Related to some of the discussion.
 
 

And then the writer reminds readers about the "shutdown" concept introduced by Tom Tango in 2010, defined as an appearance that leads to a 6 percent gain in WPA. He suggests that could replace the save.

Terry Francona's style of bullpen management would drive me up the wall over 162 games but he's a damned fine manager.

 

The reason he'd drive me up the wall is because it's boring baseball. It's also winning baseball but that doesn't mean it's fun to watch.

some kinesiologist like mike marshall needs to devise a safe and efficient way to warm up more quickly. something out of the box like a dyson hair dryer aimed at the arm for 30 seconds, followed by three quick fastballs from 75 feet, a sprint from the bullpen, seven more off the mound and go time. three minutes flat.

I LOL'd pretty hard
