    So you're point is that a year from now you'll have a point? It seems extreme to press that issue. While someone like May may have shown success this year (or ended up like Gibson last year), the...

    What's extreme is using aggregate notions about peak years to any one case. What's extreme is assuming the best data (whether it's minor league numbers or aggregate studies) available overrides...

    Right. The choice doesn't really make sense. So there must have been some sort of impasse. If we accept that not all coaches can work with all players, and we realize Worley isn't going to figure...

    Here's some reports from that BP chat, gunnarthor pointed to.

    Can anyone confirm that Berrios is going to AA today?
  5. In my opinion, successful coaching (or teaching)...

    In my opinion, successful coaching (or teaching) needs to be process-based; if a specific coach has a philosophy, a strategy to carry that out, and a method of communication, you have a good coach if...
  6. That's without May, Vargas, Polanco, Rosario,...

    That's without May, Vargas, Polanco, Rosario, Santana or Pinto. Our upper minors are downright scary. Add Thorpe, Gonsalves, Kepler, and Gordon. There's a dozen guys who could be garner top-100...
  7. Nolasco isn't quite as bad as his numbers. His...

    Nolasco isn't quite as bad as his numbers. His BABIP is .362, fifty points higher than his career. His xFIP is a non awful 4.15. However, he is allowing about 50% more homeruns and striking out...

    This. I think that helping of waiver-wire pie probably allowed for Worley to take reassessing his mechanics more seriously.

    The Twins have gotten miles of out junkball pitchers (too many miles...

    I can see Mauer's life story some day becoming a move titled, The Naturalist.

    And if you're right, the whole QO market suddenly shifts to sensibility, for a single off season.
  11. The problem wasn't the compensation, per se, it...

    The problem wasn't the compensation, per se, it was the forfeiture of a draft pick; there'd be nothing prohibitive (in signing such a player) about compensating the former team as long as the signing...
  12. Right. I think it's interesting to note that...

    Right. I think it's interesting to note that both Drew and Morales are getting paid more for their shorten seasons than Cruz is for his entire one. Cruz may have taken a short term loss, but he'll...
  13. The problem is punishing teams (even bad ones)...

    The problem is punishing teams (even bad ones) for trying to get better. The compensation part of the qualifying offer I see as a positive. It allows for teams to retain star players without the...
  14. I tend to agree, and we'll have a better idea at...

    I tend to agree, and we'll have a better idea at the end of your given his production. While Vargas may turn out to be a competent player, the Twins can't wait on every prospect; he'd be a valuable...
  15. My point, nor I think Cameron's, was to cast...

    My point, nor I think Cameron's, was to cast judgment on Morales. But as little as 84 at bats are, they have added weight when Morales, if healthy, may only have an additional 300; his season is...
  16. I think you have a point. But one year deals...

    I think you have a point. But one year deals aren't awful in general, and in particular, I'm not sure it holds true to these specific players and teams. Texas, Mariners, and Boston probably would...
  17. No one wants to be next year's Kendrys Morales (or Drew)

    Dave Cameron (of fangraphs fame) explores just how poorly Morales and Drew have played and further its possible ramifications on free agency.

    We all know how bad Morales has been, but Cameron...
  18. I'd guess that the other teams that were...

    I'd guess that the other teams that were exploiting the weakness paved the way for Smalley and Bruno to notice it (perhaps independently).

    Normally, I'd agree with you, but in the international market, quality is pretty fungible--the distance for these guys from the major is immense, and rarely do prospects like Sano emerge as such...

    Vargas would only come up in a similar emergency situation as Polanco did; if he keeps hitting, we might see him in September. Vargas lack of position flexible certainly hurts his ability to be a...

    I love that episode where she loses her ability and Riker tells her off. I think it's called the Loss, but it's worth watching just because of how much the Jonathan Frazen (as Riker) seems to enjoy...

    Enterprise is good. It took me a while to get over the fact that it wasn't continuing into the future. But the characters and writing are probably more authentic than any other Trek show, though...

    DS9 really made use of narrative arcs spanning episodes and even seasons at the very end. While nearly all of TNG is stand alone episodes, DS9 moved towards a narrative structure that popularizes...

    Hey, as a kid I was a totally into TNG, but I have trouble wrapping my mind around how Wil Wheaton has any cache even among sci-fi circles; his character was a spoiled douche, and I hated him as a...

    There's the attitude that suggests that "it can't hurt to ask." But, imo, that just sours business relationships, because it shows not only a lack of respect but also seriousness.

    The Astros will...
