    Bo Bichette needs some more love on this daily list. 3 hits last night. hitting 360 something on the year.

    • Bichette has been covered, without a doubt. He killed the PAG/APPA metric last year while in the GCL and earned a 2016 UTR OAS nod. He’s also made the HOD daily four times so far this season. However, it’s funny you should say that Miles because kids like Bichette are the reason Jim and I are exploring better a posting process for hitters. One that would be quicker for us during stat gathering, easier for readers to read and most importantly, expand the perimeters of our daily coverage. I set my daily criteria very high, yet back it down when I put together the OAS Hitters lists in the off-season. What gets lost in the daily shuffle are those hitters who produce at less than the daily criteria level, yet extremely high for the OAS level. Those are the hitters that the new process will vet.

      Thanks for the comment Miles and we hope you (continue to) enjoy our work.
