Fangraphs has wRC+ for minor league hitters, which does some adjusting for league and park, and Gordon was doing pretty well (above average) up until this year, even with the lack of power.

His wRC+ lines up with my expectations. Previous to 2017, he was a solid, though unspectacular, hitter. This season is waaaaay above that. It will be interesting to follow if/when that BABIP normalizes.

Gordon may end up being an okay MLB shortstop, but when it comes to triples, he won't hold a candle to Sano.

Sano could possibly set a triples record, just by stopping at third on his home runs?

shouldn't a home run count as a single, double, and triple anyway? I mean, he did touch all the bases...

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?
