For anyone bemoaning the loss of Aaron Hicks he isn't all that and a bag of chips.

He would fit on the Twins team pretty well, I'll tell you that much.

Kind of ironic that there are a half dozen ex-Twin catchers in the majors and the Twins currently have the duo of Garner and Wilson.

He's down from last year, and it looks like he is in one of his low BABIP valleys, but even so, Aaron Hicks has a 91 wRC+ this season (ahead of Grossman's 2018, basically equal to Buxton's 2017), plus defense, plus baserunning, all out of CF. On pace for a roughly 2.0-2.4 WAR season, which is solidly average.

I was going to ask if you meant John Hicks, but I just looked him up and he appears to have been fairly useful in Detroit so far too...

NikoGoodrum had 2 home runs in a game yesterday, giving a "makeshift" Tigers team a victory over Cleveland. I'm sure Gardy was excited. Man, where did this power come from?

I read that today too. Great stuff. Honesty, it brought tears to my eyes. Kudos to Drew for doing that!

Our old friend Pedro Florimon did it again, not only pitching a scoreless inning of relief for the Phillies, but homering in the same game too. a trick that even Otani hasn't done (yet) this year. I also love the original headline on the story on Yahoo news that touted the accomplishment by the Philadelphia "star" player!

Never made it to Twins but was in the system for 6 years, Yangervis Solarte is having another solid season. 

 

He kind of reminds me of Escobar, actually.
