Frankie Lindor Nerfed?

SDS

I know SDS does the 3 year average but anyone else feel Lindor should have more power vs. righties?

Xander has 70/80 power. Lindor is 76/67.
Lindors last 3 year HR totals... 32,38,33. Xander... 33,23,10

I also know power isn't based solely on HRs but XBHs as well. Lindor and Xander are nearly identical with 2Bs and Xander has a slight edge with Triples.

Why doesn't Lindors stats reflect his actual play IRL... My thoughts. They don't want him being a 90+. That is rare territory and SDS doesn't view Lindor like they do Trout, Arenado, and Belly and that's fine, but Lindor should be an 89 on par with Betts.

To add to my argument... Lindors speed and steal stats are a joke compared to a lot of other players in the game.

Yelich gets 75/75 speed and steal and fore someone who is on base more than Yeli only has a few more stolen bases in the last 3 years.

Lastly, as you can see by my avatar, I'm a biased fan, but stats are stats and the way I am seeing it... Lindor got nerfed.

SDS

I agree that SDS has underrated Lindor the last couple of years. And I am NOT an Indians fan, so there you go.

Also they mentioned that the speed rating is generated from a formula calculated by statcast. So they claim that they do not adjust speed ratings on their own, but rely on statcast technology. However the stealing ratings are created by SDS so yeah. Just thought I'd throw that out there

SDS

I like Lindor as much as the next guys but Betts should be rated higher than him. Betts should be rated higher than Bellinger too. IMO Betts is the second best overall baseball player next to Trout. Yelich, Bellinger, and Arenado are a Tier begins them and then Lindor is is the group after that

Meanwhile Kris Bryant has been a better hitter than Arenado for the past three years and over his career, yet he isn’t even an 85.

We all have our own problems buddy

SDS

Lindor’s speed is the most disrespectful thing I’ve seen. He may not steal at the rate he used to but he is not this slow.

I actually bought Bryant the other day after realizing his contact and power are almost identical to Arenado’s.

Yeah, he’s a steal for a gold.

SDS

I feel the same way about Mookie Betts speed, stealing and plate vision.

Well, Arenado does have the perk of Coors field.

.277 on the road wasn't much different to Bryant's. 285 tho. I'm guessing Bryant doesn't have the defensive range Nolan does and that's what dropped him to gold.

Bryant has a career 139 wRC+
Arenado has a career 120 wRC+

Over the last three years (17-19), Bryant has an average wRC+ of 136, while Arenado’s is 130.

Also, Arenado’s career home/road splits:
Home: .324 AVG, .615 SLG, .995 OPS, 130 wRC+
Road: .265 AVG, .476 SLG, .799 OPS, 109 wRC+

That’s quite the gap compared to Bryant’s career home/road splits:
Home: .280 AVG, .534 SLG, .921 OPS, 145 wRC+
Road: .289 AVG, .499 SLG, .881 OPS, 133 wRC+

Bryant also has more fWAR since 2015 than Arenado, despite playing through an injury for most of 2018.
