    Or at least change the save to only include 2 runs or less. Your worst reliever should be able to close out 3-run leads.

    Isn't this about the time last year that Mujica hit a wall? MM rides his closers way too much.

    Eh, he won't get fired. If the season started today, they would be hosting the wild card game (which includes their #2 starter and best player missing a good part of the season). Managers don't get...

    The ones that bother me are the bat flips on balls that don't clear the fence. Granted they do look like idiots when that happens, so maybe that works itself out.

    The 7th best offense should score the 7th most runs. The fact that they are 14th indicates they have not been stringing hits together. They were crazy lucky last year, not so much this year.

    Stanton is a right fielder though. Might as well send Taveras to Miami if you are trading for Stanton.

    The only case that comes to mind is grounding in to a double play. Every other case it is always better to put the ball in to play.

    I never said anything about team average.

    The lack of runs scored has more to do with bad luck than offensive performance.

    Closers routinely pitch the 9th inning of tied games at home. There wouldn't have been a save op once it gets to that point. You use your closer when you need him, not when a pointless stat...

    Inconsistent is probably more accurate. They have the 7th best offense in the NL, so not terrible. Two of their everyday players are rookies, Molina is out, Holliday is looking like he is showing...

    The only way they are going to stop it from happening is for umpires to eject the pitcher immediately and stop with giving out warnings. For example, Kershaw hitting Holliday was about as...

    I don't know that Craig's value was ever going to back up without sacrificing the playing time of Adams or Taveras or an injury.

    Holliday has never played the infield in the majors, but first isn't overly demanding. He was drafted as a third baseman though, so he isn't a complete stranger to ground balls, probably extremely...

    My guess is most are making assumptions based on his performance in home run derbies and not on his actual numbers. Among everyday outfielders, he is fairly average offensively. 29 out of 56 in...

    I would guess they want to keep giving Grichuk regular at bats, he will be up Sept 1 for sure though.

    I think you are overvaluing Cespedes quite a bit. He was the A's worst hitting outfielder this year. Who is going to hit for them? Donaldson, Moss, Norris, Crisp, Jaso...

    It was a vesting option that kicked in if he had TJS during the contract which he did. He either pitches for the Cardinals next year or retires.

    They gave up two players that didn't have a lot of long term value to them to improve their rotation this year and next. Sounds like text book win in my book. Craig was going to start being an...

    My opinion is the Cards haven't lost much if anything on the defensive side switching from Kozma to Peralta at short.

    Well, they get Lackey cheap next year and Kelly's days in the rotation were numbered anyway. They had more starters than spots going in to next year, had to start moving someone. Most of the other...
