Ruggiano is going to hit 27 HR and OPS around .875 next year with 22 SBs... MARK IT.
He isn't going to play enough to put up those kinds of numbers.
He could platoon and make these kinds of numbers in Wrigley.
Pop up to short is a home run!
And the Marlins will make the playoffs.
I will miss his wife. Smokin hot.
He's definitely Got Bogus beat there
This trade seems to be a wash. Good luck Rug.
Alright this is just a stupid move. Trade a guy with tons of power in Ruggiano with a great work ethic and a fantastic outfielder for a first round bust. Ruggiano was also willing to help out at first base. This better clear money for a great third basemen because otherwise this is just a dumb f***ing move.
None of the 3B FAs are good though, which is the problem...unless you want an old and busted Kevin Youkilis.
I would take an old and busted Kevin Youkilis over an underwhelming Derek Dietrich.
Sadly that's true.
Ruggs wasn't much of anything. He had a power flash like once every 50 games.
Derek is young and has room to grow. I could see him hitting 20-25 HR's in his peak.
She's not bad looking. Why are you hating haha
Yeah that's very unlikely. He did hit 22 one year in Low A, but that's not a major accomplishment. Since then he hasn't shown that kind of power. One thing he hasn't done at the MLB level yet is hit for average. In the minors he was pretty consistently hitting .270 or above with a decent OBP.
I don't think he'd hit 20-25 next season. I meant during his best season.
I guess that's possible, but I'm not very convinced.
Huh? He hit 20 HR last season between the majors and Double-A in like less than 500 PA. He should absolutely be able to hit 20-25 HR at his peak. If he is a full time player next year it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect those HR numbers NOW.
No we saved $ 1 million, in this organization that could be the money for our 3rd baseman
