Well, he had a 4.0 WAR last year ... I guess the O's just didn't want to risk arbitration with him after the huge season he just had.  Could easily see him asking for, and getting awarded, around $8 mil.

I guess we really are warped. As we see it (as I see it; I haven't checked to see if others agree but I bet they do), he had the best season by an AL hitter in standard roto leagues. For that he gets DFA'd by the Orioles last week, then traded yesterday to the Marlins for Easton Lucas.

Apparently Villar's last night was No. 6106.

Home Run Watch

41 home runs were hit in yesterday's games, bringing MLB's season total to 6125. That means 2017 has been surpassed and this will be the most home runs in a single season in league history. It remains to be seen how much a gap 2019 will create with 2nd place, given there's still a couple weeks of baseball to play. Here's a look at the top HR seasons in MLB history.

After striking out in his first at-bat, hit for the cycle against the Yankees. Before we get today's stat feed, he's earned $23 and $21. But he's still going to have to pick it up on the bases to earn Rotoman's projection.

Settles an epic battle in Anaheim with a homer in the 16th after both teams score three in the 15th. Tough loss for the Angels. Great win for the going-nowhere O's.

Three knocks and two SB yesterday. The first three hitters in the O's lineup are really not bad. Reason right there to use an opener.

Salfino and I had a long Villar argument on our last Breakfast Table podcast (he's con, I'm pro). I'll let you break the tie. Part of my argument - we just want the numbers (I don't care if Villar is better in our game than the real game), the Orioles will probably be DGAF on the bases, and 2016 happened. Plus, of course, Villar was a god in Baltimore - maybe just knowing you're in the lineup every day has some value.

Villar stole 35 last year in 460 at bats. Presumably he'll play full time on a terrible team and have a chance at 700 plate appearances. I think 43 swipes is conservative if he stays healthy. Still...

He might not stay healthy. He also has changed as a player. He had that great 2016 season while walking a lot, but in 2017 he got all screwed up. Maybe because of the homers, trying to hit more of them. But slowly the eye is coming back.

I got burned by that 2017 season, so maybe I'm a tad gun shy. I'm definitely not betting him up, but the projection shows he's capable.

The difference between projections, which are predictions, and bids, which are bets.

Just two years ago, Villar earned less than Peter's bet for 2019. He is very far from a stable commodity.

Peter's probably happy to see him go once he reaches $19. No one got him cheap.

I'll keep chasing, because speed is so hard to find. But I'm not counting on 35 steals again. 43 steals? That looks like a weighted average that is distorted by Villar's crazy season three years ago.

Doesn't mean he can't steal 43 this year; just means no one's betting on it.
