Game notes

While these games technically count as “playoffs”, the stats accumulated in them apply to the regular season. Don’t ask me why because I couldn’t begin to tell you. It’s stupid. I know it and you know it.

    Cedrola with a quick adjustment to AAA.
    I feel like Crook quietly had a pretty good year. Almost an 800 OPS overall, and since June 15th (sticky stuff crackdown) he OPS’d 900+
    Carlos Jorge with his 8th triple of the year.

    I thought Crook could be in jeopardy of an off season of leaving the organization as it just seemed is development had stalled but he has really turned it up a notch making for a tough decision going forward. One of the nicest kids you would ever want to meet I have always rooted for him.

    Jorge kid looks like a keeper as well.

      Crook certainly earned a nice paycheck next year, somewhere – whether it is with the Reds or someone else.

      He’s a tricky kid, in that he has a very good, long history, and still has the fight of a rebounding 23 year old. I can see him getting some ZmL time. Not a lot but some.

    I thought the stats in playoffs went to be reset but this a weird year as Mr Doug says…
    By the way, What would be the future of Crook next year? Is he a MiLB FA? He wasn’t in the radar of nobody until two months ago…

      To me, Crook has almost been the Moreta of 4th outfielders for over a year.

      I can’t be for certain that he is a free agent….. it’s possible, though unlikely, that he signed a 2-year deal last time around. I’d say the odds are about 99.5% that he’s a free agent after the season (he has already reached free agency in his career, so he’s signing new contracts after each season at this point).
