Intentional-Walk Immunity, Featuring the Blue Jays

By Neil Weinberg

PUBLISHED: Mar 7, 2016, 10:09 am EST

If aliens landed on Earth and, rather than asking about our political systems or scientific accomplishments, inquired about the last 20 years of baseball philosophy, one of the things you would highlight is the growing disdain for the intentional walk. Certainly, there are times when an intentional walk makes sense, but one of the fundamental lessons […]

The Blue Jays and Phillies Try the One-Man Outfield

By Neil Weinberg

PUBLISHED: Feb 19, 2016, 12:49 pm EST

While it’s technically true that both the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies are Major League Baseball teams, their 2015 seasons were different in a number of non-superficial ways. Yes, they both employed Ben Revere last season, but it’s difficult to find other substantive similarities between the 93-69 AL East champion Blue Jays and the 63-99 cellar-dwelling […]

The End of the Terrible Number-Two Hitter

By Neil Weinberg

PUBLISHED: Feb 8, 2016, 1:00 pm EST

If you’ve recently spent time with other humans, it’s likely that you noticed that they tend to be overconfident about how well they understand the world around them. Think of all of the people you know who have tried to weasel their way out of admitting they were wrong even when presented with strong evidence that they had […]

The Pirates’ Unlimited Supply of Russell Martins

By Neil Weinberg

PUBLISHED: Aug 28, 2015, 1:00 pm EDT

From 1990 to 1992, the Pittsburgh Pirates averaged just over 96 wins per season. They were led by Jim Leyland and what we thought at the time were the peak seasons of Barry Bonds. The early ’90s Pirates were great, but they lost in the NLCS three times and then became the Pirates. From 1993 to […]

A History of Josh Donaldson in Foul Territory

By Neil Weinberg

PUBLISHED: Jul 2, 2015, 1:00 pm EDT

If a person came up to you and made the claim that Josh Donaldson was the best player in baseball, you would actually have to refute his or her case with legitimate evidence. If someone said Rajai Davis was the best player in the league, you could just roll you eyes and get on with […]

The Blue Jays’ Version of Wade Davis

By Neil Weinberg

PUBLISHED: Jan 6, 2015, 2:30 pm EST

Often times there is a fine line between framing a piece of information as analysis and framing it as a “fun fact.” If I were to point out, for example, that Clayton Kershaw’s ages 24-26 seasons rank 12th all time in WAR and that names like Cy Young, Pedro Martinez, Johan Santana, and Roy Halladay […]
