    A low BABIP doesn't automatically indicate "luck". Extreme ground-ball pitchers can post seemingly unsustainable BABIP because they have the ability to induce poor contact. Poor contact equals lots...

    He'll be in fall instructional league, then they are looking to send him to Australia for winter ball.

    He's gotten some BS calls on strikes out of the zone (Gose 3rd strike looking, Lind strike two in that last at-bat for example), but he's pretty much painted the outside all night long. When you can...

    The guy is pitching well and is hitting his spots...who gives a **** what his AAA ERA is? He's starting this game for a reason. Look at that at-bat against Bautista literally right now: 3 strikes...

    No, you can't. Guys that low in the minors don't get hype just because they throw hard. The ones we have that you are referring to (Labourt, Tirado, etc.) are hyped because they have secondary...

    Sure, but if we take Giolito with the first pick there is a more-than-real chance that we would have passed up Stroman with the second pick in order to take someone who would have signed for...

    His average is 97 and 97.1 for the two classifications of fastballs that PitchFX identifies for him.

    Its called the biggest jump in the minors (A+ to AA) and a small sample size. He had 0 walks today in 6.2 innings. Nobody said he was a finished product ready to dominate the MLB level.

    Rowdy Tellez 4 for 5 with a HR, 2B, and BB. On fire the past ~20 games.

    Richard Urena 3 for 5 with a 2B and a BB. Average up to .329. Nobody expected him to hit this well.

    Nothing against him, just an observation on a player that we were very interested in who I was surprised got the money he ended up getting from the Mariners. When I saw $2 million I assumed they...

    Rowdy had 26 strikeouts in 124 at bats, with 15 walks. That is a solid K-rate and a good BB/K split, which at least signals that he wasn't completely over-matched at the plate. The small-sample...

    Pompey's "start" was only an 11 game sample, and even though his slash line wasn't good he was actually posting a respectable K rate. Besides, he was a much bigger project (especially physically)...

    What exactly is the difference? Beane has picked up a lot of guys who turned out to suck with the A's just as much as they did with whatever team he got them from. He's got a built-in advantage in...

    The A's management can say whatever they want. There is no one in that front-office or in Chicago's front-office that seriously believes that Straily is Strasburg. A guy that isn't topping 90mph is...

    Seriously? Oakland has the best record in baseball, won 96 games last year, and 94 the year before that. The reality is that they are way ahead of us, which is why they made this trade: they are...

    Straily's velocity is down big time, about 3 mph since 2012. Any comparison to Strasburg is laughable. He is throwing 88 mph right now. He's not as good as either Stroman or Hutchison, and never...
