“One of the 20-25 greatest hitters to ever step in the box. When he played the outfield, he looked like a man trying to remember where he left his keys.”
“The HOF is populated by cheaters, gamblers, racists, drunks, and abusers of women. It’s also filled with kind, decent, generous men. One’s view on where Schilling lands on this character spectrum is irrelevant when assessing his qualifications as a player.”

Sorry if this was posted already, I missed it if it was.
It may not hurt to ask but it can sometimes be funny.
What a dumb award.
Myriad O’s thoughts: Trumbo’s QO; Peterson’s departure; coaching vacancies; awards talk - BaltimoreBaseball.com
He’s one of the most interesting free agents out there. Is anyone really going to pay him full value on his 2016 season? I doubt it but sometimes teams surprise.
Staumont at #1 in Baseball America?
MLB Pipeline ranks him 10th. The biggest issue is clearly his control.
Here’s what they had to say about him.
I’m just waiting for the MLB Network to introduce a streaming option which isn’t tied to cable television to cut the cord. Right now it’s the only channel keeping me with cable TV.
Seattle Star, November 14, 1916:
In fairness to Schaefer, the “chance” that he got with the 1916 Yankees consisted of ...Read More...
So, let me get this straight, 10 players received qualifying offers this year. 10. So Kenny thinks it’s much better to screw over all international free agents in order to help 10 players? That doesn’t seem like a nice big-picture solution. Wouldn’t it be better for the players to concede on another issue to get this changed?
I would have voted for Fulmer.
Carlos Beltrán Reaches a Bunch of Milestones, Chris Archer and James Shields Just Miss Losing 20, Chase Utley Goes the Entire Season Without Grounding into a Double Play and Other Statistical Tidbits of 2016
Beltrán’s strong hitting in 2016 was key for the veteran as achieving 400 home runs, 2,500 hits, 1,500 RBI, and 1,500 runs will help him garner votes with the more traditional/old school Hall of Fame electorate who favor round milestones over analytical value. Moreover, at season’s end, Beltrán sat at an impressive 70.4 Wins Above Replacement and 36.4 Wins Above Average for his career, so he will undoubtedly draw strong support from younger, more sabermetrically-inclined voters as well. ...Read More...
A team can’t sign expensive free agents every year?
I’d rather have the Sox spend money locking up their young core than pick up a pricey new DH.
Interesting week of award announcement coming. Will Mike Trout win the AL MVP?
I can’t see how a deal doesn’t get done. I’m sure the deal will screw over international players.

The Undefeated: Marannis: No Gentle Saint—Roberto Clemente Was a Fierce Critic of Both Baseball and American Society
“Whether he finally survived that combat, and spent the remainder of his days in some Hotel des Invalides, I do not know; but I thought that his industry would not be worth much thereafter.“
While I’m excited about Walden’s return to the Atlanta organization, the last place he had considerable success, I urge caution. Shoulder strains and injuries can be bad news, and they often portend the beginning of the end of a career. While none of us want that for Jordan, it can’t be ruled out ...Read More...
I’m a big believer in Bellinger.
GMs need to know what the the luxury tax threshold is going to be. This, Cubs stuff, and a bunch of tidbits.

You might want that Lexus but how about this used Yugo instead?

Truth. I can’t help but think baseball will get some negative unintended consequences from the change.
Curving pitchers into quality hurlers.
