EVAN GATTIS NEWS

Evan Gattis grateful for manager A.J. Hinch's patience

Evan Gattis' early season struggles with the Houston Astros were well-documented. He took a while to get going with the bat - essentially the primary aspect of his skill set that made him an attractive trade target for Jeff Luhnow's front office. He has shown signs every so often of breaking out of that funk, however.  On Wednesday, Gattis turned a 1-1 tie into a 3-1 lead with a...

Will The Braves Rebound?

35 games into the season, the Atlanta Braves are 16-19. With the loss of Justin Upton, Jason Heyward, Evan Gattis, and Craig Kimbrel, this is a reasonable performance. The Braves have also had to deal with injuries. Mike Minor had surgery to this week and will be out for the season. Also, Chris Johnson and Kelly Johnson are both on the DL. Chris Johnson was hitting .279 before...

This Week in Razz, Week 6

As some of the regular readers on Saturday mornings might have noticed, there has been a trend of "don't panic" or "it's only April/May" or even "your mom". I'm here to finally break that trend. Maybe. We are now six scoring (almost!) periods into the books, which means, according to my calculations, that we have six weeks in the books. That's about the extent of my math skills,...

Studs Evan Gattis, HOU - 8-for-24, .333 5 HR, 13 RBIHe was a dud for the first three weeks of the season, but boy did he wake up in a big way. Gattis is still hitting below the Mendoza line on the season, but the power is back. It's probably not a coincidence that Houston's winning streak coincided with Gattis finally providing big power in the middle of the lineup.  Stephen Vogt...

Gattis Might Pips The Mariners

Yesterday, Evan Gattis went 2-for-4, 3 runs, 4 RBIs with his 5th and 6th homers, while hitting four homers in the last three days. After the game, Gattis likened this streak to the five red lights in a row where the first car to stop had broken windshield wipers and Gattis had a squeegee. Adding, "Right now, I'm swinging the squeegee as good as ever. There was one guy, Non-Tall...

This Week In Razz…, Week 4

As has been the theme since day one of this series, I've been stressing the fact that you shouldn't panic. The fantasy season is still very young, (very fragile, like your mom, sure), but anything can happen in any amount of short time anywhere. SO META. For example, does anyone think they'd notice Evan Gattis going 12-for-73 in the month of June? Probably not, as the first month...

Chris Carter is whiffing at a lot of strikes

A lot has been made of Evan Gattis’ ineptness at the plate, but what about Chris Carter’s? Carter has always been labeled as a “hacker.” He’s notoriously known for being an all-or-nothing type player, meaning he either hits the ball a mile or doesn’t hit it at all. The Astros’ slugger had a breakout year in 2014, posting a career high 1.8 WAR, which would have been...

Rolling out the early-season MLB ‘jump to conclusions’ mat

Yes, it’s early. We’re just into the second week of the 2015 MLB season, and most teams have 155 games left to play. But after five months without meaningful baseball, it’s easy to react to what we’ve seen early on and form early impressions based on that. It takes a bit of time to reacquaint ourselves with baseball’s long marathon. Personally, I think it takes a little...
