  1. Interesting stuff. On what site is this kind of information available?
  2. Wouldn't that translate to something like 50 more at-bats over the course of the season for the pitcher's spot? Not a big fan of this idea.
  3. There are contradictory terms used in that argument. Over-swinging would mean that he's trying too hard. How is trying too hard being complacent?
  4. I'd vote "who cares?" if it was an option. There are better stats.
  5. He is stealing at 70%, which means that all that running has actually hurt the team. He needs to successfully steal at a better rate.

  7. Hermida has been getting on base slightly more over the last 10 games, I don't see how it's going to do much. I mean, I hope it does help and Ross goes on a streak.
  8. Where is the "who cares?" option? I care more about his OBP and SLG, which are both, unfortunately, lower than last year. Well his OBP is affected because of his avg. If he was hitting 330 like last year his OBP would be over .400 Very good point. How is it a good point? Everyone knows, or at least should know, that OBP is essentially batting average plus walks. My point is that OBP renders BA superfluous.

  10. I think the offense will be fine. The batters had struggled to make the necessary adjustments. Pitchers were generally throwing more breaking pitches and not throwing as many first pitches in the strike zone. It looks like they're starting to adjust. The biggest problem is Hanley being in a funk, which he hopefully broke out of tonight. He had a 17 game stretch where his OPS was .599, which is, of course, brutal. He's too good to continue slumping the rest of the way.
  11. I don't understand the people who want every manager to be Lou Piniella. It's probably people who can't control their own emotions; so they need to see the manager go nuts to feel vindicated. Your s/n is Psycho Sid. You remember that guy. The poster boy for inability to control your emotions. Yes, I chose a silly screen name with the word Psycho in it so I must be psychotic.

  13. Jake's OBP is terrible. Trade him and bring up Dallas.
  14. No thanks. Whatever he had, he's lost it. He also makes too much money.
  15. Despite some mistakes along the way, I was very encouraged by his performance. Encouraged is an apt word here.
