THE TRADE:

The Astoria Isotopes trade 2B/3B/SS Javier Baez to the Toms River Titans for 2B Starlin Castro.

THE ISOTOPES RETURN:

s

2B Starlin Castro – 27 year old MAN he feels older, but he is just a 27 year old 2B for the Yankees. .300 OBP, 29 2Bs, 1 3B, 21 HRs, 63 Rs, 70 RBIs, 4 SBs across 577 ABs in 2016. Off to a solid start in ’17 with 3 HRs through these first 15 games. LET THIS BE A REMINDER, IT HAS ONLY BEEN ABOUT 15 GAMES, I don’t care what your guy’s OBP is. WHERE WAS I? Starlin Castro. His cheeks are too fat for my liking but he could threaten low 20s HRs once again in 2017. Fin.

THE TITANS RETURN:

s

2B/3B/SS Javier Baez – 24 year old guy that Joe Maddon is having a helluva time finding ABs for year after year after goddamned year (2014 he was terrible so that was understandable….also I don’t think Maddon was there yet). .314 OBP, 19 2Bs, 1 3B, 14 HRs, 50 Rs, 59 RBIs, 12 SBs across 421 ABs in 2016. THE TALENT. IS THERE. The path to playing time is often not, evidenced by the fact that he has about 20 less ABs than yanno MOST fantasy starter types. If he gets a path to playing time and puts it all together he can be a real gem, as evidenced by kooky ESPN’s kooky 18 HRs 18 SBs projection. Their kookiness is sometimes rooted in loose #analysis.

RETURN SEAN LIKES MORE:

I dunno I GUESS the ‘Topes? Javy Baez could be very good but he is just having a helluva time finding ABs at the moment, if the Titans get a timely Zobrist injury or something this might work out nicely but NOBODY SHOULD EVER WISH ILL WILL UPON BENJAMIN ZOBRIST. The ‘Topes win for getting the (fat fuckfaced) guy with guaranteed ABs.
