Yes.It does.Do you know how many qualified infielders that play SS or 2B or 3B had an OPS of .750 last year? (Not all three, just any of the three)
35.If you take out 3B there were only 22.(And I'd say Ehire's ability to play SS/2B is a key part of his value)
So, yes, suggesting the Twins sign two such players (at least one of which is for a backup role) is completely out of touch with reality.
First of all... I'm not sure where you are getting .750 from?
Second of all... If you are making a projection that he will produce a .750 OPS and if you are right. Adrianza becomes just another example in my eyes of how the Twins screwed up again in 2018 when it came to playing time decisions and playing time allocation. .That OPS is Grossman and Field type production.
Murphy, Asdrubal, LeMahieu, Lowrie, Dietrich and Desclasco are all middle infield players who were all legitimately over .750 last year and available right now. Kinsler, Schoop, Harrison, Beckham and Dozier have been over before.
If the free agents are just too expensive. We could simply mention bargain basement acquisition players who hit that magic mark with at least 300 AB's. I'll include some 200 AB's candidates because Adrianza wasn't supposed to get 300 AB's in the first place.
Cards: Yairo Munoz
Dodgers: Muncy, Chris Taylor, Kike Hernandez
Mets: McNeil and Flores (I cheated... Flores was only .736 but Adrianza was only .680)
Orioles: Villar (I cheated... he was only .729 and I'm only counting 200 AB's with the Orioles and not the Brewers but... Adrianza got stretched to .750 so... he's on my list)
Pirates: Adam Frazier
Rays: Wendle and Robertson (throw in Brad Miller... he's inexpensive now and looking for work).
Red Sox: Holt
Reds: He's expensive now but Scooter was once bargain basement.
Tigers: Our favorite Niko Goodrum was close at .747
Also Aledmys Diaz who was traded to Houston for a 24th ranked prospect. He cleared the .750 mark with the Jays last year and was paid 2M.
The reason it's hard (For the Twins) to find a middle infielder who can't surpass .750 OPS is because they consistently settle for guys who produce at a .680 clip.
If they can't find better offensive production than Adrianza... there is no reason for me to get up tomorrow morning.
