    For what it's worth, among the 30 MLB teams the Houston Astros are a close fourth from the top in homeruns and third from the bottom in wins.

    Posted 08/16/2014 03:35:43 EDT

    In response to pumpsie-green's comment: Yes, he had a very good start. In 2012 prior to the ASB he had 185 PAs and had a BA/OPS of .298/.873. Very very good. Then the ML pitchers figured him out, and more »

    This thread has several unflattering references to Will Middlebrooks so I offered only one of many comps to help assess Middlebrook' value going forward. I suspect the Red Sox keep giving Middlebrooks more »

    Folks on this forum cared about Alex Liddi when I first made the comp in 2012.

    Only Baltimore hit more homeruns than Seattle last year, but the Mariners still managed to win only 71 games.


    This season the Mariners rank 18th in homeruns but are on pace for 87-88 wins.
