Micro analysis in real time.
Aaron Judge is one big outfielder.
Will the Giants and Ryan Vogelsong ensure this series goes at least six, or will the Royals and Jason Vargas move themselves to just one win away from eternal glory?

None of us are invincible.
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.

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.

The Series turns to San Francisco in Game 3. The Royals send Jeremy Guthrie, the Giants send Tim Hudson. 8 PM. FOX.

The Freak is feeling better.
Knowing Hunter Pence is loving Hunter Pence.
I was wondering when we’d see The Freak. I guess that’s all we are going to get.
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.
