Matt Carpenter Is Going Full Jose Bautista106

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jun 27, 2016, 5:34 pm EDT

As you might remember from last year, Matt Carpenter turned himself into a different kind of hitter. He’d already been wonderfully productive, but last year, he seemingly made the decision to exchange some contact for power. So while Carpenter soared to a career-high ISO, with a career-low rate of grounders, he also notched a career-high […]

Michael Saunders Has Been the Blue Jays’ Best Hitter99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jun 21, 2016, 5:59 pm EDT

Josh Donaldson is a superstar. There’s not really any agreed-upon definition of what a superstar is or isn’t, but there are certain obvious candidates, and Donaldson is among them. He hasn’t been the Blue Jays’ best hitter. Jose Bautista is probably also a superstar. He’s aging, sure, but he’s terrifying....

Aaron Sanchez Is Looking Like an Ace99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jun 8, 2016, 4:18 pm EDT

It’s probably no secret that, when the Blue Jays decided to try Aaron Sanchez as a starter, we were skeptics. It was nothing against Sanchez personally; from my perspective, at least, it was really quite simple. As a starter in the past, Sanchez never threw enough strikes. Big velocity and everything, but, not enough strikes. […]

Russell Martin Ain’t Right99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: May 17, 2016, 4:19 pm EDT

News broke earlier that the Pirates agreed to a three-year contract extension with Francisco Cervelli. It’s an easy enough story to analyze in isolation, but to really add depth, you can compare and contrast Cervelli and Russell Martin, who was Cervelli’s predecessor. When Martin left the Pirates, it seemed like it ought to have delivered […]

Aaron Sanchez Aced His Test99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Apr 6, 2016, 4:54 pm EDT

FanGraphs uses Slack in order to keep all the writers in communication, and it’s in there that we claim post topics so that we don’t accidentally overlap. A couple days ago, I made a soft commitment to write about Aaron Sanchez‘s secondary stuff, regardless of how he actually did on Tuesday. The way I figured, […]

Wei-Yin Chen, the Marlins’ New Mark Buehrle99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jan 12, 2016, 4:27 pm EST

There’s a pretty dramatic difference between the two leagues. Anything, of course, could go on to happen, but the American League and the National League are looking at some wildly different 2016s. In the AL, you’ve got a whole gradient of could-be or would-be playoff squads. No single team appears to be dominant, and no […]

What We Know About David Price On the Red Sox99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Dec 1, 2015, 7:52 pm EST

So David Price and the Red Sox have agreed to a seven-year deal worth $217 million, pending a physical that Price will presumably clear with some ease. As part of the terms, Price can opt out after year three, and sometimes pitchers do that, and sometimes they don’t. We’re in a weird place, where this […]

There’s Something About the Royals, or Something99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Oct 24, 2015, 9:30 am EDT

The Royals put me in a weird position. It’s not because their two consecutive pennants make skeptical and critical analysts look stupid — we went over that a year ago, and previously, we went over the same stuff with the Giants. If anything, that part of this is just funny. No, the Royals put me […]

Edinson Volquez Threw a Perfect Pitch99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Oct 22, 2015, 2:21 am EDT

The consolation you hope for is that these uncertainties don’t end up making a difference. That way, you can talk about them, and you can investigate them, but you don’t have to worry about the results hinging on a decision one way or the other. It worked a little like that with the Rangers’ weird […]
