A One-Sentence Post on...Productivity

Let this roll around your noggin for a few moments, and consider it for all it's worth, and from every angle: Noted slugger John McDonald (pictured above) now has more home runs this season than Travis Snider, Aaron Hill and Edwin Encarnacion...combined.

And this isn't, like, ONE WEEK into the season. This is 20% of the way through the schedule.

I more surprised and dissapointed in EE. Not for his defence cause we all knew what he's like at 3B. But at his complete lack of power and 0 HR's. A far cry from the 30-40hr's that many people were predicting out of him this year.

Love it!

Gruber's Mullet, ditto on that one. Maybe it was me just overdosing on the AA Kool-Aid, but I truly believed Eddy had a shot at 30 HR's this year (if healthy).

Is the PMOD the greatest bench player in Blue Jays history?

Interesting to see how far forward in the box Babe was. His back foot looks about square with the plate. I can't think of a current player that does that.

I was going to start arguing that McDonald has become a better hitter in the last few years but scratch that. His current OPS is exactly the same as his career OPS. I was going to argue that he's pretty good against lefties but his career splits are the same. The offensive silver lining that I'm looking for just isn't there. As good as he is on the other side of the field, he truly is the benchmark for offensive ineptitude.

Good call Anonymous. Shit on someone for not spending 100% of their free time writing for no pay solely for your personal benefit.

Douche.
