    Eh, they aren't hitting like they did last year with RISP. Baseball is unexplainable at times and that is why it is a great sport. Who would have thought the Marlins would have a better record than...

    Yep, that is the roster move. Adams to the DL, Taveras to the show.

    How good has Pat Neshek been this year.

    Funny tidbit, he is listed as a switch hitter, which is fairly odd for a pitcher, but he has never had a major league plate appearance, a combination of...

    Agreed 100%. I rank the save over the win as the worst stat simply for the fact that it actually created a position (closer) and now managers cater to that stat. You also see managers do this a bit...

    He isn't their best reliever right now and shouldn't be closing; same case as Boggs last year. Matheny is stuck in the notion that only the anointed closer can close, or the anointed setup man can...

    I am not bothered by you not agreeing with me. I am bothered by someone telling me my opinion isn't valid without any data or evidence to back it up. You seem to be just as bothered that we don't...

    I have no idea why Matheny keeps handing him the ball in the 8th or Rosenthall the ball in the 9th for that matter. Reminds me of the cluster of Mitchell Boggs last year where he kept running him...

    No, it doesn't. That is your opinion of his opinion, which comes no where close to proving anything. What's interesting about this discussion is you ask for people's opinion on a matter, then tell...

    So using and admitting steroid use doesn't ruin his legacy, but apologizing for it does? I'm not following you here, we tend to look favorably on people that apologize for their crimes.

    I am not following what you are trying to say. All I said was the reason he apologized was so he could coach. I don't see how wanting to coach ruins someones legacy or where you are getting that...

    You could make the argument that the Cardinals alone have had 3 pitchers better during that span.

    Cueto - 3.35 FIP, 3.54 xFIP, 3.61 SIERA
    Wainwright - 2.78, 3.02, 3.18
    Garcia - 3.26, 3.33, 3.46...

    I suppose the statement could of been more precise. I thought it went without saying that committing a crime wasn't okay.

    Edit: As an addendum to the above however, it isn't baseball's...

    Okay, you were incorrect. It was a general comment.

    Neshek should get the job. Rosenthal has been a mess all year, today's game was just a microcosm of his season. Motte will need some lower leverage situations so start with before he would be ready...

    Then why did you feel the need to return it in the first place? It wasn't directed at you nor did I even quote you.

    Velocity isn't off that much, 96.4 last year, 95.8 this year. His control is the big difference and the big issue right now.

    Edit: fixed velocities...had it right the first time.
