Jaff Decker Oakland Athletics

Only because he's a former Padre :-)

Nationals signed OF Jaff Decker to a minor league contract.

Decker had posted good numbers this season with the Triple-A affiliate of the Braves, but the 28-year-old outfielder owns a brutal .174/.274/.236 career batting line over parts of five seasons at the MLB level. He'll report to the Nationals' Triple-A team in Syracuse.

There has to some physical explanation -- if not the eyes, something else.

Improved his launch angle, and his hard hit rate is up over 40% this year.  I like finding those catchers in their late 20's who suddenly become confident in their ability to catch major league pitchers, and their hitting flips a switch.

J.R. Murphy's page. Clearly he's improved his launch angle.

We had one player drop out of our 10 team NL one........so we played with 9 teams....one of the perks....I got Belt for $1 and have him for $1 next year too.

Paul Goldschmidt Arizona Diamondbacks

Me neither, not to this extent, but I did have some serious concerns about his value if and when he stopped running. I had/have the same concerns with Altuve. Do the Astros, with that offense, need/want Altuve running like we've seen him run in the past? They want him healthy in October for another run at a World Series.

Now with the Mets. 

Again, this is why the Mets are the Mets.

Andypro - sorry pal...I just enjoy making fun of the Mets.

Love the HR's and steals, but that AVG makes me throw up in my mouth a little.

I expect that will normalize and he will earn these numbers.

Paul Goldschmidt Arizona Diamondbacks

Yeah...I did not see this coming. There are a lot of upset Goldschmidt owners right now.

Willy Adames Tampa Bay Rays

Here's the thing.  By sending him down in 3 days, they are basically saying that he will remain down until mid-late April plus 3 days next year if he doesn't get a cup of coffee in September.  If he does, he's down until June next year.  It's a total travesty.

And save some cash down the road. I'm sure we'll hear that he needs "some seasoning" or the "D still needs some work" in about three days, give or take. Just once, I'd love to hear the truth, but alas it can't happen.

Tim McLeod tlmcleod

Because, why market your best young players as part of the rebuild when you can keep them down in AAA to win the MVP there.

Leads the NL with a wRC+ of 176.

Nice to see him produce at an elite level, finally.

I think the specific days are left over from when we got our weekly stats from hard copy USA Today, which printed AL on Mondays and NL on Tuesdays.

Willy Adames Tampa Bay Rays

No big surprise with this news...unfortunately.

Tim McLeod tlmcleod

"Rays manager Kevin Cash noted Tuesday that Willy Adames will only be up for 2-3 days".

Sigh...

Two of my NL leagues still do weekly trannies on Tuesday. I believe it goes back to the days before internet stat services when one commish was handling both a sister AL and NL league. This way he wouldn't have to deal with both on the same day.

jeff merk jeffamerk

Actually, since on Mondays a lot of teams have the day off ... and they then hold off on making roster decisions (like adding a guy from DL) until Tuesday ... I like Tuesday transactions better.

Byron Buxton Minnesota Twins

.157/.192/.200 slash line in 21 games to start the season.

Last season was just a tease....I was wrong on him.

How about a page for J.R. Murphy of the Dbacks?
