White sox d.f.a. Ervin Santana


When is his media statement about how the White Sox are letting all their good players go?

Really impressed with Perez. He had some tough luck of the bobbled slow roller to third, the missed pop up and missed call by umpire and got out of it without hard contact or runs scored.

What's his groundball %? And what about exit velocity?


His career exit velocity is 89.1, higher than MLB average of 87.4

His career launch angle is 12.9, higher than MLB average of 11. Also, last year and this, it is over 16%.

Kepler’s hard hit % is 37.7, also better than the 34% MLB average.


Like I said, the numbers don’t support the assertion that Kepler hits “a lot” of weak pop flys. He hits them less frequently than the average MLB hitter. Yet his BABIP is ridiculously low compared with an average MLB hitter.

And ... home runs don't count towards BABIP ... What a weird stat.

Okay, so Buxton IS playing tonight. I was wondering where he was.

It’s rare that he hits balls hard too any area of the field other than the right-most third. When he does, it’s an accident...takes the same swing at every pitch and tries to pull everything.

Yes, he should hit more of those popups.

I'm busy watching the NFL draft right now

I want to say something about this but I think it would lead to moderator action.
