The Blue Jays and Slugging Toward October

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jun 15, 2015, 4:05 pm EDT

I think I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again: while most of us understand that the gambler’s fallacy is a fallacy, sometimes it’s easy to see why so many people believe in it. In the case of this post, take the Blue Jays. Through the season’s first two months, they had the third-worst […]

Devon Travis Wants to Be the Rookie of the Year

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Apr 28, 2015, 2:15 pm EDT

Let’s reflect on the FanGraphs staff predictions, shall we? Seems like a great idea for the 28th of April. Every single voter selected the Nationals to win the National League East. Okay, great start. Taijuan Walker got the most votes for the American League Rookie of the Year, and his ERA’s almost 7. Daniel Norris […]

One Week With Kevin Pillar

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Apr 16, 2015, 3:05 pm EDT

You’ve probably seen what Kevin Pillar did on Wednesday. On the off chance you haven’t, we’ll get to that later, at the right time. Let this much be said now: it was absolutely extraordinary. But it also wasn’t the first Pillar highlight of the season. The guy who was supposed to lose time to Michael […]

A Year Without Marcus Stroman

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Mar 10, 2015, 4:39 pm EDT

This time, at least, it’s a little different. Yu Darvish sustained an injury while pitching. Cliff Lee sustained an injury while pitching. Gavin Floyd, Masahiro Tanaka, Jose Fernandez, Matt Harvey, so many of the others — they sustained their injuries while pitching. Marcus Stroman sustained an injury while fielding. His throwing arm is completely fine. […]

Marcus Stroman’s Absurd Set of Pitch Comps

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Feb 13, 2015, 4:16 pm EST

Some weeks ago, I was tooling around on the Baseball Prospectus PITCHf/x leaderboards, and one thing led to another, and I noticed that Marcus Stroman had developed a sinker that looked and worked an awful lot like Roy Halladay‘s sinker. It was a pitch that just came to Stroman during the course of the 2014 […]

How Good of a Weapon Did Drew Hutchison Find?

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jan 29, 2015, 10:00 am EST

Have I mentioned lately how helpful the chats can be when it comes to finding things to write about? You guys don’t know how valuable you are. Dozens upon dozens of questions, if not hundreds upon hundreds, and out of those questions, longer posts can occasionally germinate. This is one of them! Because I’ve noticed […]

Just What Happened to Casey Janssen?

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jan 28, 2015, 3:26 pm EST

Like it or not, this is the time of the year that we write about players like Casey Janssen. There aren’t a whole lot of alternatives. Janssen himself just signed on with the Nationals, to some degree replacing Tyler Clippard at the cost of $5 million guaranteed with a second-year mutual option. The Nationals aren’t […]

Colby Rasmus, the Astros, and Strikeouts

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jan 21, 2015, 9:00 am EST

I don’t think one should require much convincing that the Houston Astros are taking a worthwhile shot in signing Colby Rasmus. Most simply, it’s a one-year contract for a 28-year-old, and it’s worth just $8 million. Rasmus has had a volatile career — last year he finished with a .287 OBP — but he was […]

Marcus Stroman Discovered Roy Halladay’s Sinker

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jan 14, 2015, 2:42 pm EST

You’ve heard it all before. Regress to the mean. Don’t make too much of a small sample. Don’t believe in the predictive power of second-half statistics, if they look particularly different from the first-half statistics. You know all the ways you are and aren’t supposed to interpret a player’s numbers. But you also know the […]

Mariners Get Depth, Blue Jays Get Better

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Dec 3, 2014, 8:00 pm EST

There’s a current story, that Ken Rosenthal has reported and written about. Bryce Harper and the Nationals are butting heads, trying to figure out the specifics of Harper’s arbitration eligibility. At stake are several millions of dollars, now and down the road, and it seems like a situation that could cause there to be bitterness […]
