Gnu Gnotes From The Eyeball Scout

Even in a non-contending year come fascinating stories that compel you to come back for more mediocre baseball. Especially fun to watch are the young players who have talent, if not polish, and today the Eyeball Scout hones in a few of them...

Cristian Pache

Considering he is batting all of .155/.197/.233 (a robust 29 wRC+), I find myself somewhat sanguine around Pache’s future with the A’s. Of course you start with the elite CF defense that raises his floor considerably, but it doesn’t mean you can keep a .155 hitter in the lineup every day.
