Catch & Release
Can we drop Felix please? His drain on the salary cap is quite substantial, especially for a player who seems to be injured after every failed outing and plays in AAA.
Have been watching his numbers rise, unreal!Seager a few days ago was hitting .363 going back to July with 9 homers and 20 RBIs. He has added a couple homers and a half dozen RBIs since. Guess those Zunino tips are working. Seager in the past few weeks has been one of the hottest hitters in the majors.
Oh, I am here to admit my guilt for badmouthing Seager, it was easy when he was hitting .180 and getting $19 guaranteed today, and for the next couple years. Up .70 points is nothing to sneeze at. Pretty impressive rebound. Hell, monumental numbers last 4-6 weeks or so! I was pulling for him.Seager still killing it at the plate. Nothing from the nay sayers.
I think it is damn impressive. He was in the beginning of completely changing his approach to hitting when he was injured missing a good portion of spring training where one was expected to make those changes and adjustments. Came back from injury mid season continuing to work on his approach to hitting then finally hits on it and starts knocking the cover off the ball. The whole time still performing on defense like the gold glove third baseman that he is.I still would like to see him do it early in the season, or when he got back from injury, but he atleast he is not making me fear his coming back next year and, if he can carry this over to the first half next season, he will be the frontrunner for next year's token Seattle Mariners All Star : )
They should have traded Vogelbach before the deadline came.
