I finished The Cardinal Way. I enjoyed the book and recommend it, especially to Cardinals fans and those interested in the workings of major league front offices. My only quibble with the book is its failure to fully unify the stories/chapters in the book. Don’t get me wrong; each chapter was interesting and worth reading. It’s just that, although you can see how Howard tried to tie everything together, he fell a little short in executing it.
Has anyone else finished the book? If so, what are ...Read More...
David Laurila with a bunch of tidbits in this week’s notes column.
I’m not sure I follow the Yankees plan for Chapman. Why have him ramp up for Spring Training?
Some odd lists from Nick Cafardo.
Looking over his comps I agree that he’ll need to exceed expectations and add more power to stick around at first. It will be fascinating to follow his progress.
If only he could hit a little more.
I haven’t verified every roster but it looks like every team’s Opening Day roster on one page.
The Indians may be the best defensive team in baseball.
Happy Mini Opening Day!

I’ve never been one to accept the broad sabermetric pronouncements. In this case, I’ve always kept my eye on spring training and when I notice someone with a great stat line, I wonder, “Why?” Is there something different? Did the pitcher learn a new pitch? Has a batter made some kind of discernible adjustment? If I can find something I’ll take a flyer on the player. If I can’t, I ignore it. Not every guy I’ve picked up has panned out, but enough of them did to make the effort worthwhile.
As you’re about to see, Angels warhorse Jered Weaver and outfielder/sun god Mike Trout leveraged the occasion of April Fool’s Day to hurtle staff ace Garrett Richards into a seeming broth of romantic tensions. The result was a palpably uncomfortable Richards and a pretend relationship shattered like commode dropped from space ...
How could they not love the game?
The proper valuation of players is key for turns like this one.
You can probably still buy low.
Anyone looking to resettle?
Toledo News-Bee, April 1, 1916:
Does anyone know if this actually happened, and if so, how long it flew? A quick googling was unsuccessful.
Of course they would. I bet they would also like all the public financing information private as well.
Looks like it will be August 20th this year.

For the majority of Red Sox fans, Ted Williams stands alone. He is not only the greatest hitter in team history, he is arguably the greatest hitter who ever lived. It is a goal he once set for himself, one many in baseball believe he achieved. Who would quarrel with that?
Perhaps the newest generation of Sox fans, the millennials, for whom 10 years ago is considered the Pleistocene Epoch? To them, no one ever has swung the bat or ruled the Sox like David Ortiz. He is their Ted, with better ...Read More...
I’ve read about a third of the book and I’m enjoying it very much.
The latest Robothal.
