Watching fans rend their garments and tear at their hair over a free agent signing it's easy to remember that this is a children's game. What else could possibly turn a bunch of adults into tantrum...
I meant that all the efforts of the combined team only gave them a net positive percentage of that much. Its silly because it's trying to assign probabilities to an action that essentially happens in...

Nishi is hitting 280 in the past 10 days. It would be kinda crazy to mess with an upswing right now. Let the fella get the hitting on, and see what another month can do for his confidence. A utility...

WPA is a silly stat. According to it, the Os were only .09 % likely to win the game where the starter took a no-hitter into the 8th based on their team's overall production.

It seems pretty likely to be Gray who goes out, released, replaced by Butera, so Doumit can become more regular in RF. I'd like to say Towles, but he has 3 hits in 24 PA. 1 Walk and one Sac. His 3...
The interesting thing so far is that they're hitting with one runner on.
3rd: .455 /.538/.455
The trouble so far has come with multiple runners on. 0...
I'll do it one further and say the team should go down one infielder, and bring up Towles, making Doumit the regular right fielder, and "third" catcher. He's got a quick bat, with obvious power. I'm...

No. Borjous' ball was not catchable. Willingham's mistake was in trying to catch it at all. If he just recognized it was over his head and played it off the wall, Borjous would have been held to a...

John Shipley also text-rolled his eyes at the Gardy quote saying Florimon was the best defender. I'm not sure that cat has real big league eye for defense. Dozier has to keep it up until the cutoff...
I think the twins should send him to the minors for 10 Days. He can fly in and pitch his starts, and spend the rest of the time with his family. Win-win. I'm sure the only reason Marquis would refuse...
It's gotta be Doumit, otherwise they're not using their roster to the best possible offensive output. Plouffe and Hughes have the potential to be big league bats, but Doumit is proven. He'll be out...
Yo CJ! I didn't say the bloggers only distilled info. Their blogs often do just that, essentially meaning that you are getting the mainstream coverage secondhand by coming here, in addition to the...
But you do consume the media secondhand. The bloggers distill it for you.
Accountability is such a stupid word. It doesn't mean anything. Sure it has a definition, but it's such a slippery one as to mean nothing. It's main function is to shift responsibility to someone...

So who's the backup shortstop? The starting 2B? What sense does it make to have 6 1Bs and 1 SS? Burroughs spot should go to someone who can play short. Unless they are comfortable with Luke and...
