    And this is the issue with looking strictly at analytics. While I'm sure there's a number that explains anything, its extremely difficult to get a...

    Gotta be looking for a sweep against the Pirates too. They aren't trying. The effort the put up against the Cubs was atrocious.

    I thought going into the weekend that if we could take 2/3 or better from the Cards that we'd win the division. Still 3 games back which is tough,...

    I guess I'd argue that the shift has been a bigger contribution to offensive struggles than better pitching has been. And to me, the change in...

    No doubt there's a time and place for focusing on extra base hits, but as a whole the homerun/strikeout approach has decreased runs. Analytics not...

    But the ball was changed this year, so looking at last season's statistics is irrelevant. ERA numbers across the league are up near half a run a game...

    Pitcher may be throwing harder, but I think we can all agree the breaking stuff isn't the same anymore. The ball is different. As a whole pitching is...

    You can win while playing under stress and you can lose playing loose. The two aren't mutually exclusive. I'd argue the Patriots aren't a loose group...

    Braun has an OPS over 1.000 since the All-Star break. He definitely should be in the middle of the order right now. He's been far better than Moose....

    I don't see why we'd look to trade Braun unless we're trying to cut payroll. We need his bat. He's been basically as good offensively as Yelich...

    I don't see Betances getting that much. I think he's much more likely to fetch around $9-10M. Anything more than that and you're right, its a hard...

    Burnes has a decent curveball. His pitching splits are okay. He throws 57% fastballs, 31% sliders, 8% curveballs, and 4% changeups. While his...
