Alex Gordon is not nearly as terrible as I was expecting.

Mariners: https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/2018-zips-projections-seattle-mariners/

I get fascinated with some of these.  Zips hates Ryon Healy, like a lot of people who don't take a lot of walks.  Here are his 2016/17 numbers next to zips projections:

2016      305/337/524   283 plate appearances
2017      271/302/451   605 plate appearances
ZIPS      254/286/416   92 OPS+, below replacement level at -0.1 WAR

I'm a lowly toy salesman and not a talent evaluator, but believe he's a better player than that.  But not for the SIM Brewers in '18 sadly.

ZiPS dumped his BABIP this year, which is weird, because he's got a career .320+ BABIP...but ZiPS projects him at .299.  That's hugely changing his value.

Moving to Seattle could hurt a bit, but Oakland isn't exactly a hitter's paradise.  They may be right.  I hated how ZIPS felt about Wade Miley, always projecting him with a worse year than any he'd had in his career....  Turns out he turned into the guy it thought he was. 

But this one isn't helping me in 2018.
