Gallo Diamond, Walsh Not?

SDS

Gallo gets +4 to reach Diamond. Walsh gets +0

Chapman gets -2 and gave up a Grand Slam to Walsh. But Walsh gets +0

SDS takes away 8 contact v L for Walsh, after he hits 3 HR against lefties in the last 8 days.

Walsh batting average, .282 HR 22

Gallo batting average, .239 HR 23

Just funny how...

SDS

Gallo has elite defense which helped him get diamond, can't just compare batting average and home runs

SDS

I could care less that Gallo went diamond but it's inexplicable that Peralta, Bichette, and Grisham received no upgrades. Peralta remained an 84 and Bitchette/Grisham 83's.

SDS is weird. Lol

I mean, they took 8 contact away from Walsh... leave the contact if the man hit 3 dingers off of lefties this past week. No? And Walsh plays an elite first base. Dude has a cannon.

I do think Walsh should be diamond, I'm just saying Gallo isn't a good 1 to 1 comparison given that he has diamond defense, he wouldn't be a diamond otherwise. First base defense isn't factored valued as much in ratings

SDS

Walsh got hosed.

SDS

while i tend to agree BUT gallo will throw anyone out from right field and has caught sport center lately.

I gotcha. They actually have Walsh's arm strength at 40... dude was signed as a 2 way player lol no arm though, i guess

SDS

Peralta got hosed. Just like not getting selected to the ASG. I guess it'd be hard to justify one team getting 3 SPs selected though (and Hader).

SDS

Reyes still bronze! Been with him since the start, but they are strategic with who gets updates and when to mold to the market. Need more integrity with the ratings.

Tin foil hat applied. I think there are way to many people sitting on thousands of his card for them to upgrade him to where he should be.

Likely, I only have one of him but just want to see his performance translated fairly. Not a huge deal, buuut sort of is bc they are very selective with their updates

SDS

Walsh plays a solid RF when needed too. His BA against lefties is about .180 though. Definitely should have gone up 1 to Diamond

Much like Devers should be easy Diamond. On pace for 44 HR and 140 RBI and stuck at 81. Doubles machine who had 201 hits in 2019, so great track record too.

And they appropriately bumped his power vs lefties up 10 points
To get a raise in contact we need to know how he did in all his other at bats vs lefties beyond those three HR's.

Looking at his stats for the last 14 days, he is batting .229.
Vs lefties for the year he is batting .178

Hard to argue that a player deserves an upgrade when they batted more than 50 points below their season avg during the time period in question. He is lucky he got the +10 to power vs lefties. Without that boost he probably gets downgraded.

SDS

Gallo is leading the league with bases on balls too by a pretty decent amount

SDS

Walsh is getting a TA3 card though.

SDS

Yeah but that TA will most likely be a 97+. A far cry from the 85 some of these guys deserve, especially Devers.

I never knew him to be such a good defender.
That eases my pain of him robbing a HR from me the other day!

Does contact not relate to batting average? Gallo's contact went up, yet he has a worse average? If those two aren't connected then so be it, but seems quite logical to me.
