    also Bob Tewksbury to the staff as a mental skills coordinator. Dr. Ken will never be replaced, but very glad they hired another

    This is good. I think this was one of the problems last year.

    Schwarbs settled for $3.9 million & Monty for $3.0 million. I'm not sure how I feel about Schwarbino and Monty. I hope that they can do better in 2019 than they did in 2018.

    Yeah. My thoughts exactly.

    Worse, they are giving Addie 3.4 million and he's sitting out a quarter of the season.

    I can’t remember exactly what the details were, I’ll try to find it again, but apparently Schwarber had deceptively and surprisingly good metrics last year. The sort of things Theo and company lean on. I know it didn’t seem that way anecdotally, especially toward the end.

    I’m still hopeful his best days are ahead.

    Chatwood makes over $10 mil. Darvish over $20 mil. And you guys are complaining about Schwarber making $4 mil? Schwarber absolutely earned that money. Unlike the others I mentioned.

    And... so anyway, I think this may have some of the metrics on Schwarbs. This was written at the end of August. Weighted on base avg, wins above replacement etc. was on target. Trouble against lefties is his Achilles heel.

    He’s good in the clubhouse too. hoping for a strong year from him.
