Fangraphs: 2017 Trade Value: #1 to #10

Yeah, it finally happened. For the first time since 2011, Mike Trout is not atop this list… by the slimmest of margins, Carlos Correa is our new most valuable player in baseball when contracts are included in the discussion.

Would you trade Trout straight up for Correa?

The Era of Position Players Pitching

Some interesting numbers in this article:

Yesterday, toward the end of an absolute thrashing at the hands of the Twins, the Mariners sent Carlos Ruiz to the mound… The day before, the tables were turned, and as the Mariners were maiming the Twins, the Twins sent out Chris Gimenez to pitch. A few days before, the Padres used Erick Aybar. The day before that, the Phillies used Andres Blanco. The day before that, the Twins used…Chris Gimenez…

Baseball right now finds itself within a number of eras, but among them, this is the era of position players pitching.

Sheehan on Fangraphs: Un-Breaking the Wand

The place I helped build, the site you’re on now… this is the mainstream media. That’s not a pejorative. I write for Sports Illustrated. Christina Kahrl is an editor at ESPN.com. Rob Neyer was on FS1’s baseball coverage. Jay Jaffe goes on MLB Network, as do Dave Cameron and Jeff Sullivan. We’re not that long removed from MLB refusing to let me into the Rule 5 draft in Dallas.
