Marco Estrada: AL Contact Manager of the Year

By Tony Blengino

PUBLISHED: Oct 13, 2015, 3:26 pm EDT

Coming into the postseason, the Blue Jays were regarded widely as the favorites to win it all. A historically great offense, a souped-up roster fueled by the trading deadline acquisitions of Troy Tulowitzki and David Price… what could possibly go wrong? Well, the vagaries of postseason randomness quickly paid them a visit, and within 24 […]

The AL Cy Young Discussion

By Tony Blengino

PUBLISHED: Sep 29, 2015, 1:02 pm EDT

Last week, I addressed the Cy Young battle in the senior circuit and titled it “The NL Cy Young Showdown.” This time, it’s the AL’s turn — and “discussion” (as opposed to “showdown”) seems to be the proper way to characterize it. It’s been a low-key pitching season, comparatively, in the AL, with no one […]

Two Pitchers Underrated By Both ERA and FIP

By Tony Blengino

PUBLISHED: Feb 17, 2015, 12:00 pm EST

The FIP statistic was created because of the inherent shortcomings of ERA; so much that was reflected in the traditional pitchers’ statistic was totally out of their control, and the new metric credited and debited hurlers for that which they did. As it turns out, FIP isn’t perfect either...

Some Belated Thoughts On The Josh Donaldson Deal

By Tony Blengino

PUBLISHED: Dec 4, 2014, 9:00 am EST

It’s been quite a few days since the biggest trade of the offseason to date was consummated, but the Nelson Cruz signing intervened, preventing me from getting around to it until now. The move of Josh Donaldson from Oakland to Toronto in exchange for a significant package headed by Brett Lawrie and hotshot shortstop prospect […]

Russell Martin And Big Contracts To Older Catchers

By Tony Blengino

PUBLISHED: Nov 20, 2014, 10:00 am EST

Just like winter, hot stove season appears to be arriving early this year. Somewhat lost in all of the hubbub regarding Giancarlo Stanton‘s record-breaking deal is Russell Martin‘s five-year, $82 million contract with the Toronto Blue Jays. Though it is heavily backloaded, this still ranks as the third-largest catching contract currently on any club’s books […]

Jose Bautista: Force of Nature

By Tony Blengino

PUBLISHED: Jun 27, 2014, 9:00 am EDT

For all of the natural ebbs and flows of individual player performance, the game’s ruling class — the elite of the elite — is a fairly closed society that remains fairly static from year to year. Any given season might have its Yasiel Puig breaking through, or its Albert Pujols conceding his seat. But the […]

Over a quarter of the 2014 season is in the books and the sample sizes are creeping toward a representative level. Over the past couple of weeks, we have been taking somewhat deeper looks at some of this season’s more noteworthy players and performances to date. “Noteworthy” doesn’t always mean “best”, though it does in […]
