Re: Saget: Fearing the Worst

March 31, 2014

I confess: I have CDO. What’s CDO? It’s just like OCD, but the letters are arranged alphabetically, the way they fucking should be.

I actually wonder if Saget has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in re: his Big Red Machine. Saget picked up… Brayan Pena. Some Pena stats:

2010: 158 AB, 306 OBP, 1 HR, 2 SB

2011: 222 AB, 288 OBP, 3 HR, 0 SB

2012: 212 AB, 262 OBP, 2 HR, 0 SB

2013: 229 AB, 315 OBP, 4 HR, 0 SB

Can somebody please tell me what that stat set is good for? “Shaggy will trade actual talent for it”, while possibly true, is not a valid answer. 

I understand Saget’s goal is to get all the Reds. You know what? These are 200 AB of minus power, minus speed, and minus OBP that can be safely passed. You want another Reds catcher, Son? Pick up Johnny Bench. His counting stats will be very close to Pena’s and at least he won’t hurt you in OBP.
