  5. His BABIP is up there so I sold high. I have Aramis Ramirez so I traded him and Tori Hunter for Hunter Pence and Marco Scutaro.

  10. I figured he was overperforming too, so I had to change my team name from Donaldson Duck to Headley Lamarr. That makes sense and you all care, right? Right?

  11. These interview and analysis articles really are brilliant. For me, they are the most interesting baseball reading around.

  13. When you said, “In A-Ball, he was 87% better than league average,” did you mean his wRC+ was 187, or 274? The -100 gets ‘em every time.

  14. Very happy to have found this article. I am in the midst of trading away Beltre in a package of other players to get back a nice combo of Verlander and Goldschmidt.
    What made me comment is that I felt OK trading Beltre after picking up Donaldson Mid-April & watching him do his thing. I’m no numbers wizard like everyone else that hangs out @ this site, but I’m not lost “every time” I come here either.
    In my research I saw this guy was gonna hit, and depending on his placement in the A’s lineup he could score & drive in a lot of runs. So to me, w/ Beltre @ 3d he made a perfect Waiver grab for a Sub or a DH. And this article is basically telling me to stop worrying about it b/c this guy wants to “BE LIKE BELTE” so he’s a perfect replacement too..

  15. It’s a little bit high (.343), but he could be a guy who sits a little bit above league average due to him being above league average in line drive percentage (23%). All stats point to him taking a leap this year (SO% down, BB% up, XBH% up). He might not be as good as we’ve seen from last August until now, but if he isn’t, he’s really close.

  16. (gasp) really?

  17. Thanks for mucking up the comments with an inside view into your fantasy team and thought process therein… Please note to all thinking of commenting about their fantasy teams (on a non fantasy posts) that it will add nothing to the conversation.

  18. Eno, this article is a first rate. I have been a JD fan for as long as he has been on the A’s– not very long in reality–but that’s okay because why would we be longtime fans of this guy? JD is exactly the type of ball player I like to bring up when waxing romantic about baseball and why it rules over all other sports… Thank you for this contribution.
