  1. Discussion: New Statcast Defensive Metric: OAA (Outs Above Average) ó How Mets fared in 2019

    I might be interpreting this incorrectly, but it seems to give more credit to a fielder for catching a harder ball relative to factors like distance he has to cover and the difficulty of the ball hit...
  2. Wilpons to Sell Team (Post # 134, Team to be put up for auction)

    If Iím not mistaken, I believe Dolan has a unique and very long standing relationship with Glen Sather that dates back decades. It is probably why he allowed Sather to run the Rangers - and thatís...

    That numbers seems on the high side.

    The Mets were assessed at $2.3b by Forbes in mid 2019. Word is Cohen's offer was $2.6b for the team. SNY is estimated, on the high end, to be worth $1b. The...

    So what it doesn't seem to measure is effect of defensive positioning - which I suppose is hard to do.

    But the mark of a good fielder is not just how fast they can close ground, but also how well...

    Upgrading the defense and OL is probably the highest yield way to make this team an immediate winner.

    This draft is deep in athletic tackles. And Isaiah Simmons is a monster defensive talent youíd...

    He has to wear that thing to play? He's basically a DH. How will he have any lateral mobility with that?

    Heís not professional. He acts like a modern day diva. Itís bad enough coming from players. Itís completely unacceptable from a GM.

    NY Mets offseason

    I have no major problem with them choosing not to give Wheeler what Philly did. But stop being the team that trashes players on the way out. Itís small and Wilponish.

    Of course what I said is relevant. Wheeler did what lots of modern players do - take parting shots. GMs are supposed to be above the fray.

    They had to get out from under the luxury tax. Wasnít their penalty something like 50% if they did not?

    Seems like a pretty damn good move overall when you consider that.
