    This is where the "Ace" conversation always bothers me. I don't think you need an "Ace" to win the world series, but I do think you need at least one pitcher who has a really really good season, and...

    I would expect that MLB has a hefty D&O insurance policy that would prevent Bud from having to personally contribute very much.

    Why isn't Drew Butera a Pitcher?

    In all seriousness, Drew pitched twice in mop-up relief this week for the Dodgers, the first time retiring the side 1-2-3. He did give up a couple runs in his second outing. According to this...

    These lines seem pretty different to me, especially if you focues on strikeouts and # of pitches. If Deduno had been starting all year and had that line after 4 innings you'd expect to get another 2...

    I agree. I was at work and refreshing a game log. After the third run scoring wild pitch I figured it had to be a website error. I actually game to the game thread here at Twins Daily to see if it...

    Wow, great article and great thread. I've got so many thoughts and could type for hours, but I'll try to keep this to a manageable length. Baseball is definitely my favorite sport. There was a...

    I'm not certain that the goalposts are moving, rather than expectations were unrealistic to begin with, and probably still are. I think we've all been salivating thinking about a team built around...

    This kind of logic results from looking at the team payroll for each individual year in a vacuum. Front-loading contracts doesn't make financial sense for the team because of the time value of...

    Meh.

    All this talk about attitude is interesting and fun, but it is dwarfed 100-fold by results on the field. Thome was known as one of the nicest guys in the game, but the results of his hitting...

    Interesting... I'm surprised the bolded part doesn't happen more often. It seems logical to me that there could be two teams that are both really interested in an out-of-options player but don't...

    Question on Options

    I've done some reading on baseball transactions, but have a couple questions on players that are out of options. Here's the scenario:

    Team A wants to move a player to the minors who is out of...

    My evaluation of pitchers is definitely skewed by how horrible our pitching has been, but Pelfrey's good year look pretty good to me. In 08 he had a 3.72 ERA over 200.2 IP, and in 2010 he had a 3.66...

    I like this signing a lot. He probably doesn't improve the big league club as it stands now but if he's willing to accept starting in Rochester (and I assume he is since it's a minor league deal)...

    Kirby Puckett, Greatness, and Game 6

    Kirby Puckett is my favorite baseball player of all time, and it’s not even close. Of course, I am as biased as can be on this. I first started loving baseball in 1987, when I was 7 years old, and...

    Kepler has hit safetly in 5 of the 6 AFL games he has played including 2 doubles and 3 RBI, for a .304/.346/.391 (.737) line. One good sign is that he has better numbers against lefties than...
