Better hitters than David Freese

Recommended Posts

Chuck, I can see why you removed the last part of the OP.

But is it not true that Salas is not worth Bourjos AND Grichuk? That is what the trade essentially became.


So Freese begins the season in an awful slump and you're already saying the trade sucks, Dipoto failed? 


Why don't you reserve judgement until either the end of the season or until Freese is out of the equation because he's replaced by someone else. Three weeks in it's too early to say Dipoto blew it on this trade. I wish we didn't have to give up Grichuk in the deal, but after his first couple appearances Salas has been tough out of the bullpen. Right now Bourjos isn't doing jack for the Cardinals and Grichuk is in AAA.

Among NL pitchers with at least 10 plate appearances, the following are all better (by wOBA):


Madison Bumgarner (0.3 offensive WAR, better than most of our team) 

Adam Wainwright

Mike Leake

Wade Miley

Jordan Lyles

Henderson Alvarez

Tom Koehler 

Gerrit Cole 

Johnny Cueto

Andrew Cashner

Cliff Lee


that's 11 out of 24 pitchers with 10PA or more.
