto correct that kind of thing?February 18, 2020 at 11:08 pm #122859Euro DandyParticipantFree

This sentence has a bit of humorous charm about it. If I didn’t know better, I’d say willie is yanking bccran’s chain.February 19, 2020 at 4:29 pm #122940
Last September, Miller was the only
player in Phillies history to have 3 multi home run games over a 9 game span. He could be a true key for the Cards this season.February 19, 2020 at 4:43 pm #122942Euro DandyParticipantFree
Let’s hope, bccran. There’s a niche staring him in the face that needs to be filled.February 19, 2020 at 8:03 pm #123013
Well apparently cardsfaninchitown my device doesn’t do that. also there is no way im capitalizing the start of every sentence. ive never understood how people have problems with reading something just because one word isn’t capitalized or that there aren’t paragraphs. now if I put all the words together without spaces, I might could see a problem. doing stuff like this is fun time for me and im not going to make it seem like work just to satisfy some.February 20, 2020 at 7:22 am #123031
I also like the fact that Miller has played over 100 major league games in the outfield. A combination of he and Edman give the skipper a lot of positional flexibility.
