Grizzly Adams did have a beard, and so does Adam LaRoche ($4,800), who’s hitting at an insane clip this month (.636 SLG and .348 ISO). He’s also a notorious slow-starter, but his lifetime OPS in August is .903, which is well higher than any of those other stupid months. Hold up, we’re not done here. I got stats on stats on stats. LaRoche also owns a .417 wOBA and .225 ISO at...

I’m Getting Quite Sick And Tired Of Adam LaRoche

Yes, this is a petulant post. But I’m tired of Adam LaRoche magically recovering from batting slumps against the Mets. LaRoche is an underrated Mets killer.

But in recent history, LaRoche has gotten healthy...
