    He was worth roughly $37-38M last year.

    Taking inflation into account, he needs roughly 48-50 WAR over the life of the contract for it to equal his value. That is less than 4 WAR/yr, barring...
  2. No, Dan Lozano.

    No, Dan Lozano.

    Yet you said you wanted to give it to the guy with the most WAR... Dee Gordon didn't fully earn that either.

    FIP doesn't work for every pitcher though and Miller is one of those. His ERA has consistently been lower than his FIP.

    It's a team's job to win games. A pitcher's job is to prevent the other team from scoring. An AL pitcher has no role in producing runs and NL pitchers contribute very little to run production. A...

    That is why no one is claiming he is a 132 wRC+ hitter. Of course it was unsustainable, I'm not sure what you are even arguing. We aren't looking at individual seasons, but a longer stretch where...

    His FIP numbers were going to improve just by the fact of changing leagues.
  8. Poll: I think he meant they should be included in the...

    I think he meant they should be included in the poll. The O's and Jays have almost performed identically offensively thus far.
  9. Poll: Your sample range is just as arbitrary. He...

    Your sample range is just as arbitrary. He probably never worked on his hitting in Kansas City, expecting anyone to hit after that long of stretch is asking the impossible. Ideally, you want to...

    Doesn't hurt to overachieve against your division rivals.

    I am not even anti-DH, I am opposed to removing it from the AL.
  12. Poll: It was a direct response to a poor reason to have...

    It was a direct response to a poor reason to have a DH. It wasn't my argument, it was Icehawk's. Most 40+ guys aren't "really good hitters" and are shadows of their former selfs. Who said anything...
  13. Poll: There seems to be a lot that you don't understand...

    There seems to be a lot that you don't understand about the DH argument. Pitchers that hit are a detriment to their team. Good thing both teams play by the same rules though and have the same...
  14. Poll: Yeah, I get all that, always have. The season...

    Yeah, I get all that, always have. The season average was meant to show you how small of a difference it is over the year and not entirely "neutering" the lineup. Yes, obviously a spot in the...

    Are those all IBB where the pitcher bats or is that all IBB to number 8 hitters regardless of who is batting behind him?
  16. Poll: It's really difficult to know what you are trying...

    It's really difficult to know what you are trying to say when you speak in "hyperbole." No one is arguing that the pitcher batting reduces the run producing ability of an NL lineup versus having a...
  17. Poll: No one is arguing that pitchers can hit. I don't...

    No one is arguing that pitchers can hit. I don't understand why you continue to put in the effort over and over when no one has said otherwise.

    I say 10.
  19. Poll: Come on man, if literally no one understood the...

    Come on man, if literally no one understood the argument that you were trying to make, then it is a bit foolish to blame everyone else. You never thought for a second that you didn't communicate it...

    We also said streets, inner cities do have streets. Most of the pick-up football games that I played as a kid were played in the street. Playing catch is directly transferable, it is actually the...

    My brother and I would play whiffle ball home run derby in our back yard with just the two of us. If I was really bored I would just toss the ball up to my self and hit it.
  22. Poll: Ah, I see. Get proved wrong, it then becomes...

    Ah, I see. Get proved wrong, it then becomes hyperbole. Too many people are afraid to admit when they are wrong it seems. You should actually read people's responses as it would of clued you in on...
  23. Poll: I think your misuse of the word neuter is what...

    I think your misuse of the word neuter is what has thrown us all off. Obviously we weren't thinking you were using the definition that means to sterilize an animal. Neuter also means neutral. You...

    I think you are overstating the requirements to play baseball quite a bit. They used to play stickball on inner city streets. All you needed was an old broom handle and a tennis ball to play. I...

    Then why isn't football similarly affected if it costs more than baseball?

    Not sure why upkeep of a field is an expense a player has. There are plenty of public fields in my area that are free...
