Not exactly news, but not really worhty of a new thread either. Just wanted to point out that Joseph Daniel Votto is a special ballplayer.

Joey Votto has 6,563 career plate appearances.

He has never popped out to the catcher, pitcher, or first basemen.


He has 7 popups total since 2010.

I would really hate having to root for this guy though. It would be a moral dilemma.

That's a pretty cool stat. But I would think there are a lot of players who never popped out to the pitcher in their career as pitchers generally don't catch fly balls. The same is a little bit true with first basemen as unless they don't have to move to catch it, the 2B is probably going to catch a fly ball in that area.

I don't think there are a lot of players who pop out, to anyone, no more than once per season.

I thought Moustakas did it several times last year with the Brewers...

Stearns probably had no interest in getting a C because the Brewers need a C. It makes much more sense to trade for 3B when it's not needed, and then move the other 3B to 2B, then trade for a 2B, but since the 3B is now at 2B, then the new 2B goes to SS

The last player to lead MLB (among qualified hitters) in lowest infield fly/flyball rate besides Votto Was Yelich in 2015 and 2014.

1b usually are the ones getting the foul popups on that side, unless they are pretty deep down the line.

Seeing Wil Middlebrooks retiring...makes me thankful we have legit players now instead of roster fillers we had for decades.

You can leave your Brewer fandom badge at the door, take a long walk, and really think that one over.

Seems to me that adding great players to the Brewers roster is something that Brewers fans should want so I don’t quite follow your post here.

He means Machado is a turd, and he likely joins the majority of Brewer fans in not wanting him on the team. Fortunately, Stearns is a smart GM, and knows Machado would be embraced in Milwaukee about as well as a wet fart.

Machado = Punk.

Could he help us win, yes.

Could I live with myself rooting for him, NO.

I'm with rickh150 and Joey Meyer Bombs. No thank you.

Can add me to that list. His skill set is special but he is a player I don't think our clubhouse needs. One of the top reasons last year was so enjoyable was because of the mixture of guys we had. I don't want Machado in that mess and I don't think the Brewers would either.

He's no worse than Braun, I don't care if he's a punk as long as he helps us win a WS

I don’t think there are any players left from the time Braun held his infamous press conference. While some fans (me included) have issues with him, I doubt anyone in the current clubhouse has an issue with him.

Pretty much my thoughts, and I think calling someone less of a fan because they think Machado’s talent on the team would be good is pretty stupid.

Interesting read about the Drake. Coming from a frequent Drake basher, it makes you remember the human element a bit.

[ho hum] [rolling eyes]

Difference of opinion, simple as that.

I'd rather win a WS with guys I like, guys I want to root for, over idiot punks like Machado.

Did someone call someone less of a fan based on wanting Machado?

I missed that...

Literally, in post #29 above.
