Agreed that dWAR can't be trusted to be 100% accurate. However, I don't think we have any reason to doubt that it's at least close. And his 3.7 base running WAR is cumulative - so he accumulated a...

Among batters with 400+ plate appearances last year, Florimon was 9th worst according to wRC+ and wOBA (purely offensive statistics) - ahead of three other shortstops. So I don't think he's a...
Interesting article on Fangraphs here about Kyle Loshe's transition from a thrower to a pitcher. Very interesting perspective. He makes it sound like the Twins wanted him to be a strikeout pitcher...

John and TD crew - thanks for drinking bourbon with us and geeking out on baseball and the law. In my opinion, these agreements among MLB teams and with the cable providers hurt both the competitive...

It seems to me that the annual cost of this extension is nominal. If his arm fall off next year, this contract is not going to affect the Twins' ability to compete at all. On the flip side, "proven...

My first thought was that Suzuki's offensive numbers couldn't be much, if any, better than our other alternatives. Then I looked at how atrocious our catchers have been offensively, aside from Mauer,...

I imagine most of you have seen/read this series on Fangraphs, but I think it's relevant to the discussion:
I think the value...

Wow! Lots of interesting feedback. I do agree that this is the type of stat that is dangerous (and probably inaccurate) to simply aggregate. But replacing those 99 games with a league average catcher...

I was perusing Fangraphs and saw an article about the end of the Doumit catching era. According to the article, Doumit was/is the worst pitch-framer ever. -3.02 strikes per game:...

When I read the headline, I took your analogy differently, more like what Mackey wrote yesterday:...

I love it (only because it's a minor league deal). Yes, he is competing with a handful of other LH power hitting DHs that need to be platooned. If we're only filling a part time DH/PH off the bench,...
When I read your post, I thought you had to be wrong about the offense and run prevention, so I had to look it up.

It certainly didn't work out well. But no one expected Pelfrey to have a 5.32 ERA (4.32 FIP indicates he's been better than that). No one expected Vance Worley to have a 7.21 ERA either (his 5.53 FIP...
The twins have scored 3.98 runs per game and have allowed 4.49 runs per game. In the AL, only the White Sox, Astros, and Yankees(!!) have scored fewer per game, and only the Astros, Blue Jays,...

I wonder how much it will change after this year's draft and after Gibson shows he is recovered from surgery.
I am also a 20 game package F in section 203. Huh.
