    The Brewers' guys are pretty good, too. Since its a small market most people don't get to hear them much but they do a good job of not being complete homers and remaining objective. The play by play...

    My favorite "Unprofessional Hawk moment" was when he was arguing that the WS should have had a triple play against the Cubs (when Pagan was on the time) and the play ended up with all three Cubs...

    Bingo. It seems like the Tony Gwynns of the sports world are the outliers. The Ryan Brauns and Richard Sherman's of the sports world can likely attribute at least some of their success to their...

    An article I read on The Hardball Times a few years back came to the conclusion that lineup protection exists but not in the traditionally expected way. Basically, the idea that pitchers groove more...

    Welp, Fowler's never played a Major League game at LF in his life so I'd say the former is pretty unlikely, regardless of the versatility he may have as a (defensively underwhelming) CF.

  7. I would have absolutely no problem with Gomes...

    The clubhouse leadership is probably the biggest allure. But he is a perfect platoon candidate for LF along with Coghlan.

    Coghlan v. RHP Career: .282/.346/.425, .771 OPS, .338 wOBP, 108 wRC+

    This game sucked since it was against the cardinals, but in the grand scheme of things it's not that big of a deal. I'd rather them finish horribly the rest of the way since the playoffs are...

    Kind of like Dan Uggla.

    He just had a chance with his eyes right, and he put up one of the worst offensive lines in MLB history.

    It's uncannily exactly what you'd expect given his recent performance before this year,...

    Maybe Bryant can play a better 3B than Baez can. I'm sure this FO knows what their doing and if that is how they position them, then it is more than likely the right call.[/QUOTE]

    Indeedy. Mine is probably

    1. Russell
    2. Bryant
    3. Baez
    4. Soler
    5. Mendy if he still counts

    Could easily have like 10 other combinations of that and no one would take major issue[/QUOTE]

    They only play for another 5 or 6 weeks then playoffs. My guess is he'll get a cup of coffee after that but start the year in triple A next year.

    Bold: That's not true. UZR doesn't take shifted plays into account at all. They ignore those plays for now.

    I haven't looked that much into it, but my guess is with all the shifting done these days, any defensive system available to the public isn't all that great anymore.
