John Manuel gives a little attention to some guys who don’t get enough of it.
I would have hit him too. Craig misses the part where Seager grabs his crotch right when he called time first and before he tells Weaver to throw it over the plate.
In this instance I blame the umpire for not stepping in and telling Seager to get in the box. It was perfectly clear that Seager was purposely being disruptive. Had the umpire kept control of the game the ensuing events would not have happened.
This doesn’t sound promising.
Not bad for the Rays number eleven prospect entering the season.
Buster Posey must have grown up watching Blues Clues.

I had a papal trading card collection as a kid, until my Mother Superior threw it out…
Holy cow, Clemente next to Willie Mays in the outfield?
The bloodbath has begun at the Daily News.
Long-time columnist Mike Lupica is among those who are heading out the door, as owner Mort Zuckerman desperately swings his cost-cutting ax, The Post has learned.
So the A’s on Wednesday called up Barry Zito, their former ace and Cy Young winner, from Triple-A Nashville. Zito, 37, had hoped for an MLB comeback this season when he signed a minor-league deal with the A’s, the team that drafted him in the first round in 1999.
This is likely an MLB farewell for Zito. The A’s — with ...Read More...
How simple of an adjustment is it?
An interesting observation on Arrieta as he takes a shot at being the first to win 20 this year.
“My #### doesn’t work in the playoffs. My job is to get us to the playoffs. What happens after that is ####### luck.” — Billy Beane
Getting lucky doesn’t hurt.

Mike Petriello has access that a lot of us would enjoy having. This article shows the value of the new age stats.
The original Matt Duffy describes his introduction to the major leagues. Casey McGehee sounds like a really great guy.
That rare 9-3 groundout.
It’s a Texas-sized pennant race.

The story Franco tells is that he’d like to spend the next 10 years managing in Japan, then 10 years managing in America, then three more years in a front office somewhere. At 80, he says, he’d be content to retire to a remote hillside somewhere, to grow his own food, make his own medicine and drink his matcha. The gap between that dream and this reality doesn’t seem to matter to him. He’s playing baseball.
For most of last weekend’s four-game series between Toronto and New York, the different levels of the new plutocrat’s paradise in the Bronx were soaked pretty thoroughly in blue. There was singing and bell-ringing. Out on the field, there was a pretty decisive pounding handed out by the Jays and the likely end of the last pennant race in baseball.
They should just play for the love of the game! Love of the game can pay the rent.
I agree 100% with Dave that context matters when we are talking about the MVP. As I’ve mentioned before on this site, WAR is a great overall stat. Other than a general ranking, it’s not something that people should be using in MVP arguments. Unfortunately, it’s also not perfectly suited for a “best player” arguments as well because, although it eliminates a certain amount of context, it doesn’t eliminate enough.
