THE TRADE:

s

The OceanGate Trout Fishing Club trade [Low Minors] CF Ronald Acuna to the Manchester MooniniteZ for 3B/SS Eduardo Nunez.

THE FISHING CLUB RETURN:

s

3B/SS Eduardo Nunez – 29.8 year old former Yank current Giant fresh off his BREAKOUT 2016 campaign. 6 year old CAME OUTTA NOWHERE type guy for the Milwaukee Brewers. .325 OBP, 24 doubles, 4 triples, 16 HRs, 73 Rs, 67 RBIs, 40 SBs across 553 ABs in 2016. A PLEASANT SURPRISE considering he had never done much of a damned thing in the past. Could very well lead off for the Giants against lefties, against righties could bat in the 2 hole or else god know where. AT&T just MURDERS HRs so that 16 will be hard to get to again, 40 SBs is hard to repeat in general BUT a spot near the top of the Giants order all year could boost scoring opportunities for the guy. Shoulder has been getting cortisone shots like every other fucking day all ST which is something for the OGTFC to keep an eye on.

THE MOONINITEZ RETURN:

s

[Low Minors] CF Ronald Acuna – 19 year old prospect for the Braves, most recently listed as their #6 ranked youngin’ by Baseball America (#67 overall BA, UNRANKED MLB.com, #31 Baseball Prospectus). 4 HRs and 14 SBs (caught 7 times cuz he is young and foolish) across 148 ABs for the Braves A affiliate last season (.387 OBP). Also foolish are THESE PROSPECT LISTS because by the end of the year he should be getting the Robles talk, the Braves already compare him to Andruw Jones.  Here here’s the fangraphs prospect tools thingie:

s

Signed: July 2nd Period, 2014 from Venezuela
Age 19 Height 6’0 Weight 180 Bat/Throw R/R
Tool Grades (Present/Future)
Hit Raw Power Game Power Run Fielding Throw
30/60 55/60 30/55 60/55 45/55 55/55

s

I mean the Braves already gave THEIR comparison but now I will give my own, since I think my point was to always pick dudes still in the majors and I do believe Andruw Jones hung up the cleats.  Major Leaguer Comparison: Curtis Granderson.

RETURN SEAN LIKES MORE:

s

MANCHESTER MOONINITEZ.  Because I root for my own interests, and WHO NEEDS Nunez his shoulder is hanging on by a thread and he will lose his SS eligibility next year and I just don’t need any more 1B/3B types on my roster. And Ron Acuna is the next Andruw Jones.
