    Better than Butera for sure.

    Kuble is really impressing me. I'm not sure why we got rid of him in the 1st place

    Nice tidy 1-2-3 inning from Correia.

    UZR and Range KILLED him last year but prior he was close to average as a SS, from the eyebal test (take with 10 grains of salt) I think he has the chance to play a solid SS. Lifetime .692 isn't going to set the world on fire, but it is probably at least .100 more than what our current SS options would give us. Plus he has a little speed and some upside left.

    What do his D metrics look like over the last several years? Not enough games played to get anything meaningful out of them?

    Apparently not the case for Renes.

    I can just smell the Nunez vs. Drew thread(s). Sort of like fresh cut grass. On a horse ranch.

    We didn't get rid of him. He left as a free agent, likely for more money.

    But we still could have offered him more.

    Good to hear. Looks like a smart move, and another sign that Ryan is back in business. In fact, it's so encouraging it's enough to make up for the disappointment of knowing that there's now a much lower probability that we'll get to hear Bert's search-and-destroy pronunciation skills tackle 'Sulbaran'. fwiw, my money was going to be on 'Sulburban', pronounced like the SUV.

    It annoys me that Gardy leaves Correia in for more pitches when he's getting lit up than in his first outing in Chicago when he was sailing along after a rough couple innings.

    Thank goodness. Was afraid I'd make it through a home game without hearing 'Come on Eileen' again.
