Just looking though the stats, the team looks to end the season as it began, as the anti-"three true outcomes" team. 15th in HRs, 15th in walks, 15th in strikeouts (or 1st in fewest Ks, if you will).

I honestly have no idea who Millas is. I guess he's played in a few games, but I cannot recall anything about him.

Defensive first catcher
pretty good O in the minors this year, too, after an awful 2022. FG has him in our top 10 (#9).

very athletic. A few of us have thought he could hold down another position, like 3rd or 2nd.

Other things I learned today:

1. The QUIKRETE Companies is headquartered in Atlanta.
2. The QUIKRETE Companies is the largest manufacturer of pre-blended, packaged concrete and cementitious products in North America.
3. Cementitious is apparently a word in English.
