Yeah, trading a dynamic young player like TA should not be under consideration for a rebuilding team.

Tim Anderson has finally reached enough plate appearance to qualify for the AL batting title. TA is currently tied with DJ LeMahieu for the lead with .331.

Anderson moves into the lead with today's 2 hits at .332 — no game for NYY so LeMahieu remains at .331. Go TA7!

Glad he got up to the level to qualify. He’s made a lot of strides as a player, and he is going to provide so much value with this contract if he continues at this level.

Reality check: Twenty-five errors. Twelve of them throwing errors.

Not at all. I love the guy. If he just cut into half those errors think about the player he'd be. He's had issues with throws all season it seems as if there is no improvement. Is he not getting instruction?

...and if I may be so bold if issues are not recognized and raised how do you expect improvement?

I don't think that anything the fans say or talk about on WSI influences the way the team progresses at all.

It’s really bizarre that this would need to be said.

What's really bizarre is that you'd both read in your own narratives to support your statements. No one implied that the organization looks for advice from this board. What I implied is that all season long TA has had issues with throwing the ball. I would expect that:


A) The organization would communicate the issue to the player.
B) Someone covering the team would ask the manager about this issue.
