    What on earth re: Correia is particularly suited to Target Field (which btw had an above average HR Factor last year)? Why is anything about his stuff likely to play significantly better than DIPS...

    Worley is 86th in the league in SIERA among qualified pitchers to lead the Twins. (I assume you're interested in what's likely going forward, not what SSS BABIP and HR/FB numbers have posted.)

    What other people said re: K%. Every time I see someone cite K/9 or BB/9 I cry inside.

    My rant: an R squared of .05 (for BABIP) FTW? Really? (Not to mention, McCracken actually found an R of .153...

    I haven't even been on a Twins forum in months. I came here to see why Sano and Rosario weren't playing, hoping they'd been moved semi-aggressively to New Britain. (Of course not, I have learned.)...

    He had 6 awful starts to begin the year vs. 11 starts in his good run, so really, he was good more than he was awful.

    The thing is, Pitch F/X data proves beyond any doubt that his stuff was...

    So GUESSING that a better offer won't materialize after a guy whose stuff per pitch f/x is unequivocally, demonstrably, objectively TOTALLY DIFFERENT than it was in 2011 and early 2012 (and actually...

    Best decision I ever made: deciding to commit to watching/following the Pirates as much as I did the Twins in 2008 when the Neal Huntington regime was settling in. It's just SO damn nice cheering for...

    He's not hurt, dude.

    The pitch f/x numbers from his last start show that his velo was still at it's post-TJ peak and his sinker had, in fact, EPIC levels of sink. In fact, it may have been TOO...

    diehard, Presley's rehabbing. He's their starting LF and lead off man with Tabata down.

    From the perspective of a Pirates fan, this is bordering on ignorant. FYI. Span as a semi-long-term corner? Um... Starling Marte, Robbie Grossman, and oh by the way Alex Presley except for April and...

    very good news.

    I wouldn't say every such argument is "simplistic" (unless it's really merely "THEY'RE RICH AND THEY'RE CHEAP!"), although "ignores real world situations" is absolutely accurate.

    No, it isn't. Last year his K/AB as a LHB was 27.5%.

    (If you meant something else, apologies, but his awful K/AB ratio was the point/raison d'etre of my post. Certainly he is squaring up a bit...

    Law is in deep, deep speculation land (and not at all representative of industry consensus) when he says Appel is the best bet to go 1.1. You never really know how a draft is going to shape up until...

    At first this read like laughable apologetics, but further statements by the OP make me think it's just a matter of emphasis (notwithstanding factual inaccuracies re: real world ownership).

    Re: Hicks's splits "evening out".

    The batted ball profiles are still quite different RH v. LH. He just doesn't square the ball up much from the left [edit for brainfart] side, and most of his...
