[Pete] Rose will serve FOX as a guest analyst for the MLB on FOX pregame show on FOX and FOX Sports 1 and will also appear on “MLB Whiparound,” “America’s Pregame” and “FOX Sports Live” on FOX Sports 1…
FOX officials say they are hiring Rose for his on-air presence and that he will make for compelling television regardless of how one views his controversial past.
The network’s move comes at a time when Rose, baseball’s all-time hits leader with 4,256, has ...
[A.J.] Ellis has ranked among the worst framers (catchers who get fewer strike calls than they should as measured by, again, Pitch f/x) in the majors the past few seasons. That put him in an uncomfortable situation this past winter with the Dodgers’ front office now in the hands of a coterie of highly sophisticated, analytically inclined decision-makers who believe strongly in the value of the pitch-framing metrics.
“I’ll be honest – I was motivated by the realization that that ...
Do dead centaurs bounce?
In other all-time HR list news, Trout passes Drew.
Although I play Dynasty League Baseball now, I still think the same way when I watch a good (or bad) defensive play.
The ejection was not warranted.
He’s poetry at the plate.
Will Colon move to the AL to DH when his pitching days are over? He’s clearly a winner at the plate.
Bartolo Colon’s teams are 11-1 whenever he collects a hit. They’re an unblemished 6-0 when he drives in a run. Nobody’s perfect. But Colon’s teams are close to perfect whenever he puts on a batting clinic, even if that clinic has been closed most of the time.
Everyone was in a tizzy!!!
There was no hypothetical man in the bleachers with binoculars causing controversy in the White Sox game against the Tigers on Friday at Comerica Park.
It was a hypothetical challenge that had everyone in a tizzy after a 2-1 Sox loss to the Tigers.
He has 2,849 hits in the majors and is closing in on 3,000. He probably needs another season to do it, but Suzuki is exceptionally fit, and motivated. Asked how badly he wants to reach 3,000, he responded this way:
“That question is really similar to ‘Do you want to get a hit this at-bat?’ or ‘Do you want to go to the World Series?’ ” said Suzuki, who is 5 for 21 this season. “You want to get a hit every time you get up there, and everybody would love to go to the World Series. ...
Jon Heyman covers a bunch of different things.
If he’s physically ready to play, I would think his agent would be pushing to have him activated. If he is, it looks like the Angels need to either activate him or release him.
The Kris Bryant 0-4 Memorial OMNICHATTER
It sounds like the draft is a jumble.
Apparently, Roberto Perez can catch the ball.
The job of sabermetricians is done.
This unconventional strategy is emblematic of the cutting edge of modern, in-game sabermetrics. With every team from the small-market Rays to the moneyed Dodgers now employing a host of analysts, all the obviously beneficial tactical techniques are already in use. All that remains are the scraps. So even as the tactics have become unconventional, the margins have become thin and the advantages minute. For clever front offices like the Rays, negotiating the ...
Bryant went hitless with three k’s in his first game. He did make some nice plays in the field and cured cancer during infield warm-ups in the 5th inning.
When it comes to producing MLB stars and Hall of Famers, in particular, some states have a leg up. So just which of the best ball player-producing states could claim the best fantasy lineups of all time?
Well done, Mariners.

Longoria is also the franchise leader in HR. Braun and Wright need 21 to catch Yount and Strawberry.
Here are some realistic expectations.
I will surely watch the game. Just so I don’t miss it, which inning will he walk on water?
Bring on the DH!
Leading off…..Roberts…..John Roberts….
For the first time in four decades, the U.S. Supreme Court will have an opportunity to reconsider baseball’s notorious exemption from antitrust law. On Wednesday, the city of San Jose, California filed an appeal with the nation’s highest court, asking it to overturn professional baseball’s nearly century-old immunity from the Sherman Antitrust Act.
The appeal is the latest step in the litigation surrounding the Oakland A’s proposed move to San ...
How much is the taxpayer on the hook for in this deal?
Don’t expect the new $135 million spring training complex for the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros to be a carbon copy of Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter.
Rafael Soriano is available.
