Buster Olney on Twitter: “Sources: Manager Joe Maddon has exercised an opt-out clause in his contract and is leaving the Tampa Bay Rays immediately.”
Wow! That’s a surprise.
It takes more than talent to get to the big leagues. Warning: TINSTAAPP.
This is interesting. I’ve been looking at this stuff lately to decipher some of the season-to-season changes in DRS for players. To properly compare the defensive skillsets of players, opportunity differences need to addressed, just prorating DRS to innings is not enough.
Inside Edge tries tracking the “little things”.
Milwaukee Sentinel, October 24, 1914:
He’s correct that Cain led all outfielders with 2.7 dWAR.
He does seem to be an oversight by the voters. I’m not sure how much his time spent in RF impacted his being left off the ballot....Read More...

Hunter Strickland is ruining baseball for everyone.
It’s Jeremy Guthrie’s day.
Well, everybody but Hunter Strickland.
Adam Dunn didn’t invent this approach. It wasn’t a good approach. I followed Dunn throughout his career. Dunn could have been a better hitter if he was more aggressive within the strikezone. I witnessed countless at bats where Dunn passed up a perfectly good pitch and ended up either taking a called strike or whiffed on a worse pitch later in the at bat. Dunn’s method sucked.

The Freak is feeling better.
Knowing Hunter Pence is loving Hunter Pence.

Not many surprises, but Yoenis Cespedes?
A game can go badly pretty quickly. Last night I was watching the game. With the score tied 2-2 the game channel went out on my television.(There was a power outage at the local affiliate.) By the time the picture came back on, the score was 7-2.
We don’t know what will happen in game 3. The Giants could jump out to a 10-run lead in the first. You close out the wins in World Series games as best you can. Herrera just had six days rest. He has another day off today. Using your three best ...Read More...
Serenity now, Hunter Strickland, serenity now.
There is a lot of money on the line for a few of these players.
“I don’t think I can ever live up to matching a wit with Tony La Russa,” quipped Washington. “What I will try to do is put my players in the right position. If my players perform, I don’t have to worry about matching wits; they’ll take care of things.”
A Tim Lincecum sighting.
Chess match? Oh, it’s humor.
That explains it.
