I like Ruggiano and I'm glad he's sticking around.

3.7 WAR in 800 ABsdon't know where you're getting that number at all. Also, he is alright, had a good year the first year with us but its pretty clear that it was a fluke considering is ops that year was about 200 points higher than his career ops and he's on the wrong side of 30 now.

 

he is pretty much a replacement player as evidence by his .1 war last year and i think getting someone who actually plays first would be more beneficial to the team.

 

Please don't try to argue him as a good player. That one year was the only year of his career with over a .300 OBP and a .400 slugging.

I heard that the Orioles are interest in both Morrison and Ruggiano.

Orioles are interested in LoMo and one of our outfielders. Speculation is that it's Ruggiano.

Fangraphs.

 

Have you seen the players on our team? Even the .1 (whichever site you used) is higher than a lot of them.

 

Ruggiano > Jones/Francisco.

Ruggiano > Jones/Francisco.Thats why you use free agency. Just because he is better than the current guys we have at 1st, which isn't saying much, means he is a good option.

But what other option is there to pair with Jones? It's either Ruggiano or Lucas. I'd rather have Ruggiano as he's more proven and has some power (although not in marlins park). Defensively it's probably a wash once Ruggiano learns the position

I kind of like Ruggiano a little bit, but he runs very hot and cold. I can't see to get his 4 for 58 July out of my mind, but he did finish well. I'm not saying that should trade him....just that they should listen. I would be listening about almost everyone on the roster right now except Stanton, Yelich, Saltalamacchia, Fernandez and Cishek.
