    How is WPA calculated, I'm terrible with all the saber stats.

    No it doesn't. That would be the "high leverage" stat.

    Hes about as average as they get. His only value is in his velocity and yet no one seems to have trouble making contact when he cranks it up. If you can get a Pederson or a guy like Alfredo Silverio then you make the trade.

    Uh, yes it does. If you give up a game-winning hit, your WPA goes way down and that is a high leverage situation.

    Yes.

    Keep him. We are lacking in quality relief pitchers. Parnell should be even better this year.

    Even though we are in full re-build mode, you don't trade him unless blown away.

    You can gain or lose WPA in low leverage situations.

    I like Joc Pederson, but he is perhaps 3 years away from MLB ready. I wouldn't trade a pitcher like Parnell, who hits triple digits, coming off a very good season and just entering his prime, for Pederson alone. If I were Sandy, I'd ask for Dee Gordon along with Pederson, or no deal. It worked with d'Arnaud and Syndergaard.

    Dodgers would have to eat some of Ethier's contract to move him, and seeing as how the Mets have no OF, I would assume the tires at least get kicked on that. Having his bat in the order wouldn't hurt either. Probably would cost somewhere around 10 million a year.

    But seriously I see no fit
    Damn, you beat me to it. Just tell Magic Johnson that Parnell is the next Mariano Rivera.

    Might as well throw in Kemp while he's at it.

    Yes, but the gain and loss is substantially less

    That is pushing it. Parnell is not Dickey.

    Pederson would give us that high upside outfielder that should be ready mid-2014 or 2015. He'd be in AA next year so he's not too far away.

    The thing with Parnell is this, he spent most of his life being a thrower. And with a heater like his why not. Last year was the 1st time I saw him actually pitch. So while he is 28 and in the Majors for 5 seasons, he just learning how to pitch.

    Davidoff is a total idiot

    Fresh off his inane comments about R.A Dickey he backs that up with this bit of crap. check this out.

    PostPaul Abell/US Presswire
    baseball columnist Ken Davidoff tweeted his Hall of Fame ballot Wednesday. Getting the nod: Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Kenny Lofton, Edgar Martinez, Tim Raines, Curt Schilling, Alan Trammell and Larry Walker.

    Left off: Mike Piazza, in his first year of eligibility.

    Mike Piazza, now retired for five seasons, appears on the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time.


    The explanation did not include Davidoff alleging any improper performacing-enhancing-drug use by Piazza.

    Davidoff writes on his blog:

    If you watched Piazza play, you were captivated by him. Did anyone else hit those heat-seeking missiles like he did? You felt like all of his homers flew about a foot over the shortstop’s glove and then soared over the wall, breaking a car window in the process.

    He hit 427 home runs, with 396 of those as a catcher. More than any other catcher in baseball history.

    But again: The goal here isn’t to get caught up in images, or to hone in on any one number. It’s to look at the whole picture.

    If Piazza is on next year’s ballot -- I assume he’ll get the five percent of the votes necessary to carry him over -- then I absolutely would consider voting for him. He’s a very worthy candidate. On this clogged ballot, though, I don’t believe he’s one of the 10 best. LMFAO, What a moron.
