    The headline I saw said "Ted Lilly charged with" and I think I'm actually disappointed it was not murder. It would have made us like Miss Cleo and we would have thrown the greatest back-patting...

    It's a really interesting thought to customize your stadium each year for the team you built. If you have a bunch of right handed power pull hitters, you shorten up the left field wall. Move the...

    I absolutely love the SP depth that we have and continue to build. Never again will we have to watch someone like Casey Coleman get 17 starts or abuse a pitcher by sending them back and forth from...

    I can see the reasoning behind Wright being the odd man out; he doesn't have the upside, luck was on his side in 2013, etc. But what I can't understand is why he wasn't dealt weeks ago when it...

    Where are you guys getting the pitch framing data? It would be interesting if missed strikes happen in higher leverage situation. ie umpires are less likely to call what they feel is a borderline...

    He was fun to watch, especially when on a hot streak. Big bat, tons of top spin and could single-handedly win games for you.

    Part of Wood's struggles can be attributed to our brutal defense in the outfield. He may have been trying to strike out more hitters and ended up getting his mechanics a bit out of whack but he...

    A couple of things:
    1) You could easily make the argument that 1969-1992 numbers better apply to today's game than the more recent range that includes the Steroids Era.

    2) You are looking at it...

    The rebuild is obviously taking longer than anyone hoped but I wouldn't worry too much about it at this point. Mainly because if things were really bad within the organization, you would see people...

    When we all have heart attacks by the time we are 40, just remember how you thought it was a waste to spend money on a closer. :-)

    I will say this, I don't think that I have ever seen someone that came up an infielder look as comfortable in CF as he does.

    Ha, I typically do this as well but not this year. You just have to look at the projected lineup and realize how few runs we are going to score. Last year we totaled fewest amount of runs since...

    So let me get this straight, when Steve Stone mentions the Cubs, it's sour grapes but it's perfectly ok to bash Dempster for exercising a contractual right until the end of time?

    I find it interesting that Alou has the same career OPS+ as Sosa.

    If anyone has a shot at getting unanimously voted in, it's Maddux.

    Hart was going to be able to get more money from an AL team with an open DH spot. He can probably still hit but who knows if he could even handle 1B at this point much less LF.
