    Well the Blue Jays and the Cubs are on his no trade clause. That kind of narrows it down a bit.

    I have a feeling BJ will bounce back in 2015! I can see .245/.310/.400 18-20 HRs with above avg. Defence. 20+ stolen bases!

    Before you ask, no, I have not been smoking!

    I think we know how much Bethancourt is going to hit. He's not going to hit much! He's young but has a long t rack record in the minors of sucking with the bat.

    Someone explain to me why I shouldn't love Kyle Kubitza? Is it the high SO rate? Was last year's numbers fluke? For a guy with a great eye at the plate, he strikes out a ton! Why is that?

    I take it John Hart is very quite at the winter meetings today. I was hoping there would be good discussions on here.

    Let's knock it off. We're all on the same team here!

    I like this for Oakland. Good return for a one year rental. Plus, don't bet against Beene if you can help it, this guy knows what he's doing. But I see alot of Fangraph empowered GMs on PSD aren't...

    I read earlier the braves were scrambling to get their executives to quickly evaluate the Rangers farm before meeting the Rangers tonight to discuss Gattis!

    It's about to go down!

    Great post! I completely agree with you.

    If Cuddyer is healthy, he's worth that contract and more. The price for hitting is really high right now.

    As an MBA, you examine things from a business/market value prespective. yes, baseball is business (I think we can agree on that).

    My point is very simple: In a free, self correcting market, you...

    Actually top 5 last year and your reluctance to acknowledge it doesn't change the fact! But with that logic, every single team has black hole in every position because the previous year's production...

    That statement is equivalent to me saying something as stupid as The Blue Jays hitting looks bad for next year! If I was dumb enough to make such statement, demonstrating my lack of knowledge of the...

    Thank you for chiming in and bringing logic to this debate. I personally value nothing more than the opinion of a Cubs fan in matters relating to player evaluation and building a winning a team in a...

    WAR tells you How much more valuable a certain player is compare to a theoretical player who does not exist. So when I look at the WAR of one player from one team and compare it to the WAR of another...

    The Braves have a advanced stats guru in Copallela, the assistant GM, but it's not the amateur stats used to calculate WAR. it's obvious that GMs don't value WAR. Look at who they're signing to big...
