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

I wonder what the win expectancy was when the Nationals were down 9-1?
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...
Bumgarner rejects idea of DH moving to National League, takes offense at Scherzer’s “wet newspaper” comment
This year’s draft is a jumble.
PECOTA wasn’t the first projection system. Bill James introduced his BROCK2 system in the 1985 Baseball Abstract.
I wonder how much other players with drug problems will be impacted by this whole mess.
Milwaukee Sentinel, April 28, 1915:
A lot of my friends are panicking about the way the Red Sox starters are pitching. As an article graphic makes note, this group has historically been slow starters. It’s surely an issue to keep an eye on but, really, they aren’t this bad. This is clearly not a great rotation but I still believe it’s a decent one. So, at this point, I’d keep doing what the Red Sox are doing. In another month, swap out the starters who haven’t stabilized with one or two of their young starters in Pawtucket and ...Read More...
