99 Words on Matt Joyce

By R.J. Anderson //

A few days ago, I defended Dan Johnson’s performance so far. With Matt Joyce, no defense is required. Joyce is nearing the 500 plate appearance mark in his career and he’s accumulated 2.5 WAR. A simple proportion followed by some multiplication and division shows that wins total prorated to 600 plate appearances nets a return over three wins. Taking Joyce’s plate appearances this season and prorating them over 600 nets over four wins.

I’ve had Joyce pegged as a three-to-four win player since the Rays acquired him. Nothing he’s done since has rejected that notion.

    Hey, just stopped in to say hi. Didn’t know you had this going on. Good for you.

    And I’m shocked you’d be standing behind Joyce.
