O'Neill had great numbers in Memphis last year at a younger age and no one gave a [expletive]. What makes Randy different to the Cards org?

In fact Tyler, at 23, was a 170 wRC+ in Memphis last year.

Randy, at 24, is 150 wRC+.

I would be more than fine with Randy taking Fowler's spot if his foot is bad. O'Neill staying on for now and when Ozuna is back.


I wanted O'Neill to start most of the season in RF this year along with a Martinez trade and make Fowler or Bader the #4 OF before this year. Tyler will be a good player, independent of Randy Arozarena. I was just pointing out that Randy has had a good year and also brings some game to the table.

Especially when you include the fact that Memphis is one of the worst hitting parks in the PCL.

Is there a wind factor? A 319 ft wall seems like it'd make it an easier one. Shorter fence than some of the teams they play...

The three year stats from MLB indicate that AutoZone suppresses runs by about 20%, HRs by about 5% (the short porch maybe had an effect there), and hits by about 10%.

it's like the astros minute maid park (which is 315 to LF)...minute maid has the tall wall/crawford boxes in LF and autozone park has a tall LF wall section like that (15 feet 8 inches high in autozone; crawford boxes are 19 ft)

Good info.

So basically never trust desert and Rocky Mountain numbers on paper.

Randy's splits are a bit encouraging: https://www.baseball-reference.com/regi ... &year=2019
