    I sincerely hope he is on the roster because management feels he is going to contribute not because he needs to face ML pitching. The time to use the major league roster to develop players is over,...

    I think everyone likes his approach at the plate but he is brutal defensively. He gets slow jumps, takes bad routes and has an uncanny ability to have balls clank off his glove when he is on the run.

    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...

    Theo has always talked about the blending of new school and old school philosophies. Maddon wasn't hired because of his knowledge of sabermetrics, he was hired because of his leadership and the...

    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...

    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...

    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.
