    He hit .360 in the Korean league.

    Former MLB Felix Pie hit .337 and Eric Thames hit .341 in the same league.

    It's Kang not Hang. ;)

    Is it really the same core though? The only starting position player from the 2010 team that is still around is Posey. (Sandoval was a reserve on the 2010 team - Uribe started every game at 3B)

    The Royals were generally thought to have "lost" the Wil Myers for James Shields/Wade Davis trade, but if they win the WS, I wonder if that thinking will change.

    Well, they made good contact and didn't swing at balls (and sometimes not strikes either), so they were patient at the plate, maybe to a fault sometimes.

    They were among the lowest in the league...

    O-Swing% = Swings at pitches outside the zone / pitches outside the zone

    The Yankees generally did not swing at pitches that weren't strikes. They ranked #5 behind only the A's, Rays, Mets, and...

    So Tomas will get more than Abreu and this guy will get more than Tomas. That's the trend, right?

    The bubble has to burst at some point.

    By the way, the O's will make a QO to Nelson Cruz and they won't pick up the option on Nick Markakis, who will become a free agent.

    Well, I cut them some slack because most of those guys have never tasted the post season before, and most of them have never received a lot of national media attention. It's no surprise they say...

    The time off is the only negative for a team sweeping the CS. The 07 Rockies swept the NLCS but the Red Sox-Indians went 7 games in the ALCS that year, so the teams had much different lay offs. I...

    No, they lost a game to the Rockies in the NLDS and lost 2 to the Indians in the WS. They swept the Reds in the NLCS.

    I was being sarcastic. When his guys go 3 for 30, like they did last night, it's not his fault, of course.

    I just find it amusing that every so-called expert goes through this analysis of playoff...

    Not all teams have the same positions and some guys occupy more than one. Theo Epstein is "President, Baseball Operations" for the Cubs, for example.

    The Yankees have a "President," who is...

    I think you could be right on this. Not that long ago, the league was full of offense-oriented SS (Jeter, Garciaparra, A-Rod, Tejada, Michael Young, etc.). Those guys seem to have been mostly...

    Unless Cash can swing a deal for someone like Castro, I'm thinking Drew on a 1 year prove it deal (5M?) would be the way to go. It's almost mathematically impossible for Drew to be as bad as he was...

    For some reason, I thought Alexei Ramirez was a lot younger than he is. He's 33. He could be a stop gap, but he's not the future.

    1000x NO on Tulowitzki. Wrong side of 30 (barely), often hurt, he hits 50 points higher at Coors, and he's under contract from now until the end of time.

    Yes, I was going to say make him the QO just to discourage other teams from signing him, then offer him 3/30 with an option or 4/40. It's possible that he prefers to play for 1/15 on the QO, but...
