2020 Review Gio Gonzalez Yasmani Grandal Xander Bogaerts

After being beaten without much of a challenge by Boston, you went out and stole their shortstop, so props to you for that. This stolen shortstop is one of the most talented in the league, and provides a grand upgrade over the previous Brewers six hole man in Orlando Arcia. This man up the middle stopped almost everything in his path, but didn’t get much defensive help from guys like Travis Shaw and Jesus Aguilar who brought in only .898 of their fielding chances. The defensive faultiness proved seemingly harmless up until the postseason, when in the NLCS against Atlanta Nick Markakis laid down a bunt allowing Ozzie Albies to score all the way from third on a defensive miscue. Still an impressive season, there is lots of room to improve in the final season of your contract. Let’s get after it in the 2021 offseason!

Eddie Hardiman

Hi my name is Eddie Hardiman, I am currently a senior at St. John’s Prep High School. I cover the Athletics, Red Sox, and Brewers. I have always been a Red Sox fan growing up just north of Boston, but with Moneyball being my all time favorite movie and my good friend being from Wisconsin, the two other teams have quickly grown on me the last few years. Outside of writing I am a left handed pitcher with a mean 2 seamer. Shoutout velocity doesn’t matter crew. I have never had a writing job before, so I am thrilled to be working at DD. My favorite stat is that Greg Maddux faced 20,421 batters during his career and only 310 saw a 3-0 count. 177 of those were intentional walks. One fun fact about me is that I will beat anyone in Madden or MLB the show as I when I’m not playing baseball, I really am playing baseball. My twitter handle is @eddieh427 , so don’t be afraid to be my 155th (impressive right) follower.
