Garcia with another homer. Bob and Frannie showed a couple of good fielding plays yesterday. Is this the real new Luis?

Mark Canha is the rich-man's Corey Dickerson.

he really doesn't deserve to be in the same sentence as Corey Dickerson. There's talk that the Brewers might not pick up his $11.5 million option, which has a $2 million buyout. If he's available for $10 million, that's a no brainer as he can hold a corner OF spot or 1B until 2 OFs and Morales are ready.

Quote
The Brewers have an $11.5MM option on Canha that comes with a $2MM buyout. It’s a $9.5MM decision that figures to be borderline for a small-market Milwaukee club that has a penchant for taking the cautious route with regard to option decisions. It’s a reasonable sum in a vacuum, as Canha has performed well. He’s hitting .264/.360/.406 in 445 plate appearances, including a stellar .303/.394/.459 over 36 games since a deadline trade that sent from the Mets to the Brew Crew.

Even in his mid-30s, Canha is a good offensive player. He draws plenty of walks and has cut his strikeout rate to a career-low 16% this year. He doesn’t have prototypical power for a corner outfielder/first baseman, but he’s adept at getting on base. If Milwaukee decided not to commit the $9.5MM themselves, Canha could probably find something similar on the open market.

He might be the only outfielder we should pursue.

So, I'm guessing the Skrull who stole Patrick Corbin's identity after 2019 somehow has been killed and the real Patrick Corbin was returned to us about a week ago.

But how does he do when he's not facing us?

.360 OBP for the year. Essentially, he's peak Eaton, and we wouldn't have to give up 3 MLB pitchers for him.

Past 3 years, Canha's 20th among 221  qualified hitters in OBP. I say, "Let us grow old together" before Crews and Wood kick you to the curb.

It's the Nats, but do you send Young and have Millas go if the throw goes through? Nah . . .

Why swing at the first pitch, CJ? Why not give Young a chance to steal second?
