  1. Well, maybe. But if other things were masked, they would not show up in testing. Pineda's history of use of pine tar while pitching suggests he is willing to loosely interpret the rules. And he is returning from TJ surgery, and "other substances" can speed healing.
  2. But, he did have left shoulder labrum surgery in October. It might not affect his fielding much but we will find out if his hitting will be affected. Having a reasonable back up plan, Torreyes, seems prudent.
  3. Also, Adrianza had surgery on the labrum in his left shoulder in October. Likely will not affect his fielding but perhaps it will have a negative impact on his offense. We likely won't know until spring training.
  4. Was at Saturday's game and one of the notables was that in the seventh inning Dozier reached on an infielder's error but he did nor run hard to first, essentially trotted there and only reached base because of the error.
  5. The point, I think, of the comment was not that the projection systems are all terrible, but that assigning over- and under-performance to luck might be overlooking some factors that are not currently accounted for. I do not think the comment was expressing a disbelief in math, only that the math might not be as complete as it could ultimately be.
  6. "Luck is the residue of design." Branch Rickey Luck can also be the explanation for what you can't explain. And just 'cause the stats don't yet exist for explaining a phenomenon, does not mean that the explanation is luck.
