Defense Matters, Just ask Juan Lagares

Juan Lagares has been spectacular this year in the outfield, plain and simple. I would just like to take this moment to acknowledge that our center fielder currently ranks 14th in the majors and 7th in the National League in wins above replacement (WAR).

Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez: Buyers Beware!

Not for nothing, but I couldn’t help noticing how both Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki are now on the DL and there is a strong possibility that each could be done for the season.
