    'piece' as 'peice'. For the life of me I have no idea why. It's the only word where I stop and think, and I always guess wrong.

    That's the key. The more baseball you watch, the more your anecdotal memories and human emotions cloud your perceptions of a player's overall value. Stats quantify the data mined from the eye test,...

    This is a tremendous point. It is INCREDIBLY difficult to accurately criticize/critique on-field management in baseball, because most of the manager's responsibility takes place behind closed doors,...

    Yeah, that's where the article made me feel 'guilty', though the word isn't perfect. I never hated him, but I'd certainly take back a 30-year-old Nick Punto now, he'd be an awesome anchor for the...
