Dodgers’ Joc Pederson aims to make baseball a contact sport again after second-half struggles last year - LA Times
He looked out of sync in the most of the games I watched him this spring.
Happy (Second) Opening Day!
After watching three games yesterday, it feels a little odd to be taking time off work to “observe a religious holiday and watch Opening Day games”.
The appetizers are out of the way, it’s time for the main course! 12 games, aces on (almost) every hill. Get hype. ESPN will have HOU at NYY, SEA at TEX and LAD at SD, while ESPN 2 will have CHC at LAA.

Both Chicago teams change flagship radio stations for 2016 while the Phillies drop WPHT-AM from their gamecasts.
Baseball on the radio has an appeal that can’t be matched by television and lets you follow the game while pretending to get other things done.
Korean Flagships: 1 (Dodgers)

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!
CHATTER UP FOR 2016!

He will be out minimum 4 months and maybe miss entire season

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.
