Roster Update tomorrow: Please make Marcus Semien a 2B

SDS

Can we stop being reluctant to switch positions just to prevent him from going Diamond? Semien is a second baseman now, period.

His defense and arm is already criminally underrated and SDS for whatever reason just doesn’t want him to go Diamond even though he deserves it

SDS

He is a mediocre player who has had a hot start. End of discussion.

he was top 3 in MVP and he's top 5 in position player WAR, needs to be diamond and look at the stats, at the very least he needs to be the correction position

This is your 100th thread about Semien, Kieran. We know you have a lot of his cards and we also understand your agenda behind this. Takes less offense to get a bump to diamond at 2B compared to SS.

Do you agree that LS cards should display their correct position?

You do realize you’re contradicting yourself? You keep calling in his 3rd place finish as MVP last year, where he played every game at SS, and in 2019 played 161 games at SS, he’s played only 53 of his last 274 games at 2B, for a whopping total of 19.34% of games in last 3 years as a 2B. Just because you want something, doesn’t mean it HAS to happen.

No I’m not contradicting myself. LS cards play their current position but have some small stat adjustments based on the previous couple years, it’s not that hard to understand

No, they simply add a secondary if necessary (like Freeman in 17). Semien's primary position is still SS, even if the Blue Jays play him somewhere else for the time being.

No he’s actually a primary 2B now, with a SS secondary

So with your logic, Kris Bryant should be LF with every other position secondary? He’s played the most games (17) there, so regardless of the 638 career games at 3B, this season only matters.

Btw, Semien has 781 career games at SS.

SDS

@savagesteve74 said in Roster Update tomorrow: Please make Marcus Semien a 2B:

Kris Bryant has 122 innings at 3B this year and 104 in LF.

Marcus Semien has 451 innings at 2B and 43 at SS.

That's not a good comparison.

Ya idk what's with all their takes today, he's one of the top position players for WAR

Has there ever been precedent to change a players position mid-season??

If anyone's got MLB 20 booted up, check to see what Vlad Jr. was last year? If I recall, he was a 3B, which prior to last season was his primary position and he never played 3B last year ... just curious.

Yes, if they are for the most part playing one position, SDS usually will go out and change it

SDS

Just make him 2B and adjust his ratings accordingly so he is still a 83-84.

Well, just checked the MLB20 Marketplace and sure enough, Vlad is 3B. So maybe "usually", but clearly they didn't last year with Vlad, even though he played exactly 0 games at 3B.
