Here’s to more good than bad this week!
Slow news day, but here’s a quick shout-out to Bobby Bradley from Zachary Rymer:
It’s fair to look at the Guardians lineup and see a major need for additional impact around Jose Ramirez and Franmil Reyes. However, that’s where Bradley might help. Making contact has been a consistent struggle for him, but it’s telling that he had about the same expected slugging percentage as Reyes when he did make contact in 2021. If he can do that more often, 30-plus homers is possible.
