I hope so much that they do turn aggressive to the remaining free agent pitchers. The two trades were so positive because they not only showed recognition that they were at a crisis level with...
I believe that longevity needs to play into this decision which is why I was happy to see Dave Goltz so high on your list. Knoblauch, Tapani, and Brunansky because of their World Series wins...
Alexi had a WAR of 4.2 - maybe we'll miss him more than we think. This is a nice history. I feel bad that we need to wait 88 years for the next one.
I no sooner post an update and Seth posts his relievers of month for May, and Blake is number 6! Seth makes the same point regarding the control issue, but also notes the 10 strikeouts in 11 innings.
Almost 6 innings in the past two weeks, and only one earned run, dropping his ERA to an excellent 2.50. He struck out 4 in those six innings which is a couple less than optimal, but only walked two...
Been a quiet week for Blake. He has thrown 2 and a third in his last two outings without giving up a run and striking out 3. That strikeout rate remains good. More to come as it happens.
Since the April 27 blowup, Blake Martin has made three appearances totalling 3 and one third innings. In those outings he has not given up a run, struck out 5, and allowed just one hit. Two walks...

As tempting as it is to just ignore his performance tonight it is worth noting because it shows the odd nature of baseball stats. A walk, hit and two earned runs in 1/3 of an inning and he was...
No slight correction allowed - you messed up your chance to make your point by leaving out the details. You're out of the lineup tonight.

I wanted to make sure that the pitch to contact theory was added, but a couple have already beat me to it. And I have no issues with Mauer and Morneau's contracts or toughness. I want to have some...

Mike wants wins makes the exact same point I would - if you don't take a chance on a strikeout pitcher because it may be risky then you will never have any. Based on where the current strategy for...
And Blake Martin - 2 strikeouts in 1 and a third. Another damn walk though.
