he is right, compare r howards last 766 AB to matt joyces first 766 AB in the bigs and you have similar AVG, OBP and SLUG…

not much difference just ballpark factors an lineup factors…

r howard is slipping to matt joyce status… even if matt joyce doesnt bat lefties.

You’re literally like that lame Telo guy, except not literally, because you’re significantly less literate.

Bumgarner was a top prospect. I guess that San Francisco environment followed him throughout the minors.

This. Bumgarner’s got a ton of controlled time left, and has accumulated 5.4 WAR in 220 innings so far. Beyond that, he’s only 21. To leave him off the top 50 is a major oversight.

Hanson, but not Zimmermann? Zimmermann is putting up better numbers almost across the board, and both have similar service time

Bummed I missed the chat. Were any other prospects considered?

BTW, love this series. Always a fun week of reading.

Bumgarner’s “top 3 fip” is fueled by an obscenely low HR rate at home. He gets a decent amount of ground balls, but not nearly enough to believe that his HR rate is anywhere near sustainable in a neutral MLB environment, although maybe he should get some credit for using his park to his advantage. He doesn’t have elite stuff, and he’s already had velocity scares (although he appears to be over that at this point). He probably belongs somewhere in the top 50, but there are enough flaws for someone to make an argument that he doesn’t.
