Is Infield Defense Really That Important for the 2020 Minnesota Twins?

There’s no denying the Infield Outs Above Average (OAA) stat by Baseball Savant painted an ugly picture for the Minnesota Twins. Sliding Miguel Sano to first base and inserting Josh Donaldson into third will certainly help. Regardless of the Donaldson effect, how concerned do we need to be about the defense?

Buzz on Baseball's Worst Scandal in Decades

In early November Oakland Athletics pitcher Mike Fiers shocked the baseball world by revealing that his former team had been cheating. The Houston Astros electronically stole signs during the 2017 season. Since that day, this scandal has grown to something Pete Rose and Joe Jackson would be afraid of involvement in.
