Moniak vs Marsh


Recommended Posts

I really liked Marsh's defense and Trout in CF seems to be done. 

If Moniak can hit and play a CO and we acquire a good defensive CF then I guess it's a good move, but seemed unnecessary to me unless Marsh wasn't a good clubhouse guy.

It's a lot more fun to imagine Moniak working out. If he hit well enough in ST to win a starting CF with Philli, then maybe there is some hope. 

 

Can we call him Moniak the Maniac if he pans out?

No

I hope this clears up any discussion about which player has a more likely chance to have a major league career. 

Burnnnnnn.  Stranger things have happened, but this is dismal. Losing a bunch of games for the rest of the season means a higher draft pick, so mission accomplished for the rest of the season by trading for Moniak?

Plot twist:

He did not win a job on the roster coming out of ST.  Matt Vierling did.

I don't like his chances of amounting to anything more than a good 4th/5th OFer, but even if that's he ever amounts to that would a more than adequate return for a pending FA with concerns about his being able to answer the bell despite being owed 7 mil for the remainder of the season.

He doesn't really need to amount to much to still be useful to this team.  That is maybe more of an indictment of the Angels than any real praise for him, but.... still counts.

Brandon Wood did well in the minors and couldn't hit worth beans when he got here.

Same with Marsh.

Brandon Wood comparisons when discussing any young player are the AngelsWin.com version of Godwin's Law.

Let's take it a step further...

Predicting the success or failure of any baseball player based on a different player's performance/statistics is dumb.  Very dumb.

Sooooo....

 

How do you extrapolate those stats into an MLB leading 36% strikeout rate...? (3% more than any other MLB player)...

Generic fringe major leaguer. Seems to have a quick bat, but it has to produce results that haven't yet appeared. 

Likely the prototypical platoon, defensive replacement, pinch hitter/runner bench guy. But with the season lost, might as well play him and hope he has some unfulfilled potential.
