Trade Review: One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Probable Trash Edition

LOOGATDIS cutie patootie…..

THE TRADE:

s

The Point Loma X-Rayz trade [Low Minors] SS Ozzie Albies and RF David Peralta to Rojo’s Resurgence for 3B/RF Hernan Perez and SP Steven Wright.

THE X-RAYZ RETURN:

s

3B/RF Hernan Perez – 26 year old CAME OUTTA NOWHERE type guy for the Milwaukee Brewers. .302 OBP, 18 doubles, 3 triples, 13 HRs, 50 Rs, 56 RBIs, 34 SBs across 404 ABs in 2016. Again this came outta nowhere. So much so that the Brewers went out and got a starting 3B in the offseason, leaving Perez currently without a spot to play. Will function as a “super utility” for the Brewers in 2017 (aka spotty playing time) and if the numbers regress eeeeven a little bit (the OBP isn’t great to begin with) that PT can all but evaporate and he can become some sort of pinch runner or something. So PLAYING TIME ISSUES one might say.

s

SP Steven Wright – 32.5 year old Red Sawx knuckle baller, BET YOU THOUGHT HE WAS YOUNGER CUZ I KINDA DID. Never did a goddamned thing until last season, when he made the All Star team and threw 4 goddamned complete games (13-6, 3.33 ERA [3.77 FIP], 127 Ks in 156.2 IP [7.30 K/9], 15 QS, 4 CGs). Seems to have locked up a rotation spot towards the back end there in Boston, and who fucking really knows if he will be good again? A 5.06 2nd half ERA (42.2 IP) suggests maybe he won’t and good fuck Boston.

THE RESURGENCE RETURN:

s

SS Ozzie Albies – HERE IS A THING I wrote about Albies like a month ago, because I doubt much has changed:

Atlanta Braves 2nd ranked prospect SS/2B Ozzie Albies. Don’t let the #2 ranking there fool you, as Albies would be the Braves top-ranked prospect if not for SS Dansby Swanson. And it is the presence of SS Dansby Swanson that probably leads to a position change for Albies, with a potential promotion to play second base in ATL as early as this season. Albies is the 11th best prospect in all of baseball according to Baseball America (#10 according to MLB.com), and in typical X-Rayz fashion represents a significant speed threat because WHAT FUCKING ELSE DID YOU EXPECT. Ozzie struggled a bit across 222 ABs in AAA last year but was far more comfortable in AA, stealing 21 bases with a .391 OBP across 330 ABs. If he can display that comfort in AAA to start this season and continue to play strong defense at second, he will be up as soon as the Braves get tired of trotting out old man Brandon Phillips. As such, the Oz man represents the Low Minors X-Ray Resurger most likely to see time in the majors in 2017, and before long he could be just another X-Ray like the ONLY RR player frustrating opponents with 5+ SB weeks. Unless Goldy keeps up his craziness.

s

RF David Peralta – 29.6 year old DBacks TRIPLES MACHINE.  Also gets injured a lot, which is why he isn’t still on my team. .371 OBP, 26 doubles, 10 triples, 17 HRs, 61 Rs, 78 RBIs, 9 SBs in a breakout 2015. Followed that up by only playing 48 games last year due to aforementioned injuries. Hits too many ground balls not enough fly balls to really threaten 20 HRs consistently, but hits enough line drives to hit a shit ton of triples in that triples boosting home park of his (24 triples in past 3 seasons, 16 at home).

RETURN SEAN LIKES MORE:

s

ROJO’S RESURGENCE.  There isn’t much to discuss in this trade, but I would say WHEN HEALTHY Peralta is the best player to change hands because I do not believe in Hernan Perez very much at all (playing time issues). There’s also the chance that Peralta can never get his health in check, but that’s okay STILL THE BEST PLAYER IN THE DEAL.  But anyways yea the the best DYNASTY PIECE in this deal went to Rojo’s Resurgence in Ozzie Albies. Of all the players in this deal Albies is likely the only one that might one day sting to have lost, so Rojo’s Resurgence takes the coveted “side Sean likes more” crown here. I have already spent too many words on this and some of them were copy and pasted.
