Surprising news I hadn't heard- Cadyn Grenier has voluntarily retired. I'll be updating other former beavs stats as more minor league teams get underway soon.
Hope it is not true. Best SS in the last 20 years for us. My first thought in reading this was the financial impact of saying no to a 800k MLB signing bonus in 2015 to come to Oregon State. When he eventually signed with the O's the signing bonus was 1.8 million. He also got the experience of winning 112 college games in two seasons and will wear a championship ring for the rest of his life. Not bad, hope he has no regrets.
I can't imagine he ever would.

The Conforto - Giants thing not looking too bright.
Almost 1/5 of the season played and MC has sunk to his lowest OPS of 2023, or of his career (excluding the first few games this season) at .652...and he has a slight (-) WAR. He went 'hat trick' last night.
His OPS in his better seasons he was as high as .939 OPS.
Tough to come back from missing a season, at age 30.
