By Neil Paine

Boy, Those Toronto Blue Jays World Series Odds Went South Quick

By Neil Paine

PUBLISHED: Oct 9, 2015, 6:57 pm EDT

Before any MLB playoff games were played, things were looking so good for Canada’s World Series hopes. (The country’s title drought in hockey gets all the attention, but no baseball champ has hailed from north of the border since 1993, either.)

Game Theory Says R.A. Dickey Should Throw More Knuckleballs

By Neil Paine

PUBLISHED: Aug 13, 2015, 3:51 pm EDT

Of all the strategic elements of baseball, few are more fascinating than the poker game between pitcher and hitter. Each participant knows his strengths and those of his adversary, and that knowledge informs both players’ tactics in a complex entanglement of actions and counteractions.

By Neil Paine

As if to put an exclamation point on their recent winning ways, the Toronto Blue Jays went into the Bronx over the weekend and swept the AL East-leading New York Yankees by a combined score of 10-1, narrowing New York’s division lead to a mere game and a half. The Blue Jays’ hot streak has […]

By Neil Paine

PUBLISHED: Aug 4, 2015, 3:49 pm EDT

The Blue Jays bought, the Tigers sold and the Mets couldn’t make up their mind. Baseball’s trade deadline, which passed last Friday afternoon, is all about balancing the present against the future. Whether they’re buyers or sellers (or just renters), all deadline-dealers have to evaluate both their World Series chances for the current season and […]
