    It's not a small sample size anymore. MLB players have contact rates stabilize between 50-100ish PAs.

    I was once told to move one row back to where my seat was 50 minutes before game time. So, Chase Field has issues.

    If Great American Ballpark has a human being dressed as a bobcat running around the dugout and aisles during actual play, then yes, it's Great American Ballpark.

    Chase Field, home of the game-blocking mascot, t-shirt toss, and screeching female "game-host."

    Castro has the tendency to land his foot in an open stance still. That is, he's hitting the ball with his hips already slightly open. He actually said this was a problem for him dating back to 2014's...

    A homer is not a batted ball that is in play.

    Minor league BABIP is like a movie trailer. It looks interesting, but once you actually see the movie, it's nothing special.

    This isn't a bad return for Castillo. He's actually averaging 93.8 mph for his 4seam this year and 93.25 mph for his sinker. Sure, his 4seam velocity is down about 1.8-2 mph, but he's still throwing...

    Samardzija has been terrible this year, almost unbelievably bad. He completely changed his repertoire. He started throwing way more fastballs and slashed his splitter usage in half. It's almost as if...

    Line drives don't mean anything in these samples. Unless you want to wait 5+ years to even cross a 50% stabilizing point, it's not a good stat to use.

    Hopefully Rizzo maintains this approach. He did the same thing last year. Then once June hit, he swung at outside the zone pitches 36ish% of the time.

    There's no way the Cubs lose a game where they did that to another team's pitching.

    Good find.

    It makes sense that Castro is swinging at more pitches up and in. He's clearly trying to pull the ball more, evident by all the data that guy noted. I trust the Cubs staff that they...

    Doogs and I were briefly discussing Castro. Pitchers are attacking him much differently than last year. In 2014, he was thrown 48 pitches up and inside (4% of BB zone profile). Now in 2015, he has...

    They are similar in that they both have an above average slider. Both their curves are between the 40-50th percentile for whiffs. If I had to pick? I prefer Turner because he's had moderate success...

    Wood should not be starting. He shouldn't be on the team even.

    Hopefully one day Grimm gets stretched out.

    Rizzo had some problems with hitting in general, regardless if he was at Petco or not. With Yonder Alonso coming up, they made the deal that spread the most value out, and matched up well nicely with...

    Looks like Baez is seeing the ball a little better. He cut down his swing % to 43%, and he's making 68% contact. It's not much to get excited about, but it's at least a trend to keep watching.

    As...

    Every pitch from T Wood is basically a variation of a fastball. He's throwing a touch over 80% 4seams, cutters, and 2seams.
