I think he'll still be productive.  Sorry, but I'll go on his track record of the past 3 years and not the 100 ABs this year.  If he's healthy this guy is going to be a productive batter for us.  I do worry about him in the OF, tho.

If it comes to that, he'll be the world's most expensive bench bat. I'll bet he can pinch hit .275.

Yeah, 20 Ks in 59 ABs so far this season. Not good.

Agreed. Taylor would have had last season in AAA to work on his hitting, to kill the K's. Den Dekker ought to be the 4th OF. In fact, I'd rather see den Dekker in CF now. Let Taylor be the LF replacement.

Sample size and all that, but den Dekker has a higher K rate than Taylor.

Compare the MLB stats for Taylor and den Dekker to get a larger sample size. Taylor strikes out at a rate of 189 per 162 game season; den Dekker at 98. Taylor is not ready.

I agree with you. But MdD might be no better this year.

Meh.. I think once Turner comes back I wouldn't mind letting Taylor just find his swing by batting him 8th and having Turner as your leadoff hitter.

Is it possible Trea Turner is the true White Whale?

By then Revere will be back though.

CF Revere
3B Rendon
RF Harper
1B Zimmerman
2B Murphy
LF Werth or Taylor
C Ramos or Lobatón
P Pitcher's Spot
SS Turner

Too progressive? Imagine Turner and Revere just stealing everything in front of Rendon and Harper.

Not for a few more weeks it isn't. Predict a straight 50/50 split until Revere comes back, at which point Taylor is the one who gets optioned.

That's proof stats don't tell whole stories. Both of the hits should have been GIDP if not for bad umpires or other factors.

How can I prove it? I don't see why I need to anyways. I don't care what anyone thinks. It is a fact in my mind.

He sure did.  But den Dekker made three great plays in the field, hit a home run, hit yesterday too.  This is the turning point.

You saw the unreviewable play, right? Wiped out a double play

Those plays wash out by the end of the season but today was not a great one for him.
