Hey guys, on Tim Anderson… I think a big reason why he stopped running in the 2nd half was he was coming off a high ankle sprain and didn’t want to reinjure it (no real reason to push). He can steal 30+ if healthy. As for his AVG, yes, it likely won’t be close to .335 again, but his expected batting AVG based on his contact was .294 (21st highest in MLB) so I don’t expect him to drop down to like .270 or anything.
