That’s what the Pirates thought they were getting when they drafted him.

I think he would be better than Gorkys Hernandez and as much as I like Sutton and Harrison they can’t play the outfield.

You don’t need to change a thing. You already provide a lot of info. for us to keep updated with…I would hate to see you get burned out and stop enjoying what you do!

For instance, this morn, I learned that Marte is hitting .333 at home but only .259 on the road.

That is something that can only be done by digging….give it a shot! It may become addicting, tho….lol

I think possibly displaying the day old OBP/SLG/wOBA/wRC would be more informative and possibly appreciated then posting the accurate to the day average of the player, or maybe even post both the updated average and the day old more informative stat(s) together.

It’s automatically updated in the box scores each night. I’d love to do OBP/SLG with that, but those aren’t updated until MILB.com updates. So I’d have to wait around each night to add those stats. Usually I try to expand on the basic stats in the game notes section. But I’m kind of limited by what MILB.com provides.
