For the last 3 years or so bref has included spring stats during ST and in that is Opponent quality. So you can see Joc has gaudy spring numbers but his quality opp. is 6.4 with 5 being the equivalent of High A(California and Carolina) and 7 equiv. of AA. He does though have the gap power to fill the basket in Wrigley.

This strikes me as reckless language ... "he could be expected to reach the 36 home runs he hit during his last full season in 2019 with the Dodgers"

Joc Pederson (OF) CHI-N - Mar. 09

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=764707

Pederson went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Athletics.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The 28-year-old is fitting in nicely with the Cubs, as he now has a robust 1.672 OPS and three home runs this spring in six games. Pederson is essentially replacing Kyle Schwarber in Chicago, and he could be expected to reach the 36 home runs he hit during his last full season in 2019 with the Dodgers.

Picking up from a Brandon Nimmo post, my Joc Pederson projection was very optimistic about his batting average and a little too rosy about his homer power. And I adjusted my bid up a little, though I may knock him back down again as I think about him. He's of high enough risk I don't think I want to bid him up to full price.

Darn you are right Peter.  I should have double-checked number Alex's Jan 10 post (missing that zero) on Schwarber before celebrating!  It was too good to be true!

One Cubbies blog agrees with me on the Pederson-for-Schwarber swap:

Cots has Schwarber signing for $7M this year with a $3M buyout next year, which they make as a $10M contract for this year.

If i recall, Schwarber signed for something like $10 mill. Cubs got roughly the same hitter and a guy who can play all OF slots if need be for $3 mill less. Schwarbs was due to get between $8-9 mill in arbitration so Cubs saved only a mill or so.

Considering that the Nats only paid Schwarber $1 million, this looks like an overpay to me.  But OK, I'm a Nats fan. 

Anyone besides me think that these two are pretty much the same players?  Maybe Joc plays better defense?
