I took an interest in Ottavino after reading this interview. I followed his progress to start the year. It’s a shame the injury bug seems to have caught him.
Archie Bradley is one lucky guy.

Maybe it was different actually being there, but watching on MLB.tv was amazing. I wouldn’t want most games to be like this, but as a one-off event it was really neat to actually be able to hear the sounds of baseball.
Some good stuff from BP’s Matthew Kory.
Will Reason pick him up off of waivers?
Craig talks a lot of sense in this article.
Was there really a consensus that Gregorius was a great fielder before the trade? I thought the opinions were mixed.
This may be an improvement over other metrics that are currently available. (I don’t have time to read the detailed breakdown, which I applaud them for providing, BTW.) I would think, though, better metrics for measuring pitchers are just around the corner due to Field F/X (whatever it’s called) data. With that data it should be possible to separate (and this is one of the Holy Grail sabermetric goals) fielding from pitching.
Based on things I’ve read in the past, I was surprised by the writer’s results.
Pittsburgh Press, April 29, 1915:
Good faith? The Yankees are getting a lot of attention based on A-Rod getting close to the record. They can choose to not push the event but their actions don’t mean the event isn’t newsworthy.
Good re cap here of the event at AZ Snakepit and the comments section has updates and photos. The guy is incredibly lucky appears no fractures, but need to re cfm in the morning

Cool to add some veteran presence.
I didn’t see this coming.
What a mess.
Just awful news.
What has happened to music?
The Designated Aesthetic: Why the National League DH Debate Can Be Irrational Without Being Invalid «
Although I’ve preferred the DH for years, I did not much care whether the NL had the DH or not. The daily implementation of interleague play has changed my opinion. You see, I really dislike interleague play. The current implementation of interleague, which sucks for a number of reasons, further penalizes teams which sign dedicated DHs, like the Red Sox, as they lose that bat during 10 games.
So, instead of bickering over whether MLB should get rid of the DH, maybe we can all agree to push ...Read More...
Jon Weisman picks up the torch for the “anti-DH side”.
Although the Angels should have worked to give Hamilton as much support as they could, I can’t buy into the idea it was some type of moral responsibility for them. Hamilton’s sobriety was his responsibility. As such it was on him (and his representation) to make sure he had the support system he needed. I hope, for Hamilton’s sake, that his sobriety isn’t dependent on the Rangers because, no matter how well his battle goes while he is a Ranger, he’ll have a lot of life left to live when his ...Read More...
