He's an all star for the marlins at 3b considering he's mid .700 ops and hitting out of his mind with RISP right now. Arenado and Frazier should both technically be ahead of him though from a statistical perspective, but casey is actually 4th in OPS among NL 3b this year. I mean that is utterly shocking really. If he can keep this up, he's basically a lock for come back player of the year I would think.
Garrett Jones could easily win Comeback Player of the Year as well. I believe his OPS is actually higher, in the low .800 range.

Yeah but Casey went to Japan and hasn't been mlb relevant since like 2010, but we're still 100 games away from season's end and all that.

Also, If our doofus FO would actually start platooning Jones with Lucas like they should Jones would have a much higher OPS right now.

Tulo wins by a landslide if it ends today

old school guys look at BA, where he's is up by like .050. new school guys look at WAR, where he is up by a lot

Old school or new school I'd venture to say that batting average is important at the end of the season. Because at that point it's more than just an average, it's a permanent ratio of hits to at bats. It reflects impact, deserved or not (what I mean by that is... if something like BABIP is suggestive of a lower BA, it really doesn't matter).

I think my favorite case of this is Ricky Nolasco. All his peripherals suggested he was due for better performance. But when the season ends, he's still got shitty performance facts. And at the end of the season, fact is fact and there's no hiding it.

The issue there is that batting average isn't one of the better indications of performance.

True but I guess he's saying that it holds more weight as an entire season total as opposed to smaller sample sizes.

I voted online and at the stadium. Near the homeplate area just to the third base side, they have a table set up with ballots - if you sign up on their list and fill out a pack of 50 ballots and return them, you get 2 tickets to a future game. Got 2 tix for monday vs rays.

It would be a crime is Stanton is not starting the ASG.
