I'd like to have $330,000,000 and find out.

.910 OPS for the year so far which is higher than what he had last year. Their lineup will be fine. Pitching is their problem.

Sounds like a you problem.

It's all generational.    In the 50s and 60s, there was no "yinz".    It was always "yunz".    When the yuppies and hipsters moved in and they tore down Forbes, Three Rivers, the Civic Arena and the mills shut down, the "yinzers" thought they invented history.

I wasn't trying to contradict. I just think it's funny that there exists such a detailed description of the nuance on urban dictionary...

I understand and appreciate that blue but it's like I tell my son, "History didn't start when you (my son) were born."    My guess is young people born in the 60s who became fans of the winning Steelers and Pens are the nexus of the usage of yinz.    Band wagon fans in other sections of the country took on the yinzer mantra hoping their being from Tidewater and wearing a Pens jersey would authenticate their fandom.     During the transition from blue collar to health care and service industry, many hipsters, etc. moved into the city and have tried to mold it in their image.    Ain't gonna happen.     As an old fart (:old:), when I hear "yinz" I think either young or band wagon.       :)     Hell, there's a whole website on Pittsburgese:

http://www.pittsburghese.com/

I moved away from W PA when I got out of the Army.    I go back to visit a couple of times a year.    When I'm out and about in the DC area, I often pick out the "accent" and my first question is, "Where yunz from?"     The ensuing conversation can last a long time.     :)

OT   I attended a game during the Pirates series.    I had an 8 X 10 picture of my avatar with me.    I'd chat up a fan in Bucs' gear and ask 'em if they knew who he was.    Interesting conversations around that picture.

Hellickson tonight will 100% get destroyed, Corbin may be able to put together a good start. Sanchez also a guaranteed L and monster bomb from Bryce.

Harper beat us last night by basically, just being in the lineup.  He forced the pitching change from Hellickson and 2 batters later the game was over.

Ryan Howard 2.0.  Last 15 games:

.204 / .328 /.426

For comparison:

Brian Dozier: .213 / .373 /.468

Harper - .235 / .380 / .478, 6 HR, 19 R, 20 RBI, 1 SB
Robles - .258 / .299 / .483, 6 HR, 23 R,13 RBI, 7 SB
Soto - .248 / .368 / .467, 6 HR, 16 R, 22 RBI, 3 SB

OK, so the Robles batting eye is a bit weaker, but Soto is essentially equaling Bryce right now and we aren't losing any power with either of the replacements.

Philly fans only have about 28 more games of his cold streak before he turns things around :)

Last 28 games: .192/.323/.356. Good news: only 12 more games to go for Philly fans before Bryce completes his quarter of the season cold streak!

The comparable is Adam Eaton as he was the odd man out if we kept Harper.

Eaton:
.291 / .351 / .396, 2 HR, 19R, 10RBI, 4 SB

So higher average, lower OBP/Slugging, and a few more stolen bases.  At this point it's hard to argue that we've lost anything.

Harper has a wRC+ of 122, Eaton's is 100. SO Harper is 22% more productive than Eaton. Which I would say is much better for the Nats given the difference in salary.
