One Year Ago
One year ago today Vladimir Guerrero Jr. played his first MLB game.
We waited and waited for that day. Vlad went 1 for 4 with a double in the ninth. He was replaced for a pinch-runner (Alen Hanson) and Hanson scored on Brandon Drury’s walk-off home run.
Vlad also made two plays at third base.
He ground out in each of his first two at bats. In his third at bat he hit a fly ball which we all though was going out. But no.

I see in Kate’s recap she has Stroman (+.412 WPA), Drury (.323), Sogard (.144) and Giles (.139), but not Vlad who had a .127 WPA. Bad Kate.
