Just can't believe we have gone from the high of the Cubs winning the World Series to this in so little time.

So, so, saddened.

Quote:
Rizzo, who had been one of Espinosa?s biggest supporters since he helped draft him out of Long Beach State in 2008, continued to praise the 29-year-old infielder, who hit 92 homers and played stellar defense for the Nationals since his debut in September 2010, but hit only .226 while striking out in 28 percent of his career at-bats.

?He is what he is,? Rizzo said. ?He?s a good major league player that?s got power, speed. Good defensive player. Plays every day. Played hard. Gave it 100 percent every time out there. I have no beef or problem with Danny Espinosa. Never had, and still consider him a good player that gave everything he had every time he played.?

They apparently had plans to replace Espinosa whether or not they got Eaton, and it wasn't just the aborted McCutchen deal, either. The Nationals talked to Texas about Jurickson Profar, but the Rangers wanted Joe Ross.

Clearly not the sentimental type, Espinosa expressed few warm feelings for an organization that toggled him between shortstop and second base for most of his tenure ? except for 2015, when he played five different positions in a super-utility role ? and where something always seemed to be holding him back.

He can gripe all he wants to, but the fact remains....The guy whiffs every 3rd AB and is a career Mendoza Line hitter. Buh-bye.

Quote:
Espinosa?s glaring weakness: a career 3.77-to-1 strikeout to walk ratio, fueled by an NL-high 189 strikeouts in 2012 and 174 strikeouts in 601 plate appearances last season. On a new team that places a heavy emphasis on contact, Espinosa is making adjustments to lower that rate.

?We?ve already addressed it,? Angels hitting coach Dave Hansen said. ?It?s something he wants to get better at. He knows that?s the difference, because if he already has the pop, what?s not allowing him to use the pop consistently? That?s usually discipline around the plate.?

Hansen is working with Espinosa to refine his pre-pitch movements and path through the ball and to gain a better understanding of what pitches, in what zones, he can better handle.

?He?s trimmed down some of that swing,? Hansen said. ?It was a lot more violent than it is now.?
