Russell Martin Ain’t Right

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 Test

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 Buehrle

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 Sox

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 Something

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 Pitch

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 […]

Chris Young Against the Core

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Oct 20, 2015, 3:10 pm EDT

You can detect the nervousness. The Royals stormed out to take a commanding series lead, but then Johnny Cueto‘s own arm abandoned him, wrecking not only Game 3 but also a potential Game 7 as well. So there’s some discomfort there, some uncertainty, and now in a short while the Royals are going to throw […]

How the Royals can cool off the Blue Jays' huge bats ... maybe

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Oct 16, 2015, 11:51 am EDT

The Blue Jays have been crushing balls all year long. How can the Royals stop them? The advice is pretty simple. The execution is a different story.

The Inning That Was Everything Baseball

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Oct 15, 2015, 9:00 am EDT

You’re in a pickle, see. The Devil wants to take your soul, and he’s pretty intent on doing it, but he’ll leave you be on one condition: in the span of one hour, you are to teach him everything there is to understand about the game of baseball. Up to this point the game’s been […]
