    Was Straw this bad in the minors as far as running, fielding, hitting, etc

    I think Altuves days of hitting .300+ every season are over.

    Yep.

    Look up, I threw an edit on that.

    How can a guy that fast not know how to bunt and slide? He'd hit .340 if all he did was hit ground balls.

    Why is Grienke out after only 84 pitches Dusty? Making $35 million in 2021

    He is definitely looking like a product of the trash can!

    I have no idea what they see in Straw. We must have someone, anyone, better in the minors we could replace him with.

    Feels like Springer got better reads in the outfield then straw or he played deeper because he had a canon of an arm

    Is it wrong of me that I thought Straw misplaced that?
