No reason to be upset with a 4-2 week. But there’s still a couple Yankees to send to the sun.
Wade may have scored the winning run today but he’s still not MLB caliber. Almost took Ford off for his heroics yesterday, but with Luke coming back I have no desire to watch him play pic.twitter.com/3sTJrBXazM
We could sit here all day listing my Wade hate tweets. I hated having him on the roster. Yes, he’s always been versatile defensively, fast, and handsome. But he couldn’t hit a lick. Well, I have to eat some serious crow, because Tyler Wade has actually been extremely good of late.
In the month of August, Wade is 15-34 with a 1.084 (!!!!) OPS, 9 runs scored, and 3 RBI. Sure, it’s a 16-game sample size. I’m not saying the guy’s gonna be the second coming of A-Rod.
But regardless, I’ve been waiting forever to see SOMETHING offensively from this guy. He’s a bench piece, I don’t expect him to light it up. Let’s look at his OPS+ by month. If you’re unaware, OPS+ compared your OPS to the league average. 100 is average, 90 is 10% below average, 110 10% above, etc.
