But he had a sub-.200 BABIP in June, so he also wasn't likely to stay as bad as he had been.

Yeah, it would make sense to have Taylor, QWOP and maybe Kelly ready to go, and to make the decision who to bring up

Could be. Or we might need both of them up if Elias needs more than a few days to uncramp his forearm.

Then I wonder if Erasmo sticks around for another turn or two, or if they swap either him or a reliever to get another position player up.

Ackley must be contagious - keep everyone important away from left field.

I could live with a power-only 113 career OPS+ if it came with Zunino's defense.

He'd be a legend if he had retired without explanation after being amazing for four months of 2011.

I couldn't find a Potato Dustin Ackley, but you could probably swap out the hat of this Potato Dustin Pedroia.

Especially if (big if) there is any legitimacy to the rumor that Franklin + for Zobrist was seriously discussed or offered.
Commented on MLB trade rumors: A's interested in Nick Franklin on Jul 21 2014, 8:40p
Agreed, it would be pretty surprising to see Franklin go to a contender unless it was an exchange of stalled/blocked prospects

Yes. Also, Hart, Smoak and LogDog still project to be something like league average hitters the rest of the way.

At least "TBA" has the air of mystery about it. Could be anyone!

They're more or less the same player.

It's like inserting an error into a block of code so you can see if someone is plagiarizing you.

I would be fine with having one left-handed and one right-handed James Jones on the roster.

Well, they are tied for last if you look at just offense (wRC+) rather than total position player value...

It takes a special kind of dipshittery to make Rasmus look like the sensible, mature Colby.
Commented on 7/19: Open game thread on Jul 19 2014, 9:26p
But it's also more likely than a 1/5 chance. He's currently lined up to have his last start around the last day of the season

He's at 2.7 RA9-WAR, so that's basically his upper limit if you give him sole credit for his run prevention.

Beltre would have passed the stone without leaving the field.

Starter I think, but if he's lined up as 5th in the rotation he can probably pitch a few innings without them needing to replace his start.

The Padres are at home, so he may be racing up I-5 right now.

Felix should get some consideration as well, so there might be some degree of vote-splitting.

He had the worst defensive value of any player over the years spanned by his career at -202.8 runs, offsetting almost all of his offense.

Chris Taylor can probably hit enough to be valuable as a shortstop in MLB. There's no reason to expect him to be a viable DH.

Slightly more actually, with just under 3 years combined control vs. just under 2.5 for Stanton.
