The Jose Bautista of the Ivy League

Details By Carson Cistulli

Published: Jan 27, 2015, 3:18 pm EST

Multiple influences led to the composition of this brief post — and I fully anticipate that the end result will appeal to approximately X readers, where X is an integer less than 1. That said, as my fourth-grade teacher at Broken Ground School in Concord, NH, once told me during an actual student-teacher conference, “Carson, […]

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 […]

The Blue Jays’ Version of Wade Davis

Details 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 […]

The Best Pitches of 2014 (By Whiffs)

Details By Eno Sarris

Published: Dec 30, 2014, 3:30 pm EST

There are many different ways to describe the quality of a pitch. We have movement numbers on this site. There are ground-ball rates. There are whiff rates. There are metrics that use a combination of ground-ball and whiff rates. And metrics that use balls in play. There’s a whole spectrum from process to results...

An Attempted Defense of Colby Rasmus’ Defense

Details By Mike Petriello

Published: Dec 22, 2014, 9:00 am EST

Is there a more infuriating player in the game than Colby Rasmus? Rasmus put up a 4-win age-23 season with St. Louis in 2010 and looked like a future star thanks to power, on-base skills (combining for a 130 wRC+) and adequate center field defense. By the end of 2011, though, he was a Blue Jay — […]

The International Bonus Pools Don’t Matter

Details By Kiley McDaniel

Published: Dec 19, 2014, 9:00 am EST

International baseball has been in the news often lately with the ongoing saga of Yoan Moncada (he’s in America now), the signing of Yasmany Tomas and yesterday’s news that Cuba-U.S. relations could be getting much better.  In recent news, at the yearly international scouting directors’ meeting at the Winter Meetings last week, sources tell me there was no...

The Biggest Remaining Lineup Needs

Details By Eno Sarris

Published: Dec 18, 2014, 12:00 pm EST

The Winter Meetings revelry has passed. We’re still waiting on a few big trades to finally ‘consummate,’ but the list of free agents is less attractive by day. Before you turn down a chance at glory with the guys left waiting for a team, it’s probably a good idea to look at how badly you […]

Some Belated Thoughts On The Josh Donaldson Deal

Details 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 […]

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 […]
