    Fun fact: Jeff Baker has one more win than Scott Baker does as a member of the Chicago Cubs.

    32 isn't death. He's under team control. He can play all 3 spots. And he hits lefties.

    Might as well keep both.

    He was. Got a decent bonus, too. He wasn't poorly regarded. But yes, he was released from his contract and signed an MiLB deal with Oakland about 3 days prior to the Samadrjiza trade (he actually...

    There you go.

    Just wasn't expecting anything but what we've been getting out of the bargain bin players recently. There just wasn't a ton of hope there.

    I wasn't comping. I said that. It was a cautionary tale, is all, of a college senior bashing low-A ball and that until Zagunis is at age appropriate levels, that it's kind of just "meh". Chad...

    I wish I could believe that was the cause of most of his issues. But most of his numbers appear normal. His LD% is good. His HR/FB% is not too far off from last year. He's not striking out too...

    I've been absolutely shocked. I laughed the second we signed him. Laughed when I saw him called up. Laughed when I saw his name in the lineup every night. Hell, I think I was still laughing when...

    Washington's offense should be quite good. I think we're underselling them. They've got a great 1-2 punch in Jackson/Garcon (don't kid ourselves). They've got one of the better TE's in Reed...

    I've been under the impression of this very same thing (although I still highly wonder about Coghlan, but he's got plenty of time to ramp up the sample size). Those three start to make a solid bench...

    Which was mentioned in my post. Twice, in that I made direct mention of that, and that it wasn't a direct comparison.

    Maybe I missed it at the time (I was on vacation when it happened, it would appear), and honestly, it's pretty minor, but did anyone notice we cut Zeke Devoss loose and he ended up in Oakland? I...

    Pretty good start. However, it should be mentioned he is playing against the lowest form of competition outside of Rookie ball, which is probably lower competition than he was used to. Not to...

    That's there. Go under splits and then advanced. Like....3rd set of stats.

    Maybe I misunderstood what you're looking for.

    Watch'a looking for exactly?

    Also bibs, Fangraphs has it.

    Also, the answer to most statistical questions is: Fangraphs.
  18. Sticky: Valbuena is just having a really bad month. ...

    Valbuena is just having a really bad month. We're talking .180 BABIP. Very odd line, actually: .167/.222/.333 (mostly the 222/333 thing).
  19. Sticky: I just don't trust Morrow in the rotation for any...

    I just don't trust Morrow in the rotation for any sort of duration. He has 16 starts in two calender years. Year before that he only made 21 starts and had 120 IP. You have to go back to 2011 to...

    I never blame an OF'er for losing a ball in the lights (that's what looked like happened). That **** just happens.

    Which is good by me, considering outside of Alcantara, that void was completely empty.

    To a degree. He had a longer track record than Tanaka. CJ Wilson who basically only had 2 years starting got 5 years (granted, the money was low). I think that's what will happen with Cueto. He's...
  24. Sticky: Considering we've seen multiple contracts at that...

    Considering we've seen multiple contracts at that length for SP, I think it's naive to believe teams won't. Tanaka, Kershaw, Verlander, Greinke, Yu Darvish, Cole Hamels, etc, etc, etc....they've all...

    I fully disagree. By all means, it seems like Bryant, Baez and Soler will be added to the team immediately. Hendricks is already showing he's an MLB arm. We'll project to have a good bullpen with...
